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:

Radio Crystal Blue week of 12/14/14 news


This is the latest edition of my periodic news on behalf of Radio Crystal

continually masters the art of freeform radio, with music from top indie,
underground and touring artists from all across the Web and the Earth at
large.

PROGRAMMING
Next podcast will be published late into the week of December 14, 2014
This particular show is the final one for the year, a special edition including holiday music, both classic and current, along with some amount of indie and underground artists. There are several traditions with this show that you’ll get to enjoy all over again.
I also am recording an interview with DJ Flowerdove http://www.reverbnation.com/loralouisenichols
RCB Novus Ordo will NOT be published this week. RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast that highlights songs from brand-new
releases in one sitting, along with bio of each artist.
CD FOCUS also will not be included in this podcast.  My track-for-track-coverage of  The Grateful Dead:  Wake Up To Find Out live
concert from 3/29/1990 will return in the first podcast of 2015, which should be the week of January 5, 2015.
*****
THE LATEST
It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? Some of my other lives, including strong earthly reality, kept calling to me these past few weeks. Some of the issues lay low as the holiday trucks through. I have all my identity, finally, and now am eligible to work.  Purchased a few gifts for several folks, including at a Scandinavian shop, which connects to the local Lutheran university.
The email/domain transfer is now complete.  Please reach me at dan@radiocrystalblue.net    Do not contact me through Comcast anymore, as I have let go of that account.  It’s about time I took real ownership of my website! What remains to be done is ensure that all contacts with the old address get acquainted with the new one. I expect that process to continue a few more weeks.
Thanks to everyone that submitted music for the holiday edition. It was a bit tough to make the cut this year, but all is resolved. Sometimes I have to keep songs out of the long rotation for years before they get heard again.
RCB REWIND: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo from 12/7: I began here with the latest album from PEI’s (Canada’s) own Catherine MacClellan, daughter of the late Gene MacClellan.  Deborah Henriksson from Sweden and a sense of pop/folk with a Celtic vibe, followed.
RCB proper began with a two-pronged obit: Bobby Keys, saxophonist for so many recordings over a 45 year period, passed away the prior week.  He appears in a long jam as part of the legendary George Harrison album “All Things Must Pass”.    Goodbye Blue Monday was a venue I visited just twice, but I remember the visits very well.  A place with kitsch from top to bottom. More kitsch on stage. A modest number of tables and chairs, small bar section. An openness with its booking, and musicians that built up a great community amongst each other.  As I mentioned on the air, with this being one of several notable closings in NYC, there will still be a need for the underground to express themselves, and hopefully to host a place to hold that need.  My hopes remain high as much as I was sad to read this news.   The song “Goodbye Blue Monday” is by antifolk artists The Feverfew, whom I understand have returned to live performance. Segment 1 includes new music by Ellis Paul, Patty Larkin and Larry Saklad. Segment 2, more of the same by James Hearne and Luke Potter.  Segment 3, Reverend TJ McGlinchey kicks this off. He and Dani Mari have founded a new band called Lovers League, which is soon to embark on a crowdfunding campaign.  Final segment was folky and thought-provoking, plus another track from the religion-themed “The Hibernian Mass” by Switchback.
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 or 2015
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

THE LATEST

This week I’ve resolved to get the identification process all restarted, now that I have some $ under me. I purchased a very necessary laptop bag, which will serve as a general purpose sort of bag (Yes, in a sense, a “Jeep”).   Thanksgiving here was pretty nice, bonding further with the family I live with and their friends, plus the opportunity to speak to my own family in TX.  Thank goodness for social media and those family members who do decide to make use of it. I’m thankful for my cousin in California, who has made strong efforts in getting a number of my cousins together in an online sense.  Home and family are just as important to me as is the need to work, organize, communicate.  And speaking of communicating….the physical mail is starting to pour in.  Alas, any mail that was sent to me between, say, middle to late October, is forever lost.  Surely you have my new address in Tacoma? Did you know I moved?
What’s also come to light is that I should transfer a lot of my communication in several directions. Have you noticed that I have never sent an email through the radiocrystalblue domain? Ever? That has to change. And it will. I’m receiving direct help to transfer the email hosting as well as the website proper; that’s for starters.  Then I have to gather my contacts and let them know about the new email addresses, whatever they happen to be.  Then I must cancel my service with Comcast, which I have had rather mixed feelings about, right down to the service level.   The biggest task will be the matter of changing my status with all people that have my current email address. That includes the hundreds of email mailing lists I’ve signed up for. I suppose I’ll have to do this myself, and the chances are good I’ll miss a few hundred folks, which I’d hate to do.   What I might stick to doing is see who I’m receiving email from in the most recent emails, and also see who has received repeat airplay from me over the last year.   That won’t be too hard of a task but it must be done.  If you know of other suggestions for getting the word out, do let me know.  For now, the comcast.net email remains.

Again I put out the call not just for new and original music but also holiday music.  The 12/14 is the big holiday edition, with appropo music for the season and the end of the year.  If you have, or know of someone who has any
holiday music, please let me know, and I’ll consider it.

RCB REWIND: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Strangely interesting is the music of Alzara with Brother Spellbinder. It’s almost in the experimental category as folk goes. The mighty Rachael Sage has released her 12th album, Blue Roses. It’s also the 8th album I’ve debuted on RCB, ever since Public Record, going back to 2003. That’s not the only artist I debuted years ago that remains a staple. How about new albums from Jonathan Byrd?  Johnsmith? Ellis Paul, who I saw for the first time last year, gets debuted here as well.  Hardin Burns is the duo of Andrew Hardin (Tom Russell) and Jeannie Burns (The Burns Sisters)

RCB for the standard experience sounds more even than the shows I’ve done in the last month. It’s because I have a new CD player, one that is portable, and very little machinery to create any background noise. The tradition continues: Lara Herscovitch’s anti-Thanksgiving song begins this edition. In segment one, we hear artists who were part of the 20th anniversary of the fine indie label Signature Sounds. Eilen Jewell returns to my airwaves, plus some more from the new album by Zoe Muth, and brand new music by Lonna Marie.  Segment 2 includes new music from UK pop music star Luke Potter. Also new is the group Chicha Dust, who present a live album. Chicha Dust draws heavily upon the songs from the chicha genre and throw in some heavier guitar. Segment 3 has new music by Jon Shain, here with an old Paul Simon cover.  Final segment includes music from an older song by Beth DeSombre.
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.
