It’s hard to believe it’s been almost two years since the Barack Obama administration came to an end. We’re not here to play politics, but we do think government is super fascinating. That’s what we’re excited to hear from Barack’s right-hand man, Joe Biden, when he visits Missoula in December! Yep, ol’ Joe will bring […]
Chill your wine and drink it too!
There’s quite a bit of wine enthusiasts on the staff at 104.5 the U. It’s true – the more wine we drink, the more enthusiastic we get. But this November we’re getting enthusiastic not about OUR wine consumption but about YOUR chance to enjoy some of the finest wines in Missoula. Check it out: Starting […]
Cider, cider everywhere!

It’s time for KidsFest 2018!
Yes, it’s insanity; but it’s the fun kind of insanity, right? We’re talking about KidsFest, that one day a year in which we turn Caras Park over to its rightful owners: The young and the young at heart.

Many ways to celebrate the 4th
Just because it falls in the middle of the week doesn’t mean you can’t make some great Fourth of July memories this year. Yes, we know – Wednesdays are not prime for road trips, picnics and late night celebrations. But if you DO have the day off there’s still plenty of options to jam your […]

Should I prep for a short day hike, or […]
