Roy Orbison: Mystery Girl

Airs Sunday, May 25 at 6 p.m. Roy Orbison cared about two things in life more than anything else, music and family. Often those two combined, but Roy's sons never got the chance to share the stage with their dad. They did find a tape of a song that Roy never finished, and as a family Roy's boys completed the song as his baking band.     In this in-depth look at Roy’s 1989 posthumous comeback album, Mystery Girl, we'll here classic songs (“You Got It,” “She’s a Mystery to Me” and more), plus rare recording sessions, comments from his legendary collaborators, exclusive interviews with Roy’s sons (Wesley, Roy Kelton and Alex), Jeff Lynne and more.

Bob Wills: The King of Western Swing

Airs Sunday, May 18 at 6 p.m. I used to say that Bob Wills was the Elvis Presley of Western Swing. He was as charismatic a performer as ever stood on stage according to the people who have reported to me and by looking at his films." - Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel).     Imagine walking into a dance hall on a dusty Texas highway back in 1946. The room is packed wall to wall, and on the bandstand is a smiling, hollering fiddler leading 22 musicians who are working the dancers into a frenzy with hit after hit.

Unsung: The Stories of Women in Texas Music

Airs Friday, May 24 at 11 p.m.  KUT’s award winning Texas Music Matters unit revisits the story of Texas music by turning a spotlight on the women who’ve helped shape it –and who continue to keep Texas a vital voice on the world stage. Join us for Unsung: The Stories of Women in Texas Music. From the singing cowboys of depression era movies to the beer-drinkin’ good ol’ boys of modern country, Texas music has been wrapped in a Lone Star mythology that’s decidedly masculine. Yet from its earliest days, women like Cindy Walker wrote the songs the cowboys would sing. Some, like Janis Joplin, had to leave Texas to find acceptance on their own terms. Even now, the story of Texas music is only half told—glossing over the roles of pioneers like Big Mama Thornton or the struggles of modern movers and shakers from Ruthie Foster and Shawn Colvin to Sarah Jaffe and Girl in a Coma.
