Monday NOV 09 2020 – Monday morning coffee = the election is over. COVID isn’t. Winter is setting in; so are we. That means fewer shows and more time streaming.
I’ve seen an explosion of recordings (LP, EP and singles) since March. In fact, even thinking of what might be the “BEST OF” for 2020 is already feeling like an impossible task. Gonna need your help for reals this year. POLLS coming soon. MMMM = MelMo & the Middlemen, Monica Marie LaBonte , YepOk, New Family Dog. Your vote matters.
I added a new feature to the show this week = Middleclass Rockstar, hosted by Andy Sydow. Every week or so, I’ll feature a 7 to 8 min long excerpt of an hour plus long conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry persons.
DONATIONS WELCOMED and deeply appreciated. The Colorado Playlist is provided to member stations at no cost. Your support will help to keep the program on the air as we enter its 15th season in 2021.
