My KUTX: Texas Standard

Texas Standard is a daily news show that covers all things Texas, from politics and the environment to the Great Breakfast Taco Debate between Austin and San Antonio. It airs every weekday at 10 a.m. just down the dial from us at our sister station, KUT 90.5.

The Standard turned one year old this week and to celebrate, the staff is letting their hair down (and believe us, host David Brown used to have really long hair). They’re the collective guest DJ this week on My KUTX, spinning their favorite songs by Texas artists. These are personal picks, ones that make them think of home or songs that show off Texas music at its finest. Listen in the player at the bottom of the page.
