The Star Spangled Radio Hour


KEZW and the Glenn Miller Archive at the University of Colorado present the Star Spangled Radio Hour every Saturday night at 6 p.m. Hosts Rick Crandall and Dennis Spragg introduce live big band radio broadcast from the 30s and 40s each week that likely haven't been heard since they originally aired. It's an amazing look into a time capsule from the big band era and it's heard exclusively on AM 1430!


We've got a bit of a new look. The latest shows will appear in the feed above. Enjoy! 

Do you remember the joy of sitting by an old wood radio and listening to the timeless music of the big bands and singers of the 40? Maybe you’re too young and always wondered what it must have been like to read by the light of the old Philco while band after band broadcast live from around the country. That’s exactly the experience you get with The Star Spangled Radio Hour on KEZW.

KEZW’s Rick Crandall is joined by Dennis Spragg of the Glenn Miller Archive every Saturday night for an hour of pure nostalgia. Dennis digs deep into the collection of the GMA at the University of Colorado and brings two broadcast remotes each week. Some were broadcast on Armed Forces Radio exclusively for the troops overseas during WWII. Others were radio broadcasts heard coast-to-coast in the 40’s. Each week we share the history of the artists and songs and take you on a magical journey to big bands golden days.

The Star Spangled Radio Hour is a production of KEZW-CU GMA Presents and is heard exclusively on America’s #1 Big Band station, Studio 1430. Join us this week!!!
