Live Call-in Talk Show to Air Monday Through Thursday at 3 p.m.
Beginning April 1, KSTX 89.1 FM, San Antonio’s NPR affiliate, will for the first time launch a live, listener call-in talk show. "The Source," Texas Public Radio’s award-winning program that captures the pulse of San Antonio, has been a part of the weekly KSTX lineup since January 2010.
Congratulations to Z Wright, the artist who submitted the winning design.
Z Wright has studied art, illustration and painting and has been involved with several high-profile San Antonio projects over the years, including Fiesta floats for the San Antonio Public Library and the San Antonio Zoological Society, designing and illustrating the trains for Fiesta gowns, painting murals in the old Hertzberg Circus Museum and creating bird illustrations for the San Antonio Zoo. He also spent many years working the theater as a prop artisan and scenic artist.
Texas Public Radio (TPR) is hosting a free community screening of the award-winning documentary film "Bag It!" on Tuesday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m. The screening will take place at the LOL Comedy Club, located in the Park North Entertainment Complex at Loop 410 and Blanco Road.
Sherry and Steve have been volunteering for TPR since 1997. In addition to volunteering, Sherry and Steve are avid readers and runners. Sherry enjoys making wreaths, taking Oasis classes, seeing films, doing crossword puzzles (especially acrostics), and taking quizzes on Sploofus. Steve enjoys Sudoku, motorcycling and bicycling.
We asked Sherry and Steve to answer a few questions about themselves and their volunteering experiences with TPR. Sherry responded to our questions.
Is your life too plastic? Have you ever considered the impact of plastics on your health and your environment? The documentary film "Bag It!" follows one man's journey to learn about his own use of plastics and how they affect the world.

For the past six years, Texas Public Radio has approached a single local artist to craft the artist-designed t-shirt we offer as a premium to new and renewing members.
The artist’s work is printed on 1000 TPR member shirts and is promoted online through social media and throughout our on-air fundraising campaigns. TPR members who choose it as a premium item proudly wear the shirt around town. Past TPR t-shirt artists have included Chuck Ramirez, Katie Pell, Jennifer Khoshbin, Robert Rehm, Gary Sweeny and Ansen Seale.
