Karen Grey on The Inner Game

Aug 30, 2016

Gwen Garcelon hosts a new public affairs show at KDNK. It's called The Inner Game and it's all about a particular relationship – the one we have with ourselves. The Inner Game features conversations with community and business leaders about how they grow personally to make a bigger difference in the world through the strength and health of their relationships and organizations. Each of us has a purpose and The Inner Game is about the relationship we have with that purpose and how we contribute to a more beautiful world.

ARTIST INTERVIEWS

Grizzly Goat In-Studio

Grizzly Goat visited Express Yourself before two local gigs, at Glenwood Brew Garden and Steve's Guitars, and blew us all away with their music. Their melodies are memorable, they definitely have an easy and precise way with a lyric, their harmonies are super-tight, and they are all multi-instrumentalists--their musicianship is superb. They played Gentle Wild Spaces, Colorado and Little Jackie. Colorado was the highlight of the week for this reviewer. Look for them to return in August and also search out their new album Burning the Prairie.
