Pika Radio is celebrating our 100th episode!!!! We discovered a “damn fine cup of coffee” called New Mexico Pinon Coffee during a quick summer road trip. We were surprised to find out that they are the official coffee sponsor for The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. NM Pinon Coffee is our new “best friend” in the morning and we hope they will become yours, too. Our own local author, Joel Diehl Sensei will be signing his new book, A Matter of Being, September 15th, 5-7pm and October 20th, 5-8pm at The Hemp Store. Want to hear some live music? We tell you the hotspots for the weekend. But what about “dead spots”? We take you to Manitou Springs’s Crystal Valley Cemetery for a little shame review of late-night human visitors. We tell you about the restoration of the little chapel building (National Register of Historic Places, 1882) and a few of our famous, forever, historic residents; Tom O’Neil (the Colorado Mummy), Dr. Isaac Davis, and the Union General Charles Adams (Meeker Massacre). A great site to check out for other legionary figures HERE.
Up and coming “Outside Our Village” segment- Nessa Alexander Begg Robertson tells us what it is like to work in one of the most haunted castles in Scotland, Pittodrie House. We found Andy Barnard that has moved from Scotland to the U.S. to become a Colorado Officer. Offended by a new trend to be a witch? We will found one to let her vent about the “sisterhood” tend.
*Thank you to Woji for providing our intro music!
Howdy, everyone. This weeks episode is all about our village of Manitou Springs and what is going on today. We fill you in on the September happenings at the Library. Then we bring you interviews from two great businesses that make Manitou what it is today, Anna's Apothecary and Goldminer's Candy. We hope you enjoy.
Tune in to hear the latest episodes...
General Charles Adams, Back row, right. 1880.
