Monday May 10, 2021 – Once again, I’m writing early… I’m off visiting Westcliff and Salida this week. This week’s visits include KLZR Westcliffe where you can hear the show Sundays from 2-4PM and KHEN Salida, which airs the show Saturdays from 5-7PM.
Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by Andy Sydow. Every week or so I feature a 7 to 8 minute segment featuring a conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry personalities. This week’s guest is Mark Oblinger.
TOP FIVE WK END MAY 08 2021
WEST SIDE JOE & THE MEN OF SOUL lead a wholesale change in this week’s TOP FIVE spins, among the thirteen stations surveyed from May 2 through May 8. Their single “Vacate My Heart” is popular too on Spotify with over 11,000 spins. The link is to their Bandcamp page.
The new singles from Cole Scheifele (pronounced “shife-lee”) are at #2 thanks to being featured this month on Indie 102.3. I would imagine other Colorado radio DJs liking Cole, who instantly falls in alongside Gregory Alan Isakov and the introspective sensitive side of Nathaniel Rateliff. His link goes to his artist YouTube page instead of the album, which isn’t due out until July.
- WEST SIDE JOE & THE MEN OF SOUL – Keep On Climbin’ LP (Apr-21)
- COLE SCHEIFELE – The Hideaways LP (due out Jul-21)
- LEFTOVER SALMON – Brand New Good Old Days LP (Mar-21)
- FLOBOTS – Roshni SINGLE (Apr-21)
- DISCOMFORT CREATURE – Discomfort Creature LP (Apr-21)
TOP 5 and TOP 30 charts are pulled from published spins at 13 Colorado non-profit community/public and college radio stations. 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.
