CP S16 EP27 2022 – GRAND JUNCTION

View from Colorado National Monument looking north towards Grand Junction and Fruita

AUG 01 2022 – WOW! You all blew the monthly view count out of the park! Thank you for visiting. I’ll get the JULY monthly spins up in a day or two. In the meantime, check out the new music and videos in this week’s MMMM from Twenty Hands High, Dayton Stone & the Undertones, Violet Pilot and Dzirae Gold.

We finally got to visit Colorado Playlist sponsor Starr’s Guitars in Cedaredge! If you’re looking for some nice wood, this is the place. Yeah, they send, but they’d rather you stop by the store. I sat and picked on a few beautiful Larrivee guitars – my favorite since I own two. It was great to meet store manager Candace. Sadly, David Starr wasn’t home this trip. Next time my friend!

Speaking of visiting Cedaredge – we spent a few days in Grand Junction this past week. We went to a show at the Avalon Theater. This is one of the nicest sit-down venues in our state. At just under 1100 seats, the recently renovated state-of-the art theater features comfortable seating, exquisite line of sight, sound and lighting, all experienced while sitting near the back of the orchestra section.

Local blues legend Bobby Walker has opened there for several national stars many times over the years. David Starr will be supporting the classic yacht rock band America coming up on Aug 20.

Another Grand Junction venue worth visiting is the Mesa Theater, about a two minute walk down the block from the Avalon on Main Street. There was a poster up featuring the Tejon Street Corner Thieves from Colorado Springs who recently appeared there. InTheWhale is there on AUG 27.

If you’re partying on Main Street in Grand Junction, there are several very nice restaurants to enjoy. We ate at the Winery, a long standing fine dining restaurant in a “…90 year old building that used to house a horse drawn carriage fire station.” Buyer beware, this is not a budget friendly restaurant.

There’s also the French inspired LeRouge! We enjoyed one of the nicest charcuteries we’ve had anyplace, before the concert. They and the Winery have wonderful wine lists, as you’d expect of the region. And then there’s the British Isles themed Goat and Clover Tavern. You KNOW we ate there! Every picture in the place has a goat in it. Hmmmmm.

The British / Irish Pub inspired menu features bangers and mash as well as corned beef and cabbage …and somehow or other the owners are connected to Elijah Craig bourbon distillers.

I will be returning to Grand Junction to emcee KAFM‘s Annual Radio Daze Music Fest and Fundraiser on Sept 10.

Don’t overlook Grand Junction! Also, the wineries in the area are big supporters of Colorado based acoustic music.

CP S16 EP11 2022

Antero Reservoir. CO – Looking SE towards Colorado Springs at about 4AM in subzero temps right around March 01, 2022. Photo courtesy of Claire Mannato.

Monday MARCH 14, 2022 – Sixty-nine Colorado current year releases (March 2021 to March 2022) got some airtime on at least fifteen (there are a handful I don’t track) Colorado community and college radio stations this past week. That’s sixty-nine out of the two hundred that are currently on my tracking sheet. So, is that good or bad?

As things go, it’s pretty good. One station, where I’m proud to call home on Saturday mornings the past six years – 105.5 The Colorado Sound – typically spins thirty to thirty-two current Colorado titles a week at least once; NOT including what I play on the Colorado Playlist on Saturday (6AM) and Sunday (6PM).

Next is 88.9 KRFC Fort Collins, where djs there picked twenty-three titles to share this past week. Indie 102.3 typically features up to a dozen Colorado artists each month. About twenty or so current year Colorado titles were aired this past week at other stations around the state – including this week’s featured station, KSJD.

The Colorado Playlist relies on donations. Please donate at the bottom of the page.

FEATURED STATION OF THE WEEK

KSJD is a community/public radio station based in Cortez, Colorado that serves the Four Corners region of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, including the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe and portions of the Navajo Nation.  The CP is aired Saturdays at 2PM
