In A Nutshell TV Show's producers, Allen and Delores Weissman, need your help to continue to promote musicians.
Delores and Allen Weissman from Antioch, IL are the creators and Comcast producers of the In A Nutshell TV Show on UToo stations (paid programming Friday nights late, late 2-2:30 AM CST) on Weigel Broadcasting.

After having produced excellent quality TV shows for four years on Comcast Public Access locally and U-Verse public access nationally, we are excited to be able to showcase our musicians by way of In a Nutshell TV Show on The U-Too television stations that reaches 3.5 million homes in northern Illinois and northwest Indiana, but this does involve a Lot of expenses. There are considerable fees associated with the broadcast including a substantial insurance expense annually and weekly broadcast expenses. The creation/production of a first quality TV show is both expensive and time-consuming. Producer Delores does all of the videography, editing, directing and closed captioning. Producer Allen does the research and acquisition of talent as well as he is the Host of the show. Advertisers will be sought to make the show self-sustaining on an ongoing basis.
Legendary Blues Hall of Famer Paul Filipowicz was live on The In A Nutshell Show last year. Paul will be coming back to In A Nutshell TV Show soon.
Here is a short video clip including segments from 4 In a Nutshell TV Shows that have been on public access TV on Comcast locally on channel 17 in Lake and McHenry counties, IL and ATT U-Verse nationally. Each of these performers will likely also be included on the New In A Nutshell TV Show soon on UToo TV stations.
Allen and Delores would love to continue to support and promote musicians and vocalists. Recently it has been suggested by friends and loved ones to ask audience members, friends, neighbors and music lovers to help out.
