Time to air !

Well, Its finally here!! The moment. 
Tomorrow is the day that I have thought would never come. D Day! When my first solo TV special goes to air. "All of my dreaming, scheming and screaming become one". Where I feel like Im letting my baby face the world for the first time. I know a lot of you were at the filming, but now its going out to all and the rest! 

I have been told August is a poor month for pledging and therefore can be tough to air a special. That if it doesnt go well, it has knock on effects to further stations airing it and so on and so on. However, I have every belief in what we have put together, and every belief in you, my friends and fans. 
I have received many letters, emails and pigeons wishing me well. I truly believe i have a set of fans that any artist would kill for. Loyalty, love and well wishing has been shown to me in abundance. For that I will always be grateful. 

I say it in my special, and I say it again tonight. This is YOUR special. YOU made this happen. When I was feeling weak, you made me strong. When I was blind to hope, you showed me the way. When it was dark, YOU shed the light. Through days of doubting, YOU reminded me that the dream was possible. That I wasn't wrong to take the road less traveled. Now we stand as one, ready for everyone, believers and non believers to see what we have put together. What all the efforts were for. In that, we trust. Although it may have been tough for other artists and stations to pledge in August, they didnt have an army like I have. They didnt have YOU. Those who believe in a dream. In the American dream. Going alone and swimming upstream....and getting there. 

Although we have achieved a lot, there is much to do. More to achieve. This coming month will determine a lot. If we pledge well, then more and more stations will come on board. Remember, just cause your local station has signed up yet to air it. Fear not. It is available again in NOV/DEC and ALL stations can get it if they want it. You need to tell them how much you want it. Convince the unconvinced and leave the converting to me. Last thing any of us want is to hear..."you should have told us"!! 

In the meantime, I ask, if possible, to pledge during my airing and show your support. Tomorrow I will be live in Grand Rapids, MI answering phones. Its also airing in Austin,TX  I believe. Lets do this folks.

Hi All,

Well after months, even years of planning, my first solo American Public Television special is close to airing. We are currently offering it to stations all over the country through APT and I am hoping it will be on your local public TV station in August and September.
I am very proud of what I have achieved with this special and hope you enjoy it. The tv special is one hour long and the DVD which will be released with it will be just under two hours. So plenty still to see if you get the DVD.
Please click on the link to see a little teaser, and if you like it,let me know, and indeed spread the word for me. Also, contact your local station and ask if and when they will be airing it.
Finally, there will also be a Christmas version due to air in Nov/Dec, so if they are not showing it in August,bug them for Christmas!
This is your special. Its because of you and your support that I have been able to do this. I hope you enjoy it and look forward to hearing the feedback!! Huge thank you to also goes to Phil Coulter, Joe Csibi, Dave Hart, Brent Carpenter, Damian McGinty and Janine Divita. Your contribution to this special has made all the difference. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

Keep well
My Loves
