PRX Gets Tan
Hi friend of PRX,
It’s March. So naturally we are already breaking out the sun tan lotion and shorts.
Winter, what a concept.
It was colder in Austin most of last week than parts of the Northeast. PRX is more than celebrating this turn of events with featured pieces on spring and Earth Day below. A heads up that we have some programming flowers ready to bloom shortly: a special star-studded performance from LA Theatre Works on the gay marriage issue Prop 8; a free special from Sound Opinions on 1967 — a pivotal year in rock. And much more!
Put on those headphones. Crank the air conditioning. Summer listening is here!
