Thread Name: Review: Kingston Trio Review on PBS
Subject: Review: Kingston Trio Review on PBS
Just got through watching a show on the Kingston Trio on the local PBS station. Don't know if its been broadcast before, but it sure was the first time it caught my eye.

Great history on the Trio and their work. Talks almost exclusively about Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane, Dave Guard and John Stewart, although at the very end the show mentions some others who have performed as the Trio. Interviews with Nick, Bob and John, as well as their main biographer and some other musicians who talk about the influence of the Trio on modern music.

Not having much background on the Trio, this was a really fun show for me to watch. I truly love the trio's music and it was great to actually put some names and visualizations with the voices that I am so used to hearing.

Thought some others might want to keep an eye on their PBS station if there are some other KT fans out there.
