OpenAir - Sample New and Old Music with a bit of Colorado Flavor
The focus for this new station is new Indie Rock. In the email I received recently CPR said: “Explore new music and new possibilities on OpenAir.” They go on to say that “OpenAir will provide a comprehensive music experience focusing on new and recent music of the past 15 years with a Colorado perspective.”
I dropped in on OpenAir to give it a listen and was pleasantly surprised to hear a wide variety of music from Judy Collins and Aretha Franklin, Tom Waits, Beach Boys to lots of music unknown to me which I surprisingly enjoyed.
And recently, OpenAir published a list of the staff picks of 2011 and the Top 100 Albums of 2011:
- Fleet Foxes, Helplessness Blues
- Radiohead, The King of Limbs
- Tennis, Cape Dory
- Feist, Metals
- Devotchka, 100 Lovers
OpenAir in the news:
They play “new music you’ve never heard and old music you never thought you’d hear again.” Not many people listen to AM radio anymore, do they? Now I hope I've given you a reason to go back to AM radio, at least to try OpenAir! I think it's worth trying it out. Have a listen, see what you think.
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
