Austin’s innovative, authentic and passionate nature influences every aspect of our approach to music coverage. Our programming includes music that matters to our audience — music that is hand-picked for its substance, integrity and perspective. We try to see music the way that you do — as a soundtrack to your day, a window to other perspectives, an amplifier of mood, and a reflection of culture. KUTX 98.9 FM features more local music than any station in Austin, as well as diverse selections from around the globe. The result is programming that reflects Austin’s creative spirit and diverse tastes.
KUTX plays more than 30,000 different songs and hosts nearly 300 live music performances every year. Why? Because, music matters to us. From KUTX Live events and Studio 1A performances, to Texas Music Matters and coverage of music’s most influential forums and festivals, we are driven by a desire to bring you unparalleled coverage and access to the world of music.
