Davis Media Access: Looking back at a successful year

By
From page A10 | November 29, 2013 |

I’m currently immersed in writing the 2012-13 annual report for Davis Media Access. It’s always an interesting exercise, allowing me to tell the story of our organization.

I find myself thinking about what was significant about the past year. What were our successes? What can we do differently, and better? I’ll share a link next month, but for now I’m happy to provide these updates from your community media center.

Gearing up for the festive season: The board and staff at Davis Media Access cordially invite interested community members to DMA’s annual Holiday Open House from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, Dec. 2, at the media center, 1623 Fifth St. in Davis. If you’ve been curious about DMA, or would like to meet or chat with some of your favorite local radio or TV personalities, then please come on by.

Drop in at any point for a beverage, some tasty treats and good company. There will be green-screen fun, and at 7:30 we’ll take some time to honor our fabulous volunteer community. We look forward to seeing you as we celebrate the holidays, and the role of community-based media here in Davis. Parking is available on Fifth or L streets.

Recently on “In the Studio”: DMA produces four episodes of “In the Studio” each month. The program gives local newsmakers and community organizations easy ways to promote their services and events. The recording sessions are used as a hands-on learning lab for local residents who are interested in media production.

“In the Studio” airs Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays at 7 p.m. on DCTV, Comcast Channel 15, and on demand at Menu 99 on AT&T’s U-verse. Episodes are archived at http://dctv.davismedia.org. Recent episodes include:

* Episode 337: “About KDRT.” Lin Weaver hosts Craig Blomberg, chair of the KDRT Steering Committee; Doug Kelly, programmer and Steering Committee member; and Jim Buchanan, programmer and remote recording manager.
* Episode 338: “Understanding the News Media.” Weaver hosts Amber Boydstun, assistant professor of political science at UC Davis and the author of several books on understanding the news media.
* Episode 340: ‘Understanding Obamacare.” Weaver hosts Anne Gonzales, public information officer for Covered California.
* Episode 341: “Trans-Pacific Partnership.” Weaver hosts Jim Leonard, local activist; Nancy Price, activist and author; and Nick Buxton, communications consultant and activist.
“Egyptian Update”: Kirk Lewis, a community producer and volunteer with DMA, highlights the unfolding political situation in Egypt with an occasional series of programs called “Egyptian Update.” The most recent was recorded two weeks ago in DMA’s studios, and features Ashraf Seddeek of the American Egyptian Strategic Alliance interviewing Nancy Zayed, American Egyptian activist, and Saher Yassa, of Saint Mary’s Coptic Church and an architect.

The episode is airing on DCTV, Comcast Channel 15, and on demand at Menu 99 on AT&T’s U-verse, and is available on demand at https://dctv.davismedia.org/node/41273. More information is available at http://americanegyptiansa.org.
Davis Parent University: DMA will record the Dec. 6 presentation by Mike Riera, Ph.D., a nationally renowned speaker and best-selling author. Look for air dates in January, and find past programs and more information at http://dctv.davismedia.org/dpu.

Andrew Bird on KDRT: Every Wednesday, Dug Deep hosts a weekly dig through many interesting and occasionally obscure sound forms from 7 to 9 p.m. on the “Electric Compost Heap” on KDRT, 95.7 FM. A recent show features an interview with famed violinist Andrew Bird prior to his appearance at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. Hear it at http://www.kdrt.org/node/13283.
