80 years of "The Pec" with Anna Krantz and Carlos Lando

Carlos Lando interviews Anna Krantz

Anna Krantz virtually grew up at her father Jerry Krantz's lower downtown cantina and jazz establishment, El Chapultepec, which marks its 80th anniversary with events Sunday Aug. 4 through Saturday Aug. 10.

Here is the long-form interview between KUVO program director Carlos Lando and Anna Krantz, which includes recollections of old Denver, BB King, the Marsalis Family, the night U2 was turned away, and the future of "The Pec."

 Music in this feature comes from Billy Tolles, "Blue Capers," (CD - Chapulteset) and James Van Buren, "El Chapultepec Shuffle" (CD - The Very Best of James Van Buren). Details on the events are at El Chapultepec's website: http://thepeclodo.com/
