    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1605H] St. Augustine, Florida Burt remembers a time when it was traditional for our governments to try and be responsive to the needs of the people. Apparently, it's a tradition that is dying out, so he travelled around the United States talking to people and trying to find out what is happening. Along the way, he discovers that each year, over $3 trillion of our taxes are wasted or stolen. He finds the accounts hard to believe and keeps asking, "Am I getting this right". duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Woodsongs [#1906H] Celebration of Merle Travis with Thom Bresh, Eddie Pennington, Katelyn Prieboy and Parker Hastings Merle Travis is a Kentucky guitar hero and an American music icon. Born in Rosewood, Kentucky, his lyrics often discussed the life and exploitation of coal miners. Among his many well-known songs are "Sixteen Tons," "Re-Enlistment Blues," "I am a Pilgrim" and "Dark as a Dungeon". However, it is his master guitar playing and his interpretations of the rich musical traditions of his native Muhlenberg County, Kentucky for which he is best known today. "Travis picking", a syncopated style of finger-picking, is named after him. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970 and elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1977.
    Performing on this broadcast: Thom Bresh is the son of Merle Travis and a world-class guitar master in his own right. Bresh did not begin his music career until his adult years. From age 3 to age 17, he worked as an actor and one of the youngest stuntman in TV and movies, where such programs as 'The Lone Ranger' and the Billy the Kidd trilogy were filmed. Ever since he was old enough to hold a guitar pick, he's followed the unique fingerpicking style his father made famous, bringing it to new audiences. Eddie Pennington is one of the true guitar legends from Kentucky in the same tradition popularized by Merle Travis and Chet Atkins. Parker Hastings is only 15 years old and already is one of Kentucky's premier thumpicking champions in the tradition of Merle Travis, Eddie Pennington and Tommy Emmanuel. Katelyn Prieboy is 19 and from Tampa, Florida. She was recently crowned grand champion at Legends Thumbpicking Competition in Muhlenberg County, Ky., in late September.

    The Kate [#101H] Ana Gasteyer When Ana Gasteyer steps up to the mic, she evokes the swagger of an era when a lady ruled a nightclub and an audience knew they were in for a good time. Her performance is a perfect blend of the tongue-in -cheek comedy you can expect from a former Saturday Night Live cast member combined with the vocal range of a seasoned Broadway star. Gasteyer's eclectic range of covers and reimagined classics like "One Mint Julep" and "I Wish Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate" to her surprisingly smooth rendition of Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats", are the perfect showcase of her musical chops and comedic genius. Gasteyer tells stories with humor, heartbreak...and just a little splash of soda. The patter is real, the themes adult, the lyrics are timeless, and the music swings like crazy! duration 55:18   STEREO TVPG

As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46

It is, essentially, the worst soil possible for anything to thrive. But here, Stephen embeds himself - heart and soul - into their lives on a daily basis. Armed with the power of "real food" (that is, fresh fruits and vegetables) in building healthy minds and bodies, Stephen has committed his life's work to teaching kids to grow it in a one-of-a-kind incredible learning environment that he created. In the process, the real-life application of doing it has transcended all levels of academics: reading, writing, math, science, and so much more. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Yoopera A Yoopera is what happens when you combine Yoopers and Oopera (the Finnish word for opera). The result: An exuberant, operatic, and inspirational celebration of local history and culture. This documentary tells the story of how the legacy of family stories and local history inspired the creation of a major opera and a widespread community celebration of heritage in the beautiful remote Upper Peninsula of Michigan (the U.P.).
    In 1906, the copper boom-town of Rockland, Michigan was the site of a labor strike by Finnish miners. The strike ended in violence and two of the Finnish strikers were shot and killed by Sheriff's deputies. No one was ever held accountable for these deaths and it had a chilling effect on the Finnish community in that town. Within the next few decades, the copper industry left the area and the story was mostly forgotten until it was passed on through the family of Alfred Laakso, a Finnish Rockland resident who witnessed those tragic events.
    Remarkably, through the transmission of family oral history and chance community conversations, the story evolved into an original opera by Finnish composer Jukka Linkola and librettist Jussi Tapola. It had sold-out premieres in both Finland and America and was webcast live to an audience of over 60,000 people in 28 countries. Yoopera! captures the resiliency and determination of an area and its people that is the true legacy of the immigrant experience. It shows us the power of knowing our family stories and what can happen when we share them.
