FEB 22 2021 – The TOP 5 this week flipped, with only one entry returning from the past two weeks – The Grand Alliance. It should not be a surprise, following last Saturday’s appearance on SNL, that Nathaniel Rateliff‘s latest single, Redemption is #1 this week and is likely to stay there for the next several weeks.
This week’s featured station is KDNK, one of the first stations to air the Colorado Playlist. KDNK was founded by volunteers in 1983 and now reaches over 100,000 people around the state, along with their international Internet listenership. Listen at:
- 88.1 in Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, and Rifle;
