Salute to New York City (Episode #1326)
KQED Plus: Sat, Feb 23, 2013 -- 7:00 PM
From the opening number "New York, New York" to the finale - a toe tapping medley of "The Bowery" and "Sidewalks Of New York", this show moves with the hustle and excitement of the Big Apple itself. Bobby & Cissy dance to "Broadway Melody", Tom Netherton sings "Manhattan", and Joe Feeney and Myron Floren team up for "Give My Regards To Broadway". Sandi, Gail, and Mary Lou sing a sparkling version of "The Walter Winchell Rumba". New York never sounded so good!

The Italian Show (Episode #1323)
KQED Plus: Sat, Feb 2, 2013 -- 7:00 PM
Aladdin, the show's resident Italian, acts as the host for much of this show - and he does it with humor and verve. The Lennon Sisters boat down a Venice canal singing "Santa Lucia", and Barbara and Bobby dance to a spirited "Tarantella". Joe Feeney sings a poignant "O Sole Mio", and Jo Ann Castle romps through "Carnival Of Venice". Filled with a sense of Italian laughter & love, the whole show is, well - bravissimo!
