When you tune in to Locals Only on KXCI, the intimate banter among band members almost makes you feel like you're in Studio 2A with them. Host Matt Milner has a quiet magic; he gets artists to effuse about their music without ever really making his presence felt. The program does its part to represent the local music scene; it highlights artists from many genres, from surf rockers the Boogie Nazis to Latin-pop pair Duo Libre. With raw and charming live performances, the program helps its audience understand the allure of local music. And by choosing musicians with upcoming performances, the program encourages listeners to investigate local music on their own, which does Tucson's musicians and venues a great service.
