Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

As if we don't have enough to be thankful for already being blessed to live here in God's country, the land of eternal sunshine and medicinal mary jane, here's something else to give thanks for this week. This Thursday, Open Air 1340 AM, the freshly minted Colorado Public Radio station on the AM dial, will be playing local music exclusively all day long. And from the sounds of it, from the time the Colorado-centric playlist begins at 6 a.m. until it winds down at 8 p.m., we can expect to hear a broad range of tunes from everyone from Nathaniel Rateliff to Glenn Miller.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
