HAPPY VETERANS DAY
NEVER FORGET 

As we approach the midway point of November, it seems that site traffic has hit a hard roadblock of sorts. I hope you’ll remember to stop by and check out the new music in the MMMM and vote to KEEP or DELETE.

As this is the time of the year to give thanks – I cannot give enough to the stations and listeners who make this show possible.  I would love to meet you … and with that I’ll be appearing with my long time musical partner Chris Jackowski and local teenage fiddle phenom Jackson Earles at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins on NOV 17, and with my full electric band lineup at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on NOV 24.  I hope you can come by so I can thank you in person for your support.

NEW this week YouTube Colorado Playlist of all the tracks from this week’s episode .. which includes new MMMM tracks from Foxfeather, AMZYKing Eddie, AMZY, Kid Reverie, Joe Johnson, and Tnertle.

Make sure you follow me on Spotify to find out what new artists I might be checking out.  This week’s Spotify playlist is short some fine tracks from SUCH, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Zephyr and Alpha Centauri

I found all of this week’s tracks on YouTube – the first CP YouTube weekly playlists.  Pls let me know what you think.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Speaking of Zephyr — very very happy that they along with original lead guitarist Tommy Bolin will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2019.

Also being inducted is the truly legendary Freddie-Henchi Band.  Both Zephyr and the Freddi-Henchi Band were signed early on their careers in the late 60s, but wound up being more regionally famous as time went on;   Zephyr until Candy’s death in 1984, and the FHB until the mid to late 80s when various life issues (drugs, booze, etc) decimated the band.

FHB would re-emerge in the mid 90s for a brief run.  Freddi “Love” Gowdy appears with Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy today.

CP S12 EP40 2018

 Monday Oct 22 2018 … Here in about another two weeks we enter the 2019 release year – which will include any NEW releases submitted for airplay after Nov 1.

2018 has been a rather amazing year.  Currently in the CP song catalog for 2018 there are over 390 song titles … from over 100 LPs alone – not including EPs and single releases.

So far this year I’ve seen more singles released than at any time I’ve done this show over the paste 12 years.  This weekend I spoke with the owners of one of our prestigious studios.  They affirmed they’ve seen more singles being produced than at any time they could recall.

Basically, it’s going to make for an interesting end of year “Best Of.”

Congratulations to Randall Frazier and Elisa Canali.  Randall is the long time production manager and talent buyer for Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox as well as a longtime label owner (Helmut Room), sound and recording engineer, producer, tour manager and musician in the scene.  Randall and Elisa met when Randall took her on as an intern learning sound.  She is now Randall’s assistant and soon to be legally married life partner.  Much love to both …

Ophelia’s has also announced they’re launching a new label based on live recordings that Randall will produce at the venue.  The launch is set for early 2019.

The Colorado Music Hall of Fame class for 2018 has been announced.  It’s a night dedicated to AEG’s Chuck Morris, who got started promoting shows in Boulder in the late 60s.  Also being inducted – 97.3FM KBCO, a pioneering station with air talent that reaches back into the 70s and 80s.

The show will include performances by Amos Lee, Leo KottkeTodd Park Mohr & Brian Nevin (Big Head Todd & the Monsters), Isaac Slade & Ben Wysocki (the Fray), Bill Nershi and members of the String Cheese Incident, Drew Emmit & Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon) and the Lumineers.  The house backing band for the show is Chris Daniels & the Kings.  Governor Hickenlooper will be hosting the roast of Chuck Morris.  Dec 3 2018 – The Paramount Theater.

 Monday Oct 15 2018 – The week starts off with some pretty fine news.  Rolling Stone France apparently spotlighted 4 Colorado acts – The Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club and A.J. Fullerton – the multi-award winning blues artist originally from the Western Slope.

When you’re recognized internationally along with two of the biggest acts in modern popular music, that says something about how you’re affecting people positively with your music.  WTG A.J.

Something to watch / listen for in S12 EP41 of the show that will air Oct 20-26 … Henderson Goodale and Betsy Mortenson from Sustain Nature & Music stopped by the goat den last week to chat about their organization.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Many people who live in our area today may not remember that Jill Sobule grew up in Denver in the 60s and 70s, and attended CU in Boulder.  It was only after she left the area to pursue music professionally that she had a hit in the 90s’ with I Kissed A Girl (no, not the more recent hit by the same name).  Since then, Jill has become known internationally as an exceptional folk artist — though her newest hit may not actually show her in that light.

CP S12 EP23 2018

A NOTE about the MMMM … When I started it many months ago I intended it as a way to share the new music in this blog that I debuted each week in the broadcast version of the show. I never intended the KEEP or DELETE feature to be a way for fans of a band to just come in and run up votes without also experiencing the other new cuts I share … which has happened more and more over time.

I can tell every time a band’s fans only vote for the band that drives them to the poll.  A song may get 60+ KEEP votes while five other songs get a bare handful of votes.

I appreciate every vote that every song earns.  I hope those who vote for one song at least check out others that are shared.

It’s never easy to announce the end of an era, especially when it entails the death of a friend or family member. Last Wednesday, as I was finishing up production on EP23 news flashed across my FB pg that Coupe Studios (Boulder) founder Scott Roche passed away from cancer.

I did not know Scott well.  We knew each other professionally through the scene, and he always wanted me to know about some new record coming from Coupe.  I actually got to record one song there, one my late wife wrote called Once Upon a Snowflake.  It was the very first song I ever recorded.

The history of Coupe Studios will not end with Scott.  He was wise enough to know that all life ends and if the studio was to continue then younger people had to do the work – so he set it up that way – that a couple of younger guys would move the vision forward.

Long live Coupe Studios (founded in a chicken coop) – RIP Scott Rouch.

Weeks like this don’t come around too often.  It’s with a tremendous amount of gratitude that I announce the addition of  the Music Programs at Bohemian Foundation as the new sponsor of the Colorado Playlist – including the Music District, the Historic Armory, and Washington’s Fort Collins.

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community. An effective way to build community connections is by coming together to create and enjoy music.

Coming June 17 for a special Father’s Day show = Sierra Hull, a Nashville star on the rise, with Yonder Mountain String Band mandolinist Jacob Jolliffe and his band.  Tix etc at www.armoryfoco.com

I’m pretty honored this week to present a Colorado Playlist premiere.  In case you missed the show on the radio airwaves around the state, I presented the premiere of a new Katey Laurel track, Daydream, off her upcoming new EP of the same name dropping on June 26.

Katey has been among my favorite adult contemporary artists in the scene for many years.  Throughout her career she’s exemplified what it means to be a professional – approaching both her song-craft and business with the highest standards, and along the way earning considerable praise and accolades in not only our scene but nationally as well.  Check out her bio.

I was absolutely blown away this weekend when I opened my email and got the message that Head for the Hills was moving forward with a new sound, and a new lineup.  The newest member, Sam (mandolin) is leaving the band and original founding members, Adam, Joe and Matt have decided on keeping it going after 15 years – and embracing sounds far outside their core bluegrass sound it seems, at least based on the video below recorded live at their annual Pickin On the Poudre show at the Mishawaka.

CS S12 EP16 2018

FOCOMX has come and gone for another year.  In the ten years I’ve been going it’s usually as one of the production crew – running sound and stage in one of the rooms.  Not this year.  This year I was performing – in Denver on Friday night and in my band’s third annual appearance at FOCOMX on Saturday night.

Incredibly summer like weather produced what looked like a record number of people out and about on Saturday evening.  Our first stop was to see Jeff Finlin at Avogadro’s .. and the 100 cap seated room was standing room only at 4PM.

I managed to catch sets or parts of from Novalectric, J Shogren Shanghai’d from WY who I’ve wanted to see for many years, Last Call Romance and a couple of others before I turned into something other than a goat.

Our own set at Tony’s Rooftop was very well attended and received by the crowd.  Couldn’t ask for more.  Thanks and congratulations to the folks at FOCOMA (Fort Collins Musicians Assoc) for an incredible 10th Anniversary.

One incredibly sad bit of news to pass along this week is the passing of Denver Joe – a character on Capitol Hill for as long as I can remember – especially as the doorman at the infamous Cricket on the Hill.  Local musician Chris Rail Chamberlayne wrote some of the best tribute to Joe this weekend on his FB page.
