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.

In what is historically regarded as one of the most significant Colorado landmarks, Denver City Park is  known for its vibrant and popular summer Jazz concert season. This year, the park celebrates its 30th anniversary of the Jazz Summer Concert series that derived from a tradition that is more than a century old for Denver City Park. The second concert in this summer’s series featured one of Denver’s most widely regarded female Jazz singers, Lannie Garrett.

On June 22nd we combined National Bike to Work Day with the "Eats & Beats" segment by having cycling nutritionist Dr. Allen Lim from Skratch Labs on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

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."
