Davis Media Access (DMA) is currently doing its annual funding appeal. It’s important that we raise this money each year, as it keeps KDRT 95.7 operational, and it helps support our local election and youth-media efforts.

DMA operates KDRT 95.7, Davis Community Television, and Educational Access Channel 17. DMA is a dba of Davis Community Television, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and all donations are tax deductible.

I See Hawks in LA

Click here to View online
The Folk Brothers hosted SoCal band I See Hawks in L.A. for KDRT's Live in the Loam, Friday, February 5, 2016.
 
The band has an impressive catalogue of original songs that cover the musical terrain of country, rock, psychedelia, folk, and bluegrass. Lyrically, the songs display a wry sense of situational humor that typically isn’t found in this genre. The Austin Chronicle refers to their sound as "a divine fusion of humor and twang that’s definitely high, but not that lonesome."

Basic Camera Orientation - Canon XA-25

Recently DMA hosted a camera orientation workshop for our Canon XA-25s.  During the hands-on workshop, the following slide presentation was used.  As promised, we have posted it so workshop participants can review it at their leisure.

 (although DMA makes no guarantees as to its accuracy)

Lastly, below is a summary pdf of what we covered.

*Please note that all this material was supplementary to the workshop and is not a complete course in and of itself.

PS> It has been noted that the XLR cord release mechanism on the XA-25 audio handle can be tricky to operate.  Some XLR cords have a different style of rim latch which (when inserted) makes it seem like the XLR port release lever on the camera is loose or broken.  You simply have to firmly press the latch all the way towards the XLR cord housing to withdraw the cord.  After cord removal, you'll see the release lever is firm and springy again. This was noted with the long, blue taped XLR cord but may happen with others.
