(not in production, but tapes available!)
Street Wise, a Margo St. James/COYOTE production, announced today, that it has successfully completed programming in San Francisco, formerly airing on prime time TV, at 9:30PM, Tuesday nights on TCI Cable, Channel 53 in San Francisco.
Street Wise is a COYOTE volunteer produced talk show delving into hot social issues, ranging from sex to politics and everything between. Guests have included San
Francisco Homicide Detective Vince Ripetto, on the topic of serial killers of prostitutes,
domestic violence and San Francisco's controversial 'School for Johns'.
Tom Ammiano, another recent guest on Street Wise, said that the show is a vital part of
San Francisco's alternative media, providing a broad range of viewpoints on important
issues about the 'streets' of San Francisco.
COYOTE members founded Street Wise and serve as crew for the show. Guest hosts of Street Wise are, sex educator and writer, Carol Queen, union organizer and activist, Maria Abadesco and founder of COYOTE, our own, Margo St. James.
At the show's inception, Street Wise filled a media void providing a medium for
San Francisco Supervisor candidates to vocalize their opinions on issues of concern to
the City. Supervisors Micheal Yaki and Leland Yee appeared with fellow Supervisorial
candidates to discuss such issues as Access to Health Care, and local effects of
Federal Immigration Policy reforms. In addition, Street Wise has featured such guests
as founder of the Cannabis Buyers Club, Dennis Peron, publisher of The Spectator, Kat
Sunlove, and the principal organizers of the Exotic Dancers Alliance, whose work
resulted in the unionization of dancers at local strip club, the Lusty Lady.
Viewer discretion is advised. As Margo St. James says, "We tell it like it is on Street Wise".
