Throughout the month of February, High Plains Public Radio & HPPR Connect will celebrate Black History Month with special programming that amplifies Black voices and perspectives. From profiles of cultural icons to a showcase of musical talent, don’t miss these unique stories, podcasts, and features that honor the contributions of Black thought leaders throughout time.

HPPR welcomed Beth Duke into the studio–masked up and distanced for safety–to share some exciting news about some upcoming events in downtown Amarillo, thanks to Center City. She joined me on High Plains Morning to remind music lovers of the Texas Panhandle that Jazztober starts TONIGHT and runs from 6:00-7:30 pm. The Martinis kick off the series, but it also features Austin Brazille, Esquire Jazz Band, and Ruth Ellen Lynch in coming weeks.

Thanks so much to Daniel Margolis, contributing editor at Downbeat Magazine, for chatting with High Plains Morning today. He shared details about two informative articles he just released regarding the pandemically-retooled 2020 Record Store Day, the annual celebration of the "culture of the independently-owned record store.  You can check out his pieces on the links below, which include a rundown of what's coming out and when.

Who knew so many of the good people of Garden City would venture out on a Sunday night for a live jazz concert? 

HPPR would like to thank our honored guests, The Bob Bowman Trio from Kansas City, for their phenomenal concert on  March 6th. It was broadcast live on air from our Garden City studio in front of a live audience.
