The Frank and Woody Show in Studio 2A Thursday and HoCo Fest Sunday




Tune in for an interview and performance from reunited 70's Tucson favorites The Frank and Woody Show this Thursday around 3:30pm on The Home Stretch.


KXCI Presents! them and a slew of local and touring acts for the fourth night of HOCO Fest, Sunday, September 1st, Hotel Congress closes the party in style with a nightlong Tucson music stage. Sunday's schedule.

As is tradition at HOCO, we celebrate Tucson’s musical history, this year we are just tickled to have The Frank and Woody show headline the outdoor Tucson stage.  During the heyday of the beer soaked, marijuana hazed, golden age of the renegade Tucson music scene, they were one of the most popular acts. Country rock dominated the Tucson club scene and some of Tucson’s most talented musicians and songwriters emerged from this, many garnering national attention. No one was more beloved, raunchy and raucous than The Frank and Woody Show- and that’s saying somethin’.  This is their first performance in seven years and they are rarin’ to go. Frank Manhardt and Woody Janda are bringing together the legendary band for what will be a great, “can’t miss” event.

PotLuck Audio Conference right her in Tucson Friday and Saturday

KXCI is happy to help sponsor the PotLuck Audio Conference 2013 this Friday and Saturday, August 2 and 3rd at the Hilton El Conquistador Resort.

It's a real treat to have this national audio event right here in Tucson. PotLuckCon is where recording engineers, inventors, and enthusiasts all come together as a community to connect and share ideas.  Our panels are a divergent mix of people who have experience in all levels of recording  and who willingly share their unique point of view. Throughout the weekend, you will have access to engineers and producers from all over the world and get a chance to personally ask them questions you may have. We also have a top-notch gear expo featuring over 40 booths of familiar and not-so-familiar brands and their designers. You will not only get to demo some of the gear you read about, but also get to meet the minds behind it and find out what drives them to make their particular hardware or software. 

Attend the whole conference or just stop by for a day pass. Click here for the full schedule.
