We are excited about our upcoming move but expenses are high! Can you help? Make a donation today!
This month we are proud to shine our spot light on Open Harvest Natural Foods Cooperative Grocery located at 1618 South Street. Did you know that KZUM and Open Harvest have been buddies for over 30 years? Many people remember when KZUM's broadcast facilities were located in the basement of Open Harvest at 27th & Randolph streets. My, how both businesses have grown through the years. At that time, KZUM's broadcast signal had only a one mile radius and Open Harvest was just a small group of volunteers working to support the local food market.
As stated in their Mission Statement, "The goal of Open Harvest is to provide good health through good nutrition." This provides a large selection of natural, organic produce and grocery items, vitamins, supplements and educating people on the importance of choosing foods that are the way nature intended them to promote greater health is what Open Harvest is all about. You can be assured that the foods available at Open Harvest are of the highest quality and contain no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
In addition to carrying the highest quality foods available, Open Harvest has a unique focus on customer service. All employees and volunteers receive customer service training and education on all the products they carry. They even provide a grocery delivery service for seniors and individuals in the community who are house bound.
By providing foods from local producers, this community-owned business with around 3500 members, supports sustainable agriculture whenever possible. They provide several items like grains, nuts, snack foods, herbs and spices in bulk and honey, eggs, milk, cheese, produce and meat are purchased from local producers primarily. They are supporting members of the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society and support organic farmers in Nebraska.
Make it a point to stop by Open Harvest. Their newly expanded facilities are beautiful, and combined with the great service, create a wonderful shopping experience.

KZUM Celebrates Black History Month
February is Black History Month. KZUM is excited to be part of three exciting events honoring this special time. Christina "Miz B." Brooks of the "Da Kick it Session" on KZUM, is hosting the First Annual "Black & White Party" on February 17, 2012 at The Alley located at 1031 M Street. The party starts at 9pm and will include live performances by E-Nutt, Si-Lence and Rob Lowe, food, raffle prizes, giveaways, and a special guest performance by Limo G. Admission is $5 with proceeds going to KZUM! So come out and celebrate Black History Month and kick it to the sounds of "Da Kick it Session" with Miz. B.
In addition to this featured event, Miz. B. will be hosting the first ever KZUM Traffic Jam. This special programming event will occur February 13-17 from 5-6pm and will feature urban and hip-hop music with discussions involving artists, entertainers, and community leaders. The line up starts today:
Monday, February 13th: Miz. B. will be interviewing local entertainer and entrepreneur, DJ Romeo.
Tuesday, February 14th: Miz. B. will feature R&B artist and former Husker basketball player turned semi-pro, Ryan Christian.
Wednesday, February 15th: Miz B. will be interviewing Shukree Hassan Tilghman, a 29-year-old African American filmmaker. Tilghman is on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. His film, "More Than a Month," will be shown as part of KZUM and NET Television's "Coffee & Conversation" film and discussion series, on the following day. Keep reading for more details on this particular event.

Finally, as mentioned above, KZUM & NET Television will host "Coffee & Conversation" featuring the film, "More Than a Month" on Thursday, February 16th at 6pm. This tongue-in-cheek journey investigates what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in "post-racial" America. For more information, see our Event Calendar.
How's it Growing?
February is "Plant Seeds of Greatness" month. What seeds have you planted lately? Here at KZUM, we are sowing seeds like crazy; like sprouting into a beautiful new office and studio space, expanding our vines into the community, and blooming into a new and improved community radio station.
As Spring approaches, many are thinking ahead to landscaping and gardening projects. Did you know that KZUM has a gardening show? "How's it Growing?" with Bob & Betine, this call-in radio program is dedicated to answering all of your gardening questions. For over 10 years, they have offered advice to gardeners far and wide; providing tips on plant care, pest and weed control, and all the other fun things that outdoor enthusiasts enjoy.
But that's not all! In addition to their great gardening advice, Bob & Bertine regularly interview people in our local gardening community. Recent interviews include a discussion on downtown plants and their care with members of the Downtown Lincoln Association, a conversation about trees with a representative from the Nebraska Forest Service, and a discussion with the Executive Director of the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society.
You can listen to "How's it Growing" by tuning your radio dial to 89.3 from 11 a.m. to Noon on Wednesday's, by listening online, or by catching up on past episodes by listening to their podcasts. KZUM program podcasts are available at www.KZUM.org. Click on the Programming Tab at the top of the page, select Podcasts, and then select the program you wish to hear.
Whether you are a seasoned gardener with a natural green thumb or a beginner mostly experienced in growing mold in the refrigerator, there is something for everyone on "How's it Growing?" Tune in and let your own seeds of greatness sprout and bloom!
