Cheer Up Charlies
"...KUTX brainwashed me into attending its second birthday party – this past Saturday at Bass Concert Hall. The local NPR affiliate, which spun off an all-music signal in 2013, promoted the event relentlessly starting in December..."
"...KUTX announced the shake-up of its music snow globe Monday, shuffling the schedule of programming beginning Sept. 1..."
"...Curated by Aaron “Fresh” Knight and Jared "Confucius Jones" Williams, hosts of KUTX’s hip-hop show The Breaks, last Friday’s Summer Jam featured Austin’s diverse and talented hip-hop, R&B, and soul up-and-comers...."
"...Austin's premier hip-hop radio show, The Breaks, hosts KUTX's Summer Jam on Friday, August 31, 8pm, at Barracuda. And if the impressive lineup isn't enough (see below), half of all ticket sales will benefit local nonprofit Kids in a New Groove, which provides more than 150 Central Texas kids in foster care with free, weekly music lessons and mentorship...."
"...Last night’s Mind Over Music at the Palm Door had all the wonder and suspense of your usual trivia night, only with a score more geeks who hang out at record stores. The fourth annual fundraiser, put on by the Chronicle, finished after three hours of brain-racking competition with one clear champ: the radio whiz kids at KUTX...."
"...2 – KUT 90.5 (talk) vs. KUTX 98.9 (music)..."
"...Singer Kat Edmonson on air during KUTX’s pledge drive..."
"...Having bought into the idea that Austin could be a hip-hop city, noncommercial University of Texas frequency KUTX 98.9 took a calculated risk in handpicking Jared “Confucius Jones” Williams and Aaron “Fresh” Knight to host a Saturday night hip-hop show, The Breaks. The station saw it through Friday with an all-local, all-hip-hop SXSW showcase...."
"...The lights are out. Two televisions play sports on mute over desks belonging to KUTX deejays...."
"...Twine Time traveler Paul Ray famously said, “There hasn’t been any good music recorded after 1970.” The Jesus Lizard, Blue Öyster Cult, Scorpions – he would have haaated my hour of deejaying prior to his show this Saturday via a My KUTX segment, 6-7pm. I knew Paul Ray a little and was lucky to have gotten a “pass” decades ago from a man who suffered no posers...."
"...Most recently, it bravely – and some feel rashly – spun off its music half into KUTX 98.9FM, leaving the news and talk shows on the long-held KUT 90.5FM. KUTX also took a chance in bringing to the fore voices being groomed on KUT: Programming Director Matt Reilly, and hosts Rick McNulty, David Brown, and Laurie Gallardo..."
"...Emphasizing hip-hop being the music of today is how Confucius and Fresh got their own show on KUTX. Station Manager Matt Reilly remembers their pitch: "You're in the middle of campus with 50,000 kids walking around with earbuds on and most of them are listening to hip-hop."..."
"...Saturday night in Austin will never be the same. Paul Ray, who shared his enlightened taste in vintage soul, blues, and R&B here in the capital city every week since 1979 for KUT and KUTX on Twine Time, has died at the age 73..."
"...KUTX’s Jeff McCord introduced the Troobs (as loyal fans call them) before their ACL Fest set last Saturday, calling them one “of the best rock & roll bands” he’d ever seen. Many critics declared Austin’s legendary True Believers as one of the must-see acts at Zilker Park...."
