Keeping you in tune with the local music scene

Keeping listeners in tune with the Austin Music Experience is core to our mission. Interspersed between music sets each day you’ll hear two special segments spotlighting new music releases and local music events

Each weekday, Laurie Gallardo delivers the Austin Music Minute, your inside scoop on the local music scene with everything from cool new Austin bands to touring acts stopping in town for shows.

The KUTX Song of the Day airs multiple times each weekday and is available as a free download from our website. This daily feature promotes both local and touring artists while also delivering a community service. Some of the featured artists have included The Head and The Heart, David Ramirez, Lost and Nameless Orchestra, The Preatures and many more.

Each Saturday, we invite a local musician to take over the studio and curate a set of their favorite music. Some artists play songs that helped shape their own music, while others use the opportunity to take listeners on a journey of music discovery. Recent “My KUTX” artists include Bruce Robinson, Spoon’s Britt Daniel, Brennen Leigh, Austin City Limits’ Terry Lickona, Bobby Patterson, Robyn Ludwick and more. Find our “My KUTX” archive and playlist here.
