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 S15:EP34 2021

MONDAY Aug 23 2021 – I put the mask back on. It’s a reminder that COVID is not over with us. #COMUSIC – support.

A new project hit the stage this weekend in Fort Collins – currently known only as “MA,” the band is made up of John Magnie & Steve Amadee from the Subdudes and Del Shamen + Eric Thorin (bass) and Lionel Young (vocals, violin and guitar).

In the meantime, the Colorado supergroup Del Shamen that features John, Steve and Eric along with Nick Forster (E-Town) and Jock Bartley (Firefall) appears to have played its final show as part of the Bohemian Light Livestream that took place last weekend.

Two of the most esteemed elder statesmen of our music scene are Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller, whose latest What We Did! is currently trending to be in the TOP 10 for 2021. They hit #1 again this week here and at Roots Music Report TOP 50 Colorado.

Other trending titles include the debut of the High Hawks, along with the latest from Leftover Salmon and A.J. Fullerton

CP S15:EP33 2021

MONDAY Aug 16 2021 – This past weekend I had the honor and privilege to be one of the hosts of Bohemian Light Livestream along with my friend and colleague Margot Chobanian from 105.5 The Colorado Sound. Unfortunately, due to time and space constraints only thirteen of the originally scheduled forty-nine acts were included in the showcase.

Emerging folk acts Companion, fronted by twin sisters Joanna (Jo) and Sophia Babb, as well as Miranda Fling stood out among the newcomers, while KILTRO and Del Shamen (featuring members of the Subdudes, Firefall and E-Town) provided two of the exceptional full band performances of the weekend.

AEG PRESENTS has announced that as of OCT 1, all of their venues will require us to show proof of vaccination to attend shows. Those venues include the Mission Ballroom and Fiddler’s Green along with the smaller venues they manage in the region. Information at AEGPresents.com/health-policy.

Also over the weekend, Rolling Stone posted that “Live Nation will require all artists, crew and attendees show proof of full vaccination or a negative test at their venues and upcoming festivals starting October 4th.”

Veteran Denver talent buyer, sound engineer, musician and record label producer/owner Randall Frazier who has worked at Ophelia’s and the Walnut Room is now the new senior talent buyer and production manager for the Levitt Pavilion.
