On Saturday, August 11th, HPPR & AAI invite kids of the High Plains to CHASE THE SUNSET with a celebration of art, music, & nature to bid the summer a final farewell.

THIS SATURDAY NIGHT!!! 

Don't miss this HPPR Living Room Concert from traveling Southwest singer-songwriters, BITTERSWEET HIGHWAY. This is their first show for our audience, so let's show them some love!

Bob is back, folks! This High Plains singer-songwriter has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life, even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful music legends in Texas. Bob Livingston's new album, Up the Flatland Stairs, has him traveling across the US -- and HPPR Living Room Concerts is pleased to announce he'll be playing for fans on the High Plains!

To quote The Boss, "You can't start a fire without a spark." So High Plains Public Radio wants to thank model humans Lindsey Verrill and Jeff Johnston for burning their end-of-tour flame on the Texas Panhandle.

Little Mazarn told us they were coming thorough Amarillo, and we had to make sure they'd pause and play us a few tunes. This Austin-based multi-instrumentalist Lindsey Verrill, accompanied by virtuosic sonic wails from Jeff Johnston on saw, blew our minds at South by Southwest 2018.

High Plains Morning wants to thank Sarah McQuaid for the phone interview about her video for "Slow Decay," which was inspired by the true story of Bill Conner—a father who biked 1,400 miles across the US to raise awareness about organ donation. 

COLLECTORS! MUSIC LOVERS! VINYL HOARDERS! AGING HIPSTERS! LISTEN UP! Across the US, vinyl enthusiasts celebrate RECORD STORE DAY on April 21st. This year, join High Plains Public Radio for our first-ever POP-UP VINYL SWAP at HPPR Studios—Amarillo (104 SW 6th Ave, Basement).
