Legend of the Dot Race – Of the area’s four major pro-sports franchises, the Rangers are by far the most family friendly. Part of that is just the laid-back nature of baseball, and part of it is Chuck Morgan. For most of the last 25 years, Morgan has been the team’s announcer and been in charge of in-stadium entertainment, arranging everything from video highlights to scoreboard marriage proposals. And of course, the dot race. I can remember going to the old Arlington Stadium as a kid and cheering louder for my dot than Buddy Bell, et. al. (And rightfully so – back in those days, my dot had a better chance of winning.) In this program, Morgan will share 90 minutes of his video work from the pair of stadiums the Rangers have called home. Click here to read Unfair Park’s recent interview with Morgan.
R.E.M.: This is Not a Show – The band settles in for five nights of testing out new material in front of a live audience in Dublin. At times, the footage can be so showy and over produced that it can be hard to watch. It’s as if the filmmakers want to make sure you know that a Real Live Person is manning the camera. But the concerts offer a chance to hear some tunes you’re unlikely to hear anywhere else.
