Go-arounds happen more often than you might realize.  Sometimes it's because the aircraft that landed first didn't clear the runway fast enough or a departing flight didn't start its takeoff roll fast enough.  In your case, the pilots of your flight were not happy with the final approach to the runway and decided to go around and try again.  I sent you a PM regarding the audio you're looking for.

Aborted landing in Dallas, first i've ever experienced, and now I am immensely curious to hear the audio. Ive tried searching but I have no idea what tower or frequency to search for.

(only one scanner at LBB, so did the best I could to keep the tx's for just the incident)

LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Passengers described a frightening situation aboard a flight that aborted a takeoff in Lubbock on Thursday evening.

The Southwest plane, a Boeing 737 bound for Las Vegas, stopped its takeoff at around 6 p.m.

The airline tells us the crew suspected an engine issue. Lubbock Fire Rescue responded and confirmed a fire in an engine; crews worked to put it out.

The plane returned to the gate nearly an hour later under its own power. That’s when passengers were finally able to get off the plane.  No one was hurt.

We spoke to some passengers who credit the flight crew for getting them through a scary situation.

Passenger Jennifer Barbee said, “They made us feel very safe and did an amazing job because we were literally coming offf the groud to the air when it happened. I just feel very lucky that nothing happened. A lot of people were scared, but we all agreed that they handed it so well. The pilots kept us safe because if we were to have gone up into the air, I dont know what wouldve happened.

The Lubbock airport closed a runway for cleaning and inspection.

11:58ET heard a better sounding tower transmission come on, and a controller said, "I got it, Nate," as if handing over from a backup or mobile station to the main. Other transmitters were struggling to hear the tower for the last 40+ minutes, even though everyone else sounded clear.

An 4.8 magnitude earthquake at around 10:19AM eastern time rumbled across the northeastern United States today.  It was centered in New Jersey and felt from Albany NY down to Washington DC.  KEWR stopped departures and arrivals for a short time and the tower controllers were moved to an alternate site.  Because of this a number of flights had to divert to alternates...

Since this morning's 4.1 Earthquake, KEWR has had a groundstop. Tower was unsure if Ground was up, or offline. AAY1396 around 11:20 local could not raise the tower on approach and had to go around. Tower has sounded terrible and ground cars trying to raise. Sounds like operations may be resuming.
