The mile high airwaves of Colorado were rocked with a new sound, as the first bilingual radio station in Denver made its debut on August 29, 1985. The station was the fulfilled dream of Florence Hernández-Ramos, the first Latinx female president and general manager of a public radio station. The station has a jazz format; as Hernández-Ramos noted in an interview, “People have a stereotype about Hispanic controlled station. They are shocked to discover we have a jazz format.” The station now broadcasts the very best in jazz, Latin jazz and blues – in addition to fifteen locally-produced, host-inspired, culturally diverse programs. Music shows are integrated with NPR news, our LOCAL morning program First Take with Lando and Chavis, and special features.
