First Take

For many of us, thoughts of traveling to tropical villas to sip frozen beverages while yachting prompt reveries of relaxation. Some people imagine reclining on floating loungers amid crystal waters, while the more audacious think about splashing in the waves. When KUVO’s "First Take with Lando and Chavis" asked Matthew Moseley about his paradisiacal fantasies, he simply shared one of his past experiences: having paddled 24.5 miles through the Atlantic Ocean from Culebra Island to Puerto Rico without assistance, Moseley spoke to the pleasure of (you guessed it…) swimming.

Tonight (Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015), the McNichols Building at Denver Civic Center Park ties together painter Trine Bumiller's exhibition of oil paintings inspired by 100 years of Rocky Mountain National Park, the second floor exhibition celebrating rock-n-roll and metal sculpture by Kevin Robb in an event called "Night of Rock."

"Good Morning Heartache" | Stories of Standards

Sep 8, 2015; info from The Jazz Standards: A Guide to the Repertoire by Ted Gioia

“Good Morning Heartache,” first recorded in 1946 by Billie Holiday, is the result of a collaboration between Irene Higginbotham, Dan Fisher, and lyricist Ervin Drake. Higginbotham numbered among the few successful women in the songwriting industry during the first half of the 20th century.

Due to the male-dominated nature of the industry at the time, scant interest was expressed in her life until recently. In fact, information regarding Higginbotham’s career is so sparse that for years, she was confused with Irene Kitchings, the wife of pianist Teddy Wilson.

Metropolitan State University of Denver launches the Denver Project for Humanistic Inquiry (“D-phi”) in September with a citywide series of events including art exhibits, film screenings, theatrical performances and lectures.  

D-phi Director and MSU—Denver Associate Professor of Philosophy Adam Graves shared the big, esoteric picture on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."
