Plugging a quality TV program
I've caught this program, Speaking Freely
put on by the First Amendment Center
, a few times. And, well they got me hooked when I saw the interview with John Prine. And last night, they had David Steinberg on, and were talking about The Smothers Brothers Show
, and how it got yanked off the air for political censorship.
Apparently, this it's fifth season or better, and I'm just now seeing it. I don't know if it is because the local Atlanta PBS stations are just now picking the show up, or what. I am certainly becoming a fan. So, I'm plugging it as a show that deals with an issue near and dear to me - my right to speak my mind.
It shows here late Friday Nights, and I'll bet it doesn't show at all in Anniston, AL, where my parents live, so it may be hit or miss as to whether it shows where you live.
The web site, firstamendmentcenter.org:
, appears to have all the transcripts, but I don't have time to check out the site in depth right now [A friend of the Wife's is getting published or honoured or something, and we're on our way to attend the ceremony].
So, check out the show if you can.
