Village Interviews: Howard Schoenfeld

7:30 PM
MNN - Channel 67

Dear Friends:

Happy Fathers Day to all fathers and to those who have/have had them!

This evening, Wednesday June 17, at 7:30 on Channel 67, I am re-airing one of (I think the best of) three 29-minute programs of interviews I did with my late father in the late 1990s on Manhattan Neighborhood Network about his extraordinary life and those he knew in Greenwich Village in the 1940s and 50s, including Delmore Schwartz, Kenneth Patchen, Dylan Thomas and James Baldwin. I interviewed him in front of the White Horse Tavern, Chumley's (now gone) and the site of the former Federal House of Detention on West Street where he was held for resisting the prewar draft in 1940. This is a great picture of the Village in the 1940s and 50s.

If you are in Manhattan and have access to Time Warner, you can see this Wednesday June 17th, at 7:30 PM (EDT-that's NYC daylight savings time) on channel 67. On the RCN system, that should be channel 85 or near it.

If you are outside of Manhattan, anywhere in the world, and you have a good high-speed connection on your computer, you can go to MNN- What's On Now or to MNN and click on channel 67 to see it at the same time.

Sometimes MNN does screw up broadcasts, but usually they air things without too many problems.....Be patient.
