A Message from Our President

Feb 12, 2016

Dear Friends,

Today’s letter is, in part, an early Valentine for a very special group of people. While we sincerely appreciate every one of our listeners and supporters, we have a special place in our hearts for these folks – the more than 300 folks who volunteer their time to TPR.


After 50 years of serving the Alamo City, San Antonio College’s planetarium was renovated and reopened in 2014 as the Scobee Education Center, named after Dick Scobee who died in NASA’s Challenger accident.

A group of researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio have developed a way to deliver nanoparticle radiation directly to the brain tumor and keep it there. The method doses the tumor itself with much higher levels of radiation, twenty to thirty times the current dose of radiation therapy to patients, but spares a much greater area of brain tissue.

Dear Friends,

Hear The Sound Of Hollywood

Jan 17, 2016

A great film soundtrack can stand alone as a beautiful piece of music, but when coupled with the movie memories it brings back, the experience of hearing them in concert can be quite a moving experience. On Saturday, February 6, Boerne Performing Arts presents “A Night at the Oscars” with The Hollywood Concert Orchestra, in concert at Boerne Champion Auditorium.

Join Texas Public Radio for a night of great movie music as the ensemble plays melodies from “Superman” to “E.T.,” from James Bond to “Schindler’s List.”
