If you happen to find yourself at home on Sunday, you might want to check out a couple of marvelous music shows that are slated to be broadcast by WMHT-TV:
5pm Sunday: “Independent Lens: Young@Heart”
A delightful 2007 documentary about the Young@Heart Chorus, an inspiring vocal group of Western Massachusetts senior citizens, whose repertoire consists of such songs as James Brown’s “I Feel Good,” the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go,” the Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated” and Sonic Youth’s “Schizophrenia.”
9pm Sunday: “Great Performances: Pete Seeger’s 90th Birthday Celebration From Madison Square Garden”
A gala celebration and all-star concert honoring legendary folk singer Pete Seeger on his 90th birthday – May 3, 2009 – featuring Bruce Springsteen, Peggy Seeger, John Mellencamp, Roger McGuinn, Dave Matthews, Taj Mahal, Kris Kristofferson, Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, more. (The broadcast will be co-hosted by Nippertown’s own Michael Eck.)
NOTE: As a public service, we here at Nippertown.com would also like to warn you that in between those two fabulous shows, WMHT-TV will be broadcasting “Michael Bolton at Royal Albert Hall” at 7:30pm, providing you with the perfect opportunity to take some time off for a quiet Sunday dinner.
