Hi, this is Dr. Wayne Dyer. I hope you enjoyed InsprirationYour Ultimate Calling the first time you saw it here on PBS. And the second time. But lets face it. By now youve got it memorized and youre wondering where Frontline went. So this is just a reminder that were fundraising this monthand we urge you to show your local station your generous support.
This is Peter Blank. Im station manager here at KZZZ 27. We know you appreciate fine programming on PBS such as American Masters and Nova. Im here to tell you that if you dont give generously youll never see those shows again. Instead well make you suffer through Celtic Woman every night of the week.
Hi, I used to be K.C. with the Sunshine Band. I still love that funky music. But we know most PBS listeners still think disco sucks. Thats why we keep rerunning our special presentation of aging funk artiststo remind you of what youre in for if you dont support your local station.
And I'm Willie Nelson, who launched Austin City Limits back in the 1970s. Its still on the air. But not tonight. Tonight they showed Il Divo instead. So if you want to get this nasty-ass Simon Cowell [bleep] off the air and bring back the good, honest American music ACL is known for, please give now! Or next itll be Tosca. Now heres Charlie Rose.
Hello. Id like nothing better than to continue bringing you interviews with Middle East leaders, film directors, bestselling authors, and political figures of all sorts. Ill bet you were looking forward to staying up and catching my show tonight. Then you realized its PBS fundraising season. So instead youll be treated to aerial views of Sicily with insipid electronic music. Theres only one way to make them stop. Pleasegive generously.
Im Lawrence Welk. My image has been resurrected through the miracle of television so I can remind you that not everything on PBS is watchable even when theyre not fundraising. Not only do you get my 30-year-old reruns, you get 15-year-old BBC comedies and Warplane. Just a reminder of what PBS has in store if you dont give them enough to underwrite Ken Burns films.
Peter Blank again. For those who give just a dollar a day, weve got a special offer. Thats right, for $365 or more you can own a DVD of a weeks regular PBS programming. Catch up on all the shows you would have seen if we werent fundraising! Thats Antiques Roadshow, Nature, Masterpiece Theatrea whole week of quality PBS television youll never see if you dont give now.
So back to Wayne Dyer who has a special incentive for you to give. His daughters going to sing for us!
