Sonic ID Library

Sonic ID Library

In 2022, Aspen Public Radio launched an initiative to build, catalog, and archive an original “Sonic ID” audio library to preserve the diverse sound heritage of our mountain communities—and advance the station’s reputation as a community connector and innovator. Aspen Public Radio listeners can hear these audio vignettes on 91.5FM and 88.9FM throughout the broadcast schedule. Click here to learn more about the project.

We encourage the community to share feedback and ideas for building out the library by calling the radio station with your ideas (970.920.9000) or emailing us at: sonics@aspenpublicradio.org using the subject line, “Sonic ID Library.”

This initiative is sponsored in part by the Aspen Chamber Resort Association.
  • The Roaring Fork River gives our valley its name. It's 70 miles long and flows through several canyons. Sourced from Independence Lake, it flows west through Aspen, Woody Creek, Basalt, and Carbondale, with its mouth located in Glenwood Springs. Listen to the summer sounds of the Roaring Fork River.
  • The Carbondale Mountain Fair features over 145 art and food vendors as well as free live music, competitions and fun for the whole family. Listen to the sounds of the crowd cheering and axes hitting at the Women’s Wood Splitting contest at the 2022 Mountain Fair.
  • Taking place on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., rain or shine, the Snowmass Rodeo is the longest running rodeo in Colorado, celebrating its 48th season in 2022. Listen to the sounds of team roping, petting zoos, saddle bronc riding, and bull riding from the Snowmass Rodeo.
  • Located just 10 miles west of Aspen, up Maroon Creek Road off Highway 82, stands the 14,000-foot peaks known as the Maroon Bells. While the Maroon Bells are touted as the most photographed place in Colorado, pictures simply don’t do the peaks justice. Listen to the sounds of traveling to the beautiful Maroon Bells Scenic Area.
