Davis Media Access: Holiday fare available at KDRT, DCTV and online

By
From page A4 | December 26, 2013 |

Like most people, I’m working to put the wrap on 2013 and scurrying to get all my holiday preparations made. As I write this, it’s still well within the “festive season,” so I thought I’d share some of the holiday-themed media recently produced by community volunteers and Davis Media Access.

Programs are archived at http://kdrt.org, for radio shows; on YouTube for recent video (search Davis Media Access); and at http://dctv.davismedia.org.

DMA produced a short piece on the variety of local, seasonal shopping and gift basket service available through our wonderful Davis Farmers Market, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-liwPzHa6I&feature=em-upload_owner.

Ruth Chambers reads her original story, “The Christmas Pudding,” on episode #304 of The Chambers Street Theatre. It’s airing on DCTV Channel 15 on the Comcast system, on KDRT 95.7 FM, and is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMOCkyWFHoc&feature=youtu.be. Ruth is aided and abetted in this production by Alex Silva-Sadder and Ashley Hamlin.

The Davis Chorale, under the baton of Artistic Director Alison Skinner, performed its holiday concert, “Christmas in the Americas,” on Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School. The performance features music from both North and South America, including carols from Canada and the United States.

Also featured are two Spanish carols, “Navidad Nuestra” by Ariel Ramirez and “Carols and Lullabies” by Conrad Susa. The show was produced by community volunteer Dan Dedoshka. It’s airing on DCTV Channel 15 on the Comcast system, and is available here: https://dctv.davismedia.org/node/41381.

The show “Live Tracks” on KDRT is the work of community volunteer Jim Buchanan, who takes his gear to local events and records them. Here’s the direct link to a “Live Tracks” show that in first hour featured a recording of Richie Lawrence and The Yolos, and the second hour featured Davis’ Me & Him with Kurt Roggli and Martin Lewis from their Nov. 7 concert at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall: http://kdrt.org/node/13469. You can also find the Dec. 5 Holiday Show from Odd Fellows here: http://kdrt.org/node/13509.

Also in the hopper, but not yet edited: The Da Vinci/Emerson/Holmes Combined Band Winter Informance, recorded Dec. 19 at the Brunelle Performance Hall, and “Half the Sky, Case Study Africa: Women’s Economic Empowerment,” featuring Nathalie Minya of the Tinogona Foundation. The discussion is moderated by Nicki King of UC Davis and features excerpts from the documentary “Half the Sky.”

It is sponsored by Davis High School’s “Race and Social Justice” class, the UCD Office of Campus Community Relations and the UCD Office of the Chancellor. It was recorded by Davis Media Access on Oct. 17 at the Brunelle Performance Hall. These should be available after the first of the year and I’ll post more information then.

In the meantime, video and audio of all sorts reside in the archives mentioned above. One of our volunteers said to me recently that community media is a gift that gives throughout the year — in support of lifelong education, digital and media literacy, local voices and more. If you’d like to find out to become involved in 2014, please visit our Facebook page, email info@davismedia.org, or stay tuned to this space!
