(Suggested Anchor Intro):
America's national "Independence Day"-celebration--"A Capitol Fourth"--returns for its 38th-annual broadcast, on P-B-S--live from the West Lawn of the U-S Capitol.  This year's concert will again be hosted by John Stamos...

(STAMOS):
"
I HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME, LAST YEAR.  BUT, THIS YEAR, I GET TO BRING MY SON.  AND, THAT IS GONNA BE SOMETHING ELSE:  IT'S HIS FIRST TRIP, AND HE'S GONNA SEE HIS OLD MAN--RIGHT THERE, IN D-C--'[A] CAPITOL FOURTH', SOME FIREWORKS.  BUT, THE BEST PART OF BEING AT THE 'CAPITOL FOURTH' LAST YEAR WAS JUST SEEING SO MANY PEOPLE--SO HAPPY AND SO TOGETHER.  I LOVE THE IDEA OF SEEING ALL OF US TOGETHER--SINGING AND DANCING AND CELEBRATING BEING AMERICANS."

(Suggested Anchor Tag):
This year, along with performing, the "Beach Boys" will be honored with "A Capitol Fourth's" fifth-ever "National Artistic-Achievement Award".  And, during the concert, Renée Fleming will present a tribute to America's troops--and their families.  The lineup also includes: Jimmy Buffett, with the Broadway-cast of "Escape to Margaritaville"; "Pentatonix"; Andy Grammer; the "Temptations"; Luke Combs; Chita Rivera; Lauren Alaina; CeCe Winans; Joshua Bell; and Kyla Jade--with Jack Everly, conducting the "National Symphony Orchestra".  "A Capitol Fourth" will air live, on P-B-S, Wednesday, July 4th, at eight p-m, Eastern; check local listings, for the time in your area.  To learn more, visit "p-b-s"-dot-org-slash-"capitol-fourth".
