    On Saturday, Aug 2, at 12:00 pm, PBS will be airing the Bela Fleck & The Flectones concert that was previously aired on Direct TV.

    Those who havent seen it, even those who dont like jazz/fusion type stuff should check this show out. The musicianship is phenominal and its definatly a learning experience.

    I know they did a show for the 'Austin City Limits' which airs on PBS. This was quite some time ago when Howard Levy was still in the band.

    I remember PBS airing a Flecktones concert on Sessions at West 54th. That was a long time ago.

    Yeah man, that was a LONG time ago. I think that was in support of the Flight of the Cosmic Hippo album. I haven't seen it since it first played though!

    Gotta tape that one!
  9. I don't see it on Cable Menu, is it airing nation wide? and is that 12PM on Pacific time?
  10. Yeah, its not on my digital cable guide either...but after looking up the schedual (of the San Diego PBS) on the website, there's a show called soundstage that's going to be on at 9:00. But there's also Newport Jazz Festival 2001 on at 11:00...I guess I'll be infront of the TV Saturday morning.

    Hmmm...wouldn't this be considered stealing since the same thing is available for purchase on dvd? Where is the RIAA on this one? ;)

    That wasnt directed at you Jared. I know you were just joking. It was me beggin others not to play off it and turn this into an RIAA thread.
