We endeavor to inform, enlighten and entertain our listeners in two primary ways: by fostering a better understanding of our community, and by promoting music enjoyment and education throughout the region.
Our goal is to be Colorado’s definitive destination for learning and engaging in topics that matter most to those connected to Colorado.
