Caroline Rose is drawn to odd combinations. We fell in love with her 2018 album Loner for its mix of sardonic lyrics and sticky power-pop melodies, and as our guest DJ this week, Rose throws together a wonderfully strange hour of sounds and moods. She highlights classical influences in the Backstreet Boys, shows how songs can be both funny and political, and plays Buddy Guy and Ace Of Base back-to-back. Hear Rose’s My KUTX on Saturday, October 12 at 6 p.m. or listen at any time in the player below, and be sure to catch her at ACL Fest on Sunday, October 13 at 11:45 a.m.
