MAX Live in the HITS Hangout! (Anti-Bullying Performance)
In honor of this past October being Anti-Bullying Month, my guy MAX popped by the HITS Hangout for an exclusive live acoustic performance. You may know MAX from his hit song "Lights Down Low" or his collaboration with Suga of BTS. We talk about personal experiences with bullies, what to do if you're dealing with a bully, MAX's music, and so much more. This was really cool to me because when I first began my radio career I interviewed MAX, then again during my time in Nashville, & now here in Denver nearly 10 years later! Talk about full circle. Thank you for taking the anti-bullying pledge. I really hope you enjoy this podcast/performance. My name is JR & remember it's cool to be you.

From Volunteer to Business Owner. My Conversation with Anthony at Out The Box!
It's not every day you get invited to a collectibles shop after hours to record a conversation with the shop owner. Over the last few months, I've really started to find my footing here in Denver. I'm starting to make friends, create connections, and collaborate with the collector's community here in the Mile High. I'm genuinely starting to feel more and more like myself and less like I'm here because this is where my job is. Anthony (A-Tiz) is an owner and operator of the ( Out The Box ) collectibles & consignment shop in Thornton, CO. I've visited this spot a handful of times, and over these visits, he's become one of my collector community buddies quickly. I'm excited for you to hear this podcast. Anthony has a very interesting story that we've only scratched the surface on.
My audio quality will get better and better as I gain more experience in mobile recording. What I mean by that is recording podcasts outside of the radio station. With that said this is very very listenable. I'm just my own worst critic lol.
