101X. That’s how Austin has said “Alternative” since 1995. The music has changed; the attitude hasn't: when cutting edge alternative rock arrives in Austin's ears, it does so on 101X--curated by a staff that has spent a cumulative century-plus in our town, with its ears peeled for what's "next." Jason and Deb start each day with comedy. After that, it's alt-rock all day, with music guides who know their way around the latest sounds and Austin, too. 101X is tirelessly supportive of our legendary local scene. Austinites get to experience that first-hand through our Homegrown Live concert series; listeners nationwide can do the same through Homegrown, the radio show, airing each Sunday night. And Homegrown is one of several specialty programs skirting the edge of the alternative mainstream. Punk rock? Complete Control Radio. British Music? UKTX. Smart-pop & downtempo electronica? Chillville. And 101X is your backstage pass to world-famous Austin music fests from SXSW to ACL and more. It's like being here! 101X. Alternative Austin.

Best way to listen to home when abroad


Don't live at home much anymore. But love that I can tune in and at least listen like I'm cruising through traffic on mopac, or walking through zilker, or heading DT, or chilling at the lake. Definitely the cure for homesickness.

Love the station


If we have to listen to music instead of local commercial can we have more variety ? I'd rather hear the local commercials.

It does what it does well, but that's not much


I imagine that the station didn't ask Triton to do much here, so it's probably not fair to blame the app developers for this. When you set you sights low, and you hit the bullseye, you still end up with mediocrity.

This app will allow you to live stream the station, to see a very limited song history, and to share or purchase the songs or see a brief profile of the artists. That's it - period.

There is ZERO else here. Nothing about the station, or about the people working there (who you almost never hear on air) IDK much else about this station itself as this isn't a station I get from my home in Wimberley.

The very limited things it does, it does cleanly, reliably and without any bugs that I found.

It's too bad that I am now deleting this app as a waste of space as I otherwise love this station, I just have several other general radio apps (like 5150radio) I can program it into to listen to that will do the same things.
