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.

UGH .. yes, I am saying UGH to this Monday morning. Late night last night .. hot today and I’m doing triple duty on the show, renovating my house for sale and getting ready to move … UGH .. I could use a few 70 degree days to keep me cool.

Hi gang. I just returned from vacation so this list is shorter as previous months. I’ll be in full power mode by the end of October. Enjoy. ALSO – WordPress changed how I do things so I need to relearn. UGH!

There are over 20 FM and LPFM (low power FM) non-commercial public/community and college stations in Colorado.  I’m able to track spins at 14 of those stations that have some kind of searchable online database or use Spinitron.

I tracked 175 releases (LP, EP or Single) for the month of September.  A few were advance singles that I got to share on CP network, or that stations got to share in advance of release dates in July.

Spinitron’s playlist generator was developed to benefit non-commercial public and educational terrestrial radio stations in the US. Record promoters, agents and artists are among those most likely to benefit from Spinitron’s advanced search function.

CP S12 EP40 2018

 Monday Oct 22 2018 … Here in about another two weeks we enter the 2019 release year – which will include any NEW releases submitted for airplay after Nov 1.

2018 has been a rather amazing year.  Currently in the CP song catalog for 2018 there are over 390 song titles … from over 100 LPs alone – not including EPs and single releases.

So far this year I’ve seen more singles released than at any time I’ve done this show over the paste 12 years.  This weekend I spoke with the owners of one of our prestigious studios.  They affirmed they’ve seen more singles being produced than at any time they could recall.

Basically, it’s going to make for an interesting end of year “Best Of.”

Congratulations to Randall Frazier and Elisa Canali.  Randall is the long time production manager and talent buyer for Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox as well as a longtime label owner (Helmut Room), sound and recording engineer, producer, tour manager and musician in the scene.  Randall and Elisa met when Randall took her on as an intern learning sound.  She is now Randall’s assistant and soon to be legally married life partner.  Much love to both …

Ophelia’s has also announced they’re launching a new label based on live recordings that Randall will produce at the venue.  The launch is set for early 2019.

The Colorado Music Hall of Fame class for 2018 has been announced.  It’s a night dedicated to AEG’s Chuck Morris, who got started promoting shows in Boulder in the late 60s.  Also being inducted – 97.3FM KBCO, a pioneering station with air talent that reaches back into the 70s and 80s.

The show will include performances by Amos Lee, Leo KottkeTodd Park Mohr & Brian Nevin (Big Head Todd & the Monsters), Isaac Slade & Ben Wysocki (the Fray), Bill Nershi and members of the String Cheese Incident, Drew Emmit & Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon) and the Lumineers.  The house backing band for the show is Chris Daniels & the Kings.  Governor Hickenlooper will be hosting the roast of Chuck Morris.  Dec 3 2018 – The Paramount Theater.

It shouldn’t be a secret and there’s little doubt that Gregory Alan Isakov is a perennial BEST OF Colorado artist – with a string of exceptional releases, and headlining slots at Red Rocks.  Gregory is in a class of his own in our scene.  This is from his new album Evening Machines.


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.
