PRX: Go to the Light

Hi friend of PRX,

“Never leave well enough alone”
-industrial and graphic designer Raymond Loewy

We spent the last week with public radio programmers, struggling to attract and hold public radio listeners. Sometimes the magic is right in front of us. PRX makes it easy for the innovators, the creators, the artists and the boundary-pushers to delight a new audience.

Tomorrow, the Third Coast Festival reveals its 2012 winners. We cannot wait to hear from those who will not leave well enough alone!


Great Radio


This Saturday is American Graduate Day, part of the CPB initiative, and it’s a good time to air Left Behind, Dropping Out.

The special is hosted by Andrea Seabrook and is free to every station.

Snap Judgment has a fun piece about teachers and school as part of our free playlist for American Graduate.

Join us for a webinar Sept. 19 at 3 EST to learn about this content and how to use it.

Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin from WNYC is on PRX! Five episodes are coming; start with Alec’s conversations with Billy Joel, Kristen Wiig, and Dick Cavett.
