SDPB Radio Debuts New Music and News Programs
Last Updated by
Beginning Sunday, June 3, SDPB Radio will broadcast Conversations from the World Cafe, which features interviews and performances with new and significant music artists while exploring trends in contemporary music and culture. Hosted by Talia Schlanger.
Conversations from the World Cafe airs Saturdays at 7pm (6 MT).
SDPB Radio also debuts Reveal, the weekly, one-hour investigative reporting program from The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) and PRX.
Hosted by journalist, poet and playwright Al Letson, Reveal won a 2014 Peabody award for CIR’s original investigation into the Department of Veterans Affairs’ role in over-prescribing opioid drugs to returning Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans. The story put pressure on the VA and, as a result, the federalagency has reformed some of its most egregious prescription practices.
Reveal airs Sundays at 8pm (7 MT) on SDPB Radio
