CP S13 EP25 2019

MONDAY JUNE 24, 2019 – Rumors swirled over the weekend concerning former Yonder Mountain String Band founding member Jeff Austin.  Despite numerous social media posts alluding to a possible suicide, official reports emerged that he suffered a undisclosed medical emergency and was is Seattle with family being attended to.  What little information is available, and crowdfunding has been set up at Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

In this week’s show I highlighted some of the best of 2013 in  HOUR 1 and some of the best of 2014 in HOUR 2.  Over the next many weeks I will continue to highlight some of the best of each year as we approach the BEST OF THE DECADE.  With that, I’ve put up two polls already for Best of 2010 and 2011, so you can vote for your favorites from those years.

MMMM this week = Gun Street Ghost, Heavy Diamond Ring, Bobby Messano, Swerve, The Threadbarons, and Brian Bourgault – KEEP or DELETE?

Did you miss this week’s or LAST week’s show?  You can now stream them on demand! 105.5 The Colorado Sound archives two weeks worth that you can stream at your leisure.  They typically update their archives every Monday afternoon.  You can also stream the show in real time wherever the show is aired around the state.  See the stations and times page for that info.

105.5 The Colorado Sound & the Colorado Playlist Present:
Brent Cowles – Bluebird Theater, Denver – Oct 12


At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


Not to be confused with the now seemingly defunct Denver hard rock and country cover band called Swerve, this Greeley based original project with the same name, featuring former UNC music grads, is poised to be the Best Emerging New Band of 2019.
