CP S12 EP31 2018

I love summers.  Anyone who is in the music industry .. and I suspect many many thousands who are not employed in the music industry … enjoys all the musical activity that takes place on stages large and small … from downtown – small town – events with strictly “local” bands to the biggest stages with the biggest names in the county.  And, we are in the thick of it.

Bohemian Nights at New West Fest is logged for 2018. As is usual for this annual event that is now moving towards 15 years old, many tens of thousands showed up to enjoy some 80 bands … over 99% of which were from Colorado.  It was a sunny hot weekend, and yes, after two years of weather miscues, the Subdudes finally managed to entertain us with a full Sunday start set.

I finished the Wellington Main Street Summer Concert Series in a thunder and hail storm this weekend.  And my band, GOATZ!, played in the rain for the 8th annual Fort Collins Peach Festival.

There are still many many more events to attend and to be a part of by the time I actually get to vacation in mid-September.

Congratulations to Ryan Chrys (Ryan Chrys and the Roughcuts) who was voted “Entertainer of the year” by the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame.  He was also nominated “Outlaw Group, 2018” by the Ameripolitan Music Awards

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


  • 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins has moved the show from Saturday night at 8PM to Thursday mornings from 6-8AM.
  • KSUT Ignacio/Durango has added HR1 of the show and moved the time from 7PM Saturday nights to 10PM-12AM Saturday nights


I had originally hoped to share this new video with you last week … a publishing reset and too many festival days got in my way.


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.

NOTE:  In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file on Soundcloud, BandCamp, Reverbnation or YouTube.

The Colorado Sound S7/EP05 Feb 2013 + Video of the Week.

chris k july 2010Every week I receive a fairly large amount of new music to evaluate for the show.  I’d say most of what I get makes it on-air at least once.  I don’t know if that’s because I’m only receiving the cream of the crop, or if we’ve just become that good in Colorado.  I like to think it’s a bit of both.

I’m often found cruising Facebook, scanning for items of information I can use in the news and notes section of the show, or just information about artists in general to talk about.  Recently, I saw a post for a show that got my attention, not because of the headliner, but because I mistook the message and thought a different band was having a cd release party… whereupon I immediately contacted that band about their new cd.  Of course, to my chagrin, I discovered I had made a mistake.  I was subsequently turned onto a new artist … whose cd release party it really was … and was told that she’d done very well on YouTube, with 24,081 subscribers and 2,399,645 video views, and that she sells out the rare show she does locally.  So, with that background – may I please introduce to you Miss Elise Lieberth with our video of the week selection.
