UPDATE: For those of you who looked for us online at WHYY after September 27 and did not find it, the segment was bumped that date for a more timely piece on a museum opening. It is now supposed to air either on Octobe 4 or 11 and we hope you will be able to view it using something like RealPlayer on your computers. Below is all the info you should need to access it. Thanks!
One day a few weeks ago we got a call from Stephanie Aldrich, a freelance producer for WHYY (the local PBS channel that broadcasts out of Philadelphia and Wilmington). She produces arts and culture segments for “Experience Delaware” that airs on the “Delaware Tonight” program on channel 12 (PBS) here on Thursday evenings between 5:30 and 6:00 pm. She explained that she had seen our page on the Milton Arts Guild website (that we had only recently joined!) and subsequently found her way to our blog - www.livecheapmakeart.blogspot.com. She was intrigued by our story of living in Italy, living cheap, taking photos and painting watercolors and by the fact that we were now living in Delaware and thought her local audience might find all of that interesting. We jumped at the chance to be interviewed and about 3 weeks ago she showed up at our home with a cameraman and proceeded to spend the next 3 hours asking all sorts of questions and filming some of my paintings and Bob's photographs and promised to let us know when it would air.
So, if you are in this area and have access to this channel, it will air on Thursday, September 27, at 5:30 to 6pm. This segment usually runs around the last 5-6 minutes of the show. Who knows how they have edited our 3-hour interview down to 3 minutes so it's anyone's guess what it will be like!
We were just delighted to have the exposure and be able to tell our story to an interested listener!
For those of you who don't live in Delaware, for a week after it airs, you can go to www.whyy.org/delawaretonight under the “Experience Delaware” tab to view it online. I had to open Real Player to watch it so hopefully you can make it work for you.
Here’s me being interviewed for “Experience Delaware”. It was such a hoot!
