And there’s a bonus: all moviegoers get a free lift ticket for Eldora, Powderhorn, and Steamboat Springs, and deals on tickets at Monarch, Loveland, Winter Park, and Squaw Valley. Thu 8 p.m. Paramount Theatre 1621 Glenarm Pl. 303-623-0106, $25

Now, the Radio Hall of Fame inductee tells his own tales, including stories of growing up in the Midwest and becoming a father late in life. Fri 7:30-10 p.m. Riverwalk Center 150 W. Adams Ave., Breckenridge. 970-547-3100, $55-$95
