My KUTX: La Condesa’s Rick Lopez

Rick Lopez is the executive chef at Austin’s La Condesa, and he often uses music in the kitchen as motivation and inspiration. It’s a tie back to his childhood in San Antonio, where his father played in bands and taught him how music can be much more than the sum of its parts–just like a great meal. This week on My KUTX, Lopez is our guest DJ, talking about how everything from classic hip-hop, ’60s garage rock, and Austin music has made him who he is today. Listen to My KUTX on Saturday, December 14 at 6 p.m. or at anytime in the player below.
