With March upon us, several program schedule changes are taking place during the first week of the month on KZUM.
“Impressions” ending Feb. 27
First, we’d like to sincerely thank Johnny G., host of the jazz program, “Impressions,” on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m., for his 18 dedicated years to KZUM both on the air and behind the scenes. Before taking his encyclopedic knowledge of jazz to “Impressions” several years ago, Johnny hosted the longtime world music program, “Turtle Island,” every Friday morning. Over the years, he has served on KZUM’s board of directors, including a stint as treasurer, and has continued to volunteer his technical expertise and organizational skills off the mic.
Feb. 27 was the final edition of “Impressions” and we wish Johnny G. and his family the best in all their new adventures!
“The Hot House” – Tuesdays, 7-9 p.m.
We’re pleased that great jazz will continue coming your way on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. Beginning on March 6, Gal Dog will move “The Hot House” to the former “Impressions” slot. Her program, specializing in mid-century jazz and vintage pop, has aired on Mondays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. since the summer of 2016.
“Hear Nebraska FM” – Mondays, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
After a few years in the 8-10 p.m. time slot on Mondays, KZUM’s all-local music program, “Hear Nebraska FM,” hosted by Andrew Stellmon, will bump up to occupy the 6:30-8:30 p.m. time slot on the same day, beginning on March 5.
“The Rumble” – Mondays, 8:30-10 p.m.
Following a year or so on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 p.m., Ben Don and “The Rumble” will make the jump to Mondays, 8:30-10 p.m., sandwiched between “Hear Nebraska FM” and “Everything’s Gone Green. The new evening slot will begin on March 5.
“Organized Sound” – Wednesdays, 1-3 p.m.
For about a year and a half, host Aaron Cather has brought his vast musical knowledge to the variety program, “Late Night Final,” every Thursday night/Friday morning from midnight to 2 a.m. He’s set to move to the slot previously occupied by “The Rumble,” on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 p.m. And since we’ll be welcoming Aaron to the daylight, the old name just doesn’t fit anymore. Instead, he’ll host a similar program known as “Organized Sound,” beginning March 7.
The syndicated live Americana program, “Music City Roots,” will occupy the former “Late Night Final” slot for a month or so. Beginning around the end of March, we’ll welcome a brand new metal program! Stay tuned for more details.
