KLRU chooses three to four programs each month for your family to enjoy and view together. For January 2016, we have the following lined up:
Friday, January 1 at 6:30 pm: Great Performances “From Vienna: The New Year’s Celebration 2016”
Always one of “our favorite things,” the Vienna Philharmonic at the opulent Musikverein features everyone’s favorite Strauss Family waltzes accompanied by the beautiful dancing of the Vienna City Ballet. Stage and screen legend Julie Andrews returns as host.
Sunday, January 17 at 3:00 pm: The March
Witness the compelling and dramatic story of the 1963 March on Washington, where Dr. Martin Luther King gave his stirring “I Have a Dream” speech. This watershed event in the Civil Rights Movement helped change the face of America. The film reveals the dramatic story behind the event through the remembrances of key players such as Jack O’Dell, Clarence B. Jones, Julian Bond and Andrew Young.
Monday, January 18 at 7:00am and 2:30pm: Nature Cat
The week of January 18-22 kicks off on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day school holiday with a one-hour special featuring four brand new adventures featuring SNL voices for Daisy, Squeeks, Hal, and our eponymous hero, Nature Cat. The backyard gang travels near and far as they try to find the answers to some of life’s nagging nature questions, like “Where do streams begin?” and “What’s at the end of the rainbow?”
