Ok, praise be unto them (and yeah, i'm facing the delta when i say it....).

Huh? The series was underwritten by Volkswagon. Correct me if I am wrong,
but I think that somehow or another that translated into money for PBS. I do
know they are selling the series CDs at their website for $18.98.  That's
sort of steep (dont you agree), steep enough that a purchase should more
than adequately say "thanks." Do ya get a kiss? You should,
but check the fine print anyway.  chuck

I have a sneaky feeling that many will consider this Yr Of The Blues deal
our fair share for awhile. In other words, once this fanfare dies down,
we're on our on again.
