The Children’s Hour is a weekly, live radio show created for and with kids. We cover topics that are incredibly diverse using interviews, storytelling, poetry, music, and discussion live on the air. Learn something new with us.

“The Children’s Hour” has been a popular Saturday morning staple of the KUNM, 89.9 FM lineup since 2002. The show provides a free, easily accessible weekly educational service for children listening, 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 aspects of 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.
