CP S17 EP06 2023

February 6, 2023 – I was hoping for either Yonder Mountain String Band or the Infamous Stringdusters to bring a Grammy home to Colorado, but no such luck this year.

Every once in a while it happens. I get sent a record WEEKS before it goes live on your favorite streaming source. In this week’s show there were pre-release debuts from Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck and one from the solo debut from Trent Nelson (Strange Americans).

As I sat here yesterday tabulating this week’s spins I was very pleasantly surprised to see the new album Four from Colorado Music Hall of Fame guitarist Bill Frisell debut at #3.


Spin data pulled from the Colorado Playlist105.5 The Colorado SoundIndie 102.388.9 KRFC  and ten other stations that use playlist generator Spinitron, offering search functions for artists and agents to track airplay.
