A fellow MATV producer is the guest on “Broad Appeal” for August, as Mel Gillespie, creator of “Actin’ Up with Mel and Gigi Giraffe” joins Melissa Fassel Dunn to talk about her career in entertainment as well as her business, the thespian training and child development company known as the Mel O’ Drama School of Acting. This episode is sure to be entertaining, educational and lots of laughs, and it’s currently airing Tuesdays at 8 p.m. and Thursdays at 9 a.m. on the Public channel.
“The Garden Path” host and producer Christine Paxhia is the focus of this month’s MATV Creator Spotlight. Learn about how horticulture has been a lifelong pursuit for Christine, why she is passionate about it as well as some of the challenges unique to making a show that is so dependent on things like weather and seasonality. This brief segment is airing all around the MATV schedule and is also available on our Video OnDemand page on the MATV website.
As the librarians will tell you, the Milton Public Library is one of the best places in town to beat the heat over these hot summer months, and in this month’s library update residents can learn about the many activities happening in August, new ways to take advantage of the library’s resources from the comfort of their own homes, as well as finding some good reads to close out the beach season. This program is currently airing Monday and Wednesday mornings at 7 a.m. as well as Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m., all on the Public channel.
