Life is crazy right now. It’s summer. It’s concert/festival season. I’m booked out every night of the week it seems. This week’s show included the final episode of OFFSTAGE BEYOND THE MUSIC with June’s guest John Magnie of the Subdudes & Young Ancients. July’s guest is Freddi Gowdy, formerly of the Freddi Henchi Band, currently performing with Chris Daniels & the Kings.
I would normally be pulling spin data yesterday thru tomorrow for the 1st of the month NEWS NOTES & SPINS column … but I have made the decision to suspend that monthly post until further notice. There are a few reasons.
- I lost all my data for Jan, Feb, March, and May .. so 1/3 of the year’s data is gone.
- Fewer stations are playing enough current Colorado titles to make it worth my time to cull spins from their dj playlists.
- Fewer Colorado titles are being played than at any time in the five years I’ve been doing the monthly charts, again making it less worth the 1 1/2 days it takes for me to build that chart.
- And finally … I reformed my band, Goatz!, a tremendous time drain getting ready for our first show back on August 9 at the Mishawaka with Hazel Miller Band, Chris Daniels & the Kings w/ Freddi Gowdy, and my son’s band Williams Reserve. Here’s what our band is up to as we gear up for the event …
I will be emceeing every Thursday night as part of the Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live series in Fort Collins. This week is The Jurassicasters, featuring Dave Beegle.
