Can only stop in briefly this week. We had company in from out of state, so we took them out to see some live music, and visit Red Rocks and Pikes Peak. Of course the car had plenty of Colorado music on board. Enjoy this week’s Monday Morning Music Meeting.
On another note, I continued to purge old records from the library I haven’t played in years, and while doing so I rediscovered some titles I haven’t played and perhaps should be. Cleaning out closets is always fun, isn’t it?
Happy 2nd birthday to 105.5 The Colorado Sound. It’s been one of my deepest honors, after nearly 40 years associated with radio and music in Northern Colorado, to be a part of this incredible station. I can’t thank my friends Neil Best, Robert Leja, and Benji McPhail enough for bringing me into the family over two years ago now, when they asked to buy my old show name “the Colorado Sound” and include me in the on-air team.
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
I’m always amazed by the talent of our youngest members in the music scene. Taylor is just graduating high school, will be attending CSU in the fall, and is set to explode on the scene …
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.
