It’s hard to believe, but I’ve been on the radio at KRFC 88.9 FM for over a year and a half now. They came to me during the summer of 2011, asking if I’d be interested in doing a community segment, and I jumped at the chance. For 80 weeks I produced nearly 100 percent new material for the five minute show. With an increasingly active travel schedule, at the
While in Cripple Creek I was incarcerated and lost some money, but I’d still go back. We arrived in Cripple Creek on a cloudy Friday afternoon. I had been invited to be a guest at the brand new Rush Casino, formerly the Gold Rush. The building had been shuttered for three years before the new owners bought it, renovated the place and opened in August 2012. I had never been
Last week, I previewed Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest on the blog and this week I’m also talking about it on my segment on KRFC 88.9 FM. As one of the largest, FREE, music festivals in Colorado, it deserves an entire radio segment dedicated to the event. Listen HERE.
My parents met while singing in a traveling church band in the 70s, and on many childhood nights I fell asleep listening to my dad strumming his guitar downstairs. My mom, who is an accomplished pianist, laughingly used to accuse my dad of hugging his guitar more than her.

Today, you’d be hard pressed to throw a rock and not hit a brewery in Northern Colorado. More than a dozen new breweries popped up in just the last year,

Some of you may still be unaware, but Fort Collins, Colorado is becoming the place to be a rising music star, and KRFC 88.9 FM has been there along the way providing a platform for these musicians to reach out to the community and the world. Fort Collins is very lucky to have a community radio station such as KRFC, and since August 2011, I’ve been lucky enough to be
CONTEST CLOSED This past summer, one of the most standout events I attended was the 1940s WWII Ball. My husband and I didn’t really know what to expect, but by the end of the night we both agreed that this was the most fun we’d had at an event in a long time, and we go to A LOT of events. This is the sort of evening out that creates
