    Majorly NEBBY

    This level requires considerable thanks. Of course you get the button, the access to the website, your name in the credits on all 6 of the programs, the NEBBY DVD and or downloads in 2018, and you get any 10 Pittsburgh History DVDs (which always make great gifts to folks who love this town) and/or downloads.

If you don't have a favorite spot, Rick will surely have some suggestions.

    Share Your NEBBINESS With A Party

    Again, of course huge thanks come at this level. And it's the same as the "Come Be NEBBY With Us" level above, but INSTEAD OF spending a day with the crew on location, we are offering an alternative Thank You: Rick and his favorite local band, THE BEAGLE BROTHERS, will come to your house or party venue (within a 100 mile radius of Pittsburgh) and provide a house concert at a mutually agreeable time. (One of the Beagles, Read Connolly, wrote the music for our 2 most recent PBS programs!) We can offer only 2 concerts, but this would provide some outstanding music for a party! And you can be as nebby as you'd like.
