MONDAY OCT 31 2022 – HAPPY HALLOWEEN for those who embrace such things (nah – I get scared enough just looking in the mirror).

Every Sunday I spend my day pulling spins from a dozen radio stations and listening to new releases I might want to include in upcoming shows. This past week I was surprised to learn of a significant and consequential Americana country-folk artist from Telluride, whose music haunted me immediately; Emily Scott Robinson. Her latest is already featured in Colorado 2022 on Spotify.

DON’T GO FAR! – I’ll be posting up the OCTOBER TOP 30 in a day or two. In the meantime – don’t forget to like AND follow the Colorado Playlist on FaceBook and Spotify.

CP S14 EP06 2020

Monday Feb 16, 2020 – This has been one of the most heartbreaking weeks I’ve experienced in our scene lately.  Death happens.  The two forms of death in our community that sting the most are suicide and homicide. We rarely understand either – the motivations behind taking a life, your own or someone else’s.  

This past week it was learned that Northern Colorado trumpet player Scott Sessions was found dead in the area of Old Flowers Road and Pingree Park Road in Bellevue, north of Fort Collins. The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is investigating his death as a homicide.  Officials have not released any further details.

Scott was a vibrant supporter of our scene.  The man’s positiveness was infectious.  His boundless positive energy not only showed up in his often scene stealing performances as part of the horn section in the rhythm and blues band the Movers & Shakers, but also when he would introduce bands at events such as FoCOMX …which he did last year when he introduced me and my band, GOATZ!

I didn’t know Scott well.  Our friendship was limited to the times we met at shows – either his band’s (which I have booked at two shows this summer), or some other local music event.  Truthfully, I will miss his engaging personality and infectious positive energy on stage and off.


I’m not known for doing interviews.  In fact, this interview with Don Strasburg from AEG Live is the first interview I’ve published since February 2019.  Interviews I’ve attempted since with Kenny Passarelli (Joe Walsh, Elton John) and Rick Roberts (Firefall) were scrapped due to operator error.


I’m happy to say I’ve known the Fort Collins’ native sisters collectively known as SHEL since they were backing up their Dad, Andrew, many years ago.  I’ve been able to see four incredible young women blossom into one of Colorado’s musical jewels – totally bright and refreshing.

Eva traveled to India to make the music video for Rainbow with a focus on raising much-needed funds and awareness for some of the world’s most vulnerable women, the widows of Vrindavan, India.

Being a widower, the boyfriend of a widow and the friend of several widows and widowers, I feel some empathy for the plight of these women, who are ostracized from their families and society – becoming “untouchables” in Indian society; forced into an ascetic existence with no one but themselves to rely on financially or socially.  Learn More

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

CP S12 EP36 2018

 Monday Sept 24, 2018 … It has been a pretty busy week in the scene here lately …

The Burroughs announced they have a new video coming out on September 29, called “Step Into the Music.”  It was done in partnership and collaboration with the Colorado based non-profit organization Sustain Music & Nature.  Here’s the video explaining who they are and what they do.  Look for the video for “Step Into the Music” to appear here (hopefully) next week.  I’ll debut the song in EP37 (SPT 22-28) of the show

The Fort Collins’ sisters SHEL sent out a a VERY EXCITING announcement.  They will be the closing night act for the 2018 Women Sports Film Festival in San Francisco at the end of the month.  Check out the accolades in this promo video!

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


Andy Palmer has been one of the brightest highlights of the music scene in our region the past several years, going back to the breakout single “Grrrr,” from his debut “Sometime Around,” that dropped Sept 21 2011 – seven years ago.

Recently, Andy announced an indefinite hiatus from music activities to refocus on other endeavors and his family.  His exit from the scene is amplified by some of the starkest lyrics and imagery in his accomplished and highly praised body of work, in the video for “The Switch,” the title track from his most recent album that came out in May 2017.

As usual in Andy’s music, he leaves us with a hopeful feeling, despite being weighted down by existential burdens in life.  Let’s hope we get to hear more from Andy in the future.  Good luck and good living my friend.


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.
