Geoff Anderson

Host, Tuesday's Night Beat and Substitute Host, All Blues

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.

In his spare time, Geoff is a real estate attorney at Sweetbaum, Levin & Sands, PC .

Jazz and rock began their courtship in the late 1960s. For a while, it seemed like they would never get together. From the beginning of rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘50s, the two genres had kept their distance from one another, each professing its distaste for the other. Yet despite their initial antipathy, despite their feelings that they had nothing in common, that they would never even be seen together, much less engage in any sort of “hook up” behavior, they eventually fell for each other, formed a union and produced a new breed of musical progeny.

Remembering the King

May 19, 2015

In light of B.B. King's passing this past Friday, Night Beat host Geoff Anderson shares the King's rise to legend and his review of a 2010 performance at Denver's Buell Theater.

B.B. King's Rise to Legend

B. B. King is the last of the authentic Delta bluesmen, a group including legends like Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf.

Stevie Wonder at the Pepsi Center - March 17, 20215

Is there anyone who doesn’t like Stevie Wonder? On his current tour, Wonder is performing his 1976 album Songs in the Key of Life - one of Wonder's most critically acclaimed albums - from start to finish.

Paquito D’Rivera and the Walter Gorra Septet - February 27,2015

Jazz, pass it on.That was a big part of what happened last Friday night at the Mount Vernon Country Club.

A jazz guy plays with a heavy rock band? That would be the superficial description of Sco-Mule. A deeper examination shows that John Scofield and Gov’t Mule’s Warren Haynes are twin brothers of different mothers. Each possesses a yearning, restless soul, constantly seeking new musical forms and combinations. Each is fearless behind his guitar. And each is possessed of a virtuoso talent and, seemingly, can do whatever he wants.
