Jan 10, 2020


Our New Year's resolution is to give you more opportunities to get the news and information you need during this election year. We're updating our schedule to reflect an even greater commitment to bringing you the best in public radio programming at times that work for your schedule. 

 

Our New Year's resolution is to give you more opportunities to get the news and information you need during this election year. We're updating our schedule to reflect an even greater commitment to bringing you the best in public radio programming at times that work for your schedule. 

Starting Monday, January 20th, we'll be adding an afternoon broadcast of Fresh Air at 1:00 p.m. Monday - Thursday. An award-winning show and one of public radio's most iconic programs, Fresh Air is a weekday "talk show" that hardly fits the mold.

Then at 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, tune in for world news from the BBC Newshour. Newshour is the award-winning flagship program of the BBC World Service, the world's largest newsgathering operation. Clear, rigorous, well-paced, and live every afternoon, Newshour brings BBC's unmatched reporting from all around the globe right to you.

On Fridays, you will be able to hear Science Friday live from noon to 2:00 p.m. Covering everything from the outer reaches of space to the tiniest microbes in our bodies, Science Friday is the trusted source for news and entertaining stories about science.

Classical Music from Aspen with Chris Mohr will return this summer during the Aspen Music Festival, Monday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

At 7:00 p.m. weeknights, we’re bringing back The World! The World is a US radio news magazine with an emphasis on international news and global journalism. The World's unique editorial perspective brings energy and passion to each day's broadcast. The goal: to take us beyond borders and boundaries, and fire up our curiosity about a fascinating, messy, contentious and beautiful planet. The evening broadcast of Fresh Air can now be heard at 8:00 p.m.

At 9:00 p.m., we are adding an evening broadcast of 1A. The 1A staff update and curate a shorter, one-hour version of the daily program. It’s so those who aren’t able to listen to the morning episode can catch up on on the best of those compelling daily conversations. At 10:00 p.m., we’ll have opportunities to catch weekend storytelling shows including Radiolab, Snap Judgment, and This American Life.

We have also brought back The Moth and Reveal to Aspen Public Radio! The Moth will air Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. while Reveal will air Sundays at 1:00 p.m. Hidden Brain will move to the more convenient time of 10:00 a.m. Sundays. It's Been a Minute remains at 1:00 p.m. Saturdays, and Snap Judgment will remain at 4:00 p.m Saturdays. 

See the new schedule here. Note that if you are reading this on Sunday the 19th, this calendar starts with Monday, so you will need to advance the schedule using the arrow at the top to see the new schedule.

These changes are part of our ongoing effort to diversify the perspectives--from around the valley to around the world--that you can hear from Aspen Public Radio.

Thank you for listening and for supporting public radio and independent journalism on Aspen Public Radio.

Editor's Note: This post was updated on Sunday, January 19th to share our new evening additions as well.
