As we march along through the fall fund-drive, we wanted to offer Big Something subscribers a FREE, online-only compilation of a few of our favorite songs from concerts, in-studio performances, and free downloads made available by the wonderful local and touring musicians we’ve had the pleasure of bringing to you over the past six months. Some of these songs come from posts such as our Penny Aracade Song Contest, or our feature on local bands The Changing Colors, Edith Makes a Paper Chain, and Juliet & th’ Spirits. Of course, there’s a live track by the Magnolia Electric Company from Meadowgrass, a live track from the recent Vieux Farke Toure concert and a few excellent in-studio performances from Martha Scanlan, The Electric Illuminati and The Mitguards.

We hope you enjoy all the music programming and live performances KRCC brings you every year and we appreciate your support of the station and these events. And we hope you continue to enjoy The Big Something as we continue to bring you the best culture the Pikes Peak Region has to offer.

  8. Hi, Noel:

    The Big Something is great! Thanks for your hard work. Here’s a suggestion: How about a story about Nikola Tesla? He was a really important scientist that lived here in 1899 and did some fantastic work with electricty. My friend and I were dicussing him Friday and the fact that it’s silly that we don’t have a nice museum here in town in his honor. Check him out.
    Thanks,

    Mike Kimlicko
