Rocky Mountain Revival

Rocky Mountain Revival is an Audio Art Journal. What does that mean? We are a haven for readers, writers, singers, storytellers, audio artists, listeners and dreamers; an oasis for story-thirsty wanderers; an island of freedom in an ocean of thought tyranny surrounded by sharks that feed on the imagination. And no, we are not exaggerating. We support all arts, though we have a focus on literature and music. Generally speaking, each episode features a special musical guest and short story, though we reserve all rights to deviate from that formula whenever we deem necessary.
