Iris Berkeley

Iris Berkeley likes to connect the dots — between forever favorites and fresh new releases, between unexpected genres and categories, between local darlings and new sounds from across the globe.

Iris cut her teeth in radio as one of the first DJs at the launch of legendary college station KVCU Radio 1190 (Boulder, Colo.) way back in 1998, with later adventures as a selector and music journalist taking her to LA, Boston, and a magical handful of years in London in the early oughts. Fast-forward to today, and she’s on air in Denver/Boulder for a variety of programs on KGNU-FM (including a regular slot on the Afternoon Sound Alternative) and Radio Rethink, as well as back on Radio 1190 for the weekly Jetset Underground. In 2022 and 2023, she was voted Readers’ Choice for Best Radio DJ in Westword’s Best of Denver poll.


Modern Jetset

Come fly the fancy skies! Iris Berkeley is your pilot for Modern Jetset, a round-the-world trip from soul to synthpop, reggae to R&B, Latin to lounge, and more.
