As we near the end of our 2020 fiscal year, we ask you for a donation to support your community radio station. Your contribution will not only ensure that KZUM can still provide vital resources and awesome music but will also help to secure a very important grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Every year at KZUM, we dedicate Labor Day Weekend to celebrating the blues. Starting at 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 4, KZUM will feature 84 straight hours of the blues. You can see the schedule here.
Radio Free America, the provider of KZUM's program archive, unfortunately ceased operations on August 15, 2020. That means that our Program Archive will be absent from the website, indefinitely.
KZUM was part of a national conversation with dozens of other community radio stations, facilitated by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters. The goal was to seek out roadblocks, create support and define a path toward a more equitable industry. The result was the formation of a nationwide cohort of stations who are committing to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as organizational priorities. On July 16, 2020, the KZUM Board of Directors unanimously voted to join this important cohort.

The Jazz in June concert originally scheduled for June 2, 2020 has been postponed until July 7.
Thanks to your generous support over the last week, KZUM has already raised over $26,000! This support has far exceeded our expectations. All of the money we raise will be turned in on Give To Lincoln Day, May 28. You can help us between now and then by calling in your donation at 402-474-5086 ext. 1 or by donating, online, here. Please leave a comment when donating online and let us know which show(s) are your favorite!
Long time KZUM Programmer, Scott Colborn, passed away on March 30, leaving a hole in the hearts of his family, friends and devoted fans. Scott was the host of the Saturday morning talk show Exploring Unexplained Phenomenon, which would have celebrated 36 years on air in October. Having been with KZUM since 1984, his passing will be felt deeply in our organization.
