Austin Music Network

For roughly what it costs to pave one block of city street, the Austin Music Network gives local cable subscribers a year's worth of music video-some national, most local. Sure there are lots of reruns; but, given the minuscule budget by TV standards, the staff does a deft job of covering all bases. Plus if you're watching that much TV, you probably have time enough to get out and see some live music. Don't cha think?
