Taping starts Saturday at 3pm at the CAN TV studios. (322 S. Green St...just off Van Buren, 1 block west of Halsted) As always, costumes are encouraged...but Ratso will also be providing some extra costumes for anyone who doesn't have one. Adults and kids of all ages are welcome, but Ratso says be prepared for "lots of treats and a few tricks!" Speaking of Ratso, also be prepared to laugh your ass off when you hear his famous knock-knock jokes in person.

Also...a quick follow-up to a story previously reported here on RFC. The ordinance proposed at City Hall to provide funding for CAN TV passed! Here's what Ratso had to say about it in his last email post:
As some of you may recall CAN-TV, the home of Chic-A-Go-Go, faced an uncertain future, and we asked for your help to write the Mayor and your alderman to support cable access and create a new funding structure. IT WORKED! The mayor and Alderman Stone worked something out and it passed on September 29th! Thank you so much for your help, and if you want to be classy, why not write thank you letters to the Mayor, Alderman Stone, and maybe your alderman.
Email: Alderman Bernard Stone - firstname.lastname@example.org
E-mail your alderman - you can find out your alderman's e-mail here (and who your alderman is): http://www.ci.chi.il.us/CityCouncil/index.html
