NEXT SHOW will be published on or about November 7 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:

First things: I’m OK. My home is OK. South Philly is way OK. If you followed my tracks on Facebook, I did indeed check into one of the 3 Red Cross emergency temporary shelters, as I had some concern about how things would hold up. Fortunately the place is not in a flood zone, no trees to be felled, very little property damage outside. Electricity stayed on as well as the VoIP phone and Web service. I had done an experiment on the spiritual level and shared this with Facebook friends. I’d like to think that this work helped turn the weather a bit and protect. I do believe in this power and believe it to be real. I have nothing but sympathy and love and good vibes to send to my friends and brethren all across the NY/NJ/PA/ area who have lost electricity and other power along with means of communication and transportation. We will all rise from this again.

This weekend sees me cover 2 live events, plus handicapping the big Breeders Cup weekend.I’ll be posting on my stat blog about that experience. I’m also finishing up a video production course next week, with an exam to follow.

There are a LOT of CDs coming in, so there’s no lack of talent that I’m debuting on a weekly basis. At some point in December I’m attempting to get more new artists directly in rotation, in order to save the long wait for debuting on RCB Novus Ordo. For real, most material coming in now are likely to debut in January. That is how busy it’s been here. If you or an artists you know or represent has already submitted music to me, be sure I’m on that artist’s non-regionalized email list.
OCTOBER STATS in brief: Set a new one-day access record during the month on 10/20. A number of people had caught link to the video that I shot of The City And Horses, at Milkboy Philly. My review of The Grape Room event from 10/16 also caught a lot of eyeballs. Also high on the list is the Ortlieb’s Lounge show review from 10/22. Canada, UK and Italy are showing the most love outside the US.
Thanks to these website for showing love online:

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: The Kennedys are back! They’ve just released a new album, with all of Pete’s guitar wizardry and Maura’s vocal and songwriting craft. Starring, on the Northern Spy label, are one of the leading lights in Brooklyn NY’s underground music scene via their brand of psychedelia-tinged rock. Gathering Time are a bit of a throwback to the folk groups of the 60′s and 70′s.

RCB proper: About the oldest traditions of this show’s history is to do a Halloween (OK, OK, end-of-October holiday) show…and there are many songs that are relevant to the holiday. So I lit some white sage, let the smoke linger, and recited Poe’s “Alone”, and the next voice you hear is William Dafoe, reciting “The Raven” which is on Lou Reed’s concept album based around the poem. Ramones? Of course. Always a staple to me for the holiday. I chose indie songs to add to similar holiday classics. Great punk from Chicago’s Voice Of Addiction, and Las Vegas’s The Gashers. New music from Margo Rey (client of Miles High Productions), Achilles Wheel, Wes Tucker & The Skillets, Schwervon! across different segments. Great segue also with Heather Styka & Devon Sproule, singing songs recalling childhood and bodies of water. Love and such dominates one whole segment, and we hear another new tune by Marci Geller there. Shane Cooley’s tune “Last Love” has an awesome guitar hook. The Nanci Griffith tribute album is amazing. I love Eric Brace & Last Train Home’s version of “I Wish It Would Rain”. Been in my head for days. Listen for me doing my best falsetto as I recall Bowie. This is why reading the words doesn’t compare to hearing the show.
