  • Open Range Open Range could bring to mind images of campfires, cowboys, wide open spaces, and endless skies… but here on HPPR, it means the freedom to roam musical airwaves without boundaries or fences. Wherever you find yourself, it's the perfect companion. High Plains Public Radio's own Stephen Johnson weaves music as diverse as the colors of a tapestry into a beautiful soundtrack. The pallet could have the shades of classic Ella Fitzgerald, the hues of contemporary soulful Amanda Marshall, tints of poet Lyle Lovett, the rugged dyes of Bruce Springsteen, or perhaps even the soft watercolor twang of Hank Thompson. Open Range has one guiding thread, and that is great music.
    LIVE @ 2:00 PM
  • What the Folk? 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...
