Is there an NPR here? Heck yeah! One of the best in the country if not the best. 90.1 KERA, all I ever listen to on the radio. I could tell you all the scheduled shows as a matter of fact, I'm a lil gaga for it if you can't tell already. Also, you can check out their sister station 91.7 for some groovy blues, folk, etc.

Yeah, there are two NPR stations in Dallas: news/talk KERA-FM/90.1 (KERA | Public Television, Radio and Online Media for North Texas) and all-music KXT-FM/91.7 (KXT 91.7 Public Music Radio for Dallas Fort Worth Denton). Don't forget there's also a non-NPR non-commercial station: eclectic (lots of jazz, blues, world music, Latin) KNON-FM/89.3 (Event content | KNON Radio)

You bet, National Peoples Radio. KERA-FM/90.1 I'd listen to it on Saturday's on my drive home and it had the show that SNL spoofs with Alec Baldwin and his "Schweaty Balls" and recently resurrected for Betty White and her muffin. I used to listed to The End of the Road Show, with Tom Bodett - that was great.

Sorry, but I'm jut wondering if you are trying to make a joke by calling National Peoples Radio. It is National Public Radio, but if you were trying to liven things up, then sorry.

You have never heard NPR referred to as that? NPR has been often referred to as National Peoples Radio for years because its very liberal leaning. Yes I was trying to liven things up, but geez, if you have to explain.... My humor can be very subtle and dry, but this was pretty obvious.

No, I haven't heard of it referred as that. But hey! now I know . And the reason I prephased w/an apology was to make sure you did not feel offended. Guess that apology didn't mean anything to you

Sure it did. I wasn't offended. I was just saying that if you have to explain a joke..., which is another old saying. Nothing to worry about.
