Mountain Edition is Aspen Public Radio's weekly newsmagazine. The weekly, thirty-minute show airs Thurdays at 3:30pm just before NPR's All Things Considered.  The show focuses on news, analysis, and commentary about Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley. Each week the Aspen Public Radio news department will examine the most significant issues and events affecting us in the Valley. The program will include news stories and features reported by APR reporters and contributors. The show will present moderated analysis of the news from guests and regular segments focused on the arts, music, and profiles of people and events of interest to residents of the Roaring Fork Valley

Here's an archive of recent shows:
