Tomorrow night (6/5/13 7-10pm) at the National Historic Museum the Dirty Bourbon River Show will headline the 69th Annual Radio & Television Correspondents Dinner in Washington D.C. Other entertainment includes Washboard Chaz Blues Trio, the Storyville Stompers Brass Band, jazz pianist John Royen, Mardi Gras Indians, and guest Chef Emeril. Yup, Emeril.
Unfortunately, the event will not be broadcasted on CSPAN this year as originally scheduled. This is the 1st year it will not be – for some reason CSPAN deemed this year’s programming to be “not a news event” – whatever that means… is it due to the “New Orleans” theme? Who knows… But well be sure to post pics & video of the event as soon as we have it; these new red suits we rented are something to be seen!
Here’s what I sent to CSPAN: Why are you NOT BROADCASTING THE RTCA DINNER AND SHOW THURSDAY???? This is a tradition. Most of your programming is BORING and this is something entertaining. Have you lost your minds???
I’m so disappointed. I was so looking forward to seeing you on TV. 😦
That really sucks. I so was looking forward to seeing you on TV.
