We were delayed a month by the tsunami, but Season 3 of Wavelength is off and running. This season we are proud to be the first show in the 40-year history of Pacifica Community Television (PCT) to use a teleprompter, just like 60 Minutes and Barack Obama! Also, all of our shows are available online:
You can go there right now and watch show #23, with Pacifica's City Manager Steve Rhodes discussing his participation as Pacifica's representative in the Sharp Park Working Group, which issued its report on Sharp Park in February. Also, I interview Barry Parr of Coastsider.com on the possibility of Pacifica Community Television taking over operations of Mid-Coast Television, which covers the coastside from Montara to Pescadero. Wavelength airs on PCT Channel 26 (Comcast cable), Mondays at 6:30 p.m., just before City Council or Planning Commission meetings.
Pacifica Historical Society (PHS) has won another WAVE award for its Pacifica Community Television (PCT26) show Footprints of Pacifica. At the western regional conference of public access TV stations last weekend in Reno, the society was given the award for its show "Mary Harris at Shelter Cove." The half-hour documentary featured Mary, her artwork, and her wonderful, natural surroundings. The society has produced 93 shows on Pacifica history and will be part of the archives to be housed in the Little Brown Church Museum and Event Center.
Pacifica Community Television (PCT26) talk show Wavelength won a WAVE Award in the "Magazine" category at an October 16 ceremony in Reno.

All air dates are listed in the Tribune in section B. You may have noticed that for the past few months PCT/Ch 26 has been airing Pacifica Currents "Encore" shows. After 6 years of volunteer producing 87 shows and hosting, I am taking a break! I have been traveling and pursuing art, both watercolor and photography.
If you have a show that you would like to see produced at Pacifica Currents, please contact PCT's E.D., Marty Anaya, 650-355-8000 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you are interested in getting involved as a producer or host, let him know. I am available to mentor and assist!
