The Children’s Hour is a weekly radio show created for and with kids. Incredibly diverse themes are explored using interviews, storytelling, poetry, music, and discussion with kids on our talented Kids Crew. Learn something new with us.
“The Children’s Hour” has been a popular Saturday morning staple of the KUNM, 89.9 FM lineup for decades. The show provides a free, easily accessible weekly educational service for listeners of all ages, while offering fun, exciting, and useful production opportunities for children involved in making the show happen.
Each episode seeks to entertain while recognizing that almost no topic is too “sophisticated” for children, and that through exposure to science, technology, community service, civic engagement and cultural collaboration, we can successfully address both educational gaps and trends toward low public participation by young people. We feature young performers and thinkers, as well as adult expert guests in all fields, and weave the show themes together with great music.
Length: available as both 58 minutes and 54 minutes
