Mississippi Public Broadcasting’s Think Radio fans are getting a late Christmas gift from the station.
Beginning Saturday, the MPB Think Radio weekend line-up will change, thanks to the addition of two new shows.
“We wanted to shift some things things around for the weekend line-up to make the programs flow better from program to program,” said Margaret McPhillips, director of public relations at MPB.
Saturday’s light-hearted comedy and quiz show line-up will fill up thanks to the two new shows, “Ask Me Another” and American Public Media’s “The Dinner Party.”
“Ask Me Another” is an hour-long program that blends brainteasers and trivia with comedy and music. It will air at 11 a.m. Saturdays.
“The Dinner Party” is an hour-long celebration of food, culture and conversation. Topics range from music, etiquette, odd bits of history, cocktail recipes to visits from artists like Spike Lee or Willie Nelson. “The Dinner Party” will air at 1 p.m. Saturdays.
Other changes to the line-up include:
• NPR’s quiz show “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me” will move to noon Saturdays.
• “American Roots” will air at 11 p.m. Saturdays.
• NPR’s sports magazine “Only a Game” will air at 6 a.m. Sundays.
• Environmental news program “Living on Earth” will air at 10 a.m. Sundays.
“We hope our listeners will really be pleased with the new Saturday line-up,” McPhillips said.
