Brazos Educational Radio, KEOS 89.1 FM, has received a $6,500 grant from the Gilbert and Thyra Plass Arts Foundation to help the station cover the costs of broadcasting “World Café,” a popular syndicated program that highlights a variety of musical genres.
The Plass Arts Foundation is a local charitable trust established to continue Thyra and Gilbert Plass’s life-long mission of supporting artists and ensuring everyone access to the arts. This is the sixth year in a row that KEOS has been a recipient of a Plass Arts Foundation grant.
“The costs of syndicated programming continue to increase,” said KEOS Board of Directors President Krista May. “Without the ongoing support of the Plass Arts Foundation, we wouldn’t be able to afford to broadcast ‘World Café.’ KEOS is honored to receive a grant from such a respected community-focused arts foundation.”
“World Café,” hosted by David Dye, has emerged as the premiere public radio showcase for contemporary music serving up an eclectic blend that includes indie rock, singer-songwriters, folk, alternative country, blues, and world music. “World Café” is produced by WXPN in Philadelphia, distributed by National Public Radio (NPR), and airs each Monday through Friday on KEOS 89.1 FM from noon until 2:00 pm.
