DENVER - Twenty-five years of in-studio performances will be celebrated with 18 new songs from the KBCO Studio C vault.
On Saturday, 97.3 KBCO will release its annual charity CD featuring music recorded live on the radio from the Boulder/Denver radio station's performance studio, KBCO Studio C.
KBCO has hosted thousands of intimate KBCO Studio C sessions with artists and bands from all over the world for 25 years. The KBCO Studio C 25th Anniversary CD will feature performances as far back as 1994 with the Dave Matthews Band along with songs recorded over the last year from artists like Imagine Dragons, Phoenix, Capital Cities and Phillip Phillips. The CD will benefit the Boulder County AIDS Project and Food Bank of the Rockies.
The limited edition CD will be available Saturday at 8 a.m. at all seven Paul's TV located inside Furniture Row and at Denver Mattress in Boulder. There will be a limit of two CDs per person, and the collection will be sold for $12.
Traditionally, the annual CD release sells out in less than a day, with avid KBCO Studio C fans lining up before sunrise to get their copies of the coveted charity disc.
Proceeds from the sale of the KBCO Studio C 25th Anniversary CD will benefit the Food Bank of the Rockies and Boulder County AIDS Project
"Only 32 percent of those living with HIV in the US have achieved viral suppression. The funds raised by KBCO through Studio C CD sales help BCAP's HIV care and prevention programs reach those who are not aware they are living with HIV or who are in need of help accessing the care and treatment they need to thrive. Our ultimate goal is to end the transmission of HIV in our lifetime. Until we accomplish this incredible achievement, BCAP works to empower individuals, families and communities affected by HIV/AIDS. All of us at BCAP are exceedingly proud and grateful to be a part of this fun community of dedicated listeners and music lovers." Ana Hopperstad, Executive Director at BCAP (Boulder County AIDS Project), said.
"When we visit with clients at our hunger relief partner agencies, it's clear that so many of our neighbors are struggling to make ends meet. One in seven Coloradans struggle to make ends meet and we're honored to partner with KBCO in providing hunger relief and hope. Every dollar turns into four meals through Food Bank of the Rockies, so the support of KBCO listeners makes a significant impact," Kevin Seggelke, President and CEO of Food Bank of the Rockies, said.
