February 2015 program guide When humans and nature get together... the possibilities run wild Wednesdays beginning Feb. 4 at 8pm Volume 29 #EarthWildPBS pbs.org/EarthANewWild Number 2 GENERAL MANAGER MESSAGE February is typically “heart” month, when we are thinking of Valentine’s Day and creating awareness for heart health, but in Wyoming, it is also the final month of the Wyoming Legislature, and our production team continues to log hundreds of miles back and forth to Cheyenne to bring you our weekly Capitol Outlook series. We hope these productions have given you insights into the issues, outcomes and process at our Wyoming Legislature, and if you have suggestions for improvement – we always want to hear those ideas. You can call, write or email comments to me, [email protected], or simply call our 800 number (800-495-9788), and tell us what you think about the series. We want to meet your needs! A sad note – and we didn’t learn about it until late – one of our favorite Wyoming jazz musicians and friends, Ronnie Bedford, died on December 20, 2014. With Ronnie’s talent, energy and enthusiasm for music, he founded a 3-day, summer jazz festival in Cody in the mid-90’s, “Yellowstone Jazz”, and Wyoming PBS produced and aired a 3-hour series with Ronnie under the same name. We followed those programs a couple of years ago by producing a new program titled “Ronnie Bedford and Friends: 80th Birthday Celebration”, and to pay tribute to Ronnie, we will rebroadcast that program in March. We are grateful to Ronnie and his wife Janet – and thank them for their commitment to the arts and for expanding the musical horizons of so many people in Wyoming. You’ll note that March 1 IS THE DEADLINE to sign up for our excursion to London and Highclere Castle, which is where the series “Downton Abbey” is produced (see page 15 for more information). The trip is co-sponsored with Casper College, and features Dr. Walt Nolte, the President of Casper College and noted historian, on the trip, connecting us with the events of Downton Abbey, the landscape and our history. If you love Downton Abbey and like to travel – don’t miss this, but get your name and deposit in now! Happy Valentine’s Day and virtual boxes of chocolates to all you. Ruby Calvert General Manager Station Happenings Many thanks to the Lander Library and the 90+ Lander community members for braving the cold and coming out for our Downton Abbey screening event last month!
