Chuck's Picks - "The Walking Monster"

By Chuck Stern

"The Walking Monster" follows a mysterious monster around New York, California and various public facilities. Hosted by professional make-up guru Anthony Jones and his female counterpart, the show is simultaneously fun, sexy and absurd. Tune in the last Tuesday of the month at 10:30 PM on MNN4 to see the madness! Next air date: 5/29.

Chuck's Picks - "Jim Duckworth & Friends"

By Chuck Stern

"Jim Duckworth & Friends," from Charlotte, NC, features the wondrously atmospheric guitar playing of Jim Duckworth (and occasional friends). Jim's playing is a spacey, FX-laden stew of blues, jazz, noise and ambience. His chords are shimmering, thick, at times unresolved, and the show's lighting and directing are immaculate, leaving room for music and interpretation. Tune in Sundays at 3:30 PM on MNN2! Next air dates: 4/15 and 4/22.
