CP S15 EP04 2021

Jan 25 2021 – It blows my mind that we’re this close to the end of January already.  I wasn’t able to generate a TOP 5 spins chart for last week, so this week’s TOP 5 is basically two weeks worth of spins.  Cary Morin continues to top the chart, with Bud Bronson & the Good Timers moving up to the #2 spot this week.

As you may know, I founded Rocky Mountain Music Relief to help out in times just like now. I know how hard things are.  Mortgage, utilities, transportation and food are just a few of the things that need attending to.  If you truly are in need, please reach out.  www.rockymountainmusicrelief.org

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

COLORADO TOP 30 DEC 2020

JAN 03 2021 – Well, #1 is #1 – right?  And Nathaniel Rateliff AGAIN holds onto the #1 most spins for DECEMBER 2020.  Sarah Slaton and Dafna swapped the #2 position with Dafna’s debut dropping to #16 and Sarah Slaton’s latest jumping up from #17 in NOV, due largely to being a featured artist for DEC on Indie 102.3 and getting added to regular rotation on 105.5 the Colorado Sound.

New artists to watch for include Blakk Mantra, whose debut got added and made it to HOT rotation at 105.5 The Colorado Sound for December and former Chimney Choir co-founder Kris Drickey who struck out on her own with State Change (not avail on YouTube)
