KHUM-FM Releases KHUM BLEND II, New In-Studio Compilation CD

Just in time for the holiday season, KHUM 104.3 FM is releasing the KHUM Blend, Live from the KHUM Studio, Vol. II, a collection of live performances recorded on the air on KHUM.
The official CD release will be on Saturday, Dec. 1 during Arts Alive! at Los Bagels in Eureka with live music by Huckleberry Flint, Lila Nelson, and Sari Baker with Joel Sonenshein, all of whom are featured on the CD.

The second installment in the KHUM Blend CD series is focused on North Coast bands and musicians, including The Rubberneckers, Lik’wefi, The Delta Nationals, Cuckoo’s Nest, Kulica, the Sari Baker Trio, The Nucleus, Absynth Quintet, and many others.

“I am particularly pleased that this CD focuses on all local artists, because we do have so much talent here on the north coast,” said KHUM’s General Manager Patrick Cleary.  “I believe KHUM is unique in the radio industry in how much it focuses on local musicians.  I hope this CD helps bring greater recognition to them outside the area.”

The Rubberneckers’ “Another Sunny Day” was broadcast remotely from a farmhouse in Blue Lake.  This performance, as well as the Delta Nationals’ “Ovila Beaudoin,” were featured during KHUM’s “Back Porch” live music show.

“Bodhi Tree,” by Lila Nelson is the most-requested song on the album, and remains a KHUM favorite.  Nelson, who is now a DJ for KHUM, was a relative newcomer at the time.  It was recorded during a songwriter celebration of the Humboldt Folklife Festival.

The CD also includes the debut of “Breakin’ The Bank,” by John Berning, who is well-known for his gas-price protest songs and has been played on NPR’s Car Talk.

The KHUM Blend series started nearly three years ago with a compilation of live performances from the KHUM studio in Ferndale, with the profits going to the Stop the Violence Fund at the Humboldt Area Foundation.  The Stop the Violence Fund annually supports local organizations that work to fight the effects of violence and to help prevent domestic abuse.  All net proceeds from the CD will go to Stop the Violence, as well.

KHUM Blend, Vol. II will be available after December 1, at local outlets including The Metro in Arcata, The Works in Eureka and Arcata and Eureka Natural Foods.  Visit for more information.
