KUVO celebrates volunteer host Gabriel!
Gabriel was born into a family of musicians with roots in Detroit and New Orleans. She came to Denver several years after college. Like many others, Denver was a stop on the way to somewhere else for Gabriel, but she’s been here for over 30 years!
Gabriel has been a volunteer at KUVO since 1990. She spent several years working in the membership department.
She was convinced by other on-air hosts to try being an on-air host. Her first shift was Saturday morning, 2 to 5 am. Her listeners were bakers and cab drivers. She is now on Saturday afternoons. Gabriel is partial to jazz standards, swing, bebop, and straight-ahead jazz tunes.
“Sarah Vaughan Time” is featured every week, a feature that came about as a result of a listener who called weekly to ask, “Is it Sarah Vaughan time yet?” It is and will be, as long as Gabriel is on the air at KUVO!
Tune in to Jazz with Gabriel on Saturday afternoons, noon to 2 pm.
About Women’s History Month — Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982, as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.
