KLRU is excited to announce a new addition to KLRU Q’s 11pm music block, Hardly Sound. The documentary series focuses on Texas underground music and artists but goes beyond the recording studio to tell the story of the band members with insight into the creative process.

Before stations were broadcasting around the clock they were required to “sign off” before ending the broadcast day. These were often patriotic images put to the music of the Star Spangled Banner. This KLRN/KLRU sign-off is no exception and may be a trip down memory lane for many KLRU fans. This analog sign-off was aired one last time two years ago when we shut off our analog tower for good to complete our digital transition.
