GUEST,Ron Olesko A Mighty Wind on DVD (77* d) RE: A Mighty Wind on DVD 23 Sep 03

I was talking about your comment concerning PBS and bars.

Yes, I do have to agree with you... calling their audience "gleeful geriatrics" is not P.C. I think when we paint these images, we end up painting ourselves into boxes. No wonder young people aren't attending. Of course, PBS chose to paint such a picture in the first place.

Also, you are 100% correct about the ticket prices. I did a little checking and I was amazed.

Not that they don't deserve it, but I do wonder if they end up pricing themselves away from new fans. It is true that they can exist with their current fan base, but it would be hard to attract someone who might be curious at those prices.
