It’s Denver’s favorite morning radio show! And that’s not just US saying it – the Colorado Broadcasters Association has etched our names on a bunch of plaques.
Dom has hosted the morning show for a LONG time. (Let’s put it this way: there are college seniors who weren’t born yet when Dom started at Mix 100.) Jeremy has also been making you laugh with his quirky stories and wacky sense of humor since 2004!
Join us weekday mornings for a ton of laughs, the Trending Report, Rattle Off, and the most popular radio contest in the world, The Mindbender presented by Safeway!

The Infiniti line of cars was created to be the posh side of Nissan, just as Lexus is the fancy division of Toyota. So what happens when you take some of the components of the Nissan Pathfinder and spruce it up a bit, slap some makeup on it, and send it out in a nice pair of designer jeans?
Well, you get to brand it an Infiniti SUV, that’s what.
The QX line of luxury SUVs has that responsibility, and for the most part they do it well.
There are some, however, who feel like they’ve made it nice . . . but not exactly nice enough to go bumper-to-bumper with the likes of BMW, Audi, and Mercedes. Car and Driver, for instance, said it comes across as “a really nice Nissan.”
Okay, so that’s funny, and perhaps even true in some circumstances. But I’ve driven a few Pathfinders, and the QX60 is certainly a significant upgrade.
Not a lot has changed since the ’22 version, with the exception of a few exterior touches, three years of maintenance (oil changes, inspections, and tire rotation), and a wireless charging pad. But it was already a pleasure to drive, and that hasn’t changed.Continue Reading
When you’re introducing a new car model to your lineup, one of the best things you can do is make it a head-turner. Get everyone’s attention first before the excitement wears off and it blends into the background with all its competitors.
Infiniti did just that when they introduced the QX55 for the 2022 model year.
Some call this crossover SUV “striking,” others have used the term “great curb appeal.” No matter what adjective you apply, there’s no denying the QX55 looks terrific.
The question is: Will it stand up to closer scrutiny?Continue Reading
Technically, the X3 falls into the category of small SUV. And yet, nothing about it seems small. It delivers big performance with some big-time fun.
It’s been nearly twenty years since BMW unveiled the X3, and it’s been a fan favorite since that very first day. And really, what’s not to like? It delivers good fuel efficiency for its class without sacrificing the get-up-and-go we all enjoy from the German car maker.
Without a major overhaul for ’22, BMW instead did some touch-up work, mostly on the exterior appearance. The grille got a little bigger while the headlights got a bit slimmer. There are some slight modifications to the rear lights, the bumpers, and the wheels, as well.Continue Reading
For thirty years, Ford produced a sport utility vehicle called the Bronco, built to compete with Jeep. The two companies maintained a spirited rivalry until 1996, when Ford pulled the plug.
And, for the next 25 years, the Bronco simply lived on as a legend as the F-150 took over the crown.
Ah, but now the Bronco has come roaring back with the new, sixth-generation version popping up in 2021. Older fans, perhaps somewhat motivated by nostalgia, clamored to see one up close, while younger people—who’d never experienced the brand—were curious what the fuss was all about.
Make no mistake, this is not the same vehicle that had become way too associated with O.J. Simpson. (Sorry, Ford.) A quarter of a century seems to be enough time to get that sour taste out of the public’s mouth, replaced with a dashing new off-road machine that’s ready to fight to regain its championship belt.
As we like to say on the radio show, People are different. That’s never more true than when we choose the cars that catch our eye. Some opt for bigger and boxier, while others prefer smaller and sleeker.
Then some people, I guess, like front grills that look like a beaver.
Okay, so I’m kidding, and it’s not that bad. But there’s something about the face of the newly re-designed BMW 4-Series convertible that’s . . . well, different. For most people, that won’t matter a bit.
It could also be the placement of the license plate. It has nowhere to go in front but to squat in the midst of those two front teeth. Maybe this car is a better option for people who live in states that don’t require a front plate?
Anyway, moving on. The 4-series is mostly built on the design of the venerable (and damned near perfect) 3-Series. Same powertrain, for example, and much of the interior design. But there are enough tweaks and additions to give the 4 its own personality and flair. And lord knows you’ll get where you’re going quickly, if that’s what you desire.Continue Reading
But that was a problem, because when it finally did make it across the pond, its unveiling in the U.S. left many unimpressed. The problem was that it hadn’t really been updated much at all. It was odd that a “new” car looked, well, old.
Never fear. Audi isn’t the kind of company to let things fester. For the 2019 model year they pulled back the curtain on a fresh new Q3, one that’s not only slightly larger, but remarkably updated.
From its stunning grill and cool running lights, to the distinguished but sexy, well-defined side lines, the Q3 has finally (truly) arrived.
Here’s the story of an SUV that went on a diet, and things turned out well. The original GMC Acadia was a full-sized SUV when it debuted for 2007, but ten years later the automaker lopped off a few inches, both length and width, along with about 700 pounds.
Today, with some minor additions for the 2020 model year, the result is a mid-sized SUV that can look — and sometimes act — rugged, while maintaining some city integrity, too.
If you’re looking for third-row availability to manage your busy family lifestyle, take a peek at the Acadia. Last year it came up just a tad short of selling 100,000 units.
There are multiple trim levels to choose from, and the MSRPs reflect those many options.Continue Reading
Volkswagen has dabbled in the luxury sandbox in the past, with only a smattering of success. Now they’re back with a vengeance, proudly showing off a car that’s a little bit sedan, a little bit hatchback, and a good dose of fun.
When they first began to arrive at American dealerships this past April, most people were probably hesitant. “What’s an Arteon?” was likely uttered to salespeople for months. In fact, it probably still is.
But that’s cool. After spending a week behind the wheel, I hope VW is prepared for a long game, because they’re off to a good start. Perfect? Nope. But I was pleasantly surprised, and look forward to watching things progress with subtle alterations.Continue Reading
I’d say you have choices.
And here’s the cool thing: All of those choices will be good, regardless of the route you take. Base model with smaller engine and fewer toys? It’s a great small crossover. Go with the option-heavy M model with a stouter engine? It’s a winner, too.
So how much do you want to spend?Continue Reading
Well, my friend, welcome to the marriage of utility and fun. It’s called the Stelvio.
Or, using the name on its birth certificate, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. Whew, if a car ever needed a nickname . . .
Thus, we just say Stelvio, the name of an Italian mountain pass famous for its dozens of winding switchbacks. Those hairpin turns don’t usually scream “SUV,” but in this case it certainly works.
Alfa Romeos aren’t overly familiar in the U.S., but the car maker has been putting out sporty – and racing – vehicles since 1910. They know their way around horsepower. But even traditional automobile powers are caving to the demand for sport utility vehicles, and the Stelvio represents Alfa Romeo’s first SUV.
Nothing like hitting it out of the park in your first at-bat.Continue Reading

Avs and Nuggets players, coaches and staff run through fundamentals and drills as athletes of all ages get the opportunity to hone their skills at Pepsi Center; Young Athletes are invited to a sports field day each summer; and the Rapids host a Unified team made up of athletes of all levels of intellectual ability.
This year’s Harvest Festival Trunk-or-Treat event will be a fun, inclusive and safe way for kids to participate in Halloween while raising awareness and funds for Special Olympics.
