We need television like this today!
9 September 2006 | by friedmadSee all my reviews

For many years, the wonderful montage of each guest singing a line from "God Bless America" stayed with me. I managed to find a cassette of the show and got chills watching it again. They don't make shows like this anymore...I can't imagine a group of today's stars so large who I'd care to see at all. What would it take to get this special seen on TV again? In our post-9/11 world, it would be a nostalgic reminder of a generation that APPRECIATED where we came from, and what LIBERTY and FREEDOM are all about. To anyone reading this who may own the rights to this special, bring it back on video and you'll find a very receptive public.
