Ok. I. Am. Brain-dead. Gonna be a very crazy week – and I just got done a crazy week. So, DPUMS 2014 is done. Video from the acts that I did sound for at the South Broadway Christian Church on my youtube channel.
On to the next weekend. Emcee Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live with Manabi on Thursday in Fort Collins. Friday and Saturday The Colorado Sound Presents The Samples & the Matt Skinner Band on Friday night and then a full day of music on Saturday with the Richie Furay Band and more as part of the 7th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival in Dacono. Very much looking forward to hosting the Richie Furay Band Saturday night. That’s like a dream come true for this goat. …
Guess what’s NOT happening this month? The TOP 40 spins chart for July spins. Not gonna happen – sorry. At least not until after all this craziness subsides (maybe next week?). I do have to say how much of an honor it was last week to have so many people walk up to me around the region and say they heard the show on KUNC. Thanks you guys!
The Colorado Sound is supported by contributions, and by the generous support of our sponsors – Colorado Case Company, The Mishawaka Amphitheatre and by SpokesBUZZ – pls visit their sites to see what’s up. I’ll be on hand at the Mish on SPT 6 to present The Motet, whose latest self titled album has been among the most popular this year so far.
OFFSTAGE …BEYOND THE MUSIC
EP1|PT2 with Chris Daniels
Taking two hours of conversation and finding a couple of 15-20 minute segments was a lot harder than I originally envisioned. PT1 and PT2 are available on the OSBTM page. Here’s PT2 for you to download. Make sure to grab the Soundcloud app so you can listen on your smartphone or in the car when you’re out and about.
