KUT riffs on that note, with great music programming such as John Aielli's Eklektikos, Horizontes, Folkways and other local and live music programs. KUT also broadcasts news from National Public Radio, BBC and Public Radio International. KUT's award-winning local news programming launched in 2002, joining KUT's Latino USA, which is heard on more than 100 stations nationwide. For more information, go to www.KUT.org
