Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey Season 4 Encore, Sundays at 7 pm on KUAC TV

Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey Season 4 EncoreCatch up with everything Downton with an entire Season 4 encore leading up to Season 5’s premiere on January 4th.

Six months after Downton Abbey’s great tragedy, Mary is mired in grief and the estate is engulfed in death taxes. As the family struggles to lift their financial and emotional woes, clashes arise, sparks fly, and it is up to the older generation to bring Mary back to life, and Robert to his senses – no easy task in either respect. Another departure leaves no tears in its wake, but rather opportunity for new faces – and drama, alliances, and sparks of an entirely different sort – below stairs. Tune in Sunday night at 7 for part 1 & 2 of Season 4 on KUAC TV Channel 9.1, or GCI Channel 9 & GCI Channel 657 for HD.

Odd Squad Premiere Week, Sundays at 7:30 am on KUAC TV

Odd Squad PremiereIf there’s a fire, call the fire department. A robbery? Call the police. But if you wake to find that your dog has been doubled, or that your spouse has shrunk, or that you are somehow caught in a weird time loop — or that you are somehow caught in a weird time loop — that’s when you call Odd Squad. It’s a high-tech agency run by kids equipped with the world’s most advanced and unpredictable gadgetry. Why kids and not adults you ask? We told you this squad was a little odd. Have the kids tune in Sunday morning at 7:30 am (and Wednesdays at 6 am & 3:30 pm) on KUAC TV Channel 9.1, or GCI Channel 9 & GCI Channel 657 for HD.

PipedreamsKUAC3 now carries Pipedreams! A weekly two-hour radio show featuring pipe organ music, airing Sundays from 8-10 pm. Each week, Pipedreams host Michael Barone shares selected organ works and performances, and in doing so, encourages listeners to engage both their ears and imaginations to gain greater appreciation of this instrument. He talks with composers, organists, organ builders and restorers. The show features brand new instruments in churches and concert halls, plus historic pipe organs recorded in locations around the world, from ancient instruments in vast cathedrals to the “mighty Wurlitzers” of movie house fame. Pipedreams remains the only nationally distributed weekly radio program exploring the art of the pipe organ, and is aired on public radio stations around the country including KUAC. It is just one of the many weekly programs available on KUAC3 online, KUAC HD3 or KUAC TV 9.7.
