The Colorado Playlist – Expressly and explicitly Colorado from the 60s to Today – From the biggest hits by the biggest hitmakers and award winners in Colorado music history to some some of the freshest new music emerging from the Centennial State.
Monday APRIL 18, 2022 – April. April is a big month in my life it seems. I was conceived in April. I was discharged from the USAF in April. It was April when I landed in Roswell, New Mexico, where I lasted four months before the heat got to me and I re-landed in Northern Colorado with a blown engine; but that’s another story. In April 2006 I started the Colorado Playlist.
Thank you for listening all these years.
Not much new in the TOP 5 this week, with only JYEMO CLUB feat the Reminders moving up to #5. The rest stays the same with the Lumineers and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats holding steady at 1 and 2.
New music in the MMMM this week from Bolonium, who say “the world is full of Bolonium,” a play on the old saying that the world is full of bologna – and if you have to ask what that is… well. I will say it’s one of the more “original” (unique / outside-of-the-box) songs I’ve played lately – let me know what you think = I like it, MEH it’s ok, or I don’t like it – below.
Byron Parker is mostly well known in Denver for his work in the noise-rock trio Accordion Crimes – check out his latest called Holy Smokes – part of a three song EP he just put out. Thanks to Kramies for turning me onto Byron’s new music.
Jessica Sonner shows up this week with a new single. She does that about once a year it seems.
Thanks to Starr’s Guitars, LiveMusicColorado.com and Spinitron for their promotional and financial support of the show. The Colorado Playlist is provided free of charge to the stations that broadcast it. It relies on donations. Please donate. It does help to defray the costs in maintaining the show.
