KUMD Celebrates 25 years of Highway 61 Revisited with John Bushey

A musical celebration in honor of John Bushey, Host of Highway 61 Revisited on KUMD 103.3 FM, was held Saturday, October 15, 2016 at The Rex Bar Fitger's. It was a night full of music and special guests honoring the local Dylanologist, magician, collector, historian, educator, and amazing community volunteer who's been bringing us a weekly dose of Bob Dylan music and information for 25 years.
