Happy Birthday, Arizona - Native Sounds Native Voices, Valentine's Day Tribute
NATIVE SOUNDS-NATIVE VOICES RETURNS WITH NEW EPISODESWITH VALENTINE'S DAY TRIBUTE
LINCOLN, Neb.-New episodes of the award-winning Native American music radio show, Native Sounds-Native Voices, created by the AIROS radio network and hosted by veteran Radio Producer "Kutchiak" John Gregg is coming weekly to the airwaves.
Starting at 8 a.m. (CST), Thursday, Feb. 14, Gregg will host the music series Native Sounds-Native Voices with a special two-hour Valentine's Day tribute live on KZUM (89.3-FM) in Lincoln, complete with on-air requests. The new shows also will be streamed online on Native American Public Telecommunication's (NAPT) AIROS.org starting Feb. 15.
"It had a popular following back in 2005 and a lot of great new music has come out since then," Gregg (Hopi/Inupiat) said. "We're excited to bring back an old venue for Native American music and showcase some great new artists."
Native Sounds-Native Voices was created in 1997 after AIROS was looking for a way to generate more Native American content. The original, daily, one-hour show featured not only new and established musicians but shared cultural elements about the artists. The National Federation of Community Broadcasters awarded Native Sounds-Native Voices with the Golden Reel Award in 1998 and 1999 for best national music/entertainment series.
Although the show had continued to air, production of Native Sounds-Native Voices ended in 2005 prior to Gregg being named coordinator of AIROS' Native Radio Theater project.
Gregg said he is excited about returning to his roots. Each Thursday at 8 a.m. (CST) the new two-hour Native Sounds-Native Voices will air live on NAPT's partner, KZUM, and be streamed from their Web site, KZUM.org. Encore presentations will be available the following weekend on AIROS.org. Please check AIROS.org for the program schedule.
Gregg will be taking listeners' requests at 402-474-5086.
