7 p.m. | Best of 50s Pop (My Music)

The Best Of 50s Pop presents the top pop hits of the Fifties, full of smooth harmonies, joyful melodies and warm vocals by singers and groups who brought songs of love and optimism to listeners tuned to their AM radios. It was a simpler, romantic time with classic tunes and immortal voices that bring back those happy memories with songs and artists such as Patti Page, The Crew Cuts, The Four Lads, The Four Aces, Frankie Lane, Mel Carter and more.


9 p.m. | Sacred Earth

Emmy-award winning filmmaker Jan Nickman has created two revolutionary, visual-feasts of natural wonders, pioneering an entirely new genre of "Nature Immersion Experiences." His films are extraordinary rides that go beyond the discussion about nature and carry the viewer into the experience of nature. Sacred Earth - as well as its companion film, Echoes of Creation -- is exquisitely crafted to allow the viewer to "feel" nature, as if actually being there.

Each film is specifically designed for repeated viewing, to be watched again and again. The film has been successfully tested in pledge and this pledge event was created by KAET-Eight of Phoenix. Pledge hosts are Alice Ferris and Mitch Strohman. As KAET pioneered, the two films can compliment each other in a stack, or they can be used individually anywhere you need a shorter one-hour pledge program in your schedule As the result of director Jan Nickman's pioneering Music-to-Picture technique, viewers can have a new experience with each viewing - in much the same way music is enjoyed repeatedly.

Sacred Earth was filmed in often inaccessible and sacred lands of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and California. Academy-award Winning actress Linda Hunt delivers poetic and contemplative spoken words for Sacred Earth. The original soundtrack was composed by Grammy-nominated composer David Arkenstone, and dancer Caroline Richardson, formerly First Soloist for the Royal Canadian Ballet, also appears in the film.
