"I went to as many school dances during my time as a student in DPS as my parents would allow, but the institution of Prom cast a shadow of anticipation over them all. COVID 19 cant infect the Prom vision. KGNU Community Radio is inspired to celebrate the class of 2020, their accomplishments and bright futures, by providing one of Denvers top spinners DJ Erin Stereo and a special virtual video formal dance on Saturday May 2nd 6-9pm."

Dave Ashton, Denver Program Manager
