Notably Texan

Weekdays, Noon to 3pm, and Saturdays, 7-Midnight

With the lofty mandate to curate the culture of Texas music, Notably Texan host Matt Meinke scours the state's singers and songwriters, stars or not, and hand-selects the purest cuts of well-marbled entertainment for your daily listening pleasure. The tempo, the style, the instrumentation, the genre - it doesn't matter. The rules are simple - the songs need to have a Texas connection. Rock, rap, country, reggae, electronica, dub step, house, R&B - If the music helps to build an audio tapestry worthy of the Lone Star State, it's got a shot on Notably Texan.

You can also email links to SoundCloud or other hosted downloads that you have created directly to Matt himself.
