Memories of the Aspen area: FM stations might have hiccups; Limelight Snowmass postpones beer dinners
FM signals are boosted with the new tower
Work to replace a 50-year-old radio tower could cause static electricity to listeners over the next two weeks, as Pitkin County removes and renovates equipment at Upper Red Mountain radio tower Road to improve radio service in Aspen.
County officials said in a statement Friday that the work was part of the scheduled maintenance at this site and involved the gutting and replacement of equipment inside the bunker shelter that houses the transmission devices. . In the summer of 2022, the solar panels powering the site should be replaced.
In Aspen, radio stations KSPN 102.7, KDNK 88.3, KAJX 91.1 and 91.5, KTND 93.5 and KLXV 89.9 will be down for about 2 weeks, officials said. Many of these stations can be broadcast online and most are also rebroadcast on Jack Rabbit Ridge or from their own nearby direct broadcast, which covers the Aspen / Woody Creek / Snowmass village area.

Limelight launches dinner event
The Limelight Snowmass canceled its July 14-28 specialty dinners, citing a lack of staff to produce the events.
The summer series of seven pairing dinners kicked off on June 30 with a Southern-style dinner with the Telluride Brewery and was scheduled to run through the end of August. The canceled events are a Beers & Brats event with Upslope Brewing Company (July 14) and a meal combining fried chicken and Chandon Sparkling Wines (July 28). The last events of the summer, which will take place on August 4, 11 and 25, remain on the program. More information on limelighthotels.com
