The Front Row

Weekdays at 9:00am

This fall, Texas Tech Public Radio debuted a locally produced program called The Front Row.  This program is devoted to arts coverage here on the South Plains.  Given the sheer number of arts offerings now available to the public, a program dedicated to in-depth coverage and promotion of these events is absolutely needed.  Lubbock, and the surrounding area, is home to an increasing number of art organizations.  These groups offer music (of all kinds), theater, literature, visual arts, film, you name it.  Many of our schools have well developed Fine Arts programs.  The quantity and quality of the arts in Lubbock has certainly reached a milestone.  The construction of the Buddy Holly Center for the Performing Arts demonstrates both level of art and culture in our community and the need for a world-class facility.  With all the events taking place, a radio show taking the time to unpack these programs will help public awareness, promotion, and evoke community pride in our cultural life.  Texas Tech Public Radio is certainly the entity to provide this coverage.  The audience that attends events like these is the audience that listens to Public Radio.  Further, the radio staff has the expertise to do a deep dive into these public events and the organizations that produce them.  Once the semester starts, The Front Row will air every weekday morning at 9am on FM89.1.  Be sure to listen!
