Record a holiday greeting at MATV

Revel in the holiday magic of the season and dust off that old Santa hat. Reserve your spot to record a greeting in MATV’s annual “Holiday Greetings from the Community.” The greetings will play on MATV throughout the holiday season. You can also request an electronic link to your individual greeting that can be shared on social media. Plan to come on down to the MATV studios to sing a song, do a dance, perform a skit, or just spread a few words of holiday cheer. Individuals, organizations, community groups and local businesses are all welcome. Greetings recorded in the MATV studio are free to all Malden community members. If you’d like a greeting recorded off site (in Malden), there is a $10 fee. There is also a $10 fee to provide an electronic link to your individual greeting or a DVD copy. 2014 Holiday Greetings

MATV REWINDS: Flashback to 2002 wedding

In honor of its 25th anniversary, Malden Access Television has been airing programs from one quarter of a century of archives. The idea is to reconnect the community to local history in a creative way. A wide variety of topics and shows have made their way into this “Rewinds” series — to run though late August. One such program is the first ever live wedding of Malden locals Cathy and Jian on Valentine’s Day of 2002. The Chinese themed wedding included traditional music, explanations of decor and symbols, a candle-lighting ceremony and speeches from guests. The bride showed off traditional Chinese dress as well as a typical white gown provided by a local business — just one way in which this wedding mixed cultures from different sides of the globe in a beautiful display of what Malden and its history is all about. To view the full wedding and learn more about MATV Rewinds and programming, visit www.matv.org and tune in to its Public Access channel. –Suzanne Hishmeh
