If you’ve been an Austin music fan over the past fifteen years, chances are you’ve heard an Erik Wofford production. He runs Cacophony Recorders, a studio that’s played host to everything from the, um, cacophony of the Black Angels and Explosions In The Sky to the nuanced folk of Bill Callahan and Okkervil River. Recently, he lent his production know-how to Golden Dawn Arkestra, capturing that band in its full-blown stargazing glory.

This week on My KUTX, Wofford gives us a taste of his extraordinary career with an hour-long guest DJ set, detouring through his early inspirations, his days as a UT student DJ at KVRX, working with the Black Angels, and what he’s recording now. Tune in Saturday, June 4 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
