Express Yourself
FRIDAYS 4:00 to 5:00 PM

Carbondale and the Roaring Fork Valley are full of creative artists expressing themselves. And Carbondale Creative District is a hub of artistic activity. Express Yourself is hosted by a team of creatives from the District, reporting on all the latest artistic happenings. That team is led by Amy Kimberly and includes Brian Colley, Aly Sanguilly, Kat Rich, Staci Dickerson, and KDNK staff. The show is focused on Roaring Fork events but travels beyond the valley to seek out interesting creatives and communities doing good work in the 21st century. Express Yourself is enlightening, entertaining and informative. Hear it at 4:00 on Friday afternoons.
