At Austin’s South By Southwest Film Festival last year, a documentary listed on the schedule caught my eye with its one-word title, “Yarn.”

At long last, what if a drug could help us live longer, healthier lives? UT Health Science Center Barshop Institute researchers are moving the science of healthy aging from the idea stage to clinical trials in an effort to prove that aging interventions, such as Rapamycin, actually work in humans.

At 17, Muffin Russell is already an accomplished singer. With multiple competitions behind her – including not just a few wins – she’s poised and confident in performance, with a talent few teenagers can imagine.

On Sunday, August 16th, The Saint Peter & Paul Young Artist Recital Series presented Russell in her first solo recital, and it is a preview of greatness to come. With Zachary Ridgway accompanying her, she performed a full recital of 13 pieces by Mozart, Handel, Gilbert and Sullivan and more.

The 2015 Texas Public Radio Salute to Supporters took place on Thursday, June 4th, at the Southwest School of Art. Representatives from nearly 60 of TPR's business supporters and non-profit community partners joined us for an evening reception featuring food by Mike Bomberg's Spice of Life catering.

TPR would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the  businesses, professionals and community partners who help us bring public radio to San Antonio, the Hill Country and the surrounding areas.

The Houston Press Club honored Texas Public Radio with six trophies for on-air and online work this month at their annual awards ceremony, held June 6 on the campus of Rice University in Houston. With competition from news organizations state-wide, the Lone Star Awards are given annually for excellence in print, television, radio and online journalism. First place awards went to David Martin Davies and Paul Flahive for Best Talk Show and Best Public Affairs programming for two episodes of “The Source,” KSTX 89.1 FM’s afternoon talk program.

Each year since 2006, Texas Public Radio has featured a t-shirt newly designed by a local artist as a thank-you gift. We are breaking with that tradition this year to honor two previous contributors: Chuck Ramirez and Robert Rehm.

In 2007, Chuck Ramirez’s pop-art infused coffee cup spilled its TPR goodness across the front of our ringer tee. To honor his contributions to the local art community, and his support of TPR, we are again presenting his design, this time on a natural-colored apron perfect for outdoor grilling (and coffee drinking).
