It’s not Monday morning.  It’s actually Monday evening, as I’m just now getting caught up from a long weekend of music events.  Thanks to everyone who came out to the 10th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival and to the 11th Anniversary of the Colorado Playlist at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre, our primary sponsor of the show.

Despite the rain both days, we all had plenty of fun.  Even though Cracker got rained out, big hugs to Anita at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont for allowing us to bring Cracker over for a late night set.

I still have appearances this summer; so I do hope you’ll come out and catch some great live Colorado music.

  • Aug 11-13 = I’ll be on the Mountain Ave main stage at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, that will feature Leftover Salmon on Friday night.  Coincidentally, Cracker, with whom Leftover Salmon recorded “Oh, Cracker, Where Art Thou” several years ago will be on the Library Park Stage at the same time.
  • Aug 19 = Wellington Downtown Concert Series w/Hey Lady the wonderful B52s tribute band.

Sept 9 = GOATZ! and Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins

Sept 10 = GOATZ! at Oskar Blues Original Grill and Brew in Lyons 

Big news and rumors of big news have been making the rounds here recently.  First of all, it is true that Colorado native and original member of Poco, Rusty Young, who played in Boenzee Cryque in the 60s has a new solo record coming out.  For many years he’s fronted the name Poco – and I say fronted because the other original members, including Richie Furay have long distanced themselves.  At any rate, the album is due out September 18.

In the rumor column — is Paper Bird about to fly apart? Hmmmm… rumors have been swirling for a few weeks, and even Paper Bird member Paul DeHaven has stepped out with a new solo effort.  While I have not confirmed the rumor, my sources are indeed extremely reliable.  I included the new Paul DeHaven single in this week’s show.



I don’t play metal or hardcore on the show, but I could not resist sharing this excellent track with you this week. Enjoy



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.
