Music Review: Austin City Limits Hall of Fame: 40th Anniversary

This is a PBS production.  The night was dedicated mostly to Willie Nelson.  He performed the first Austin City Limits, and so it was fitting that he should help in celebrating 40 years.  The story line contends that Austin City Limits is the longest running music program on television.  Although of a different flavor, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has been aired since early 1960's which would make it longer.  They have had a radio broadcast since 1929.  However, 40 years of performances is a remarkable achievement.
