CP S16 EP22 2022

June 27, 2022 – On the road again! It’s summertime in Colorado, which means visiting as many places as we can to do some sightseeing, fishing, photography and seeing friends. This week we’ll be in Alamosa listening to KRZA. Hopefully we’ll have some pictures to share with you next week.

WOW … a seismic shift in this week’s TOP 5! The Lumineers got bounced out completely (in fact, fell out of the TOP 10).

A reminder .. the Colorado 2022 playlist on Spotify is limited to 100 titles from 100 artists/bands and can change often – sometimes a few times a day. Make sure to follow and visit frequently.

CP S16 EP21 2022

June 20, 2022 – To the dads and grandpas and men who raised or co-raised a child – Happy Father’s Day. Yeah, it’s Sunday and I’m at the desk working as usual.

A very good friend of mine got married this past week. Congratulations to Andy & Allie Sydow. Andy has a new album coming out soon produced by Anders Osborne.

Speaking of new releases, I bumped into longtime Colorado blues artist, songwriter and producer Nic Clark at the wedding party (he actually officiated). He let me know he’s got a new album coming out this year also.

CP S16 EP16 2022

MAY 09, 2022 – Somewhere along the time line over the past two weeks I lost a day. I did manage to see a show Friday night (May 06) and even write about it. The next day (Saturday) while listening to the new LIVE album from Kaitlyn Williams, I wrote about that. That’s more writing than I normally get around to on a weekend.

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and the Lumineers swapped places this week (big surprise – LOL). Nic Clark enters this week’s TOP 5. Nic’s debut hits the charts about a year after he moved out of Colorado, but the locally homegrown blues harp player and producer got plenty of spins from 88.9 KRFC Fort Collins the past couple of weeks to earn the slot.

Earth, Wind & Fire sax player Andrew Woolfolk passed away April 24. Lead singer and fellow Denver East HS grad Philip Bailey celebrated a birthday May 07. I paid tribute in this week’s show.
