If you have a family-friendly event or educational program happening in Western Massachusetts that you’d like to let us know about, post your event on our “Suggest An Event” page.


Tune in to the Hilltown Family Variety Show on Saturdays from 9-10am on Valley Free Radio (VFR), 103.3FM (Northampton, MA), or listen via streaming audio at Every Saturday VFR offers four hours of commercial-free, quality family program from 6-10am, including Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child from 7am-9am.  It’s better than Saturday morning cartoons!

As a preview to Saturday night’s concert, this week’s episode of the Hilltown Family Variety Show will feature a 1954 recording of the symphonic fairy-tale. Peter and the Wolf, performed by The Boston Pops Orchestra, conducted by Arthur Fiedler and narrated by Richard Hale. I know we said that last week, but we had technical difficulties and will air the tale Saturday morning.  And once again, special thanks to local listeners Peter and Kathy Elsea for lending us this LP from their personal collection.


Next week Bill Harley will be co-hosting the show!  That should be a great show, so be sure to join us!  Bill was on All Things Considered today.  Did you hear it?  If you didn’t get to hear, click here to listen.

Congratulations to both the Mazza and Kahn families (both in Florence, MA) on winning a pair of tickets to see Bill Harley with the Pioneer Valley Symphony this Saturday (see below).
