MONDAY MARCH 13, 2023. Claire and I are off to Death Valley this week. Looking forward to some desert warmth and spring flowers. So, if there’s no post next Monday, you know why.

The word is out that I’m “retiring.” Not entirely. I’m leaving Northern Colorado radio & music after a forty-five year run and moving to Grand Junction. I will continue to produce the Colorado Playlist. And who knows what else I can do in “retirement.”


Spin data pulled from the Colorado Playlist105.5 The Colorado SoundIndie 102.388.9 KRFC  and ten other stations that use playlist generator Spinitron, offering search functions for artists and agents to track airplay.

*The Wood Brothers are not, specifically speaking, a locally based band, but as it custom on the Colorado Playlist I also include Colorado expats living elsewhere – so long as they were born and raised here, or got started here .. so the new Wood Brothers tracks (one due out in April) get included.*

I designed the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM) as a way for you to let me know what you think of new music emerging from around the state. Results enter into which cuts stay in rotation, and which cuts make the final “best of” list.
