Beer at the Lyons Fork HeidiTown

It’s time for another HeidiTown segment on KRFC 88.9 FM. June has five weekends, so that’s changing up my recording schedule. After this segment, I won’t be back on the radio until July 3rd, so this week’s segment covers the rest of June. As always, in order to get the most out of HeidiTown, I encourage you to visit the town’s block party on Facebook and subscribe to HeidiTown.com here.

This week’s a little screwy, but that’s okay. Radio is not an exact science and neither is blogging. This post usually goes up on a Monday, but this week it’s being posted on a Friday, but that’s okay too because most of what I talk about in this segment are festivals in mid-April. As you know, my radio segments on KRFC 88.9 FM are now recorded and aired every other

Nothing moves us quite like music. If you are anything like me, music is one of the most powerful memory triggers. While certain tunes take me back to college or high school, other songs take me back to a specific place and time. To this day if I hear “Every Morning” by Sugar Ray I have a vivid memory of driving through the hills of west Seattle with my girlfriend

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

After a week off, it’s time for another installment of the Mayor on KRFC 88.9 FM, community public radio in Fort Collins, Colorado. Starting in February, these shows will occur on the 1st and 3rd week of each month. Life is just getting too crazy to do a show each and every week. Remember, if you’d like to catch the show on the radio, I’m on at 5:55 p.m. on

It seems rather appropriate for the Mayor of a place called HeidiTown to have a connection to the German Chamber of Commerce – Colorado Chapter. Full disclosure: This organization has been advertising their events with HeidiTown for a while now and it’s a match made in heaven. This organization puts together well-organized and top-notch events that I am more than happy to slap my endorsement on. Their Biergarten Festival is

Some people love the holidays, but there are many of us who find the season a bit stressful. Family obligations, travel and high expectations can make an otherwise merry time of year downright  excruciating. There’s no way to avoid the holidays, but you can find ways to make them a little less hectic. In this week’s segment on KRFC 88.9 FM, I outline some activities that will slow you down

Veterans Day Loveland lamp post

Veterans Day is Sunday, November 11, 2012. This post is a day late because on the first Monday of the month I always reveal the recipient of the HeidiTown Gives Back Campaign. This week’s segment on KRFC 88.9 FM is dedicated entirely to all the veterans who have served our country with honor. This week’s radio show includes the different ways you can honor our Colorado veterans this weekend from

As the days get shorter and colder, I start to think about theater and museums. I realize these topics come up a lot on HeidiTown, but that’s because Colorado has no shortage of artistic and cultural events to write about, plus museums and live theater are the Mayor’s favorites. On this week’s radio show on  KRFC 88.9 FM, I share some upcoming art-related events happening along the Front Range in
