The Doobie Brothers are coming to public TV.
Guitarist John McFee tells us that an edited version of last fall's complete album performances in New York will air on PBS. He especially pleased because of PBS's long association with quality music -- and not just from the classic rock world.
John McFee talked about The Doobie Brothers' New York complete album shows being adapted for a PBS special:
And now, PBS is going to be airing some of this material. They're great! One thing I can say about PBS, not just having to do with us and then airing our stuff, but they're very supportive of music in general. They air classical and jazz and just all kinds of artists, y'know on a regular basis ."
This marks a return of the Doobies to public TV. John notes that several years ago, the band's benefit show for a wildlife foundation also aired on PBS.
Expect the special to air during a pledge week this year. The Doobie Brothers: Live From the Beacon Theatre package will be released June 28th.
