KUOW's new weekend schedule starts september 19
KUOW will debut a new weekend schedule beginning Saturday, September 19. The changes come following the cancellation of Live From Here by American Public Media.
The World Café from NPR and WXPN will air Saturdays from 7-9 p.m. Hosted by Raina Douris, the program features new and significant music and the artists who create it. Each week listeners hear a blend of blues, rock, world, folk, and alternative country, live performances, and intimate interviews.
On Sundays, Fresh Air Weekend will move to a new time of 10 a.m., followed by a rebroadcast of Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me! Fresh Air Weekend collects the best cultural segments from the week's programs and crafts them together for great weekend listening.
On Sunday nights, Sound Opinions will move up one hour to 9 p.m. The BBC World Service will also begin one hour earlier, at 10 p.m.
