Newest show from the week of 6/16/13 (and prior shows) now available for stream/share/download, and will be available for about one year. This was published on 6/19/13.
Next new show will be recorded the week of 6/23/13.
All shows and related media are kept on a WordPress server for about a year from each distribution date.

Radio Crystal Blue is a weekly internet radio/podcast program in the freeform tradition. I spotlight emerging music talent in various segments with occasional music features depending on the season or the volume of conceptual music that make its way to my library.
New shows are often posted by Wednesday each week and can be heard in my FeedPlayer

Or you can take the Feed Player once you’re on Big Contact’s site and put it up on your site or blog! There are many ways to access and share the player.
In addition I air RCB Novus Ordo, spinning one song from 8 different CDs and presenting a bio of each artist. This show can also be heard at the above Feed Player.

Please do NOT confuse this site with the .com version, which I did own until last year. An unscrupulous web registrant company sold it off and I’ve not been able to get the site ever since. The .net is mine.
