CP S16 EP24 2022

Milky Way at Mountain Home Reservoir, Fort Garland CO, June 2022, taken by Claire Mannato (used with permission)

July 11, 2022 – As I stated last week, taking NOTHING away from Alysia Kraft’s brilliant solo debut, First Light – that album’s debut at #2 in the JUNE TOP 30 and landing at #1 in last week’s TOP 5, happened largely because it was featured heavily on Indie 102.3 in June. I expected to see it fall …

First Light fell from #1 last week to a tie for #13 with three other titles. Interestingly, a flurry of spins at a handful of mountain town stations this past week propelled David Star‘s September 2021 release, Touchstones, to the #1 spot for the week.

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve

July 4, 2022 – Happy JULY 4th! We rolled in yesterday, just in time for me to compile this past week’s TOP 5 Colorado music spins. I’ll post up the June TOP 30 tomorrow.

Well, here I thought the Lumineers would drop off the TOP 5 for the week – but noooooo … they reappeared. Wouldn’t be surprised if they hang around another month or two. In the meantime, Alysia Kraft takes #1 away from Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats .. and Ryan Chrys & the Roughcuts move up to #3.

Don’t forget – your feedback in the MMMM below goes a long way to keeping songs in my rotation, and in what gets nominated for BEST of 2022 .. so please vote.
