Local Music Month on KXT

KXT is proud to be home to North Texas artists — seven days a week, 365 days a year.

But for the next 31 days, we’re giving those artists an extra special shoutout by introducing Local Music Month. All through October, we’ll be highlighting the musicians that make the North Texas music scene so special by showcasing their work over-the-air and out in the community. Check out when we’ll be in your neck of the woods below, and stay tuned for even more exciting local music news on October 2.
