Monday FEB 27, 2023 – This week’s picture is a view of Grand Junction, Colorado from the Colorado National Monument, which is where I’m sitting this morning … looking up at the red rocks of the monument.
Happy 7th Birthday 105.5 The Colorado Sound. Seven years ago I entered what is now the final stage in my six decade long career in music and radio in Northern Colorado (1978-2023). On February 28, 2016, my show went from being called the Colorado Sound (2006-2016) to being renamed Chris K’s Colorado Playlist, when I became part of the on-air staff at KJAC FM (Greeley) henceforth known as 105.5 The Colorado Sound.
I have had the tremendous pleasure of working with some of the best in Northern Colorado radio history – none more than my friends and colleagues over the past seven years – Benji (now a program director in Dallas, TX), Margot (mid-days, program director), Stacy (afternoons, music director), Ron (evenings, promotion director), Ben (mornings), Dawn (weekends) and Kurt (website and social media director).
Thank you all for being a part of the success. It’s been the ride of my life.
Here’s what’s happening in #COMUSIC for the week! No weekly TOP 5 sorry to say. I’ll post up the monthly TOP 30 in a few days. In the meantime, pls let us know what you think of this week’s new music shares.
