Whether you turn to us for new music, listen to your friends over the airwaves, or host a show yourself, Radio 1190 has something for you.

College radio goes far beyond broadcasting. It’s about counterculture, community and creativity. Volunteers help with audio production, art, journalism and way more, too, all the while earning hours toward becoming a DJ.

We host tons of events throughout the year such as First Thursdays in partnership with the CU Art Museum and live music at Innisfree on the Hill. Whatever your thing may be, come find us in the basement of the UMC to check out the studio or get involved.

Tune in to 1190 AM Denver or 98.9 FM Boulder, or visit

Here’s a little preview of what to expect on the air.

Degrees of Separation

Hosted by Alan Tett

5 to 6 p.m. Thursdays

Alan is chill, erudite and full of facts. His show Degrees of Separation explores the community of side projects and collaborations of respected independent artists, anything from Grimes to Fleet Foxes. With a new artist every week, there’s tons to learn.

News Underground

Hosted by Jared Bahir Browsh

6 to 7 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

News Underground is an 1190 staple, bringing you a fresh take on news three times a week. The show often hosts guests and interviews and always has something compelling to say. News Underground consistently delivers accurate and thought-provoking content.

The Morning Show

Hosted by Lily Hetherington

7 to 10 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays

We have several morning show hosts, and we encourage you to listen every morning. Radio 1190 works hard to provide the best independent music to make your morning commute go by a little faster. Lily is an excellent host — she’s friendly and witty, and she’s been in the DJ game for quite a while. Definitely tune in to make your morning a little brighter.

Local Shakedown

Hosted by Grace Eun Cho

4 to 6 p.m. Fridays

Local Shakedown always has and always will be the best show on Radio 1190. Hosts and times may change, but 1190 has always strived to maintain a genuine connection with local music in Colorado, and we continue to do so every week. Listen every Friday for a plethora of new music from your own backyard and live, in-studio performances almost every week. Grace has the voice of an angel and unparalleled taste. Turn your dial to Local Shakedown to discover tons of new music and support your community.

Party With Me Punker

Hosted by Bodhi Shane Melnitzer

4 to 5 p.m. Wednesdays

Party With Me Punker is not for the fainthearted. It is, however, for the punks, freaks, outcasts and fools who want to have a good ol’ time listening to punk. Bodhi, who has been collecting punk records for decades, plays all vinyl and encourages listeners to sing or, better, scream the lyrics along with him over the AM airwaves. Check it out for vinyl, fun and impeccable punk knowledge.
