101X signed on as "Austin's New Rock Alternative" on June 8, 1995.
The original airstaff included Sara Trexler, former KNNC (Austin's original commercial alternative radio outlet) personality Rachel Marisay, LA Lloyd Hocutt, Butthole Surfer Gibby Haynes, KNNC ex Ray Seggern, Austin Chronicle critic and Z-Rock Austin personality Andy Langer, and more.
101X veered into active rock territory at the height of alternative's TRL-friendly nu-metal period of the late-1990s. It has since returned to a broadly-appealing alternative presentation, closely associated with local Austin music and the more popular front of today's indie-rock.
