What the Folk?

Saturdays at 7pm CT on HPPR

A two hour show, theme based, drawing from a variety of Singer-songwriters, folk, pop, rock, world, jazz, etc.  There is a little bit of folk music in just about everything and you can connect the dots from Appalachian music to the Ramones:  Appalachian folk was an influence on the Louvin Brothers and the Everly Brothers;  The Everlys hugely influenced The Beatles and the Beach Boys;  The Beach Boys were a major influence on The Ramones...

It's time for HPPR's Spring Membership Campaign, and we're celebrating High Plains LANDSCAPES. If you haven't yet joined as a new member or renewed your membership, NOW IS THE TIME! Tune in and pledge to automatically enter the drawing for one of these four gorgeous photo prints from Garden City photographer Curtis Perez. We'll do the drawing on Monday  morning, so SUPPORT PUBLIC RADIO TODAY!

Thanks to Mike Fuller for stopping by his old stompin' ground at High Plains Public Radio, announcing the revival of his Songwriters in the Round series.  This is a chance to hear some great original songs and the stories behind them. Don't miss it! It'll be an unforgettable night of great music!

Thanks so much to Dave Smith for taking the time to talk to HPPR listeners during High Plains Morning this  

We believe HPPR listeners will love this show as much as we did when we selected it as a new program. We're all going to miss Folk Sampler, but please check out this new show by tuning in after What the Folk? on Saturday nights at 9pm CT. 

 

HPPR has a big announcement: we have a new show! After much deliberation and review, we are thrilled to introduce Ozark Highlands Radio, which will replace Folk Sampler at 9pm CT on Saturday night. 

This new program has a long history. It's a weekly radio program that features live music, jam sessions and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.

High Plains Public Radio is thrilled to announce TWO NEW MUSIC SHOWS highlighting the best in folk, roots, acoustic, Americana and more—and they're BOTH hosted by regional DJs, born and raised on the High Plains! Don't forget to tune in THIS SATURDAY and catch HPPR's exclusive new programs, Songbirds and What the Folk?
