The segments produced here as part of the network's "Local Content" tour will be "sprinkled throughout the weekend," but they'll also be shown in two blocks. Here's the schedule...

It looks like segments will be posted online. In fact, the C-SPAN website is already showing thumbnails for them, but they're not watchable yet because they're marked private. It sounds like they'll be available for viewing sometime later on Friday.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
