The Children's Hour is a weekly radio show created for and with kids. We offer the same content through two different PRX delivery methods, the automated PRX delivery service, and the downloadable exchange. 

The Children's Hour is a weekly, educational and entertaining public radio program for kids and families. Using excellent music, expert guests, talented kids and a format that is a proven success in growing and keeping listeners of all ages engaged.

The Children's Hour includes kids in all aspects of the production. We're dedicated to filling educational gaps, by focusing on civics, STEM, culture, and performance, using interviews with scientists, experts in all fields, civil servants, cultural educators, performers and others, and weaving shows together with a wide variety of musical genres.

Kids on our crew and in our community contribute content, design programming, and cohost our shows.

We are happy to make station tags. Just reach out to us at info@childrenshour.org
