Radio celebrates live stories

Marfa Public Radio and West Texas Public Radio will host a live storytelling event and happy hour on April 2 at the Rose Building.

This event will be held in conjunction with their Spring Membership Drive, coming right at the heels of the station’s 12th year in operation.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the happy hour party featuring a live DJ.

Beer will be provided courtesy of Big Bend Brewing Co., a sponsor of the station’s Live Storytelling Program. Stories will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The theme of this event is All or Nothing: True Stories of Taking Big Risks, where participants will recount true stories of going for broke and reaching for the stars.

The Spring Membership Drive also begins April 2. In lieu of the regular party at the radio station, the staff hopes you’ll join them for the happy hour and evening of stories from friends and neighbors.
