Programming Highlights

  • Phil & Ted's Sexy Boomer Show, Sat. Oct. 1 at 6:00 am with guest Roger Steffens, Vietnam Vet and Reggae Psychonaut

    As a 1960s Goldwater conservative, Roger was drafted, shipped to Vietnam to work in psyops, dropped acid and talked his way into a free pass to travel in-country to help shaken residents and refugees. He was ordered to dump propaganda leaflets from low flying planes on panicked and illiterate villagers, while he distributed Firesign Theatre recordings to U.S. troops from the DMZ to the Mekong Delta, who were tuning in and turning on in the battlefield. Roger returned stateside a different man, speaking out about the war and sharing his love for poetry and reggae music, eventually writing seven books on the subject. Becoming friends with reggae great Bob Marley, he created the world’s largest collection of Marley material.

  • LA Theatre Works, Sun. October 2 at 10:00 pm, George Bernard Shaw's "Major Barbara" starring Kate Burton, Roger Rees, and Hamish Linklater

    Barbara is a major in the Salvation Army—but she’s also the daughter of Andrew Undershaft, a man who’s made millions from the sale of weapons of war. The real battle, however, rages between between the devilish father and his idealistic daughter as they answer the question: does salvation come through faith or finance? This sparkling comedy traverses family relations, religion, ethics, and politics as only Shaw—the master dramatist—can. Adapted by Dakin Matthews.

  • The Lawyers Guild Wednesdays at 2PM

    Tune in Wed., Sep. 21 from 2-3pm for this week’s edition of the Lawyers Guild Show. With ANSWER Coalition’s Richard Becker about Taiwan and the rattling of sabers between the US and China.

  • "I Didn't See You There": Filmmaker Reid Davenport on His Directorial Debut, Ableism & More

    We speak with the award-winning filmmaker Reid Davenport about his directorial debut, “I Didn’t See You There,” in which he reflects on the portrayal of disability in media and popular culture. “Documentary film has traditionally subjugated disabled people, so I wanted to completely turn that on its head” by filming from his perspective without being seen, says Davenport. He says the title of the film is a phrase he has heard from others, and it’s “coded in apology” for ignorance of the way Davenport exists in the world, but that “ignorance is a choice at the end of the day, and an apology is only going to do so much.”

  • Brent Renaud, First U.S. Journalist Killed in Ukraine War, Honored at New NYC Documentary Cinema

    The lobby of DCTV’s new documentary film center in New York will be dedicated to the filmmaker Brent Renaud, who worked out of the historic firehouse alongside Democracy Now! for many years. Renaud was the first journalist to be killed in the Ukraine war after he was shot dead on March 13, 2022, while filming refugees near the capital Kyiv for a documentary series. We speak with Brent’s brother, filmmaker Craig Renaud, who was his partner in the field for decades, and feature some of their work in Iraq and about U.S. soldiers deployed there from the Renauds’ home state of Arkansas. “It’s still surreal at this point,” comments Renaud, who says the theater lobby “couldn’t be a better way to honor him.”
