May 04, 2021 – Hope you don’t mind me being a few days late with this. I have been taking some time to visit some of the wonderful cities and towns around our state, including Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Durango and Alamosa, with Westcliff still to come next week.

We have an abundance of local non-commercial not-for-profit radio stations around the state, nearly all of which at one time or another in any given week air Colorado-based music; many along with the Colorado Playlist.

I track thirteen of the state’s twenty plus public, community and college radio stations, eleven via Spinitron. Tracking is not an exact science. Not every dj at every station publishes a playlist, and not every station utilizes the automatic playlist generator provided by Spinitron.

Of the over 200 titles dating back to April 2020 that I currently track, eighty titles received at least one verifiable spin in April.

To find out how you can get your music in the hands of djs at stations around the state, email

Spinitron Designed to benefit non-commercial public and college radio stations. Record promoters and artists are among those most likely to benefit from the detailed search function. Currently 11 Colorado radio stations utilize Spinitron.
