MONDAY MAY 22, 2023 – On the road. Like, what else is new – right? Rocky Mountain Music Network / The Colorado Playlist and Clear Vistas Photography are moving to Grand Junction over the next couple of months. We’re in house buying mode now.


Spin data pulled from the Colorado Playlist105.5 The Colorado SoundIndie 102.388.9 KRFC  and ten other stations that use playlist generator Spinitron, offering search functions for artists and agents to track airplay.



I designed the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM) as a way for you to let me know what you think of new music emerging from around the state. Results enter into which cuts stay in rotation, and which cuts make the final “best of” list.
