Bay-area political activist Steve Phillips poured his personal experience winning a school board seat in San Francisco, plus his political action committee work for the Obama campaigns into a demographic treatise that offers some interesting lessons for any 21st century politico.  He previewed his visit to Denver this week with a short chat on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

World Mourns Passing of Prince

Apr 21, 2016

KUVO joins the world in mourning the passing of singer/songwriter, Prince. The music icon died Thursday at his Paisley Park estate in suburban  Minneapolis. He was 57.

Born Prince Rogers Nelson, Prince was a multi-instrumental virtuoso who sold more than 100 million records during his celebrated career. He reportedly played 27 instruments on one of his recordings. He is remembered for such iconic songs as "Purple Rain,"  "Little Red Corvette" and "1999."

A memorial is rapidly growing at Paisley Park in celebration of the life of this citizen of the world.

Jazz on Film: Don Cheadle’s story w/ attitude 'Miles Ahead'

Apr 21, 2016

“If you’re going to tell a story, come with some attitude.”

Given the Passover Seder plate staples of brisket and matzoh, a fuller bodied red wine would be good, although we've always tried to let our customers choose whatever they want.  We do have red and white kosher wines.

Kosher wine has come a long way in the last five years with more modern wine making techniques, more care in the vineyard and more care in the cellar.  There is much more variety as well: pinot noir, sparkling, cabernet, chardonnay, white blends.


What has our food come to, when the simplest, most natural process for raising food seems special, unique, or groundbreaking? So it seems with the return to grass-fed dairy cows.  Nutrition educator Jonathan Clinthorne, who works with Natural Grocers, visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis" to share the latest on "pasture-raised dairy."

"Fifty to 100 years ago, all cows were out on pasture their entire lives," said Clinthorne.  "Our entire agricultural system has changed so much in the last decade.  Confinement dairies feed cows corn and soy, grains."  


April is Financial Literacy for Youth Month (so proclaimed by the U.S. Congress in 2003. One wonders if Tax Day is intentionally related...).  Certainly Americans' dismal savings rate (2.6 percent of gross national income, according to the Federal Reserve) and lagging retirement planning suggests we need to begin financial planning when people are young!

Dr. Anthony Grant started as MSU Denver's new director of athletics the same day the Regency Athletic Complex at Auraria Campus opened across vacant industrial space at Mariposa and Colfax. And things have just kept getting more exciting for both Grant and the urban community ever since.
