“Read me a story?”

We’ve all heard those plaintive words from a sleepy little one, clutching a well-worn book that’s been read so many times every word is familiar. Yet countless children throughout the Abilene area are unable to plead for a story at bedtime. In their world, books are a luxury, and scarce household funds go for necessities, not luxuries.

 

KACU brings listeners the new NPR show TED Radio Hour, beginning May 9,2012. Hosted by journalist Alison Stewart, TED Radio Hour presents big ideas about modern life from some of today’s most fascinating thinkers. The weekly, 10-episode season airs Wednesday afternoon at 1PM. on 89.7, KACU.

March is National Social Work Month and as a way to celebrate the may contributions social workers make in our community, this special series gives them a voice to talk about what they do each and every day. This is the second season of our award winning series. This season, host Dave Smith speaks with both area professionals and students studying at ACU and HSU in the field of social work. Our presentation tackles the subject of social work from the perspective of the individual as well as looking closer at the area of social work they are involved in.

KACU Listener Survey

A luncheon for the community marks a historic landmark in KACU history; a celebration of 25 years of public radio in Abilene and the Big Country of West Texas.  KACU serves one of the smallest markets in the U.S. and it has been said the area population is too small to support a public radio station.  But, with typical West Texas style, the community defied the odds and has maintained 89.7 KACU, AbilenePublicRadio, for 25 years.
