Public Radio 89.5 HD1 – Nearly a quarter of Arabs under 30 are jobless. Long gone are the days of a guaranteed government gig, and the private sector is far from filling the gap. Today, Arab youth are searching for work and waiting for weddings. Some just want to leave the region - and its long unemployment lines - altogether. At best, unemployment and flagging Arab economies lead to a generation of bored and frustrated youth. At worst, economic conditions create a breeding ground for extremism and instability.
Classical 88.7 KWTU HD1 – The BBC Proms is the world's largest and best-known classical music festival, and invitations to perform at it are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This year, for the first time, we'll be broadcasting the Last Night in glorious DTS Neural Surround Sound, helping you feel like you're actually in the Royal Albert Hall for this not to be missed concert.
Listen Saturday afternoon at 1:00 on Classical 88.7 HD1.
Audiences around the world will join the Royal Albert Hall crowd in singing along during the 2010 climax of this fantastic festival.
Public Radio 89.5 HD1 – In 2009, you partnered with us to begin our local news initiative. In August 2009, we started Tulsa based newscasts during KWGS' popular "Morning Edition". The newscasts joined a daily, in depth, news segment at 7:35AM that focused on local and state issues.
Public Radio 89.5 HD1 – For nearly two decades, KAKC AM 970, was Tulsa's top-rated radio station. From the mid 50s to the mid 70s, KAKC ruled the teen and young adult audience, dominating the local radio scene like no other station has before or since.
It was a time of cruising Tulsa's restless ribbon and Pennington's Restaurant; dance crazes and hula hoops; Seeing the USA in your Chevrolet; the 60's counterculture and Vietnam war protests. Through it all, Rock and Roll was our music and KAKC was the soundtrack of our youth!
