SOME OF THE BEST OF 2017 – SO FAR
We’re officially six months into 2017. I’ve added over 500 song titles to my potential airplay collection so far this year, or the equivalent of about 50 albums. I’ve taken in more than that, but given the time constraints of a 2 hour radio show, where I can at best program 13 songs an hour, not everything I’ve taken in makes the cut for airplay consideration.
**NOTE** Due to a programming snafu, the wrong episode of the CP was aired Sunday on 105.5 The Colorado Sound
A couple of DEBUT cuts made it into the show this week – one from Retrofette, who won the 2017 Westword Music Showcase Award for Best Pop band … and one from Instant Empire, that I’ve anxiously been waiting for, for some time now.
What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.
NOTE: In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp, Reverbnation or YouTube.
