As we begin our fourth year of The Big Something, we’d like to solicit your feedback on our features to see if there’s anything we should be doing more, less or the same. We’d be grateful if you’d take this quick survey and leave us additional thoughts in the comment section below so we can better serve you, our readers and listeners.

Thanks and Happy New Year from The Big Something and KRCC.

 

6 Responses to The Big Something Year Ahead

  1. Linda Day says:

    I swear, this morning when I looked at this there was a place to check by the Kathleen Collins house tour. So, that is what I would like to see more of. Check. More of those. I loved the Pat Musick house tour of her father’s house in Garden of the Gods. I loved the story about the lodge on top of Cheyenne Mountain. (Because I was there 44 years ago with my three year old daughter; my little sister; my then-husband and not one of them remembers it but me. There was a stufed St. Bernard stationed at the front door.) So, more of that kind of thing. I did not see any of the three above.

  2. Kathryn says:

    Where’s the Middle Distance?

  3. Craig Richardson says:

    uh-oh… Sorry Kathryn (and fans of The Middle Distance)! You see, the thing is that since The Middle Distance is such an immovable pillar of The Big Something we didn’t even think of it in the same realm as the other genres of features that we would consider changing… Even though we omitted the Middle Distance in our survey, rest assured, we have received many, many “write-ins” expressing nothing but the most enthusiastic support for it.

  4. Jamie says:

    Are there archives of past stories available to view? Keep up the great work.
