REWIND is a 24/7 live web channel that shines a light on programs whose runs have ended, episodes that haven’t aired in years and many shows never before available digitally. Programming is drawn from the decades-spanning Media Factory archive – a library of content as eclectic and creative as the communities that produced it.
Cherie and Yolanda LIVE!
1998 - 2001
In the late 90s, Cherie & Yolanda LIVE! was a staple of Vermont cable access—a literal variety show, featuring guest interviews, musical performances, live telephone calls from viewers, poetry readings, and performance art, all filtered through the bawdy and burlesque charisma of hostesses Cherie Tartt (Steven West) and Reverend Yolanda (Yolanda Roger Anthony Mapes).
The guest list was a who’s who of Burlington’s music and theater scenes, and the show celebrated and supported the social justice work of the city’s queer-positive individuals and organizations. The show aired from 1998 to 2001, including the hostile years of the Vermont civil unions debate.
