Local Gold: Colorado's Best Music

Since our very first broadcasts in 1978, KGNU has been dedicated to creating opportunities for local musicians to take over the airwaves. Local Gold highlights some of the greatest artists of our local community here on the front range of the Rockies. These in-studio performances and interviews give a small sample of the wealth of musical talent right here in the Denver and Boulder area. We strongly encourage you to explore these archives and get to know these amazing musicians.
