You may have heard about some Christmas programs airing on other PBS stations that you don't see in our schedule. This is because most other PBS stations are holding December pledge drive right now and they are airing pledge programs at this time. We do not have a December pledge drive, so you won't see those programs on OETA. However, some of the non-holiday pledge programs might air during our March pledge drive, so stay tuned!
