International Women’s Day 2023

March 8 is International Women’s Day –  a worldwide day of recognition and action for women. KUTX is participating in the best way we know how: with music!

For years now, KUTX has celebrated this annual event with special programming, curated and hosted by the women of KUTX.  But, the last two years, we’ve switched things up to give the women of KUTX a much deserved day-off. Join the men of KUTX from 6 A.M. to 9 P.M. on Wednesday, March 8, as they shine the spotlight on women-identifying musicians hailing from right here in Austin and around the world.

On-Air Schedule for March 8

6-9 A.M. – Confucius Jones fills in for morning host Taylor Wallace
9 A.M. – 1 P.M. – Fresh Knight fills in for midday host Susan Castle
1-5 P.M. – Ryan Wen fills in for afternoon host Laurie Gallardo
5-8 P.M. – Jody Denberg hosts from his usual spot
8-9 P.M. – Soundfounder, in his usual spot, highlights women in electronic music
Afterward, stay tuned for Sheroes – womxn-powered playlists and interviews – at 9 P.M.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Join the 2023 Campaign on social media with #IWD2023 and #embraceequity.
