The new downtown offices of Colorado Public Radio News are at 303 17th Avenue.

Colorado Public Radio turned 50 this year, and to mark it we did stories about the state then and now. To kick off the retrospective, host Ryan Warner and producer Xandra McMahon dig through the CPR archives for radio and state history. Then, how Colorado came to be known as the “Napa Valley of beer.” And how the state’s music has changed in half a century.
