Radio Crystal Blue news (week of 5/24/15)


Hi all! This is the latest Radio Crystal Blue news.
In this edition:
HOW TO LISTEN
PROGRAMMING
LATEST NEWS
RECAP of shows
ETC.
HOW TO LISTEN: Many different portals to access Radio Crystal Blue exist.  I’m soon to phase out the Big Contact FeedPlayer, as their service will soon be moving focus away from podcasting. I have since located
Podcast Garden which has free hosting:  http://www.podcastgarden.com/podcast/radiocblue  Download and stream each episode starting with the main 5/17/15 show. I’ll add more each week as we go.
Internet Archive https://archive.org/details/@radiocblue contains every show I’ve uploaded in the last 2 years there.   All content there is available for the life of the Internet.   You can access individual shows further by going to my website and see the individual posts of each show, which has unique URLs.  You can also find them by seeing the appropo posts on Facebook, Twitter and Clammr.
Get the Stitcher app for Android, and i-devices which captures whole podcast shows  http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/radio-crystal-blue

PROGRAMMING
Radio Crystal Blue’s main show, as with RCB Novus Ordo, are delivered late into each week, named for the Sunday of that week.  Each show, after editing through Audacity, gets published to the above portals, then to my website, then the notes are typed up, Clammr clips are saved and published, (more about Clammr in a bit) then I sound the trumpets.
RCB Novus Ordo’s focus is to highlight songs from brand-new releases, along with my reciting of bios of each.  Currently 6 new releases are covered weekly. This number changes depending on the available amount of actual CDs waiting in my library
I continue to seek specific concept and compilation albums. If you know of such, ones that I can feature track-for-track, please let me know at once.  dan@radiocrystalblue.net
SPONSORSHIP and SYNDICATION: I’m always seeking new blood for the show, folks whose product I can talk about on the air, mention in these emails, and blab (er, Tweet) about elsewhere in social media.   Further I’d like to increase RCB’s visibility through being part of other Internet radio or podcast networks. If you know of any I should join, contact me at dan@radiocrystalblue.net
CLAMMR is a technology I believe in. We are becoming more accepting of larger audio files and direct messages, going beyond the 6-second Vine loops, and embracing longer clips.  I’ve joked before that we’ll soon be doing 30-minute docudramas out of our pockets. I’m not being facetious with this idea. In fact, I’m strongly believing in the concept.   I plan to attend a local college to study the finer points of audio-visual technology and how to develop shows and work behind the camera as much as in front of.   As for Clammr, it’s been described as an audio version of Instagram or Twitter. All you have to do is create 18-second sound bites and upload and tag them.  What I do is create samples of every song I air on both podcasts.  Enjoy the ride by going to publisher.clammr.com and the New Alt Music channel, or my direct feed at http://www.clammr.com/player/embed/15732
LIVING ARCHIVE: I am wanting to rebuild an archive of shows from all years going back to 2001.  If you have tapes, CDs or files of any shows that you have recorded, I’d like to borrow them for this project to help preserve the history and tell the story of RCB’s 15 years on the air.  Contact via email at dan@radiocrystalblue.net
IAIB: I’ve joined the International Association Of Internet Broadcasters. Read more at this link: http://www.ibroadcastnetwork.org/

RECAP of recent shows:
4/19 debts include Michael Falzarano (Hot Tuna, New Riders Of The Purple Sage), Seattle-area band Terra Zoo, and guitar maestro Anthony Gomes. New song here too from Jo Wymer plus Mystery Loves Company and Candice Sand.
4/26  Elaine Romanelli returns with her latest album, as does Joey Stuckey whom I had the chance to meet nearly 10 years ago.  Solid R&B debuts here from Deb Ryder & Pam Steebler.  Debut of material by Tacoma-area power-pop band Strangely Alright.
5/3  Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount, plus Kye Alfred Hillig are 2 artists I saw live here in Tacoma, and both debut on this week’s programs.  Within the main show: I mused upon how Van Morrison would program a show; the idea led to how this week’s show began at least.  Special segment includes performers in this year’s Wildflower Festival.  More good debuts here from Liz Longley and Jesse Terry.
5/10 This is the first show I began with a new standard opening, borrowed from Vin Scelsa’s opening. Vin had retired in the week prior.  Special segment features artists that took part in SERFA and the Montauk Music Festivals.
5/17
Open Book, the husband-wife duo of Rick and Michelle Gedney, continuing the superb adult contemporary vibe they have carried forth on several albums; Danny Schmidt, also known as Mr. Carrie Elkin, has a new solo effort.  Activist/songwriter John McCutcheon has a new album out about turn of the century activist Joe Hill. Special segments focus on Kerrville Folk Festival plus my first summer segue of songs.
An unearthed show from September 18 2005 has re-entered the Web. After a fair scrubbing of audio quality, I am proud to unveil this Live365 program, which features some notable debuts by Jann Klose, Sharon Goldman and others!  Exclusive to the Internet Archive at https://archive.org/details/RCB091805
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
I am accepting CDs and downloads for the rotation. CDs will be featured on Radio Crystal Blue Novus Ordo, and eventually on RCB itself.  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, including downloads, do not receive a feature; they’ll be considered for the rotation itself.

RCB Archive: September 18, 2005 show reintroduced


Hi everyone. Back we go in the time capsule to 2005.  I was finishing my tenure with a club called The C-Note, having run bi-monthly Monday evenings for 3 years.  That same month I had attended CBGB one last time to see veteran NYC punk and no wave  bands including the Dead Kennedys. From that show, and related stench, I felt a rededication to playing more music from indie and emerging artists, and much less of the major. I was finishing the 5th year of my radio program, which had begun to embrace podcast technology. The owner of the RSS would pull the plug within a year’s time, and I was able to latch onto Big Contact, who are the current RSS host.   I had a page of archival material at Lunarpages which is now no more.
During this particular edition, I recall having lost some battery power and had to use different external equipment…all when I did not own a mixer (that was from 2008 on). I still don’t know how I managed to do it but I did.  I had shared reviews online of shows I had booked with NYC Gigs, with whom I was employed by until 2011 upon my relocation.  I advertised the 169 Bar, which had since changed owners, and has become a Cajun-cuisine restaurant (how about crab mac for $8? Caviar for $35?). I also remember attending a show at Sidewalk Café the week prior and mentioning performers Lowry (backed by Sarah and Claire Bowman), and the mercurial Lach.  Also a show at The Bitter End involving touring trio Julie Loyd, Melineh Kurdian and Liz Clark.
I was also in the midst of my tenure at Live365, where I now had to report my airplay and also pay royalties for the first time.  I had built a following through that and also coloring the experience with more details in my YahooGroup (which still stands, btw: groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/radiocrystalblue)   Opening and closing music for a while were the pieces by TJ Rehmi, ‘chill’ music inspired by his roots in India.
I had styled every featured artists as “Gems”, a title I no longer use.  I also had a 2nd slightly lower title that allowed a smaller airplay feature called Future Stars. These pair of airplay segments would feed into my annual Airplay Vote. I wonder if I’ll resurrect that vote.
The forerunner of my now common RCB Novus Ordo was the New Music Sampler. I would simply air 4-8 songs in one segment, reciting bio of each artist alongside.  I used to do this during the big show itself.  Now it exists as its own show and properly so. One more reason why my shows often checked in at beyond 5 hours!
I cleaned up the audio the best as I could, considering the lower quality level. Because of my PC’s slow computing power, I could only broadcast in about 22 kbps, meaning you could hear the output at 11 kpbs which isn’t all that hot but at least there was a consistent signal. Most weeks, anyway.    Where possible, I have linked every songwriter and band to their most recent official website or place to be contacted.
Also among the highlights are the RCB debut of Jann Klose, Thea Gilmore, Sharon Goldman, and also music from the first recordings by The Mad Tea Party, Antje Duvekot and Amy Speace. There’s even Karen Jacobsen, known to millions as the Aussie voice of Siri.
