I was highly anticipating your show on the USS Indianapolis. Unfortunately, it wasn't about the Indianapolis!! It was about space exploration. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed. Is there any chance that this will be on your station?

CET 48 did air USS INDIANAPOLIS LIVE- FROM THE DEEP, but It was a last minute addition to the schedule by PBS, so did not appear in the Members Guide nor on some on-screen cable guides.
CET members can access it via Passport, so if you’re a member, or just want information on the service, call 844-285-9783.
If you’re interested in membership in order to receive Passport, contact Dan Virzi at 513-345-6582.
In the meantime, USS INDIANAPOLIS LIVE will air again 12/19 @ 10pm on ThinkTV 14.
I am a huge fan of Bob Ross (JOY OF PAINTING) and was wanting to know if there are any episodes that he did in which he showed how to create a scene in which it was raining. I noticed that at the end of the program it was copyrighted 2017 Bob Ross productions, but wasn't sure if I should contact them or go through CET and ThinkTV.org. Thank you for your help.

I’d suggest accessing JOY OF PAINTING information via the web. There is the Bob Ross website (www.bobross.com), a Bob Ross YouTube channel, a Facebook page, and plenty more information.
His Wikki entry had an interesting statistic that he painted more than 30,000 paintings in his lifetime… But no paintings involving rain?
I’m thinking this like my wife Pat and her baking. She can create all sorts of exceptional baked goods. And I can say without fear of trepidation, and can get corroboration from station staffers, that her carrot cake is unsurpassed.
But by her admission, she can’t bake a cookie to save herself.
Maybe Bob just couldn’t paint rain. Maybe rain for him was like oatmeal cookies for Pat: just not in the cards for him.
Or maybe Bob Ross just didn’t care for the gloomy vibe it created.
Rain, I mean. Not oatmeal cookies.
