Very sad

WOXY is calling it quits (more here), unless there's someone who can buy it or there's some other miracle.

I started listening to WOXY on FM when I lived in Cincinnati in 1998. The station kept its indie rock spirit alive by going online after its spot on the FM dial was sold. When money got tight, it found angel investors and started asking listeners to pay for memberships. But WOXY still let fans listen free (members got better quality sound) and never seemed to be anywhere close to getting as many paying subscribers as it wanted each month.

Pooh. I think I'm in denial

JonBenet suspect sips bubbly in business class

I can't make this up. The AP got a seat on the plane from Thailand to the US along with JonBenet slaying suspect John Mark Karr. He got to fly business class, Jocelyn Gecker reports.

Thanks to JonBenet, Don Vito's arrest on accusations of inappropriate touching on two kids isn't getting more attention. He's supposed to have an advisement hearing tomorrow morning in Jefferson County, and twerpy promises to cover it.

Meanwhile the suspect in JonBenet's killing is on his way to LA from Thailand as we speak after Thai authorities expelled him. Reporters from around the world are wandering around Boulder today wondering when he'll be sent to Colorado. Experts are discussing evidence collected from the crime scene, but if suspect John Karr's ex-wife has proof she was with him NOT in Colorado over the Christmas holidays in 1996, all that talk will be moot.


In the meantime, school is starting, summer is nearing the end. The film series at Red Rocks has its last film Thursday...and it's "Old School!" There's an informal tailgate for Big Ten alumni in the Upper Lot before Opie Gone Bad starts performing at 7:30.

See Kid Rock free

CEDIA Expo 2006, where the latest tech for the home is shown off, is in Denver this year, and believe it or not, they got Kid Rock to perform. Tix are first-come first-served at a kiosk outside the lecture hall of the Colorado Convention Center. I'm not sure if you have to be going to the expo to get a Kid Rock ticket. Anyways, Kid Rock performs Sat., 9/16, at 10 p.m., if you're into the bawitdaba

Al Gore

"An Incovenient Truth" is still in theaters. Al Gore will be in Denver and signing copies of his book by the same name this Saturday at the Tattered Cover downtown, 16th and Wynkoop. Noon to 1 p.m.

It's interesting timing, because a Colorado utility has given money to a scientist who disagrees with Gore's ideas on global warming. The AP has more.
