CP S14 EP24 2020

It’s not often I introduce a new feature on the.  In fact I can’t recall the last time.  I’ve wanted to showcase albums from Caribou Ranch for some time now.  Caribou Ranch stands out as one of the crown jewels of the Colorado music scene throughout the seventies and eighties – and many of the records recorded there are considered true classics.  I hope you enjoy the segment called Classics From the Caribou Ranch Collection.

The week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) has only two songs for you to rate.  I was very lucky to secure two radio only premiers from Boulder’s Trevor Hall and Fort Collin’s Johnny & the Mongrels, both from upcoming releases.

We got to head up into the Poudre Canyon this weekend to visit my friend Dani Grant and her team at the Mishawaka.  You need to call ahead for a table.  Yes, there is live music on the Poudre on this summer.

Please help Rocky Mountain Music Relief feed musicians.  Donations of $15 or more receive a #COmusic COVID mask as a thank you. Proceeds will benefit food needy musicians and their families. Please make sure to provide your address so we can mail your mask.

I am happy to support  FOCOMA (Fort Collins Musician Association)  Drive and Jive – a weekly series showcasing some of Northern Colorado’s popular acts – including upcoming shows from The Beeves with  Slow Caves, and Cary Morin with Del Shamen featuring John Magnie and Steve Amadee from the Subdudes along with Nick Forster (E-Town) and Jock Bartley (Firefall).

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 🙂

I gotta say – the only reason you don’t hear something like this on the regularly aired program is the FCC ban on f-bombs and other inappropriate language.  Otherwise… this shit kills, and this man brings it old skool.
