“Peak Radar Live” features interviews, performances, behind-the-scenes access, sneak previews and personal tours highlighting the rich cultural life of the Pikes Peak region of Colorado. Produced and hosted by Angela Seals, “Peak Radar Live” launched in summer 2020 to tell the stories of local arts and culture in an interactive, entertaining format. The show is based on a series of over 70 live videos about the arts community on Facebook that Angela created from 2016-2019. Each episode broadcasts on YouTube and Facebook several times a month, covering local events, new stories in the arts, and First Friday art walks. Viewers can interact live during the show to ask questions or share comments! Follow @PeakRadar on YouTube and Facebook to find out about upcoming broadcasts.
