A New Saturday Afternoon Lineup Inspired By You

Coming January 2021 on Public Radio 90:
A New Saturday Afternoon Lineup Inspired By You!

We depend on your feedback about the programs you value as well as suggestions for future 
improvements and changes. In fact, your feedback inspired our new Saturday afternoon program line-up, which rolls out this month.

Saturdays at 1pm: The Children’s Hour

Created for and with kids, The Children’s Hour explores incredibly diverse themes using interviews, storytelling, poetry, music, and discussion. It feature young performers and thinkers, as well as adult expert guests in all fields, and weaves the show themes together with great music.

The Children’s Hour is for listeners of all ages. Produced by KUNMin Albuquerque, New Mexico, each episode seeks to entertain, while recognizing that almost no topic is too “sophisticated” for children, and that through exposure to science, technology, community service, civic engagement and cultural collaboration, we can successfully address both educational gaps and trends toward low public participation by young people.

Saturdays 2-4pm: American Routes

Producer/Host Nick Spitzer

Now in its 20th year on the air, American Routes, which is produced in New Orleans, brings you a broad range of American music — blues and jazz, gospel and soul, old-time country and rockabilly, Cajun and zydeco, Tejano and Latin, roots rock and pop, avant-garde and classical.

Host Nick Spitzer explores the shared musical and cultural threads in these American styles and genres of music, and how they are distinguished. The songs and stories on American Routes describe the community origins of our music, musicians and cultures (the “roots”) and the many directions they take over time.
Join us as we ride legendary trains, or visit street parades, instrument-makers, roadside attractions and juke joints, and meet tap dancers, fishermen, fortunetellers and more.

Saturdays at 4pm: The Shuffle with Kurt Hauswirth
