Welcome to Friends of Austin City Limits

This year marks KLRU’s 40th Anniversary Season of Austin City Limits; America's longest running live music performance program on television and recipient of the rare Institutional Peabody Award for excellence and outstanding achievement.

The Season 40 taping season is sure to have something for every live music fan.  In lining up talent for this very special year, ACL Executive Producer, Terry Lickona, is committed to bringing back the best of the past and present, while staying true to the spirit of discovering new and up and coming talent of the future.

Each taping season generally runs from March to October, featuring approximately 18-20 live performances before an intimate crowd. All performances of Austin City Limits air on PBS stations nationwide beginning in October through February of the following year.

KLRU provides access to these live performances and other exclusive invitations through the Friends of Austin City Limits program as a thank you for your annual membership donation to KLRU.  Please join us by becoming a member today, and start your own amazing Austin City Limits experiences, all while benefiting local public television and KLRU’s impact in the community.
