  1. When are the Palm Beach, Lake Tahoe, Carmel-“Concourse” & Las Vegas Auctions being broadcast & on which channels are they aired?
    Thank You,
    Mike Irish

  2. Thanks Barrett- Jackson for switching to Velocity. After years of following your show I was unable to watch the most important sale of the century ( Ron Pratte’s Collection ) Shame on you, no one can get this Channel ( Discovery Velocity ) in Canada.
