The first Saturday of every month at noon, KRTS features The Spark. Grammy-nominated singer songwriter Tift Merrit hosts the program, and her guest on Saturday is musician Josh Ritter.

Throughout the month of May, KRTS featured episodes from the 9th Season of Radiolab, the popular show produced by WNYC. Hear the last episode of the season this Saturday at 6 PM.

On this week’s episode, entitled “Desperately Seeking Symmetry,” Radiolab hosts Jad and Robert set out in search of order and balance in the world around us, and ask how symmetry shapes our very existence--from the origins of the universe, to what we see when we look in the mirror. Along the way, we look for love in ancient Greece , head to modern-day Princeton to peer inside our brains, and turn up an unlikely headline from the Oval Office circa 1979.

Following Radiolab, tune in for a special 2-hour broadcast of Joe Nick Patoski's Texas Music Hour of Power from 7-9 PM.
