Music Story  January 21, 2016, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Up on the second-story rooftop of Sun Radio, one looks east to the antenna farm near Loop 360 in West Lake Hills, and southwest at the Hill Country gateway of Dripping Springs. From where Denver O'Neal stands, eight rows of solar panels lay out along the north side of our perch...."

TV on the Radio Squalls Austin City Limits
SXSW headliners warm up Monday with a PBS taping
DAILY Music  March 17, 2015, by Raoul Hernandez
"...TV on the Radio electrifying Austin City Limits Monday night brought to mind an obvious antecedent. A cliched, some might say quasi racist one, but when Living Colour tore out of New York in the Eighties, even then everyone tried to recall a black rock act as commercial or convincing..."

ACL Review: TV on the Radio
A black rock coalition for the ages
DAILY Music  October 11, 2015, by Thomas Fawcett
"...Playing opposite Bassnectar as the sun set on the Miller Lite stage, TV on the Radio opened with an ethereal ocean of electronic drone and tinkling percussion that slowly unfolded into a 10-minute take on 2003’s “Young Liars.” Such a slow-burning intro takes moxie, but the Brooklyn art rockers, performing here as a sextet, remain utterly unafraid...."

"...It's planned to house a new "Pop-Up Riverside Arts District," which was supposed to be up and running by Jan 1. Or at least that's what Sun Radio Founder Daryl O'Neal was told when his station entered into an agreement with Austin Creative Alliance and the Presidium Group last year...."

The Next Karate Kid
And hopefully the last. Swank is 17-year-old Julie Pierce, orphaned by the sudden death of her parents and sent to live with her grandmother, who finds the girl to be...
Film Review  September 16, 1994, by Marc Savlov
"...Karate Kid's moral tone has always been an admirable one -- self reliance and all that -- but here it's undercut with some remarkably silly scenes involving Miyagi's pals, the Buddhist monks (what they're doing living just outside Boston is another in a long series of Next Karate Kid oddities). They dance, they mug, and, in a scene strikingly reminiscent of a well-known mid-Eighties college radio hit, they go to the all night SuperLanes..."

The community love-in, crowning winners from industry-focused categories of the Austin Music Poll, rolled primo acceptance speeches from the likes of John Kunz, who collected his 35th straight Best Record Store award and noted Waterloo Records has helped music fans survive the Reagan years, both Bush administrations, and they'll be here to get us through Trump's reign..."

The Heartbreak Kid
Ben Stiller stars in this smart and winning remake of a 1972 Neil Simon-penned comedy about a man who falls in love with another woman on his honeymoon.
Film Review  October 5, 2007, by Marc Savlov
"...Before long, they're hitched and honeymooning in Cabo, where, to his dawning dismay, Eddie discovers why, in the long run, may not be such a bad idea after all. Lila sings along, boisterously and well, with every single song that comes on the radio, her marathon sex drive could have qualified her for a spot in the 1938 Munich Olympics (but leaves him a quivering wreck), and suddenly what seemed like a match made in heaven becomes, in the space of days, a hellish mistake..."

The Astronaut's Wife
You have to wonder if the appearance here of Samantha Eggar is a coincidence. In David Cronenberg's 1979 film The Brood, she tackled a similar motif, that of the genre-specific...
Film Review  September 3, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...Sure, all his limbs and vitals appear to be in working order, but his wife Jillian (Theron) knows something's not right. What that is remains maddeningly vague throughout the film, with statements that make little or no sense whatsoever about radio-wave-borne alien intelligences that are star-hopping their way across the galaxies to invade planet Earth..."

DAILY Music  April 23, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Throughout the event, which endured a slight rain delay on Saturday, the family circle appeared to remain unbroken. The omnipresent dancing guy who loans out glittery shawls to fellow festers boogied in front of the stage as usual, OSMF’s longtime media partner, Sun Radio, recorded performances and introduced bands, and the crown-wearing gentleman who hands out food backstage all proved present and accounted for..."

Kevin Curtin reverses his “awards are bullshit” stance
Music Column  March 1, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Antone's co-owner Will Bridges commemorated the blues joint's Best Music Venue to Play honors in revealing late club founder Clifford Antone's original vision: Make a place musicians want to play and the rest will follow. Sun Radio's A Hill Country Saturday host Kevin Connor collected his Best Radio Music Program plaque with a simple formula: "Play a good song, then think of another song that will sound good after it." Croy & the Boys singer Corey Baum lampooned gender stereotypes by effusively lauding AMA director and all-around renaissance lady Celeste Quesada, then stated, "Behind every great woman, there's a great man" and presented the Best Producer award to her husband Adrian Quesada...."

No Shortage of Greatness
Postmarks  March 20, 2017
"...Dear Editors, Thanks to The Austin Chronicle for including deejay Larry Monroe in the list of nominees for induction into the 2017 Austin Music Hall of Fame. All on the list were exceptional and to Jack Pott’s point ["HOF Hopefuls," Feedback, March 17], Austin will never run out of great musicians and music industry luminaries to include! Larry’s mission when he moved to Austin in 1978 was to put local music on the air, and thanks to KUT and Sun Radio he had the opportunity to do that for more than 30 years..."

Bill Carter
Music Review  February 25, 2016, by Jim Caligiuri
"...The ugly scene painted throughout "Bughouse in Pasadena" bristles with the appropriate amount of crazy, and "Missing Guru" references the local, still-at-large swami convicted of sex with children utilizing Charlie Sexton's electrified sitar. Tex-Mex trappings and Beach Boys harmonies bring a vivid contrast to "Moscow Girl," while "Solar Powered Radio" sings his craggy praise of Central Texas' rising superstar of the airwaves, Sun Radio, with a stomp and howl..."

Coheed and Cambria
The Color Before the Sun (300 Entertainment)
Music Story  November 5, 2015, by Richard Whittaker
"...Band visionary Claudio Sanchez called a cease-fire on Coheed and Cambria's seven-album sci-fi sprawl, and now dips into more emotionally grounded territory. Pop rock rather than space prog, The Color Before the Sun is akin to his beloved Rush's permanent wave goodbye to fantasy epics in favor of radio-friendly AOR..."

SXSW Film Unveils March Lineup

DAILY Screens  January 31, 2013, by Kimberley Jones
"...In the Documentary Spotlight field, Trinidad filmmaker PJ Raval returns with Before You Know It, his look at gay seniors (Raval also lensed The Bounceback); UT Radio/Television/Film department chair Paul Stekler reunites with Vote for Me collaborators Louis Alvarez, Andrew Kolker, and Peter Odabashian for Getting Back to Abnormal, a look at growing pains in post-Katrina New Orleans; and director Josh Johnson debuts ode to home video Rewind This! An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story is another project of interest – especially for anyone who inhaled Pamela Colloff’s recent, riveting two-part feature in Texas Monthly about Michael Morton’s wrongful conviction as a wife-killer; it’s directed by Al Reinert (For All Mankind), the Houston-based two-time Academy Award nominee...."

Into Thin Air
The already under way adventures of Austinites at the Dances Sun and Slam, and what they might mean for the local scene
Screens Story  January 21, 2005, by Spencer Parsons
"...That Bryant, the Zellners, the Duplasses, Poyser, and Vaughan all originally met through production courses in the Department of Radio-TV-Film at UT is not incidental, and in fact, with the exceptions of Luke Savisky and John Pierson, all of these filmmakers took classes there and cite their creative partnerships with other students as the most positive and enduring aspect of their experience with the program (and now Pierson's on the faculty). Similarly, Savisky says his ongoing connection with mentor Bill Lundberg of UT's TransMedia program, collaboration with bands like Stars of the Lid and the now-Chicago-based Poi Dog Pondering, as well as the support of a veritable who's who of Austin filmmakers and artists, have helped keep his own creative fires burning here for the past 20-odd years..."

"...Robert Ellis could easily become a star if, paradoxically, he doesn’t fall victim to his own multifaceted talent. A skilled songsmith capable of perfect hooks and sticking indelible phrasing, Ellis plies deep country twang, poignant grit, jazzy runs, and even expertly watered-down radio crossover hits..."
