    I never watch Sunday Television. It is always crap... or so I thought. My girlfriend left the TV on when she went to work, when I came in, a musical act was on. Turned out to be a fellow by the name of George Benson. I only caught the end of it, but this guy did it all, Blues, Jazz, Easy Listening. Very mellow, but interesting.

    It was a program called "Influential Black Artists" is this a common occourance? If so, I might have to start watching Sunday Television.

    Dunno, but george benson is pretty groovy, I only have one album, and while it is primarily a type of smooth jazz vibe, there are some gems on it that are really great.

    Well true, but what of Black History month. In a sense, it's everyone's history, and white people aren't discouraged from learning about black history. But I see what your saying. Why does it matter? Why can't it be a music show? I don't know. I just was hella excited to see music... REAL music on TV. It was stunning.
