Two of our Ridges’ residents – Miles Merritt and Gail Kempler -have produced a documentary entitled, “Just A Mortal Man – The Jerry Lawson Story” that will premiere on PBS nationwide this February. The film is a candid, intimate portrait of the inimitable Jerry Lawson, the original lead singer and arranger of the legendary a cappella group, The Persuasions. Rare performance clips and exclusive interviews make this film a compelling story of joy, heartbreak and renewal. It will air here in New Mexico on KENW on 2/16 at 7 PM – and again on KNME on 2/24 at 7 PM. Don’t forget to tune in!
