KVRX 91.7 FM stands alone in the "Live Music Capital of the World" as the consummate source for indie and underrepresented music. The UT student-produced programming airs on the FM dial between 7 p.m. and 9 a.m. during the week and between 10 p.m. and 9 a.m. on weekends. KVRX streams live over the Internet 24/7 at KVRX.org.
The KVRX mission is to play music you won’t hear anywhere else, evident by their slogan, "None of the hits, all of the time". KVRX is a true alternative station and consequently boasts a wide array of listeners near and far. KVRX maintains a substantial "new music bin" including hip-hop, blues, jazz, folk, country, techno and metal genres. Listeners enjoy at least five different genres and two Texas bands each hour. Most recently, The Austin Chronicle recognized KVRX’s programming as the Best in Austin and "Local Live" as the third Best Music Program and second Best Music TV Series.
KVRX averages 20,297 weekly student listeners and 55,000 total weekly listeners.
