Use Your Dollars to Influence KUT

RECEIVED Tue., Oct. 17, 2006

Dear Editor,
    “How do we keep KUT from drifting [off track]?” asks Stuart McDow [“Postmarks,” Oct. 13]. Here are two choices.
    Continue to support KUT but give J. Stewart Vanderwilt, station manager and architect of the “new” KUT, your two cents' worth when you renew your KUT membership. Simply add two cents to your pledge and express your support of a return to what made KUT a special Austin radio station – a great variety of music and not much spoken word.
    Or, do what I did. After 20-some years of support, I did not renew my KUT membership last spring. Too many “Support for KUT comes from” commercials ruin the flow of music, programming changes reflect a cold, corporate attitude, and veteran deejays like John Aielli continue to have their on-air hours cut. Yes, that same Aielli who once again was voted Best Radio Deejay in the 2006 Chronicle “Best of Austin” poll [Oct. 13].
