It's that time of the year again! Barbecues by the pool, parties on the lake and enjoying various outdoor activities that Boulder & Denver have to offer. Whether you gravitate more towards lazily laying by the pool, embarking on a strenuous hike through the wilderness or taking the jeep off-roading through the mountains, the most important ingredient for a stellar time is what you're listening to. You would be surprised how crucial it is to advertise your musical taste carefully, especially when around people who determine the pleasure of an event based on the music that's playing in the background.

Summer is always splattered with summer anthems, albums, breakthrough stars and the ever so combative 'summer jam,' so let me give you a taste of what is currently exploding on the market radio wise and of course, the pop playlist I think everyone should have with them as you navigate through what is sure to be one of the best summers yet!
