Episode 1327: Greg Beets & Richard Whymark, Authors of A Curious Mix of People: The Underground Scene of ’90s Austin

Hello friends! Greg Beets and Richard Whymark, authors of A Curious Mix of People: The Underground Scene of 90's Austin, a new book on University of Texas Press. This oral history of Austin's punk and DIY scene in the 90's covers the bands, the clubs, the radios stations, the zines, the labels, the TV shows and channels, and the fans of an amazing scene that spawned some of Austin's best music of the era like, Spoon, Sixteen Deluxe, Sincola and so many more. The book is available online, in Austin record stores and bookstores. Go to for more info on how to get it, video interviews and more. We have a great talk about the origins of the book, our experiences in the 90's, Austin Music Network, the G.G. Allin show in '92 at The Cavity, some of our favorite bands, shows and clubs, the magic of Sound Exchange and much more. I had a great time getting to know Greg and Richard. I'm sure you will too. You should check out this book. It's a great read. Let's get down!
