Penny Parker’s On The Town: Eight-year run of Caplis and Silverman ends

June 25, 2012

Caplis and Silverman, KHOW  radio’s legal Bickersons, ended their eight-year-long show after the broadcast Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. on 630-AM.

Craig Silverman and his talk show partner and foil Dan Caplis will concentrate their efforts on their first profession as lawyers after their radio contract was not renewed, according to Silverman.

“It was a great run for eight years, and I had a lot of fun,” Silverman said Friday. “I’m sure I will be involved in the public sphere for decades to come. I’m going back to my first love, which is law.”

Pat Connor, president and market manager of KHOW owner Clear Channel said, “We sincerely thank Dan and Craig for their eight years here at KHOW and wish them the very best….as for programming it will be a live and local show beginning in the very near future.”

“The future” begins on July 16 — according to the KHOW website.

I was a Friday afternoon contributor for several years where I discussed my week’s worth of columns at The Rocky Mountain News and subsequently at The Denver Post.

While at The Rocky, air jordan 9 I broke the story about my fairly famous fight with then-Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer who lambasted me over the phone after I wrote about his Broncos cheerleader girlfriend (who he later married), even though he had introduced her to media during a public event.

I will miss their banter on the radio, and wish both of them the best.

Fabulous Fourth

Like most Fourth of July celebrating folks, you probably have your favorite spot to take in the light show, but if you’re looking to venture outside of your norm, here are three alternative venues to celebrate the good ol’ US of A.

The really big “shoe” is Independence Eve presented by Anadarko, a free concert by The Colorado Symphony and fireworks display beginning at 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 3 (not the Fourth) at Civic Center Park.

Lawn seating is on a first come basis, so early arrival is highly encouraged. Blankets or low-rise beach chairs are allowed.

At the eastern Denver city limits, there will be a free July 4th community concert by the band The Julius Show and fireworks presented by Oakwood Homes at Green Valley Ranch Amphitheater.

The concert takes place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. followed by a fireworks show choreographed to music.

The summer concert series continues on Wednesdays July 11 through Aug. 1. For a schedule and directions to the Amphitheater, visit

Aurora’s fireworks show is spectacular especially when you’re watching from a seat on the grounds of Aurora Hills Golf Course.

Tin Cup owner Cindy Jones puts on a heck of a party air jordan 10 where you bring your own meat to grill, pay a small fee for Jones’ homemade sides, and enjoy the free light show that starts at dark.

Eavesdropping on former Gov. Bill Owens talking about a bit in Denver Stories where he and Gov. John Hickenlooper are playing catch: “He may be a better governor, but I’m a better pitcher.”
