Now streaming: the July episode of ‘The Munro Review on CMAC’

I’m very excited about Episode 22 of “The Munro Review on CMAC, which premiered Monday. It’s our biggest episode yet and includes two pre-shot stories (producer Kyle Lowe and I interview Good Company Players’ Louise Mandrell about her upcoming “Calamity Jane” and go behind the scenes at a photo shoot for Selma Arts Center’s “Be More Chill”) and two in-studio sets of guests (Joanne Sharp and Jim Spalding of CSU Summer Arts, and StageWorks Fresno’s Joel C. Abels, Amalie Larsen, Ethel Birrell and Valerie Rachelle of “Mamma Mia.”) PLUS: We get to hear Amalie, Ethel and Valerie sing “Dancing Queen.”

You can watch the episode one more time on broadcast TV. It will be repeated 4:30 p.m. Sunday, July 7, on CMAC 1 (Comcast 93, AT&T 99) and at Or, as always, you can watch it forever (or as long as we can keep those servers running) on YouTube:

If you’d like to watch an extended version of the Louise Mandrell interview, including what her famous sisters are up to, here it is:
