KBCO Makes Good On Its Charity Commitments

Each year during the holidays, CLEAR CHANNEL Triple A KBCO/DENVER releases a charity CD of live recordings culled from its Studio CD performances-- and 2010 saw Volume 22 of the series. It was being sold exclusively at ULTIMATE ELECTRONICS and the proceeds were to benefit the BOULDER COUNTY AIDS PROJECT and FOOD BANK OF THE ROCKIES.
Unfortunately, ULTIMATE ELECTRONICS filed bankruptcy three weeks ago and did not give the money from the sales of the CD to KBCO (reportedly $360,000). Well, the station has decided to make good on its commitments and just wrote checks for $80,000 to the BOULDER COUNTY AIDS PROJECT and $20,000 to the FOOD BANK OF THE ROCKIES.
BOULDER COUNTY AIDS PROJECT Dir./Development DAN HANLEY told the Boulder Daily Camera, "That they would pay us even though they didn’t get the money from ULTIMATE ELECTRONICS just does not surprise me. KBCO is so committed to our community."
Featured artists on the latest "Live from Studio C" included THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, JAKOB DYLAN, JAY FARRAR AND BENJAMIN GIBBARD, GOO GOO DOLLS, RAY LAMONTAGNE AND THE PARIAH DOG, NATALIE MERCHANT, PHOENIX and CORINNE BAILEY RAE, among others.
