Local Teacher Brings Joy to Students by Printing Their Very Own KPR Mugs

The 2nd annual KPR Mug Design Contest took place this March and KPR received an excellent batch of mug design submissions from local 3rd grade teacher Shane Heiman's class. The students found ways to incorporate the KPR instructions and tied their unique perspective of what Kansas, community connections, and radio looked like to them. Before the pandemic, Mr. Heiman sent the students' designs out to be printed on mugs in the hopes that he'd have them ready upon students' return from spring break. While they were not able to get together again in the classroom, Shane did not let that stop him from brightening students' days by making home deliveries of all of their designed mugs.

Green Room Artist Feature: Joanna Beard

Talented local artist Joanna Beard is featured in the KPR Green Room this month with her paintings that truly inspire whimsy in us all. Joanna is an artist and musician who graduated from Sterling College. She grew up in Lawrence and you can see her art displayed all around galleries in Lawrence throughout the year. Most recently her pieces were featured at The Roost.

Teenage Rebellion Night ​at Cinema a Go-Go

First a blizzard/ice storm cancelled our night of Teenage Rebellion and now a pandemic. We are thinking Date Bait and High School Confidential may not be meant to hit the big screen at Liberty Hall again just yet. Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns for our listeners, members, sustainers, and Cinema a Go-Go fans, we have decided to cancel the April 10 Cinema a Go-Go. We will keep you all updated on the next available date.

And the Winner of the 2nd Annual KPR Mug Design Contest...

Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry into the 2nd Annual KPR Mug Design Contest. The KPR staff was overjoyed with the talent that comes forward in these contests. We had 29 unique designs entered into the competition; KPR selected our top 5 and then 1,249 of you voted, selecting Daniele Green as our winner.
