You may remember Crystal Bowersox as the American Idol runner up in 2010—and for those of you who don’t follow the show that’s a big, big deal.
 
Since then the Toledo, Ohio native has released two albums of original material, performed and recorded with all kinds of folks ranging from Blues Traveler (both on record and at Red Rocks) to BB King to Cheryl Crow and earned all kinds of respect along the way for her songs, her voice and her passion. She’s played the Ellen DeGeneres show and the Tonight Show and is slated to portray Patsy Cline in a Broadway show about the legendary country singer.
 
Her truly soulful latest album, All That for This, was produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, who has produced a ton of great artists, from Angelique Kidjo to Faith No More to Jackie Greene, and features a raft of top-notch musicians. And an appearance by Jakob Dylan.
 
Crystal has a five-song EP set for release in June and will be touring throughout the summer.

Thank You!

Please take a moment today to make your financial contribution and know that the quality programming you hear on APR is the direct result of your support.

Year in and year out, we provide a place on the dial – and now on the web – where civil discourse is valued and encouraged. On APR, you can hear about the news and events in the valley, across the state, the country, and the world.

Moscow… Ukraine…Crimea…Gaza…The West Bank…Chechnya…Iraq…Afghanistan…India: Philip Reeves has covered them all for NPR and he’s coming to the Roaring Fork Valley! Philip Reeves and Loren Jenkins will dissect the complicated, messy, noisy and violent hot spots of our planet.  

The Thompson Divide prompted conflicting statements by environmental groups and Garfield County this week. Avalanche danger has been sketchy lately because of certain unusual factors.  And if a snow slide happens inside a ski area, turns out the resort isn’t to blame. A Basalt advisor wins an award for her work with female investors. We say goodbye to a member of the Aspen Public Radio family, lost too soon.  And, we’ll wrap up our coverage of Aspen area athletes going to the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of long-time, beloved “Jazz from Aspen” host Don Voltmer. He was 78.

A Detroit native and graduate of Michigan State University, Voltmer lived and worked in Cleveland for IBM for four years before moving to Aspen from Denver in 1972.

Voltmer said that his love of jazz started at age 12 when he heard the big band sounds of Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller. He began filling in on air on Aspen Public Radio on Thursday evenings in February 1998 for another long-time jazz host, Stu Huck.

In his station bio, Voltmer said playing jazz on Aspen Public Radio had always been a “…great time for the three hours I get to play my kind of jazz, and I hope it shows. Many thanks to all our listeners who have become members of Aspen Public Radio with each fund drive!”

Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.
