Radio is good in Denver

It's the birthplace of the Jack-FM franchise. But the best news for oddball music fans like me is KCUV-FM 102.3. It's a 6,000-watt station in Greenwood Village that speaks to me. Where else will you hear the sorta standard AAA-classic rock tunes alongside Ry Cooder and Dave Brubeck and NRBQ? And Buddy Miller and Waylon and Lucinda and Richard Thompson and it keeps going. Today they played a song by Robert Gordon ... the Human Elvis Decanter! I've heard Blasters songs I'd forgotten about. And Gatemouth Brown's original "Okie Dokie Stomp." The 1950 recording.

There are a few dogs here and there, but I'm entranced. Check out the playlist.
