Radiohead is currently prepping material for its next record, the much-anticipated follow-up to the band's 1997 breakthrough album, "O.K. Computer," but fans can catch a glimpse of the band in the documentary "Meeting People Is Easy," whose theatrical run has been extended through mid-June.The film, which has been touring art and cinema houses in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and San Francisco, is now scheduled to reach at least three more cities, including Boston, Detroit and Seattle. "Meeting Is People Easy" was also screened over the weekend on May 1 - 2 as part of Cleveland's annual film festival. "Meeting People Is Easy" will make its broadcast premiere on MTV on May 16, with a 50-minute cutting of Grant Gee's 95-minute film to be shown on a special edition of "120 Minutes" that will also include special interview and performance footage from Radiohead. On May 18, "Meeting People Is Easy" will be released to music and video stores in both DVD and VHS formats. Capitol
