Many teenagers express who they are through their clothes. But for teens in foster care, getting new clothes is a luxury. Two non-profits came to Columbus Friday looking to change that.
The June Membership Drive on WOSU TV
June marks WOSU TV’s last membership drive of the fiscal year and we’ve got some great specials for you. One of my favorites is BURT BACHARACH’S BEST. I had forgotten how many great songs he has written over the years with his partner Hal David. This program includes all the original artists performing Bacharach’s hits with rare archival footage and clips from the 1960s-1970s. Robert Wagner is our guide for this special and the pledge breaks are co-hosted by recording star Marilyn McCoo, originally with the Fifth Dimension.
If you want a more upbeat experience check out 70′s & 80′s SOUL REWIND HOSTED by Whoopi Goldberg. This latest MY MUSIC special presents more classic soul, R&B and dance from the 1970s and early 1980s. The program captures the smooth, sexy and sophisticated sounds of the greatest groups and solo performers from the MY MUSIC and other worldwide archives.
We’ve also got the opportunity to experience wonderful train excursions with TRAINS AROUND NORTH AMERICA. If you haven’t had a chance to catch our award winning COLUMBUS NEIGHBORHOODS series check out THE BEST OF COLUMBUS NEIGHBORHOODS to get a behind the scenes look at the project.
The WOSU TV on-air June membership drives begins Saturday, June 1 and runs through Tuesday, June 11. Be sure to check the TV page on our website for the most up to date program listings.
