AfterFM is the 24/7 music channel of KGNU AM & FM in Denver & Boulder. KGNU's terrestrial signal plays a mix of music and news programs. AfterFM's audio feed plays an alternate schedule of music programming when the studio switches over to news. The result is a non-stop stream of unique and overlooked music. AfterFM is also the central HQ for all of KGNU's music archives, interviews, and features. In short, if you're looking for music, you've found the right website.

24 Hours a day, 7 days a week. The music never stops on AfterFM.
