Omaha musician and local legend Dereck Higgins joins me on the show to talk about his colorful musical upbringing. He's played virtually all styles of music and has been a pioneer in the Omaha music scene. From Jazz to punk, Dereck has played it all and experienced what it's like to be the only black man in a rock and roll band in the Midwest. Times have changed and Dereck is now playing in the Saddle Creek Records band Son Ambulance, as well as pursuing his own music as well as working in film.
He's also one of the nicest cats I've ever met.
