KLUV is not streamed on the web / but I will ask if I can podcast it at a later date.

KLUV recording photos

These photos were taken in a small recording studio - one that's usually used by the Texas State Network for interviews. It presented interesting challenges for photo-taking... but this is what we got! These were taken on December 12th.

New Podcast available

Recorded in front of a studio audience February 2003
in honor of it's 70th anniversary we present:

Before there was Tanto. Before the masked rider of the plains (as we know him) became emblazoned in the history and lexicon of the old West. There was a simple story about a swashbuckling solo avenger who laughed in the face of danger on the savage frontier.
