What a weekend. GOATZ! played 3 shows in 3 days .. AND the Colorado Playlist is back on the airwaves at 94.3FM in Summit County!
Saturday, GOATZ! was part of the Wellington Main Street Concert Series with Grateful Dead tribute band Switchman Sleepin’. A magnificent evening with a cool breeze and about 500 people enjoying themselves in small town Colorado park – complete with local vendors and local beer. Doesn’t get much more American … or Colorado … than that.
Sunday we spent the day in Fort Collins as part of Walrus Ice Cream 30th Anniversary – a Benefit for Adoption Dreams Come True, an organization I’m deeply indebted to for helping me adopt my oldest daughter Shannon. Thanks to Channel 7 News Anchor Shannon Ogden for swinging by for a 30 minute set of his own music … dude’s got skillz folks.
Most people who follow the Colorado Playlist are mostly familiar with my on-air work over 39 years in NoCO, and not in my role as leader of GOATZ! In fact, the upcoming 11th Anniversary party also marks my 39th year in Colorado radio. I started out at 1310AM KFKA and 96.1FM KFKZ in Greeley, 39 years ago, before moving onto 99.1FM KUAD (Quad 99 – the Power Station)
