If PBS didn't do it...
...no one would. The latest example? Last evening on "American Masters", PBS had a one hour show on Cab Calloway. It was fantastic. And the reason it was so good was because Cab Calloway was such an interesting, talented singer, dancer and performer, sure, but also because his story also gave so much history of our country during the time he was here, performing and with us. And to think a lot of us might not even know that much of him but for Jake and Elwood Blues, the "Blues Brothers."
