The new rhythm of life for local musicians

It’s no secret that the outbreak of COVID-19 has taken a toll on the local music scene. Beloved venues have closed their doors, social distancing measures have limited audience engagement, and performers have had to deal with the loss of a crucial aspect of their lives. With no other choice, Lincoln musicians have spent the past 10 months applying their creativity to finding new ways to perform, rehearse, and interact with the community.

A New KZUM Program Archive is now available! This archive allows you to listen to KZUM programs for 2 weeks after they first air on 89.3 KZUM - In their entirety. If you miss one of your favorite shows or perhaps you just want to revisit one you've already heard, now you can enjoy it with the new ARCHIVE!

KZUM Fall Fund Drive begins at Midnight, Sept. 10 through Sept. 16

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.

KZUM Art Beat | Andrea Williams

Since a young age, creating has been a huge part of Williams’ life. Having her work entered into a competition hosted by a national children’s magazine and winning third place kind of sealed the deal. From then on, Williams entered her work in competitions through middle and high school. She has always loved to draw and lose herself in the creative process, acrylic painting has become a new love.
