Monday March 16 2020 – We are living in some crazy times. Nearly every person I know personally is somehow connected to the business surrounding music. For many of us, it’s our direct livelihood.
As we all know by now, nearly every major event – music, theater and sports – has either been canceled or postponed to a later date. For now, no one knows when things will return to normal.
Over the weekend, Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene, as well as Bonnie & The Cyldes Bonnie & Taylor Sims held FaceBook live shows from their respective homes. The Crime Scene reported over 4600 streams. Pretty damn impressive. Let’s keep these shows going.
At the bottom of this page today, following THIS WEEK ON YOUTUBE, there is a note about how we can all help a little …
One non-music (well, almost non-music) event to let you know about. The NOCO HEMP EXPO scheduled for March 27-28 has been rescheduled for August 6-8. Thanks to them for their financial support. I’m looking forward to emceeing their Northern Colorado “super-star” show, alongside Denver rock radio legend Uncle Nasty. See you there in August.
The Colorado Playlist is fully dependent on financial support from my sponsors … if you’re a music related business and you’d like to sponsor the show, email me at email@example.com
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
OneRepublic has a new album dropping May 3. It’s called HUMAN. We are all that – all of us.
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING (MMMM)
You make a big difference in what gets played on the show. Every week I share some or all of the new music played on the show with you, here in the MMMM. Your rating gets factored into my decision in what to maintain in the show’s “for airplay” library.
A REMINDER: Please listen to ALL of the songs and rate them. Thanks 🙂
(D) = debut LP/EP or single
(N) = new track from previously debuted LP/EP
(P) = Colorado Playlist premier / not available online
Let me know if there’s something you think I should play. Email firstname.lastname@example.org

THIS WEEK ON YOUTUBE
ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF
A couple of years ago some friends and I launched Rocky Mountain Music Relief, a non-profit dedicated to helping musicians in our area due to natural disasters. I’d like to activate it in order to help out during this time of need in our community. I’m not sure I know what that looks like to be honest.
Our health and well being are paramount, and that includes the need for medical care, food and adequate housing. While we work on how best to activate our mission to serve our local musicians in need during this natural disaster, please donate.
Also, I’ve noticed some musicians doing live sets via Facebook Live and other means. Let’s do our best to support these efforts. I have many friends whose national and international tours have been either canceled or postponed. I have many more friends who survive at least partially on local gigs – that are now cancelled.
SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC ONLINE TODAY. SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR YOUR FAVORITE MUSICIANS FROM COLORADO BY VIEWING THEIR FACEBOOK LIVE SHOWS. PLEASE TIP WHAT YOU CAN, BUT IF NOTHING ELSE YOUR LOVE MATTERS MOST.
