Just learned that KUT’s long-time DJ, John Aielli, has had a heart attack. Apparently it’s mild as he is expected to return to work soon.
Why make a note about Aielli? I don’t know him, but have listened to his program for years. Quite simply Aielli is a community builder. If you are new to Austin and are fortunate enough to tune in, Aielli will connect you to your place. He’s positive and a strong supporter of local arts, music, gardening, and things Austin (like Barton Springs).
John, I wish you good health.
