My KUTX: Stewart Vanderwilt

Photo by Julia Reihs/KUTX

For eighteen years, Stewart Vanderwilt has served as the director of KUT and KUTX, helping create an award-winning news team, our fancy new digs, and giving us music nerds our own spot on the radio dial to stretch our legs. But with Vanderwilt moving on to greener, more mountainous pastures, we’re turning the keys over to him one last time. This week on My KUTX, Vanderwilt takes a trip down memory lane, playing an hour of his all-time favorite live performances he caught in our Studio 1A over the years. Happy trails, Stewart! Hear My KUTX on Saturday, June 23, 6 to 7 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page.
