Our weekly show focuses on live music, but there are other stories that make up the Austin Music Experience. This year, we learned about an independent record label that helped put Austin on the musical map. A roots-rock legend’s experiment with computers. A quiet band that would influence Death Cab For Cutie and Blink-182. A soul man who’s had pretty much every job possible in the record industry.
This week on the show we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite interviews from the past year. Some of the characters might be familiar—Johnny Winter, Joe Ely, Fontella Bass, Ben Gibbard—but these stories hopefully shine a light on some lesser-known sides to the Austin Music Experience.
