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.
Texas Public Radio is presenting a free screening of "Bag It!" on Tuesday, March 5 at the LOL Comedy Club, followed by a panel discussion.
A natural fit for our Views and Brews series: Microbreweries and beer distribution laws.
Please join TPR at 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 28, at Hermann Sons for the latest discussion in the Views and Brews series. The event will feature a panel discussion about possible legislative changes to distribution laws and the impact to wholesalers, distributors and breweries of all sizes.
The panel discussion will be featured on "Texas Matters" Friday, March 1 at 12:30 p.m. with rebroadcasts Saturday, March 2 at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday, March 3 at 9:30 p.m.
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.
Texas Public Radio joined community partners in a National Public Lands Day event at Olmos Basin Park. Postponed from September due to rain, the event included creek and litter clean-up and mulching around newly-planted trees. Local Girl Scouts and the Friends of Olmos Basin Park made presentations to volunteers about the park's history and the importance of bats to the environment.
Texas Public Radio to Launch News and Talk Station at 89.9 FM
Texas Public Radio (TPR) is excited to announce it will soon be able to provide public radio service to the Texas Big Country. Broadcasting from Snyder, the new non-profit FM station will reach Sweetwater, Colorado City, Big Spring, and surrounding areas which are presently out of range of other public radio providers. This is the first major expansion for Texas Public Radio’s services since the debut of KTXI 90.1 FM in the Texas Hill Country in 1998.
