Roadtrip through Texas when you join KLRU Passport!
Posted on May 11, 2018
Kickstart your spring Texas-style with three local Texas productions, only available on KLRU Passport. Each program gives fascinating insight into some of the special places found along the mighty plains of our Lone Star State. You might just find the perfect weekend destination.
Start your exploration with the hidden masterpieces inside The Painted Churches of Texas: Echoes of the Homeland. Found within 15 churches constructed by 19th century immigrants, nearly every surface, from the baseboards to the apses, are covered in paint.
Once taken for granted, these painted churches of Texas are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. German and Czech inscriptions on the walls stand out as reminders of how far these architects traveled to find a new life in Texas.
Produced by the award-winning filmmaker who brought you The Painted Churches of Texas, Tom Spencer presents Las Misiones: Missions of Texas. This moving documentary showcases the architectural beauty and historical significance of missions in San Antonio, El Paso and Goliad.
These Texas wonders are important religious and community gathering places, many of which are still functioning churches more than 300 years into their history!
Wine Roads of Texas is a breathtaking video travel guide for those interested in exploring the ever-growing and award-winning Texas wine industry.
Narrated by the Grammy Award winning lead singer of Asleep at the Wheel, Ray Benson, the series boasts gorgeous Texas scenery and a beautiful musical soundtrack. Each episode even offers tips on selecting the best Texas varietals, so you can begin testing regional wines at home!
