CP S13 EP16 2019

Monday April 15, 2019

There’s not enough time or space in the show to play every new piece of music I receive.  #firstworldproblem I usually try to get 2 debuts in every hour, as well as a (N) new track from a previous debut.  But right now, we’re fat with new music emanating from the Centennial State.

I put in a couple extra new tracks this week, where usually I’d be able to play a cut or two from already played albums or singles I’d like to give more airtime to.  Because, really, repetition breeds familiarity, which is how hits are made. Let me know which of the new songs you think I should keep in the Playlist.

Many thanks and big love to Westword, SceneNoCO and Bandwagon Magazine for the articles about me and my debut.  And many many thanks to the folks at Bohemian for inviting my band GOATZ! to play at Magic Rat this past week, and at Washington’s FoCO opening for Blackhawk on May 12.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Sometimes you write a song and it takes years to mature to what it’s meant to be …sorta like a fine wine or whiskey.  “Hold On Me” is a song written by Taylor Sims, one half of the Taylor and Bonnie Sims duo that makes up the core of Bonnie & the Clydes.  Taylor originally wrote it for his old band, Springcreek Bluegrass.  In this more “country” arrangement, the couple dives straight into the story.

CP S13 EP15 2019

Monday April 8, 2019

When I started doing this show 13 years ago this weekend, I had already been booking bands and or consulting on Colorado talent for a handful of years.  It was because of those bands, bands such as Yo, Flaco!, Love.45, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, DeVotchKa and countless others, that I thought I was seeing something very special in our state.

When the Fray hit big with How to Save A Life in 2005, it wasn’t the first time a Colorado band hit big, but it was by far the biggest a Colorado band had ever hit.  By 2015, the single How to Save A Life, became the 4th best-selling song in digital music history.  OneRepublic came along and destroyed those records with Apologize in 2007 and Counting Stars in 2014, a song that is still by far the biggest hit in Colorado Music History.

I look forward to seeing that lies ahead for us as our scene continues to explode nationally, and internationally.  One thing to look forward to this is the BEST OF THE DECADE … I’ll start working on that here soon.  In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out this week’s MMMM and vote to either KEEP or DELETE the songs from the Colorado Playlist.

The Flip Side VIP Playlist Side A: The Interview w/ Chris K.

Hi gang.  A couple of weeks ago I did an interview with Michael Spearnak on 88.9FM KRFC Radio Fort Collins for his program The Flip Side VIP Playlist Side A: The Interview.  I just got permission to share this with you.  It aired on Wednesday March 20 at 6pm.  The Flip Side VIP Playlist Side B: The Playlist airs Wednesday March 27 at 6PM and focuses on the music that Michael has selected to showcase my life.

KRFC is where the Colorado Playlist got its start in April 2006.  Thanks to all of the incredible friends there who have supported me and my cause the past 13+ years.

WOW! It’s going to be pushing 75 degrees on Wednesday … ok, I got that out of my system.  I drive a convertible.  I need the sun (and copious amounts of SPF 100 sunscreen).

Besides producing and hosting the Colorado Playlist, I also front my own project called GOATZ! (appropo, yes?)  Honestly, I’ve struggled over the decision to air my own work on my show.  I don’t know if I will or won’t if for no other reason than there is so much tremendous music hitting the in-box; I keep pushing mine off to the back of the line.  That said, here’s my six song debut, Sweet Inspiration.

Earlier this season I posted that KFFR (Winter Park) will be adding the show to their programming.  Last week I appeared on Steve Skinner’s show to talk about my debut record.  He informed me while on the air that they will be adding the Colorado Playlist, hopefully in April .. or as soon as they move into their new studios.

The Colorado Playlist is funded partly by the sponsors on this page along with whatever tips I get from you via the funding and sponsorship page.  Other funding comes from whatever money I can personally contribute – so if you’re inclined, and you like the debut, I’d be grateful if you’d download for whatever amount you’d like.  And thank you.

Over the past several years a handful of hip-hop bands from the region have risen to my attention.  Animated Earth rises to my attention on the strength of several members from bands such as Michal Menert, The Pretty Fantastics, Sassfactory, Grim & Darling, Whiskey Blanket, Glitta Kings and Equally Challenged to name a handful, including such notables as Jordan Polovina (MPC, vocals and cello) and Jessa Raskin (vocals, guitar and slide) who last teamed up in Grim & Darling.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

If there’s one element about 80’s pop rock that seemed rather ubiquitous throughout it was androgyny. Most knew the style as “glam rock” and Denver’s Love Stallion nails it to the core.  In Valentine, the third video single from the band’s “Unforgettable Ride” debut, lead singer Aaron Hart allows his girlfriend, his Valentine, to transform him into a glamorously  ambiguous performer, resplendent in his form fitting spandex, teased up feathered hair, lipstick and bangles, while belting out what might have risen to hit FM rock radio status circa 1985.
