8 How Did He Get A Radio Show? By Peter Boyles My first job in talk radio was with the now legendary KWBZ. I worked there with the best, Alan Berg, Bill Barker, Mike Rosen, Woody Paige, Irv Brown and Garry Tessler. It was the Mother of all waters, the mother of all battles, the place where we all learned how to do talk radio. I was a traffic reporter, a job I called counting cars, while I was in college and grad school. I got my break in the business as a disc jockey when I was offered a job at KAAT radio by the late Jack Merker. He told me I was funny, smart and had a weird voice and since I was such a great traffic reporter I d make a great disc jockey. I had never been in a radio station in my life. The first time I saw all the bells and whistles, turntables and cart machines, I was overwhelmed and amazed. I heard a little voice that said, Where have you been, we ve been waiting for you. I was taught radio by the men from the golden age of broadcasting. There were no women and if there was one she had a job at the front desk or in the traffic department and was known as the girl. Contrast that with today where everybody I work for in this business is a woman. The guys who showed me the way came through the creation of television that helped destroy radio and had learned all the underhanded ways of the business. They had survived the payola scandals, divorces, wrecked cars and psychotic bosses. For me, that made it a wonderland. Being a disc jockey was the most fun I ve ever had in my life. When I worked with Bob Lee on the now legendary Lee and Boyles morning Show on KLAK, I went from driving a leaky, 1963 green Volkswagen Bug to a brand new Corvette from Spedding Chevrolet. I knew a good time when I saw it. Alcohol pretty much ruined a lot of those times. I was offered a job in talk radio. I was told by the old hams I was going to spend the rest of my life talking to little old ladies with blue hair. Not even close! We used to see the station owner every day. Today I ve never even met him. We used to work without delays, and a couple of different times, I actually stood to fight in the street against some Denver Klansmen and I saw my best friend murdered. Talk radio became mainstream to such a degree that people actually began to take it seriously and attack it. As someone smarter then me once said, If you re catching a lot of flack, you must be over the target. This business has been so wonderful to me and my family; I could never begin to pay it back. No one knows what the future of this business is going to bring, newspapers are in trouble, television networks face enormous problems, and talk radio, along with all other forms of traditional media has an uncertain future. But, some place in Denver, New York or Pittsburgh there is a baby being born who is obviously going to be the next big thing. Rock and roll and Talk Radio will never die. I thank everybody for making this wonderful business what it is today.

12 Ready For Summer! By John Cretti Rocky Mountain Horticulturist and Garden Author It happens every year around this time: questions on my radio show (Gardening & Living with an Altitude Saturday mornings on KHOW - 8 to 9 am) about growing a regional favorite- the quaking aspen tree. The mountain tree of Colorado is a very alluring tree in every sense with its shimmering heartshaped leaves that tremble or quake in the lightest breeze. Quaking aspens are widely used in the home landscape and grow quickly, maybe too rapidly for some. But who can resist the bright yellow leaves in the autumn, which glimmer in the sunlight against the stark white bark? Aspens are closely related to poplar trees, such as Lombardy and Silver poplar trees, thus their rapid growth rate, extensive root exploration, and high water demand. Quaking aspen trees will bear catkins in the spring. The female trees will produce the fine cotton that is dispersed by the wind. In nature, quaking aspens are quick to spread into areas that were destroyed by fire. Quick is the enticement that makes landscapers choosing this species when you need a tree for height, and you want it fast! However, be forewarned; aspen trees will become invasive and their powerful root system will send out suckers everywhere in the landscape. When you decide to plant a grouping of aspen trees; spring is one of the best times to plant. Select a site that is in full sun and the soil is well drained. If your soil is clay, amend it with compost, sphagnum peat moss, or a combination of both these organic amendments. The planting site should have good air circulation to reduce the incidence of leaf diseases. To keep aspen trees growing healthy and vigorously, don t let them become stressed. Provide weekly watering throughout the growing season, particularly during prolonged, hot, dry spells. Since aspen are shallow-rooted trees, water them with a frog-eye sprinkler placed at the dripline (the area where the outermost branches extend). Run the sprinkler for 15 to 20 minutes or until it begins to runoff, then move the sprinkler to another location until you have completed soaking around the root zone. Aspen trees that have become stressed from drought, insect invasion, sunscald, herbicide injury, weed trimmer damage, defoliation by fungi, hail damage, or overwatering, are more susceptible to various diseases. One of the most fatal to the trees is canker. The symptoms of Cytospora canker show up as reddish-orange to blackened areas on the bark of the trunk and on branches. It is very common to see oozing sap in spring. Advanced stages of the disease include sunken dead spots in the bark with typical pinhead-sized black speckles or pimples. In the spring, these pimples produce spores (the fruiting bodies) which ooze out as coiled, thread-like, orange tendrils. This allows the disease to spread to open wounds and continue the disease cycle. It may be necessary to remove an entire tree if it is severely infected. Prune when the weather conditions are dry. Keep your pruning tools clean by disinfecting them with a ninety percent rubbing alcohol or a spray disinfectant. Growing trees is not an exact science, but it does require an understanding of their specific growth habits and requirements. Just reviewing that information will help you select types that will meet your specific needs and level of care. Just remember, pick the right tree for the right place and you will be rewarded with beauty and shade for many years to come.

14 Downtown Denver Everything Is Waiting For You This Summer By Craig Silverman Being in the suburbs is alright. However, it is exciting to broadcast every weekday on Denver s Talk Station. I am proud to be a fourth generation Denverite, a graduate of Denver Public Schools, and to have worked sixteen years for the Denver DA s Office. One of my favorite trial moments was watching a prosecutorial colleague ask a witness where she was from, to which she replied, Denver. The next question was, What part of Denver? The answer was, Aurora. You get the idea. I work downtown and have throughout my professional career. If you have never been to the Capitol, go down, and take your kids. It is beautiful and historic. From the west steps, look down east at the City and County Building there is no finer view of the Queen City of the Plains. Civic Center Park is a vast expanse of greenery which will be dramatically changed in the next few years. That City and County Building is where the Denver courts are located (some will move in a couple years to the new Justice Center on West Colfax) and it is a magnificent building chock full of history from the last ninety years. Look to the south between Broadway and Lincoln and you will see the Colorado State Judicial Building. This is where the results of my bar examination were posted in Thank goodness I passed because I had contemplated running up that building s unusual and accessible exterior slope from the ground to the roof and jumping off if I had failed. Across the street is the old and new Denver Public Library Central Branch. The outside is architecturally splendid and the inside has enough material to keep you fascinated for years. Keep your eyes going west from there and you will see the Denver Art Museum which is recently expanded and awesome. On the north side of the Capitol is the most significant street in Denver Colfax Avenue. It is appropriate that this avenue of dreams and nightmares cuts through downtown Denver. Check out the old West Side Court Building at 924 West Colfax. Before we moved to 303 W. Colfax, the Denver DA s Office was located at that intersection of Colfax and Speer. I like the idea that the new Justice Center will still be touching Colfax. My grandfather Harry Silverman was a brilliant Denver lawyer who worked at th Street in central downtown. I remember from my youth the revolving doors and the cigar smoke at the Symes Building which is now over one hundred years old. My grandpa and his son Sheldon (my Dad) were among the legion of lawyers smoking stogies in that historic building. It s a wonder it never burned down. Back in my grandpa s day, that old West Side Court Building had courthouses that witnessed some very memorable Denver moments. Perhaps the most famous was the incarceration and trial of Denver s worst mass murderer, John Gilbert Graham, who got tried and executed for blowing up a United Airlines plane to kill his mom for insurance money. For those with an interest, read the excellent history contained in Mainliner Denver by Denver attorney/author and 630 KHOW guest Andrew J. Field. When I first started as a Deputy DA, I rented a studio apartment at Brooks Towers at 15th and Curtis. I watched with fascination the construction of the 16th Street Mall. Gone was the 16th Street of my youth where the Denver and Paramount movie theatres were the spot to see the latest flick. Of course, we would go to the Denham on 18th Street to see the big movie musicals like My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music. I work, eat, and play in the magnificent diversity of Lodo. Spend a summer day on the marked walking tour. The lower you go, the more history you'll discover. The Riverfront Park area is vibrant with shops, restaurants, historical exhibits, people and their dogs, and romantic couples holding hands. You don't have to live there to enjoy it. The 16th Street Free Mall Shuttle goes all the way to Wewatta Street. Want to spend a fantastic summer Day? See downtown Denver. Everything's waiting for you.

22 Around the House by Ken Moon Air Conditioning Without An Air Conditioner Hot attics are a drag. It's the reason you toss and turn after hot, sunny days. Even worse, if you have air conditioning, the cooling masks an overly hot attic. That leads to much higher cooling costs. One idea I like-- whether you have central air or not--is a whole house fan. It installs in a hole in the central hallway of your house. It's air conditioning "on the cheap", because it draws cool evening air through the windows and blows it out through the attic, purging the day's dose of super-heated air. It's a great way to cool any house or as a supplement to central air conditioning. You'll probably need to add some more attic ventilation (see below) to accommodate the large volumetric air flow of the fan. You can buy one at a home center, or you can hire one of the handyman services to install one. Another trick to get a cooler house is to run the furnace's fan continuously when you get home in the afternoon. It works well in any home with a full basement-- like a 4-level or ranch style. Those lower levels are usually 10 degrees or so cooler than the upstairs, so it helps to mix up the two air masses via circulation through the furnace. After 20 minutes or so, the upstairs will be several degrees cooler and the basement correspondingly a little warmer. Attic Ventilation For the last 30 years or so- -because of our increased preoccupation with saving energy-attic ventilation has been installed at the bare minimum to just meet the building code. The result? Most houses need more vents to lower summertime temperatures and so reduce cooling costs and increase comfort. One idea is to buy a remote-reading digital thermometer to monitor the temperature up there. If it runs 120 degrees or more on hot days, you've got work to do. When you install a new roof, consider a ridge vent. A gap is cut in the sheathing along the entire length of the roof 's peak. Then the ridge vent--usually a plastic or aluminum strip system with screened openings--is installed over the slit. Some styles can 22 even be hidden under the shingles. Evaporative Coolers Evaporative coolers--called "swamp" coolers by most folks--need only a good cleaning this year. They accumulate dust and dirt on their insides over the winter season, no matter how tightly they've been shrouded. Scrub and hose out the reservoir and clean parts that have accumulated mineral salts with some white vinegar. Also, it's vital that you replace the evaporative media each year with a new set. They are ground-up wood fibers--generally aspen-- in a frame holder that evaporate water from their tiny surfaces and so cool the incoming air. Avoid the socalled permanent versions. They are usually a plastic, foam-like material that's a little pricey for my taste. If there are lubrication cups on the cooler fan motor, you can squeeze a little light oil into each. Finally, check the pump, incoming water float valve and associated hoses, to make sure they are intact and operate properly.

23 Gutters, Downspouts, And Drainage Summer rains are right around the corner. Water has more impact on the structure---and therefore the value---of your house than anything else. Check the slope around the foundation. Minimally, you need 1-inch of fall for each foot away. This is the ideal time of year to make modifications in slopes and drainage elements around the house: the ground is no longer frozen and isn't nearly as wet as it will be soon. Also, extend all of your downspouts at least 6 feet away--or to the closest gravity outfall--with that black, polyethylene flex pipe. Use the 3-inch, non-perforated style. You can buy fittings, like wyes and tees to connect several spouts together; for more than 2 spouts in one pipe, increase the diameter to 4-inch. Flex piping can be buried to keep it out of the way, but be scrupulous when sloping it. If you leave any "bellies" in the pipe, it will freeze and block up in cold weather. It's important--once or twice each summer--to walk around your house WHILE IT'S RAINING. Our summer showers come and go so quickly that checking the yard after the fact doesn't give you an accurate picture of your drainage scheme. So, grab an umbrella (provided lightning is not nearby!) and inspect all the drainage elements and systems around your house. Look for overflowing gutters, which may have plugged up. Also, are the downspouts directing water well away from the foundation? Make sure that the flex pipe outlets of those spouts terminate at least 6 feet away. Puddles anywhere in your yard-- but particularly close to the house--are an indication that some modification to your drainage plan is in order. Fill those areas in with extra dirt so they drain spontaneously. This is the second most important time of year to clean out the gutters and downspouts with a hose to make sure they're ready to carry summer runoff. Small leaks can be filled with silicone rubber caulking. Decks Around here, decks need cleaning and/or recoating virtually every year. You can clean the layer of pollution off the surface using one of the deck cleaning products you can find at the hardware store or lumber yard. The most common one is made from oxalic acid--a fairly benign chemical, as acids go. You apply it with a roller, let it sit for about 20 minutes, and then scrub it off with a stiff broom and water from the hose. It may take a couple of applications to get the deck boards clean, but, eventually you'll start to see that new-wood patina start to show through. There are at least two formulations and strengths of this stuff, depending on the brand, so read the labels carefully to see which one is best for your circumstances. Once you get the deck clean, let it dry for a couple of days, then apply a good linseed oil based deck stain (the same brand as the cleaner would be a good choice). Check out a semi-transparent version--one with a little pigment in the mix (never the clear versions)--which will buy you an extra year or so of time between episodes of this tedious chore. Keeping up your house doesn t have to cost a lot. A little seasonal maintenance and common sense will save you money down the road on repairs and keep your house looking great for years to come.

24 called a league official and asked that they do a criminal background check on the coach who was making the threats. Here are my tips for finding one of the many super coaches out there, and avoiding the bad ones: DON T LEAVE THE CHOICE OF A COACH TO CHANCE Too often a kid just ends up playing on whatever team his buddies are on. Just because others think the coach is great doesn t necessarily mean he s great for your kid. A little investigation can often reveal a much better option. How To Chose The Right Coach For Your Child By Dan Caplis DO A BACKGROUND CHECK ON POTENTIAL COACHES You can do a quick criminal background check online through the CBI. The information provided by CBI isn t necessarily complete, but it s better than nothing. There are also a number of on-line investigative services that cost more, but are more thorough. Many leagues perform background checks on their coaches, but I suggest that you do it yourself. That way you can be sure its up to date, and that the league hasn t missed anything. I think you should also do a thorough online news search for information about your potential coaches. Google and Google News are good basic sources. There are also a ton of online services which will allow you to perform thorough news database searches for a small fee. I realize that it may feel a little strange to be checking out somebody who is offering to do you and your child a favor. But as a coach myself, I think that just shows that you love your child. Icoach a boys little league team. I certainly don t claim to be the second coming of Clint Hurdle. In fact, I m still not sure that I completely understand the balk rule. But I do know that the purpose of youth sports is to build kids up not tear them down. I think that the vast majority of youth sports coaches are fantastic people with the right attitude. Our kids have been fortunate to have coaches like that, and my wife and I are grateful to those generous volunteers. But there are still a handful of really bad coaches out there. For example, I saw one coach screaming from the dugout at his 9 yr old left fielder. When the petrified kid then dropped a fly ball, the coach ordered him off the field in the middle of the inning. The little boy had to leave the field in disgrace in front of his family, friends, teammates, and opponents. By the time the youngster reached the infield he was sobbing so hard that he just had to stop and cry, which only made the deranged coach scream louder. I ve also watched as a head coach and his assistants laughed while their pitcher threw fastball after fastball into the bodies of opposing 9 yr. old batters. When the other manager tried to step in to protect his players, the offending coach yelled across the field that he was going to jack him up. After that incident I actually TALK WITH SEVERAL FORMER PLAYERS/PARENTS Parents of current players will often give positive feedback because they don t want a negative review to affect their kid. More objective information may come from parents of former players. Be wary, though, of unfairly negative reports from disgruntled parents who left the team because of unrealistic expectations. WATCH THE COACH IN ACTION This isn t always an option, as parents often make these decisions just before the start of a season, but whenever possible I 630 KHOW Denver s Talk Station 24 For Advertising information
