What we do

Weekdays from 5-6pm CST we broadcast the news, views and issues of the other side of Texas live from KRFE AM 580 Lubbock, the studios where Buddy Holly became famous.

Each show aims to tell the rural side of Texas current events, giving voice to the other side of the state’s leading stories, while hearing from top-notch guests and laughing along with Lone Star-sized characters.

That’s what we do.

But here’s what we’d like you to do: If you enjoy our original and independent content, subscribe to the site, share podcasts and stories, and tell your friends that you hang out on the Other Side of Texas!

Thanks for listening and sharing!
