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
It’s time for another segment on KRFC 88.9 FM. Please note that there will not be a radio segment next week due to the Mayor’s crazy holiday schedule.

Obviously, I was born into a musical family, and I have an honest appreciation of musicians and live music. Unfortunately, I
Northern Colorado is known as the Napa Valley of Beer for a very good reason – people here LOVE beer, and everyone fancies themselves a beer snob, and whether they enjoy stouts, IPAs, wheats or reds, it’s gotta be Colorado-brewed. 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,
