The Children's Hour, 7/20 Sat 9a: We're going to the zoo and you're invited! We'll have a FREE live show from the Albuquerque Zoo on the Africa stage with Dr Flynn, the ABQBiopark's mammal curator, and featuring musical guests, the band Zoolojams. 

Learn about how zoos are working to save endangered species, including the snow leopard at the Albuquerque Zoo. The kids find out what it's really like to be a zookeeper.

All ages are welcome! For free entry, the zoo will open the northernmost gate in the parking lot for just 15 minutes from 8:30 to 8:45am.  

Find us between the hyenas and chimps for The Children’s Hour this Saturday, July 20th, live at the Albuquerque Zoo. This show is brought to you by The Children's Hour Inc.

Katie Stone is the host and producer of The Children's Hour radio show and podcast. The show's goal is to bring informative, entertaining and engaging radio programming to listeners of all ages, showcasing local kids and kid-friendly organizations, while involving kids in all aspects of the production. Katie works with a crew of dedicated children who help produce the show, including writing and voicing scripts and reviews, helping choose jokes, show themes, music and guests, and assisting in all aspects of the live broadcast. Katie also reaches into the community, with regular live broadcasts from venues across New Mexico. She also partners with teachers to create radio shows for class projects, and joins with community organizations to bring kids voices to public radio. She hopes everyone listening comes away with new knowledge about the topic du jour. Katie started in radio when she was just 14 years old at WDGC-fm in Downers Grove, Illinios. Katie is the executive director of The Children's Hour, Inc, a New Mexico nonprofit dedicated to creating and distributing public radio for kids. The show is produced at the Sun Spot Solar Studio. Katie and her husband have raised four kids, and are delighted to be grandparents. They live in a handmade house on a solar powered organic farm in Albuquerque near the Rio Grande tending their orchard, gardens, chickens, children, a llama, cats, dogs, fish and thousands of bees.
