Monday DEC 28, 2020 – HAPPY HOLLY DAZE for the last time in 2020. The Listener Poll was fun; thank you. It was the first time I ran a silent poll where you didn’t get to see the results as they were taking place. Where I can see it made a difference was in the mad rush of fans of bands to crush the results.
Except for one, it was a balanced result – with only 4 of the TOP 50 not receiving any votes and none receiving only one. Your TOP 12 +1 (my jazz pick) is in Hour 2 below.
Hour 1 took some doing. There is a lot of airplay worthy music in Colorado. There has been more airplay worthy music in our state for several years than what can reasonably be played on any show, or radio station. I picked thirteen I thought had good stories to tell you about.
COMING JANUARY 8TH 2021
