He’s written hits for Jerry Jeff Walker and performed in honky tonks all over the world—but one of his biggest influences is obscure French poetry. He’s Ray Wylie Hubbard, and today on the Austin Music Experience, he shares stories and songs, live from Studio 1A. We also tip our caps to the Walkmen and the Gourds, two bands that recently called it quits. But Ruthie Foster is still going strong—we’ll dig into the archives for a fiery live track from the Grammy nominee and blues ambassador. Plus, the Band’s Rick Danko at the Cactus Cafe, new music from Gary Clark Jr. and Shearwater, and we hear from a listener about their favorite Austin Music Experience—let’s just say you don’t want to tell Al Green to ever get off the stage. Join us Friday at noon and again Friday night at 11 on KUTX 98.9, or listen anytime in the player below.
