Go to these Concerts

hello all, tis good to be back after another couple of weeks off. This past Monday (June 25th) I decided to inform the county about artists that will be appearing in the Gunnison Valley and also the wider state of Colorado in the coming months. It was a fun show. I am rather excited to see many of my favorite artists coming to the front range in September, with the Monolith Festival @ Red Rocks Sept 14-15 and then Arcade Fire / LCD Soundsystem @ Red Rocks Sept 17th.

I am going to cease included "album" on playlists because it's really unnecessary information unless it is a live track.

Wow, this is surely the fastest that I have posted a playlist from a show, but I am still very much awake and still pretty excited about tonight's show. I don't think it was my best and certainly not my most put together show, but I did have a record number of callers for a late night show. Thanks to all the unknown people who called in tonight to ask what I was playing, make a request or simply say they were enjoying the show. You all made my night.

As for the music, I had burned 3 discs worth of material for tonight's show. These consisted of songs that I had really enjoyed over the past 3 years but had forgotten about or had simply not played recently. Of course, I left these CDs at home. Upon realizing this fact, I decided to do an A-Z show where I would play one song from one artist of each letter of the alphabet. It was a good time and got me to play some stuff I normally wouldn't have played. I reached Z about 12 minutes before 12:30am, but luckily a caller had requested some !!! and I guess punctuation goes after Z. Here goes:

After a long process of downloading, loading, and uploading (combined with a busy schedule and laziness), I can finally present to you the first-ever downloadable mp3 of the Music is My Girlfriend Show.

The mp3 covers the first 1 hour and 13 minutes of my May 7th show. As you probably don't recall, this show largely consisted of electronic, techno and dance music. Even if said music is not exactly your bag, you should still listen for the witty banter between Josh Bock and myself. Topics include: Spiderman 3 and its absent soundtrack, Pirates 3 and Johnny Depp, Crested Butte's altitude, and many other fascinating oddities.

Here's the link to the download page:

Hidden near the top is a text box where you must type the three letter code shown and then click the download button.

Here's the portion of the show that is part of this mp3:

Enjoy! Hopefully more mp3s are to come, but I have no other recorded shows to date so it may be awhile.
