The first NEBBY program premieres tonight at 8PM on WQED!

I just wanted to make sure you know that tonight, October 5, at 8PM will be the premiere broadcast of our first NEBBY program, the one titled A SHORT HISTORY OF ROUTE 88.

We have had a wonderful time gathering and editing the material (interviews, traveling shots, places to eat, discoveries galore!) and I think it's a fast half hour. I hope you like it.

You helped make this program possible. You really truly did. Thank you!

      Very enjoyable episode. I wish it had been longer. Maybe someday a part 2?
