We have 44 days of fall left, but the beautiful fall drives are over, so how do we continue to celebrate this shoulder season? I’ve got a few suggestions. A Late Fall Getaway in Colorado November isn’t a big getaway month for most people, but the “shoulder season” is a wonderful time to travel in Colorado. There are less cars on the roads, and unless you’re traveling on Thanksgiving, you’ll

This week’s radio segment is a little embarrassing. My voice is so husky that I sound like my other job might be at one of those late night phone chat establishments. The truth is that last week I was knocked on my butt with a terrible head cold/flu thing that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. Anyway, I’m just about back to normal, whatever normal is, and you should

HeidiTown on the Radio - Getting ready for a Colorado Christmas

It’s hard to believe, but the holidays are almost upon us, and while you may have been ignoring this fact, many have not. Last December’s post entitled “Top 5 Colorado Christmas Towns” has been trending here for nearly two months already. Apparently, many people are planning a Colorado Christmas this year. I hope that this week’s segment on KRFC 88.9 FM will help you get in the spirit. I’ve found

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

Dinner theaters often produce shows that will appeal to a mass audience, and old Broadway musicals are the norm. So when I go to dinner theater, I’m usually familiar with the production. Last weekend was the exception to that rule, and it was refreshing to have no preconceived notions about the show I was about to see at Boulder’s Dinner Theater. In the spring, we saw “Cinderella” at BDT, and

Greeley never ceases to surprise me. It’s an unassuming city, better known for beef than almost anything else, but then there’s the music. From the city’s inception, it has embraced music. The last time I visited the Greeley History Museum, I learned that the city is home to one of the nation’s longest running orchestras. The University of Northern Colorado is also well-known for an outstanding School of Music, so

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and that means from this point on I will be running around the state like a crazy woman with dusty festival feet and pulling a tired, but accommodating husband along behind me. The following are my KRFC 88.9 FM radio show transcripts for Memorial Day weekend. You can either read them, or if you prefer, listen to the audio HERE. *** Hi, my name

It’s time for another dinner theater review and this time I went back to Candlelight Dinner Playhouse  in Johnstown, Colorado for “Oklahoma!” I’ve been going to theater since I was just a little girl, but I had never seen a production of this famous play until last week. Today, “Oklahoma!” is considered a wholesome family musical and is often performed at high schools and even middle schools, so it’s difficult
