I’d like to invite you to join me each Wednesday afternoon for three hours of coast to coast blues. A high octane blues show with an occasional mix of classic rock, folk, and zydeco. Each week I will feature an artist, and introduce you to their latest work. There will be interviews, giveaways, and live in studio performances. So call up your friends, and plan a road trip each Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 to 6:00 with “Highway Blues”.

Featured artist interviews and in-studio appearances run from 3:30-4 p.m. central unless otherwise noted.

Wednesday, Sept. 4 – The Keeshea Pratt Band

This weeks featured artist is a 9 piece band out of Houston, Texas. Lead by the award winning vocals of Keeshea Pratt. In January 2018, The Keeshea Pratt Band took the hardware home for first place in the Band Division at the IBC’s in Memphis, Tennessee. It was March of 2018 when I first featured her and the music from her new debut release “Believe”.  I’m looking forward to welcoming Keeshea Pratt live in studio today to talk about her upcoming show at the Zoo Bar tonight. As well as to find out what her and her band may have going on in the near future. So whether you like the blues, jazz, Southern rock, soul, gospel, or country. You are certainly going to enjoy yourself……. She Sings It All.

Wednesday, Sept. 11 – Final Pledge Drive of the Year!

There will be no featured artist this week as I will be putting full focus directly into the pledge drive today. Taking pledges from my listeners, and playing blues worthy of their support. Working together, we will keep  KZUM strong. And the blues alive and well.  You can call us at 402 474-5086 Ext. #1 to show your support for “Highway Blues”.

Wednesday, Sept. 18 – Jared’s Super Blues Party  

Today we are literally having us a Blues Party live on the radio. This weeks featured artist, Jared Alberico is well known in the area for his one man band “Jared’s Super Blues Party“. But today we are in for a real treat. Jared will be bringing a 3 piece band  in the studio featuring of course himself on guitar and vocals. Pablo Antonio on harmonica. And Fred Reddick on percussion. A great mix of local talent  I am proud to welcome to this weeks feature spot on “Highway Blues”.

Wednesday, September 25 – Boney Fields

This weeks featured artist lives to be on stage. He has brought his trumpet to life performing with some of the greats including  Lucky PetersonLuther Allison, James Cotton, & Buddy Guy. Raised in Chicago, Boney Fields now calls France home. And from there he will be joining me live to talk about his amazing career. As well as his newest release “Bump City”. Trust me people. If there’s a feature you should mark on your calendar, and plan for. This is the one. Here’s a man that can truly blow his own horn. And make everyone grateful that he did.
