Did you enjoy the rainy day yesterday by staying inside and turning on KLRU? If so, you would have caught the incredible Andrea Bocelli all-star concert in Central Park and the encore presentation of the first episode of Downton Abbey – you can always count on KLRU for quality programming, enriching our lives with the finest in arts and culture.

The December pledge drive is here and as we approach the end of the year, KLRU needs to raise $240,000 to continue the kind of quality programming and community engagement that Central Texas has come to expect for almost 50 years!
Whether you can donate $1 or $100, your support matters – we have so many ways to thank you for your donation and are excited to present some truly special programs over the next few weeks for your enjoyment!
- Through out the pledge drive, we are going to be giving away t-shirts to folks who comment on our #whyKLRU blog, Facebook and Twitter posts. Everyday, we’ll give away a prize package that includes 5 t-shirts featuring KLRU Q, Central Texas Gardner, Austin City Limits, PBS Newshour, and KLRU-TV – all you have to do is share a comment, a story, a question and you’ll be entered to win! We’ll pick winners everyday, so comment often!
All these could be yours, just let us know #whyKLRU!
- Tonight is the PBS Arts Festival premier of Andrea Bocelli: One Night in Central Park – a beautiful concert made even more special by the exclusive offer for KLRU viewers to see Andrea Bocelli in concert when he comes to Austin in February.

- On Sunday evening at 8:30pm, we are going to be live in the KLRU studios with the first episode of Downton Abbey!
