Radio Broadcasts

Most City Arts & Lectures programs can be heard in edited and delayed broadcasts in the San Francisco Bay Area on KQED-FM (88.5) on Sundays at 1 pm, Tuesday evenings at 8 pm, and Wednesday mornings at 2 am. These programs are also heard on over 170 public radio stations around the country (please contact your local affiliate for broadcast times). The radio broadcasts are hosted by Academy Award-winning actress Linda Hunt.

Our past 33 seasons of programming have been digitally archived at the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley. Those wishing to hear the archived programs can make a personal visit to the library. A list of shows can be viewed on their website.
