The KUT Holiday Sing-Along started in the early 1980s when KUT/X host John Aielli, an accomplished vocalist, gathered with friends and fans to sing carols in the Texas Capitol rotunda. Over the years, the sing-along outgrew the rotunda and moved outside to the Capitol steps. In 2002, KUT paired up with the Downtown Austin Alliance to combine the sing-along with the annual Capitol tree lighting and Downtown Holiday Stroll, where Aielli hosted solo until being joined by KUTX host Elizabeth McQueen in 2016.

The holidays may look a little different this year, but KUT and KUTX aren’t letting that get in the way of connecting people through the power of song.

The 30-minute special, hosted by Elizabeth McQueen (co-host of KUT and KUTX’s new podcast Pause/Play), features holiday favorites sung by Austin musicians Molly Burch, Gina Chavez, Eimaral Sol, and Kevin Russell of Shinyribs, with a special appearance by our beloved John Aielli.

 Happy Holidays from KUT and KUTX!
