It's no coincidence that the Duluth Dylan Festival is paying a bit more attention to the literary aspect of its favorite son's career, now that he's a Nobel laureate.

Duluth, MN – KUMD 103.3 FM's legendary Highway 61 Revisited, a show dedicated to Bob Dylan’s music, will return this Saturday at 5pm with a new host, DJ Miriam. The show was hosted for the past 25 years by its founder, Dylan expert John Bushey, who passed away in February. 

"John was inspired to pass the torch and he shared his wishes with us.

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.
