On Thursday nights, 8:30-10:30p.m., oldsters will take over the facility for lessons in guitar, drums and any other rock-related instrument. The school’s faculty is comprised of working musicians who have prepared students to work alongside a veritable Who’s Who of major rock stars, ranging from Peter Frampton to Alice Cooper.
Each Grad student will have a 30 minute individual lesson at some point in the evening, with the remaining 90 minutes devoted to group rehearsals and jams. Teachers who are not in lessons will augment the jam bands. The Grad School program is priced at $250 per month. For more information, call 720-221-6991.
Listen up, folks. If you’re among the legions replacing your old cathode-ray tube TV with a fine new flat screen, you may be wondering just what to do with your old unit once its screen has gone dark. The folks at ListenUp, 685 S. Pearl St., the area’s premier dealer of audio/video electronics, has a solution for you.
Owner Walt Stinson has contracted with Luminous Recycling of Denver to “responsibly recycle” your old TV when you purchase a new one from ListenUp. Previously done for a $100 disposal charge, Stinson assures us that the old sets “will be processed in a licensed, state-of-the-art plant that separates out all the toxic elements and creates tons of materials that are then shipped back to manufacturers to be re-used in new products.” At the end of the process, “less than one percent of the original TV ends up as landfill.”
Luminous is one of only two U.S. companies that own a CRT Angel, a high-tech unit that safely separates leaded glass from unleaded glass, preventing toxic waste from ending up in landfills. The Angel can disassemble 120 CRTs in one hour, or 60,000 per month, so it ought to take care of your 27-inch Sony in short order.
