WOW … I’m finding it hard to believe that we’re almost 1/3 of the way through the year already. It probably shouldn’t come as any surprise that the top two 2018 Colorado album releases being played statewide are
1. Tearing At the Seams – Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats
2. Something Higher! – Leftover Salmon
I’ve said this before, and it’s worth repeating: a dj can’t play and a writer can’t write about what they don’t have. I notice there are a ton of titles that do not make their way to radio stations and “print” publications around the region.
So as far as that goes it’s actually been a rather quiet week. Next weekend will likely be a different story.
Friday and Saturday is the 10th Annual FOCOMX. 300 acts in some 30 venues … it marks the UNOFFICIAL start of the festival season every year. If you’ve never been I encourage it. My band, GOATZ!, will be appearing at Tony’s Rooftop on Saturday at 7PM.
A NEW STATION is coming on board beginning MAY 1 … KAFM Grand Junction will air the show on the following schedule:
HOUR 1 = Saturday night at midnight + 11AM Tues morning
HOUR 2 = Sunday night at midnight + 11AM Friday morning.
VIDEO PICK(s) of the Week
There are actually 2 video picks this week. The new one from Leftover Salmon is below as part of this week’s MMMM. This one from The Hunger Artist deserves its own recognition
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
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.
