Who We Are
Since 1985, jazz89 KUVO has provided our community with a rare blend of music and news. We broadcast the very best in jazz, Latin jazz and blues - in addition to seventeen locally-produced, host-inspired, culturally diverse programs. Music shows are integrated with NPR news, our LOCAL morning program First Take with Lando and Chavis, and special features. During the week-night evenings, we air nationally-syndicated programs from NPR and PRI.
KUVO features live broadcasts of local high school and collegiate musicians, as well as national touring artists, from its Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio. Throughout the years, we have broadcast remotely from concerts, festivals and community functions. Live remotes have included "Live from Boettcher Concert Hall with Dianne Reeves", Cinco de Mayo, Denver Black Arts Festival, the 25th Anniversary of National Public Radio's Toast of the Nation, A Taste of Greenwood Village, and the 9News Stuff For Students Drive.
Jazz89 KUVO has won several national and local awards, including Major Market Jazz Station of the Year (2005, 2006) from JazzWeek Magazine. Jazz89 KUVO also has the distinction of being the first Colorado FM radio station to begin broadcasting in High Definition.
