APM Reports

Starting this Saturday, KRCU will air three new education specials for fall 2020 from American Public Media's award-winning documentary team, APM Reports. Here's a rundown of each episode, and when you can hear them:

Covid On Campus

The Coronavirus pandemic represents the greatest challenge to American higher education in decades. Some small regional colleges that were already struggling won’t survive. Other schools, large and small, are rethinking how to offer an education while keeping people safe. This program explores how institutions are handling the crisis, and how students are trying to navigate a major disruption in their college years.

Airtime / Saturday, Aug. 29 from 3-4 PM

As a result of the discontinuation of the public radio variety show Live From Here, KRCU Public Radio has added two new programs to our weekend lineup. 

NPR’s Mountain Stage will air from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday evenings, replacing the Saturday broadcast of Live From Here. Wisconsin Public Radio’s To the Best of Our Knowledge will air Sundays from 10 a.m. to noon, replacing the variety show’s rebroadcast. 

Morning Edition: Declaration Of Independence
As we head into Independence Day Weekend, NPR’s Morning Edition will continue a decades old tradition: the reading of the Declaration of Independence. Hear Morning Edition on KRCU from 5-9 a.m.

On May 25, KRCU will air A Salute In Song for Memorial Day from producer Charlie Warren in celebration of the national holiday. 

This two-hour special will feature music of the Civil War, Spanish-American War, World Wars I & II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf, touching also on Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. It will document our country’s strife over entry into some wars, but respectfully acknowledge the hardships of combat, and honor our fighting men and women who have given the ultimate.
