PROGRAMMING
Next pair of podcasts will be published late into the week of March 8, 2015 RCB Novus Ordo airs as a separate podcast to highlight songs from brand-new releases in one sitting, along with bio of each artist.
*****
A TON to get to so let’s get going…
3/1 podcasts introduces a newer technical sound to RCB…a new mic! I have a Shure PG-58 cardoid, which replaces an old MiniDisc mic from Sony which served me well for a decade. Before that, I think I was using your basic PC mic.  I bought XLR cables for the occasion, along with a pop filter at the local Guitar Center.  The sound from this podcast is so much cleaner than the ones from the past few months. With it, I approach the show with a greater sense of confidence.
On 3/1 itself I attended a show at a renowned venue, Jazzbones, in downtown Tacoma, on the busy 6th Avenue section. I won’t repeat what I’ve already shared on the website, so please check out the latest postings about the show here:  http://radiocrystalblue.net/2015/03/02/jazzbones-tacoma-3115/  It was great to meet Aradia for the first time, whom I had given airplay to twice this past month. Beyond this, I was enthused from meeting the folks who run Seattle Wave Radio and also Maurice The Fish Records.  There may be some alignment between RCB and these companies.
I’m eager to get to more events in the Tacoma and greater Seattle areas. One limitation with not having a car where I live is that the bus system back home generally stops running after the 9pm hour.  Maybe someone local can suggest some alternatives in location? If you’re wondering, I live a short distance from Northern Pacific Coffee Company, a small café/bar spot that regularly features live music from local/regional talent.
You’ll notice that in the options to hear RCB there is a new way to hear the songs I air.  It’s called Clammr. An app that produces audio soundbites, as long as 18 seconds, in a running time-line, a bit like Twitter. Mass media is already embracing it, so why can’t I?  I’ve submitted  my Clammr feed to be published among the music-related content.  What I decided to do was publish 18 seconds of each song that I gave airplay to in the 3/1/15 podcasts.  Clammr reports that my feed got 1000 plays in the first day!  So I’m continuing the trend and will update the feed with more songs from the 3/8 podcast when that is set.
Clammr is not to replace my show by any means, but it will give some people a better sense as to what makes my airwaves.   Please note that this technology is built for Apple devices: iPod, iPhone, iTunes.   If you’d like to see the feed you can try http://www.clammr.com/player/embed/15732    Or you can request the widget to have embedded on your site or blog.
RECAP
Lynwood Slim passed away last year; he’s the vocalist you hear for one track by the Igor Prado Band, plus the Delta Groove All-Stars.  Delta Groove has brought you music from greats like Bob Corritore and Rod Piazza.  The Burns Sisters are a duo act these day. Annie and Marie explore their Celtic roots on their latest album. As for RCB proper: How about the newest album from James McMurtry, the first one in 6 years? And then son Curtis’s album, back to back, to start the first segment?   Segment 2 reintroduces us to the fresh R&B/soul/folk sound of the amazing Kevin So.  Segment 3 kept it folk, with Segment 4 more songwriter-oriented.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
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 2014-15 release date. I’ll accept material not older than 6 months from the present date.   Any older material will not receive a featured debut; instead, they will be placed within the long rotation and selection process for future shows.
I’m also interested in featuring, great compilation or soundtrack albums\track-for-track, to help tell the story of those albums.
EPK (Electronic press kits) submissions can be sent via one of these companies.
Search for the words Radio Crystal Blue to find my pages there. If I like the EPK, I will then ask for a CD.
CDs that fit in the above rules may be sent to

PROGRAMMING
Next pair of podcasts will be published late into the week of February 22, 2015
RCB Novus Ordo airs as a separate podcast to highlight songs from brand-new
releases in one sitting, along with bio of each artist.
*****
NEW INSTRUMENT to add to the panel will be a Shure microphone.  The book on the old mic I’ve been using since circa 2003 has finally closed.   What mic have I been using all these years? It’s a Sony MiniDisc mic, based for a technology that’s all but a white elephant nowadays. I was using this technology frequently in the early years of RCB, and eventually discovered that handling CDs through a portable CD player was the way to go.   The electret condensor mic from Sony remained faithful.  Over the last few months the quality has faded (so has the Behringer mixer I have, tho another story for another post). I kept getting strange sounds which I attributed to the AA battery inside.  Then I shifted blame onto the ever-fraying wire.   After conversation, and lengthy assistance on the most recent podcasts from DJ Flowerdove, the writing soon appeared on the wall: It’s high time to buy a new microphone.  I am going to Guitar Center for the new instrument, very likely a Shure SM48S-LC. The other candidates is an SM48 cardioid dynamic mic.
RECAP
From 2/8/15:  Highlights on RCB Novus Ordo include the latest from Fred Gillen Jr, whom I consider the hardest working man in folk.   Evan Button, all of 16, reminds me of the time I first saw and heard Brett Dennen, someone quiet, thoughtful and wise beyond his years in songwriting. For the week during Valentine’s Day, I returned to the magnificent Art Of Love: Music Of Machaut album, music and words inspired by the surviving works of 14th century composer Guilliame de Machaut.   On RCB proper: Segment one is mainly country, collecting places such as North Carolina (Jonathan Byrd) and Wisconsin (Peter Mulvey).  Marchan Noelle debuts within the rotation here with a solo acoustic tune.  Electronic rock band Animato gets another airing.  Two ladies from the mid-Atlantic states, Jo Wymer and Rachel Schain, are heard after many moons. Jo’s song “Rearview Mirror” is brand new.   Segment 3 of 3 this week includes an original by Heather Pierson, a song among covers on her latest.
From 2/15/15:  RCB Novus Ordo, historically is the last show to feature the old Sony mic.   A good way to see the mic off as well: Eilen Jewell released a double album, live at The Narrows in Fall River MA from a year ago. Gibrish presents a fine mix of folk from Sweden.  The Levins resurface with a new inspiring album.   On RCB proper, 2 segments presented music from artists that were being showcased during the Folk Alliance conference last week.  Jim Photoglo and Curtis McMurtry are my faves in the 2nd of those segments. Catherine MacLellan became a Juno nominee. New song from Professor Louie & The Crowmatix is on the forthcoming album.   Thanks again must go to DJ Flowerdove, who provide invaluable assistance in getting some of the more technical aspects of the show done.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
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 2014-15 release date. I’ll accept material not older than 6 months from the present date.   Any older material will not receive a featured debut; instead, they will be placed within the long rotation and selection process for future shows.
I’m also interested in featuring, great compilation or soundtrack albums\track-for-track, to help tell the story of those albums.
EPK (Electronic press kits) submissions can be sent via one of these companies.
