    Journey In Concert: Houston 1981 The music of Journey, one of the 70s and 80s top "hard pop"/arena bands, has become ingrained in American culture. The band has had 18 Top 40 hits, and has sold 48 million albums in the US. And with the use of "Don't Stop Believin'" in the series finale of HBO's The Sopranos, their music has had a popular resurgence. In April 2017, they will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
    Popular lead singer Steve Perry was with the band for a total of 13 years. Since 2008, Filipino singer Arnel Pineda, a virtual Steve Perry sound-alike, has taken the lead. Pineda was discovered on YouTube by Journey guitarist Neil Schon. Pineda's band, The Zoo, was known for covering bands like Journey, Aerosmith, Air Supply, Kenny Loggins and other bands of the 70s and 80s. Pineda had been performing and recording both as a solo act and with various bands in the Philippines and Hong Kong for years, gaining modest success. This concert, part of Journey's 1981 "Escape" tour with Perry in the lead, was filmed in Houston, TX during the height of the band's success.

    Feel Better with Pressure Point Therapy Dr. Michael Pinkus (D.C.) empowers viewers to take pain relief into their own hands. Over the years, Dr. Pinkus has found a way to make Eastern medicine practices easy to understand and accessible to the layperson. Comparing Asian acupuncture charts to Western nerve charts of the body, he cross-referenced which nerve pathways were involved with the ancient acupressure points.
    Where did the nerve travel to? What area of the body did it control or influence? Which organs were influenced by these points and how did this correspond to the nerve pathways in the body? From these observations and many years of hands-on application as a successful Doctor of Chiropractic, he derived this technique which he coined "Pressure Point Therapy." This program shows viewers how they can apply these techniques in their daily lives.
