CP S12 EP45 2018

Monday Nov 26, 2018 – Did you eat too much?  Over the weekend since last Thursday I read we gain over 2lbs at this time of year. I’m still in recovery mode myself. Best way I know of mitigating that is to go out and experience all that Colorado has to offer at this time of year – including, but not exclusively, Colorado music.  There are some great shows coming up over the next few weeks.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

As I scoured the inter-webs this past few weeks I came across a review of a “new” player in the scene = Davey Daydream.  He’s not really new.  He moved here to study at CU Boulder from NJ in 2008.  Formerly a bass player and lead singer in bands that did everything from straight ahead pop-punk to experimental prog-rock and a coffee shop singer songwriter, he’s included DJing and producing with elements of EDM and Hip-hop into his repertoire.    A breakout show in Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins could set Davey up as an artist to watch for in 2019 and beyond.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen  and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.

Don’t forget to let me know if there’s something I should be playing on the show.  I scour Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud and Bandcamp to find you the freshest new music from around the state – hope you’ll help out by voting to KEEP or DELETE the new music shares in the MMMM each week.

CP S12 EP44 2018

 Monday Nov 19, 2018 – This is my pre-Thanksgiving post.  As my girlfriend and I sat and watched news coverage of the California fires this past week, I couldn’t help but think about our own state and just how easily it would be for that to happen to us here.  Natural disasters destroy everything.

One of the reasons we launched Rocky Mountain Music Relief a year ago was so that when natural disasters affect the musicians in our own region we’d have a way to help out.   While our mission statement declares that we exist to help out musicians in the Rocky Mountain region (Colorado mostly) – I hope we can all contribute to helping those in need in California.

I’ll have big news coming in Q1 2019, but let me tease you a bit.  Next year when I thank stations for airing this program there will very likely be one more.  KFFR (Winter Park) has acknowledged they love the show and want to air it.  They’re hoping for early 2019.  Keep your fingers crossed.  No deal is a done deal until the show is added and aired.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Collins), KJAC (Greeley/Front Range), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio/Durango), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KZYR (Vail) and KHEN (Salida).

These stations reach out across 24FM frequencies in the state – bringing Colorado music to their  listeners 52 hours a week.  I hope you’ll support them with your financial contribution.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

The environment is on everyone’s mind.  “Nature’s Way” was originally written, recorded and released by the band Spirit in 1969. Songwriter Randy California recorded several versions of the song over the years, quipping that he never quite got it right.  Now, it’s Firefall’s turn.  Bassist Mark Andes an original member of Spirit, sings lead and is joined by  featured guests Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles and John McFee of the Doobie Brothers.

I expect a new album from Firefall in the coming months.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

Well, YouTube wins again.  I can always find songs there I can’t find on Spotify.  Either way, enjoy this week’s playlist.

HAPPY VETERANS DAY
NEVER FORGET 

As we approach the midway point of November, it seems that site traffic has hit a hard roadblock of sorts. I hope you’ll remember to stop by and check out the new music in the MMMM and vote to KEEP or DELETE.

As this is the time of the year to give thanks – I cannot give enough to the stations and listeners who make this show possible.  I would love to meet you … and with that I’ll be appearing with my long time musical partner Chris Jackowski and local teenage fiddle phenom Jackson Earles at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins on NOV 17, and with my full electric band lineup at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on NOV 24.  I hope you can come by so I can thank you in person for your support.

NEW this week YouTube Colorado Playlist of all the tracks from this week’s episode .. which includes new MMMM tracks from Foxfeather, AMZYKing Eddie, AMZY, Kid Reverie, Joe Johnson, and Tnertle.

Make sure you follow me on Spotify to find out what new artists I might be checking out.  This week’s Spotify playlist is short some fine tracks from SUCH, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Zephyr and Alpha Centauri

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Speaking of Zephyr — very very happy that they along with original lead guitarist Tommy Bolin will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2019.

Also being inducted is the truly legendary Freddie-Henchi Band.  Both Zephyr and the Freddi-Henchi Band were signed early on their careers in the late 60s, but wound up being more regionally famous as time went on;   Zephyr until Candy’s death in 1984, and the FHB until the mid to late 80s when various life issues (drugs, booze, etc) decimated the band.

FHB would re-emerge in the mid 90s for a brief run.  Freddi “Love” Gowdy appears with Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy today.
