Host Kai Turner makes Sundays especially holy, with three hours of choice three-chord music from 7 to 10 p.m. each Sabbath. Turner has taste and does his homework, bringing both established blues stars and unsung heroes to local ears. And he's not afraid to spin a few things that stretch his show's handle by a few bars.

On her Gospel Chime, Madame Andrews provides a Sunday service like no other by playing the very best in soul-stirring music from 7 to 9 a.m. Andrews -- a holy crooner herself -- spins old and new heavenly tunes and gives the faithful a valid excuse for skipping church. Can we get a witness?

Each Monday night at 7, Boulder's big-hearted, volunteer-run station lets local acts command its airwaves. The resulting Cabaret is a rare hour of live radio and a chance for area players to reach an equally rare audience. A public-service program of the finest sort.

Esteemed trumpeter and local luminary Hugh Ragin is arguably the area's most accomplished jazz performer, if not its most active. The Fort Collins-based educator is a traditionalist, equally at home fast-boppin' as he is dabbling with neo-swing, rendering a soulful ballad, or flat-out improvising. Combining a freethinker's multi-layered sensibility with simple monster chops, Ragin has spanned collaborating with the Art Ensemble of Chicago and Sun Ra to composing electronic pieces for Pauline Oliveros's Deep Listening Band. A recent tribute to Philly horn-blower Lee Morgan plus the exquisite release of An Afternoon in Harlem made 1999 a memorable year for the ever-widening support of Raginomics.

Many solid locally oriented music sites have popped up over the past few years, but denver-rocks.com remains the URL of choice for the sheer volume of information contained in its many pages.
