Tommy Emmanual: shows and tv promos

Tommy's DVD "Center Stage" has started broadcasting around the USA this month. I will be getting weekly updates that I'll be passing on to you so that you can tune in, or tell your friends in those cities to tune in to the pledge drive. We are asking that if at all possible, to make a contribution to the public TV station in that market because if the show is deemed "profitable" to PBS, it will be picked up by more markets, and aired again in those where it has already aired - thus allowing more and more people to hear and see the magic that is Tommy.
