On Canvas is an Emmy-award winning music program broadcast to a couple million households in New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania on the local PBS affiliates. Back in June, they interviewed Peter Hammill and filmed Van der Graaf Generator in concert at the Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA. This segment of the show is set to air next week. Airing dates are:

Thursday, November 29 @ 10pm
Sunday, December 2 @ 4:30pm
*also* randomly throughout the weekend on their YArts channel.

The VdGG episode will also be posted online for fans all over the world to see on Friday, November 30 @ http://whyy.org/cms/oncanvas/

Various promos will air during the week including TV, radio, Youtube and there will also be information on the On Canvas Facebook and Twitter pages.

If you feel like it, comment on their VdGG threads and 'like' their page (wanna big VdGG up as much as poss). Show goes online Friday for those of us not able to see it.

Now available for everyone to see @ http://whyy.org/cms/oncanvas/

Great stuff. I especially like the end of the program where Hammill describes the long friendship between the three, and how baiting each other goes with the territory!

"We've had such a positive fan reaction to the VdGG On Canvas episode.  We are rebroadcasting it this week, specifically Thursday at 10pm and Sunday at 4:30pm"

Eastern Time Standard
