Airport rock

Tuesday, February 12, 2019 by Tai Moses

Airports can be stressful, they can be hectic, they can be tedious – but they aren’t usually melodious. Until now. Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and public radio station KUTX 98.9 FM have teamed up to present the Austin Music Experience, now flooding the airwaves of the Barbara Jordan terminal with music – not just any music, but tunes by local Austin artists. ABIA passengers will be serenaded by a live-streamed playlist hand-selected by KUTX and featuring a wide variety of local music from Texas swing, country and rock to pop and hip-hop. KUTX program director Matt Reilly said, “KUTX is thrilled to partner with our friends at Austin-Bergstrom to spread the gospel of Austin music. Introducing the Austin Music Experience to a global audience will further strengthen this cultural and economic pillar of our city.” If you hear something you like while you’re waiting for your bags and you want to dig deeper, the playlist is on KUTX.
