The Designated Mourner
The Designated Mourner is one man's elegiac yet disdainful recollection of a group of people and a way of life that have vanished under the thumb of an unnamed oppressive...

Film Review  July 25, 1997, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...As the so-called “Designated Mourner,” film director and stage actor Mike Nichols (The Graduate, Silkwood, and The Birdcage) is spectacular in his first-ever acting performance onscreen. The movie is the film version of a play written by the multi-talented Wallace Shawn (My Dinner With André, Radio Days, Toy Story, Clueless) and mounted with great success last year in London with this same group of principals..."

Music of the Spheres

Radio Snack
Food on the airwaves in Austin
Food Story  July 15, 2011, by MM Pack
"...You can divide the world between those who listen to radio (not only in the car) and those who get their media fixes elsewhere. It's been decades since radio waves – along with newspapers – were the primary connection from the larger world into American homes, and broadcasting has gone through enormous changes since its early days..."

The Basement Tapes
The Netherworld of Iconoclastic Music
Music Story  March 28, 1997, by Greg Beets
"...On a different front, Negativland's many challenges to the status quo have been hot enough to embroil them in lawsuits. The Bay Area-based collective is best known for being sued by Island Records (and later their own label, SST) in part for splicing a snippet of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" with a foul-mouthed outtake from "Casey Kasem's Top 40" radio show to create the 1991 12-inch "U2 Negativland." While the ensuing controversy furthered their position on the absurdity of the U.S..."

Film Review  February 3, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten

Who Let the Dogs Out?
A playlist for the dog days of summer
Music Story  July 16, 2015, by Raoul Hernandez, Kahron Spearman, Jim Caligiuri, Doug Freeman, Michael Toland, William Harries Graham, Tim Stegall, Marc Savlov, Jay Trachtenberg, Abby Johnston, Greg Beets, Margaret Moser, Thomas Fawcett, Neph Basedow and Kevin Curtin
"..."Yeah, this is a story of a famous dog." In 1982, P-Funk's R&B chart-topper almost got run down in the street, the author's industry revolt colliding with radio programmers and the oncoming youth tidal wave. Later sampled into a standard, its "nasty dogs," old-school lyricism (possibly crack-induced, according to Clinton), and a monster bassline create a "futuristic bow-wow." – Kahron Spearman "Black Dog," Blue Mountain..."

Born on the Fourth of July
Explosions in the Sky are blowing up. (Sorry, we resisted the pun as long as we could.)
Music Story  October 24, 2003, by Michael Chamy
"...They had been invited in studio for KVRX's Local Live, performing under the unbecoming moniker of Breaker Morant, and it was there they cut "Remember Me as a Time of Day," an early-morning tracer of uncomplicated beauty that remains one of their best works. The composition also marked Explosions' recorded debut, appearing on volume 4 of the college radio frequency's compilation series..."

The LuvDoc's Celebrity Corner
An interview with Rachel McGruder, Asst. Events Manager
DAILY Chronolog  August 10, 2012, by The Luv Doc
"...Rachel:  Honestly, I had good parents (if overly protective), decent schools, food on the table, clothes on my back - what angst was there, really? River Oaks Elementary was very progressive for its time!  We had a Mac IIc in 5th grade!  4th grade we had a Radio Shack TRS80. That's why I'm a member of the ROAA!  Nothing wrong with elementary school...."

Page Two: The Suburbs
Growing up with Phoebe Snow, whose presence and music transcended the ordinary
Columns  May 6, 2011, by Louis Black
"...Now, the major suburban ritual was that when at least one friend gets a driver's license, usually in 11th or 12th grade, you could graduate from hanging out at one another's homes and switch to endlessly, pointlessly driving around. As Jonathan Richman noted, driving beat the hell out of hanging at someone's home because you would have the "radio on!" We'd drive listening to all the great New York City radio stations..."

The Austin Avalanche of Rock & Roll!
When IRS Records' 'The Cutting Edge' Came to Town and Made Me Want to, Too
Features Story  March 16, 2001, by Kate X Messer
"...Allin hour or anything. But this was a time when even college and community radio stations played it safe (at least in Florida), keeping the daytime and prime time programming within the rather staid confines of more established rebel music like the blues, or zydeco, or roots-rockabilly..."

The Real Deal
The Texas Documentary Tour
Screens Story  September 5, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...We were talking about the fact that a lot of the best stuff at SXSW last year was documentaries, and thought it might be neat to have a series throughout the entire year, bringing filmmakers in from Texas and outside, once a month, to show their work. Everybody thought it was a pretty good idea, so we decided to do it." Created under the combined auspices of South by Southwest Film, the Austin Film Society, The Austin Chronicle, and the University of Texas Department of Radio-Television-Film, the project is the brainchild of Stekler, who is the department's new production area head..."

Unlocking the Joys of Austin’s Puzzle Rooms
Escape rooms bring the solitary diversions to life
Arts Story  July 28, 2016, by Marc Majcher
"...We were told at the outset that each item would be used only once, so it was easy to follow the path laid out by the clues as they branched and rejoined each other. Although the puzzles were wide-ranging and challenging, our team made steady progress, and with the help of a few pointers given to us over the radio, we uncovered step after step of the Soviet agent's plot..."

The Next Wave
A comprehensive look at the emerging Rock en Español movement in the United States
Music Story  November 12, 1999, by Melissa Sattley
"...And yet increasingly, bands from all over Latin America's wide expanse are creating new hybrids of music by marrying their traditional rhythms to rock rebellion and the rolled eyes of American pop culture. Muddy Waters summed up rock music by saying, "Jazz and blues had a baby and they called it rock & roll." Well, muy macho American rock & roll had a fling with a sultry Latin sounds, and the result was "Rock en Español." A loose umbrella term for bands that sing in Spanish while mixing rock, rap, R&B, thrash -- you name it -- Rock en Español may be the most exciting movement in rock music currently, despite radio stations ignoring it for the most part (what else is new?), and record labels across the United States only recently developing departments to promote this emerging genre..."

Music Story  May 22, 1998, by Michael Bertin
"...A quaint town with an approximate population of 60,000, Victoria's biggest claim to fame might be as the birthplace of Popeye (yep, the comic strip started there), or as the hometown of big leaguers Ron Gant and Doug Drabek. But Victoria is also the place where the future of radio can be heard..."

International Acts at SXSW
Music Story  March 13, 1998, by Michael Bertin

The Little Station That Could
Austin's AAA station KGSR and its market ascendance.
Music Story  December 22, 2000, by Michael Bertin
"...Austin's celebrated FM outlet, 107.1 on the dial, at which Denberg is program director, had added incentive to carouse that night: It was the KGSR 10th Anniversary. No easy feat for a radio station these days, much less one that isn't trafficking in Shania and Garth or dishing out the same steady diet of "Roundabout" with a helping of "More Than a Feeling."..."

In the Shadow of the Dinosaurs
The Death of Indie Labels: Reports Have Been Exaggerated
Music Story  May 2, 1997, by Michael Bertin
"...Marketing an album to get even those small sales figures, however, is where the indie labels fight the battle. Indies are at a huge disadvantage in that they simply don't have the financial coffers that a major label has to throw money at an album -- to work it at radio, in the press, and in retail -- in order to generate the hype and the notoriety, which generally translates into sales...."

The Big Cheese
South by Southwest 1997
Music Story  March 21, 1997
"...But despite the obvious hook, line, and sinker references, the Weird Lovemakers played full-on, balls-out punk rock, like Lollapalooza never happened and never should have. So, will folks who receive signals like these via complete shit radio dookie like Green Day and who think that punk had its day and then its second day, comprehend what's special about a little punk band that could, but doesn't go for gimmicks, funny outfits, or smearing/spitting anything on either themselves or the audience? Hmmmmm..."

The Pre-Millennium Rise of Dance Music
Music Story  December 6, 1996, by Marc Savlov
"...If anything, 1996 will probably be remembered as the year that crunchy-on-the-outside, soft-and-chewy-on-the-inside groups such as Gravity Kills, Stabbing Westward, and Manchester hardbeat warlords the Prodigy beat the living crap out of Eddie Vedder's mewling, vacuous whine fest. They took their own sweet time, but radio listeners across the country finally dug down deep and bought a clue: The emperor has no clothes..."

Living the pop life in Austin
Music Story  May 4, 2001, by Christopher Gray
"...Three years on, a cluster of enterprising, tenacious Austin musicians have laid the foundation for what used to be called, in simpler times, a "scene." These days, you can call it whatever you want to.Verse 1: Shane Shane Bartell's favorite pop songs are the ones that make him think of "putting down the top of the VW Cabriolet in 75-degree weather and driving out to Mount Bonnell." Hard to believe he once sat in his room transcribing Morrissey's lyrics. Even stranger, he's one Radiohead fan who hasn't a bad word to say about Britney, Backstreet, or anyone else teaching the snack-food industry the meaning of mass consumption...."

Just Can't Enough
Music Story  July 18, 1997, by Ken Lieck
"...Eighties music that I find truly brilliant like `U Can't Touch This' we didn't even heah until 1992."

"...Funny, that hesitancy, now that Frost – dressed today in Nike high-tops, stylish Nantucket red pants, and a turquoise 1988 Aqua Fest T-shirt he found in his mother's attic – so fully embraces the genre. Since meeting Jones, this self-proclaimed bluesman has developed one of the most earnest radio-ready sounds in local music, an unabashed blend of pop, rock, and hip-hop..."

Cutting Vinyl With Fat Tracks
Music Story  October 3, 1997, by Andy Langer
"...Dalmasso's clients don't seem to mind all the shop talk or the messy shop itself, though; they're coming in to get their music ready for vinyl, after all, not to lounge around and play pool. And by all appearances, these are clients that believe in vinyl's functionality, unlike a corporation like Sony or artists like Pearl Jam or U2, who may press the occasional record solely for its novelty or as a promotional item they think will impress journalists or radio programmers..."
