CP S13 EP01 2019 – BEST OF 2018

Monday Dec 31, 2018 – HAPPY NEW YEAR.  I was so excited for this year’s BEST OF I jumped the gun a week in labeling the show.  I also got confused.  The show originated in 2006, making 2019 the 14th season of the show.  So I’m a year behind that way. This is what you get when you’re “old.”  CRS syndrome. Oh well.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Colllins), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KHEN (Salida), KZYR (Vail), and KJAC (Greeley) for airing the Colorado Playlist.  Because of them, the show is heard on 24FM frequencies around the state, 52 hours a week.  There’s a “letter of intent” for another mountain town station to pick up the show before April.

Below you’ll find the playlist for The Best of 2018.  Twenty-five titles made the cut, counting the overall TOP 10 and the TOP 10 Fan/Listener Poll selections and TOP 5 Fan/Listener Videos of 2018 selections.   It was an amazing year.  Follow the links to see this year’s rankings and to listen to the LP/EP.

CP S12 EP45 2018

Monday Nov 26, 2018 – Did you eat too much?  Over the weekend since last Thursday I read we gain over 2lbs at this time of year. I’m still in recovery mode myself. Best way I know of mitigating that is to go out and experience all that Colorado has to offer at this time of year – including, but not exclusively, Colorado music.  There are some great shows coming up over the next few weeks.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

As I scoured the inter-webs this past few weeks I came across a review of a “new” player in the scene = Davey Daydream.  He’s not really new.  He moved here to study at CU Boulder from NJ in 2008.  Formerly a bass player and lead singer in bands that did everything from straight ahead pop-punk to experimental prog-rock and a coffee shop singer songwriter, he’s included DJing and producing with elements of EDM and Hip-hop into his repertoire.    A breakout show in Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins could set Davey up as an artist to watch for in 2019 and beyond.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Many people who live in our area today may not remember that Jill Sobule grew up in Denver in the 60s and 70s, and attended CU in Boulder.  It was only after she left the area to pursue music professionally that she had a hit in the 90s’ with I Kissed A Girl (no, not the more recent hit by the same name).  Since then, Jill has become known internationally as an exceptional folk artist — though her newest hit may not actually show her in that light.
