Sunday on KRTS: Hear Some of the Best Radio from 2010
Marfa Public Radio has a few post-Christmas presents for our listeners today, courtesy of The Third Coast International Audio Festival, and Radiolab from WNYC.
From 10am to 1pm, hear the best radio pieces from this year's Third Coast International Audio Festival. The festival brings the best new documentaries produced worldwide to the national airwaves in a special two-hour program, Best of the Best: The 2010 Third Coast Festival Broadcast. The featured documentaries, all winners of the 10th annual TC / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition, demonstrate just how powerful radio can be. Innovative and insightful, the stories will engage, provoke, entertain, and transport listeners, proving that all you need to discover new worlds is...a little box and an antenna.
Then later tonight, from 5pm to 10pm, KRTS brings you the Radiolab Season 8 Marathon. It's been an exciting year at Radiolab: a woman fought a bull to save a stranger's life, a toxic lake spawned new life, and we met a chimp who was raised to be human. Hear all those stories an more as KRTS plays all five Radiolabs from 2010, back to back!
