Special Holiday Programming

Dec 23, 2020

Christmas Eve from 8 p.m. until midnight, listen for Tinsel Tales from NPR. We continue with the well-loved NPR holiday tradition of extraordinary Christmas stories that will transport you to unexpected places. People from NPR's past and present tell stories of the season--some tales are funny; some are touching; some are insightful or irreverent or nostalgic or surprising. You might recognize them from our broadcast archives — or you might fall in love with them for the first time.

  Morning Edition host Renee Montagne moderated several big picture discussions during last week’s ideas festival, and also stopped by Aspen Public Radio to meet listeners and speak about her career during our lawn party June 30th. She also touched on the polarized rhetoric throughout the presidential primaries - a continued result of years of diminished cultural dialog.

Pitkin County is considering management changes in its latest update plan for the popular Rio Grande Trail. The plan examines the upper half of the 42 mile trail, from Emma to Aspen.

Under the plan, signs would be updated, trail connections, such as from the Aspen Village neighborhood to the trail, would be improved and a policy for special events may be developed.
