Saturday Specials for May 5

texas-music

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Tune in to KRTS today for several Saturday specials.

Today KRTS begins the 3-month airing of the new season of Radiolab at 3 PM. On this weeks show, “Talking to Machines.” What can machines tell us about being human? This hour of Radiolab, hosts Jad and Robert meet humans and robots who are trying to connect, and blur the line.

Also, the first Saturday of every month at 6 PM, KRTS features The Spark. Grammy-nominated singer songwriter Tift Merrit hosts the program, and her guest on Saturday is composer Richard Einhorn. Richard Einhorn's unique music has been described as "hauntingly beautiful," "sensational," and "overwhelming in its emotional power." He has become one of a small handful of living composers who not only reaches a large worldwide audience but whose music receives widespread critical praise for its integrity, emotional depth, and craft. Visit The Spark’s website here.

And then tune in for Joe Nick Patoski‘s Cinco de Mayo edition of the Texas Music Hour of Power from 7-9 PM. The Texas historian and music writer hosts a mix of Texas tunes that’ll make the perfect soundtrack for your Saturday night.
