CP S15 EP17 2021

Monday April 26, 2021 – I usually put most of this blog post together on Sunday nights and write final thoughts here on Monday morning. BUT – “today” is Saturday April 24. I’ll be on the road the next two days. I’ll also be on the road next weekend, when I travel to Durango for the Tico Time RV Resort Bluegrass Festival.

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 Chris Zacher, founder and executive director for the non-profit music venue, Levitt Pavilion and chairperson for the Colorado Independent Venue Association.

TOP 5 APRIL 24, 2021

The Colorado super-group Del Shamen, featuring John Magnie and Steve Amadee from the Subdudes, Nick Forster from E-Town and Hot Rize and Jock Bartley of Firefall fame, take top position thanks mostly to spins in Fort Collins and Paonia. Otherwise, other than shifting a notch or two, the TOP 5 looks the same as last week.

Valdez stays near the top thanks to the top two regional independent music stations, 105.5 The Colorado Sound and Indie 102.3, both of which have been featuring cuts from Wishbones the past two weeks. Same goes for *John Grant (honorary Coloradoan via the Czars and local family). Grant has a new single out that I’m sure both stations will give some love to.

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.

  1. DEL SHAMEN – Del Shamen LP (Oct-20)
  2. VALDEZ – Wishbones LP (Apr-20)
  3. JOHN GRANT – Boy From Michigan SINGLE (Mar-21)
  4. A.J. FULLERTON – The Forgiver and the Runaway LP (Mar-21)
  5. WEST SIDE JOE & THE MEN OF SOUL – Keep On Climbin’ LP (Apr-21)

CP S15 EP16 2021

Monday April 19, 2021 – A Colorado music legend passed away last week. Poco founding member and sole remaining original member of the band, Rusty Young passed away last week at the age of 75. Rusty’s Colorado origins go back to the mid-sixties when he and future Poco drummer and vocalist George Grantham were in the psychedelic rock band Boenzee Cryque. I’ll pay tribute to Rusty in the next episode of the show, airing April 24-30.

TOP FIVE April 17 2021

Album of the week status at 105.5 The Colorado Sound and featured artist of the month at Indie 102.3 pushed the new album from Valdez (Nate Valdez from in the Whale) to #1 on this week’s TOP 5.

Del Shamen and West Side Joe & the Men of Soul share a key member in common in Steve Amadee (Subdudes) on drums and vocals. West Side Joe debuts in the TOP 5 while Del Shamen pulled strong spins around the state to land at #2.

*John Grant stays hot with both 105.5 The Colorado Sound and Indie 102.3 featuring his latest single about breaking up with his boyfriend.

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.

Monday APRIL 05, 2021 – WOW! Nathaniel Rateliff got knocked off of his perch at #1, falling to #5. A.J.
