In 2016, on Highway 61 Revisited we shared a special holiday show.  Host John Bushey shared rare  and unknown cuts, none so dear as when Bob Dylan reads "A Visit from St. Nicholas," better known as "Twas the Night Before Christmas" first published in 1823.

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.
