You can find the Five Points Media Center at 29th and Welton, housing Channel 12 (KBDI), the local public TV station; KUVO, a jazz station; and Free Speech TV. Jazz stations are getting more rare these days, so check out KUVO sometime.

Here’s more of that mural:

And here’s another mural closer to downtown:

Note the Mini Market at the right side of the picture. There are several of those in Five Points. I don’t know where the nearest grocery store is. In fact, near Five Points itself (where the four streets meet), I don’t think there’s a good spot. Any full-service grocery store would have to be located nearer downtown, in a space that’s now a parking lot.

    I know there’s a Safeway near Park Avenue and Washington. Is that the one you mean?

    Yup, as you can see on the map. It’s actually only 4 blocks from Five Points.

    I didn’t see that on the map; it just showed Five Points. But no matter; I know which one you mean.

    And make sure to listen to KUVO from 11 p.m.-1 a.m. on Sunday nights for Jazz on the Edge — the best, wildest free/avant-garde/outsider jazz you’ll ever hear on the radio. I’m not a part of it; I’m just a big fan.

    In 1967 the music store you show here was called the Denver Folklore Center, and if you played two songs you got in free on saturday night. It was filled with great folk artists, and one of the centers for the hippie crowd. Great memories.

    Michael, which store? The one that now houses KUVO, or the one with the mural of the sax player on the side?
