Radio’s eTown, a Boulder stage for James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Buddy Guy, Neko Case even Al Gore

Boulder's eTown Hall has seen a lot of action lately — especially for a venue that's not even officially finished. The 89-year-old former church, which is undergoing a $5 million renovation, is the new home of eTown, the liberal-minded music-and-conversation radio show that reaches more than 300 stations and an estimated 1 million listeners each week.
