. public television needs your support. please call now at the number on your screen. >> hello, i'm george ray. and with me in the studio is tim janis, and we'll be talking with him in just a moment. and he's got some wonderful surprises for you, not dealing just with this concert, but with some things that are coming up. and i know that you're going to be interested in them. this is an extremely fitting program, i think, for public television. what a very poetic combination of specially composed music and then the drama, if you will, of the sea meeting the shore. it's something that only a tim janis could bring to us, and tim janis is one of the best friends that public television has ever had, and he's done so much for us, and we're so grateful that he's here tonight--and with a brand-new program. coastal america is just the latest project from tim. he's done so many other things for us. but right now, i'd like you to pay attention to the number at the bottom of your screen. that number is the number you're going to call to support the station that brings you programs like tim janis' coa

institution with a great bunch of people in it-- and i attended a concert there by george canyon, and it was great to see the animation, and i couldn't help but think, how would it have been 20 years or 30 years ago for those people or people like them? not so nice, i don't think. - well, some of those people that you saw 20 years ago were living in institutions--large institutions, state-run institutions. we have had tremendous changes since then that people, adults... these were adults that you saw; you missed the kids. the adults... the belief is that an adult with a severe disability--and a lot of the people that we serve are physically disabled and cognitively disabled, and some are cognitively-abled enough, as we say--a kind of variation--but it's a belief that they can live independently. they can be productive. we have a work program. we pay people for their employment, so, it has changed a lot in 20 years. i think there are perceptions of the abilities of people. instead of looking at what can't happen, we have tried to make a difference in how people perceive and what's poss

series. "and it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire." nope, not johnny cash. george canyon. george canyon, whom i met in birmingham, alabama, loves to start his shows occasionally by singing "ring of fire" as a tribute to johnny cash. now, we've often heard about great artists--in the country field especially, like cash, like others--that they're just like us. they're good, down home people singing about real life. and certainly in country music that's truer than in opera and in many other areas of music, but it's not always true that somebody who gets that much admiration and adulation can stay a truly simple person, but george canyon has, and you'll be convinced of that the minute he starts talking, which is right now. george canyon, i have heard of paying dues, but you have been a bill collector, a hospital-- - oh, yeah. i forgot about that. - a hospital orderly, a beef inspector. let's go through some of these. how did you collect bills? - i didn't. i was terrible at it, so i didn't do it. i didn't keep that job. - what was it, though? - it was, you know, collection agency work
