“30 Minute Music Hour” rocks on

Wisconsin Public Television’s 30 Minute Music Hour, in its second season, “seems to grow more ambitious with each episode,” according to The Paper, a webpage of the Madision, Wisc., arts mag Isthmus. The first season began with live online performances that would run on the pubTV station a few days later. This year, the show won’t be posted permanently until it runs on TV a few days after the initial web performance. Musicians play live on the Web and answer questions from a “moderator-turned-stage manager,” as The Paper says. It’s the brainchild of producer Andy Moore, who added: “So far, I haven’t found anyone else on a professional soundstage putting up a live, 30-minute set of music with four cameras and a professional director.”
