If you missed it, here’s the entire interview with Eddie Roberts, a member of the band The New Mastersounds from England, a Colfax Ave resident the past four years, and a founding partner in the new Denver label Color Red. Run time = 20 minutes.
Coming up in a future episode, Colorado Music Hall of Fame inductee as a member of Firefall – Rick Roberts joins me. Rick and former Zephyr guitarist Jock Bartley formed Firefall in 1974. Rick was also the voice of the Flying Burrito Brothers from 1970 to 1972 and recorded two albums under his own name, before forming Firefall.
New music hit this week from my own band, GOATZ! Veronique Van Pelt, and Drew Ballantyne. Fortunately, it was a light week because I still have releases to get to from Amy and the Peace Pipes, Bison Bone and others.
Last week’s MMMM was off the charts .. we set a new five year record for most visits and most views and most votes.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
I overheard someone say recently that he wished more bands would do protest songs. Intuit is a violin / cello driven Rocky Mountain acoustic groove-rock band with roots in a diverse range of musical styles. They’re also a bit political – or at least socially conscious.
