Little Feat, Muddy Waters and John Prine were just a few of the legendary artists ListenUp provided sound for during live KFML-FM radio broadcasts from famed Denver nightclub, Ebbets Field. These popular broadcasts, as well as promotional spots, were tagged with the phrase “Sound By ListenUp,” which put the Pearl Street shop on the map amongst both music lovers and artists.
The shows, more than 300 in total, were also recorded by ListenUp as a self funded project of historical preservation, capturing the live performances on 1000s of hours of tape. Many years later, as the historical significance of the tapes became apparent, ListenUp’s Phil Murray worked with G Brown from radio station KCUV to release some of the best tracks to the public as a fundraiser for the The Morgan Adams Foundation, which works to raise awareness on behalf of children afflicted with cancer. The four-volume CD collection, titled “Live From Ebbets Field,” is now a collectors item, bringing big bids on Ebay.
