New Programming for Spring

Spring has arrived in the Four Corners, and with the change of seasons comes some new programming on KSUT. It’s been a while since we’ve added fresh programs to our lineup, and we’re excited to do so. We’re replacing shows which have ceased new production and continue to repeat old episodes. We’ve also rearranged some time slots to create a better fit in the overall line-up. We’re introducing more locally produced shows to offer more variety. Other programming changes are a direct result of feedback from our members.

Here are some highlights from our new Spring line-up:

Colorado State Capitol Coverage returns to KSUT – Weekdays @ 11:00 a.m. The Capitol Coverage Project is an effort of Rocky Mountain Community Radio, a group of non-commercial public and community radio stations mainly in Colorado, providing daily news reports from sessions of the Colorado State Legislature, and regional features.

Weekend Edition – Saturday & Sunday 8:00–10:00 a.m.: Due to significant requests from our members, KSUT’s broadcast of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday & Sunday will come to you an hour earlier from 8-10 a.m. effective immediately. We realize that weekends in the Four Corners are filled with outdoor activity, so now you can get your NPR news fix before you head out for the day. As a result, Only A Game moves to 10 a.m. on Saturday, and Sound Opinions to Friday night, where it’s a better fit at 10 p.m.

Weeknight Programs: You’ll notice a variety of changes in our evening programming during the week. Our goal is to bring you more diverse and locally produced shows. Most notably, we’ve replaced the evening (repeat) broadcasts of the World Café with local shows and also some fresh, nationally produced programs. You can still catch World Café with David Dye Monday through Thursday at noon. We’re introducing Barrelhouse Blues with Rob Rawls Tuesday night from 7-9.  The popular locally produced program The Grass is Bluer with Hugh Felt comes to you earlier on Thursday evening, now at 7; followed by E-Town at 9:00 and then the new Nashville-based program Music City Roots from 10-midnight.

Weekend Programs: We’ve rearranged some weekend programs for a better overall fit in the line-up, and some shows have been replaced due to limited production or cancellation. We’ll continue to bring you our most popular programs, however some broadcast times have changed so be sure to see our complete schedule on our website.

KSUT strives to bring you the best possible programming available, creating a balanced mix of local and national programs. We’ve worked hard on our new line-up and hope that listeners enjoy the changes. We also realize that people have established listening habits and may need to adapt to the changes. Check out our new line-up, give it a chance to settle in, and then let us know what you think.

A complete program guide is available on our website under Programs.

Comment by Susan Livingston

Sorry Susan… Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz has ceased production. As a result, they have been airing repeat episodes for some time now. So we’re excited to bring in some new locally produced programming to fill the 7:00 slot on Tuesday evenings.

I haven’t seen the weekend changes, but I heard that rather than add more classical music, you’re eliminating some. If this is true, I’m really disappointed.

I miss Sound opinions Saturday morning!!

It was a perfect time, I think, the kids could watch cartoons and I got to listen to a super cool show! I often learned about new music through this show and enjoyed the adult content in the early morning since I will never be up at 10pm to listen to this show!

Please consider moving it back, it truly was my favorite show and at a great time!
