2020 has been a truly magnificent year for Colorado music and not just for the music, but for the incredible outpouring of support.
Musicians in our scene DO NOT need to worry about food insecurity on top of other issues they may be facing. Organizations like DAZZLE and Rocky Mountain Music Relief offer help. Dazzle Bread & Jam Pop-Up Pantry for Musicians is open every Sunday from 12pm-6pm. Musicians and music industry personnel can apply for small grants from RMMR.
The Colorado Playlist is provided to member stations at no cost. Your support is deeply appreciated. Your support will help to keep the program on the air as we enter its 15th season in 2021.
Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by Andy Sydow. Every week or so, I feature a segment featuring a conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry persons..
