Larry Berger and the Saturday Light Brigade have been bringing excellent family friendly entertainment to this region as long as I can recall. Interesting and talented guests, thought provoking discussion, fun and challenging, interactive puzzles - these are just some of the regular offerings that make the Saturday Light Brigade a favorite of people of all ages.
I have been a listener since 1978 and have the great pleasure of being friends with Larry and Rikki Berger. The Saturday Light Brigade and SLB Productions provides a welcoming space for people to share songs and stories. Their outreach programs teach young people to use radio and digital platforms to connect with members of their community. SLB is a unique organization.
The Saturday Light Brigade is truly a shining star!! The work that Larry and Rikki and their folks do in Western Pennsylvania and beyond reminds us that there is so much good going on in the world, so much of it being contributed by young people! Inspiring to see and hear!!
The Saturday Light Brigade has been part of our family for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest family memories are of calling in to the show with my dad, solving the puzzles, and singing along to some of the songs we would only ever hear here. As we've gotten older and busier, SLB still brings us together; we can all listen through streaming services or different local stations and play along together. This is a great family-friendly, but not exclusively for children, show that is fresh, charming and fun week after week.
SLB radio hosted an amazing program that allowed my son to work on his literacy skills. receive a laptop, and introduced to exceptional men in the community. Thank you SLB!
SLB is a great show. They have hosted my daughter and allowed her to share her musical talents for the past 3 years. They are very supportive and encouraging of the areas youth.
I was invited to play original music on SLB and the folks running the program were welcoming and most professional. I had a wonderful experience and appreciate the effort to expand reach of local performing arts with youth audiences in mind.
Saturday Light Brigade truly places the community and the people before all else - never failing to bring a diversity of fun, exciting, and challenging material, and staying true to it's core purpose. It provides avenues for people of all backgrounds, ages, and callings, and is a shining example of the honest spark of creativity that drives us all, and the neighborly kindness and acceptance that makes our world a better place. They do their work and they do it well. Please explore, educate yourselves and support them.
My band Sean Howard Orchestra was a guest on SLB. What a pleasure. The Host Larry kept us focused, and the engineers made us sound fantastic! Hope to be back to follow up on the progress of the band!
I was invited to speak on the radio at this station this past summer. It was a great experience. The members of the staff were all friendly and made sure I felt welcome.
SLB does great work and are wonderful people to work with! I collaborated with them as part of the Heinz Endowments Youth Philanthropy Internship program, and it was one of the best things I've created in my life.
Fantastic radio show with folk music, interviews and local performers as well as segments that promote wholesome community events.
Saturday Light Brigade has been a part of our Saturday morning for years. Although we don't have children of our own, as teachers we find a deep appreciation for what SLB represents to families throughout the area. This program treats children with great respect and showcases their many talents. It represents a wholesome and fun activity time that encourages everyone to think and share. We believe that SLB demonstrates what a powerful media radio can be.
SLB Radio host Larry Berger is the one Pittsburgher who I revere as much as Mr. Rogers. He interacts with young folks that well, but he is also very deep, insightful and knowledgeable of music ranging from classical to folk to rock-n-roll, which makes SLB one of my favorite radio programs, a must listen for all ages.
I’ve been listening to SLB for at least 20 years. It was fun on Sat mornings with my kids, and it’s still great now. And the educational programs teaching all kinds of skills (research, organization, interviewing, public speaking, etc etc etc) are invaluable in today’s society.
My four year old wakes up looking for the show and asked when Saturday is coming. He loves going to the live feeds.
SLB radio has been part of our lives for 30 years. We love the games, the family atmosphere, the interviews, the music, the community, everything about the show. I've lived all over the country and there is nothing else like this show.
SLB Radio is an incredible community asset. Their work to help young people use their voice, tell their story, and learn from others is unparalleled. Thank you to the entire SLB team for their work throughout the region.
SLB Radio Productions is a true community partner and community champion. They are a voice for big and small; a resource for people of all ages. Through their amazing strategic growth, they have been able to maintain the personal touch. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them to serve young people in our community.....and grateful for their programming which I listen to and enjoy very much!
