#COMUSIC – TOP 30 NOV 2021

DECEMBER 1, 2021 -Every week I track thirteen of the state’s twenty plus public, community and college radio stations; eleven thanks to Spinitron.

Tracking is not an exact science. Not every dj at every station publishes a playlist and not every station utilizes the automatic playlist generator provided by Spinitron.

I tracked two hundred fifty titles in November: One hundred twelve received at least one spin on one station in Colorado. All titles are current since November 2020.

Monday NOV 29, 2021 – I hope you had a great weekend. While we were all indulging in the fixings and trappings that go with the start of the end of year holiday seasons, I posted the 12th Annual Colorado Playlist Listener Poll.

Categories include Album (LP/EP), Alternative/Indie, Americana/Country, Blues/Rock/R&B, Cover/Remake, Duo or Band, Female, Folk/Singer-Songwriter, Funk/Soul/R&B, Jazz Album, Male, New Artist/Band, Pop/Light Rock, Rock/Hard Rock/Punk, Single Release

The Burroughs and the Velveteers show up again in this week’s TOP 5, and there shouldn’t be any surprise who tops the TOP 30 coming out in a few days.

Monday NOV 22, 2021 – Happy Thanksgiving (yeah, I’m a few days early). Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Personally, I’m thankful for my incredible partner in life, my children, COLORADO music and radio, and YOU! Thank you for listening to the show and reading the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM).

BIG changes in the TOP 5 weekly spins this week. Yes, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and the Lumineers are still dominant; while the Velveteers dropped down to #10, replaced by LOS MOCOCHETES, with Colorado jamband MAGIC BEANS filling in the #5 position this week.

I don’t usually debut (D) a release that is over a year old, but the album “The Offering” from Southern Colorado Americana country-folk singer-songwriter Xanthe Alexis struck a nerve with me this past couple of weeks and I wanted to share it. The album was originally released in August 2020 to tremendous praise from Americana reviewers around the country and for good reason. Check out the single The Offering below. Let me know what you think.

Monday NOV 15, 2021 – There are a lot of places to see live music along the northern Front Range from Denver to Fort Collins. Recently we attended a show at the Brighton Armory, owned and operated by the City of Brighton.

The Armory hosts a variety of music and other programs. The venue is a beautiful 300 capacity room with exquisite sound and lighting elements with regional original art on the walls. Most shows are set up for seating in nicely padded seats while leaving room at the back of the house for those who like to dance.

We recently attended the The Petty Nicks Experience at the Brighton Armory. The Petty Nicks Experience is one of Colorado’s leading tribute bands. Adrienne Osborn plays the role of Stevie Nicks, and out-Stevies the now 73 year old Stevie Nicks. Julian Fulco Perron portrays the late Tom Petty in the show and brings both a reasonable look and vocal style to Petty classics. Here’s a video I took at the show.

Picture by Chris K. from our most recent trip to Ouray.

Monday NOV 08, 2021 – When it’s early November and 75 degrees and sunny on a Sunday, that’s a top down drive kinda day. We took a long drive down through Garden of the Gods and up into the foothill, where we wound up at the Bucksnort Saloon in Pine for a set of live music. Not sure I’ll see it again in 2021.

So, call it 2022. At least for new releases. I spent part of the weekend filtering the “best” of Colorado as aired at the thirteen stations I survey weekly. Watch for the annual listener poll where you can lend your voice to the stations around the state.

I’m also not sure anything is going to bump Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, The Lumineers and The Velveteers from the top of the spins charts until next year. It’s the #4 and #5 spots where we’re likely to see a weekly contest. Animal Electricity and Kiltro are trending high enough in airplay to hold onto the fourth and fifth chart position for another couple of weeks.
