The KXT Local Show is a weekly radio program featuring a full hour of local music, curated and hosted by KXT’s Nilufer Arsala. Tune in every Thursday from 7-8pm to hear new and classic tunes from North Texas artists spanning a broad mix of genres, including hip hop, Latin, rock, blues, jazz, folk and R&B.
This week on the KXT Local Show, we heard new music from Ariel + The Culture, The Plum Boys, Zeke Forever, Matthew & The Arrogant Sea, Abbreviations, and Asher Roberts feat. Gillian Rhys. We also heard “Bye”, the super banger from Tears that made its Local Show debut last week, and “Dramatic” from Mitchell Ferguson and Drugstore Cowboy. Check out the full playlist below this week’s show highlights!

Ariel & The Culture
Jason ‘Ariel’ Bobadilla is the force behind Ariel + The Culture. Bobadilla is a first-generation Mexican-American artist from Dallas. Here’s more on how a COVID love story inspired an earlier song, “Dame Tu Amor.” His music blends English and Spanish with Indie and R&B/Hip-Hop. His bio says that he “makes music that even your abuelita would like,” and he’s right.
His new song is called “No Puedo” and it officially drops today!
Mitchell Ferguson & Drusgstore Cowboy
Dallas-based pop artist Tears made her Local Show debut last week. The song is guaranteed to make you move and WOWZA WHAT A VIDEO!
