What is etown?
etown's mission is to educate, entertain and inspire a diverse audience, through music and conversation, to create a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable world. 

etown is an exciting weekly radio broadcast
We're heard from coast to coast on NPR®/public, commercial, and community stations. It can be heard on WMMO Sundays at 7AM. Like old-time radio variety shows, every etown show is taped in front of a live audience and features performances from many of today's top musical artists as well as conversation and information about our communities and our environment. 

etown is a community builder
By featuring diverse music and interviews with a wide variety of authors, poets and policy-makers, etown creates a constantly expanding "community on the air." With the addition of inspiring e-chievement awards, listeners all over the country are reminded that individual efforts really do make a difference. etown is a place where respect for each other and our natural environment go hand in hand. 

etown is a great live event
Whether at the Boulder Theater or one of the many other venues around the country where the show is recorded, etown is an entertaining, informative and downright inspiring live show. Hosts Nick and Helen Forster lead the show seamlessly, mixing music and message with humor and energy to create a one-of-a-kind live show. The show includes two musical guests, an interview guest and the presentation of the e-chievement winner. At the end of every show all musical guests collaborate on a one-of-a-kind exciting finale.
