Airs Friday, May 18 at 9:00 p.m. A one-hour music and commentary show about the late musician Levon Helm, drummer for the seminal Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group The Band, and a revered solo artist.

Among the commentators complimenting the music are journalist Anthony DeCurtis, musicians Shawn Colvin, Rich Pagano, David Gans, Grammy Museum head Bob Santelli and others plus archival clips of Levon Helm himself.

Airs Monday, May 7 at 11:00 a.m. President Teddy Roosevelt once described the programs at Chatauqua Lake as “the most American thing about America.” What began in the early 1870s as an experimental school on the banks of pristine Chautauqua Lake in upstate New York has now blossomed into a 750-acre education center which offers an incredible summer music festival. Music floats over the grounds, coming from the practice cabins where musicians spend seven weeks honing their crafts in preparation for concerts.
