Shows – The Night Beat featuring The Vinyl Vault | Tuesdays 8:00pm , Vinyl Vault 8:30pm

Geoff Anderson has been a KUVO volunteer for more than 25 years. For almost all that time, he has been on the air Tuesday evenings as the host of The Night Beat with Geoff Anderson. Geoff also regularly fills in as the host for All Blues.

Geoff started in public radio in 1976 at KCSU in Fort Collins. After taking a break from radio to attend law school and start a legal career, Geoff dove back into jazz radio by volunteering at KUVO in 1988 as the station was just starting out.

Geoff is a fan of many types of music and attends concerts around town on a regular basis. He show reviews appear on KUVO’s website as well as All About Jazz. Being a music junkie and working in radio during the ’70s resulted in Geoff amassing an extensive record collection that he has kept intact to this day.

During his weekly feature, “The Vinyl Vault,” on-air every Tuesday at 8:30 PM, Geoff shares a record from his collection that isn’t in the KUVO library.
