Summer reading burst onto the scene at the Milton Public Library with an action-packed kids concert from the Toe Jam Band. Children can learn, get active, have fun and sing along with this high-energy performance that is currently airing during the Library Children’s Hour at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays on the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13).
Most residents have seen coyotes trotting down their street, but many people do not have the facts about this suburban resident animal. The Friends of South Shore Wildlife recently invited coyote expert Jonathan Way to give a presentation at the Public Library covering important facts about coyotes, including statistics on safety, research on biology and tracking of the animal’s habits. Don’t miss this highly relevant discussion when it airs during the Monday Forum at 6:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
The Dedham Choral Society “Pops” Chorus recently performed at Fuller Village, celebrating American folk, popular and Broadway music with their concert, “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over!” This organization of vocal talent has been around for 63 years, so tune in on Music Thursdays at 6 p.m. on the Public channel to celebrate the dawn of summer with this seasoned group of artists.
Jeff Stoodt reviews some top picks from the past year in album releases, movies and short stories on the brand new summer episode of “You’ve Got To Have Art.” Randy Newman’s latest record and movies like “Tully” and “The Rider” are among the works of art examined in this program that is currently airing Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays at 1 p.m. as well as Thursdays at 4 p.m., all on the Public channel.
Pearl, Frank and Tara sort through the news and pick out what is most pertinent to local residents on a new episode of “Fuller Talks.” Local issues like the East Milton deck, state-level bills that may soon become law, and trying to find the bright spots in national and global politics are all on the docket this month. Tune in when this program airs at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m., all on the Public channel.
