Nederland Colorado's 'Michigan Mike' Torpie

Saturday, November 26 2011 @ 02:37 AM MST

Michigan Mike on KGNU radio:

I always thought Mike would be such a fun guest on KGNU as he has such a love of music and finally after years of invites he did join me on the Afternoon Sound Alternative show on KGNU and he was excited, nervous and did a great job!

He presented exclusive recordings from his NEDFEST.

I have many memories of Mike but one I enjoy was his mastery of scrabble! I don't think anyone could best him in Nederland.  

A few weeks ago Mike was driving about in his new NEDFEST RV and kidnapped me for some fun adventures. He was so alive and vibrant. I am angry and upset with this news of his passing... but anyone that was hanging with Mike knew of his struggles and this was a possible destiny.

I owe you a pint Mike cuz you treated me just over the street recently.  Miss you already you bastard!!!  arg!!!

PS:  oh Mike! MOFO!!!

can you make an audio blurb for my radio show?

Saturday, July 31 2010 @ 04:36 PM MDT

I have been hosting radio shows on KGNU (independent, volunteer, community run, non-commercial) radio station for 14 years now and really enjoy myself as I love collecting various musics and such a blast to share them. I spend tons of tyme listening and researching music from around the world to share. I never have a playlist in advance, I just bring in a collection of phresh tunes and play them as the vibe seems right. The challenge is always almost overwhelming to me but I always do just fine and the experience is the best natural high I know of.

I always try to have live phone interviews of interesting folks, in studio guests, co-hosts, guest DJs, live bands, Dr. Meg with free faux life coaching, old radio bits from Wolfman Jack, spoken word, fake commercials, sound effects, etc

It is so much phun!!

I love the music but what i also love so much is when my friends from around the world get involved by sharing interesting music, interviews, sound files, etc

I want you! Could you make an audio file for me to play on future radio shows?

perhaps you start by saying hellos, introduce yourself, mention any interesting things in your life, mention your projects, and if you would like, mention the radio station information:

"KGNU, Boulder, Denve,r 88.5FM, 1390 AM"

ok sweet, save your audio file as MP3 or whatever you wish and email it now to me : ironfeatherbooks (at)

I will play it on my next radio show and future shows also.

Thank you!!!

Stevyn IronFeather

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!
