Express Yourself


Carbondale and the Roaring Fork Valley are full of creative artists expressing themselves. And there is no shortage of nationally renowned touring acts visiting the many venues here. It all adds up to a crowded entertainment scene. KDNK's Express Yourself program highlights the many cultural offerings available to us. This is the program to listen to if you're curious about the latest theatre production in the local schools or the latest and greatest nationally touring band to visit a local stage. Live music, in-depth interviews and the occasional giggle. Express Yourself is enlightening, entertaining and informative. 4:00 on Friday afternoons.More from Express Yourself »
