TPR Events & Initiatives

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).


Spend An Artful Day And Evening In Llano

Mar 17, 2015

Make a day of it and come to Llano, Texas on the last Saturday in March to visit with approximately twenty artists in their creative work spaces, as they create with clay, fabric, glass, iron, jewelry, leather, metal, paint, photography, wood and more. Most of these studios are not regularly open to the public so this is a great opportunity to speak one on one with artists in the comfort of their studios.

Who knew San Antonio had such talented student artists and musicians? With a wide variety of visual art, from hand-blown glass marbles to paintings to films, and the incredible artistry of the young musicians, the results of the Sounds Like KPAC Talent Competition exceeded even our expectations.

For San Antonio realtor Meghan Pelley, involvement with TPR is a family affair. Not only is she a valued volunteer and TPR business member, but her husband Damian Rodriguez is a business member and her mother and pets are all members, too.   

“We’re expecting our first child in early summer and he or she has probably already learned the voices of the on-air staff at TPR and NPR,” said Meghan.
