CP S12 EP42 2018

 Monday Nov 5, 2018 – It’s pretty rare that jazz gets featured in the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) – but this week there are two cuts – one from Jason Klobnak and one from Keith Oxman, who shockingly in this era has no social media or web presence but whose new album is on Spotify.

There were a few cuts not available for this week’s Spotify playlist – so this one runs 1 hour 19 mins.  Enjoy

COMING SOON!  New Brent Loveday & the Dirty Dollars will show up in EP44 of the show.  If you don’t know who Brent Loveday is – look up Reno Divorce.  The new album took several years for Brent to put together, and is one that dives into his alt-country-rock  voice.

The Colorado Sound – V4 EP10 2012

Ok, so I like keep telling folks – if it ain’t from Colorado I don’t know jack — so how was I supposed to know that the new Big Head & the Monsters “Sexy and I Know It” is a cover of the LFMAO track?   Huh?  Well?  If it ain’t from Colorado I don’t know it … (with extremely few exceptions).    I had to go to youtube to check out the LFMAO version (also finding Todd’s solo version … see below).  Can’t say as I care much for LFMAO’s version, but then I’m not a Venus beach type anyway — give me some “303” – speaking of which, Broken Tongues is representin’ – check out their intro video below … … Todd’s version of the song is much better IMO LOL.

I had one very great nearly three hour hang over a couple pints of Irish ale with Katie Glassman this week … after doing sound for her trio last week I became enthralled with the uniqueness of her voice – vocally and musically.  Turns out that before Sir Paul McCartney did his swing album, Katie had envisioned doing one of her own, complete with five songs that ultimately appeared on Paul’s disc … so, she does the Beatles classic Honey Pie and would love to get it to Sir Paul.  Anyone got his number?  If so, please pass it along to Katie.

Katie’s Snapshot gets my nod for featured album of the month on the Colorado Sound.  John Macy at Silo along with friends like bassist Eric Thorin who arranged / co-arranged four of the tracks, and an all-star band that includes keyboardist Eric Moon and E-tones drummer Christian Teele as well as over a dozen other world class session players and award winners  make it one seriously fun record … especially if you’re into Texas country-swing-jazz with a dollup of airy indie-pop cuteness drizzled throughout Katie’s vocal stylization.

The Lumineers is counted as a debut this week – although I’ve had this particular track for several weeks now, Dualtone just sent the album out – and it’s picking up mad adds at stations around the state, including  KBCO (Boulder), KFMU (Steamboat), KSMT (Breckenridge), KSPN (Aspen), and KYSL (Breckenridge) – making it a sure shot for a #1 Out of the Box (OTB) DEBUT for the month.

And just because it’s too much fun, I included the newly released video from the Hickman-Dalton Gang in this week’s post … ’bout one of the best country videos I’ve seen come out of CO the past couple of years… it forces at least a big grin and some foot stompin. … lay that one in next to Gary Bragg’s hilarious Free Range video

Here’s what got played on this week’s show.

Slim Cessna’s Auto Club “This Is How We Do It in the Country” from Blovdy Tenent Trvth Peace (2004)

News, Notes & Spins – October 1, 2011

Can you believe it’s October already?  In all of about the next 60 days (from Oct 1) we’ll be asking what your favorite titles are from the past year … and I’ll post the year end charts; that of course at the end of the year – but to do that means a month of work in advance…. And a lot of reviewing for those who might be a bit behind in listening to what’s up in Colorado in 2011.  It will be interesting to see what titles our on-air programmers and others pick as their favorites / most played of 2011.

Plenty of radio news this month, including two NEW “radio” stations on the horizon, one AM based and one Internet based.  I got the chance to sit and talk to Mike Flanagan, the new program director for OpenAir 1340, set to launch Oct 31.  Mike’s planning a unique mix of contemporary music, buffered with in studio performances and interviews with both Colorado acts and acts performing in Colorado.  In-studio sessions coming up from the likes of Candy Claws and others are apparently already set up and ready to go.

I have to give a HUGE thumbs up to the CPR (Colorado Public Radio) performance/recording studio; it is truly a world class facility, geared to a very high standard of sound, recording capabilities, and contemporary aesthetics.

Also taking place – Former Indie 101.5 music director John “Whip” Wilbur and ex-Lipglosser Tyler Jacobson have teamed up to launch Post303Radio.com, featuring contemporary indie and alternative music not heard on most commercial stations, with a heavy dose of Colorado music mixed in.  Could Dave Herrera be willing to reprise his old local music show?  Hmmm….

In either case, we can expect to find more Colorado music of all varieties on the air in the near future along the Front Range and online.

Danielle Hastings has joined the KRFC staff as the new Fund Development Specialist. Danielle’s known in Fort Collins for her work with FoCoMA (Fort Collins Musicians Association) and Bohemian Nights at New West Fest. Danielle is a very passionate supporter of Colorado music and KRFC’s new more Colorado focused format.  Her primary responsibility this fall will be to develop the KRFC underwriting program and sponsorships and she will be playing a big role in creating more community connections and shaping the future of Development and fund raising at KRFC.

KGNU’s 33 1/3 birthday is coming up.  They’ll have a vinyl celebration on Monday 10/17, during their next membership drive, 10/12-10/22

KRCC presents a live broadcast of Garrison Keillor’s A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION Saturday, October 29 at the Colorado Springs World Arena.  Doors open at 2:45pm with showtime beginning promptly at 3:45pm

If you plan on trying to reach KDNK asst. music director Lynette O’Kane from now til Nov, you’re SOL LOL … she’s off on a five wk vaca in Morocco, Spain & France.  Hmmmm … I wonder how many times she’s been asked if there’s extra space in those travel trunks … ALSO at KDNK — news reporter Mat Katz has moved on to another job in New York. Ed Williams is on board.

Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM goood!)

Okay, so it’s Monday morning, March 8. I’m having my coffee and wondering what new feature to add to this here new site… Since Tuesday is the traditional reporting day to the trades, I thought maybe a Monday morning music meeting would be cool. A place to write about new releases that came in during the past week – and that maybe got tested over the weekend. Whatcha think? I can launch it on Monday and those of you who are music directors around the state can post your comments as you see fit during the week? What new Colorado music did you add to your libraries? What releases are impressing your djs? Let’s talk….

New in the RMMN offices this past week.

Tommy Metz aka iuengliss – The Blossom Frontier
Genre/Style: electronica/dance, pop
Website: You’ve got two choices here. You can go to http://tommymetz.com/ and download the entire new album for free, or go to http://www.myspace.com/tommymetz for information and to hear the trax he’s posted there.

Molina Soleil & Aju w/ DJ Icewater – Soulaju
Genre/Style: hip-hop, neo-soul
Website: http://www.myspace.com/soulaju
Notes: Impressive act heavy on multiculturalism (Aju speaks 5 languages). They have an impressive touring schedule that includes stops throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Missouri, Oregon, California to name a few. According to their website: Molina Soleil & Aju are set to release “Soulaju” on March 23rd, 2010. It features the production of DJ Icewater, who has toured internationally with the Pharcyde and Shing02, and has recently mixed albums for artists like Lyrics Born and Jern Eye.

Romano Paoletti – Story of a Lifetime
Genre/Style: Americana, country, folk
Website: http://romanosmusic.com/
Notes: produced by Eric Thorin (Drew Emmitt Band). Features Eric Thorin, Sally Van Meter, Caleb Roberts, Eben Grace, Todd Moore, John McVey and Mollie O’brien and others. His grandfather, “Ragtime” Bob Darch, was the only living inductee of the Ragtime Hall of Fame. Romano’s mother, Norma Jean, was always a singer and was signed by Smokey Robinson of Motown Records.  He spent a lifetime with both of these people learning his craft.  It shows in his performances on the record.

David Williams & The Wildgrass Band featuring Kristina Murray – The Crazy Kind
Genre/Style: Americana, country, folk, bluegrass
Website: The best place I’ve found to sample tracks is at the CD Baby page for this album – cdbaby.com/cd/dwilliamswkmurray or hit http://myspace.com/davidwilliamssongs
Notes: The album features performances by Rockygrass mandolin winner Jordan Ramsey, Rockygrass banjo winner Chris Elliott, national fiddle champion (Weiser, ID) Katie Glassman and renowned Colorado bassist Duane Webster.
From website: David is  the 2009 EMMY AWARD WINNER IN COMPOSITION AND WRITING. Influenced by everything from gypsy jazz to folk, delta blues, swing, rockabilly, bluegrass & folk. As a singer-songwriter, David’s known for his way with words and melodies, which conjure up the American musical landscape.  His songs touch on everything from the difficulties of love to the people and places along old Route 66, or a carnival from his childhood, or swing tunes reminiscent of Tin-Pan-Alley—in a wide range of CDs released over the last 30 years.

As musician, David has recorded and performed with Greg Brown, Dave Moore and others; and he studied and performed with the great Jethro Burns, of Homer and Jethro fame.  He has played at many of the large folk music festivals in North America, such as Vancouver and Winnipeg, where he has been recognized as both a songwriter and instrumentalist.

Recently, he has written a new musical/play about Django Reinhardt.  His group DECO DJANGO specializes in this infectious music from the 1930s.

David has also published a number of books with Alfred A. Knopf and Ghost Road Press, as well as short stories and poems. He holds a Ph.D. in English, and he has been a writer in residence at a number of colleges and universities in the US.  A working cartoonist, his work appears around the world through Carlton Cards and Soultrader of London.

He is an ALA and NAPPA award-winning albums for children and is currently the songwriter for the new PBS children’s show The Big Green Rabbit.  As DIRTY LINEN says, no one else writes kids songs like DW.

The Crazy Kind is not a kid’s music record.  David Williams is most definitely one of Colorado’s most literary country-folk artists.
