CP S15 EP19 2021

Monday May 10, 2021 – Once again, I’m writing early… I’m off visiting Westcliff and Salida this week. This week’s visits include KLZR Westcliffe where you can hear the show Sundays from 2-4PM and KHEN Salida, which airs the show Saturdays from 5-7PM.

Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by  Andy Sydow.  Every week or so I feature a 7 to 8 minute segment featuring  a conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry personalities.  This week’s guest is Mark Oblinger.

TOP FIVE WK END MAY 08 2021

WEST SIDE JOE & THE MEN OF SOUL lead a wholesale change in this week’s TOP FIVE spins, among the thirteen stations surveyed from May 2 through May 8. Their single “Vacate My Heart” is popular too on Spotify with over 11,000 spins. The link is to their Bandcamp page.

The new singles from Cole Scheifele (pronounced “shife-lee”) are at #2 thanks to being featured this month on Indie 102.3. I would imagine other Colorado radio DJs liking Cole, who instantly falls in alongside Gregory Alan Isakov and the introspective sensitive side of Nathaniel Rateliff. His link goes to his artist YouTube page instead of the album, which isn’t due out until July.

  1. WEST SIDE JOE & THE MEN OF SOULKeep On Climbin’ LP (Apr-21)
  2. COLE SCHEIFELEThe Hideaways LP (due out Jul-21)
  3. LEFTOVER SALMONBrand New Good Old Days LP (Mar-21)
  4. FLOBOTS Roshni SINGLE (Apr-21)
  5. DISCOMFORT CREATUREDiscomfort Creature LP (Apr-21)

TOP 5 and TOP 30 charts are pulled from published spins at 13 Colorado non-profit community/public and college radio stations.  Designed to benefit non-commercial public and college radio stations, record promoters and artists are among those most likely to benefit from the detailed search function.

Currently 11 Colorado radio stations utilize Spinitron.

COLORADO TOP 30 APRIL 2021

May 04, 2021 – Hope you don’t mind me being a few days late with this. I have been taking some time to visit some of the wonderful cities and towns around our state, including Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Durango and Alamosa, with Westcliff still to come next week.

We have an abundance of local non-commercial not-for-profit radio stations around the state, nearly all of which at one time or another in any given week air Colorado-based music; many along with the Colorado Playlist.

I track thirteen of the state’s twenty plus public, community and college radio stations, eleven via Spinitron. Tracking is not an exact science. Not every dj at every station publishes a playlist, and not every station utilizes the automatic playlist generator provided by Spinitron.

Of the over 200 titles dating back to April 2020 that I currently track, eighty titles received at least one verifiable spin in April.

To find out how you can get your music in the hands of djs at stations around the state, email rockymountainmusicnetwork@gmail.com.

Spinitron Designed to benefit non-commercial public and college radio stations. Record promoters and artists are among those most likely to benefit from the detailed search function. Currently 11 Colorado radio stations utilize Spinitron.

Monday May 03, 2021 – Once again, I’m writing early, because I attended the Tico Time RV Resort Bluegrass Festival this weekend. Next up is the Tico Time RV Resort Reggae Festival May 13-15.

No TOP FIVE this morning. As soon as I walk in tonight I’ll sit down and build the APRIL TOP 30. Should have it up in a day or two. Of course, since I’m actually writing on Thursday, “today/tonight” is actually four days away. Anyway …
