CP S14 EP19 2020

Monday May 18, 2020 – WHEW … I can’t get my head around a summer with no live music events.  Every day brings more announcements of cancellations and venue closures from around the state.  Summer is a time when most bands get to play to new audiences, and new audiences get to experience new bands and old favorites.

Typically, recorded music is instrumental in getting people excited to see their favorite acts perform live at summer municipal events.  Performance revenue along with merch sales provides most of the money a band uses to record new music. Which leads me to wonder how much new music will be recorded this year.

The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce announced the cancellation of Jazz Festival, Solshine, Winter Park Uncorked, High Note Thursdays, Fitness in the Park, the Run for Independence, the 4th of July celebration, the Switchback concert and Tequila and Tacos.

The City of Dacono announced the cancellation of the 13th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival for 2020.

Last week I reported on the closing of Live at Jacks in downtown Denver.  On Friday May 15, 3 Kings Tavern on South Broadway in Denver announced it was closing permanently, unable to pay the rent after a solid 14 year run.  Announcing the closure on Instagram, the owners posted “The spirit of Kings will never die.”

COLORADO’S TOP 40 – RIGHT NOW

Friday May 15, 2020 – WOW.  I can’t recall the last time I pulled a statewide radio airplay chart of Colorado titles, played at Colorado non-comm stations.  I know it’s been at least five or six years – and maybe longer.

Normally, I track Roots Music Report.  Only a couple of Colorado stations report to RMR, along with several US, European and Internet stations.  RMR also doesn’t filter for current year releases.  A look at their weekly spins chart shows titles that are a few years old. So, when we look at their spins, we’re getting a more global look at what CO releases are getting played.

There are over 20 non-commercial public/community & college radio stations in our state.  Twelve of those stations use playlist generator Spinitron.  They include KAFM (Grand Junction), KBUT (Crested Butte), KCSU (Fort Collins), KDNK (Carbondale), KDUR (Durango), KFFR (Winter Park), KMSA (Grand Junction), KOTO (Telluride), KRFC (Fort Collins), KRZA (Alamosa-Taos), KSJD (Mancos) and KVNF (Paonia).

    • Airplay charted April 13-May 14 2020.
    • All releases May 2019-April 2020.

CP S14 EP16 2020

Monday April 27, 2020 – Some of you will will be telling your yet to be born children and grandchildren about how a virus shut down live in person public music shows and events in most parts of the world in the year 2020. The most recent major events to postpone until 2021 = Greeley Blues Jam and Greeley Stampede.

In the absence of the mass gatherings at festivals and concerts, and as a result of inadequate technology, 2020 will be most remembered for personal Facebook Live “festivals” and concerts with multi-act lineups; each act streaming from their respective “stay-at-home” space.   

NoCO Live from Home Show is based out of Fort Collins, mostly. Former Edison band leader Sarah Slaton is the gale force energy behind this weekly event, now heading into episode 7.   Sponsored by Scene Magazine, School of Rock (Fort Collins) and O’Dells Brewing, the show has so far featured Cary Morin, Liz Barnez, Clay Rose (Gasoline Lollipops), and Brian Johanson (Sugar Britches) to name just a few.  Lineups are announced on Tuesdays.  Shows are Saturdays 12pm-8pm.

TOP OF THE CHARTS:  Reverend Freakchild‘s new album The Bodhisattva Blues slipped into the #1 slot replacing what I was sure would be the sole #1 album of 2020,  And It’s Still Alright by Nathaniel RateliffMark Oblinger‘s High Water Line runs up the chart from 46-12.  Gabrielle Louise debuts at 17 with her latest, The Unending Alteration of the Human Heart.

The Colorado Playlist is fully dependent on financial support from its sponsors as well as donations from listeners.   A huge thank you to Denver DrumZ.  Located on Colfax Ave, owner JB Running Bear Maroncelli is currently offering live streaming lessons for students of all ages and experience level.

CP S14 EP02 2020

In last week’s post, I changed the way we do the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  I changed from KEEP / DELETE to you rating each entry 1-5, with 5 being “best.”

My hope is that you listen to each entry and if you’re in a band and you’re directing your fans here, they too will listen to and rate the new music.  What tends to happen is fans “vote” for their band, but don’t bother to check out the other entries. Hmmmm. Here’s hoping for better outcomes.

The lineup for the Greeley Blues Jam, the weekend of June 12-13, was announced this past Friday night.  Along with the national acts, Colorado bands include Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene, the Movers & Shakers, Erica Brown & the Cast Iron Queens, and the Grace Kuch Band.

Two new acts …sorta … showcased at the party Friday night.  The Sean Hagemeister Trio featuring Johnny Burroughs on guitar (slide and lead), bass and vocals and Mary Claxton on drums. Also appearing, the debut of Nick of Time, a Bonnie Raitt tribute.

In more personal news, my bandmates in GOATZ! got together for my birthday party Saturday night.  Expect us on stage soon.  Hopefully by March.

Happy New Year.  Back in the office, and ready to grind.  I hope you had a super fantabulous holiday season.

I made a change to how we do the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  Instead of voting to KEEP or DELETE the song from the CP library, I’m asking you to RATE THE MUSIC 1 (worst) to 5 (best).

Congratulations to the winners in the FoCOMA (Fort Collins Musicians Association) 2019 Peer Awards, held Sunday Jan 12 2020 at Washington’s Fort Collins (a CP supporter).

Along with all the other winners, the Fort Collins based Americana band Whippoorwill took home Album of the Year, Video of the Year, Performance of the Year and Americana/folk Band of the Year.  Whippoorwill’s Alysia Kraft took home Front-Person of the Year honors .. both for her efforts in Whippoorwill and in Pattie Fiasco. 

Among the evening’s highlights was a live appearance by the Beeves, one of the hottest up and coming rock bands in the region today. It’s pretty easy to see why they are, based on their brief two song set.

The Subdudes latest, Lickskillet, breaks the TOP 5 most reported Colorado titles in Roots Music Report this week (see below)


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

It’s pretty rare that I lead off with a video for a song I haven’t been able to play on the show yet, but the new single from Nathaniel Rateliff came out before it arrived in my in-box.

If you’re expecting a new roots R&B record, you’ll be sad.  If you were hoping for new direction, you’ll be disappointed.  This is a throwback record in Nathaniel’s diverse catalog of songs, and styles.  Before there was Nathaniel Rateliff the rhythm and blues artist, there was Nathaniel the folk artist.  Tossed in for good measure was Nathaniel the alternative rock artist (Born In the Flood) and indie folk-rock artist (the Wheel).

This won’t be an easy record to listen to. Nathaniel has suffered a divorce and the death of his friend and songwriting collaborator Richard Swift. We may love the Night Sweats swagger and swing, but Nathaniel has always been best when he has stripped away the layers and noise, and gotten quieter.

The Missouri born Denver transplant is destined for a Grammy Award nomination someday, and the kind of long career enjoyed by songwriters like John Prine (who he’s rumored to be doing an album with). Songs like this only add to the pedigree.

CP BEST OF DECADE – The Bottom Five

I’ve been playing Colorado music on Colorado radio since 1978, but our history of award winning (and award worthy) popular music goes back much further.  Over the past ten years, Colorado has experienced one of the most explosive eras in the history of Colorado music …if not THE MOST explosive era.

This past decade has  arguably produced the most and the biggest hit-makers and award winners in Colorado music history, along with some of the most memorable music of the past fifty plus years.

I picked 30 titles I thought best represented the Colorado Playlist over the past ten years, 2010-2019.  I asked you to order them from 1-30.  I was somewhat surprised at the ones you did NOT vote for.  Maybe it was the songs I selected from their various releases… hmmm.


At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


The Bottom Five (25-30)

  • Chuck Pyle – Love Will Find A Way
  • Churchill – Change
  • Esme Patterson – No River
  • Gerald Albright – Slam Dunk
  • Otis Taylor – Red Meat

Chuck Pyle, aka the “Zen Cowboy,” passed away at age 70 in 2015 at his home near Palmer Lake.  Over his 40 year Colorado music career he released 13 albums, including “The Spaces In Between” in 2010, his only studio release of the decade.

Churchill was a national breakout band from Denver, that broke up in 2013 with two arena shows and a Jay Leno appearance left on the table, after touring successfully with Pink and signing with major label A&M/Octone.

Esme Patterson was a member of the Denver based indie folk-rock band Paper Bird that she parted with in 2014.  She released three records from 2012-2016.

All Princes, I (2012)
Woman to Woman (2015)
We Were Wild (2016)

Gerald Albright was nominated for a Grammy for “Slam Dunk;” one of eight total Grammy nominations, and the fourth consecutive between 2010-2014. A Colorado based musician since 2006, he released six albums during the decade 2010-2019

Pushing the Envelope (2010)
24/7 with Norman Brown (2012)
Summer Horns with Dave Koz, Mindi Abair, Richard Elliot (2013)
Slam Dunk (2014)
G (2016)
30 (2018)

Otis Taylor is the most awarded musician in Colorado music history and was inducted into the 2020 Colorado Music Hall of Fame class on December 3, 2019. Otis released five albums over the past decade –

Clovis People Vol 3 (2010)
Contraband (2012)
My World Is Gone (2013)
Hey Joe Opus (2015)
Fantasizing About Being Black (2017)


Maybe I just picked the wrong songs to represent this incredible body of award winning and popular music.  Pick any of these five artists and bands to discover some of the best of Colorado music 2010-2019.  And share with your friends, please.

Happy New Year 2020

CP S13 EP49 2019

MONDAY DEC 16, 2019 

Thanks for all the FAN FAVORITE votes for LP, Single, and Video of the year.  Those polls are now closed.  The BEST OF 2019 show will air DEC 28-JAN 03 2020.

Now it’s time to direct your attention to the CP BEST OF THE DECADE 2010 – 2019.  This poll will close on December 28. The Best of the Decade show will air Jan 4-10 2020.

I got asked the other day why I added the new Mary Chapin Carpenter single, “Our Man Walter Cronkite” to this week’s playlist.  Two reasons:  One, it was produced here in Colorado by Jamie Mefford (Gregory Alan Isakov, Nathaniel Rateliff) at Colorado Sound recording studios in Denver.  Two, it’s been reported that she purchased a home in Boulder.  See VIDEO PICK of the Week below.

Equally, Philip Bailey‘s latest also got added, because he’s a Denver native who is one of the country’s top award winning songwriters, and vocalists.  Congratulations to Philip and his bandmates in Earth Wind & Fire for their Kennedy Center Honors.  A somewhat and relatively minor award would be induction into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, which I can almost certainly see happening once the new Hall is built and open.
