Spread the word! The Buffalo public television station, WNED, is airing Libera's DVD "Angels Sing - Christmas In Ireland" THIS FRIDAY, October 11, 2013 at 8:00 pm and again at 9:30 pm! This can also be seen in western New York State and parts of Ontario, Canada. In Maritime Canada, Rogers customers can watch this WNED broadcast at 9:00 pm on WNED HD. They will all be the first to see the full DVD!

The DVD is only 1 hour long, but it was given a 1.5 hour time slot as part of a pledge drive or fund-raiser for the PBS station. Libera's Leiden video from 2007 was also used by US PBS stations to raise money. For people who don't live in the US, the TV stations usually play the video in sections with the hosts asking for charitable donations to the station during breaks, and donors receive the DVD as a thank you gift.

The Milwaukee public television station, MPTV, is airing Libera's DVD "Angels Sing - Christmas In Ireland" on November 30, 2013 from 5:00 - 6:30 pm! That's the Saturday night of Thanksgiving weekend! :D 

Milwaukee's PBS station has over 900,000 viewers each week with 2.1 million potential viewers! That's a lot of people that could get to see Libera for the first time!

If you live in the US, you can call your local PBS station to find out if they will be using Libera's DVD for a pledge drive! If you have friends in the US, ask them to call! The more we ask for it, the better the chances it'll be used! I'm going to call our Chicago PBS station today!

You can find out the phone number of your PBS station here. When you call, ask for the programming department.


  1. Milwaukee. We get all the good stuff first. :)
    Hope I'm in town to see it.


  2. There's a WNED HD feed for Rogers customers in Maritime Canada. 9.00PM Atlantic time.

  3. Hi, Tom! Milwaukee is quick, but you've now been beaten by Buffalo. At least you're getting it, though. :D

  4. Hi, Anon! Thanks for the information! I updated the blog to include this. :D

  5. Thanks for the info Lexi! My eyes will be glued to my TV here Toronto watching Libera on WNED. I'll watch it both times!! :)

  6. Hope you enjoyed it, GeeCee! You're one of the first people to get to see the DVD! :D

  7. Portland have got it right 10am Christmas morning! Perfect to have on when the pressies are being opened!

  8. Hi, Anon! I agree! How nice to listen to Libera on Christmas morning! Some of the other cities are using the DVD for fund raising. So people could donate money, get the DVD and GIVE it as a present! Then they ALL could watch it on Christmas morning! :D
