KRPS features holiday programming

As radio stations throughout the area turn the switch to Christmas music this season, the Public Radio station at Pittsburg State University will celebrate the holidays with a variety of programming.

KRPS, 89.9 FM, will offer more than 92 hours of holiday music and shows beginning with an all-day event this Saturday, Dec. 1. The station will air “Music, Memories & More: a KRPS Old-Fashioned Radio Special” from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, with special programming from big names like Garrison Keillor and Click and Clack.

Also on Saturday, the station will host a holiday open house for community members and supporters. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., visitors are welcome to stop by the station located in Shirk Hall for tours and refreshments.

The rest of the season (through New Year’s Day) is full of a wide range of special holiday music. Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio,” “A Baroque Christmas,” “Peter Ostroushko’s Heartland Holiday 2007, “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” “Christmas with the Philadelphia Singers 2007,” “The Nutcracker,” and “A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols,” are all part of the schedule throughout the month. And for listeners celebrating Chanukah, programming is scheduled for Dec. 4-12.

For more information about these and other KPRS programs, contact KRPS General Manager Missi Kelly at 620-235-4288 or visit their Web site at http://www.krps.org/.
