Jenny Inzerillo

Music Director | High Plains Morning Host

Jenny Inzerillo joined HPPR in 2015 as the new host of High Plains Morning, our live music program that airs weekdays at 9 am to noon CST. Broadcasting from KJJP in beautiful downtown Amarillo, she helps listeners wake up with inspired music from our region and beyond. Tune in for new music from the high plains, deep cuts from your favorite artists, soulful tracks from singer/songwriters across the world, and toe-tapping tunes in the folk tradition. Plus, discover some widely-unknown underground greats that just might become your new favorite band.

Jenny also coordinates the Living Room Concerts series, which produces live music shows in Amarillo, Garden City, and other venues throughout our listener area. Currently, the series hosts about 20 shows per year, but Jenny's working on growing that number. (Contact her if you'd like to discuss a performance!) 

When she's not on the air, hosting a show, or promoting HPPR, you can find Jenny researching music, volunteering, writing copy, thrifting weird dresses, reading short stories, baking hand pies, painting postmodern prairie landscapes, teaching her cats manners, watching music documentaries, bothering her friends for new music, bringing her husband coffee while he grades stacks of freshman composition papers, and taking extended bike rides to Palo Duro Canyon. 

To submit music, book an in-studio live performance, or inquire about HPPR's Living Room Concert Series, contact us at music@hppr.org

Today on High Plains Morning, HPPR listeners had the pleasure of a pre-lunch serenade and brief roots music history lesson from Mudbone.

Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

Today on High Plains Morning, we had Scott Stine live in the studio to talk about the Bad Magik Musik Fest that takes over Sam Houston Park this SATURDAY from noon to 9p. It's famliy-friendly, dog-welcoming, and features community-minded local vendors, artists, food, and fun.

High Plains Morning was thrilled to welcome guitar instructor Homero Campos of Amarillo College and his students to play LIVE in the studio. 

First, we lined up the Suzuki Guitar Ensemble, with student ranging from age 8 to 16. These kids learn to play by ear, then they learn to read music. It's called the "mother tongue" approach, treating the music like a new language.

The students played three tunes: 

Meadow Minuet by Frank Longay

All my Loving by The Beatles

Some people just don't know when to quit -- and for that, HPPR is thankful.

With more than 100 head of grass-fed cattle on his family farm in Buffalo, Missouri, you'd think Lyal Strickland wouldn't be tooling around the country with his guitar. However, you'd be incorrect. This guy loves pushing the logical boundaries of how much HARD WORK a human can handle, and then handle it all, he does.

Don't miss a phenomenal DOUBLE CONCERT for guitar lovers across the High Plains! Two GUITAR MASTERS perform at HPPR Studios in Garden City, KS on Friday, November 4th at 7pm. 

Hiroya Tsukamoto and

Adam Gardino, with special guest Kelly Champlin.

On Sunday afternoon, a group of citizens in Garden City, KS gathered at the apartment complex that was at the center of a thwarted terrorist plot by three members of a Kansas militia group to attack Muslim immigrants and refugees.

Called “the best kind of singer-songwriter” by the Dallas Observer, Vanessa Peters has played more than 1,100 shows in 11 countries and has independently released ten critically acclaimed albums. She tours the US and much of Europe, where she has a strong fan base thanks to the albums she made with her former Italian band, Ice Cream on Mondays. (It's because in Italy, all the gelaterias are closed on Monday -- and Vanessa struggled. Oh, she struggled.) 

FASO is thrilled to present internationally celebrated concert violinist, Rachel Barton Pine for the 2nd concert in the Friends of Aeolian-Skinner Opus 1024 (FASO)'s 2016-2017 Concert Season on Sunday, October 16!

Concerts are held at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church, (1601 Georgia St., Amarillo, TX).
