Best Commitment to Local Music by a Commercial Radio Station (2005)
A lot of for-profit radio outlets talk a good game about supporting local bands and musicians, but it's mostly lip service. The Mountain is an exception to this rule. On The Mountain Homegrown Show, a specialty program that airs Mondays at 10 p.m., host Jake Schroeder, of Opie Gone Bad renown, spotlights performances and interviews with prominent local talent. As a bonus, the station also sponsors regular showcases for these folks at venues like Bender's Tavern, and it sprinkles tunes by Coloradans into its regular playlist.
