Pledge drive programming

Last night at 10:00pm I was watching the late news in the kitchen while Mom was in the family room watching -- something else. While I was half-heartedly paying attention to my local station's blow-dried newscaster I suddenly heard a very familiar singing voice in the other room.

"Dylan? On TV?" I said to myself.

Yup. It was part one of a two-part show on PBS with clips from the old "Johnny Cash Show," which only ran for two years from 1969 to 1971. The program is called "Johnny Cash: A Man and His Vision," and the second part runs tonight (in Hawai'i; check your local listings).

One of the highlights: a younger Eric Clapton at center stage with his Fender Stratocaster, flanked on his left by Cash and on his right by Carl Perkins, singing and playing an old blues number.
