THE DROP 104.7 Turns 3 Years Old!

Written by on June 29, 2022

Three years of so many memories, moments and of course music! Here’s to a many more years to come. Thank you so much for your support YOU help keep us going every day. We are The People’s Station! When THE DROP 104.7 started, we were just THE DROP! We later got on the 104.7 dial which was HUGE for us! We’ve done a lot through these past three years, and we have YOU to thank, Colorado!

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of the past three years (there are so many, not all of them are here):
