Monday April 13, 2020 – If Easter in the traditional sense is about resurrection, I can only hope that our outdoor live music season is resurrected from all this isolation we’ve been experiencing. That said, it was announced this past week that the long running Telluride Bluegrass Festival has been cancelled for this June as has the Pagosa Folk & Bluegrass Festival, and the Dark Sky Festival scheduled for late June in Westcliffe.
FUNDING and SUPPORT
The Colorado Playlist is fully dependent on financial support from its sponsors as well as donations from listeners. Thank you for your contribution.
While we’re all experiencing a major loss of income and revenue, small businesses need a platform to inform listeners that you’re still open for business. In light of current economic concerns, I’d be very happy to discuss your messaging needs and how the Colorado Playlist can help. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rocky Mountain Music Relief Inc – a Colorado 501C3 non-profit with a mission to provide financial and in-kind resources and support to those individuals, groups and organizations within our Colorado music industry that have been impacted physically, financially and/or emotionally due to the occurrence of natural disasters or unforeseen tragedies within their communities.
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
Every once in a while an album comes along that simply says “best of the year.” Yes, it’s April. But Nathaniel Rateliff’s new solo album is destined to be the most popular album of the year by a Colorado artist for 2020. Here’s his latest video.
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 🙂
