All Together Now!: Melissa Gelley
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Produced by many contributors.
In the latest Hudson Valley Word of Mouth segment, Julia Joern visits with longtime Hudson Valley resident and experienced motorcycle rider, Melissa Gelley. She shares her knowledge of some of our region's most compelling routes, scenic vistas, back roads, and rural detours to discover on a motorcycle, especially during the leaf-peeping season. Together with her husband, fellow rider, and motorcycle lover, Steve Joern, Gelley has organized a special screening of "On Any Sunday" at TSL, a non-profit community space located in Hudson (Sunday, October 17, 4 p.m.). Originally released in 1971 -- and now re-mastered and digitally enhanced for its 50th anniversary -- this Academy Award-nominated documentary on motorcycle racing features stars of the sport at that time, including film star Steve McQueen, a racer in his own right. It was directed, shot, and narrated by filmmaker Bruce Brown, who invented a number of filming techniques that, while commonplace nowadays, were considered groundbreaking then.
