ABOUT THE FILM

Thank you to everyone who made a donation to the 40th Anniversary Equipment Fund!

We have raised more than $18,000 so far! If you have not made a donation, please consider doing so by using our online donation form and checking off that you would like your donation to go to the 40th Anniversary Equipment Fund.

Or, you can make a donation by calling 501-569-8485 or 1-800-952-2528.

According to the American Veterinary Association, Arkansas ranks number one in the nation for dog ownership, with 47.9% of households owning a dog.

So it’s no surprise that when we issued a pet challenge during our recent one-day Saturday fund drive, listeners responded!

Donate to the Equipment Fund between now and midnight.

In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we are having a special one day on-air fund drive this Saturday to raise funds for much-needed equipment, like new audio control boards.

(The ones we have are so outdated it's hard to find and order new parts when something fails.)

Please consider making your pledge today, so we can get an early start on reaching our goal!

It's our 40th Anniversary Celebration! And you are invited!!

This year is our 40th Anniversary of broadcasting in central Arkansas, and we will have several special events throughout the year to celebrate!

Feb. 23: An Open House & Fundraiser 

As a kick-off for our year-long celebration we will have a one-day fund drive on Saturday, February 23.

Public radio listeners love Tales from the South and with good reason-- they're true stories from the very Southerners who lived them.

This Thursday (Jan. 31), Civil Rights figure and author Simeon Wright will be the featured storyteller for a very special Tales from the South "Tin Roof Project."

UALR Public Radio, The Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN), and William F. Laman Library invite the public to a free advance screening of “The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights” as part of Community Cinema Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 6:30 p.m.
