MAY 01, 2023 – WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW! You blew the roof off this sucker! You set an ALL TIME thirteen year high for views and visits for APRIL, by a HUGE margin. Thank you. Much love.
Every Sunday I survey over a dozen community/public and college stations, which includes spins on the Colorado playlist.
The monthly survey period is from the first week ending with a Sunday, through the last week ending with a Sunday. Yearly spins are pulled and calculated from December through the next November.
The annual new release year begins in November, although there are some released in October that make the cut. I track all titles for a full calendar year from the official date of release.
Titles are linked to its respective YouTube page.
Spin data pulled from the Colorado Playlist, 105.5 The Colorado Sound, Indie 102.3, 88.9 KRFC and ten other stations that use playlist generator Spinitron, offering search functions for artists and agents to track airplay.
You can almost always expect a nationally known band to place high up on the charts.
*The Wood Brothers are not, specifically speaking, a locally based band. The Boulder raised Chris and Oliver Wood, aka *The Wood Brothers, are in the #COMUSIC conversation in much the same way as *Shovels and Rope, one-half of which is Denver raised Michael Trent. Chris, Oliver and Michael all grew up here, but moved after high school to pursue music full time elsewhere. Hence the * in front of their names.
I also include Colorado expats living elsewhere in my tracking, as long as they were born and/or raised here, or got their career started here or there is some other reason to include them. So the new *The Wood Brothers get counted in my tracking along with Leftover Salmon cofounder and Colorado Music Hall of Fame inductee, *Vince Herman, who now lives in Nashville. His solo debut, Enjoy the Ride, gets counted as part of #COMUSIC.
