 This is a local cable show hosted by Jacqueline Betterton and George Tsioutsioulas. This show looks for York Region residents (where Ken and Charlie live) who have an interesting story to share. One thing they look for is anyone having a book being published, so we fit right in and we are excited to have a chance to show off our latest books and let viewers know about The Playground and the contribution our members make.

The shows are aired live on weekdays from 11 a.m to noon. Each one has several guests that get about 8 minutes each.

Ken has appeared on DAYTIME a few times now, once with Andrew Dorland, illustrator for Harold Can't Stand to Be Alone.  Charlie, our resident techie, edits the Soul Asylum segments that we load up to our site for you to see. He has edited show tapes for at least two other people who eventually got their own cable shows, so who knows what the future holds for Soul Asylum? - Our own cable show for writers?
