CP S13 EP31 2019

MONDAY AUG 12 2019 – Well, it was a long weekend.  For me, it started last Thursday night when I emceed a show at the Levitt Pavilion featuring Andy Thomas’s Lost Walks, and headliner Slim Cessna’s Auto Club.  Then it was onto Bohemian Nights at New West Fest for my 15th season on the Mountain Ave stage.

To say that the music swirls around and through me is an understatement.  What I did manage to glean from the long weekend is that acts like Slim Cessna’s Auto Club (who also performed at Bohemian Nights) are actively working on new releases for later this year and early in 2020.

This coming weekend, I will host and perform at Well-O-Rama in Wellington CO, the first of what I hope will be another continuing series of shows I’m involved with.  The show lineup includes Leslie Tom, GOATZ!, The Devil’s Share, Sugar Britches and Jackie & the Racket.  11AM – 6PM / FREE / FAMILY FUN

KBUT / Crested Butte aired an hour of the show on Sunday Aug 11.  If you’re a part of that scene, pls let them know you would like them to air both hours, in rotation.

I’m not a picture taking kinda person .. but I snapped this one at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest on Sunday at 12:45PM during Head for the Hills set.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

One of the exceptional sets displayed this weekend at Bohemian Nights was the Sunday afternoon opening set by Head for the Hills.  I’ve known this band since they began, roughly twelve years ago now.  Originally, and primarily, a progressive bluegrass band, they have morphed into something other – part funky rhythm and blues, tied to their more traditional underpinnings laid on top of Americana folk and bluegrass.  This video represents their more introspective folkier side.

Monday July 29, 2019 – OK – it’s not every day that you wake up to the Governor of the State of Colorado, Jared Polis, sharing an old Denver Post interview from 2016, and saying how much he loves the Colorado Playlist.  Seriously?  I was giddy like a 13 year old and got weak knees for a second (yes, I told him that… the weak knees part). #starstruck #fanboy

If you haven’t been, I highly encourage stepping over to Colorado Music Experience .  Since leaving the Colorado Music Hall of Fame as executive director a few years ago, G Brown has launched what I consider to be the official and quintessential online archive of Colorado music history.  His daily posts about events, birthdays and more are part of my everyday browsing experience.

We’re up to 30 followers to the Colorado Playlist on Spotify and 110 songs, including recent adds from SUCH, Selina Albright, Gerald Albright, Tia Fuller, Bill Frissell

CP S13 EP27 2019

Monday July 15, 2019 – Rumors started to circulate recently on Facebook (yeah, I know – right?) that Colorado Music Hall of Fame band Sugarloaf had dropped tracks for a new album.  Of course original members Jerry Corbetta (lead singer), Bob Yeazel (guitarist) and Bob Raymond (bassist) have all passed away, so the news of some kind of Sugarloaf “reunion” came as a real surprise.  Turns out the story has a little truth to it .. .from a family of the band perspective.

According to Bob Raymond‘s son Aaron, “We did go into studio with my son (Bailey Raymond aka Kick Stevens) and re-recorded Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You and Texas Two Lane. Clark Hagan (local Denver producer) did the producing.  He also did a recording of Green-Eyed Lady with (original members) Bob Webber (guitar), Bobby Pickett (bass), Myron Pollack (drums) and another guy from Nashville. Sorry I don’t remember his name. Hope to have the two new songs released this winter. We are still working on the vocals.”

Stay tuned …

I reported last week on the wonderful compilation from Longmont’s Wind Over the Earth recording studio’s “Longmont Project” to benefit Longmont High School’s music program.  The new track below from Bridget Law is from that project.

This week, the Boulder Daily Camera has a story on Future Arts Foundation (FAF) and their series called Strings & Stories taking place in Longmont. Future Arts Foundation is “a nonprofit that supplies musical instruments and art materials to public schools and after-school programs.”  Strings & Stories is a concert series put together by FAF and 105.5 The Colorado Sound.

COLORADO PLAYLIST – SPOTIFY

I’ve added many many more classic Colorado hits.  Right now the playlist is at about 100 titles, with only one track per artist or band.  If you have suggestions please message me.

MONDAY JUNE 24, 2019 – Rumors swirled over the weekend concerning former Yonder Mountain String Band founding member Jeff Austin.  Despite numerous social media posts alluding to a possible suicide, official reports emerged that he suffered a undisclosed medical emergency and was is Seattle with family being attended to.  What little information is available, and crowdfunding has been set up at Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

In this week’s show I highlighted some of the best of 2013 in  HOUR 1 and some of the best of 2014 in HOUR 2.  Over the next many weeks I will continue to highlight some of the best of each year as we approach the BEST OF THE DECADE.  With that, I’ve put up two polls already for Best of 2010 and 2011, so you can vote for your favorites from those years.

MMMM this week = Gun Street Ghost, Heavy Diamond Ring, Bobby Messano, Swerve, The Threadbarons, and Brian Bourgault – KEEP or DELETE?

Monday May 19, 2019

It doesn’t happen often – but it sure did this week as I was able to rip open five new tracks that are currently not available online – not on YouTube, Bandcamp, SoundCloud or Reverbnation, the sites I use to share new tracks for the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  Artists are sending me stuff LONG before they can get them online, or in the case of Clandestine Amigo, to not put them out online for public consumption at all.

Songs from Clandestine Amigo, Dust Heart, Kyle Emerson, Coal Town Reunion, and Andy Eppler were only made available this week for radio airplay on the Colorado Playlist.  They are NOT available, at this time, online.

Coming in the next episode, new music from Alan & Martin, Courtney Hartman, Jackson Emmer, Grayson Erhard, Stillhouse Junkies and Tyto Alba.


The Colorado Playlist is supported by The Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Oskar Blues Brewery, and the Bohemian Foundation. Additional support comes from the fans – you!  Please consider supporting the show by making a contribution.

I’ve been a fan of the Samples since they emerged in the late 80s, here in Colorado.  Formed, and not fully fronted, by Sean Kelly, the Samples have put out over 20 albums since their debut in 1989.  They’ve got a new album coming out soon called “Indian Summer.”  This is the first single from the album.

CP S13 EP16 2019

Monday April 15, 2019

There’s not enough time or space in the show to play every new piece of music I receive.  #firstworldproblem I usually try to get 2 debuts in every hour, as well as a (N) new track from a previous debut.  But right now, we’re fat with new music emanating from the Centennial State.

I put in a couple extra new tracks this week, where usually I’d be able to play a cut or two from already played albums or singles I’d like to give more airtime to.  Because, really, repetition breeds familiarity, which is how hits are made. Let me know which of the new songs you think I should keep in the Playlist.

Many thanks and big love to Westword, SceneNoCO and Bandwagon Magazine for the articles about me and my debut.  And many many thanks to the folks at Bohemian for inviting my band GOATZ! to play at Magic Rat this past week, and at Washington’s FoCO opening for Blackhawk on May 12.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Sometimes you write a song and it takes years to mature to what it’s meant to be …sorta like a fine wine or whiskey.  “Hold On Me” is a song written by Taylor Sims, one half of the Taylor and Bonnie Sims duo that makes up the core of Bonnie & the Clydes.  Taylor originally wrote it for his old band, Springcreek Bluegrass.  In this more “country” arrangement, the couple dives straight into the story.

CP S13 EP15 2019

Monday April 8, 2019

When I started doing this show 13 years ago this weekend, I had already been booking bands and or consulting on Colorado talent for a handful of years.  It was because of those bands, bands such as Yo, Flaco!, Love.45, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, DeVotchKa and countless others, that I thought I was seeing something very special in our state.

When the Fray hit big with How to Save A Life in 2005, it wasn’t the first time a Colorado band hit big, but it was by far the biggest a Colorado band had ever hit.  By 2015, the single How to Save A Life, became the 4th best-selling song in digital music history.  OneRepublic came along and destroyed those records with Apologize in 2007 and Counting Stars in 2014, a song that is still by far the biggest hit in Colorado Music History.

I look forward to seeing that lies ahead for us as our scene continues to explode nationally, and internationally.  One thing to look forward to this is the BEST OF THE DECADE … I’ll start working on that here soon.  In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out this week’s MMMM and vote to either KEEP or DELETE the songs from the Colorado Playlist.
