Dave Zollo Performs On WSUI's 'Talk Of Iowa Live' Oct. 20

Musical journeyman Dave Zollo will perform his trademark fusion of jazz, blues and rock and discuss his elaborate career on "Talk of Iowa Live from the Java House" at 10 a.m. Oct. 20.

Locally, the program can be heard live on the University of Iowa station WSUI-AM 910 from the Java House, 211 E. Washington St. The public is invited to join the audience for the program.

Aside from being a singer and songwriter, Zollo is also keyboardist, record producer, and founder of his own musical label Trailer Records, which features many Iowa artists. He recently performed with Todd Snider on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Zollo's musical inspiration began when he started playing piano at the age of 4. The young artist discovered his father's record collection of folk, soul and vintage rock, and became known as the kid with the "old soul" in his early teens as he played the likes of Ray Charles before family members. Along the way, Zollo founded the band High and Lonesome, traveled the Midwest and released three albums and a solo record. Yet Zollo's musical career was nearly ended by a career-threatening throat condition, which has now been remedied by surgery and extensive therapy.

"Talk of Iowa" offers an eclectic variety of topics and guests for its listeners. The show is broadcast live statewide to an estimated 30,000 listeners each week on Iowa Public Radio stations WSUI AM 910 Iowa City/Cedar Rapids, WOI AM 640 Ames/Des Moines, KTPR-FM 91.1 Fort Dodge, KOWI-FM 97.9 Lamoni and KWOI-FM 90.7 Carroll. The broadcast can also be heard in streaming audio at http://wsui.uiowa.edu by clicking on "Listen to WSUI"; it is rebroadcast on WSUI at 10 p.m. Fridays. It is also broadcast several days later on cable TV over UITV in the Iowa City and Cedar Rapids area.
