Make a date with KPAC and KTXI for the next eight Sunday afternoons for The Art of American Popular Song, the reprise of a series produced over a decade ago for KPAC by co-writers and hosts Kathy Couser and James Baker. Each week the program will focus on one of the most important of the songwriters who produced, over a span of 50 years, what is affectionately known as The Great American Songbook.

From innovative art pop-ups to a children's stage performance to big time Jazz -- the weekend's packed with fun.  First off, this weekend at the McNay Art Museum, it's the Meet The Future Pop-Up.

The McNay Art Museum is running a series of weekday art education events and I got a preview of one. It's called ArtFULL Wednesdays, and they happen each Wednesday at noon.

"It gives people their weekly cultural dose," says Rosemary Hickman, the McNay's Semmes Foundation Museum Educator.

 

The question I had for Ms. Hickman is if someone comes on Wednesday at noon, what can they expect?
