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:

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.

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.

Relax: you’ve got Sunflower Bank in Golden.

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.

The Natural Stairmaster of Red Rocks Amphitheater.

As our crazy winter weather continues, you might want to skip the gym and head to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison.

The natural wonder provides the perfect amount of stairs and open air to insure a very sturdy work-out.

You won’t need an expensive membership to get your heart rate up and your glutes firing with all those steps (there’s 192 to be exact).

Just head to west on Morrison Road from anywhere in Jeffco. Covering the 70-rows from the center, up-and-down and end-to-end is about 3 miles.

The elevation, at 6,450 above sea level, combined with its natural beauty make for a breath taking work out. Might make a fun play-date with a special friend.

There’s plenty of fun dining in town (Cloud picks: The New Red Rocks Beer Garden, just because it’s awesome, Tony Rigatoni, just because it’s tasty, or a romantic picnic basket from The Cheese Ranch in Golden.

Just remember to hydrate…this is Colorado after all.

Memories of past shows at the venue make for positive mind food too!
