A two-time Emmy Award-winning talk show, returning for an eighth season in the fall--you have heard of "Teen Talk"? Don't be surprised if you haven't. Now airing Saturdays at 6 a.m. on Channel 9 (and at 8 a.m. as well during the school year), KHJ-TV's "Teen Talk" lives in early morning obscurity.
If getting up at dawn is for the birds, today at a special 4 p.m. air time, take a look at an hour of highlights called "The Best of Teen Talk," and see what it's all about.
The subjects--drug use, AIDS, adoption and gay teen-agers--may sound like the usual talk show fodder, but the show's host, Joseph Feinstein, is light-years away from Donahue/Oprah/Geraldo.
Feinstein, a family counselor, a high school teacher and the force behind the show, is middle-aged, stocky and no clothes-horse. A deliberate speaker, intent on eliciting thoughtful conversation, Feinstein doggedly aims for as much clarity as possible in both his own and his young guests' responses.
