Colorado TOP 30 JULY 2021

August 1, 2021 -I track thirteen of the state’s twenty plus public, community and college radio stations; eleven thanks to 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.

I tracked nearly two hundred titles in July; eighty-seven received at least one spin on one station in Colorado. All titles are current since July 2020.

Designed to benefit non-commercial public and college radio stations and featuring advanced search functions for artists and agents.

It’s almost needless to say that we were EXTREMELY satisfied with our care and eyewear. They have two locations – in Cherry Creek Mall and at the Orchard Center in Westminster.

CP S15:EP29 2021

MONDAY JULY 19 – I needed to wait until this morning for the official announcement for Bohemian Light Music Festival (formerly Bohemian Nights at New West Fest), the first of the three major Colorado-centric music events held over the summer.

This year’s event will be a smaller version of previous festivals, held over two days – Aug 14/15 – instead of three. Of course, it also means fewer acts than in past years: I count 45, down from what is normally about 70-75. Bohemian put together their own ’21 Bohemian Light Music Festival playlist.

Last week, the UMS announced its own scaled down lineup for Aug 27-29. I lost count of Colorado acts when I got over 95, a pretty hefty representation. Check out seventy-five of my favorites for the UMS on Spotify.

Adiel Mitchell, Heavy Diamond Ring, Kiltro, Los Mocochetes, The Milk Blossoms, The Still Tide, The Velveteers and Wildermiss are among the acts performing at both Bohemian Light and the UMS.

The annual Westword Music Showcase has moved to two days, Sept 17-18. Westword has not yet announced its Colorado lineup.

I’ll be featuring acts appearing at these events over the next several weeks.
