TPR Events & Initiatives

 

 

Texas Public Radio celebrates the season with holiday programming to get you into the spirit, or simply offer a moment of reflection. Join us on KPAC 88.3 FM, KSTX 89.1 FM, and all of TPR's TexNet stations for a cornucopia of programs, including music, spoken word, and in at least one instance... the inexplicable.

Think Science: Sleep

Nov 17, 2017

If you don’t get enough of it, you’ll develop health problems. If you do it too much, people think there’s something wrong with you.

Sleep is something our body needs just the right amount of. But why? And to what purpose?

KPAC Celebrates 35 Years

Nov 3, 2017

On November 7, 1982, classical station KPAC began broadcasting at 90.9 FM. The first piece played on the air was Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Brandenburg Concerto No. 3.” Later in the 1980s, the merger of the Classical Broadcasting Society and San Antonio Community Radio led to KSTX 89.1 FM, and the creation of Texas Public Radio. Five more stations followed, bringing NPR programming and music to listeners all over central Texas. Today, more than 80,000 people tune in to KPAC 88.3 each week to enjoy the greatest music of all time.

Don Gonyea, NPR’s National Political Correspondent, joined TPR and our guests on Friday, September 22, at TPR's annual Pinnacle Dinner. Gonyea was joined by TPR’s VP of News, Michele DuBach, for a conversation about how he covers politics from a “people” angle, including how to acquaint yourself to a new place, approach strangers, find ways to connect with them and gain their trust so they’re willing to open up on the record. TPR members also appreciated Gonyea’s insights on covering various presidencies and the challenges of covering the unique administration of Donald Trump.

On NPR's new weekly one-hour program "It's Been a Minute," host Sam Sanders talks with journalists, newsmakers, and listeners about news, popular culture, and the Internet. Think of it as an irreverent, casual space for listeners who don't know how to process the pace of current events, but can't think about anything else.
