MMMM – Monday August 9, 2010

This past weekend I was the producer/host of the 3rd Annual Carbon Valley Summer Festival held in the town where I live, Dacono.  The bill was very cool and featured some very legendary Colorado performers, including Flash Cadillac, Bobby Walker, Jurrassicasters featuring Dave Beegle, the Starlite Ramblers and a few others not of quite such legendary status.  One of the cool things that happened was that Warren Knight (leader, founder, Flash Cadillac) gave me a package of recordings from Coloradoans from the 60s … I spent a good part of yesterday and early this morning looking up all the titles for dates and labels, etc.

I’ve got a lot of work to do on the house this week so I’m going to take the time to cut edits today … sooooooooo if you want to hear these wonderful classics, please tune into the show the next several weeks, as I feature three or four tracks a show …
