|New Programming Brightens the 2013
Saturdays, 10 a.m., HPR-2: Radio
Lab, the award-winning and witty science show moves into this time
slot. You’ll be entranced, astonished, exasperated or otherwise stunned by hosts
Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich as they weave stories and science into sound and
music-rich documentary action. More information at http://www.radiolab.org/.
Saturdays, 2:00 p.m. The Moth makes
its debut on HPR-2 on Jan. 5th. Winner of the 2010 Peabody Award, this hit show
features storytelling by folks like you and me, personal accounts that often
feature the stories behind the stories. More information at www.themoth.org.
Saturdays, 5:00 p.m., HPR-1: PRI’s Peabody Award-winning
Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen from WNYC is a smart and
surprising guide to what's happening in pop culture and the arts. Each week,
Kurt Andersen introduces you to the people who are creating and shaping our
culture. Let Studio 360 steer you to the must-see
movie this weekend, the next book for your nightstand, or the song that will
change your life. More information at http://www.studio360.org/.
Sundays, Noon, HPR-2. The TED Radio
Hour. “Talks” from the legendary TED (Technology, Entertainment,
Design) stage are coming to radio for the first time, and in a new format that
will intrigue curious listeners and stir the imagination. And to prove how
important NPR takes this show, Guy Raz is leaving his post at
Weekend Edition Saturday to take over as
TED host. For more information, click on npr.org/programs/ted-radio-hour/.
note to Car Talk fans: as of last fall,
Car Talk ceased production of new programs. The two
slots reserved for that show on Saturday -- 10 a.m. on HPR-2 and 5 p.m. on HPR-1
-- have now been filled by superb new programming we hope you find well worth
