Colorado Playlist – S11 EP46

AND THE NOMINEES ARE

Last year when I put this list out I had 80 titles up for consideration.  This year there are 120.  That’s a 50% increase in the number of titles that made it onto the list of nominations, and over a 50% increase in the number of titles submitted for consideration, which I lost track of.

If you’re unfamiliar with the titles on the list I do encourage you to do a little digging and discover something new.

NEWS NOTES & THOUGHTS

We’re just a few weeks away from our annual best of show, and the end (more or less) of our 11th year on the air around the state.  WOW!

Don’t forget to vote to KEEP or DELETE this week’s new music.

News broke out of Fort Collins over the past couple of weeks concerning sexual misconduct allegations against Scene magazine publisher Mike Mockler.  An article in the CSU Collegian highlighted the accusations, and provided room for comments – following a FaceBook post by Magic Cyclops (a Fort Collins entertainer) and others.  As of today, I have been unable to ascertain whether a December was distributed.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP45

ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF mobilizes the Colorado music and media communities to raise funds to assist musicians throughout the U.S. affected by natural disasters.

NEWS NOTES & THOUGHTS

Tuesday DEC 5 is Colorado Gives Day … there are some very worthy charities here in the state including many that are music focused.

No doubt that this week’s big news is the impending release of the first new album in eight years from the Railbenders.  If you heard the show, you got to hear the statewide debut of the first single, “Hard Road.”  The digital release date is set for Dec 19.

If you didn’t tune into the show, bummer .. the new Christmas single from Face Vocal Band is also not available to be embedded – and it’s a truly excellent re-imagining of Led Zepplin‘s “Misty Mountain Hop”  from their new album Bring On Christmas.



VIDEO PICKS OF 2017 

I went through all of the videos that I collected from this past year and put together what I consider my top 26 (yeah, I know) picks of the year.  The rest is up to you to decide.  We’ll narrow it all down in our year end Best Of edition.

Names of advance donor’s are automatically sent to the promoter of this event, Vera Ptak. Please bring identification for admittance. Questions? Call Vera: 303-241-0814


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Bands do not often rise to popularity or acclaim without some level of tribulation.  Beginning with the departure of the band’s guitarist in 2015 and the death of drummer Luke Mehrens’ fiance the same year, the trio has been pretty much hell bent on succeeding on their own terms.  The SIR Band’s new album, “So Cold,” comes out Dec 8th.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP43

ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF mobilizes the Colorado music and media communities to raise funds to assist musicians throughout the U.S. affected by natural disasters.

NEWS NOTES & THOUGHTS

Often when we talk about music in our area we’re talking about bands that do “original” music.  This weekend my girlfriend and I went to the theater – as in Denver’s Bug Theater – to see Disaster, a spoof on 70’s disaster flicks like Poseidon Adventure.  I grew up in little theater, and despite not having gone to see a play in nearly 20 years I fell in love all over again.

Our music AND radio communities in Colorado suffered a loss over the weekend.  Bill Barwick was one of the several superb instructors at the Ron Baile School of Broadcast in Denver in the late 70s.  He was also one of the top cowboy musicians in our scene and a regular at the Buckhorn Saloon, and “the Voice of the Western Channel.”  Bill passed away while attending the Western Music Association convention in Albuquerque, NM on November 10.  RIP old friend.  And thank you for helping me realize my dream of a career in broadcasting, and music.



VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

To say I’m in love with the new Big Head Todd & the Monsters album New World Arisin’ is just a shade of an understatement.  After following and playing their music on the air since about 1988 I have to say it’s their best yet – and certainly their most rockin.

NEWS NOTES and THOUGHTS

I lost a very good friend this past week; someone who was insurmountably influential in me building my business as a stage manager and main stage/event emcee.

Roger Armstrong was the executive director of CHUN (Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods).  Their main annual fundraising event was the CHUN People’s Fair, held the first weekend of June.

Roger, like other friends (and my late wife) lost his battle with cancer.  RIP my friend – I WILL always remember our friendship.  I’ve been looking at the picture of us on the wall outside my office for years – and it’s not coming down.

The PF is no longer produced by CHUN, but the spirit remains the same.  I intend to honor my friend at the event in June 2018.

My girlfriend and I took a drive to Colorado Springs on Sunday, to visit Garden of the Gods on what might be the last best Sunday to do so.  Hunger drove me to go into downtown CS to visit the new Oskar Blues location there.

Yes, they will have live music – no, it will not be every weekend.  The “music room” is set apart from the main restaurant in the “basement,” and is fashioned after a speakeasy.  The apparent intent, in talking with the GM, is that they’ll do music every once in awhile.  That, of course, may change.

The Oskar Blues Brewery 15th ANNIVERSARY party set for Nov 18th at the Oak Room in the Brewery in Longmong is SOLD OUT!

The COLORADO PLAYLIST has been added to rotation at KHEN in Salida — will air Sat 5-6PM and Tues 8-9PM.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Chris Daniels’ & the Kings latest is Blues with Horns, Vol 1.  It’s up for Grammy consideration, and is the first #1  charting record (Roots Music Report) in the band’s 30 year history.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP31

Rusty Young

Rusty Young is a Colorado music native.  As not only an original member of Poco, but its enduring remaining original member, he is enshrined in the Colorado Music Hall of Fame along with fellow Colorado music native George Grantham, with whom Rusty was a member of the 60’s Front Range based psych-rock band Boenzee Cryque.

Rusty just released his first non-Poco named solo album, Waitin’ for the Sun .. that I spotlighted a track from in this blog  a couple of weeks ago.  I will say I’m far more impressed with this solo effort than I was with the last Poco album that Rusty fronted.  Produced by Rusty with fellow Poco member and songwriter Jack Sundrud, Rusty’s voice stays as strong and true as you’d hope for someone in their 70s now, with well over 50 years of singing experience.

Rusty doesn’t leave the sound of Poco too far behind on this solo effort – songs like “Heaven Tonight” could have easily been a marquee track for Poco circa 1980s.  “Honey Bee” lies a little closer to something I might have expected from say Levon Helm stylistically – a bit more “dirt” than the polished SoCal country-rock that Poco is most well known for.

Waitin’ for the Sun won’t win Rusty any new millennial fans .. but rather, with his tired aching “rusty” voice it’s those of us old enough to remember him as a “kid” who will appreciate what’s left of this unsung country-rock legend, and the life he speaks of in this record.

Gotta send some love to the Coteries and Hey, Lady! (the B-52s Tribute) for an exemplary job at the final Wellington Downtown Summer Concert Series this year.  Folk fans are going to love the Coteries as they develop their fanbase regionally – and Hey, Lady! is already one of the region’s TOP 5 tribute bands … much love and thanks for a great show.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP27

Wolford Mountain – 6:40AM Saturday July 22

I went fishing this weekend.  I was very lucky – not with fishing – but with DEBUTs this week.

A.J. Fullerton and Face Vocal Band both shared new cuts that are not yet available generally.   Face Vocal Band will be appearing at the Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival in Dacono on August 5 in direct support of Cracker, and will be headlining Red Rocks on August 6 with Dearling.

The new album from the critically praised bluesman A.J. Fullerton will be out August 24.

This week’s MMMM has three new cuts from Dave & the Gin Mill Gypsies, Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams, and the Garrett Sayers Trio.  Make sure to listen and vote, pls.

I took NO music with me onto the water, nor did I play music at my campsite.  The only time I listened to music was in the car, during all 308 miles of the trip.  One thing that consistently stood out was the new EP from the Still Tide, which is sure to be among my favorites of 2017.

BTW .. the fishing at both Wolford Mountain Reservoir (outside of Kremmling), and Willow Creek Reservoir (outside of Grandy) was “EH.”  But – driving with the top down in the mountains (exceeding the speed limit of course) – listening to music – PRICELESS!
