“Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter and former frontman of The Ugly Americans and The Scabs, Bob Schneider is one of the most-celebrated musicians in the live music capital. Combining diverse styles, Schneider’s music spans genres, blending elements of folk, rock, rap, funk, bluegrass, reggae and country with the more traditional singer/songwriter aesthetic. In short, FRUNK.

Schneider draws inspiration from the ’70s with a modern twist. His lyrics, both playful and powerful, tackle tough subjects about alienation, addiction, and lost romance.

Schneider has won more than 59 Austin Music Awards including Best Album, Best Songwriter, Best Musician, and Best Male Vocals making him the most decorated artist in Austin music history.

Schneider’s fan base reaches far beyond the city limits of Austin. He started gaining national recognition with his major-label debut for Universal Records, Lonelyland. A fiercely-independent artist, Schneider started his own label, Shockorama Records, which allows him the freedom to make the music his fans love, on his own terms.

Schneider has released more than a dozen albums (with a new one on the way). He has also written over 1,000 songs, is a published author and an avid painter and collage artist. He does all this while playing over a hundred shows a year and he doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.”

Part of Sun Radio’s mission is to support local musicians

Texas Radio Live is a continuation of Larry Monroe’s program, Texas Radio. When Monroe moved to Austin in 1977, his goal was to put Austin music on the radio in the form of records, live performances, and interviews. Soon after he joined KUT in 1981, he started a program called Texas Music, which was soon called Texas Radio. Texas Radio primarily spotlighted the recordings of Texas musicians, but occasionally featured a live guest or broadcast interviews taped by others. Monroe joined Sun Radio in 2011 and brought his programs, Blue Monday and Phil Music, with him, and also desired to bring back his Texas Radio program. Sun Radio founder, Daryl O’Neal responded to this by suggesting they create a live version of it. O’Neal then pitched the idea to Rob Lippincott, owner of Guero’s Taco Bar, who was thrilled at the idea of having Larry Monroe doing a program from Guero’s. Monroe then solicited the help of David Arnsberger… and Texas Radio Live was re-born! Texas Radio Live continues today after Monroe’s untimely death in January 2014.

The Sun Radio Recharge program has enabled Sun Radio to provide financial relief to local musicians through deferring the costs of electricity bills and paying artists to perform.
