This weekend, KUAR is bringing two new programs from NPR to its airwaves with the TED Radio Hour and Latino USA.
Beginning Sunday, October 6, TED Radio Hour will air regularly at 1 p.m., after A Prairie Home Companion and before Snap Judgment. This change will remove the encore broadcast of Car Talk. While popular with listeners, Car Talk has been airing repackaged repeat shows for the past year following the retirement of the Magliozzi brothers. Car Talk will continue to broadcast on KUAR in its more popular time slot, Saturdays at 9 a.m.
TED Radio Hour mixes interviews and TED Talks audio from the thinkers and innovators who have come to characterize the thought-provoking lecture series. If you haven't heard TED Radio Hour yet, you can hear a segment from a recent episode below.
The newly expanded one-hour version of Latino USA will air Sunday at 6 p.m., after On the Media and before The People's Pharmacy. Travel with Rick Steves will move to 8 p.m., in place of Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz. McPartland died August 20.
The newly-expanded Latino USA gives listeners a weekly look into the Latino experience in North America as demographics are rapidly changing and influencing politics and culture. If you haven't had a chance to listen yet, we've posted last weeks show below.
