The fall season starts at Davis Media Access

From page A3 | August 29, 2013 |

I have an old Nancy Griffith song playing in my head, one about turning around, metaphorically, to see a young girl growing to a woman, but I’m applying it to the grand arc of this year. It was January the last time I turned around, wasn’t it?

It wasn’t, of course, and now here we are on the cusp of September, the time I refer to as “When Everything Starts.” In preparing my own children for their return to school, I’m hip-deep in calendars and long-range planning, and that also means I’m thinking about what comes next for Davis Media Access. Here are some current musings:

* Fall internships begin: Available to DJUSD students, DMA’s internship provides hands-on experience and exposure to many aspects of community television production. The internship focuses on coverage of DJSUD sporting and performing arts events, as a component of DMA’s partnership with DJUSD Educational Access Television Channel 17. Interns must be at least 16 years old and able to work 3-6 hours per week, generally between 5-10 p.m. Additionally, they must be self-motivated, able to work well with a diverse group of people, able to demonstrate aptitude with computers or video equipment. Training is provided, and academic credit is available when possible. The deadline to apply is Sept. 13. Please see davismedia.org for the internship description. Interested applicants may submit a resume or brief letter describing their skills and any personal goals related to the internship. Please submit to DMA Production Manager Jeff Shaw at jeff@davismedia.org.

*A large election looms: In June 2014, Davis voters will make their choices for City Council, cast votes in the hotly contested primary race for the 4th Assembly District, and may also vote on several ballot initiatives. DMA starts our planning now, beginning to map out what coverage we’ll provide. Typically, this includes a mix of candidate statements, community forums and debates, as well as election-night coverage. In an election with many races, DMA typically provides close to 200 hours of voter education programming, provided free to candidates and community groups, making it available via cable television, local radio and the Internet. Much of this programming happens in partnership with other community groups. If there’s an election-related issue we need to know about, please email info@davismedia.org.

* From across the globe to here at home: A visit to https://dctv.davismedia.org/node/39784 yields a collection of shows produced by volunteer Kirk Lewis, both as part of “In The Studio” and independently. This mini archive features the Egyptian Revolution, with shows hosted by Dr. Hamza El-Nahkal, Professor Emeritus of UC Davis. Four shows in this collection feature a variety of interviews and document a local response to the events that began unfolding in Egypt in 2011.

* And from KDRT: Davis Odd Fellows kicks off its Thursday Live! fall series of free concerts with Rita Hosking and One Button Suite, Thursday, Sept. 6. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in Davis. KDRT Operations Assistant and radio host extraordinaire Jim Buchanan will no doubt be on the scene, as he records these shows for later replay on his show, “Live Tracks (KDRT, Thursdays 8-10 p.m., KDRT 95.7 FM & htto://kdrt.org).

And finally, what are the chances of having two brothers produce radically different but equally wonderful programs on your hometown radio station? Bill Buchanan has interviewed an array of Davis notables in his years hosting “Davisville” (Mondays at 5:30 p.m. on KDRT and kdrt.org). Currently featured is a two-part interview with Rob White, chief innovation officer for the city of Davis. http://kdrt.org/node/867 for downloads of recent shows.
