50 Over 50: Oral History of Austin’s Live Music Scene

An Oral History of Austin’s Live Music Scene

This year SouthPop has finally begun the process of chronicling Austin’s Live Music History from the 1950s through today in an oral history project. So far we have 20+ interviews with some of Austin’s most influential artists, musicians, producers, and club owners, in hopes of capturing and sharing that special something that makes Austin the Live Music Capital of the World. Below are full audio of our interviews, in a compressed format. If you’re interested in much higher quality audio files, please contact SouthPop at 512-440-8318 or info@southpop.org.
