KXT-FM hits the airwaves at 7 a.m. Central Time, in Dallas today. 91.7 on the FM band.
KXT is a sister station to public broadcasting KERA-FM, 90.1. In the past 20 years KERA’s outstanding music programming slowly gave way to talk and news — good talk and great news, but the music suffered.
In response to member requests, North Texas Public Broadcasting decided to launch a separate station for music.
KXT is a new radio station found at 91.7 FM in North Texas, and at kxt.org worldwide. It’s an incredible selection of acoustic, alt-country, indie rock, alternative and world music, hand-picked just for you – the real music fan.
KXT features between 9 and 11 hours of local programming each weekday, bringing you an eclectic variety of artists and genres, including a number of performers from North Texas and elsewhere in the Lone Star State.
Gini Mascorro will host the KXT Morning Show, Monday through Friday from 7 to 11 a.m. Joe Kozera will take listeners home weekdays with the KXT Afternoon Show from 3-6pm and the KXT Evening Show from 6-8pm.
90.1 at Night with host Paul Slavens, which appeared on KERA-FM for a number of years, has moved to KXT and is now known as The Paul Slavens Show.
KXT should be a boon to Texas music, to live music, and to music generally.
Dallas still lacks serious rock and roll broadcasting, being mostly a city in the shadow of Clear Channel music censorship. One step at a time. KXT is a great big step. Or maybe more accurately, KXT is a great, big step.
