No other station captures the Austin Music Experience like KUTX 98.9 FM. What you'll hear is a hand-curated, alternative music mix with a local twist. Our hosts, aka DJ's, have more than 300 years on the radio combined--most of that in Austin. The music staff collaborates on picking the best songs, albums and artists from the great pool of talent that makes Austin the "Live Music Capital of the World," as well as from musicians beyond our backyard. You'll be sure to discover new favorites and enjoy familiar tunes with us.
This version of our app focuses on two things--a high-quality stream and the playlist. We've thrown a couple other things in there too, but this is what our listeners have asked for. We're providing an all digital, efficient stream using the AAC+ codec. It sounds great on all platforms, devices, radios and even over cellular. Tap in some headphones and have a listen.
It doesn't matter if you're in Austin, Texas, Minnesota, Alberta or Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, the KUTX app brings the Austin Music Experience to you in a clear, digital stream.
If you're also a fan of KUT, Austin’s NPR station, please download the individual version of that app as well. We've separated the apps so we can bring better and different features to each in the future.
KUTX 98.9 Austin is a public radio station from The University of Texas. We broadcast from the Moody College of Communication in the Belo Center for New Media on campus, bringing you the best of Austin music. We couldn’t do what we do without your continued support. Thanks for listening!
