A TV show about local art and why you should watch.

The Rhythm-N-Hues Show is a canvas for local artists and members of the art community.

The budget was tight and the staff was scarce. When reading their lines offscreen, the hosts often forgot to blink. Guests stuttered and stumbled across their words on screen. But that day in 2008 inside her tiny makeshift studio in Tampa, Ordette "Rocket" Rocque saw the stuff that dreams were made of. 

There are people who make art and people who view art; then, there's Rocque. She makes it her business to help local artists realize their dreams. The Rhythm N Hues Show, which originated on YouTube, is a Tampa-based talk show featuring artists and the local art community airs Thursdays at 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 8 p.m. on Bright House 365 and Verizon 32. But there's something for everybody, and I'll tell you why.
