I just shot a segment for a national PBS telethon. Tune in on September 13th for the three hour special live from San Francisco. The telethon will focus on the 60's & feature music & educational programming. Others taping with me were Leonard Nimoy, Carl Reiner, Susan Olsen, Charlene Tilton, Johnny Whitaker, etc. etc. It's so interesting listening to others reminisce about the 60's. I realized that most of the bands I could think of from the 60's started with the word "THE": Beatles, Stones, Doors, Who. Since I'm a California girl, I've always been partial to The Beach Boys. Speaking of which, I went to a screening the other night at the Writer's Guild for a really great film called The Wrecking Crew. It's about a group of Los Angeles session musicians who played on virtually every famous song of the era. The film is currently playing the festival circuit, but if you have a chance to see it, I'd highly recommend it.
If you're a huge fan of PBS (like I am), tune in on 9/13 & show them your support!
