Congratulations to Thuy Pham, who submitted the winning design for this year's TPR Artist T-Shirt.
Pham says she went for a "clean and simple" design in creating her transistor radio-styled shirt, which incorporates the tagline "Radio that goes in one ear and stays there." The selection committee admired the bold design, which will be printed on several hundred T-shirts for members of Texas Public Radio during the spring pledge drive.
Texas Public Radio was tickled to learn recently that the first ever Rusty Hubcap Award has been bestowed upon the organization by the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program. Donald Braun, a Floresville native and current resident of San Antonio, donated his 1948 Buick Roadmaster to the program, identifying TPR as the recipient of the gift.
Join TPR in the Texas Hill Country for a special TPR Presents event, "A Wine Pairing," featuring a screening of the Oscar-winning movie “Sideways” and a special wine tasting from our friends at Kerrville Hills Winery. The event takes place on Saturday, March 15 at the Fredericksburg Theater Company. The tasting and social hour begins at 4:00, and will be accompanied by light appetizers.
As part of the city-wide Dvorak Festival, Texas Public Radio invites members to TPR Presents: Dvorak at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21, at Our Lady of the Lake University's Thiry Auditorium, 411 SW 24th St. There will be a dessert reception following the performance.
For several years, Texas Public Radio approached a single local artist to craft the artist-designed t-shirt we offer as a premium to new and renewing members. Last year, we opened up the process to you, and invited the public to submit their ideas for the 2013 T-shirt design. Z Wright's winning entry featured a Texas mockingbird atop a nifty "FM" sign. It was such a successful (and fun) endeavor, we're going to repeat the contest again this spring!
This time, we're adding a theme. For your shirt design, please consider the slogan "Radio that goes in one ear and stays there."
