Amy Kimberly from Carbondale Arts was our guest on this morning's Nonprofit Spotlight. She says: "We feel these airwaves are important, they connect us, they get information out there that's important, they allow creativity and freedom. There are so many kids that have grown up here on KDNK who are absolutely some of my most favorite adults.  They are the ones that are holding the spirit of the community for the future. I really think that KDNK is a huge part of that. We hope people keep this station thriving."

ARTIST INTERVIEWS

Elephant Revival Live on KDNK

One of the quintessential Colorado bands dropped by KDNK on their way to their sold out Wheeler gig. They didn't have to do that! Especially ahead of a sold-out gig. But they did, and that is a testament to their good-hearted decency. And it's a testament to their support of Community Radio in Colorado. They played a couple tunes from their new CD Petals, Season Song and Home in Your Heart. And they played a couple older tunes, Remember a Beginning and Rogue River.
