New Austin Alt Station - 105.3 The Fringe - SwatMitchell
I just stumbled across this station this week and have been streaming it at the office. Alt variety, some going way back, similar to old KGSR (for those familiar), but much better and more breadth than I've been able to get with Pandora. It has relatively few commercials, check their song histor...

Tallest Recruiting Class Ever? - SwatMitchell
Just an observation as we wind down regarding the 2014 LSU Tiger Football recruiting class --> Only the kicker is under 6', and barely, at that. We typically see some "shorter" RBs and DBs, and even "WR/Athletes" - OK back to highlight videos and 2015 prospects and countdown to 08/30/14... ...

Repercussions For High Profile Athletes Leaving Louisiana - SwatMitchell

I have noticed that Southwest flies there. Destin is great, but a tough drive from Austin. How are the beaches in Panama City? Is there a decent place to stay right on the beach worth visiting for a few days this summer? Something within a 30-45 minute cab ride from the airport would be pre...
