Hold your breath, Denver! Another edition of Happy Friday is on the air, and we’re here to bring you the hotness of the week that was, and the week ahead. Download the audio and help us pay the bills ya’ freeloaders. And then strap in for the goodness within. Here’s what’s cookin’ this week:
*The Eisenhower Tunnel turns 50 years old, and we pay our respects. Full story can be found here.
*A body found near Independence Pass 70 years ago has finally been identified. How?! We discuss it and you can find more detail here.
*In yet more weird history, on this date in 1876 Alexander Graham Bell conducted a successful experiment that led to the invention of the telephone. We commemorate the occasion and also lament the current state of communication.
*Speaking of modes of communication, Colorado investigates the impacts of TikTok on teens. Do the guys use this platform? Take a wild guess. More here.
*In sociopath news, some lunatic tried to stab a United flight attendant and open the emergency door mid-flight on a flight to Boston. What the hell is wrong with people misbehaving during air travel? Full story here.
*Popular NASCAR driver Chase Elliott suffered an injury while snowboarding in Colorado, and he’ll miss some time this season. You can read about it here.
*In a promising sign this godforesaken season is coming to an end, the first grizzly bear emerged from hibernation in Yellowstone. Nice! Check it out here.
*Denver City Council has decided to extend the Safe Outdoor Spaces program with more funding, which seems like a good step in the right direction. More here.
*”The Boss” Bruce Springsteen surprised a Colorado business owner and gave her some primo tickets to his recent show. Nice. Check it out here.

*All three of us will be at Loco+ for the Content Creator Showcase. Kevin and Art will emcee the entire event. Jon is at the top of the show, and there’s an unbelievable amount of talent on this thing. Make sure to get your tickets here.

Our theme song comes from The Frickashinas
