On this episode of Air Check Jake talks with local photographer Larry Hulst about the decades of photographs that he has taken of Rock n Roll icons; L.A. group The Wild Reeds stop by the 91.5 KRCC studios; We look into the DIY arts and music scene in Colorado Springs; and Hannah Fleming speaks with Finnish musician Lau Nau about the art of improvisation and scoring films. 

91.5 KRCC will be introducing listeners to some new favorites this Monday, March 6th.  I hope you will join us at 10am weekday mornings for news and topical debate with NPR's 1A.  91.5 KRCC is also adding the popular economic news program Marketplace, to our weekday line up at 3pm and 6:30pm.  

I'm really excited to be able to present the "new" A Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile of the bands Nicklecreek and The Punch Brothers hosting the show on Saturdays 4pm to 6pm, and Sunday mornings from 10am to noon. 

Music fans can rest assured that 91.5 KRCC Music Director Vicky Gregor will continue to curate music weekday evenings from 7pm to 10pm, with great community volunteers rounding out the music block from 10pm to midnight.

Your favorite weekend music shows will include my Blue Plate Special blues show every Saturday night at 7pm, followed by Vintage Voltage with GT at 8pm.

On Sunday evenings you can relax and expand your music education through the Jazz Excursion with host Dick Fairley at 7pm. End your weekends with great reggae from host Ron Wilson starting at 10pm. See the entire new schedule here.

We are working on digital on-demand deliveries of all of our local music shows through our website, and on mobile apps that are available for iPhones and Android devices on iTunes and Google Play. We hope to have this feature live next week so you can listen to 91.5 KRCC Music whenever and wherever you want. Stay tuned!

Thank you for your support,
Jeff Bieri

On this episode of Air Check, multi-talented local musician Ryan Flores reflects on his life as a working artist; author LeAnna DeAngelo tells the story of the first performance at Red Rocks; the legendary David Bromberg drops by to play a few tunes; and our very own Vicky Gregor takes a trip down memory lane with a jar of ticket stubs dating all the way back to the mid-80s.

On this episode of Air Check, Mike Doughty talks getting sober and going solo after Soul Coughing, Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket plays some songs from his new record, Bill Forman shares some stories from his long career as a music critic, and we remember two towering musical figures that we lost in the last month.  

Stoney Bertz has been making waves in the Colorado Springs music scene since 2011, when she released her first album Fades and Green Stuff on SoundCloud. She’s been on an upward trajectory ever since, creating a steady stream of excellent records and earning a reputation for her sharp lyricism and infectious flow. In 2015 she won Best Solo Hip-Hop Artist at the Colorado Springs Indy Music Awards.
