KUT, Austin: Earbender Playlist of the Week #15

With a view towards measuring the residual effect of SXSW on local radio stations, KUT, Austin, is this week’s playlist of the week.  They just turned 50 (you know it’s old because it has three call letters) and are going stronger than any time since I started sending them records in the 80s.  It’s a great facility in the same building as KLRU and its world-famous Austin City Limits studio, and just short walk from student station KVRX.  You can bet that these places were humming during SXSW.  To learn more about KUT, please start your visit at their blog Texas Music Matters.
