Re: Straight to Video
PBS has no control over where we market the DVD and CD. We opted to make them available to Kingston Trio fans as soon as they were produced. The distribution to public television outlets (including those affiliated with PBS) is being handled separately by a company called Forest Incentives. That is their specialty--fulfillment of orders from public television stations. People who "buy" the DVD and CD from pledge shows at prices much higher than retail are usually fully aware that they are contributing to the operation of the nonprofit outlet.
