The Colorado Sound S8|EP39 2014

Chris K profile pic Oct 2014It’s really hard to write and watch the Broncos … lol.  Okay.  They won.  So, we lost a station.  Seems KFVR, The Fever, in Pueblo is gone.  That’s it …they just disappeared.  Time to lobby Colorado Springs to get the show on in SoCO.  Would love it if KRCC picked up the show.  Congrats to my friend, Greta Cornett, who passed a few dozen worthy candidates to become the new marketing director at the Fox and Boulder theaters.  For those who don’t know Greta – she was the founder of the Fort Collins Musician Association (FOCOMA), the talent buyer at Road34 for a few years, and a member of three of NoCO’s top bands over the past decade, Mama Lenny & the Remedy, the 3 Twins Broadband, and 12 Cents for Marvin.  She most recently married Dayton Hicks, the bassist for the fabulous Fierce Bad Rabbit.

A few new music shares this week from Strange Americans, Lion Drome, and Paa Kow.  If you’re a fan of the Epilogues, the Lion Drome cut features Chris Heckman on vocals.  Lion Drome is former thrash/shed guitarist Mike Lopez from Loveland, produced by legendary NoCO guitarist and record producer Dave Beegle… turning up the 90s alt-rock/U2 vibe.


No new videos came to my attention the past couple of weeks, so I tweaked The Colorado Sound TV.  Check out the playlist … hope you’ll view a few videos.

One thought on “The Colorado Sound S8|EP39 2014”

  1. Just an edit or two on the Lion Drome info: “shred” guitarist and I am from Fort Collins. Thanks so much Chris for featuring the track “Nite is On”. Awesome! I’m currently in the midst of putting a live element together. Auditioning drummers this Saturday. Hopefully LD live in ’15! – Mike Lopez
