CO TOP 40 MAY 2020

It’s been several years since I tracked and posted a monthly TOP 40 chart for Colorado music, played on Colorado radio stations.  Thanks to my friends at Spinitron for allowing me access to their playlist generator database for a few months (no, it’s not permanent access – yet).

Spinitron’s playlist generator was developed to benefit non-commercial public and educational terrestrial radio stations in the US that simultaneously stream online and broadcast over airwaves. Record promoters are among those most likely to benefit from Spinitron’s detailed advance search function.

There are over 20 FM and LPFM (low power FM) non-commercial public/community and college stations in Colorado.  I’m able to track spins at 12 of those stations that have some kind of searchable online database or use Spinitron.

The two stations I most frequently get asked about are 105.5 The Colorado Sound, where I’m a part of the on-air team, and Indie 102.3 (Denver/Fort Collins).  Both have searchable databases.  So I’ll lead off the TOP 40 for May 2020 with their respective TOP 5.
