CP S15 EP14 2021

Monday APRIL 05, 2021 – WOW! Nathaniel Rateliff got knocked off of his perch at #1, falling to #5. A.J. Fullerton now owns the top spot across the state, and among Colorado releases at RootsMusicReport.com. I would expect the TOP 5 to look different next week when Indie 102.3 stops featuring Lady Gang and Ellsworth.

Last minute note: KRZA (Alamosa) is now airing both hours of the Colorado Playlist, from 2 to 4 pm on Monday.

Coming to EP15 = new music from American Morrisey, Jason Abbott, Darryl Purpose, Big Head Todd and the Monsters

THIS WEEK ON YOUTUBE

CP S15 EP12 2021

MONDAY MARCH 22, 2021 – In Colorado music history — that’s something you hear at the top of each hour of the show. This week it was Elton John’s Philadelphia Freedom that was highlighted in HR1.

Elton was a regular at Caribou Ranch Recording Studio in the early 70s. His 4th #1 hit was written during an eight day recording session for Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy, but did not appear on that album.

Instead, it appears on his 1977 Greatest Hits album. He wrote the song for Billie Jean King while she and her team, the Philadelphia Freedoms, were in Denver for a tennis league playoff series. More at Colorado Music Experience.

You ever try to learn something new on the fly? WordPress decided to get rid of the classic editor I’ve been using for 12 years. LMAO. This hurts a little, since I’ve resisted using the newer format in favor of what I’ve known. Oh well.

Let’s try something new this week. Instead of a poll asking if you like a song or not, beginning this week the question will be, “What’s Your Favorite This Week?” See following the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM).

New music this week from Pie Lombardi, Wheelchair Sportscamp, Aaron Bibelhauser & FY5, and Kind Dub f. Sarah Joelle.
