Subject: RE: Carter Family on PBS Amer. Exp. 9 May 05
I've certainly been familar with their music for years. However, I did learn more about their personal family life than I knew before. I think in balance PBS did a good job of putting together an interesting hour.
It's a shame that the major feature article in Life Magazine never got printed, being knocked for a loop by the news of the Pearl Harbor attack. Their career had incredible momentum up to that point and certainly would have captured even more of the music market.
