It’s hard to express the amount pride we here at KRCC feel both in our region and our local music scene after this past weekend’s Prairie Home Companion at the World Arena, which featured both a touchingly amusing poem about Colorado Springs by Garrison Keillor and, of course, the amazing Haunted Windchimes from Pueblo, Colorado. What made us most proud was how much our region sounded like the place we all know it to be: amazingly beautiful, diverse and culturally rich. It’s about time!

Congratuations to all involved, especially KRCC’s Jeff Bieri for making it happen and to all the members of KRCC who helped us finish our Fall Membership Drive last Friday.

Thanks you!

    What an excellent show! Thanks, KRCC, we can always count on you to get the best live shows. So proud of the Haunted Windchimes, too, they did a super job!

  4. Was so awesome to see Garrison Keillor and to
    hear his stories with their Colorado settings. All the storytelling, sound effects and great music made it a very happy experience.

    What a thrill! I listened to the podcast tonight as I drove from Denver to Breckenridge, beneath a humongous Halloween moon and scary illuminated clouds, climbing up, up, up, then dropping down to Summit County from the tunnel as the moon turned the mountains an eery purple. So proud to be part of KRCC and Colorado Springs, and to be a fan of the Windchimes.

  6. Christina says:

    The show was absolutely wonderful. I’ve waited so many years to be able to see a live show of PHC, and I so much appreciate KRCC making it happen.
