Mile High Noon: On the Road with Moss Pink

May 9, 2014

This spring Alisha's taking Mile High Noon on the road to travel around our community and get to know what Colorado music you're listening to. It's a weekly Guest DJ series where listeners get to choose the music, with one condition: you have to teach her something in return!

Moss Pink's Jil Schlisner with Alisha Sweeney

I first met Jil at a wedding for Warlock Pinchers' Andrew Novick and I instantly loved her style: particularly her hair, clothes, and the beautiful floral arrangements she helped create. She's a huge supporter of all things local and I've seen her at concerts, art openings and comedy shows over the years.

  • John Grant- "Sensitive New Age Guy"
  • 16 Horsepower- "For Heaven's Sake"
  • Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats- "Trying So Hard Not To Know"
  • Magic Cyclops- "Teen Pregnancy Don't Do It (Denver Version)"
  • Ending People- "Mouthful"

I discovered that my mother's flower personality is classic, and that flowers found in a "grandmother's backyard" best suit her. Make sure to listen to this feature to find out which flower Jil says matches my personality! Thanks Moss Pink for the education and great time!
