Monday March 23, 2020 – If there’s one thing you cannot get a musician to do it’s put down their instruments. If there is no formal stage to perform on, we will build one. And we figure if we build it, they will come (to steal an oft used phrase from a famous movie).
Well, that’s exactly what’s been happening. Live streaming concerts – solo living room concerts to full stage full band productions have been streamed almost constantly the past several days. With that in mind: I’m producing a supplemental hr of the show highlighting bands that will be live streaming March 30-April 4.
A couple of years back I founded Rocky Mountain Music Relief Inc – a Colorado 501C3 non-profit with a mission to provide financial and in-kind support to those individuals, groups and organizations within the music industry that have been impacted physically, financially and/or emotionally due to the occurrence of natural disasters or unforeseen tragedies within their communities. We are currently teaming up with other organizations like ours to help out as best we can.
We appreciate all the donations we’ve received. The board of directors is working on ways to share those donations with our community.
The Colorado Playlist is fully dependent on financial support from my sponsors. What I have to offer is a way to reach thousands of people every week around the state, via messaging on the Colorado Playlist. I’d be very happy to discuss your messaging needs. Email me at email@example.com
The NOCO HEMP EXPO scheduled for March 27-28 has been rescheduled for August 6-8. Thanks to them for their financial support. I’m looking forward to emceeing their Northern Colorado “super-star” show, alongside Denver rock radio legend Uncle Nasty. See you there in August.
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
Humor, they say, is a terrific stress reliever – so much so it seems, that I’ve only watched rom-coms and comedy movies and tv shows lately. This lyric video is just what the doctor ordered – so to speak.
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING (MMMM)
You make a big difference in what gets played on the show. Every week I share some or all of the new music played on the show with you, here in the MMMM. Your rating gets factored into my decision in what to maintain in the show’s “for airplay” library.
A REMINDER: Please listen to ALL of the songs and rate them. Thanks 🙂
