Chatter's chief word processor and gadfly extraordinare Ron Davis is starting a new TV show with Doc Larry, another outstanding Springfield blogger. And this show should make John Stewart and other fans of real conversation excited about talk shows again. Called "Street Talk," it will feature good conversation about real issues beyond the talking points of the parties in power. Here's more from the producers:

STREET TALK will be the region's only locally produced program focused on conversation. Real conversation, not the shouting heads on most cable news shows. We remember a time when talk shows actually featured real conversation. When interesting guests engaged in a stimulating exchange of ideas with the show's host. That's what STREET TALK will be.

STREET TALK is deliberately not your standard television public affairs program, with flacks and hacks shouting opinions at each other on whatever subject comes up. Nor will we try to ape the corporate news services by paying phony lip service to the false idols of balance and objectivity as if there were only two points of view and we are above both of them.

Instead, STREET TALK seeks to promote mutual understanding of many viewpoints. We start with the understanding that there are many points of view. We have guests acknowledge where they are coming from, and talk about what they know through research or personal experience. The discussion will be civil, but lively and smart.

Joe Hadsall, the Mailbox's meat-constructed puppet, will be a guest alongside KSGF's Vince David Jericho. Should be an interesting show. It will air Wed. Feb. 1 on Cebridge channel 6 (I think) at 6:30. Should be a good show--a good chaser for right after the evening news.

So does the mailbox mom!
