All-Inclusive Vacations and Cruises has been serving Jefferson County and the world for over 20 years.

Tell us about this special destination?

The Galapagos islands are like no other chain of volcanic islands in the world!

Because of their remoteness, the Galapagos are pristine virtually undiscovered by mankind until 1535.

Because of this relative isolation, the plants, birds and marine animals that thrive here, were able to adapt to the harsh climate and varied ecosystems of the islands without intrusion from outside influences.

To this day, the Galapagos are strictly managed so that its unique flora and fauna are found nowhere else in the world.

Who is a good fit for this trip?

This trip will appeal to the seasoned, able-bodied traveler who might have already been on a Safari but wants a closer interaction with uninhibited animal species both on land and in the water.

One More Spring Snow.

Snowmageddon. Really?!? Enough already.

Listen Now to 96.9 the Cloud brought to you by your Golden Owned UPS Store.

Be extra careful on the roads. This recent snowfall is a whole different kind of winter animal.

Think ice, snow and freezing rain with gale force winds, combined with 1 million nutty transplant commuters from warmer parts confidently whizzing down the highways.

Then boom!

It’s spring again with sunshine and water everywhere.

This week, might be the perfect week to find your new seasonal Colorado ride!

If you’re like the rest of us, there’s work, there’s school, there’s a dog to walk, a paper to retrieve and simple navigation to your car or light rail will be a slippery slope.

The great thing about snow? It awakens the inner alpine in all of us.

The best advice?

Make sure you are first, fully awake.  You might also consider wearing winter layers with sensible shoes when venturing out in the early morning hours.

Skip Starbucks and head to Paciugo in Belmar for a steaming espresso and tasty Italian sweets.

Might make perfect sense to grab an extra coffee or espresso too on your way to life tomorrow in Jefferson County.

Stay Limber and Alert

But if you should slip and fall? The experts say to take a fall like you might on your mountain bike.

Might be time for some Salsa to heat up your next ride!

Roll into a forward fall and remember to tuck that chin in if heading downward on your backside.  

It’s going to be a jungle out there during your morning commute on colder mornings.

Might be the perfect time to make the Click of a Lifetime.

So tomorrow when you venture out?

Tune us in. You might just hear something positive and up-lifting that will make you feel great.

A Big Sound from a Small Town: Wildermiss

We Love You Golden!

Right after 96.9 the Cloud signed on the air in 2016, it was clear to us that there was a need to seek out local Colorado bands that have what’s now known as “the cloud sound” that our listeners have come to expect.

We did not have to look far.

We made a remarkable discovery with our friends and advertising partners at The Buffalo Rose.

Golden’s Premier Music Venue, Just Got Better!

Meet Wildermiss.

Emma Cole (lead vocal), Josh Hester, Seth Beamer and Caleb Thoemke.

The band has now toured most of the country and has appeared on i-Heart Media venues, NBC-TV and with our friends at Colorado Public Radio.

Home of the working musician in Colorado.

Not only truly gifted and talented musicians, but amazingly spirited and wonderful people.

We are Cloud Proud of Wildermiss and still air their music daily, including the bands latest release Hell or High Water:

Would you like to hear your music in the Cloud?

It’s simple.

You can contact me directly. I would be honored to give your music a listen and maybe a few spins to see if it’s a fit.

New Music in the Cloud.

There’s a new band in the Cloud that has been getting some attention from our listeners.

The band is The Corona’s and their distinctive alt-pop sound grabbed our attention late last year and we have been showcasing the bands music ever since as a featured new music pick from Lightshade in the Cloud daily.

The Coronas are an Irish rock band that originated in Dublin.

They release their unique blend of music through their own independent record label, but can also be found in i-Tunes.

It’s lead singer can also be heard in the Cloud introducing the bands latest single (it’s kind of cool how that came about).

The bands manager had heard the Cloud was featuring its music and one thing led to another.

The band just appeared at Denver’s Larimer Lounge in February. It was a great show.

Hopefully, they will back soon. In the meantime, you can hear them daily in the Cloud and anytime right here!

The Art + Zen of Bill Murray.

There’s a very pleasing and amusing little song playing on 96.9 the Cloud that both stands out and fits in perfectly with the likes of Vance Joy, Colbie Caillat and most of the happy pop tunes you hear on the Cloud. 

In fact, the song is called Happy Street and it’s performed by none other than Bill Murray. The Mark Twain Kennedy Center Honoree, Lost in Translation star, Tootsie co-star and yes, every golfers favorite movie: Caddyshack.

New and used masterpieces await just a short drive from Golden.

Yup, that Bill Murray.

Mr. Murray recently shared his genius at The Bellco Theater and last week was back on Saturday Night Live for a guest shot in it’s cold open.  So, what’s the story with his appeal? We did a little digging and it turns out, the world loves this guy because he reminds us of a better version of ourselves, without having to.

In his own words: the Art & Zen of Bill Murray.

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE BILL MURRAY

Nothing prepared me for being this awesome. It’s kind of a shock to wake up every morning and be bathed in this purple light. There’s a wonderful sense of well-being that begins to circulate . . . up and down your spine. And you feel something that makes you almost want to smile. So what’s it like to be me? Ask yourself, ‘What’s it like to be you?’ The only way we’ll ever know what it’s like to be you is if you work your best at being you as often as you can, and keep reminding yourself that’s where home is.

From a 2014 Q&A during Canada’s Bill Murray Day, via Rolling Stone

Live Your Life in Luxury.

HE LIVES HIS LIFE

I live a little bit on the seat of my pants, I try to be alert and available for life to happen to me. We’re in this life, and if you’re not available, the sort of ordinary time goes past and you didn’t live it. But if you’re available, life gets huge. You’re really living it.

The Magical Wonders of a Breakfast Burrito.

Rain or shine there’s always a line at Tamale Kitchen on South Kipling and Belleview in Jefferson County.

It might very well be due to the ever tasty and always filling breakfast burritos and Mexican deliciousness served all day. For as long as anyone can remember there have always been breakfast burritos in Colorado.

Cloud Pick: Tamale Kitchen in Jeffco

The Cloud salutes this savory creation that begins with these key ingredients and ends with a nice warm tummy.

First, creamy rich chili, gently whipped and scrambled fresh eggs, nicely diced and roasted potato, shredded monterey jack cheese, all delicately wrapped in a warm fluffy flour tortilla.

At this point of culinary bliss your only real dilemmas: red or green chili, smothered or wrapped in foil.

Happy Mother and Daughter at Tamale Kitchen

Tamale Kitchen on Kipling and Belleview is a local treasure and worth the stop anytime. As winter’s alpine season finally begins, its every snow ski or boarders first stop (perhaps after Starbucks) in Jeffco.

On warmer days it’s also the first stop (okay, maybe second after Starbucks) of every golfer and mountain biker in the Colorado.

You have not loved and lost until one of the many pesky magpies at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Jefferson County steals your Tamale Kitchen breakfast burrito on the number one tee.

All rolled in a warm fluffy flour tortilla, gently whipped farm fresh eggs and cheese with legendary green chili pork gravy.

Now, that’s a wrap.
