Born in New Jersey in 1937, Adams spent part of his childhood in Denver, only returning to Colorado [...]Continue Reading →
Hi, I’m Shelby. I’m a sweet older girl looking for a new home. I’m an 8-year-old a spayed Border collie beagle mix. My owner had to give me up because he couldn’t afford a dog anymore, so now I’m looking for one last home that will give me many happy years [...]Continue Reading →
Hi there! I’m Mia, a 3-year-old spayed long-haired gray tabby. I’m a very sweet girl who loves attention and who will follow you around all day long. I was very fearful and angry when I first came to HSPPR, so they put me in the Blue Collar Barn Cat program. I [...]Continue Reading →
When I was 17, someone made me read The Great Gatsby. I don’t remember the English teacher’s name, but I do remember the reverence and the slight hint of a romantic crush in her voice when she introduced our class to F. Scott Fitzgerald. I became [...]Continue Reading →
Hi there! I’m Goliath, a 6-year-old neutered black Labrador retriever mastiff mix. Picture the personality of a lab in a mastiff body! I am so sweet and friendly, but at 110 pounds, I am one big boy! I guess I just don’t know my own strength sometimes. I am very, very [...]Continue Reading →
Hi, I’m Boston. I’m a 1-year-old neutered black kitty. I’m a sweet boy with fantastic orange eyes. You won’t need any Halloween decorations with me around! I can be very shy in new situations, but I don’t mind being held. I’m a Private Investigator in HSPPR’s Feline-ality program, which means I [...]Continue Reading →
Hi there! I’m Sophie, a 6-year-old spayed white Jack Russell terrier. I came to HSPPR in February. My previous owner said I had been having seizures, so after monitoring me in foster care for a while, HSPPR examined my situation and started me on a life-long medication. I’ve been fine ever [...]Continue Reading →
Hi there. I’m Muffin, a 4-year old spayed tortie. I’m a tasty little treat; you will love the gorgeous colors in my coat, and I promise to give you nothing but sugar! I can be a little shy when you first meet me, but give me some gentle loving, and I’ll [...]Continue Reading →
Hi there, I’m Shay! First things first, don’t be fooled by the gray, I’m younger than I look. Unfortunately they don’t make Loreal hair dye for dogs. I’m a spayed 4-year-old terrier, and I’m a little shy at first. But I love gentle attention and will always sit for a treat. [...]Continue Reading →

I’m writing because Sunday is Mother’s Day, and at this late date, out here in the middle distance, I am still as confounded by the holiday as I was when you were growing up.
Yesterday someone asked me what I [...]Continue Reading →
Hi! I’m Tiger. I’m a 2-year-old neutered brown, umm, tiger, of course. But not to worry. My disposition runs much closer to that of Hobbs or Tony than to any wild tigers. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy attacking wayward feather wands, however! I’m a Sidekick in HSPPR’s Feline-ality program, which [...]Continue Reading →
While joking with the NPR folks is always fun, our own public radio mugs deserve another look. Our special Henson H915 camera reveals our inner Muppet or Sesame Street character for your enjoyment. Maybe they’ll make you laugh…or just make you pitiful. Either way, we hope you’ll keep allowing us to make public [...]Continue Reading →
As we head into the home stretch of the Spring membership drive here at KRCC, it’s time once again to peek behind the curtain of public radio’s Oz and put names with the faces of the Great Impartial Radio Gods of NPR and their celebrity doppelgangers because, well, it’s just fun. Plus it’s a perfect [...]Continue Reading →
Hi there. I’m Meowzer, a beautiful 1 1/2-year-old spayed brown tiger. Even though my name sounds like a Pokeman character, I promise, I am very sweet and would never go into battle. However, I would be delighted if you chose me! I can be a little bit shy at first, and [...]Continue Reading →
HI. I’m Lily. I’m a 1-year-old spayed brown tiger. I am very shy in new situations and might take some time to adapt in your house. But I enjoy gentle headscratches and kitty hugs, and a few treats and toys could help me make up my mind about you as well! [...]Continue Reading →
Here are the mothers, hands on hips, surveying the table for space, considering what, if anything, might be missing. Aunt Erma presides, my grandmother’s sister who still lives on these remaining acres of family land. Aunts and uncles and cousins have come from as far as the [...]Continue Reading →
This Saturday, the Gamelan group Tunjung Sari will present Temu Wicara Bali: A Celebration of Balinese Performing Arts in honor of the twentieth anniversary of Gamelan at Colorado College.

Hi there. I’m Bella, a 1 ½-year-old spayed tan Chihuahua. This beauty is a big personality in a small package! I love giving kisses and snuggling. And I still have all the energy of a puppy. I am very easy to walk because I’m so small, but I’m a bit little [...]Continue Reading →
Hi, hi! I’m Chuck, a 1-year-old neutered tan Blackmouth Cur. I fancy myself quite the superhero and will spend many happy hours flying around your backyard! But be careful! I’m an escape artist, so make sure you have a fence that’s more than 6 feet tall for this lightning bolt. And [...]Continue Reading →
Hi there. I’m Clair, a 3-year-old spayed grey longhair. I’m a very petite little girl, and my personality matches my delicate frame! I get startled easily and am a little shy in new situations. But I have the cutest little face you have ever seen, and I’m working hard on my [...]Continue Reading →
Back in 2011, we produced this slide show and radio feature (above) on local artist/teacher George Vandersluis and his involvement in the “Ghost Army,” a unit of WWII artists who created a modern Trojan horse: mass deceptions including inflatable fake tanks and sound effects records that helped the allies win the [...]Continue Reading →
If you could see the snow flowing down past the bedroom window, silencing the mid-April morning, you might not know where you are. Then you would remember: you are at home at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains where this is the peculiar incarnation of spring.

Hi! I’m Debow, a neutered black Labrador retriever. I am 62 pounds of pure energy. I love playing fetch in the yard, and the more exercise this boy gets outside, the calmer I will be once I come back in! I love rolling in the dirt and having my tailbone scratched, [...]Continue Reading →
