Monday MARCH 14, 2022 – Sixty-nine Colorado current year releases (March 2021 to March 2022) got some airtime on at least fifteen (there are a handful I don’t track) Colorado community and college radio stations this past week. That’s sixty-nine out of the two hundred that are currently on my tracking sheet. So, is that good or bad?

As things go, it’s pretty good. One station, where I’m proud to call home on Saturday mornings the past six years – 105.5 The Colorado Sound – typically spins thirty to thirty-two current Colorado titles a week at least once; NOT including what I play on the Colorado Playlist on Saturday (6AM) and Sunday (6PM).

Next is 88.9 KRFC Fort Collins, where djs there picked twenty-three titles to share this past week. Indie 102.3 typically features up to a dozen Colorado artists each month. About twenty or so current year Colorado titles were aired this past week at other stations around the state – including this week’s featured station, KSJD.

The Colorado Playlist relies on donations. Please donate at the bottom of the page.

FEATURED STATION OF THE WEEK

KSJD is a community/public radio station based in Cortez, Colorado that serves the Four Corners region of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, including the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe and portions of the Navajo Nation.  The CP is aired Saturdays at 2PM

CP S16 EP02 2022

Monday JAN 10, 2022 – Happy Monday morning. Due to a computer glitch this past weekend, the Colorado Playlist did not air correctly at KJAC 105.5 The Colorado Sound. New programming software can have some bugs ya know? It did and will, however, air correctly at the other stations this week.

The MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) is a bit interesting this week. I showcased a couple of songs this week on the show that came out from late 2020 (2 Gentlemen) to early 2021 (Carolyn Shulman).

2 Gentlemen features Denver bassist Windall Armour who many may recall from his days in Opie Gone Bad. He and long time friend Kenny James (currently in Atlantic City) bring the funk hard on It’s All About the Views, a song that “…talks about where we are with social media and our fixation on collecting views as well as status in the social world.”

Carolyn Shulman was a pleasant find a couple of weeks ago. The Denver by way of Houston lawyer and singer-songwriter has earned considerable praise and folk radio airplay for her Americana country-folk, inspired by Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Patty Griffin.

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats not only held on to the #1 spot in the TOP 5 this week and at Roots Music Report.com, but appears to be increasing in the number of spins reported statewide. Remember, RMR.com also represents airplay of Colorado releases outside of Colorado – including internationally and on Internet radio stations that report.

I do expect to see the new album from Yonder Mountain String Band make a strong impression statewide, since debuting at #8 at RootsMusicReport.com. I do not expect to see it rise to TOP 5 status in my reporting due to lack of play on the top two stations spinning Colorado music in our state. The same is true for the new album by Colorado native Corey Harris, whose album The Insurrection Blues is currently #2 at Roots Music Report but doesn’t show up at the stations I survey weekly.

Sunset along Pueblo’s Riverwalk Summer 2021

Monday DEC 13, 2021 – We’re less than three weeks away from the end of 2021 and the Best Of the year show and year end charts. I guess it doesn’t take a brain scientist to figure out that Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats album The Future will be the number one album. They are, after all, the most popular band in recent memory. BUT – will Colorado Playlist listener and band fans pick them as #1?

This week’s TOP 5 finds Cortez, Colorado folk duo Maddy & Kev landing at #3 with Animal Electricity dropping into the 4th position and Claire Heywood lands back in the TOP 5.

MMMM this week features new music from the Jackson Cloud Odyssey, Corey Harris and Our Violet Room. The last time I caught Jackson Cloud live he was fronting a classic blues-rock band – but that was a few years ago now. His new album is full blown prog-rock/psychedelia than anything he’s known for live.

Corey Harris is a native Colorado musician who moved away after high school many decades ago. His new album is currently charting TOP 3 in the TOP 50 Colorado Album Chart at Roots Music Report.

Our Violet Room is a new project by Denver via Los Angeles singer-songwriter Matthew Birch. The new single also features Emma Cole from Wildermiss.
