National Memorial Day Concert Previous Broadcasts

Episode #2012H

KQED 9: Sun, May 27, 2012 -- 8:00 PM

This program unites the nation with an evening that has become an American tradition. For more than 20 years, the annual concert has honored the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, their families at home and all those who have given their lives for our country. This year, it will be another outstanding night of television on the eve of Memorial Day with the return of co-hosts and acclaimed actors Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise, and will feature a poignant look at the plight of homeless American veterans, as well as letters submitted to our Memorial Day Concert website from families who have lost loved ones in service in Afghanistan.

Our hosts will be joined by an all-star line-up including: distinguished American leader Colin L. Powell USA (Ret.); the multi-platinum rock band Daughtry; nine-time Grammy award-winner, singer and songwriter Natalie Cole; country music superstar Trace Adkins; acclaimed film and television actress Selma Blair; Emmy, Oscar and Tony award-winning actress Ellen Burstyn; Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor and Vietnam veteran Dennis Franz; and world renowned tenor Russell Watson; in performance with the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of top pops conductor Jack Everly. Additional talent to be announced.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
