What does HD Radio mean to me?
HD Radio is a groundbreaking new digital technology that produces the highest quality audio available. With HD Radio, you’ll hear crystal clear reception and CD-quality sound on our classical and news stations.

How is HD Radio different from regular radio?
The new technology effectively eliminates noise, interference and fades (also known as multipath interference) from our FM signal, and greatly reduces these problems for AM. If you’ve experienced static on a standard radio at home, or while driving around town or waiting at a red light, you’ll appreciate the clear, consistent sound HD Radio delivers.

What else does HD Radio do?
Digital radio allows Colorado Public Radio to offer two distinct program "channels" simultaneously, with consistently high sound quality. You can hear KCFR's news and information programming on the 90.1 FM HD1 channel. Our second channel, HD2, brings you KVOD's 24-hour classical music broadcast. An HD Radio receiver is needed to listen to these broadcasts.

Which CPR stations transmit HD Radio?

  • • KCFR, Denver (90.1 FM after July 9)
  • • KCFR HD-1 (News)
  • • KVOD HD-2 (Classical)
  • • KCFC, Boulder (1490 AM)
