    Miss your participation on Red, White and Blue. When will you return?

    • David Jones

      Thank you, still no word from PBS.

  • Linda Driskill

    We miss David Jones on “Red, White, and Blue.” Is he well? If not, we send our best wishes.

    • David Jones

      I am well though I had a setback in the first week of January that caused me to be under evaluation first through hospitalization and then a doctor for six to eight weeks at which time the PBS people obviously could not use me on the program and began experimenting with alternatives.
      I have not heard whether or not they will bring me back. And that decision will be made in August. I am happy either way as I am no longer friends with my co-host.

    • David Jones

      Thank you, I’m not sure if I will be back.
