First Take with Lando and Chavis

Weekdays, 6 to 9 AM

Start your day off right with Carlos Lando and Steve Chavis, bringing you a blend of music, news and community programming every weekday morning from 6 to 9 AM. 

Each week, Lando's Stories of Standards feature examines a different jazz standard or tune from the Great American Songbook to educate listeners on the song's history, composers and covers.

On Wednesdays, Chavis hosts Eats & Beats, a segment related to food, restaurants, chefs and all things gastronomic. 

Tune in Thursdays for Arts & Culture features. Every month on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, we explore the world of Jazz on Film with special guest Matthew Goldwasser. On the 2nd and 4th Thursdays, KUVO arts maven and Rocky Mountain PBS Arts District host Carrie Saldo presents the latest in Colorado's visual and performing arts.

Colorado is one of the most accessible states in the union, says Rachel Stafford, with the Rocky Mountain ADA Center.  She joined the KUVO morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis" from the National ADA Symposium in downtown Denver.

"We're (also) happy to report the City and County of Denver is top notch in terms of accessibility."

Comic Books grew up on the rough side of town.  The children of immigrants, Comic Books tried to lash on to the fables of yesteryear and the myths of the ages to get some credibility.  But nobody gave them that kind of respect.  They were considered eye-candy, the equivalent of the boob tube - mindless entertainment and gratuitous violence.  Then Comic Books met Hollywood, and sparks flew.  The romance was fast and furious.  The baby: pop culture.

 As garden parties go, this Saturday's "Summer Soiree" on the lawn at the Auraria Campus Student Success Building might have a little more to show off.  Jimi Webb from the MSU-Denver Hotel and Hospitality Learning Center visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis" with a preview of the event and some tasty truffles (literally).  Audio posted below.
