Myron hangs out at the Rockin’ The Range time of day when he isn’t fixing something else that has broken in the studio.
Jon is an avid record collector, local musician (drums), and happily retired full time Westcliffian. His show on Friday’s from 2-4pm is the Chillwave Lounge and tends to highlight newer bands/artists who operate on a downtempo wavelength. As long as it has a “chill” feel, you may hear tunes that cut across multiple styles; expect psychedelia, pop, americana, reverb soaked folk, funk, and shoegaze. So make yourself a nice cup of non caffeinated tea and Chillax to some newer music.

Sandi plays punk rock and related music (the connection may not always be obvious, but it’s there). You can expect to hear some Sex Pistols, Ramones, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Stray Cats on any given Wednesday listening to her show. Her love of music runs deeper and is far more diverse than what you may hear. Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Doc Watson and Chopin are essential players. She moved to Westcliffe in 2003 to get back to the mountains after a brief stint in the flats. In addition to sharing music, she enjoys photography, helps friends and neighbors with TNR and other animal rescue efforts, and makes her living as a freelance writer.

Joanie grew up in New Jersey, just a stones throw from NYC where she attended an abundance of symphony, R&B, jazz, blues and folk concerts from a very young age. Her exposure to numerous Broadway and off Broadway musical shows added to her mix of musical experiences. To add to the mix, she would lie awake late at night and listen to bluegrass on her radio. As an adult, her tastes for music moved towards R&B and Jazz. Like most DJs at KLZR, Joanie started with Music Your Way. She now hosts Soul Jam, a program that showcases a lot of Motown, R&B and Soul music. Joanie is a founding board member of Wet Mountain Broadcasting Corp. She started and is responsible for the annual High Peaks Music Festival. As the KLZR Development Director she oversees all Outreach, PR and Fundraising efforts and encourages others to become involved, either on the air or behind the scenes. While not volunteering for one thing or another she spends time with her family and friends and loves tending her flower garden, weaving, knitting and exploring her family’s genealogy.
Steve and his wife, Lissa, moved to the valley in 2005 to serve Community United Methodist Church. He retired in 2011 and found some time to host Celtic and Beyond the 2nd Monday of the month. Steve has been a fan of all music since his birth; but in the last 40 years he has developed a real hunger for all things traditional and new in the Celtic world. He still loves most kinds of music, but specializes in traditional folk from Western Europe and Appalachia. He plays the mountain dulcimer and hammer dulcimer and many other instruments, although he admits he is master of none.
Jack performs locally with his acoustic guitar tuned in a manner designed to confuse accompanists.
David plays classical music putting it into the context of its times, its history and its geography. The compositions encompass everything from the deadly serious to the totally ridiculous, as he likes to say. Each two hour program features music from multiple time periods and compositional types. He is also a fan of Broadway music and ethnic folk music. He was born in Los Angeles and lived in Southern California until moving to Westcliffe. A music major in college, he works as a database and web programmer for a major bank. David is an active board member of In Concert, which brings classical music to the Valley. He says “I like eating so it follows that I also enjoy cooking”. He also enjoys hiking in the wilderness, which makes his choice of the Wet Mountain Valley a great location. David hosts Sunday Classics Sundays 8PM – 4PM.
