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.

This journey is the latest in what your travel hosts have billed as the ultimate bucket list vacation.

You better hurry, there are just two cabins left in a small, escorted group. Contact All-Inclusive today for costs and availability for this exciting vacation of a lifetime.

The Cloud recently visited with Jeff Gregory and Steve Lord, your local hosts for this exciting journey.

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.

Contact us today for a complete deck of information by visiting our website or giving us a call here at our offices in Lakewood, Colorado at (303) 980-6483 (Ext. 1).

A Big Sound from a Small Town: Wildermiss

Listen Now to 96.9 the Cloud brought to you by The Cheese Ranch Artisan Deli in Golden.

Right after 96.9 the Cloud signed on the air last year, it was clear to us that there was a need to seek out local 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.

Right in our own backyard of Golden, Colorado we found the perfect local match for the Cloud.

Meet Wildermiss.

Emma Cole (lead vocal), Josh Hester, Seth Beamer and Caleb Thoemke. Now touring and appearing on i-Heart Media venues, recently on NBC-TV and with our friends at Colorado Public Radio.

We are Cloud Proud of Wildermiss. Still heard daily on 96.9 the Cloud.

New in the Cloud: Music Go Round in Littleton.

New in the Cloud: Yamaha Silent Piano’s at Classic Pianos of Denver.

The finest for Colorado’s Best in Lakewood, Colorado.

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.

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

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.

From an interview on CBS This Morning

ON BEING RELAXED

The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything. The better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with your enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself.
