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 app used it for a long time but every time I try to open the podcasts recently the app crashes

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.
