On this episode of Express Yourself, Morgan Neely and Cody Lee host. They welcome American Feather who performed at True Nature Healing Arts as a part of the Peace Garden Series. Then, The Town of Carbondale's Jamie Wall chats about Our Town, One Table followed by performances from The Cowboy Corral. Sky Skinner chats about the 10x10 silent auction from The ArtBASE. Finally, Ronnie McCoury from the Travelin' McCourys is interviewed by KDNK Music Director Cody Lee.

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 Sanguily, 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.

Morgan is KDNK's News Director. He comes to KDNK with public radio passion and experience. He was a news host, reporter, and opps guy at APR and also worked with Pitkin County for a couple of years. He says that getting back to public radio and reporting is where he wants to be.
That's me in 1984...Doing the same thing I enjoy most today...Listening to Music. From childhood, I was exposed to South Texas honky-tonks, my great-grand mother's Bob Wills and Ernest Tubb records, and the ever-vibrant, Live Music scene of Austin. I love most all music and don't care much for how people want to "classify" it. For me, Music has ALWAYS been dangerous, provocative, and the most powerful healing force on Earth. I love Jazz because it's complex, defiant, and improvisational. I love most Roots music for it's purity and soul (and that's Reggae, Folk, R&B, Rock...whatever you wanna call it). I love Hip-Hop for it's unique cultural language that is infused into it's Jazz & R&B roots. (Even Louis Armstrong was a rapper). What I dislike is music marketed to the masses that shortcuts quality and complexity, programmed drumbeats, auto-tuned voices, etc.
