Sweet Old Song P.O.V. 2002 is supposedly being repeated on August 12th.
I can find no info on this at the P.O.V. website, nor at my local PBS site.
Howard Armstrong, the subject of this 57 minute documentary died last week. He was previously the subject of Louie Bluie (1986) by Terry (Crumb, Ghost World) Zwigoff.
I'm a big fan of Howard's music, including his work with Martin Bogin & Armstrong.
If you have access to this program on your local PBS station would you please contact me?
I'll buy you a beverage, perhaps. Posted Image

James,

It's closer than I've been, thanks. Not really as user friendly as Amazon, I'll email them about the price and availability.
