‘Austin City Limits’ pilot episode

On October 17, 1974, Willie Nelson recorded the original pilot episode of “Austin City Limits. ” At the time no one could have predicted that the fledgling music show from Austin, Texas, would still be delivering great performances decades later.

To commemorate the 35th anniversary of the first taping, Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell declared Oct. 17 “Austin City Limits Day.”   The date recognized the show’s very first taping, which took place on Oct. 17, 1974 and featured the iconic Willie Nelson. To mark the honor KLRU and ACL will stream the original episode in its entirety for one month. You can watch the entire episode here.

And, on November 15, ACL will again present a very special episode with Willie Nelson, in a joint performance with Austin legends Asleep at the Wheel.
