News Notes & Spins June 1 2013

station controlOkay … this is late.  It’s June… the festival season has started and my calendar is PACKED!  So if I’m late or if a new show is not done each week you’ll know why.  Not much on my end to report really… the Colorado Sound Live365 could use your help. We had a great 1st month, but May’s listens fell by over 50% … so would love to see that you’re listening.  The blog broke a record for unique views in a month with over 2000 for May.  So while the blog readership went up, the station listens went down … weird.  Here’s the link to the station – The Colorado Sound Live365 

cprLogoOpenAir 1340 has started a new program on CPR News (90.1 FM in Denver, cpr.org) called the Best of Mile High Noon. It’s an hour long show featuring all Colorado music, basically condensing a week’s worth of Mile High Noon (weekdays at noon on OpenAir) segments into a full hour. Runs Thursdays at 9 pm and repeats Sundays at 6 pm. Very exciting opportunity for OpenAir to bring Colorado music to the FM dial.

There will be Texas-style BBQ, salads, corn on the cob, microbrews and Mead available for purchase. More information online at http://www.kgnu.org
