Help to keep Radio Crystal Blue on the air


Radio Crystal Blue, my 14-year freeform radio program, has had some financial trouble as of late. Having survived a move out of Philadelphia, I am seeking funding to keep the show going and thriving.
Necessary funds go toward replacing batteries, microphones, bill payment for electricity, Internet connection and phone, and the rent, of course.

This program is my proudest creation, and it deserves to continue to reach hearts and minds.  Donate here:

*****
THE LATEST
This week I continue to ride out a long period of having no identification,
the ramifications of which are immense. In relation to my show, I’m happy at
least to have a place to call home.  The bills are cutting into my meager
savings, so I’m intending some better results. I aim to have a regular
income again and to make some inroads networking without traveling too far
from home.
I’m beginning to receive CD packages here, which is a positive step . I
wonder whether you have my new address. It’s posted onto the website, and
I’ll reprint below. I’ve joined the fledgling social network ELLO this week
upon receiving an official invite.  The network is small and growing in
small ways. This week it added more options for sharing.   I’m at
www.ello.co/radiocblue  To join the network you’ll need an invitation code,
so see me for one.  My goal is to post more exclusive content than you’ll
expect on other social media platforms.

RCB REWIND: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Hot Rod Pacer is a new folk rock group helmed by
producer-songwriter Fred Gillen Jr. I consider him among the hardest working
men in folk.  Long Island NY’s Ray Lambiase returns with another great
collection of songwriter fare. I’m also impressed by the folk trio The Early
Mays, who have their debut on this program as well.
RCB:  Program starts with my own audio recording of the local traffic
situation, complete with nbrand new audio traffic control for pedestrians.
Neil Young & Pearl Jam collaborated on a stellar album, and Big Green
Country felt like an appropo place to start my first show outside of the
east coast.  The Neko Case tune is a given considering I’m now living just
south of South Tacoma, in Parkland.  Segment 1 includes another new tune
from jam band Achilles Wheel, plus a track from The Knollwood Boys, whom I
haven’t heard from since the CD release.  Segment 2: Annalise Emerick
releases a new album herself. Segment 3: I absolutely love the new music by
Britt Connors along with her band Bourbon Renewal.  One more bit of airplay
for the individual artists who are the No Fuss & Feathers Roadshow. Final
segment: Brother Sun & The Chapin Sisters are a double bill at Outpost In
The Burbs in Montclair NJ on 11/14.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
I focus on CDs as opposed to downloads, though I make exceptions in the
event of albums that are digital releases only. Music must have a 2014
release date. All new albums debut on RCB Novus Ordo; on rare exception,
some debut on Radio Crystal Blue proper.
I’m also interested in featuring, great compilation or soundtrack albums
track-for-track, to help tell the story of those album (see above).
EPK (Electronic press kits) submissions can be sent via one of these
companies.

THE LATEST
If you’ve read my posts on Facebook, I kept you abreast of my half-week journey via Greyhound from South Philadelphia to downtown Tacoma, arriving on Thursday 10/16.  The experience was harrowing, as I had some trouble with the boxes that contained all my worldly possessions.  The boxes would eventually be shipped from Columbus OH to Tacoma, and it was a matter of waiting for them to appear.    I enjoyed seeing the scenery of the Western States, especially in Oregon, Colorado and Utah.   I only wish I had packed my point-and-shoot so that I could capture the experience.   In the process of picking up the boxes, I would lose my laptop bag, which was carrying most of my identification, so I’m not exactly out of the woods yet in getting all settled in.
I am living with a couple, Tim and Lora Nichols (the latter whom you may know better as DJ Flowerdove) who are fans of my show and they have successfully figured out the technical aspects of getting the podcast set up.  I had forgotten the actual settings and where the wires connect but now all appears well.     Now the connecting to public-relations people, artists and their managers is starting.  I aim to record a new podcast early next week, when given the appropriate time to do so.
I have added a 2nd phone number, and have officially changed my physical address. All other contact information remains the same.

PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published late this week. You will hear music in several
segments of top touring indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.
RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 7 songs, one each from a brand new
recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
For the 9/28/14 edition, I will present 5 artists, 2 songs each.
*****
THE LATEST
I’ve publicly committed to a new life in a very new climate for me.  That climate is Tacoma, WA.  This area came to me in the form of a couple I met online just weeks ago…finding a lot of common ground in several areas, not the least of which includes elements of spirituality and music.  If you recall the vision on that page of my website, you’ll see that this, plus travel, is an absolute fit along the path that I can see leading the way.
For me, it’s a chance to start anew from just about rock bottom, as I hit bottom again, but will rise with the full intention of being self-supporting.  Is it any better away from the East Coast?  The people I’ve spoken to seem to indicate that it’s so.
Be assured that this is not an escape.  This is an area that I simply feel inwardly called to be at, and a place that may very well help to foster the vision of a better life for me and all concerned.
There are some visible changes to Radio Crystal Blue too coming up that I assure will draw more eyeballs and more tongues as well as your earlobes. I can’t vouch for other body parts or functions but I think you feel me.    On the occasion of what will be the beginning of a 15th anniversary year, this personal year should start out very well and with a stronger intention than before to gain in fame.  The concept is mine, yet it should belong to all of you,those of you that support freeform radio and the artistry of airing music, and the stories of their artists, that I believe in.
Meanwhile, there is the whole matter of the moving itself. I’m going to have anywhere from 4-12 boxes coming with me….electronic equipment, books, important papers, clothing. That’s it.   I’ll be carrying my laptop and tablet with me, natch.    What I seriously need is help with getting the boxes out of here. I have until October 19th to move, per the court judgment.  I need some sort of plan of action and the time and & to do it.  At least 2 people have mentioned a sort of ‘freight forwarding’ idea.  Another couple of people have suggested uShip, which I did partake in, and I did create this:
It’s got one bid, a bid so high I can’t possibly respond to it.    There must be a resolution, and I need your help now to see this transition through.

CD FOCUS:  I’m reviving this segment to occur during and after the big move.   And I have TWO albums to feature, track-for-track this time, over the next number of weeks.
Link Of Chain, A Songwriters Tribute To Chris Smither, contains 15 songs in all, all by indie and established artists. Chris is a long-time favorite of my show, going back to the 2005 album Train Home.  It’s put out by the mighty Signature Sounds label in New England, the first label to take a chance on a 1 year old internet radio, sending me Kris Delmhorst’s “Five Stories” album back in the fall of 2001.   Signature celebrates 20 years in business, and I’m happy to spread the word about their presence along with this album.  http://www.signaturesounds.com http://www.smither.com
The Grateful Dead,….we know about that group, don’t we? You’ve heard all you could hear about them, right? RIght?   Well, out of the deep blue comes an album, or possibly the recording itself, that has never surfaced until now. The Dead, in 1990 was in the twilight of their history, but played a memorable show in Nassau Coliseum, Hempstead NY on March 29, 1990. The show features the presence of no less than Branford Marsalis on a 3-CD collection, titled Wake Up To Find Out. Tip of the hat to Rich Mahan for the generosity in sending it along.

RCB REWIND:
On RCB Novus Ordo, I bring  back the sound of country/rock songwriter Debbie Goodman.  Last I heard from her she was plying her trade in NYC, and now she’s on the West Coast.  Award-winning songwriter Aaaron Jacobs teams up with cellist/songwriter Michael G. Ronstadt for a collection of their originals.
On RCB itself, we hear the words of Agent Dale Cooper. Having thought of my impending move out west, and Agent Cooper’s own connections to Philadelphia, this was too good a start not to air, along with music from the Twin Peaks soundtrack.  Disappear Fear, Marc Black & Jim Photoglo were a few of the official showcase participants in this past weekend’s SWRFA event in Austin TX. Added some blues in the first segment.  Antje Duvekot & Amy Speace co-bill at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music.  Roger Silverberg held his 9th annual Songwriters In The Round, tho this year changed venues to the BJ Spoke Gallery in Huntington NY. Danielle Miraglia & Ray Lambiase, 2 of the 4 songwriters who participated, are soon to release new albums. The No Fuss No Feathers roadshow continues, which is why you hear me spin Carolann Solebello, Karyn Oliver, and The YaYas back-to-back-to-back.  Kept it to folk in the finale with a few ensembles and standard songwriter fare. Molasses Creek continues to host events at the Deepwater Theater on Ocracoke Island, (including their recent Ocrafolk Opry), with a few shows on the US mainland.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
I focus on CDs as opposed to downloads, though I make exceptions in the
event of albums that are digital releases only. Music must have a 2014
release date. All new albums debut on RCB Novus Ordo; on rare exception,
some debut on Radio Crystal Blue proper.
I’m also interested in featuring, great compilation or soundtrack albums
track-for-track, to help tell the story of those album (see above).
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
