CP S14 EP22 2020

MONDAY JUNE 08 2020 –I received word over the weekend from KDNK (Carbondale) that the show now airs Saturday and Sunday mornings at 5AM.  See updated stations and times.

News is starting to come in about live in person music around the region.   Conditions vary, but we are beginning to see some glimmers and pictures and testimony – expressing considerable pleasure and bands on stages.

FOCOMA (Fort Collins Musician Association) and ODell Brewing have teamed up with the Holiday Twin Drive-In Fort Collins for Drive and Jive – a weekly Tuesday night series showcasing some of Northern Colorado’s popular acts – including Bonnie & the Cyldes, Sugar Britches, The Beeves, Slow Caves, Cary Morin and Del Shamen featuring John Magnie and Steve Amadee from the Subdudes along with Nick Forster (E-Town) and Jock Bartley (Firefall).

Colorado Playlist sponsor, The Mishawaka, has reopened for food, music and movies – but in an extremely scaled down fashion.  Currently, the “Mish” can only sit 96 across their property at any one time.  Local duos, trios and the occasional band will appear on the outdoor stage.  Reservations only.  Please tip the musicians.

While some local restaurants are opening and offering live music in some form, bars, festivals and major events continue to either cancel or postpone.  Among the latest to cancel is the Boulder County FairChautauqua Boulder canceled the rest of their season as well.

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music. Bohemian Foundation’s NoCo Music Relief Fund provides assistance for individuals in the Northern Colorado Music Community who are severely financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic

MONDAY Oct. 21 2019The Colorado Playlist on 105.5 The Colorado Sound is changing times!  After reviewing three years worth of ratings data, it has been decided to move the Colorado Playlist to Saturday mornings, 6AM-8AM.  Seems I have more available listeners on Saturday mornings than on Sundays!  I will continue to host Saturday mornings, 8AM-12PM.  So now you’ll get two solid hours of Colorado music, and then me hosting four hours of music discovery – including Colorado music – every Saturday morning.  Set that alarm clock!!

The Colorado Music Hall of Fame presented by Comfort Dental has announced the 2019 induction celebration for Tommy Bolin, Zephyr, Otis Taylor, Freddi Henchi Band and Wendy Kale.  Tue, Dec 3 at Mission Ballroom.

CP S12 EP31 2018

I love summers.  Anyone who is in the music industry .. and I suspect many many thousands who are not employed in the music industry … enjoys all the musical activity that takes place on stages large and small … from downtown – small town – events with strictly “local” bands to the biggest stages with the biggest names in the county.  And, we are in the thick of it.

Bohemian Nights at New West Fest is logged for 2018. As is usual for this annual event that is now moving towards 15 years old, many tens of thousands showed up to enjoy some 80 bands … over 99% of which were from Colorado.  It was a sunny hot weekend, and yes, after two years of weather miscues, the Subdudes finally managed to entertain us with a full Sunday start set.

I finished the Wellington Main Street Summer Concert Series in a thunder and hail storm this weekend.  And my band, GOATZ!, played in the rain for the 8th annual Fort Collins Peach Festival.

There are still many many more events to attend and to be a part of by the time I actually get to vacation in mid-September.

Congratulations to Ryan Chrys (Ryan Chrys and the Roughcuts) who was voted “Entertainer of the year” by the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame.  He was also nominated “Outlaw Group, 2018” by the Ameripolitan Music Awards

CO Playlist – S12 EP05 2018

Three big stories came out this past week.  Elephant Revival announced an “indefinite hiatus,” Chris Daniels made a public announcement that he’s the new executive director of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame and KRFC executive James Lopez resigned.

Elephant Revival posted that “The band has been dealing with some family matters that have led us to reassess and realize that, while we’ve all been putting so much energy into Elephant Revival, we need some time to reconnect with our loved ones and focus on personal growth.”

The entire statement from the band is posted on their FB page.

Chris Daniels was inducted into the CMHOF in 2013, and also served as executive director for Swallow Hill music before becoming a professor in the music industry studies program at UC Denver.  He replaces former Denver Post music reporter and critic, and author of Colorado’s Rock Chronicles G. Brown.  No reason has been given yet for the change in leadership at the CMHOF.  

KRFC Fort Collins will be looking for a new executive director.  James Lopez announced he’s stepping down after only six months on the job.  KRFC Board Chair Kate Hawthorne-Jeracki is noted as saying that the board will be looking for someone who can get the station “to the next level with funding and things like that.”

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP43

ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF mobilizes the Colorado music and media communities to raise funds to assist musicians throughout the U.S. affected by natural disasters.

NEWS NOTES & THOUGHTS

Often when we talk about music in our area we’re talking about bands that do “original” music.  This weekend my girlfriend and I went to the theater – as in Denver’s Bug Theater – to see Disaster, a spoof on 70’s disaster flicks like Poseidon Adventure.  I grew up in little theater, and despite not having gone to see a play in nearly 20 years I fell in love all over again.

Our music AND radio communities in Colorado suffered a loss over the weekend.  Bill Barwick was one of the several superb instructors at the Ron Baile School of Broadcast in Denver in the late 70s.  He was also one of the top cowboy musicians in our scene and a regular at the Buckhorn Saloon, and “the Voice of the Western Channel.”  Bill passed away while attending the Western Music Association convention in Albuquerque, NM on November 10.  RIP old friend.  And thank you for helping me realize my dream of a career in broadcasting, and music.



VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

To say I’m in love with the new Big Head Todd & the Monsters album New World Arisin’ is just a shade of an understatement.  After following and playing their music on the air since about 1988 I have to say it’s their best yet – and certainly their most rockin.
