Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

Crash Course

The University of Colorado just got an F in music appreciation.

Next week, the dean of the College of Arts & Media at CU Denver will lead a tour of CAM's classrooms. "As the first college in Colorado devoted entirely to arts and entertainment," the school's announcement boasts, "CAM combines the latest technology with traditional methods and art forms, proving it truly is at the intersection of art making, technology and commerce."

But at this intersection, CAM officials could use a crash course in current music appreciation. Because their announcement also promises that you can see the studios "where the now-famous Colorado band The Frey formed."

A band not quite as famous as The Fray, however. -- Patricia Calhoun
