NEXT SHOW will be published on or about October 31 and will be available
for about 1 year. Remember, even if you miss hearing a show the week I
record, you can always find it within the FeedPlayer’s archive of older
shows. Owing to schedule demands, I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon
as possible thereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.
RCB Novus Ordo will also air separately. On this show I spin one song from
8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each artist.

PROGRAMMING NOTE:
For this and the next several weeks I am bfeaturing a Nanci Griffith tribute album
released by Huntington NY label Paradiddle Records. Titled “Trouble In The
Fields: An Artists’ Tribute To Nanci Griffith”, it contains music from
artists you’ve heard on my show plus others of their caliber. The album also
contains a narrative by Pete Kennedy. Profits from the sales of this album
benefit Mines Advisory Group. More about this album at:
www.paradiddlemusic.com www.maginternational.org

NON-PROGRAMMING NOTE: In past years I’ve done a loose Halloween and end-of-October flavored show. I want to continue the tradition this year, but I had not requested any holiday songs for the upcoming show. I will likely choose appropo songs from the rotation of albums I have and use them as extra segments. If you or an artist would like to suggest holiday songs, please suggest/submit by Tuesday 10/30. I plan to determine airplay for the next show sometime tonight outside of these extra songs.
NEW addition to the submission process: This week, Radio Crystal Blue became an affiliate of MusicClout, a site that provides services and
industry-related opportunities for musicians all across the world. I have a page on the website to receive submissions from at www.musicclout.comhttps://musicclout.com/contents/opportunity-1438-radio-crystal-blue-seeking-new-music-for-airplay.aspx
I have 2 more weeks with the classes at PhillyCAM, the city’s public-access cable network. It’s going fairly well, as I’m learning about lighting, cameras, action (even took starring role in our class production). Next I think we’re learning about Final Cut Pro and all things editing. Exam in 2 weeks as well.
Handicapping gains a presence in my life next weekend as the big Breeders Cup races are upon us. I tend to do my best work in the biggest events, so I’ll be relatively silent while I have my focus there. Follow my weekly Saturday selections at www.cblue456.tumblr.com******

On 10/22 I was at Ortlieb’s Lounge once again to see 2 bands from Seattle, they being The Blakes and The Young Evils. They had just played in NYC as part of the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC. Opening the event was Anjuli Josephine. Review of this event here: http://wp.me/p1FKJJ-j0

COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews along with photos, video, and audio of live events.
You can see and hear evidence across my Facebook and YouTube channels, plus
the field recording FeedPlayer.Time, location and expense will be taken into
account before taking on a job. I’ve done this work for free, but that may
change soon. Also, with the video skills I’m learning, I might do more
video oriented work in the future.

RCB REVIEW:
RCB Novus Ordo:

Best music from this edition includes a band from The Netherlands called Vast Countenance, also John Orsi of It’s Twilight Time, who presents experimental music.Russ Seeger, whose album is on the aforementioned Paradiddle Records, debuts here. Jeff Brown with some solid songwriting in his tune “Rain” that ends this show.
RCB proper: Gabrielle Roth had been a presence on this program since about 2005 upon my receiving her prior CD effort “Still Chillin’ “. I don’t quite recall how our paths linked, except that I had a contact from Valley Entertainment, the record label addition to the long-running syndicated radio program “Hearts Of Space”. That particular program, which I recommend to all of you, has served as a mild influence to my show. At some point, Gabrielle’s people sent me her dance/trance album. This and it’s follow-up, which became her last full-length album, often were used as intro and outro music to both RCB and RCB Novus Ordo. So, it can be said: Gabrielle is still. At the same time, that soul is freed. I never knew her, but I will miss her. Onward….
Gabrielle’s music figured in the intro and outro of this week’s programs as well, with selections I hadn’t spun before. First segment for this show was songwriter-oriented, speaking on love’s complications (Daniel Goodman’s tune here especially in focus, amidst the cold weather upon us). Segment 2: The Steel Wheels and The Waybacks (long time no spin!) are performing at the Riverhawk Festival in early November, in Brooksville, FL. We hear another new song by These City Limits also. The Nanci Griffith tribute CD kicks off with Sara Hickman, the Official State Musician of Texas for 2010-11. The Kennedys, Pete & Maura, produced this entire album, and they are heard on several songs as well. Segment 3: Hungrytown and Gregory Douglass. Doesn’t exactly fit as a segue, but I say it does. Why? They share billing at someplace called Rockwood Music Hall, 10/28. Final segment was rather reflective, especially with the timely “Late October”; this is from a collection of piano instrumentals by Heather Pierson. As you know, Danielle Miraglia and Katie Barbato share billing at Sine Studios in Philly on 10/3. Further, Danielle and Craig Bickhardt are sharing billing on 11/4 and 11/11. Katie and Craig and other songwriters perform at the Heart Strings Music Festival on 10/27, with proceeds to create the Heart Strings Scholarship for the Variety Club Children’s Charity.
