Chuck's Picks - "Zenbock's Forte'"

By Chuck Stern

"Zenbock's Forte,'" hosted by Zenbock, a mustached "blues alien," is a bleak look into the world of sci-fi conventions and Long Island blues bands. The show features oddball interviews, old-school graphics and a slew of latex and Vulcan ears. It's out of this world! Late Mondays/early Tuesdays at 1:30 AM on MNN1; next air dates: 3/6 and 3/20.
