This is the last post of 2016. I will not post next Monday, the day after Christmas. If you haven’t done so yet, pls vote for your favorite albums and eps of 2016 at AND THE NOMINEES ARE! and the TOP 25 Videos of 2016.
Thank you for an incredible 2016. As you may know, this has been a very bittersweet year in the “house of goat.” Mrs Goat passed away on Feb 2, just as I sold the name “The Colorado Sound” to 105.5FM KJAC… and subsequently at the same time I was invited to go back on the air as a part time air talent at one of the best “rock” stations I’ve ever had the pleasure of jocking for, 105.5 The Colorado Sound. I cannot thank my friends at KJAC enough for this incredible opportunity.
I, and some of my closest friends, made a promise to our friend Pattie that the music would not stop… that I would continue to produce this show, and I would continue to play our songs out live… both activities that Pattie helped to forge and support throughout the past seventeen years. Neither this show nor the band GOATZ! would exist without her involvement and support. Pattie suffered a massive brain seizure on Dec 23 last year, due to melanoma cancer that metastasized in her brain, stomach and lungs.
The first song I played this week is one she wrote the lyrics for, Once Upon A Snowflake. She and our grand daughter used to tell the story to each other, and it turned into a song five years ago. Thanks to our friend John McVey at Coupe Studios (Boulder) for producing it.
My wish for this season is that you will share some of our incredible LOCAL music with your family and friends, and support the Colorado musicians by purchasing hard physical band merch and music and giving it as gifts. It’s not too late. For cds, visit Albums on the Hill in Boulder or Twist and Shout in Denver … two great stores owned and operated by a couple of great guys who love our scene.
Oskar Blues Fooderies! I won’t post again until Jan 2, but I hope you’ll come hang out with me at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on New Year’s Eve … Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene is playing… and if you prefer a bit more twang to your rock and country, check out Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams at the Original Grill and Brew in Lyons.
