Jerry Johnston
(Lincoln, NE USA)

The Mighty Vitamins


Jerry Johnston has been playing music since he picked out commercial jingles on a neighbor’s piano when he was a kid. Since then, it’s been 6th grade trombone lessons, a parade of piano teachers, guitar chord books, and countless choirs. He picked up with Jay Kreimer around 1990, and has played a variety of instruments in bands with him ever since. Some career musical highlights have been winning First Place in the Adam’s Apple Parade in Lucas, Kansas for “Best in Futuristic Music,” playing wild Mardi Gras parties in Southwestern Nebraska, and performing and recording avant-garde music for modern dance troupes. Johnston grew up moving every three years or so between Air Force Bases. His ancestral home is Kentucky, so he’s full of lore (as some have put it). He loves conversation, baseball, travel, bird watching, writing, outsider art, and, of course, his charming wife Trixie. Johnston is Morning Edition Host for NET Radio, Nebraska’s statewide NPR network, and teaches Religion and Philosophy courses at Doane College in Lincoln.
