    Ever since the 1974 pilot episode featuring Willie Nelson, Austin PBS affiliate KLRU’s Austin City Limits has used Douglas F. Jones’s Skin & Bones in its logotype. Currently in the midst of its 40th anniversary season, ACL is the longest-running music series in American television history.

    Apparently ACL’s old set at Communications Building B on the University of Texas at Austin campus had a sizeable hexagonal rug. (Since 2011, Austin City Limits has filmed their concerts at the Moody Theater in downtown Austin, Texas.)
