Rock Hall to house "Austin City Limits" entire musical archives

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland has agreed to preserve 37 years of content from KLRU's Austin City Limits. Materials will be housed at the museum's library and archives, and will include more than 800 performances recorded live by KLRU from 1975 to the present day. “Austin City Limits uniquely represents more than three decades of some of modern music’s most significant artists and their performances — from iconic musicians to cutting-edge talent,” said Terry Stewart, president of the Rock and Roll Hall. “It’s one of the most significant archives that documents the American culture and Austin City Limits shares our mission of celebrating and interpreting popular music’s impact on our world.”
