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.

DULCETTERRA, AN ONLINE INTERACTIVE MUSIC FESTIVAL, CONFERENCE AND SONGWRITING CAMP. Watch live on Monday, September 21st, 2020, from 12PM until 12AM Mountain Standard Time.

THIS WEEK ON YOUTUBE

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Jayme’s new album “Awake, Awake” is hitting CO radio, landing in the TOP 5 most played this past week.  Here’s the title track.

CP S14 EP27 2020

Monday July 13 2020 – I can’t recall a time when I was told I couldn’t play something that had already been released to the public via streaming sites or YouTube.  But that’s exactly what’s happening with some good friends of mine.

Bonnie and Taylor Sims are both Bonnie & the Clydes and a side project called Everybody Loves an Outlaw.  An ELAO song called “I See Red” hit twelve million spins on Spotify. Add in the 2+ million plays on YouTube and you have a verified hit.  BUT … radio cannot play it.  So I cannot play it.  BUT – I can share it.  Here only.  Not on the show.  Not until I’m told I can by the label.  In the meantime, here’s a new video from Bonnie & Taylor doing the hit “solo.”

Another new release is also sitting in my catalog that I can’t play on the radio, but can share here.  “All the Misery Money Can Buy” is the latest from my pals in Gasoline Lollipops.  It’s available wherever you get your music.  And it’s the best thing they’ve done to date.  The new album, recorded in Louisiana, is due out September 11.

TOP 40 COLORADO JUNE 2020

There are over 20 FM and LPFM (low power FM) non-commercial public/community and college stations in Colorado.  I’m able to track spins at 14 of those stations that have some kind of searchable online database or use Spinitron.

I tracked 90 releases (LP, EP or Single) for the month of June.  A few were advance singles that I got to share on CP network, or that stations got to share in advance of release dates in July.

Spinitron’s playlist generator was developed to benefit non-commercial public and educational terrestrial radio stations in the US. Record promoters, agents and artists are among those most likely to benefit from Spinitron’s detailed and advanced search function.

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.”
