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."

In a bag or in a box, summertime wine in Colorado's parks and outdoor concert venues do not involve glass bottles.  Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine & Spirits comes to the rescue with an array of varietals, vintages and accessories for the June edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing on the morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

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.
