CP S15 EP23 2021

Monday June 7, 2021 — WOW … what a weekend! Lightning, not COVID, was the reason for some outdoor shows being delayed or postponed. FLOBOTS show at Levitt Pavilion was one that had to pushed back to July 2 because of severe lighting in Denver, while the Greeley Blues Jam kicked off the summer season with Friday Fest featuring some of the best of Colorado’s blues artists and bands. Kudos to everyone for a great weekend to kick off the summer season.

NEW MUSIC COMING from Chris Daniels with Hazel Miller, Dressy Bessy and Nathaniel Rateliff so be listening to the show in the coming week or two for those and others.

CP S15 EP21 2021

Monday May 24, 2021 – In a recent interview, Erin Roberts aka Porlolo, stated “I write and record songs I know aren’t good for the radio.” There’s only one problem with that statement: she’s rockin’ Colorado independent public and college radio right now, with significant spins from Indie 102.3 and 105.5 The Colorado Sound + The Colorado Playlist’s statewide network. Check out the rest of the weekly TOP 5 below.

There’s a new Colorado focused hip-hop show about to hit Salida’s KHEN. Salida-based artists Mark and Amber Cano are not only expecting a baby in September, they will be hosting a new show there that Mark says will focus on “…Colorado rap, hip hop and RnB artists.”

Monday May 17, 2021 – You know how you take a few days off, but it takes twice as many days to actually catch up? Yep … Last week’s visits included KLZR Westcliffe and KHEN Salida. The week prior included a run out to Durango and a visit with KRZA Alamosa.

As I’ve made my way around the state the past month, the conversations I had mostly were about Colorado music and how to build audience. Locally produced non-comms are committed to presenting music from our state. If you’re a Colorado based band or musician reach out to them and find the venues and events in our smaller cities and towns that crave live music. There is plenty of opportunity in our state.

To find out how you can get your music into the hands of independent programmers around the state, email rockymountainmusicnetwork@gmail.com.

CP S15 EP19 2021

Monday May 10, 2021 – Once again, I’m writing early… I’m off visiting Westcliff and Salida this week. This week’s visits include KLZR Westcliffe where you can hear the show Sundays from 2-4PM and KHEN Salida, which airs the show Saturdays from 5-7PM.

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 Mark Oblinger.

TOP FIVE WK END MAY 08 2021

WEST SIDE JOE & THE MEN OF SOUL lead a wholesale change in this week’s TOP FIVE spins, among the thirteen stations surveyed from May 2 through May 8. Their single “Vacate My Heart” is popular too on Spotify with over 11,000 spins. The link is to their Bandcamp page.

The new singles from Cole Scheifele (pronounced “shife-lee”) are at #2 thanks to being featured this month on Indie 102.3. I would imagine other Colorado radio DJs liking Cole, who instantly falls in alongside Gregory Alan Isakov and the introspective sensitive side of Nathaniel Rateliff. His link goes to his artist YouTube page instead of the album, which isn’t due out until July.

CP S15 EP13 2021

Monday March 29, 2021 – It’s been estimated that there are over fourteen thousand songwriters in Colorado who are registered with one of the top three performance rights organizations (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC). That is all to say there is a LOT of music in our state.

Over the past 30 days I tracked radio airplay for over two hundred individual titles, singles, EP or LP. I will be publishing the March TOP 30 in a few days. Of the over two hundred titles I tracked airplay for, ninety received at least one play at one of the thirteen stations I monitor weekly.

Not much movement in the weekly TOP 5 with Nathaniel Rateliff and A.J. Fullerton looking more and more like the TOP 2 albums leading into the spring. In the meantime, A.J. Fullerton is sitting at #1 in Colorado album titles this week at RootsMusicReport.com.

Featured station of the week = Four Corners Radio, KSJD (Cortez)
