Democratic Visions is hosted by Tim O’Brien and AM 950 Radio's Nancy Nelson when Tim has a schedule conflict. The program was produced until July 2012 at Southwest Community TV's public access studio. The show has found temporary studio facilities at the Lake Minnetonka Cable Commission access studio in Spring Park. The monthly half hour program is produced through DFL Senate District 48 (old 42) by volunteers living in Edina, Eden Prairie and Minnetonka. Democratic Visions has become the best looking and sounding political issues TV program in Minnesota featuring studio guests, segments from the field and satire. Volunteers who are experienced in television production, comedy writing, producing and studio work are always welcome.
