Denver Radio: The DROP Moves To 104.7 FM

R&B and Hip-Hop station THE DROP begins broadcasting on its brand-new dial position, K284CI 104.7 FM, on February.

Now Coloradans searching for old school crate classics, new vibe music and Colorado’s hottest independent artists can tune their radios to 104.7 FM from their homes, cars and smart devices.

THE DROP debuted in June 2019 as one of the country’s first public media urban alternative radio stations with a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

Already garnering accolades such as Westword magazine’s “Best New Radio Station of 2020”, the community continues to show support and appreciation for THE DROP 104.7’s organic and relaxed nature. Suggestions, taken directly from listeners via social media and the station text line at 303.893.DROP, frame the music mix and content of the shows hosted by DJ Dif’Rent, Amerykah Jones, Unique, DJ Bella Scratch, Maleman and weekend hosts, DJ Cavem and PK.

Nikki Swarn, THE DROP’s general manager and program director, says, “This station has always been about the people. From our name to how we engage with our listeners, it’s all about our Colorado community. Without this local support our 104.7 FM signal wouldn’t be as impactful. This is such a special time for public media especially here in Colorado. We owe a huge thanks to our community, our listeners and our partners for helping make this possible.”

“104.7 THE DROP is so much more than a radio station,” Swarn continued, “We are truly a lifestyle brand. The station provides a place in the media landscape for a variety of musical genres and reinforces a sense of community for a diverse listenership. Listeners can DROP into the music, cultural issues and community resources in one place. It’s a movement built by and for the people of Colorado.”

“We are thrilled to make an investment in acquiring the 104.7 FM radio home for THE DROP,” said Amanda Mountain, president and CEO of Rocky Mountain Public Media.
