Hiya Karson. I’m a big fan of Tommy Mac and his web site but I don’t believe the show is available around here yet, at least I haven’t been able to find it. The “look up” thing only takes you to stations and then you have to sort through their programing. And at least to date I haven’t been able to find it locally. Maybe it’s being tested in certain areas though you would think Philly would be one of them. Oh well.

I haven’t seen it in the Seattle-Tacoma area :-(( No early snow in the Rockies, so it should be able to make it to the left coast :-))

I looked up an air time on PBS, but when I tuned in… it wasn’t on. Sometimes I cannot tell which stations on which networks might be broadcasting what shows when you use cable or satellite TV systems… there is variation on your plan, and the regional area. Okay, that is a long answer as to why I have not seen it.

I found it here in MN. It is on october 23rd at 9 am on tpt 2. I am looking forward to seeing it. Although I am dissapointed that the woodturners workshop with Tim Yoder has disapeared. I am sure it is only temporary.

I saw it yesterday and I was impressed. I started a topic on this and we had quite a conversation that you may want to review.
