Huber to perform ?Dust Bowl? songs at next 60+ session

Jay Huber, producer of the Radio Kansas ?Morning Edition? program and a Tabor College alum, will perform ?Dust Bowl? songs by American folk hero and songwriter Woody Guthrie at the next Learning in Retirement Program, beginning at 9:45 a.m. Monday, Oct. 5, at the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center on the Tabor campus.

Huber, a 1975 Tabor graduate, will play acoustic guitar and sing, ?This Land is Your Land,? and other classic Guthrie songs that struck a chord with the dispossessed and downtrodden in the 1940s.

For the past 22 years, Huber has been the producer of ?Morning Edition,? providing weather forecasts and local information during the broadcast from National Public Radio, heard from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday, on Radio Kansas, at 90.1 FM.

He also is arts coordinator at the station, maintaining an ?Arts Calendar? of all music events in the listening area and interviewing participants in those events for broadcast on the show.

A gifted musician who also plays trumpet, piano and drums, Huber taught instrumental and vocal music in area schools before going into radio. He said he enjoys performing at weddings and in concert at arts events and coffeehouses.

The public is welcome to attend all Learning in Retire?ment programs. Fees are $3 per session or $15 per semester ($28 per couple). Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door during the half hour before the meeting.
