The Colorado Sound got it’s start on KRFC (Fort Collins) in 2006. In 2010 it went independent. In 2016 the name was picked up by KUNC as the branding for the new 105.5 The Colorado Sound – and I changed the name of the show to Chris K’s Colorado Playlist.
Today, it is the most widely distributed and heard locally produced independent music program in the state.
Producer and host Chris K., aka “goat,” is no stranger to Colorado music and radio. He has been on the air in Northern Colorado off and on since 1977, with on-air stints at KFKA-AM (AC), KUAD (CHR/AC), KSQI (AOR/AAA), KCSU (Americana & Jazz), KIMN (CHR/Hot AC), KPAW (classic rock), and KGLL (country).
Chris’ articles, essays, criticisms, reviews, and editorials have appeared online and in local, regional and national music and radio publications like Scene Magazine, FMQB, the Album Network, GodsofMusic.com, Makeastar.com, C0nsensus.com, and the Colorado Music Buzz.
Chris K. has been a character in the music scene along the Front Range of Colorado in five decades now … and despite the grass he chews on regularly, he shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Please support the stations that support Colorado music. What we have here is special in the nation. Terrestrial radio is STILL the front-line of how we discover music. It’s that important that we support our friends who bring this show to you.
FUNDING: Please donate to the cause. The stations that air this program do not pay for it. Unlike NPR programming which costs the station A LOT, this show is provided for free on the condition that I can monetize it myself. DONATE HERE
