WQED to rebroadcast Borge special
Thursday, December 28, 2000
In light of last week's death of Victor Borge, WQED will rebroadcast the hourlong special "The Legendary Victor Borge" at 8 p.m. Saturday. At roughly the midpoint, the station will insert a short clip from his Pittsburgh appearance during the Elsie Awards in February.
The musical humorist, pianist and conductor was 91 when he died Dec. 23 at his Connecticut home. He appeared in Pittsburgh twice in the past year, the first time to receive an Elsie Award at Carnegie Music Hall and the second to perform in July at Heinz Hall.
