Re: “Managed mayhem

I have been to every godsmack concert in Colorado since 1998 and have never been let down. They are one of the best bands to see live and would'nt miss one their shows for anything. Long Live the Smack!

Re: “Managed mayhem

I've seen a lot of shows. Godsmack truly is one of the best that I have ever seen. From opening for Metallica to an unplugged show in Jackson Hole, WY, they put on one AMAZING show. I would see Godsmack a hundred times before I saw Megadeth again. Don't get me wrong, Megadeth is a great band and puts on a great show. But for overall showmanship? Godsmack wins every time!

Re: “Reverb

As the manager and programmer of KEPC I want to be sure you know Bill, we do backsell or frontsell every song when there is a student intern on the air. I push the importance of that to them every day. We have a playlist of over 6500 song titles from alternative and local artists. And it's a pleasure to be one of the only stations playing these local artists. The student personalities do a wonderful job of educating the listeners to new music. If there isn't a live person on the air, listeners know they can email me at any time and I find that music for them. Some of my students pointed out this article to me and they didn't appreciate your comment. We know the 13th century part was humorous, but give the Pikes
Peak Community College Radio and TV students credit for working hard when they are on the air.

Obviously you do listen at times Bill and we all appreciate that! We are the only place in town to find this variety of alternative and local talent. Many leave the Springs and continue listening on the Internet in their new town. But my guess is they didn't have that luxury in the 13th century! Glad they do today...and be watching for an extended playlist on our website soon for all those times you have missed the title and artist!

Re: “Music is the weapon

"I don't see enough people moving outside of those organizations to create their own thing."
True enough brother... I've been playing here for a couple of decades and it is VERY hard to find jazz gigs that actually-P-A-Y more than 50-75 bucks a night here in C/S. I catch much more work in Denver and even Pueblo. That means working 100 nights a year and NOT pulling in 8K- hardly a wage to live on for a single person, let alone a family. I've found it exceedingly difficult to create your own thing when few C/S venues will take a chance on jazz. Perhaps worst of all, we now have some guys playing for FREE...FREE!...on Wednesdays around town. Hard to say its a "profession" if everybody thinks they can be a player and clubs keep hiring the wannabees...

Re: “In a silenced way

I call during the fund drive every year just to ask "Do you still run jazz on the weekends? Oh, you don't?! That's such a terrible shame, goodbye."

Re: “Beer, blood, breakups

This is a nicely written piece about this rising band. Chamberlin formed just last summer and is already booked for Wakarusa. They are headlining a show at Higher Ground in Burlington, Vermont's best venue, so they'll be well-known in their home state soon. Thanks for being ahead of the curve and taking notice of them. "Bitter Blood" is a fine debut album and why Grace Potter called them the "band to watch for in 2011".

Re: “SXSW's brave new world

Hacienda played here a couple years back, either the Rocket Room or the Black Sheep. Good to see they are still working at it

Re: “The Ballad of Johnny Smith

Hello, Johnny, Happy Birthday.

Thank you for having Howard at your first seminar. Was it 1968? I think so. He looked at me (I was 22) and said "I know you." We had met when I worked at United Recording in the summer of 1967, 20 years old, in heaven with my heroes.

The memories have served me well.

He was the best,

John Amaral
