#COMUSIC – TOP 30 FEB 2022

Early morning March 01, 2022 near Kenosha Pass

MARCH 01, 2022 – As you can see, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and the Lumineers have held onto their respective spots atop the February spins chart. Eleven titles stayed in the February TOP 30 from January: Sixteen titles were (D) debuts for the month; eight of which were songs featured for the month at Indie 102.3.

Spin data pulled from the Colorado Playlist105.5 The Colorado SoundIndie 102.3 and eleven stations that use playlist generator Spinitron, designed to benefit non-commercial community/public and college radio stations and offering advanced search functions for artists and agents.

Besides the spins chart published here, check out the weekly Roots Music Report TOP 50 Colorado Chart. Where I track titles going back a year, RMR charts often reflect titles that are more than a couple of years old. RMR also receives spin counts from a different set of reporters in Colorado, as well as from both terrestrial and Internet based radio around the country and Europe.

Titles are linked to their respective YouTube pages, if available.

CP S15 EP25 2021

Monday June 21, 2021 — Happy first day of summer, officially and happy Father’s Day (yesterday). One of the things I’ve been working on doing is learning where and when you’re listening to this show. If you haven’t answered the poll I put up last week I’d appreciated it if you did.

Speaking of polls … every week I post up the MMMM with your chance to let me know if you like the new songs or not. It’s kinda sorta important because the annual listener poll is based on on your responses. Bands that flood the polls with positive responses are known and accounted for.

This week’s MMMM includes the latest from Slow Caves who should easily pick up post-COVID, along with a new soul single from Boulder’s Dechen Hawk and the debut of Bryan Gisburne, who spent most of the past twenty years in the wilderness. (Bryan’s album was serviced to media by Rocky Mountain Music Network LLC, the parent company of the Colorado Playlist).

Two of this week’s TOP 5 #COMUSIC spins are from artists and bands with members who WERE physically living in CO but no longer do so …

John Grant, formerly of the Denver based band the Czars, now lives in Iceland and leads this week’s TOP 5.

Speaking of former Colorado resident musicians, Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon and Great American Taxi) and Chad Staehly (Great American Taxi) make the TOP 5 with the High Hawks debut that also includes Colorado musicians Brian Adams (Great American Taxi) and Will Trask (Jaden Carlson Band, Arthur Lee Land) along with honorary Coloradoan Tim Carbone. Vince now lives in Nashville and Chad lives in Wisconsin.

Dressy Bessy hits the TOP 5 in its first week on the airwaves. John and Tammy decided to release the single independently, telling me they didn’t have a new album ready for their label and wanted to get something out for their fans.

Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by  Andy Sydow.  Every week or so I feature a 7 to 8 minute segment featuring  a conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry personalities. This week’s guest is Reno Divorce front-man Brent Loveday


  1. JOHN GRANT – Boy From Michigan LP (Mar-21)
  2. WEST SIDE JOE & THE MEN OF SOUL – Keep On Climbin’ LP (Apr-21)
  3. CARY MORIN – Dockside Saints LP (Jul-20)
  4. DRESSY BESSY – I’m Still Here SINGLE (Jun-21)
  5. THE HIGH HAWKS – Talk About That LP (Nov-20)

TOP 5 and TOP 30 charts are pulled from published spins at 13 Colorado non-profit community/public and college radio stations.  Designed to benefit non-commercial public and college radio stations, record promoters and artists are among those most likely to benefit from the detailed search function.

Currently 11 Colorado radio stations utilize Spinitron.

The Mishawaka is a legendary music venue, restaurant and bar located 13.7 miles up the Poudre Canyon Highway (CO 14) in the stunning Poudre Canyon in Bellvue, CO.  SEE SHOW LINEUP
