Navigating the Unknown: Chris Brecht Talks ATX6 Documentary

Lift Me Up premieres Friday on KLRU

BY KEVIN CURTIN

When I think of PBS, I think of music and travel shows. Actually, Sesame Street as well, but that’s way beside the point. It’s fitting that PBS’s local channel, KLRU, will on Friday air Lift Me Up, an hourlong doc about Project ATX6, which hinges on the collective experiences of music and travel.

Both of the aforementioned activities are ones in which you must prepare yourself for things to not go as planned and allow the experience to be more meaningful because of it.
