Colorado Playlist – S10 EP20

To be honest I’m having a hard time collecting my thoughts this morning.  I’m still stunned by the horrifying events that took place in Orlando, Florida yesterday.  I won’t pontificate politically here.  I did enough of that on my FB page yesterday.  Yesterday took much of the luster off what was otherwise an excellent weekend of live local music for me.  Prayers for the family and friends.

This week’s MMMM includes tracks that have been highly praised among my friends in the press.  Joseph Tonelli, Pete Pidgeon & Arcoda and Medic all make this week’s new music entries.  Let me know which you would like me to keep in this week’s poll.


As much as I would hope that support comes easily it does not – anymore so than for anyone else in music.  I am deeply thankful to the Mishawaka Amphitheater for sponsoring this program – and to you for dropping a few bucks in the tip jar on occasion.  Thank you.  FUND ME.

If you’re a Colorado business engaged in music, music related activities, hemp, or other earth friendly products message me for information about how you can support this program.


Support for Chris K’s Colorado Playlist comes courtesy of The Historic Mishawaka Amphitheatre — Celebrating 100 yrs of music and dancing in the Poudre Canyon.

Presenting:  The 10th Anniversary Party of the Colorado Playlist AUG 7 @4PM w/ the RailbendersGOATZ! and the Liz Barnez Band.  All Ages.  Tickets $12 Advance / $15 DoS

Video Pick of the Week

In case you missed it, Nathaniel Rateliff was on E-Town this weekend with Gregory Alan Isakov.  It was really a special episode.  Thanks E-Town!


What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen to them again (or for the first time) and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist.

I conceived of this idea a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

NOTE:  In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.
