Monday NOV 16 2020 – This past week I worked diligently to distill the incredible crop of music that was harvested this year from our region. I managed to distill it down to 50 song titles from over 200 LPs, EPs and single releases for you to vote on beginning next Monday, November 23. I also managed to build a list of 40 videos for you to vote on. Cya next Monday.
Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by Andy Sydow. Every week or so, I 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.
