Very cool! Thx for sharing, I hadn't heard this.

FYI it's one of PBS's most highly rated shows and tickets for the Raleigh event were so sought after that there were over 30,000 requests for 3600 pairs of tickets drawn in a lottery. Raleigh set a record for ticket requests. The show is so big that it can only be held in some of the largest civic center venues in the nation. It's been on for more than a decade and even longer in the UK where it originated.
awesome...
