The history of the Roanoke Fire Department on PBS

In haste of what some would call my shameless self-promotion, I forgot all about the interview I did airing on PBS tonight. I was interviewed for Blue Ridge Excursions for PBS a couple of months ago and it is airing this week. In case you missed it along with me you will have the opprotunity to watch it again on Sunday April 29th at 730 pm. By the way, the interview isn't about me at all, it is about the history of the Roanoke Fire Department and was filmed in the bay of Fire Station #1. The really cool thing about it is that the RFFA has a tape of an interview that RVTV did with Maurice Wiseman in the 1990's.

That is awsome Rhett.. Is there anyway we could get a copy of the show and the one of Capt. Wiseman.
This is good pub. You are doing a great job with this stuff.

Any possibility of posting a digital copy so those of us who wont be able to see it on TV?

Thanks for the kudos Tom, I appreciate it. I missed all but the last minute of it and it seemed pretty good. I will be getting the disc of the show next week and I will ask about putting it on Youtube. My segment is 8 minutes long and youtube will allow up to 10 minutes max. So it is possible. I will keep you posted if I get it online digitally.
