    They are or will be on dvd and probably Netflix, but pbs always repeats thing like the Ken Burns documentaries so just keep an eye open for that and record the series.

    I am retired and have no payments of any sort (excluding household stuff like water, gas, electric, phone (land line), and Direct TV). The difference between that and the next level is a DVD and CD with little difference in money. The front row is much higher if you look at the real time tickets for the event. I also have seen the Australian concert in Oakland and not impressed with them much...…..Jetspray

    Re: Ken Burns documentary Country Music

    When I lived in Texas as a kid I saw so many amazing country acts. Once I moved to California it was mostly just rock and rap. I miss those younger days in Texas hunting and fishing near George Straits ranch etc. Hope I get to check out this documentary soon. Does it have anything about Texas in it? Thanks for the recommendation as well!

    a good old country hoedown is one of the most entertaining events I have ever been to. they did all
    kinds of dances from the two-step to square, waltzes. imop, there are 2 kinds of music, country and western.
    be safe
