Texas Public Radio celebrates a milestone this month. On November 7, 1982, KPAC signed on for the first time, broadcasting classical music 24 hours a day to San Antonio. Thanks to the vision and determination of Wilford Stapp, J.C. Stromberger, B.J. McClain and countless other heroes of classical music, the groundwork was laid for Texas Public Radio as it exists today, broadcasting NPR News and classical music programming to San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country.
SACU, Texas Public Radio (TPR) and community partners sponsored a volunteer community project to recreate the savanna that once covered much of Phil Hardberger Park, planting native grass sprigs in a grassland restoration. This was an official event of National Public Lands Day, postponed due to heavy rains on Sept.
The Lockwood Park Lighter! Quicker! Cheaper! project repurposes unused sand volleyball courts to create terraced seating with flat ledge rock and grass seating areas. The terraces are wide enough to spread a blanket or to set up temporary seating for community events. Texas Public Radio presents the official unveiling of this winning design in the Lighter! Quicker! Cheaper! initiative in partnership with the City of San Antonio, the Project for Public Spaces and the AIA San Antonio.
