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.

105.5 The Colorado Sound & the Colorado Playlist Present:

Brent Cowles w/ special guests Strange Americans at the Bluebird Theater (Denver) Fri, Dec 14

Gasoline Lollipops with The Grant Farm at The Fox Theatre (Boulder) New Years Eve, Monday, Dec 31

Slim Cessna’s Auto Club – 3 nights! – Dec 28, 29, 31 – Globe Hall

Trout Steak Revival 2 shows…
Fri, Nov 30 at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom (Denver)
Sat, Dec 1 at the Aggie Theatre (Fort Collins)

The Railbenders at The Bluebird Theater (Denver), Friday, Dec 21


Join me for 3 more shows with my band in 2018
GOATZ! acoustic – 3 shows…
Sat, Dec 8 at Coal Mine Ave Brewing (Littleton)
Sun, Dec 9 at the Black Buzzard (Denver)
Fri, Dec 14 TRIO at City Star Brewing (Berthoud)

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


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.


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.

Don’t forget to let me know if there’s something I should be playing on the show.  I scour Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud and Bandcamp to find you the freshest new music from around the state – hope you’ll help out by voting to KEEP or DELETE the new music shares in the MMMM each week.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP45 DEC 2016

I don’t often get a chance to go out for an entire day to see a batch of new up and coming bands – unless I’m working the event.  Sunday I spent the day at Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins to see friends, and to immerse myself in seven hours of music from 10 bands, only three of which I knew anything about.

The event was the annual Scene Magazine “Fresh Talent Showcase,” a judged event that awarded the winner time in a recording studio, along with a pro grade photo shoot, a pro level consulting session with Yellowbright, and a slot on the Scene Magazine stage at the 2017 Arise Festival in Loveland next August.

Write Minded took home the top prize, but all of the bands brought game … Congrats to everyone who participated.

Colorado Music History – Warren Zevon and Boulder

Trusted Ear Scene Report with Dave Herrera


The Colorado Playlist is funded by the contributions of individual donations, and business sponsorship.  Occasionally, a sponsorship opportunity comes up.

Now seeking sponsorship of the “In Colorado Music History” segment of the show.  “In Colorado Music History” airs at the top of each hour of the show.  A segment is also featured each week here.

Entering its 11th year, Chris K’s Colorado Playlist is heard on KJAC (Northern Front Range and Steamboat Springs), KRFC (NoCO), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KDNK (Carbondale, Aspen, Glenwood Springs, Idaho Springs), KZYR (Vail, Edwards), KOTO (Telluride,Hudson), KSUT (Durango, Pagosa Springs) and KLZR (Westcliffe)

For more sponsorship information, contact me at chriskmusic@gmail.com or call me at (720) 381-6455.


besides writing and performing original music both as the leader of the Patti Fiasco, and as part of the country-folk duo Whipporwill, Alysia Kraft is not above giving us her own personal interpretations of other songwriters’ songs.


I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.

It’s not a competition.  It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week.
