Monday Dec 31, 2018 – HAPPY NEW YEAR. I was so excited for this year’s BEST OF I jumped the gun a week in labeling the show. I also got confused. The show originated in 2006, making 2019 the 14th season of the show. So I’m a year behind that way. This is what you get when you’re “old.” CRS syndrome. Oh well.
Thank you to KRFC (Fort Colllins), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KHEN (Salida), KZYR (Vail), and KJAC (Greeley) for airing the Colorado Playlist. Because of them, the show is heard on 24FM frequencies around the state, 52 hours a week. There’s a “letter of intent” for another mountain town station to pick up the show before April.
Below you’ll find the playlist for The Best of 2018. Twenty-five titles made the cut, counting the overall TOP 10 and the TOP 10 Fan/Listener Poll selections and TOP 5 Fan/Listener Videos of 2018 selections. It was an amazing year. Follow the links to see this year’s rankings and to listen to the LP/EP.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
Anthony Ruptak ends 2018 with one of the best new albums, and best new videos of the New Year. I’m looking forward to playing more of this wonderful album in the coming weeks and months.
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
Don’t forget to let me know if there’s something I should be playing on the show. I scour Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud and Bandcamp to find you the freshest new music from around the state – hope you’ll help out by voting to KEEP or DELETE the new music shares in the MMMM each week.
