THIS WEEK ON YOUTUBE

COLORADO TOP 30 JUNE 2021

JULY 1, 2021 -I track thirteen of the state’s twenty plus public, community and college radio stations; eleven via Spinitron. Tracking is not an exact science. Not every dj at every station publishes a playlist and not every station utilizes the automatic playlist generator provided by Spinitron. I tracked nearly two hundred titles in June; eighty-seven received at least one spin on one station in Colorado.

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.

CP S15 EP22 2021

Monday May 31, 2021 – Memorial Day 2021 – the unofficial kickoff to the summer vacation season and outdoor live music season, and there’s a lot of that going on right now. Welcome to post-COVID 2021. Of course that doesn’t mean all things are rosy in the world of live music. Please check your local listings.

No major changes in this week’s TOP 5 with just some repositioning and the addition of punk band Discomfort Creature entering due to high spins from Indie 102.3 last week.

In this week’s MMMM: Younger Colorado music fans likely will not know who Eddie “Devil Boy” Turner is. If you were around Colorado in the late 70s and early 80s you might remember Eddie from his days as the lead guitarist for the band Zephyr before Candy Givens died in January 1984.

Eddie disappeared from the scene after Candy died, showing up briefly in Ron Miles Electric Band before being resurrected in 1995 as lead guitarist on five Otis Taylor albums.

Produced by legendary Colorado-born bassist, songwriter and producer Kenny Passarelli (Barnstorm, Elton John) Change In Me is Eddie’s fourth solo album since 2005’s Rise Again which won him the 2006 Blues Foundation Award for Best New Artist Debut.

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 Leftover Salmon bassist and producer Greg Garrison.

CP S15 EP13 2021

Monday March 29, 2021 – It’s been estimated that there are over fourteen thousand songwriters in Colorado who are registered with one of the top three performance rights organizations (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC). That is all to say there is a LOT of music in our state.

Over the past 30 days I tracked radio airplay for over two hundred individual titles, singles, EP or LP. I will be publishing the March TOP 30 in a few days. Of the over two hundred titles I tracked airplay for, ninety received at least one play at one of the thirteen stations I monitor weekly.

Not much movement in the weekly TOP 5 with Nathaniel Rateliff and A.J. Fullerton looking more and more like the TOP 2 albums leading into the spring. In the meantime, A.J. Fullerton is sitting at #1 in Colorado album titles this week at RootsMusicReport.com.

CP S15 EP12 2021

MONDAY MARCH 22, 2021 – In Colorado music history — that’s something you hear at the top of each hour of the show. This week it was Elton John’s Philadelphia Freedom that was highlighted in HR1.

Elton was a regular at Caribou Ranch Recording Studio in the early 70s. His 4th #1 hit was written during an eight day recording session for Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy, but did not appear on that album.

Instead, it appears on his 1977 Greatest Hits album. He wrote the song for Billie Jean King while she and her team, the Philadelphia Freedoms, were in Denver for a tennis league playoff series. More at Colorado Music Experience.

You ever try to learn something new on the fly? WordPress decided to get rid of the classic editor I’ve been using for 12 years. LMAO. This hurts a little, since I’ve resisted using the newer format in favor of what I’ve known. Oh well.

Let’s try something new this week. Instead of a poll asking if you like a song or not, beginning this week the question will be, “What’s Your Favorite This Week?” See following the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM).

New music this week from Pie Lombardi, Wheelchair Sportscamp, Aaron Bibelhauser & FY5, and Kind Dub f. Sarah Joelle.
