New Music in the Cloud.

(Denver, Colorado): 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 Light Shade 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 […]

The Art + Zen of Bill Murray.

(Denver, Colorado): 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 […]

The Natural Stairmaster of Red Rocks Amphitheater.

(Morrison, Colorado): 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 (the […]

Littleton Cares: The Alley’s Beautiful Scar Event Was a Remarkable Family Adventure.

(Littleton, Colorado): When you think about Colorado comfort food in the Fall, there’s little wonder about what the harvest from magical places like Pueblo have been yielding for almost centuries: Colorado Green Chili. More of a gravy actually, authentic Colorado Green (as it’s often reverently referred too) has become a staple to many a Fall meal (best served with a warm fluffy tortilla). Comforting, calming and tasty. It also comes as no surprise that The Alley’s genuinely caring General Manager Tommy Scarbrough thoughtfully chose the backdrop of The Alley’s First Annual Green Chili Festival to promote funds and awareness for The Beautiful Scar Project. The turnout was breathtaking. It was standing room only. From the The Alley’s Main Street patio through the authentically local restaurant and welcoming bar. There were families with children. Smiling couples, singles […]
