Solar Home Innovations; Ski Season Forecast; Coors Heir’s Death; Remembering Tom Petty

Listen Now

A temporary village has popped up near Denver International Airport, with completely solar homes built by college students and sponsored by the federal government. A team from the University of Denver built a home with a wall covered in moss. Then, with the possibility of snow hitting the Front Range by Monday, a meteorologist offers a ski season forecast. And, a Coors heir was killed in a botched kidnapping in 1960. A new book tells the tale of the manhunt for his brilliant but bumbling murderer. Plus, CPR's OpenAir remembers rock legend Tom Petty, who passed away this week at the age of 66.
