KXT 91.7 – another music rich public radio station

March 11, 2012

The new public radio station, KXT – 91.7, although not Jazz-driven station, is an incredible selection of acoustic, alt-country, indie rock, alternative and world music, hand-picked just for you – the real music fan. Definitely some cross-over to the world of Jazz and Denton-based musicians.

History
KERA was founded by local leaders in 1957 based on core public service and education principles much like those subsequently reflected in the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 that founded a national public broadcasting service:
Public broadcasting is fundamentally a local institution, rooted in the social, educational and cultural fabric of hundreds of communities across the country.
The programs and services of public broadcasting must be available to all Americans, regardless of their location or ability to pay.
Lifelong education is the founding goal of public broadcasting and must be preserved.
The noncommercial character of public broadcasting, as well as its editorial integrity and independence, are critical to its public service mission.

  1. I think if you write about a station, you need to write about it warts and all. As this article points out,
    http://thirdestatesundayreview.blogspot.com/2012/03/would-you-pay-to-support-sexism-ava-and.html

    and as any listen to KXT points out, they play, at most, two women an hour. Mainly, it’s one woman an hour. That’s disgusting and it’s sexist. And that needs to be noted because we’re not in high school at a pep rally. Critical thinking is required. KXT needs to be pressured to address their sexist playlists.

  2. Thank you for your input, Jimmy. My blog is more about Denton Jazz and is as inclusive as I can make it. Although KXT public radio is on the fringe of the mission of Denton Jazz Chronicles, I felt compelled to include the station information. Since you have added insight to the story you mentioned, my readers can follow your link to learn more. Thanks again.

  3. At long last! The best article. I have numerous friends who could actually need
    this insight. Is it fine if I share it to them?.

  4. You are very welcome to. All the best KEM
