CO Playlist – S12 EP05 2018

Three big stories came out this past week.  Elephant Revival announced an “indefinite hiatus,” Chris Daniels made a public announcement that he’s the new executive director of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame and KRFC executive James Lopez resigned.

Elephant Revival posted that “The band has been dealing with some family matters that have led us to reassess and realize that, while we’ve all been putting so much energy into Elephant Revival, we need some time to reconnect with our loved ones and focus on personal growth.”

The entire statement from the band is posted on their FB page.

Chris Daniels was inducted into the CMHOF in 2013, and also served as executive director for Swallow Hill music before becoming a professor in the music industry studies program at UC Denver.  He replaces former Denver Post music reporter and critic, and author of Colorado’s Rock Chronicles G. Brown.  No reason has been given yet for the change in leadership at the CMHOF.  

KRFC Fort Collins will be looking for a new executive director.  James Lopez announced he’s stepping down after only six months on the job.  KRFC Board Chair Kate Hawthorne-Jeracki is noted as saying that the board will be looking for someone who can get the station “to the next level with funding and things like that.”
