LEWISBORO, N.Y. If you want to know whats going on in Lewisboro and its myriad hamlets, you can always ask Henri Wolfe.
Wolfe is the cable coordinator and executive producer for Lewisboro Community Television (LCTV), channel 20, and developing shows for the cable-access channel keeps him very much in the loop.
Ive been very, very busy lately, Wolfe said. We have a lot of things on the burner.
Saturday begins a week of new programming on Lewisboro Community Television 20. One of the new shows that Wolfe thinks Lewisboro viewers will find most compelling is "A Visit with Arlen Roth," hosted by Amanda Kis. Roth is a legendary guitarist who lived in South Salem for many years. In the program, he talks about his early days learning to play, his accomplished teaching career, and his friendships and collaborations in the world of music.
He is known as the Master of the Telecaster, Wolfe says. He is a terrific guitar player who played with people like Simon & Garfunkel. The guy is unbelievable.
During the interview, Roth also talks about the blossoming singing career of his daughter, Lexie. The two will be headlining a day of special performances on Monday, May 28 at the South Salem Presbyterian Churchs Memorial Day Fair and Races.
Also on the upcoming schedule is a show about the recent Meadow Pond Elementary School PTA fundraiser, "Monaco Madness," a casino night that was held at Le Château Restaurant.
It was very much a success and it raised a lot of money for the PTA, said Wolfe, who edited the program. It was hosted by [Deputy Supervisor] Peter DeLucia and Amanda Kis and everyone was dressed up. Peter was in a tuxedo and they actually had a red carpet. They had [the restaurant] all set up like a casino with games like blackjack, roulette and craps.
Also coming to the programming schedule starting Saturday is a show about the Lewisboro Baseball Associations Opening Day.
We do that every year and its always one of our most popular, Wolfe said.
Wolfe continues to work on new programs. Hes currently putting together a short film on Guiding Eyes for the Blind the organization that raises and trains seeing-eye dogs.
Were doing a film to raise awareness about what they do, he said. Its very interesting and it shows how they raise the puppies.
There are also ongoing shows that continue to rotate through the channels programming schedule as well. Wolfes series called, Getting to Know the Merchants of Lewisboro, which features many of the store owners in the Orchard Square shopping center, continues to air. The quarterly town update from the Lewisboro supervisor is also a staple of the schedule.
Weve been doing that for years, Wolfe said. Its like a state of the union, only this the state of Lewisboro done four times a year.
