KVOD Denver-Boulder (Web-radio / Internet)

Radio Station KVOD  in  Denver-Boulder, Colorado (USA) was logged on 3 July 2013. This Colorado Public Radio station plays classical  music 24/7. An Internet stream of their broadcast may be heard at Reception is generally at   64 kps in mp3 format. Broadcast was monitored using a Blackberry Bold 9700 with TuneIn Radio application. 

I actually grew up listening to KVOD when the station was located on Ruby Hill. I credit announcers John Wolfe and Gene Amole for introducing me to the classical music world of Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, Rossini et al. I remember especially well Amole broadcasting from Larimer Square. He called his segment In The Square at Café Promenade and birds twittered in the background while he chatted up his audience. One of his oft-played songs was Mannheim Steamroller’s Toota Lute, which while not classical music per se, certainly complemented the format. These guys had panache, and were just as classy as the music they played for their listeners. 

Whether a response will be forthcoming is anyone's guess. Nevertheless, a reception report was submitted on-line. Surprisingly KVOD (Coloradio Public Radio) did reply with this QSL Letter on 5 July 2013.
