The high holidays of barbecue are upon us and food correspondent Aaron Retka has brought us this recipe for a burnt offering of the first order: Vermont Pig Candy.Continue Reading →
A few years back, we inherited a large bureau that had a brightly-colored stack of old semi-psychedelic posters tucked away in the bottom drawer. Full of mischievous proclamations and aphorisms, the posters were created in the early 70s by a Palmer High School student named Roy Linton…Continue Reading →
Nothing says summer in America quite like a yard sale. On the surface, it’s a great way to get rid of unwanted consumer goods and earn a little extra cash/find stuff you may or may not have been looking for on the cheap. But it can also be an extraordinarily personal act of revelation in which individuals turn their front yards and garages into intimate thrift stores of memory.Continue Reading →

Meadowgrass, which starts this evening, isn’t the only reason to go to La Foret as you will see in this video tour of the campus with Abby Sienkiewicz.
Speaking of Meadowgrass, congratulations to Michael Comora who won the two weekend passes to Meadowgrass by leaving this fantastic little brush-with-fame story on our new […]Continue Reading →

When NPR’s venerable quiz show taped their program at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, we lurked about behind the scenes to see what really goes on. We learned that Carl Kasell is a ridiculously nice guy, Peter Sagal works way harder than you think and Tom Bodett is much more erudite in […]Continue Reading →
DISCLAIMER: SOME OF THE IMAGES IN THIS SLIDESHOW DEPICT GRAPHIC NUDITY.
For a small liberal arts college without much of a reputation as a visual arts school, Colorado College has been home to some fantastic student artists in recent years such as Blaise Larmee and Streeter Wright among quite a few others.

On April 14, Colorado College graduate Mark Fiore found out that he had made history as the first political cartoonist to win the Pulitzer Prize in an online-only format. For a decade now, Fiore, who graduated in 1991, has been creating Flash-animated web-cartoons skewering politicians and policies across the political spectrum.
Fiore also […]Continue Reading →
Since we ran this piece last August, Ele Annand was accepted to the very prestigious 2-year core fellowship program at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. Lucky for us she agreed to do this excellent design for the Spring Fund Drive t-shirts:
Congrats, again, to Ele and here’s another look at her […]Continue Reading →
Remember those “What in the world!?” aerial photos of farm irrigation patterns or rainbow colored oil spills in your 8th grade geography text book? Somehow, almost anything looks beautiful with enough distance and a different perspective.
Such views are now at anyone’s fingertips with the magic of Google Maps. Zoom in, zoom out, pretend […]Continue Reading →

It’s really hard to watch the Olympics and not wonder why ALL the athletes aren’t wearing bedazzled lycra ball gowns and Elvis suits while competing for winter sports glory at an international level. Modesty and shame obviously aren’t the issue; just look at the superhero outfits into which many of the other athletes (speed […]Continue Reading →
OK, Big Something subscribers. We don’t ask much of you. Many of you Big Something subscribers are already KRCC Members, which is all we could ever ask for. And we’d guess that many of you will be attending the live taping of Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me on Thursday, May 6.
Here’s Peter Sagal […]Continue Reading →
This Valentine’s Day we want to send a giant Valentine to the Pikes Peak Library District’s Special Collections not only because books and libraries are the greatest, but also because the PPLD also has such fantastic online resources such as free access to newspaperarchive.com, a service (which costs money for folks without […]Continue Reading →
You’ve been listening to it for decades now on KRCC and you’ve always wondered… well, not what Garrison Keillor looks like. (Everyone knows what Garrison Keillor looks like: linen/gray suit, red shoes, red tie, Donald Trump coiffure). But you’ve always wondered what everyone else looks like—like the guy who sings the “Catsup” song and […]Continue Reading →
From 1909 to 1947, a hive of octagonal, green-and-white huts just big enough for one person dotted the grounds of Modern Woodmen of America’s Sanatorium tucked away against the foothills in Woodmen Valley […]Continue Reading →

This past summer, one of our readers sent us a series of photos of what remains of the old Cheyenne Mountain Lodge (it’s not open the public and we certainly discourage anyone from trespassing ), aka The Honeymoon Lodge, one of Spencer Penrose’s many opulent projects along his beloved Cheyenne Mountain Highway. We did […]Continue Reading →

Daft Punk punches Dead or Alive in the face, but in a nice way!Continue Reading →
We are very pleased to announce that, beginning today and every weekday from here forward, we will be embedding one song (or more) available for free download on The Big Something. The songs will be lovingly hand-picked by Delaney, Noel or one of our KRCC DJs. For the time being, we’ll be choosing […]Continue Reading →
What better way to leave the past decade behind and start the next than with a brilliant arts idea and $10,000 to make it happen? The most amazing thing about this Art Creates Community Grant from The Bee Vradenburg Foundation and Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado is, well… many […]Continue Reading →
(We recommend clicking on the arrows in the lower right-hand corner of the slideshow to watch this in full-screen.)
If you’ve ever poked around in the children’s section at the Penrose Public Library downtown then you may have seen a little locked glass cabinet full of lovely, out-of-print children’s books. We had a feeling […]Continue Reading →
