Picture by Chris K. from our most recent trip to Ouray.
Monday NOV 08, 2021 – When it’s early November and 75 degrees and sunny on a Sunday, that’s a top down drive kinda day. We took a long drive down through Garden of the Gods and up into the foothill, where we wound up at the Bucksnort Saloon in Pine for a set of live music. Not sure I’ll see it again in 2021.
So, call it 2022. At least for new releases. I spent part of the weekend filtering the “best” of Colorado as aired at the thirteen stations I survey weekly. Watch for the annual listener poll where you can lend your voice to the stations around the state.
I’m also not sure anything is going to bump Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, The Lumineers and The Velveteers from the top of the spins charts until next year. It’s the #4 and #5 spots where we’re likely to see a weekly contest. Animal Electricity and Kiltro are trending high enough in airplay to hold onto the fourth and fifth chart position for another couple of weeks.
