Message from the President 11.19.15

Nov 24, 2015

Dear Friends,

These are exciting times at Texas Public Radio. We have recently welcomed three new people to our newsroom staff. You have likely already heard Virginia Alvino on air. Virginia joined us as Host & Producer of Fronteras and is doing a great job at that, as well as some general assignment reporting. If you haven’t already heard Louisa Jonas’s reporting, you soon will. Louisa is a seasoned reporter and producer and has also served as an instructor for college classes on the craft of public radio production. You will hear Tricia Schwennesen on air from time-to-time, but her influence will be most felt on our website in her role as Digital Producer & Editor. We are very pleased with these recent additions.


UPDATE, 12.9.15: This event is being postponed due to a weather forecast that calls for a 100% chance of rain on Saturday night. We will reschedule the event for spring, 2016. Stay tuned for details!

Calling all stargazers, philosophers, and astronomers, join us as we tour the night sky at TPR Presents: Stargazing with TPR at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center.

Imagine a thought-controlled leg or arm that moves and responds through brain signals sent to the prosthetic, behaving as a regular leg or arm. While prosthetic limbs controlled by thought are still in the trial phase and still years away from hitting the market, prosthetics have made remarkable improvements within the last decade. With Brooke Army Medical Center and the Center for the Intrepid, San Antonio is at the forefront of military medicine.

Dudley Harris Pottery Sale To Benefit Texas Public Radio

Nov 18, 2015

Dr. Dudley Harris is presenting his pottery work at his annual studio open house at 219 Palo Grande from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on December 5 and 12, 2015.

Proceeds from the sales events will benefit TPR. Dudley's ceramic specialty is making bowls for the kitchen and table. These hand-crafted pieces are beautiful and affordable, and would make an ideal holiday gift.


When Thanksgiving emergencies arise, keep calm and tune into KSTX 89.1 FM or KTXI 90.1 FM. 

"Turkey Confidential" is the annual live call-in show from "The Splendid Table" with Lynne Rossetto Kasper and is designed to bail you out of any last-minute kitchen emergencies and provide a backdrop as you and your family prepare for the big day.
