ID Music Tonight: Monsoon Mellows and Cosmic Metal

ID-Music_Real-News2

The #1 New Age radio broadcast in the Big Bend of Far West Texas returns to the airwaves tonight from 9-11pm CST — that’s right now — with monsoon conjuring music from Valet, Aerial Jungle, Softest and J.D. Emmanuel. In the second hour we’ll be exploring the outer limits of “blackened New Age” with music from Agalloch and Ash Borer, the latter hot off their Marfa debut to a confused crowd at Padre’s last week.

This is happening now. If you’re out here in Far West Texas tune in from 9-11p (CST)  at KRTS 93.5 FM in Marfa, KRTP 91.7 FM in Alpine and KDKY 91.5 FM in Marathon. You can also stream the show live at marfapublicradio.org.
