TONIGHT (Monday, Jan. 11, 2010) ON THE AMERICAN PBS CHANNEL IN YOUR AREA - "AMERICAN MASTERS - SAM COOKE"
This is a program that comes just after DJZigZag has finished reading "Boogaloo: The Quintessence Of American Popular Music" which hung all of its chapters around the life of one of New World African Music's finest voices Sam Cooke.
You may be a little confused watching tonight as to when the doc "Crossing Over" was actually made because so many of the healthy looking interviewees have now long-left this mortal coil. The film's makers had difficulties with Sam Cooke's old manager Mr. Klein and it took twelve years for the film to find its way to release.
One thing is for sure. Whatever your television habits are on a Monday night - this is a program not to be missed.
VanCity PBS viewers - KCTS Seattle at 9:00pm (Ch27 cable)
