Andre Rieu: Radio City Music Hall, Live in New York”. For the record, it's no longer live, it was taped in July 2006, which makes it over a year old. It's still Andre Rieu though and he's still doing his thing with some very special guests including a then five-year-old violinist.
9:30 – 11:00PM
Great Performances - "Lionel Richie: Live in Paris". Wow, so many possible jokes here. Most of them having to do with Lionel's adopted daughter and Lionel's adopted daughter's sometime best friend. As people that read this watch PBS though, those jokes probably won't fly, neither for their blueness nor the personalities in question.
Go ahead, admonish me, you know you want to. But, I reiterate (as I did during the last pledge drive) it's not my fault if your PBS station chooses not to air any of this stuff. I just write up what I get told they may or may not air, I don't actually hit "play" on the tape machine. But boy, if I did, what a wonderful world that would be. Just think of it, me, getting to tell others what to watch. I sort of do that now, but it's really only a bunch of vague suggestions along with some subliminal messages… wait, strike that last bit, you didn't hear anything.
