Printable Program Guides for March 2017

WSKG HDTV condensed guide

NOTE: WSKG discontinued broadcasting the “World” channel February 1, in favor of adding the new 24/7 PBS Kids channel. But we’ve heard from so many people who really want to see “World” that we’re working to add it back to our lineup within a few weeks. Once we do, we’ll post an updated “World” schedule here.

This Reporter Looked Into Claims Of “Paid Protesters.” Here’s What He Found.

Several Republican members of Congress from around the country have lamented over “paid protesters” at town halls over the last month. Binghamton area Congresswoman Claudia Tenney cited “paid protestors” as a reason not to hold a town hall meeting. John Roby is an investigative reporter with the Press and Sun Bulletin. He and his colleagues set out to find examples of paid protestors across the state. He joined WSKG’s Gabe Altieri to talk about it.

'My Fair Lady' Comes to EPAC


The Endicott Performing Arts Center and Theatre Street Productions present Lerner and Loewe’s classic musical, ‘My Fair Lady’. Often referred to as ‘the perfect musical’, it tells the story of a Cockney flower girl from an unstable family who is taught proper diction by a egotistical professor of linguistics. He does perhaps too good a job when she becomes not only a model of perfect English, but also a strong and independent woman who really doesn’t need him at all, and the tables are turned.  Andrea Gregori and Chris Nickerson talk about the tension between their two characters and about this timeless and tuneful musical.

The DixieKats Release a New CD During Mardi Gras


The Ithaca Dixieland jazz band Casey Max and the DixieKats are releasing their latest CD, ‘Struttin’ with some BBQ’, with a party at Lot 10 in Ithaca on Mardi Gras.  We hear from bandleader David Plaine and percussionist Mark Sammo about the event and what makes Dixieland jazz different from other kinds of jazz, and David tells us about “the Big Dog”.

'An Ear for Drama' Seeks Scripts From Student Groups

You might listen to three podcasts a week, some streaming from a favorite website or others downloaded to your phone… But what entertainment could be found through your headphones beforethe internet? Enter the RADIO DRAMA! Wikipedia reminds us that radio drama first appeared in the 1920s and quickly rose in popularity. In the 1940s, it was a leading form of popular entertainment for children and adults; and one they often enjoyed together. The invention of the television stunted this popularity, but radio dramas have continued to be produced over the past 90 years.
