MONDAY JUNE 15 2020 – A friend asked “What do you consider “Colorado Music?” That’s a great question.
The Colorado Playlist is expressly and explicitly Colorado from the sixties to today: from the biggest hits by the biggest hit-makers and award winners to some of the freshest new music emerging from around the state.
Colorado musicians can include those who were born here and moved away at some point, to those who moved here. It may include those who play the smallest of venues around our state on a regular basis to those who rarely appear at all. Basically anything I can connect musically to our state.
And while there is no style of music that does not exist in Colorado, there are some styles of music you won’t hear on this program – but that I might include on my Spotify Playlist or my YouTube collection.
Please help Rocky Mountain Music Relief feed musicians. Donations of $15 or more receive a #COmusic COVID mask as a thank you. Proceeds will benefit food needy musicians and their families. Please make sure to provide your address so we can mail your mask. If you want more than one do a larger donation and mention how many you want in your PayPal donation slip.
