NPT’s ‘Music Row’ Documentary Premieres Thursday, Aug. 17

Nashville’s Music Row has given rise to epic successes and shaped the future of one of music’s most popular and populist genres. In Music Row: Nashville’s Most Famous Neighborhood, NPT tells the story of how a group of unremarkable bungalows became the heart of the country music industry and helped Nashville become known around the world as Music City USA. The hour-long documentary is narrated by singer-songwriter Pam Tillis and premieres on Thursday, Aug. 17, at 7 p.m. on NPT.

 

 

In the years since the first studio was founded on Music Row, the neighborhood has seen highs and lows, but has always represented the joy and opportunity of music to millions of fans and artists worldwide. It is a physical place that also exists as a dream, an opportunity and a goal. Music Row houses an artistic community unlike any other in the world, a place where collaboration has led to great music and great profits. This unique neighborhood started as a collection of unassuming cottages and bungalows and is now lined by glass and steel structures. The area is in a constant state of change, but still holds on to the spirit that made it so influential on the world’s stage.

“We’d talked about doing this documentary for the last 10 years, but the impetus to do it now was partly because of how quickly Nashville is changing,” said NPT’s Justin Harvey, the documentary’s producer. “And certainly the fight to save RCA Studio A underscored the need to do it now. We wanted to preserve these spaces on film at least and, in fact, one building was lost while the documentary was being shot.”

Music Row: Nashville’s Most Famous Neighborhood first examines how Nashville became Music City, with a focus on the rise of the Grand Ole Opry and the subsequent opening of recording studios in the downtown area. Then, comes the influence of the records made in Owen and Harold Bradley’s Music Row studio and its Quonset hut counterpart. Next, the documentary looks at how Music Row developed into a complete neighborhood housing the full spectrum of the music industry, from session musicians and recording engineers to record labels and entertainment lawyers. Finally, Music Row: Nashville’s Most Famous Neighborhood reflects on what Music Row means today in the changing music business.

Music Row’s story is told through vintage photos and footage, current footage of the area and interviews with Bill Anderson, Harold Bradley, The Bellamy Brothers, David Briggs, Joe Chambers, Sharon Corbitt-House, Don Cusic, Michael Gray, Craig Havighurst, Kathy Mattea, Charlie McCoy, Jay McDowell, Pat McMakin, Bob Moore, Robert K. Oermann, Ray Stevens and Ernie Winfrey.

Additional broadcast times for Music Row: Nashville’s Most Famous Neighborhood are below; the documentary will also be available for streaming via the NPT Passport portal.

  • Sunday, Aug. 20, at 9 a.m. on NPT
  • Monday, Aug. 21, at 7 a.m. on NPT2
  • Tuesday, Aug. 22, at noon on NPT2

‘HomeGrown,’ a Volunteer Gardener Special, Premieres Aug. 10

Here’s something to help your garden grow: A Volunteer Gardener special full of tips shared by experienced gardeners from across Tennessee. The 90-minute program premieres Thursday, Aug. 10, at 7 p.m. during our August Membership Campaign. Jeff Poppen and Annette Shrader host from Poppen’s Long Hungry Creek Farm in Red Boiling Springs.

The Aug. 10th broadcast is also a live night of pledge programming with Shrader, and fellow Gardener personalities Troy Marden, Phillipe Chadwick, Julie Berbiglia, Tammy Algood and Sheri Gramer staffing the phone bank in NPT’s Studio B. Call in, say hello, and support NPT. When you make a donation to NPT, you’ll be able to choose from a selection of Volunteer Gardener-related thank-you gifts, including autographed gardening books by Algood, Marden and Poppen; as well as NPT Tervis mugs and the “HomeGrown” DVD.

In Part 1 of “HomeGrown,” we’ll visit the terraced vegetable garden of architect David Allard, designed to take advantage of a sloped area that gets full sun. We’ll also visit a Shelbyville gardener who grows grain corn in raised beds and we’ll get an update on White Creek’s Flower Farm, a cutting garden of fresh, organically grown flowers. Appropriately for August, Part 2 visits a man who Volunteer Gardener producer Greta Requierme calls a “crazy good” tomato grower in Wedgewood-Houston (right in NPT’s backyard, so to speak) and stays in the neighborhood for a look at the Nashville Food Project’s organic and sustainable farming practices. We also travel to Amber Falls Winery in Hampshire, Tenn., where the soil on the ridgetop is perfectly suited for growing Chambourcin, a grape used to produce red wine.

Part 3 of “HomeGrown” looks at two innovative gardening techniques: aeroponics and growing in a straw bale. Finally, “HomeGrown” highlights gardeners who are, well, a little obsessed with ornamentals.

Additional airtimes for “HomeGrown” are Sunday, Aug. 13, at 9 a.m. on NPT; Monday, Aug. 14, at 7 a.m. and Tuesday, Aug. 15, at noon on NPT2.

Find gardening inspiration each week with Volunteer Gardener Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. on NPT. You’ll find more tips on the show’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.

There Goes the Sun: The Aug. 21 Eclipse via Tennessee Crossroads, NOVA & PBS Kids


Cue appropriate celestial soundtrack… On Aug. 21, 2017, millions of people across the country will cast their eyes skyward to observe the total solar eclipse. The lunar shadow will be 73 miles wide and will take a little more than 90 minutes to travel from Oregon to South Carolina, crossing 13 states en route. Nashville is making an all-out party of the natural phenomenon and NPT’s Tennessee Crossroads is getting in on the fun with a Facebook Live event with host Joe Elmore and Crossroads correspondent Danielle Colburn Allen.

Standing in the shadow

The Tennessee Crossroads’ Total Eclipse Event will be streamed live beginning at 1 p.m. CT on Aug. 21 from the Adventure Science Center during the Music City Total Solar Eclipse Festival. On eclipse day, Joe will talk with David Lockett of Camp STEM from the museum’s roof. Lockett, by the way, is an NPT American Graduate Champion. You won’t need special glasses to watch our coverage – and we’re protecting our camera lens with a special filter – but in order to safely view the eclipse in person, you’ll need to take a few precautions. Joe explains what to expect in the following video.

Our Facebook Live event will last approximately 30 minutes; after that, consider following the eclipse’s path on NPT2, where we’ll carry South Carolina ETV’s live coverage from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Find more information here.

Out of this world

The eclipse will be over by early afternoon, but there’s so much more to see. NOVA’s Eclipse Over America premieres on NPT Monday, Aug. 21, at 8 p.m. and will include footage shot around the U.S. on that day, as well as information provided by solar and solar storm detection scientists.

August 23 is the 40th anniversary of the launch of NASA’s first Voyager spacecraft and a 7 p.m. encore presentation of Eclipse Over America will be followed at 8 p.m. by The Farthest — Voyager in Space, a two-hour feature documentary about the Voyager missions to our solar system’s outer planets. This program combines CGI imagery, stunning photographs of planets, and a soundtrack full of stellar songs. Four decades after leaving Earth, both nuclear-powered spacecraft continue to send data back to Earth. Voyager 1 has traveled more than 12 billion miles and Voyager 2 more than 10 billion. In 2012, Voyager 1, which is traveling at more than 320 million miles per year, became the first human-made object to leave our solar system, ushering humanity into the interstellar age.

Little stars

When the Propulsion family needs to return to their home planet, Sean and Sydney join Jet on an intergalactic journey in Ready Jet Go!: Back to Bortron 7. The one-hour special airs several times on NPT and NPT3 PBS Kids in August, beginning Monday, Aug. 14. To find airtimes, go to wnpt.org/schedule. Ready Jet Go! airs weekdays at 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. on NPT and at 5:30 p.m. weekends on NPT3 PBSKids.

NPT’s Appraisal Day 2017 Brings Mix of Treasures and Stories


NPT’s 2017 Fine Arts and Antiques Appraisal Day was another success. Held at The Factory at Franklin on June 24, the event raised more than $30,000 to support NPT’s engaging and educational programming. More than 21 appraisers from around the region provided attendees with verbal assessments of a variety of items and three NPT viewers purchased in-home appraisals during televised pledge specials leading up to the event.

There was the usual combination of pleasant and disappointing news about the items brought in for assessment. For example, one woman learned an intriguing basket she’d purchased for $5 at a yard sale is worth…about that. On the other hand, an exquisite platinum ring received from her mother was valued at $6,000. The ring dates from between 1900 and 1925 and has a 1- to 1.10-carat diamond in a miner’s cut.

A young family brought a painting of a goblet by Morris Graves that was given to the husband’s grandmother by the artist in the 1950s (her name is written in the artist’s hand on the back). Graves was a Pacific Northwest painter known for his depictions of animals and “supernaturally radiant flowers,” according to his obituary by New York Times art critic Holland Carter. Graves’ career got an early boost when he was included in a 1948 exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. After world travels and brushes with the powerful – Prime Minster Jawaharlal Nehru and his daughter Indira Gandhi; the Duke and Duchess of Windsor – Graves returned to the West Coast and became somewhat of a recluse. His former home, studio and gardens are now a secluded artist retreat nestled within 150 acres of Northern California rain forest.

Marcey Ramos of Phoenix Collaborations (Hermitage) estimated the family’s small painting to be worth between $4,000 and $6,000, based on the few comparable Graves pieces that had come to auction; a larger painting sold for $17,000. This one, still in its original mid-century mounting, will be displayed in the family’s home.

Once again, Appraisal Day attendees were often as interesting as their treasures. A retired CIA employee, for example, talked of traveling to Southeast Asia in the early 1970s for her first post, her young daughter in tow.

(L to R:) Yvonne Smith with Stephen and Elizabeth Smith at Appraisal Day 2017.

Stephen and Elizabeth Smith celebrated 39 years of marriage – yes, to each other, Elizabeth quipped – by attending Appraisal Day. “After 38 years, it’s been there, done that,” Elizabeth said, so she was looking for something special to mark the 39th. The Smiths and their daughter brought a trolley full of items for appraisal, among them Mr. Smith’s Carnegie Medal for heroism and its accompanying documentation, estimated to be worth between $2,500 and $3,500. “We love archival stuff; especially love letters and war letters,” said Wray Williams of Case Antiques Inc., Auctions & Appraisals (Knoxville).

Meanwhile, a sword believed to be a circa-1862 Civil War relic was harder to appraise; it was deemed to be either in miraculously preserved specimen, or a modern replica. Further tests of the metal are required to confirm its authenticity, but the Smiths were happy with its sentimental value and the fascinating, transatlantic backstory explaining its mint condition. The Murfreesboro couple was also happy to pose for their first anniversary photograph in more than 20 years.

Kevin Crane Becomes NPT’s President & CEO; McElroy, Tidwell, Pedigo & Hence Promoted


Kevin Crane has assumed his duties as President and CEO of NPT. Crane joined NPT as Director of Technology in May 2000, and was promoted to Vice President of Content and Technology in 2007. He was recently elected by NPT’s board to succeed Beth Curley, who is now President Emerita.

In addition, he has overseen all of NPT’s broadcast and IT technology during a period of massive technological changes including the transition from analog to digital broadcast technology.

“I’m excited to build on NPT’s success in creating and delivering meaningful content that’s rooted in the Middle Tennessee community,” Crane said. “As technology continues to evolve, NPT will remain committed to making this content available across all digital platforms to better serve our community.”

Four other staff members also received recent promotions:

Beth Curley Leaves NPT (But Stays Close)

Beth Curley at the Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument in Nashville’s Centennial Park

 

By Beth Curley
President Emerita, NPT

My 18 years at NPT have truly been the highlight of my 45-year career in public television. I am so proud of the station that we’ve built for the entire Nashville community.

The major programs and services we’ve developed ‒ including Aging Matters, Next Door Neighbors, Children’s Health Crisis and Tennessee Civil War 150 ‒ embody the ideals that led me into public television in the first place. These programs are the kind of work that I hoped to do when I began my career, and really represent the very best of what public television can and should aspire to. What makes this work so meaningful is that is it’s rooted in the experiences and needs of you, our viewers. Today NPT is an integral part of the educational, cultural and civic life of Nashville, and that’s exactly what a public television station should always strive to be—dedicated to meeting the needs of an ever-evolving community.

Although I am retiring, it’s impossible for me to just fade away! I will continue to consult on a variety of strategic issues and will develop and raise funds for a new NPT documentary on the history of Women’s Suffrage in Tennessee, which is planned for release nationally in 2020 – the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment. This documentary will be part of NPT’s ongoing Citizenship Project, a series examining how different groups have fought for, obtained and maintained the rights and access we commonly associate with American citizenship.

The suffrage documentary is very personal to me, and it is more important than ever for all of us to be aware of this history. If you go to the Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument in Nashville’s Centennial Park, you’ll see my grandmother’s name, Mary Ann McNamara, inscribed on the wall adjacent to the statue. Mary Ann was an Irish immigrant who came to the United States in the early 1900s. As an immigrant and a woman, she did not have the opportunity to vote until well into her adult life, even though she worked tirelessly to make life better for her family. I owe her a debt of gratitude for making my work at NPT possible.


I am excited about all such personal stories that will be told in the Tennessee Women’s Suffrage documentary. I’m sure it will be one of many significant projects undertaken by NPT in the future. NPT has been all encompassing for me, and while it’s difficult to leave, I’m pleased to leave the station in great hands.

I couldn’t be happier that Kevin Crane will take over the reins as President and CEO of NPT. We have worked together for 30 years and he is the perfect choice to lead NPT into a complicated technical future. Kevin will be ably assisted by a first-rate staff and by the same executive team that has worked together for a least a decade. Together the NPT team is creative, committed, energetic and truly believes in the potential for public television to bring positive change to Nashville.

Your public station is in good hands . I will be watching – on air and online – and I’ll remain very active behind the scenes.

Thank you for all you have given me – my life is personally enriched.

Warmly,
Beth Curley

Summer Series on NPT Include Mysteries and ‘The Great British Baking Show’

Favorite characters and series return for the summer season on NPT, including the much-anticipated Prime Suspect: Tennison on Masterpiece and Grantchester on Masterpiece. In addition to mysteries and Sunday night dramas, there’s mystery and drama on The Great British Baking Show, back for a fourth season.

Prime Suspect: Tennison, the three-part prequel to the popular PBS Mystery series starring Helen Mirren, premieres Sunday, June 25, at 9 p.m. This new series retains the dark feel of the original with a nod to the gritty disillusionment of 1970s London as it chronicles Jane’s experience as a young policewoman coping with blatant sexism at work while rebelling against her family’s expectations. Stefani Martini stars as the determined young copper and Alun Armstrong portrays a criminal kingpin in a story based on a book by Prime Suspect originator Lynda La Plante.

Grantchester on Masterpiece airs Sundays at 8 p.m. through July 30. Red-haired, jazz-loving vicar Sidney Chambers (James Norton) and world-wise Inspector Geordie Keating (Robson Green) continue their crime-solving bromance in the third season. Click here to get up to speed on the storyline. The previous two seasons are also available for streaming on NPT Passport.

 

 

War and peacetime

My Mother and Other Strangers on Masterpiece airs Sundays at 7 p.m. through July 16. Though a drama about the interaction of a large military force and a small World War II home front community may seem well-trodden premise, this series has a twist as it is set in Northern Ireland. At the center of the story is Englishwoman Rose Coyne (Hattie Morahan), who is raising two daughters and a son with her Northern Irish husband. Her life is upended by the war and the arrival of a U.S. Army Air Force base and its 4,000 serving men and women.

 

 

Fans of Downton Abbey will want to give Australian drama A Place to Call Home a try. The series premieres on NPT Saturdays at 8 and 9:15 p.m. beginning June 24 and revolves around Sarah Adams (Marta Dusseldorp), a nurse who returns to her native Australia full of secrets from her wartime experiences.

 

Icing on the cake

Cooking competition shows are all over the menu and the television schedule, but none come close to the class and panache of The Great British Baking Show. Maybe it’s the splendid spectrum of British accents, Mary Berry’s impeccable glamour, and the hosts’ groan-inducing puns that make the show so compelling. This season is certainly no mere confection, the challenges (30 total) are difficult, and deflated soufflés and egos are sure to follow. Season 4 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. through Aug. 4; Masterclass episodes will air some weeks (check our programming schedule for details). If you crave more, stream the previous three previous seasons, the masterclasses, and all of Season 4 on your favorite devices via NPT Passport.

NPT’s ‘Cheekwood: A Masterpiece by Man & Nature’ Premieres Thursday, June 22

Cheekwood reopened last week following renovations to return the house and gardens to their original splendor. NPT’s original documentary, Cheekwood: A Masterpiece by Man & Nature, ventures behind the scenes for an in-depth look at the mansion and grounds. The 30-minute program premieres Thursday, June 22, at 8 p.m., and includes sweeping aerial views of the estate; original sketches by Cheekwood’s architect, Bryant Fleming; and footage of the Cheek family’s 1920s tours of Europe.

 

 

Cheekwood was built between 1929 to 1932 by Leslie and Mabel Cheek, as a house designed to look old though it featured innovative engineering. Today the estate survives as one of the few complete examples of the American Country Place Era, a magnificent blend of architecture, landscape and interior design. Cheekwood: A Masterpiece by Man & Nature illuminates the estate’s genesis in European aspirations that resulted in a uniquely American architectural movement.

The documentary also analyzes the inspired aesthetic of Bryant Fleming, an architect who specialized in creating environments that seamlessly blended architecture and nature.

“Even though there were changes that had happened to accommodate the new uses, the seven-acre core of that property was as the Cheeks and Fleming had imagined it,” Charles A. Birnbaum, President and CEO of The Cultural Landscape Foundation, says in the documentary. “We should never take that for granted, because it is a rare place where house and garden still survive today of that era where you can understand what it might have been like to live during that time.”

Others appearing in the film are Jane MacLeod, Cheekwood’s President & CEO; Leslie Jones, Cheekwood’s Senior Vice President of Museum Affairs & Curator of Decorative Arts; architectural historian Hugh Howard; Carroll Van West, director of MTSU’s Center for Historic Preservation; Carole Bucy, Davidson County Historian and Professor of History, Volunteer State Community College; and author Gayle Knight (Bryant Fleming, Landscape Architect: Residential Designs, 1905-1935).

Additional broadcast times for Cheekwood: A Masterpiece by Man & Nature are below; the documentary will also be available for online viewing on our website, wnpt.org.

  • Monday, June 26, at 8 a.m. on NPT2
  • Tuesday, June 27, at 1 p.m. on NPT2
  • Saturday, July 22, at 5 p.m. on NPT2
  • Sunday, July 23, at 1 p.m. on NPT2

 

Cheekwood: A Masterpiece by Man & Nature was produced by filmmaker Mary Makley, whose most recent documentary for NPT was Aging Matters: Living with Alzheimer’s & Dementia. Makley was also executive producer and producer of NPT’s award-winning Children’s Health Crisis documentary series.

NPT’s Cheekwood: A Masterpiece by Man & Nature is made possible by the generous support of Mrs. Lillian ‘Tooty’ Bradford; Carlene Lebous and Harris Haston; Tricia and William Hastings; and Linde and Blair Wilson.
