CP S15 EP07 2021

FEB 15 2021 – I added a new feature to the show a couple of weeks ago.  Every week I’ll feature one of the incredible stations that air the Colorado Playlist.  This week’s featured station is 88.7FM KRZA Alamosa, “connecting cultures along the Upper Rio Grande.”    Please take a minute to visit their website or drop a note thanking them for supporting Colorado music on their Facebook page.

Andy Frasco & the U.N. held on to the top spot in this week’s spins with Antonio Lopez flashing in at #2 on the heels of all the spins it got statewide this week as a result of being on Middle Class Rockstar with Andy Sydow.

Indie 102.3 hit the debut from Grand Alliance nice and hard this past week, and Wellington Bullings is still a favorite there.  And yes, Colorado stations love jazz – hence the stellar Scenes of Changery from Adam Bodine closing out this week’s TOP 5.

Are you a working musician in Colorado, or a soundperson, stage hand, etc employed pre-COVID but seriously struggling to pay for rent, utilities or food?

Rocky Mountain Music Relief can’t meet all your needs, but we can offer some help. There’s an application at the bottom of the page.

The Colorado Playlist is provided to member stations at no cost.  Your support is deeply appreciated.  Your support will help to keep the program on the air.


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 Andy Eppler.
