Witch-hunting fever has infected the town of Salem, turning neighbor against neighbor with devastating results. University of Houston voice students are readying themselves for The Crucible, the Pulitzer prize-winning opera by Robert Ward about the Salem witch trials based upon Arthur Miller’s famous play. A searing indictment of mob psychology, Arthur Miller’s classic drama was written as a response to the McCarthy anti-Communist witch-hunts of the 1950’s. Tonight at 7:30 P-M. University of Houston, School of Music Building. For information, call 713-743-3313 or visit uh.edu/cota/music/opera.
Explore a new form of creative expression when Fort Bend County Libraries’ Sugar Land Branch Library presents an “Adult Coloring-Book Hour” tonight from 6:30 to 8:30 P-M, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 550 Eldridge. Adult coloring is the latest trend in relaxation and stress-reduction techniques. Coloring has been shown to lower heart rates and is thought to lower blood pressure as well. The creative process of coloring can also be a way to exercise the brain. All coloring materials will be provided. The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required. For more information, call the Sugar Land Branch Library at 281-238-2140, or the library system’s Public Information Office at 281-633-4734.
Tonight at the Museum of Fine Arts: Anchor Man, The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is San Diego’s top-rated TV newscaster in the male-dominated 1970s broadcasting world. But Ron’s position is challenged when the network hires an ambitious female reporter (Christina Applegate) who has her eye on the anchor’s chair. Soon, the rival newscasters are engaged in a battle of the sexes with hilarious results. This film will be introduced by singer Kam Franklin. For more information about tickets you may call 713-639-7515 or visit www.mfah.org/film.
In addition to its FM grid, KPFT hosts a schedule of simultaneous programming streaming via web and HD radio, and accessible via apps like TuneIn Radio. It is considered FM content by the FCC, and must adhere to the same language, commercialism and station rules as our terrestrial schedule. New programming is considered here.
Interested? Contact the Station with a bit about your idea with the following information:
- Name of the program
- Short description of the program
- People participating in the program
- Time/day preferred to air
Potential hosts are expected to sign off on station policies (covering FCC rules, etc.) before the first show and to be present for the show every week.
KPFT is interested in Spanish-language programming as well as programming from KPFT’s diverse communities.
Want to submit your music to KPFT for airplay consideration? Here’s how to do it:
First, listen to KPFT and check out our program schedule and playlists. Our hosts have freedom to choose music for their shows, and you’ll get a better idea of the diverse kinds of artists that get airplay here.
If you think your music is a fit, send us a CD for the Music Library.
KPFT maintains a music CD library for its program hosts to consider for airplay. New music is added to the New Releases section in the library on an ongoing basis.
CDs added to the music library are available for programmers to consider for their shows, but airplay is not guaranteed. Send new music submissions to:
KPFT Music Library
419 Lovett Blvd.
Houston, TX 77006
Currently, the KPFT music library does not accept digital submissions.
In addition to the initial music library copy, if you would like to send extra music CDs as personal copies for program hosts, send separate packages addressed to the attention of the programs in care of the station address above. Again, airplay is not guaranteed. For further assistance, email or call 713-526-4000.
The KPFT playlists archive reflects airplay for music programs as it occurs. Airplay reporting takes place after the fact for applicable formats.
Artists seeking to have their upcoming live music performances at Houston area venues posted on the Weekly Concert Calendar should email the performance information (artist/band name, name of venue, and date of live music performance at venue) to blueshound(at)kpft.org. The weekly deadline is Thursday at 5 p.m.
ON-AIR GUEST APPEARANCES
To request an on-air interview and/or live music performance, contact the programs’ hosts directly via email. On-air guest scheduling is done by the individual program hosts. Some programs that regularly feature guests are booked months in advance. Due to facility restrictions, the KPFT chief engineer has requested that on-air live music performances be acoustic only.
To provide CDs to be used as membership incentives (thank-you gifts for listener donations during KPFT membership drives), contact the Membership Department at 713-526-4000, x314.
Airing at 6 PM on dates Texas is scheduled to execute an inmate, Execution Watch focuses on matters of the death penalty.
During fundraising campaigns, Execution Watch airs on KPFT’s HD3 channel.
Unless a stay is issued, Execution Watch is broadcast live at 6.
