CP S14 EP34 2020

Monday AUG 31 2020The Colorado Playlist is and has always been about one thing – it is expressly and explicitly Colorado from the 60’s to today; from the biggest hitmakers and award winners in Colorado music history to some of the freshest new music emerging from the Centennial state.

The weekly show is not the only place you can hear the great music that makes up our scene in Colorado. You can dial up a 50+ year retrospective at the Colorado Playlist on Spotify.  You’ll find a few playlists there – a Colorado Playlist ALL TIME from the 60s to Today; CP2020 = songs from the current release year; CP2019, CP Best of the Decade 2010-2019 and CP Caribou Ranch Collection.  PLS be sure to follow.

You can also find every playlist I’ve ever made on my YouTube channel, dating back to 2012.  PLS be sure to subscribe.

New music this week in the MMMM = Jonny Barber, White Rose Motor Oil, Lucy Daydream and Jon Snodgrass.  Esme Patterson and Jon Snodgrass show up in this week’s TOP 5 while Nathaniel Rateliff reclaims the #1 spot at RootsMusicReport.com
