************************************************
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about April 11 and will be available for
about 4 months beyond. Owing to schedule demands, I usually aim for noon
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
as many as 8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each
artist.

*********************************************************************************
No new media for you this week. I’m planning to attend these shows here in Philly:
A Little Affair play at JR’s Bar here in South Philly on 4/13. I’ve heard a few interesting things about this dive. There’s barely a website presence; there is a macabre collection of decor strewn about; stage-diving is known to happen frequently. Am I scaring you yet? Good. www.alittleaffairmusic.com
Sylvia Platypus performs on a bill with Study Electrictiy at The Grape Room on 4/19. I’ve seen the latter band just once; great example of modern Philly rock. Sylvia Platypus I’ve not yet seen. They are billed as “psycho-Celtic’ rock. I met their lead singer Janet Bressler once at a Song Dogs & The Nightjar show; we already were connected on that Facebook thing. www.sylviaplatypus.com
Local Americana/country-rockers band Gavilan share members of the band Richie Allen & The Midvale 9, and are releasing a new CD at The Grape Room on 4/21. I have their CD in advance, and will certainly spin this for you when it’s time for me to debut itt. http://www.reverbnation.com/headlesscowboymusic

********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of my shows.
On RCB Novus Ordo: 2 bands local to Philly, Johnny Action Figure, and The Tressels, debut on this edition. Red Abbey, formerly of Hoboken NJ, now in Las Vegas, have recently released their first full album. full of the same fire and brimstone they produce on stage.

RCB proper: Segment 1 was anchored by Shane Cooley. He is touring with Adam Web across the MidAtlantic states .Shane and others in the segment are performing at this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival (Wes Tucker, Flo Anito, Jamie Alimorad). Segment 2 started with pairs of duos (Sirsy, Schwervon!, The StereoFidelics; note the string quartet added to Sirsy’s Sorry Me”). Segment 3 featured tales of death, despair and hopefulness. Marybeth D’Amico’s tune “Beneath The Rubble” seems to anchor all these songs. Segment 4 includes new music from Daniel Levi Goans, a recently released song by Kate Klim, and both a Mark Erelli cover and original. Also completed the first full airing of the unearthed music from 1997-2002 by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer.

RCB Novus Ordo did not air this week. Owing to my timeline and health I took it down this week but will return, also on or about February 8.  This show is one where I spin one song from as many as 8 songs in one sitting and give you background of each artist.
**********************************************************************************
The big drama for me was not so much radio as it was my person.  A pesistent stomach pain led me to checking into a local hospital and a health clinic. The only thing done were a check on my heart, blood pressure and blood work. I might be going to therapy for anxiety.   I’ve been prescribed a drug that I’ve begun to take.  As much as I’m being a good boy and taking it, my intention is to instead rely on any ‘new age’/folk/alternative therapies.  Any suggestions will be taken very seriously.  

As mentioned above, radio (and many other matters) was left on the sideline, but the time is allowing me to recognize the great community of people there is on the Web. That includes you reading this.  Many friends checked in on me via social media and there were a few phone calls.  On top of this, my birthday gathered close to 400 well-wishes on Facebook, all of them taken to heart.   I spent the day in bed, just aligning with some sort of balance in my body and beliefs.  Thank you for your insight, your wisdom, and your love as I go forward changing my health for the better.

Not planning to go to live events for the time being.  The discomfort in me is at a minimal but it’s there.

SHORTY AWARD voting continues into February.  Give a creative Tweet as your

RCB REVIEW:
On Radio Crystal Blue proper:  As I lay healing on my birthday, on the radio came this Marcus Miller song “Silver Rain” which features Eric Clapton soloing. Many other good artists on the CD of the same name.  A healing song in and of itself.   Within segment #1 I spun Fellaheen’s tune referencing a time between New Year’s and spring.    The Millenium Music Conference in Harrisburg PA occurs February 16-19. I spun music from 8 of the 300+ artists taking part in the free regional showcases.  Adam Web, Levee Drivers, and Donovan Rice & The Standing Cinema are bands I first heard of in performance mode in Philly.  My Pet Dragon is introduced to the RCB rotation in this special segment.    The YaYas and Honor Finnegan (RCB debut)  share billing at a UU congregation in Garden City NY tonight    Beaucoup Blue and Red Molly share billing at Sellersville Theater 2/18.      Played some wistful and sneaky rhythmic tunes from Evangenitals and Sam Otis Hill & Co.      Did a segue referencing trees (Ben Knighten, Stephan Crump, Anna Dagmar).
