CP S17 EP06 2023

February 6, 2023 – I was hoping for either Yonder Mountain String Band or the Infamous Stringdusters to bring a Grammy home to Colorado, but no such luck this year.

Every once in a while it happens. I get sent a record WEEKS before it goes live on your favorite streaming source. In this week’s show there were pre-release debuts from Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck and one from the solo debut from Trent Nelson (Strange Americans).

As I sat here yesterday tabulating this week’s spins I was very pleasantly surprised to see the new album Four from Colorado Music Hall of Fame guitarist Bill Frisell debut at #3.


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.

CP S14 EP27 2020

Monday July 13 2020 – I can’t recall a time when I was told I couldn’t play something that had already been released to the public via streaming sites or YouTube.  But that’s exactly what’s happening with some good friends of mine.

Bonnie and Taylor Sims are both Bonnie & the Clydes and a side project called Everybody Loves an Outlaw.  An ELAO song called “I See Red” hit twelve million spins on Spotify. Add in the 2+ million plays on YouTube and you have a verified hit.  BUT … radio cannot play it.  So I cannot play it.  BUT – I can share it.  Here only.  Not on the show.  Not until I’m told I can by the label.  In the meantime, here’s a new video from Bonnie & Taylor doing the hit “solo.”

Another new release is also sitting in my catalog that I can’t play on the radio, but can share here.  “All the Misery Money Can Buy” is the latest from my pals in Gasoline Lollipops.  It’s available wherever you get your music.  And it’s the best thing they’ve done to date.  The new album, recorded in Louisiana, is due out September 11.


Spinitron  Designed to benefit non-commercial public and college radio stations, record promoters are among those most likely to benefit from the detailed search function. Currently 12 Colorado radio stations use Spinitron.
