CP S15:40 2021

Monday Oct 04, 2021 – We’re about a month away from the start of the 2022 new release year. What are some of your favorite songs so far since last November? What are some of your favorite full length LPs or EPs? Comment to let me know.

You can find 100 of the TOP currents at CP 2021 on Spotify. That playlist changes somewhat regularly, but will lock down on or about November 4th.

Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller had a great run in the TOP 5 the past several weeks and are sure to find themselves among the TOP 20 for year’s end based on spins around the state.

The Lumineers new album won’t officially be released until early in 2022, but the new single is receiving copious amounts of airplay at both Indie 102.3 and 105.5 The Colorado Sound, landing them at #1 this week.

Expect Kiltro to reign the TOP 5 for November, along with the Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats and the Velveteers, both of whom have new albums dropping in October and November respectively. Nightmare Daydream from the Velveteers will drop on Oct 8.

Not all charts are the same. The TOP 5 Colorado album spins at Roots Music Report looks a lot different than the TOP 5 here, where the Night Hawks have run up to the #1 spot and Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller fall to #5 .. Reverend Freakchild, Leftover Salmon and Eddie Turner round out their TOP 5 this week.

Colorado TOP 30 SPT 2021

OCTOBER 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 OVER two hundred titles in September; ninety-eight received at least one spin on one station in Colorado. All titles are current since September 2020.

UGH .. yes, I am saying UGH to this Monday morning. Late night last night .. hot today and I’m doing triple duty on the show, renovating my house for sale and getting ready to move … UGH .. I could use a few 70 degree days to keep me cool.

That said, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats and Chris Daniels + Hazel Miller are still dominating Colorado radio spins in the weekly TOP 5, despite Dechen Hawk and Francis & the Wolf showing up this week in the TOP 5, and Morsel making their debut.

It’s September 27. We’re about six weeks away from the 2022 new release year beginning in early November. Hit up the Spotify CP 2021 playlist to review some of what make this year’s best of.

CP S15:EP38 2021

MONDAY September 20 2021 – I put the mask back on. It’s a reminder that COVID is not over with us. #COMUSIC – support.

I woke up and drove west towards my “office” this morning and saw snow on the upper peaks, as if I needed a reminder that today/tomorrow is officially the start of autumn – oh, and it was 50 degrees outside. Today’s high = maybe 70. Tomorrow’s high = 70. The final live outdoor show of my season was Saturday. Welcome to autumn.

In roughly eight weeks we’ll begin the march towards the annual SOME OF THE BEST OF THE COLORADO PLAYLIST and the LISTENER BEST OF. R U READY?

I’m sure it will come as no surprise that new releases from the Lumineers (out today) and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats will be at or near the top of our Best Of consideration, but new releases from Colorado legends Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller featuring Hazel’s long time keyboardist Dana Marsh and friends, and Leftover Salmon are sure to be contenders based on in-state radio airplay.

2021 may go down as the YEAR of JAZZ in Colorado with several incredible releases … including new releases from long time friend Mer Sal who connected with the legendary Scott Kinsey (Tribal Tech) for Adjustments, and one from Colorado drummer / composer Brennen Schedler called Keep Steppin Down – find both in CP JAZZ 2021 on Spotify.
