We make the trip from Austin to Dallas and Fort Worth a lot, and that stretch of IH-35 can sure seem desolate. We point out landmarks on the way to the kids, like the gold dome at Baylor in Waco, and Papa Joe's in Lorena, site of the infamous Billy Joe Shaver incident. Schoepf's BBQ in Belton is my top choice for road chow, though George's Bar in Waco is interesting too, and Brahm's in Hillsboro is a good snack stop. A bunch of the landmarks that you need to know about to kill the boredom on this common drive for Austinites is HERE - what are some that I or they missed?
Chris Mosser takes the KVET reins every weekday afternoon from 3pm to 7pm! Chris was born and raised in Lubbock, and got his radio start there at KRLB "FM-99" and later at the legendary Hub City rock station, 94.5 FMX. Chris was also playing bass guitar for a heavy metal band called Human at that time, and relocated with the band to Austin in 1993. He has been a staple of the Austin radio and live music scene ever since, and is thus in hog heaven. Chris has arguably played more Austin and Texas music on Austin's radio waves than any other radio dude in town!
When he's not sleeping or yapping on the radio, Chris enjoys spending time with his beautiful family, exploring Austin's restaurants, movie theaters and live music venues, building stuff (badly), experimenting with new and exotic cocktail recipes, cooking competition-grade Texas chili and setting things on fire in his backyard.
