The Art of Song

Josh Ritter teaching a class at Song School

Each August – just prior to the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons – there is a quiet, but exhilarating week when aspiring singer-songwriters, poets, lay people, and others gather to study with some of the best and brightest in acoustic music to further the art of the song.

Though the majority of my radio experience has been in the commercial sector (from Colorado to Utah to Alaska), my radio was always tuned to the public station... I am an NPR junkie. I was blessed to work with some truly amazing and creative people in radio since my first professional job in the industry during my freshman year in college. That blessing has continued by being part of the family of one of the most incredible radio stations (and staff) in the country - KUNC.
