Time for a DVR 1: Lepage Ring on KQED

Email from the Wagner Society reminds me that the Lepage Ring will be on TV this week - sort of - depending on what your cable plan is. Here's the helpful email about the situation in the Bay Area:

A reminder that the PBS showings of the Met Ring will be beginning Tuesday. For us in the Bay Area, they will be aired three times on KQED and KQED+. They have very different schedules, so pay attention - there will a quiz at the end.  :-) 
On KQED+  (which is Channel 10 here in the East Bay):
"Wagner's Dream" (the making of the Met Ring) and the four operas are on consecutive evenings  Sept 10 - 14.
"Wagner's Dream" starts at 8pm, and the operas all start at 7pm. 
On the basic KQED Channet 9, it's a different story:
There is no "Wagner's Dream", and the four operas are on 4 consecutive Sunday mid-days. They run Sept 16 - Oct 7.
Rheingold starts at noon and the rest at 11:00am. 
Also, to complicate things even more, KQED+ Channel 10 will repeat the daily eveningtime performances early the next morning. So Sept 11 at 2:00 am for "Wagner's Dream" and the next 4 late nights at 1:00 am for the 4 operas.

If you're not in the Bay Area, check your local PBS station.
