No other station captures the Austin Music Experience like KUTX 98.9. Our hosts have ~300 years on the radio combined—most of that in Austin. What you’ll hear on KUTX is a hand-curated, alternative music mix with a local twist. The music staff collaborates on picking the best songs, albums and artists from the great pool that makes Austin the “Live Music Capital of the World.”
So what’s our app do? Well, right now it does just one thing–stream our station; and it does it well. We’re using a high-quality and efficient codec, AAC+. It sounds great on all platforms, devices, radios, and even over 3G.
This is the first gen KUTX app. Roughly 98.9% of all requests for an app have said they just want an easy way to stream, so that’s where we’ve started. What’s next? We’ll have our:
- Song info and playlists
- Streams for KUT News and our Alt.Latino HD station
- Video performances from Studio 1A and the Cactus Café
- Podcasts / On Demand content
- And more
KUTX 98.9 Austin is a public radio station from The University of Texas. We broadcast from 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!
Great, simple, just needs stream quality update.
I'd prefer to keep to KUTX's app because, not only is it local, its connection has always been more stable than the NPR Music app's (which randomly cuts out on me for no perceptible reason). However, the streaming music quality has recently improved significantly on the NPR Music app, whereas this one seems to retain the older, lower-quality more "tinny"-sounding stream they used to also pull from. Update this one to feed from the same newer, clearer, fuller stream source & I'll be the happiest 5-star camper in town.
Great app, just needs "Now Playing" info
I would've given five stars if the app included the song/album/artist info of what's currently playing. The description says that'll be added soon, so I'm looking forward to that. Otherwise it's great. No unnecessary extras - just an easy way to stream KUTX.
Great simple app
Does what i would want a radio app to do - stream the radio
