Tonight, SXSW kicks off early with Austin Chronicle‘s Austin Music Awards at ACL Live. The 36th year of the annual celebration of all things Austin music, tonight features the heavy hitting of John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Alejandro Escovedo, The Black Angels, and many more. To whet your appetite, earlier today I got the chance to talk by phone with AC Music Editor & AMA booker Raoul Hernandez to talk about the history of the show & what to expect for KOOP Radio‘s What’s New Radio Show. Stream my interview, Rag Radio’s interview that I helped with, & check the links for more information. Thanks!
