MONDAY JUNE 01 2020 – Despite COVID and despite protests and riots this weekend, music still played an incredible role in the lives of those who earn their living in music. On Saturday night, the Colorado Music Relief Fund raised over $500,000 to support those in our industry affected by our industry being shut down.
The event included Colorado based acts Austin Young, Gabrielle Louise, Inaiah Lujan, Isaac Slade (The Fray), Nathaniel Rateliff, Nick and Helen Forster (E-Town), The Lumineers, The Reminders, The Still Tide, The String Cheese Incident, Todd Park Mohr (Big Head Todd & the Monsters) and Wildermiss along with a great cast of national acts who consider Colorado special in their lives and careers.
Over 135,000 people live streamed the event on Youtube. If you missed it, you can watch now.
In lieu of a weekly spins chart this week, I will be publishing the MAY 2020 CO TOP 40 TITLES tomorrow, June 2 – which will also include separate TOP 5 spins from 105.5 The Colorado Sound and Indie 102.3. That said….
ROOTS MUSIC REPORT WK ENDING MAY 30 2020 finds Reverend Freakchild reclaiming the #1 spot over Nathaniel Rateliff with the rest of the top five remaining as it was was last with — #3=Mojomama, #4=The Lumineers and #5=Lee Sims.
At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music. Bohemian Foundation’s NoCo Music Relief Fund provides assistance for individuals in the Northern Colorado Music Community who are severely financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic

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.
