PROGRAMMING
Next pair of podcasts will be published late into the week of April 19 2015
RCB Novus Ordo airs as a separate podcast to highlight songs from brand-new
releases in one sitting, along with bio of each artist. 6 new albums will be introduced this week.
*****
With several lives calling to me at once (job search,  radio, sports media) I haven’t taken the time to post in a few weeks. This may become the new trend, instead of weekly updates.
Still in old business:  RCB archives. I want to get to the shows I did live in 2005-2006, clean up the audio and republish at archive.org
Camera/camcorder: This I want to acquire for assistance in covering live events in Tacoma and beyond.
CLAMMR is not a show, but a feed of audiobites arranged much like Twitter.
This particular app is designed currently for the Apple universe; it will
add more portals soon.  You can join and add radiocblue to get my posts,
which are 18-second soundbites of every song I air.  You can refer to
publisher.clammr.com to get started. And you can get my feed, suitable for
RECAP of the last 3 pairs of shows:
3/29: Saw the debuts of longtime RCB faves Liz Longley and Amy Speace, and the debut of a new live Luke Dowler album. Had a sudden interest in airing some classic rock and punk, and we hear such music that includes saxophone in a few…plus 2 from The Ramones (the unwritten rule is that you can’t just air 1 Ramones tune at a time). Slaid Cleaves, Darlingside and Shinyribs shared billing at the time and we hear those artists in one segment together. Enjoying a 2nd airing were these artists: Band Of Lovers, The Brehms, Mystery Loves Company.
4/5: Debuts this week namely from these: Maynard & The Musties (NYC roots-rock, Eric Ambel production), Chris Daniels & The Kings (Colorado funk & rock, and who was a Skype interview subject in 2013), and Katie Garibaldi (last gave airplay to in May of 2011). In rotation and new: Clarence Bucaro.  2nd airings to these artists: Live Hart, Sam Morrow, Danielle Miraglia.  Nice segue in Segment 3 between Loretta Hagen, Glen Roethel and Sloan Wainwright (Sloan and Glen duet on his song “Vanishing Point”). Opened the show with Bettie Serveert, one of my all-time faves, and paired it with some great post-punk/electronic artists.
4/12 sees the debut of Fireships, a thoroughly modern rock/folk ensemble with a bunch of special guests, all based in NYC. Other debuts include British blues legend Ian Siegal, and Mia Theodoratus, who has a self-styled ‘electric harp’ type of sound.   Fred Gillen Jr. & Matt Turk have begun to tour again together, and I aired music from the duo album they released some years ago, plus one from Matt. Miss Tess & The Talkbacks in segment 1 also with a song by Ted Hawkins, a songwriter mainly active from the 1970s to 1990s, gained fame from busking in Venice Beach CA, and later fame on stage in Europe as opposed to the Americas.
2nd airing of music from Karina Nistal, Moot Davis, and James McMurtry (his first studio album in years). Opening segment started with NYC punk revival and a small exploration into its roots. DGeneration was the first concert I ever saw, at the Continental, NYC, 1990. I also saw NY Loose a few years later, recognizing them from a CMJ compilation I collected.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
I am accepting CDs and downloads for the rotation. CDs will be featured on  Radio Crystal Blue Novus Ordo, and eventually on  Music must have a 2014-15 release date. I’ll accept material not older than 6 months from the present date. Material older than that date, plus all downloads do not receive a feature; they’ll be considered for the rotation itself.  I’m also interested in featuring, great compilation or soundtrack albums\track-for-track, to help tell the story of those albums.
EPK (Electronic press kits) submissions can be sent via one of these companies.
Search for the words Radio Crystal Blue to find my pages there. If I like
the EPK, I will then ask for a CD.
CDs that fit in the above rules may be sent to

*****
Yeah, it’s been a few weeks. I’ve decided on fewer of these posts but am continuing to intend good quality info with each.   The important thing is that you continue to listen and enjoy the freeform radio experience.

I haven’t found much time for this but I still want to dig through the RCB archives and get some older shows from 2006 out to you all. They haven’t been heard since I first aired them live. Also I am available for interviews about myself and RCB.

 I further intend to get to some live music events, and acquire some gear for that purpose. My Fujifilm camera is suddenly inoperable. I am planning to be at an event here in Tacoma on Thursday April 2. I’ve had to borrow another camera for the occasion.  I may get a Canon Vixia HD camcorder in the future; the same device I used when studying audio/visual work with PhillyCAM (Philadephia’s public-access cable TV station) 3 years ago.
CLAMMR is not a show, but a feed of audiobites arranged much like Twitter. This particular app is designed currently for the Apple universe; it will add more portals soon.  You can join and add radiocblue to get my posts, which are 18-second soundbites of every song I air.  You can refer to publisher.clammr.com to get started. And you can get my feed, suitable for framing, if you will, at http://www.clammr.com/player/embed/15732
RECAP of March shows:
Notable debuts include The Burns Sisters (contemporary/traditional Celtic folk), Barnstar! (supergroup of modern folk in New England), veteran songwriter James Hurley, newcomer TJ Doyle, RCB faves Spuyten Duyvil (Americana/roots/folk), Paul Sawtelle & The Brotherhood Of Soul,  Within the rotation were these debuts: James McMurtry (first new album in years), and Antigone Rising (veteran country/rock group).
The 3/22 show included a perennial segment featuring artists who were part of this year’s Singer Songwriter Cape May. Berkalin Records, run by Brian Kalinec, held an anniversary show, and I included a mini-segment of their clients performing that show.   The 3/15 show, the one before the equinox, included the customary selection of Celtic/Irish songs (I was feeling more of the protest songs that day), and a fun tune by The Sprinkle Genies, whom is still beloved by the antifolk community in NYC.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
I am accepting CDs and downloads for the rotation. CDs will be featured on Radio Crystal Blue Novus Ordo, and eventually on  Music must have a 2014-15 release date. I’ll accept material not older than 6 months from the present
date.   Any older material will not receive a featured debut; instead, they
will be placed within the long rotation and selection process for future
shows.
I’m also interested in featuring, great compilation or soundtrack
albums\track-for-track, to help tell the story of those albums.
EPK (Electronic press kits) submissions can be sent via one of these
companies.
Search for the words Radio Crystal Blue to find my pages there. If I like
the EPK, I will then ask for a CD.
