Stefanie hails from Brooklyn, NY where she got to see some of the greatest concerts a
girl could see. Stefanie got her start in radio at WSIA in the early 90s. After moving around
in her early 20s and always going back to NYC, she finally moved to Colorado in 2002 never
looking back. Within weeks of moving to Colorado, Stefanie signed up with KGNU Boulder and
volunteered there for 10 years, off and on, taking a hiatus while she founded her own café and
bakery in Nederland.
It was in Ned, at her bakery, where Stefanie met her husband and began a family a few years
later. Once her first daughter was born, she sold her business and bought a home in Denver.
After spending 9 years in Denver, watching it grow and become a place similar to Brooklyn,
Stefanie knew that she wanted to get out of the once “cute, little city” to avoid being in a big
“My love of music runs deep,” she says. From blues and classic rock to alternative rock and
traditional jazz, to some obscure stuff like The Residents and Pain Teens, Stefanie enjoys most
genres as long as there is the talent rooted in it.
You can hear Stefanie Tuesdays on KLZR on Rockin’ The Range from noon – 2pm.
Growing up in Texas, DJ Skippy Diggler was exposed to all things music. The Austin live music scene was full of everything from Stevie Ray Vaughan to Willie Nelson to alternative dance music. Now spending half time here in Colorado, having the opportunity to share 80’s music with the Valley is “totally awesome!” The range of music genres is enormous. Recently, Skippy has been learning acoustic guitar and loves playing for friends around the campfire. Who knows what the future brings, but he remains open to all things music and enjoying new friends and experiences in the Valley!
TC leans to the acoustic side in her taste but surprises abound. She takes particular pleasure in turning down requests.
Myron hangs out at Rockin’ The Range when he isn’t fixing something else that has broken in the studio.
Cameron is one of our most experienced DJs and is the only graduate from the former Custer County Youth Radio program currently on the air.

Jon is an avid record collector, local musician (drums), and happily retired full time Westcliffian. His show, “Chillwave Lounge,” airs Sundays from 4 – 6 pm 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.
