Colorado Playlist S10 EP31 2016

Monday is the proverbial worst day of the week, yes?  Like that’s the day everyone historically bitches about because everyone goes back to work on Monday – right?  LOL … days run together for me, but Monday can pretty much suck regardless.  Today, I was anxious to get back to my daily gym routine – up at 6:30, at the gym by 7:30 … yeah, no … gym closed this week for cleaning.  Goat can’t get a break sometimes, I swear.

New music shares this week from Zach Heckendorf, Edison, and  Eros and the Eschaton from Colorado Springs.  I expect we’ll hear a lot from all three acts over the next several months.  All three represent some of the best of what is being exported from the scene right now.   Word to those acts with no music shares this week … it means they have nothing on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Reverbnation, or YouTube to share.

20160822_101457I have T-SHIRTS — LIMITED EDITION (only 35) 10th Anniversary “Colorado Playlist” … $15 includes shipping.  Order by emailing me at .. I accept PAYPAL only.  Please state size and mailing address when ordering.



I conceived of this idea as 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.

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.

It’s not a competition.  It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week.  You can select as many as you think I should keep in the “playlist.”
