If you're a fan of rock and jazz, you may not know or care whether you have CMT, Country Music Television, on your cable or not. Tonight might be a good night to find out, however. At 8:00 Central time, the channel will show a documentary on the making of Bruce Springsteen's We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. They'll follow it at 9:00 with a half-hour special featuring Van Morrison, doing songs from his latest album, Pay the Devil, recorded live at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Really short songs, I am guessing, as the show is also supposed to include an interview conducted by journalist Chet Flippo. Of course, given that Morrison is famously difficult to deal with, maybe it's the interview that's really short.
(And speaking of shortness, apologies for the short post today, and the lack of the regular Friday features. I promise to do better next week.)
