Thanksgiving weekend is one of the busiest of the year at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. And for many travelers, it’s their first introduction to Austin music. We sent an out-of-towner—an Australian radio reporter named Mike Williams—to explore what makes our airport one-of-a-kind.
KUT’s Texas Music Matters is partnering with the national Localore initiative and Zeega to create the Austin Music Map: a yearlong effort to go beyond the well-traveled streets of the Austin music scene in search of the hidden places where music is being made. We want your help discovering and documenting these places. To find out how to get involved, visit the Austin Music Map website or call our hotline with stories and tips: (512) 861-8266.[audio:https://kutx.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/AIRPORTMUSIC111012.mp3|titles=Music for airports]
