WOXY’s SXSW 2008 Plans

Hey, I’m going to be the guest blogger on WOXY’s special Blogger Hour program next Tuesday at 7pm. TUNE IN. It’s live! I’m picking the playlist, MOO HOO HA HA!

Shiv revealed WOXY’s plans for 2008. No WOXY day show, although they are sponsoring the Domino evening SXSW show and are doing a ton of broadcasts with bands. Details:

Mike & I decided to discuss our SXSW plans on the air this afternoon. We still have a few session that are being finalized and at least one event we can’t publicize until next week, but we did go ahead and make an alphabetical announcement of who would be doing Lounge Acts with us in Austin. An official announcement will be on the way by next week!
