Colorado Playlist – S10 EP22 June 2016

As July approaches, I am getting increasingly excited for what’s on the way.  Here’s a great list of local/regional festivals – some of which feature Colorado talent significantly.  Looking forward particularly to Bohemian Nights at New West Fest in August – the first time in 12 years it’s been ALL Colorado.  YAY!  <goat jig>.

This column is late today because I just spent 90 minutes on the phone being interviewed for an upcoming Denver Post article … looking fwd to that .. coming I believe in the first week of July .. be on the watch for that.

New music this week is from previously debuted albums by Joseph Tonelli,  Bonnie & the Clydes, Pete Pidgeon and Arcoda, and the Motet. 

Coming soon, new music from Durango’s Cannondolls, Magic Music (formed in the early 70s and just now getting around to an album), the Rifters out of Alamosa and northern NM, and Dechen Hawk’s Jus’ Sayin’ .


Chris Daniels is among our more valued musical treasures.  Here he is in an episode of eTown – another jewel in our musical landscape.  “Eldorado Canyon” is where the band Magic Music lived in the early ’70s, in an ice cream truck and a school bus.  Coming soon – the first ever Magic Music album — 40 years in the making.


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

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.
