Tribute to Davy Jones: “’60s Pop, Rock & Soul” @ WMHT-TV


Nippertown television channel WMHT-TV is presenting several broadcasts of the PBS program, “’60s Pop, Rock & Soul.” The show takes on special significance with Wednesday’s passing of Davy Jones, who not only performs on the show, but also co-hosts the concert program with Peter Noone.

The show has been scheduled for over a month, and WMHT has decided to proceed with the broadcasts in tribute to Davy Jones. Jones sings the Monkees’ hit “Daydream Believer” to kick off the show, which also features performance by more than a dozen other chart-topping bands from the ’60s.

“’60s Pop, Rock & Soul” is slated to debut at 11pm on Saturday (March 3). WMHT-TV will repeat the show at 4pm on Sunday (March 4); at 9pm on Friday, March 9; and at 3pm on Saturday, March 10.

    I think this is a great and timely thing, but my question is this: Is it Pledge Break Weekend? Because this kind of programming usually only shows up on MHT during Pledge Break.
