While in Colorado Springs this July, I stopped by Pikes Peak Community College's radio station KEPC 89.7 FM. Focused on training students for careers in radio, the station airs an alternative music format. As students proceed through their coursework in the school's Radio & Television Program, they have opportunities to get on the air, with some hosting regular shows. Around since the 1970s, KEPC also had some historical artifacts at the station, including vintage carts, reel-to-reels and even some transcription discs.
