Chuck's Picks By Chuck Stern

Not enough '90s gay parade videos in your life? "Rosa Melita's Footage" fills that void, and then some. The show captures the color, splendor and pride of a time long gone. Festive, political and entertaining, "Rosa" airs every Tuesday night at 11 PM on MNN3! Next air dates: 5/28 and 6/4.

Chuck's Picks - "Panscan TV"

"Panscan TV," now on MNN for over a decade, is the "home of irritainment," a place where host Mark Bloch provokes and waxes poetic on the subjects of art, life and politics. The show examines high-brow, low-brow and nebulous middle-brow terrain. Mail art, for example, is a staple of "Panscan"--pedestrian items whose value is often overlooked. Don't overlook this gem, every Tuesday night/Wednesday morning at 12 AM on MNN4! Next air dates: 5/22 and 5/29.

Chuck's Picks - "The Rare Groove Revolution"

Chuck's Picks By Chuck Stern

"The Rare Groove Revolution," hosted by DJ Soulero, is an eye and ear-opening cornucopia of funk, jazz and fusion vinyl from the 1960s and '70s. Soulero listens, nods and occasionally interjects--he makes special note of unsampled tracks to encourage up-and-coming producers and DJs. If you're looking for some genuinely positive vibes in the wee hours, join the Revolution, late Monday nights at 2 AM on MNN2! Next air dates: 5/14 and 5/21.
