Beginning this week, Friday evenings on KZUM will feature a new roots rock program, “In the Garage” and an extended time slot for “HonkyTonk Heroes,” which has been keeping authentic country on the airwaves for over two years.

Jack Rabbit Slim, who has filled in numerous times for “HonkyTonk Heroes” and the former “That Rockabilly Show,” will take the reins of his own program from 10:30 p.m. to midnight every Friday. The new show, “In the Garage,” will be a high-revolution joyride through the great American countryside, complete with outlaw country, dirt road rock and cowboy metal with classic cruisers and hard left turns.

Along with this new addition, “HonkyTonk Heroes” will pick up an extra 30 minutes, expanding to 9-10:30 p.m. Hosted by Twyla Twang, the program has been in the 9-10 p.m. slot since it debuted in 2016.

These changes replace Carter Van Pelt’s Jamaican music program, “Eastern Standard Time,” which has been airing rebroadcasts since he relocated out of state in June. We do hope to have new programming from Van Pelt back on the air at some point in a new time slot. And if you or someone you know is interested in hosting a live program dedicated to Reggae, please email

We look forward to a Friday night lineup packed with roots music of all stripes! Take a look at the program schedule here. After the blues from 1-6 p.m., be sure to stay tuned in for:

  • 6-7:30 p.m. “Rockin’ Bones” with Rickabilly (rockabilly, rock n’ roll)
  • 7:30-9 p.m. “The Heyride” with The Wagonmaster (Western Swing & HonkyTonk)
  • 9-10:30 p.m. “HonkyTonk Heroes” with Twyla Twang (authentic country, classic and modern)
  • 10:30 p.m.-midnight “In the Garage” with Jack Rabbit Slim (outlaw/psyschobilly/roots rock)
