Finally no intros
They finally got rid of the dude screaming about tacos of Texas at me every 3 minutes or less.

We heard you!
After reading the complaints about too many promos, we cut them by more than half. If you hear one at all, it’ll be at the beginning of a song only. KUTX is a public radio station so we do have to find ways to make what we do (play awesome music and support those artists) possible. Thanks for listening and supporting the Austin Music Experience. Enjoy the tunes!

Good music too much talk
The adds between all songs make it hard to listen to.

Blah Blah Blah
Now they talk at the front and back ends promoting their other podcasts. There's frequently good music here but they ruined a great thing when they started doing this. Unlike other radio stations, they also don't respond when you try to communicate with them.

Too much promotion of other podcasts
I had to unsubscribe. The radio station gets these from the artists, with the artist exchanging the rights for a bit of promotion, which I love. But it's beein coapted by the desire to pitch the "This Song" podcast. If you download these songs, and listen to several of them at once, as I do, you'll here a ton of advertising. Not very public radio-y if you ask me.

Good songs - too much promotion for other podcasts
I like the songs but the repetitive promotions for their other podcasts is just too much. The promotions rarely vary and distract from the song of the day. Sadly, after a few months I am unsubscribing.

Good music, go away ads!
I really like some of the music that is shared on this podcast, but it is frustrating that they backsell and frontsell other station podcasts. I liked it much more when there was just a song. I could even tolerate the intro to the song. Right now, I have to fast forward through the ads. I would appreciate less selling and more about the music.

Subscribe for archive, annoying intro added 5/1/18
Great song of the day archive until 5/1/2018 when KUTX added an extremely annoying minute plus of a talking intro that ruined the podcast. Still worth subscribing for an archive of hundreds of live and recorded songs from a wide and deep collection, but the usefulness ends 5/1.

Why add the intro at the start??? Just play the darn song like you were doing. It’s not about you. You’ve ruined this podcast w the intros. Unsubscribe.

More like song of the week, or month. Come on, man.

- Las Añez: “Como Si Fuera Yo” (feat. Lido Pimienta)The gate’s are open and Austin City Limits Music Festival 2022 is a go! And here just in time for Hispanic Heritage Month will be Latin-American music-melter Lido Pimienta. Born in Barranquilla, Colombia and raised in Ontario, this Toronto-based singer-songwriter has spent the past twelve years infusing flavors like Bullerengue and Cumbia with synth-driven art-pop. […]0 comments0
- Nation of Language: “From The Hill”Just before noon tomorrow, the gate’s’ll open up and Austin City Limits Music Festival 2022 will officially be underway. So if you plan on being out there bright and early, you might want to taste the Big Apple flavors of Brooklyn three-piece Nation of Language. Bassist Michael Sue-Poi and multi-instrumentalist Ian Richard Devaney founded Nation […]0 comments0
- Adrian Quesada’s Boleros Psicodélicos: “Ídolo” (feat. Angélica Garcia) (Live in Studio 1A)Grupo Fantasma. Brownout. Black Pumas. Glorietta. Ocote Soul Sounds. No matter what outfit you know him from the best, it’s adequately clear that Adrian Quesada has a near-unquenchable artistic appetite. And on the verge of his upcoming instrumental LP Jaguar Sound – the visionary’s second full-length for 2022 – Quesada and his Boleros Psicodélicos crew […]0 comments0

- Sammy Rae & The Friends: “If It All Goes South”It’s that rare sliver of the year where the weather is great the whole day through. And for me personally, that’s all the motivation I need to get out and enjoy live music, indoors or out. Even if the venue’s little more than a concrete box, as long as there’s airflow, I’m out there dancing. […]0 comments0
- The Bright Light Social Hour: “The Sheriff” (feat. Riders Against the Storm)KUTX turns ten next year. And two groups that’ve been glued to our hip the whole way through are The Bright Light Social Hour and Riders Against the Storm. They’re both must-hear Austin mainstays for a damn good reason; The Bright Light Social Hour continues to innovate a sweet-yet-sinister indie-psych sound while Riders Against the […]0 comments0
- Nolina: “Tourist”Decades after acts like Les Paul & Mary Ford, Captain & Tenille, and Ike & Tina had their heyday, seeing the phrase “husband-and-wife duo” can personally make me wince. Like we get it; you love each other, you’ve got great chemistry together, and you have a lot of emotions you need to dispense, but often, […]0 comments0
- Scone Cash Players: “Cold 40s”Contemporary curators for some of the best instrumental genres (namely jazz) seem to be fearless when it comes to digital hi-fi production. But thankfully, some of the finest facilitators of the funk-soul sound still prefer the “authentic” old school character of analogue techniques. Amongst them is Hammond organ extraordinaire Adam Scone. Scone and his magic […]0 comments0

- Purbayan Chatterjee & Rakesh Chaurasia: “Pahadi”If you’re a lover of traditional Indian music like I am, you won’t want to miss a certain concert in town this weekend. Just two weeks after the release of their seven-song full-length Saath Saath, Mumbai sitar maestro Purbayan Chatterjee and flautist Rakesh Chaurasia are set to perform 7PM this Saturday at Bates Recital Hall. […]0 comments0
- Glassreel: “Compromise”If you dig Belle and Sebastian’s brand of indie pop along with Mazzy Star’s style of alternative rock and have ever wondered what a lovechild of the two might sound like…let us introduce you to Glassreel. This Winnipeg project began as a duo between core songwriters Kelly Beaton and Trevor Graumann before rounding out a […]0 comments0
- Rental House: “Sunday Scaries”There are so many artists out there with names that are virtually un-Google-able. And if they’re from Austin, it’s not really helping their SEO. I mean just try searching “Hikes Austin”…you’re not gonna find music. Hell, even Spoon might’ve had some trouble in their earlier days. Which brings us to Rental House. No, it’s not […]0 comments0
- Chancy: “Angels, Darlings”I suspect that when many people of my generation hear the word “Chancy” out loud, they probably think of that egg loving Pokémon rather than the adjective. And while that demographic tends to have strong feelings about the “original 151”, collectors of indie-pop-rock ought to add Chancy to their musical Pokédex. This Dallas quintet only became Chancy after they […]0 comments0
- El Mató a un Policía Motorizado: “Yoni B”If you weren’t aware, today is the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month, which brings up an interesting discourse. Surface level listeners may experience a kind of culture shock when they hear the Spanish language outside of the subliminally-associated genres; if it’s not cumbia, reggaeton, or traditional Latin, it might sound “out of place”. And […]0 comments0
- Garrett T. Capps & NASA Country: “People Are Beautiful”Steve Miller Band. Jamiroquai. Kacey Musgraves. They’ve all written songs called “Space Cowboy”. And considering the continued popularity of those tunes, it’s safe to say that “space cowboy” is no longer a derogatory term for a shameless stoner. No, it’s something musicians want to wear on their sleeve. Which brings us to Garrett T. Capps […]0 comments0
- Shadow Work: “Warm Tones”There’s no doubt; Denver’s got a splendid music scene. Yet despite an artist multiplicity that gives Austin a run for its money, it’s rare to come across an act that captures several sounds of the city simultaneously. So if you want a calculated combo of post-hardcore guitar, jazz-injected percussion, and turbulent pride-of-punk bass riffs, sign […]0 comments0
- Nick Wallisch: “The Legend of El Champion”Nick Wallisch and his ever-growing cache of instruments have been a staple of the Live Music Capital for nearly a quarter century now, complete with crushing performances on drums, bass, piano, ukulele, and even penny whistle. That’s not to say Wallisch doesn’t play guitar as well (of course he does) but throughout recent memory he’s […]0 comments0
- Freedy Johnston: “The Power of Love”Connoisseurs of Americana (or “Americonnoisseurs” as I like to call them) can probably recognize the music of Freedy Johnston within a few notes. Back in the early ’90s Johnston became somewhat of a legend thanks to an unfettered dedication to his craft and a consistent, high quality output of tunes. As a matter of fact, […]0 comments0

- Wes Denzel: “Zodiac Killer”Astrology. It’s a one-of-a-kind litmus test in casual conversation; either people will scoff at you for believing that gobbledegook or chastise you for not knowing your ascendant. But if there’s one demographic who seems to get a unanimous pass, it’s lyricists. From Deep Purple’s “Maybe I’m a Leo” to Des’ree’s “What’s Your Sign?” and Nirvana’s […]0 comments0
- The Best Around: “Kissing Your Ass”0 comments0
- The Beaches: “Orpheus”Like the Jan Brady of national holidays, Labor Day is an oft-overlooked middle child between the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving. So, quick bit of “birthday” trivia; although it’s American-manufactured, some historians believe Labor Day may have been inspired by Toronto’s worker-centric parades held in 1882. Which means we ought to recognize our neighbors to […]0 comments0
