Richard Sherman Songs of a Lifetime
Seeing Richard Sherman live was a defining moment for me as a Disney fan. Seeing and hearing him play the songs that he wrote with his brother was almost like a soundtrack to my life. PBS SoCal will premier Richard Sherman Songs of a Lifetime, a showcase of Richard performing the songs he wrote with his brother. Hopefully, it will be popular enough to be shown in other markets across the country.
