Colorado Playlist S10 EP45 DEC 2016

I don’t often get a chance to go out for an entire day to see a batch of new up and coming bands – unless I’m working the event.  Sunday I spent the day at Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins to see friends, and to immerse myself in seven hours of music from 10 bands, only three of which I knew anything about.

The event was the annual Scene Magazine “Fresh Talent Showcase,” a judged event that awarded the winner time in a recording studio, along with a pro grade photo shoot, a pro level consulting session with Yellowbright, and a slot on the Scene Magazine stage at the 2017 Arise Festival in Loveland next August.

Write Minded took home the top prize, but all of the bands brought game … Congrats to everyone who participated.

Colorado Music History – Warren Zevon and Boulder

Trusted Ear Scene Report with Dave Herrera


The Colorado Playlist is funded by the contributions of individual donations, and business sponsorship.  Occasionally, a sponsorship opportunity comes up.

Now seeking sponsorship of the “In Colorado Music History” segment of the show.  “In Colorado Music History” airs at the top of each hour of the show.  A segment is also featured each week here.

Entering its 11th year, Chris K’s Colorado Playlist is heard on KJAC (Northern Front Range and Steamboat Springs), KRFC (NoCO), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KDNK (Carbondale, Aspen, Glenwood Springs, Idaho Springs), KZYR (Vail, Edwards), KOTO (Telluride,Hudson), KSUT (Durango, Pagosa Springs) and KLZR (Westcliffe)

For more sponsorship information, contact me at or call me at (720) 381-6455.


besides writing and performing original music both as the leader of the Patti Fiasco, and as part of the country-folk duo Whipporwill, Alysia Kraft is not above giving us her own personal interpretations of other songwriters’ songs.


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.
