Saturday Nights are Filled with Music at KBDI-12

DENVER – August 3, 2009 – With a slight change in scheduling, KBDI Channel 12 has transformed Saturday nights into an amazing display of musical talent! 

Austin City Limits will move from its original Friday-night spot to Saturday nights, directly preceding Legends & Lyrics providing one of the best one-two musical punches in television. Viewers can see nearly non-stop music every Saturday from 9 p.m. until 4 a.m.!  Get your weekly fix of music on the newly-improved Saturday lineup at KBDI-12. 

Austin City Limits will now air Saturday nights at 9 p.m., 12 midnight and once more at 2 a.m.  Upcoming performers include Lyle Lovett (Aug. 22), My Morning Jacket (Aug. 29) and The Dixie Chicks (Sept. 5).

Legends & Lyrics will air Saturday nights at 10 p.m., 1 a.m. and 3 a.m.  Upcoming performers include Kris Kristofferson, Patty Griffin and Randy Owen (Aug. 22), Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx and 3 Doors Down (Aug. 29) and Leigh Nash from Sixpence None the Richer, Mindy Smith and Reggie Hamm (Sept. 5).  

For over 30 years Austin City Limits has had one goal: to present live music to audiences across the world.  This award-winning series highlights all types of music ranging from rhythm and blues to rock, jazz, and alternative music.  Inspired by the booming music scene in Austin, TX, Austin City Limits consistently draws in some of the best musical talent in the world.  While other televised concert shows have faded out over the years, Austin City Limits continues to set the standards for nationally televised performances. 

Legends & Lyrics is a wonderful musical program focusing on the unique art of songwriting.  The show covers all genres of music showcasing famous recording artists who write the majority of their own songs joined by highly talented hit-song poets who the artists sometimes call on to write a song.  Together, the artists and poets share stories of song creation and perform hit songs and new releases.  Enjoy the beautiful celebration of songwriting with exclusive interviews with each artist/ song poet and learn about hot up-and-coming stars in the artist/song poet scene. 

A full schedule of air times for all of the programs can be found at www.KBDI.org.
