Over the years I made numerous appearances and got to know Brian Lamb and his outstanding staff. C-SPAN has made a unique contribution to the political process in the United States and helped educate Americans about how our government works.
There was no C-SPAN Bus in those early days. C-SPAN’s programing was limited and consisted mostly of following the House and Senate floor debates. Now there is C-SPAN, C-SPAN2, C-SPAN radio, and C-SPAN3, which broadens coverage to a wider variety of educational programing related to American history. There are still many places where it is not easy to find C-SPAN3 and it is a shame that more cable carriers do not include this important educational channel in their basic packages.
