The Colorado Playlist – Expressly and explicitly Colorado from the 60s to Today – From the biggest hits by the biggest hitmakers and award winners in Colorado music history to some some of the freshest new music emerging from the Centennial State.
APRIL 24 2022 – Yep, On the Road AGAIN! Good morning from Prescott, AZ. I launched a new feature this morning = LIVE MUSIC VENUES on the FRONT RANGE
Hope you enjoyed this week’s show. Next week’s show, April 30- May 06 2022, is a SPECIAL – COLORADO MUSIC HALL OF FAME 2011-2022. Next new music episode is tentatively scheduled for May 07-13 2022. Depends on when I get back and if I need a break 😉
Since I tabulate spins on Sundays, there is no TOP 5 this week. There will be a TOP 30 for the month when I return.
On APRIL 16 1974, Queen made their US debut, opening for Mott the Hoople at Regis College (now Regis University) in Denver. This week I honored that special show with cuts from both bands – but this time Mott the Hoople opens for Queen in the set.
I recently searched for “famous singers in Colorado.” Frankly, the results amazed me. I have known about Sons of the Pioneers for many many years, and grew up watching Gunsmoke on black and white television. I had no idea that Ken Curtis was the lead singer of Sons of the Pioneers, nor did I know he played Festus on Gunsmoke in the 50s and 60s.
Another name that popped up in that search was Annaleigh Ashford, who’s appeared on Broadway in Kinky Boots and won a Tony Award for her work in You Can’t Take It With You. She also stars in B-Positive.
