The popular Dylan-centric show “Highway 61 Revisited” on KUMD-FM goes on - with a new host. Miriam Hanson has stepped in after the death of 25-year host and show founder John Bushey.
The show airs from 5-6 p.m. Monday and Saturday and features Dylan’s music, including rarities, in addition to covers by other artists.
“John was inspired to pass the torch, and he shared his wishes with us,” KUMD program director Miija Jenson said in a news release. “He really admired Miriam, and we are thankful for her stepping up in taking the reigns as we enter a new era of Highway 61 Revisited.”
Bushey died in February after a long battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
