TOP 30 OCTOBER 2020

There are over 20 FM and LPFM (low power FM) non-commercial public/community and college stations in Colorado.  I’m able to track spins at 14 of those stations that have some kind of searchable online database or use Spinitron.

I tracked 200 releases (LP, EP or Single) for the month of October.  A few were advance singles that I got to share on CP network, or that stations got to share in advance of release dates in July.

Cary Morin and Gasoline Lollipops remain the top 2 album titles for the second month – swapping places at 1 &  2.  All the (D) we see listed come courtesy of Indie 102.3, which stands alone in the number of spins they give their monthly featured artists.  No other station in Colorado even comes close in the number of spins they give #COMusic – though other stations air more unique titles overall.

Spinitron’s playlist generator was developed to benefit non-commercial public and educational terrestrial radio stations in the US. Record promoters, agents and artists are among those most likely to benefit from Spinitron’s advanced search function.

CP S14 EP41 2020

Monday NOV 02 2020 – Dear Friends,

Rocky Mountain Music Relief was founded in 2017 to help musicians and music industry personnel in times of environmental and financial crisis; exactly where we find ourselves today.

As a self-employed member of our music community in Colorado I know the trepidation we’re dealing with personally. Of course, none of us ever figured we’d be here, in this place. No one could have ever imagined this scenario.

If you’re a fan, and you can help, please do.  Every $15 donation receives a #COmusic mask.

If you are a professional musician or music industry person in Colorado and you’ve lost your income due to COVID or any of the fires in Colorado, Rocky Mountain Music Relief would like to help.

We are a small non-profit. Our board of directors is made up of Colorado musicians, music industry personnel and music patrons who care. We have limited funds, but we’d like to help as best we can.

Aid qualification: you must have been gainfully employed in the music industry in Colorado in some capacity either as a musician or in production and lost your job and income as a result of COVID or the fires.

You can find applications for aid at https://rockymountainmusicrelief.org/

Deadline for applications is Nov 7.

I know it’s not much, but on behalf of the board of directors I hope it helps in some small way.

TOP 30 SEPTEMBER 2020

Hi gang. I just returned from vacation so this list is shorter as previous months. I’ll be in full power mode by the end of October. Enjoy. ALSO – WordPress changed how I do things so I need to relearn. UGH!

There are over 20 FM and LPFM (low power FM) non-commercial public/community and college stations in Colorado.  I’m able to track spins at 14 of those stations that have some kind of searchable online database or use Spinitron.

I tracked 175 releases (LP, EP or Single) for the month of September.  A few were advance singles that I got to share on CP network, or that stations got to share in advance of release dates in July.

Spinitron’s playlist generator was developed to benefit non-commercial public and educational terrestrial radio stations in the US. Record promoters, agents and artists are among those most likely to benefit from Spinitron’s advanced search function.
