Happy Birthday KUVO! Thirty-five years ago, this weekend, August 29, KUVO went on the air for the very first time. Since then, it’s been an amazing ride.

“On the Street Where You Live”

Wazee Street. Morrison Road. Federal Street. Five Points Media Center. Buell Media Center. Every studio was a new beginning, a step forward in technology, with new tools and new methods for connecting audiences with the community, a diversity of cultures, and an amazing depth and breadth of music. And now, at the brand-new Koelbel KUVO Studios in the Buell Media Center, we’re poised to deliver more music, better-sounding and more reliably than ever before.


Sign on. Canción Mexicana. La Nueva Voz. Benefit concerts at Loretto Heights and the Paramount Theater. Live broadcasts from El Chapultepec and the Vail Jazz Festival. “Caliente – Latin Jazz with Eddie Palmieri.”  The Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio. The High School / Collegiate Series. Live at the Vineyards. NPR’s “Toast of the Nation” from Denver.  Jazz Odyssey. Live from Dazzle. Salsa Con Jazz. Jazz Messenger Party. Colorado Gives Day. The Five Points Jazz Festival.  The Drop. And what’s your favorite show?

WE did it!!

Thanks to an active, involved audience (yes, our LISTENER-MEMBERS), KUVO has defied the odds and found a way not just to survive, but to THRIVE! This is a testament to the power of community, the power of pulling together, the power of music.  Our 35th anniversary is an opportunity for all of us in the KUVO community to give each other a socially distant high five! Happy Birthday!!
