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.
