CP S14 EP19 2020

Monday May 18, 2020 – WHEW … I can’t get my head around a summer with no live music events.  Every day brings more announcements of cancellations and venue closures from around the state.  Summer is a time when most bands get to play to new audiences, and new audiences get to experience new bands and old favorites.

Typically, recorded music is instrumental in getting people excited to see their favorite acts perform live at summer municipal events.  Performance revenue along with merch sales provides most of the money a band uses to record new music. Which leads me to wonder how much new music will be recorded this year.

The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce announced the cancellation of Jazz Festival, Solshine, Winter Park Uncorked, High Note Thursdays, Fitness in the Park, the Run for Independence, the 4th of July celebration, the Switchback concert and Tequila and Tacos.

The City of Dacono announced the cancellation of the 13th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival for 2020.

Last week I reported on the closing of Live at Jacks in downtown Denver.  On Friday May 15, 3 Kings Tavern on South Broadway in Denver announced it was closing permanently, unable to pay the rent after a solid 14 year run.  Announcing the closure on Instagram, the owners posted “The spirit of Kings will never die.”

COLORADO’S TOP 40 – RIGHT NOW

Friday May 15, 2020 – WOW.  I can’t recall the last time I pulled a statewide radio airplay chart of Colorado titles, played at Colorado non-comm stations.  I know it’s been at least five or six years – and maybe longer.

Normally, I track Roots Music Report.  Only a couple of Colorado stations report to RMR, along with several US, European and Internet stations.  RMR also doesn’t filter for current year releases.  A look at their weekly spins chart shows titles that are a few years old. So, when we look at their spins, we’re getting a more global look at what CO releases are getting played.

There are over 20 non-commercial public/community & college radio stations in our state.  Twelve of those stations use playlist generator Spinitron.  They include KAFM (Grand Junction), KBUT (Crested Butte), KCSU (Fort Collins), KDNK (Carbondale), KDUR (Durango), KFFR (Winter Park), KMSA (Grand Junction), KOTO (Telluride), KRFC (Fort Collins), KRZA (Alamosa-Taos), KSJD (Mancos) and KVNF (Paonia).

    • Airplay charted April 13-May 14 2020.
    • All releases May 2019-April 2020.
