KUTX on the day before its official launch is having Austin musicians host for an hour each. Robert Harrison of Austin's Cotton Mather(!) played this song this morning. I did a blog search on WYMA and didn't find them referenced there. Did I miss it?


Good stuff.

s KGSR, a formerly great station which was put out to pasture 3-4 years ago by Emmis and its corporate influence, resulting in just really bad, bland radio even if still populated by some good people on the air. I have told anyone who will listen that my best Christmas present is KUTX, which kicks off tomorrow at 5:30 AM.

I'll be in the new BELO KUT studio tomorrow at 2:00 PM for KUTX's first live show, with nearby Dripping Springs resident Sam Beam/Iron & Wine.
