    Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps [#509H] Angelina's Trick-Or-Treat Feat/Angelina and the Laughing Poet * Angelina's Trick-or-Treat Feat - The mouselings' Halloween costumes don't arrive in time for Trick or Treat. What will Angelina and her friends do? How can they Trick or Treat without costumes? When they decide to use creative ways to express their characters through dance, they realize they didn't need costumes after all!
    * Angelina and the Laughing Poet - Ms. Mimi teaches the students about poetry. She wants them to use dance to convey emotions in a poem. When Alice gets the giggles, she is unable to express her assigned emotion correctly. No matter how hard her friends try to help, Alice just can't stop smiling! Luckily, Ms Mimi and some melancholic piano music help Alice change her mood - and her dancing.

Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
