CP S13 EP30 2019

Monday August 5, 2019 – I am in the heat of festival season.  This past weekend I produced and hosted the 12th Annual Carbon Valley Music Festival in Dacono, CO.  It was the most successful in our 12 year run with easily over 4000 (est.) in attendance.

This coming weekend I will emcee the Mountain Ave Stage at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest for my 15th season.  The following weekend I will produce, 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.

All that said, this week’s PLAYLIST is all about Bohemian Nights.  I presented 24 of the 80 acts scheduled to perform this year. See YouTube playlist below.

In other news:  I got an email from a station that ran the show early on for six months, and dropped it.  A new manager at that station stated they’d like to re-add it, scheduling permitting.  #fingerscrossed #CrestedButte

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 JULY 8, 2019 — Happy July 4th, belatedly of course.  I hope you enjoyed your long weekend and got to take in some live music at one of the numerous festivals, municipal events and/or outdoor venues.  I know the storms played havoc with several shows, including Leslie Tom‘s set at Greeley Stampede that unfortunately got rained out after only 30 minutes.

Leslie will be back headlining the Colorado Playlist presents show Well-O-Rama, Aug 17th in Wellington.  I’ll be hosting this new annual event in Wellington, and will be appearing with my band, GOATZ! Also appearing will be the Devil’s Share, Sugar Britches, and Jackie & the Racket.

Wind Over the Earth is a recording studio in Longmont.  On July 1 they began releasing an 18 song compilation benefiting the Longmont High School music program.  The album features cuts from Foxfeather, Shanna in a Dress, Clandestine AmigoTaylor Sims (Bonnie & the Clydes), Bridget Law (Elephant Revival) and Natalie Tate to name just a few.  The full album will be released publicly on July 22.  According to studio owner, Mark Venezia, the album will be made available for a donation to the Longmont High School music program.

New this week is the COLORADO PLAYLIST on Spotify.  I’ve tried tying this to the weekly MMMM but it didn’t seem to work to attract regular weekly fans and listeners.  This will be a permanent playlist on Spotify that I’ll update regularly with new releases and older “hits.”  Enjoy

Don’t forget to vote for your favorites of 2010 and 2011 … and soon 2012-2018, as we get closer to the best of the Decade 2010-2019 that will air in early 2020.

It’s been too many years, IMO, since the Reminders graced us with a new anthem.  Dubbed as Colorado’s the 1st family of hip-hop, the Reminders are among the most enlightened and socially conscious bands in our scene, speaking to truth about not only about our homeland, but the plight of others around the globe.

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 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.

WOW! It’s going to be pushing 75 degrees on Wednesday … ok, I got that out of my system.  I drive a convertible.  I need the sun (and copious amounts of SPF 100 sunscreen).

Besides producing and hosting the Colorado Playlist, I also front my own project called GOATZ! (appropo, yes?)  Honestly, I’ve struggled over the decision to air my own work on my show.  I don’t know if I will or won’t if for no other reason than there is so much tremendous music hitting the in-box; I keep pushing mine off to the back of the line.  That said, here’s my six song debut, Sweet Inspiration.

Earlier this season I posted that KFFR (Winter Park) will be adding the show to their programming.  Last week I appeared on Steve Skinner’s show to talk about my debut record.  He informed me while on the air that they will be adding the Colorado Playlist, hopefully in April .. or as soon as they move into their new studios.

The Colorado Playlist is funded partly by the sponsors on this page along with whatever tips I get from you via the funding and sponsorship page.  Other funding comes from whatever money I can personally contribute – so if you’re inclined, and you like the debut, I’d be grateful if you’d download for whatever amount you’d like.  And thank you.

Over the past several years a handful of hip-hop bands from the region have risen to my attention.  Animated Earth rises to my attention on the strength of several members from bands such as Michal Menert, The Pretty Fantastics, Sassfactory, Grim & Darling, Whiskey Blanket, Glitta Kings and Equally Challenged to name a handful, including such notables as Jordan Polovina (MPC, vocals and cello) and Jessa Raskin (vocals, guitar and slide) who last teamed up in Grim & Darling.

Happy Monday.  The big news over the weekend was the lineup announcement for FOCOMX-11, happening April 26 and 27 in Fort Collins.  FOCOMX marks the official start of the festival season in our region.  Now in its 11th season, the festival is the largest Colorado music showcase, not only in the state but perhaps nationally (as far as I know).

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

If there’s one element about 80’s pop rock that seemed rather ubiquitous throughout it was androgyny. Most knew the style as “glam rock” and Denver’s Love Stallion nails it to the core.  In Valentine, the third video single from the band’s “Unforgettable Ride” debut, lead singer Aaron Hart allows his girlfriend, his Valentine, to transform him into a glamorously  ambiguous performer, resplendent in his form fitting spandex, teased up feathered hair, lipstick and bangles, while belting out what might have risen to hit FM rock radio status circa 1985.
