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:

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

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.
*****
THE LATEST
Firstly, you’ll forgive me, I’m sure, if you note that my news and my shows are now running days later than in previous weeks. The stress on the homefront has mounted considerably
Surely if you’ve followed what I’ve posted online, I don’t have much more to add for what is happening to me and my life, without sounding like complaining. I feel like I should not focus on a possible eviction and the loss of everything I own, all because I can’t find or keep work. Is it Philly? Is it me? What is it that I must do to turn my life around financially? Whatever it is, it has to manifest darn quickly.  The court date is 9/26
The city agencies, at least the ones I’ve reached, have no funding at this time.  I’ve used every possible device within the welfare system that I’m eligible for to stay afloat.  My only hope is for some amount of financial assistance that can keep both sides from involving a judge. From the small legal help I’ve received, I don’t stand a chance.
So, where to move then? And, how?
There are several areas on my hit list. I can’t visit them all before deciding so I’m having to make comparisons and some hard decisions.  Those areas are
Madison WI
Asheville NC
Seattle WA
The main variables I’m focusing on are opportunities for employment, commute time, crime, social services, and environment.
Philadelphia’s been a good run for 3.5 years but, unless I am able to stay where I live a bit longer, perhaps it’s best I see more of the world and combat the problems I have in a different city.  If you kno someone in the above cities, or one that knows of the pros/cons of the variables I’ve listed for a city you live in or at least know well, please contact me at once.
RCB REWIND:   On RCB Novus Ordo, we heard mostly from artists with previous RCB airplay. New Sweden is touring regionally these days when not based in Phillly. Christine Albert is one-half of Albert & Gage. She’s on the Board of Trustees at The Recording Academy.   Speaking of Chris Gage, he can be heard on Adler & Hearne’s latest album.   Parsonsfield changed their name from Poor Old Shine, keeping the same great folk-rock content.  Flagship Romance is a duo project that also receives extra coverage this week.
RCB proper: A chat and reflection on 80’s music led to playing certain tunes, including recent releases by Public Image Ltd, and The Orb ,featuring the Upsetter, Lee “Scratch” Perry.  I had to add some vintage Primal Scream, noting the death of “Throb”, Robert Young.   Segment 1 includes artists who took part in the Adams Morgan Day festival in DC. “Cavalry” by Roosevelt Dime reflects on a cemetery in my former stomping grounds of Brooklyn, NY.  Segment 2 gives us another new tune from The Far West. Antigone Rising & Sirsy were scheduled for the Utica Music & Arts Festival tho I can’t quite confirm the former were at the festival.
 Segment 3 contains several artists that performed in the Tribes Hill Folk Festival in Katonah NY. New song from Matt Turk is included.. Final segment contained mainly folk and Americana. More new music from Rod Picott and Matt Harlan in the mix.
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

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.
*****
THE LATEST: As we’re deeper into September, I’m also continuing to seek out alternatives to my housing situation that may well come to an end by September’s end.   I’ve been to several city agencies with very little progress, and there’s a therapy session later this week.   I’ve made no progress with finding work, and I just refuse to believe that being homeless is inevitable.  But I don’t know of any alternatives, thanks to the very bureaucracy that’s slowing things down.   I haven’t even found an attorney that I feel I can trust.  Maybe my situation is undefendable.   But I need answers.  And a miracle, or three.
While all this is happening, I’m maintaining my health, the apartment is in decent enough shape, and am making some interesting new aquaintances online, and there is also these projects I am working on along with Radio Crystal Blue.  I see myself combining efforts and traveling to make this all work. If you want to read more, see my Vision page on the website.  The Derek Rydall material continues to inspire.  I no longer wake up dreading the day or week to come.  There is enough time to get necessary work done as well as this program.
RCB REWIND:  On RCB Novus Ordo, most of the material contained an Americana or roots vibe. Mark Jones & Twenty Paces is within these genres, tho I’d say more roots-rock, which is a personal favorite genre. Jon Shain resurfaces for a covers album, and naturally I chose a Hank Williams Sr. song for the occasion. I have heard much about Folkapotamus since their debut in 2011, and they are proudly on my radar for the first time.   With the next several shows, I’ll stick to 6 songs per show, as the library is starting to look a bit lean for wear.
RCB proper:   The tradition is this: Around what we call Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end to the season that unofficially began Memorial Day, I air particular tunes, and somehow thread them into autumn.  The Fatboy Slim sampling of The Doors is now a staple, as is the use of Jimi Hendrix’s passing reference to Dick Dale (and Dick Dale’s music) in “Third Stone From The Sun…and then, silence…and then a jazz number to cool things down somewhat, an easing in.. Being in Philly now and in the situation I’m in, “Fall in Philadelphia” by Hall & Oates has not sounded more poignant for use here.   Segment 1: We hear a brand new song from Brooklyn’s own Jessi Robertson, the first from a forthcoming new album, apparently in a different vibe than her prior effort. I continue to champion The Sidleys, who have a thoroughly contemporary sound.  Veteran songwriter Claudia Schmidt is heard once again. Claudia, along with The Steel Wheels, were part of last weekend’s Wheatland Music Festival in the town of Remus, MI. Segment 2 contains blues for the most part; notably a quick number from RB Stone. Steve Conte, off his new NYC album, presents a slower, thoughtful song on the otherwise rockin’ collection of songs. Segment 3 contains foreign-language songs from both Greg Klyma and Ronstadt Generations.  Heather Pierson & Carrie Ferguson (plus Caroline Cotter) were part of a songwriter-in-the-round event in Conway NH last week. Final segment: RJ Cowdery and Beggar’s Ride were 2 acts for a one-day conference/event. The event presented by NERFA and SERFA, two chapters of Folk Alliance International was held on September 6th, in Charlottesville, VA.
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 albums.
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
