Monday MARCH 14, 2022 – Sixty-nine Colorado current year releases (March 2021 to March 2022) got some airtime on at least fifteen (there are a handful I don’t track) Colorado community and college radio stations this past week. That’s sixty-nine out of the two hundred that are currently on my tracking sheet. So, is that good or bad?
As things go, it’s pretty good. One station, where I’m proud to call home on Saturday mornings the past six years – 105.5 The Colorado Sound – typically spins thirty to thirty-two current Colorado titles a week at least once; NOT including what I play on the Colorado Playlist on Saturday (6AM) and Sunday (6PM).
Next is 88.9 KRFC Fort Collins, where djs there picked twenty-three titles to share this past week. Indie 102.3 typically features up to a dozen Colorado artists each month. About twenty or so current year Colorado titles were aired this past week at other stations around the state – including this week’s featured station, KSJD.
The Colorado Playlist relies on donations. Please donate at the bottom of the page.
