VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Besides being a friend for many many years, Jon is a music icon in Fort Collins, CO.  He originally moved to FC in 1992 and was a founding member of Armchair Martian before teaming up with ALL vocalist Chad Price to form the alt-country-rock band Drag the River.  This is the first single off his upcoming new album due out in October.

 

CP S14 EP33 2020

Monday AUG 24 2020LATE!  Sorry.  Normally I’m done with this by 9AM. I got caught up researching djs around the state, at over 20 radio stations, who might play some Colorado music on their shows.  It’s been a busy couple of days. I’ve managed to document over 50 djs individually who have been known to program Colorado music from time to time.

NEW music this week in the MMMM = Sarah Christine, Chadzilla feat. Tanya Shylock, and Daniel Rodriguez.   The new release from Jayme Stone, Awake, hits the TOP 5 at CO radio this week while the Subdudes Lickskillet makes the TOP 5 at RootsMusicReport.com.

In the mood for live music?  There seems to be more and more of it taking places as we figure out the best way to do things.  Of course that does mean wearing masks when in public places and maintaining social distancing. The Fort Collins Musicians Association (FOCOMA) has figured out a way to celebrate over a decade of FOCOMX and NOCO music events.  I’m happy to support this  year’s FOCOMX – A Digital Retrospective.

CP S14 EP31 2020

Monday AUG 10 2020  DOWN TIME may have the most resilient release out this year – maintaining its TOP 5 weekly status, even as Nathaniel Rateliff’s latest falls from the TOP 5.  THREE of this week’s TOP 5 were recorded at Dockside Studios in Maurice, Louisiana.

Established in 1989, Dockside is known internationally for its illustrious string of albums by B.B. King, Sixteen Horsepower, and Sunny Landreth to name just a few.  Add Cary Morin, the Gasoline Lollipops and Johnny & the Mongrels to the list — all three of which make this week’s TOP 5.
