CP S15:40 2021

Monday Oct 04, 2021 – We’re about a month away from the start of the 2022 new release year. What are some of your favorite songs so far since last November? What are some of your favorite full length LPs or EPs? Comment to let me know.

You can find 100 of the TOP currents at CP 2021 on Spotify. That playlist changes somewhat regularly, but will lock down on or about November 4th.

Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller had a great run in the TOP 5 the past several weeks and are sure to find themselves among the TOP 20 for year’s end based on spins around the state.

The Lumineers new album won’t officially be released until early in 2022, but the new single is receiving copious amounts of airplay at both Indie 102.3 and 105.5 The Colorado Sound, landing them at #1 this week.

Expect Kiltro to reign the TOP 5 for November, along with the Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats and the Velveteers, both of whom have new albums dropping in October and November respectively. Nightmare Daydream from the Velveteers will drop on Oct 8.

Not all charts are the same. The TOP 5 Colorado album spins at Roots Music Report looks a lot different than the TOP 5 here, where the Night Hawks have run up to the #1 spot and Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller fall to #5 .. Reverend Freakchild, Leftover Salmon and Eddie Turner round out their TOP 5 this week.

CP S15 EP22 2021

Monday May 31, 2021 – Memorial Day 2021 – the unofficial kickoff to the summer vacation season and outdoor live music season, and there’s a lot of that going on right now. Welcome to post-COVID 2021. Of course that doesn’t mean all things are rosy in the world of live music. Please check your local listings.

No major changes in this week’s TOP 5 with just some repositioning and the addition of punk band Discomfort Creature entering due to high spins from Indie 102.3 last week.

In this week’s MMMM: Younger Colorado music fans likely will not know who Eddie “Devil Boy” Turner is. If you were around Colorado in the late 70s and early 80s you might remember Eddie from his days as the lead guitarist for the band Zephyr before Candy Givens died in January 1984.

Eddie disappeared from the scene after Candy died, showing up briefly in Ron Miles Electric Band before being resurrected in 1995 as lead guitarist on five Otis Taylor albums.

Produced by legendary Colorado-born bassist, songwriter and producer Kenny Passarelli (Barnstorm, Elton John) Change In Me is Eddie’s fourth solo album since 2005’s Rise Again which won him the 2006 Blues Foundation Award for Best New Artist Debut.
