OpenAir: an interactive history

Since first hitting the airwaves on October 31, 2011, OpenAir has made a huge splash in the local music community. By providing programming that reflects the eclectic tastes of our listeners, hosting numerous events promoting music and the arts, and joining forces with the best and brightest music makers and fans, OpenAir has made a name for itself as Colorado’s top voice in new music.

Looking back, we can safely say our first two-plus years have been a smashing success, and it’s all thanks to you, our listeners. OpenAir and Colorado Public Radio could not exist without the amazing generosity of our listener-supporters, who are our most secure source of funding.

Whether you’re a long-time listener or a new fan, take a look through our interactive timeline to familiarize yourself with some of the finest moments in our brief but remarkable history. You’ll find a wide range of content, including photos, videos, stories, and audio streams.

Each and every one of these accomplishments was made possible by supporters past and present, and the OpenAir story can only continue with your support.

The future is bright for OpenAir: we hope you’ll join us for the ride. Pledge now to show your support for OpenAir.
