Anna Boiko-Weyrauch, Rocky Mountain PBS News

Changes to the GED exam in 2014 made the test more rigorous, resulting in plummeting pass rates. This has caused some to seek out GED alternatives, like the HiSET offered in Wyoming.

Rocky Mountain PBS News reporter Anna Boiko-Weyrach followed teen moms along their journey to gain high school accreditation and dove into how others across the state, like these women, have been impacted by the GED's revamp.


“Out of Nowhere” - composed by Johnny Green with lyrics by Edward Heyman - was released in 1931, as people were beginning to realize that the depression would not be lifting anytime soon.

The song holds on to the possibility of a bright future, with love coming “out of nowhere” but potential for an equally mysterious vanishing back into nowhere.

Written in G major with an A – B1 – A – B2 progression, “Out of Nowhere” easily engages listeners.


The Allan Harris Band will perform live in KUVO's Phyllis A Greer Performance Studio on November 28 from 3 to 4 PM.

Vocalist and guitarist Allan Harris will share tunes from his latest release, The Black Bar JukeBox, as well as a few selections from his Nat King Cole Christmas album.

As we begin the last month of the Fall, it pleases me to have selected a swingin’ jazz orchestra whose players are amongst the best musicians, and in some cases, educators the Front Range has to offer. The composer, arranger and conductor of this aggregation is the award winning, educator. David Caffey who is now a resident of Greely.

There are so many components to the Thanksgiving meal that the best strategy is to choose wines that are versatile enough to go with a myriad of dishes. 

The Mas de Daumas Gassac Frizante is a perfect example - it paired amazingly well with all the different Haystack Mountain Cheese featured on our food and wine pairing segment.  Some of the cheese was aged, some fresh and young and another, very smokey and bacon like.  The wine was a delight with them all.  

The Queen Of Swing Takes Old Age In Stride

Nov 20, 2015

The 1920s gave life to jazz, jukeboxes and the career of Norma Miller — the Queen of Swing. Now, at 95 years old, Miller is the last living member of Whitey's Lindy Hoppers, the group that took Lindy Hop — the original swing dance — out of Harlem's ballrooms and across the world.

“Struttin’ with Some Barbecue” was originally composed  in 1927 by Lil Hardin Armstrong as an instrumental piece, with lyrics added by Don Raye in 1941.

Tune in to First Take with Lando and Chavis - weekdays from 6-9 am MT - for Stories of Standards to hear our favorite versions of this song all week long!

This popular song has been recorded more than 600 times.

This week, the 77-year-old New Orleans songwriter, producer and arranger Allen Toussaint died after a concert in Madrid. For most of his career, Toussaint preferred working behind the scenes, but our friend Gwen Thompkins met him at a time when he'd thrown himself into performing extensively around the world. Before they parted ways for what would be the last time, Toussaint gave Thompkins a gift: a demo recording of a song he never got to release, but said he wanted the world to hear.

Blue Note Records

Few cities have produced as many jazz greats as Detroit and its surrounding suburbs, in fact beyond jazz,  the Motor City  has always been fertile ground for producing numerous gifted and influential musicians in a wide array of music categories. Blue Note Records releases a new compilation CD in tribute to Motown; Detroit Jazz City. The recording features 9 selections from different artists that hail from Detroit.

Growing up in Miami as the child of a Haitian father and a French mother, singer Cécile McLorin Salvant heard a wide range of music, including that of jazz singer Sarah Vaughan.
