(CelebrityAccess News Service) — The new nationally syndicated Lost Highway Radio Show is scheduled to air in late August, and Bono will be host of the debut. The Lost Highway Radio Show will feature one artist per each hour-long program, recorded live in concert. The kickoff program will feature a special 90-minute concert from Lucinda Williams, recorded at New York's Bowery Ballroom on May 27, 2003.
"We are extremely passionate about the Lost Highway Radio Show as it showcases the live talent of the incredible artists on Lost Highway," says Luke Lewis, Lost Highway president and chairman of UMG Nashville. "This label was started with the idea of nurturing artists who loved to tour and play live, and we believe the radio show is the perfect vehicle."
A new artist and new host will be featured on each show, which will air quarterly to start. American/Lost Highway recording artist The Jayhawks have just completed a live recording in Chicago that will be featured on the second Lost Highway Radio Show (air date tba). — By Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
