In case you missed the premiere last weekend, this Saturday night at 10, SCVTV presents an encore telecast of our special Summer Meltdown preview on “House Blend,” hosted by yours truly.
The 12th annual Summer Meltdown Austism Awareness Art & Music Festival, which benefits the Yes I Can program for students with and without disabilities at local middle and high schools, takes over the Santa Clarita Skate Park on Saturday, April 25.
Bret Lieberman, Yes I Can program director at Canyon High, and Summer Meltdown’s executive producer, joins me on the “House Blend” set to tell us all about the marathon all-ages pop culture mashup.
We find out how the Yes I Can students learn important real-life social skills and practical knowledge in the months it takes them to produce the festival each year.
Bret and I are going to play veejays, introducing fascinating videos about Summer Meltdown and the Yes I Can program, plus cool music clips by Dankrupt and Iya Terra, just two of the almost 40 bands on this year’s Summer Meltdown bill.
Get all the details about the festival and advance tickets online at summermeltdownscv.com, and be sure to catch our exclusive “House Blend” preview Saturday at 10 p.m., telecast on SCVTV and streaming everywhere at SCVTV.com.
