THE VISION:

—–
PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about April 24 and will be available
for about 1 year. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.
ALSO: The next podcast will include more music from David Uoskkinen’s In The Pocket: Essential Songs Of Philadelphia “Sessions” album. The album contains 10 songs, all from artists with strong Philly ties. 2 songs shall be aired from this exciting concept album.


RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 6-8 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
*****
In focus for me this week is my job search, still intending to make every resource available while seeking, keeping it reasonable in terms of money, distance, time. The podcasts get worked on a bit later in the week these days but I remain committed to giving you high quality product with each show.
Now for a look and listen back:
RCB REWIND:

RCB Novus Ordo: Versatile songwriter and artist Kate MacLeod has a song from the standout album of the 5 I presented: “The Annual Menhaden” was inspired by Peter Matthiessen’s book “Men’s Lives”, the accounts of Long Island fisherman and a spring ritual. (Peter passed away last month). The album was recorded at Ken Sanders Rare Books in Salt Lake City. I’m becoming a fan of Fried Goat, a cool indie band, that takes the fandom of goats to a new level: there are goat recipes and their own one-page devotion to all things goat (better than Wikipedia)
RCB proper: A loose bouncy affair starts the first segment, with a strong gyspy feel, (Spuyten Duyvil, Kagero, plus the Late Saints from Philly). Segment 2 is more rock oriented. Dan Miraldi’s tune has a great 60′s pop rock vibe to it. . Sirsy, John Brodeur and Nine Times Blue also in this segment. They are part of the MOVE Music Festival in Albany NY this coming weekend. Began Segment 3 with something new from Jenn Friedman. Her new book and music project relates to her experirence with several eating disorders. The Portraits “Malala” references the two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, student/activist Malala Yousafzai. Si Kahn & Karen Collins shared billing on 4/20 as Si celebrated birthday #70. It was also a fundraiser for Alaska’s Bristol Bay, subject of a prior album of his. Segment: Raina Rose & Matt The Electrician appeared at Threadgill’s in Austin on 4/19.
SUBMISSION GUIDLINES
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 or not released otherwise before July 2013. 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.

*****
I don’t proclaim to have all of the best material from the best indie and underground artists. I might not have the best equipment. Despite these facts, here’s one more for you readers: My heart is in the right place. Radio Crystal Blue cannot exist without people who willfully support the show. I have no desire to be like the commercial stations, no matter how popular and marketed they are. I have enough desire to have the show grow and expand to something where it becomes your go-to for new music and a true sense of radio, in a format that belongs on the airwaves and in this era of podcasting. If I do not have or show that desire, this show fails to exist. That desire is still very strong, and I can only keep it going with those of you who give a damn.
 
I’ve decided on delaying the quarterly airplay chart until I have more time to devote it to. Nowadays I have much to do in my personal life that must get priority, including a job hunt, financial questions, and related.

****
PROGRAM UPDATE: I’m happy to report that I will debut a new compilation over the next 5 podcasts, including this week’s edition:
David Uosikkinen’s In The Pocket: Essential Songs Of Philadelphia: Sessions contains 10 songs, all from artists with strong Philly ties. Some amazing artists, including members of David’s own band The Hooters make appearances. The Hooters were one of several artists that helped to bring Philly’s own music scene to a national audience
****
I was at The Legendary Dobbs on Friday, April 11, up on the 2nd floor. Roger Silverberg, Larry Saklad and Brian Harmer did solo shows, and Brian’s wife Valentina Virgilio performed with 2 other guitarists, on a mix of covers and originals. In lieu of a review, I have these links for you:

RCB REWIND:
RCB Novus Ordo: Fun raucous music from The Bloody Jug Band, right down to their stage names. Peter Mulvey returns with a new album, and I spun one tune that channels his inner rock-n’-roll start. Sharon Glassman is releasing a series of EPs with the concept revolving around characters in modern day Hoboken NJ. Sharon uses her creative faculties to the fullest, with experience as musician, and actor.

RCB proper: Robin Batteau last week announced his departure from the duo of Buskin and Batteau. I spun 3 songs from the duo’s last albums that he wrote. Segment 1 kept to a certain flow of songs that just, well, works starting with another new tune by Chase Gassaway. Segment 2: The Miners & The Morning River Band, two folk-rock bands in Philly, shared billing on April 12 in Pitman, NJ. Segment 3: Hurray For The Riff Raff is Alynda Segerra, with her brand of American roots. Her album “Small Town Heroes” is largely ode to New Orleans, which she explored pre- and post-Katrina. Jennie Walker returns to my radar in this segment also. Segment 4 is sparse and acoustic. Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer, now a trio as they are parents to Rosemary, sing Child Ballad 1.
