NEXT SHOW will be published on or about October 3 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
Owing to schedule demands, I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon as
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.

Those media courses I mentioned to you last week will start next week, 3 weeks for one, 7 weeks for another. Can’t wait to get started!
QUARTERLY AIRPLAY CHART announcement to be made on 10/1/12 630pm ET, on the occasion of Radio Crystal Blue’s 12th anniversary! As we begin year number 13, I will reveal on the website who received the most airplay in total and progressive amounts of airplay. This chart will go a long way to determine who will be in my Top 100 list for 2012. That particular chart will be revealed just after Christmas.
I never got to NYC this week. I do plan to go soon tho, mainly because I’m seeking same-day repair for a vital part of of my camera. The camera is still functional in the meantime.
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 Novus Ordo: Memorable songs from this show arose from Add Moss’s long jam “And So We Fall”, the short sharp pop-rock of The Adarna, and the thoughtful country/Americana of The Pawn Shop Saints.
RCB proper: First segment includes official showcase artists that are participating in the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Confence at the end of the month. I also spun John Batdorf, who is participating in some of the private showcases. First airplay in a while from Jaime Michaels here. Honor Finnegan’s ensemble on her album “The Tiny Life” are made up of members of The YaYas and friends. Segment 2: You’ll recall the quoted lyric that headed my playlist posting for the week. That lyric is from Daniel Goodman, heard on his 2011 CD Cold Wind, an album ideal for autumn and winter. Thinking of songs relevant to past memories, I continued the theme with Roger Silverberg and Tom Principato. Tom’s blues led to more of the same by Professor Louie & The Crowmatix, then some modern folk (Spuyten Duyvil, DB Rielly) and another new instrumental from Karen Collins & The Backroads Band. Segment 3: Kosmic Daydream & Fellaheen are part of the upcoming NYC New Music Festival, spanning many venues across Greenwich Village. I also spun another new song from Churchill. Segment 4: Boxcar Lilies & Beggar’s Ride perform October 13th at Boroughs JCC in Westborough MA. Lara Herscovitch & Vance Gilbert perform 9/30 at The Complex Performing Arts Center in Putnam CT for the nationwide Voices United 3-day event. This event is benefiting Americans United for Separation of Church and State. There are concerts being held in all 50 states from 9/28 (today) to 9/30. Gregory Douglass, heard earlier in segment 2, is also participating on 9/30 in VT, as is Louise Taylor in HI, on 9/29. Jean Mann & Mare Wakefield perform at Egan’s Ballard Jam House tonight in Seattle. Final segment kicks off with brand new music by UK’s The Portraits. Their new album is actually being released in early November. The aforementioned was heard in this final segment as well. Anna Dagmar & Cosy Sheridan share billing at a house concert 9/29 in Columbia, MD. Their songs spun here, along with the mighty Anais Mitchell, touch upon childhood memories and some sort of dark past (Cosy’s song is one of a number of songs that explore the myth of Eros & Psyche).
