    The last Capitol Fourth was a bit of a disappointment.

    I'd like to see less "pop" and make sure they squeeze in all of the Armed Forces Hymns. We musn't lose sight of what we're celebrating.

    I wonder how much PBS is influenced by government funding....This looks like a tribute piece, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    The Memorial Day Concert is what it is supposed to be. From Wikipedia:

    From the PBS website:

    I doubt PBS decided to carry this annual event because of the influence of government money. It's a better show than the Fourth of July show, but there is enough cynic in me to flinch during the sponsorship listing. Guess why:

    Nonetheless we record it every year because it's usually a very good show and watch it on Memorial Day as it helps us to remember my wife's sister.
