Funky Features on The Morning Set is a feature for arts and culture lovers! Premiering Fridays on The Morning Set, we’ll focus on a film, concert, art show, live theater performance, festival, and events, all happening right here in the Mile High City and across Colorado.

On Friday, April 8, host Carlos Lando spoke with filmmaker Ben Makinen, director of the award-winning film “JazzTown.” Ben Makinen is an independent award-winning filmmaker, producer, composer, and recording artist. He is the founder and president of the record label Bmakin Music and of the film production company Bmakin Film. In 2020 he founded the International Modern Film Alliance, offering workshops around the world to “teach and promote the art of storytelling through the marriage of music and film.”

If you missed it on The Morning Set, here is Ben Makinen’s two-part interview with Carlos Lando!


The Morning Set is on weekdays from 7 to 10 AM on KUVO JAZZ – Your Oasis in the City!
