The second Wednesday of each month just wouldn’t feel complete without a gathering of WCBN-lovers at the local watering hole, illuminated by the glow of a projector on a pop-up movie screen, would it?

Be sure to join us at Arbor Brewing Company this coming Wednesday, Nov 9th, at 9pm for a showing “Weird Al” Yankovic’s classic, UHF. The film stars a community-supported station, off-center on-air personalities, unique programming, and well, what I’m trying to say is that George Newman’s Channel 62 is our television brethren. Don’t miss it.

The above parody is from the film and Yankovic was granted permission to do the song with the condition that Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler played his guitar part. Despite this artist-to-artist courtesy, legal hounds wound up with the name of the song between their hungry jaws. After violently shaking it lifeless, they spit out the uninspired and agitating, distractingly-punctuated title: “Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies*”.
