If you missed the Robert Belfour concert this past September, the Pikes Peak Library District has produced these gorgeous videos shot at the Juke Joint Thunderclap concert we presented last fall for your viewing pleasure.

We know it can be difficult to quantify the exact benefits of being a member of KRCC, but concerts like this are only a small part of the myriad cultural offerings we bring you every day on the radio and internet that your contribution helps fund. If these kinds of events, radio shows and locally produced programs make your life better, we hope you’ll join, renew or invite a friend to become part of our community as we begin our winter membership drive.

Thank you for your support!
