World traveller and Fuller Village resident Miriam Roos recently returned to southeast Asia, visiting many of the countries in the region. She took countless pictures, which she uses in this interview to contrast the different stops on her tour, highlighting her many anecdotes. Get some insider tips and perspective from someone who has been to all seven continents when this telling of a travel memoir airs on the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13) Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m., as well as Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m.
Yo-yo master Brett Outchcunis, better known as “Ooch,” recently took over the community room at the Milton Public Library for a dazzling display of all kinds of yo-yo tricks. In this new installment of the Library Children’s Hour, kids can join in for a high-energy presentation that is lots of fun and combines impressive tricks with explanations and learning, not to mention lots of laughs. This program is currently airing at 2:30 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as Tuesdays, all on the Public channel.
The Winiker Band, once dubbed “Boston’s house band” by The Boston Globe, finished off the Fuller Village Gazebo Concert season this past week with their jazzy, big band, swinging sound and personable performance. This concert was an homage to summer, as the trio played the songs that have defined the hot season over the years, as far back as the mid-1800s and up to modernity. Join in the enjoyment when it airs during Music Thursday at 6:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
