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.
"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.
"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.
