Music Director

 

Austin got his start in radio in February of 1995 from a “mysterious stranger” who recommended him to then 97.5 KWVS-The Waves “Classic Rock.” He began working the overnight shift and quickly moved to mid-days. In May 1995, 97.5 changed formats to country and Austin was in Heaven as he played the first song! Do you know what it was? Under the guidance of Dr. Bruce Nelson Stratton, Austin learned the ins and outs of production, programming, management, music, and public service. Austin is the station’s music programmer and his keen sense of musical trends are what give KFTX that perfect blend of music. His midday show is full of information, fun and the popular lunch time trivia contest always keeps listeners on their toes!

Eric Church Badly Cuts His Finger



Eric Church Badly Cuts His Finger
When Eric Church opened for GeorgeStraita few months ago the night before he severely cut his finger getting a toy out for his 2-year-old. It had a wire tie, so he took a super sharp pocket knife and in cutting the tie the blade went into his finger to the bone. Rather than go to emergency, his father-in-law had Eric dip his finger into kerosene for an hour then he super-glued it back together.
