Pancake Mountain To Feature Bass With Dave Schools Segment

Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools will appear in a recurring segment dubbed "Bass With Dave Schools" on the soon-to-launched season of PBS children's show Pancake Mountain.

Before it went into retirement two years ago, Pancake Mountain featured a slew of musical guests including Widespread Panic, The White Stripes, Jason Mraz, My Morning Jacket, The Flaming Lips, Robert Randolph and Eddie Vedder. According to WTOP, PBS Digital Studios will premiere a new episode of the music-heavy program this Monday. "The initial run will be 10 weeks, with a new episode launching each Monday and a 'classic' video launching each Friday," Jennifer Rankin Byrne, senior director of media relations for PBS, told WTOP. "There will be the same skits, dance parties and celebrity appearances 'Pancake Mountain' is known for, as well as some new recurring segments, including cooking with David Yow of The Jesus Lizard and a musical segment we're calling 'Bass with Dave Schools,'" said Byrne.

Pancake Mountain is the brainchild of Scott Stuckey, who forged a relationship with Widespread Panic and many others as the head of an Athens, GA studio in the early '90s.

UPDATE 6/16 1:30 p.m. PT: The first segment of "Bass With Dave" is here and we love Schools' take on the bass line for Lou Reed's "Walk On The Wild Side." Check it out:
