Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve

July 4, 2022 – Happy JULY 4th! We rolled in yesterday, just in time for me to compile this past week’s TOP 5 Colorado music spins. I’ll post up the June TOP 30 tomorrow.

Well, here I thought the Lumineers would drop off the TOP 5 for the week – but noooooo … they reappeared. Wouldn’t be surprised if they hang around another month or two. In the meantime, Alysia Kraft takes #1 away from Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats .. and Ryan Chrys & the Roughcuts move up to #3.

Don’t forget – your feedback in the MMMM below goes a long way to keeping songs in my rotation, and in what gets nominated for BEST of 2022 .. so please vote.

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.

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.
