NEXT SHOW will be published on or about August 8 and will be available for
the rest of the year. It’s true. Even if you miss hearing a show the week I
record, you can always find it within the FeedPlayer’s archive of older
shows.
Owing to schedule demands, I usually publish on 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
8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each artist.
*******************
On 7/31 Ariel Hyatt, founder of Ariel Publicity hosted her 6th Cyber PR Digital Press Conference. I was unable to attend this one. I had volunteered to interview several clients through Skype. Alas, something with my microphone and Skype did not jibe (the mic still works with my recording equipment tho). At a loss, it was decided that I’d send my prepared questions to those clients and Ariel would interview them. And so it was.

The interviews went very well, and the audio is preserved in my field recording FeedPlayer, also available with my standard FeedPlayer when you hear my shows. There is a different webpage devoted to this player: www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalbluefield
RSS: www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalbluefield/rss
Same stream/share/download options too!
The interviews were with NYC singer-songwriter Jenn Summers www.jennsummersmusic.com and CT songwriter Jesse Terry www.jesseterrymusic.com
A third interview was undertaken with another but the audio file was corrupted, as I understand.

I’ll be contributing further interviews with other Ariel Publicity clients over the next several months.

*********************
RCB REVIEW:
RCB Novus Ordo: I saw M’Balia in June at LOVE Park here in Philly. After her show, she gave me 2 new albums. You heard me spin one track from one of those albums. Also you’ll hear vintage rockabilly from Voodoo Swing and cool jazz from Project Grand Slam among the 8 songs I played on this edition.

RCB proper: Two of this week’s music segments were devoted to artists peforming at the Schwenksville Folk Festival. OK..it’s NOT that title. It’s the Philadelphia Folk Festival. But it’s not anywhere near the City That Loves You Back. Definitely needs a name change. Politics aside, some of the artists you’ll hear include Bovine Social Club (debuted on RCB Novus Ordo last month), HuDost, and Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. Dave is far away and long gone, tho the release of their CD “little blue egg” arrives on both the anniversary of his death and his birthday month in short order. Segment 1: All you need are unique first names, preferably female, and you know the music. Eilen. Garrison, Anais. The quality doesn’t get any better. Not to be outdone, Megan Slankard kicks off the segment with a great driving song. Renee Wahl with a magnificent country song with all my favorite guitars in it. Segment 2 presents more new music from both Tall Tall Trees, and Professor Louie & The Crowmatix. Segment 3: Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem, along with The Sweetback Sisters are sharing billing at the Heath Fair in Heath, MA, 8/17. Danielle Miraglia and Katie Barbato are right here in Philly on 8/4. Jessi Robertson returns to performing, sharing billing with Lara Ewen at The American Folk Art Museum, in the Lincoln Square sector of Manhattan. This event is today. TODAY. Hurry up. There’s a compilation CD being released celebrating the music of those who have performed on their “Free Music Fridays” concert series. Segment 4: More new old country music from Karen Collins & The Backroads Band, along with Patricia Silverberg. Marianne Kesler also returned to performing this week in OH.

*********************************************************************************
Firstly, I must acknowledge the death of a radio hero, Pete Fornatale, who was one of several inspirations for Radio Crystal Blue many years ago. My condolences are posted elsewhere on the Web. I hope that I can make as much of an impact in people’s lives as he did. I will have a dedicated audio segment focusing on his influence at some point in the next show.
Apart from from learning about music (and radio) from Pete’s example, news came down that Kiss-FM, an R&B/hip-hop programmed station in NYC is also biting the dust, with sports programming taking over.   I have good memories of hearing music in the mid-80′s on this station. It will be missed.  I don’t mind sports programming, so long as it’s sports itself and not so much sports talk.  Still, one more station without music programming takes away more memories from all of us (not to mention royalties).

Fandalism is an invite-only social media website that’s just appeared on the greater Web radar. I’ve just joined tho I’m not exactly certain of its goal outside of friending/following/liking. Initially I see a lot of musicians and producers worldwide, not just the US contingent. http://www.fandalism/radiocblue

The Discussion group is kinda dormant.  Feel free to discuss RCB at http://www.facebook.com/groups/273953255983866/

I’m planning to go to a showcase at The Fire on Saturday. I don’t know any of the artists. That’s the point. I come to be educated and entertained.  I’ll have some pics of the event next week.  I go to about 3-4 shows a month to do photos/video.
I haven’t had interview requests in a while but I wouldn’t mind doing a few.  I do have to upgrade my recorder tho.
My computer is flying strong, tho it still has some issues with audio quality.  I’m pretty confident it’s recording in stereo but my recording software seems to think it’s mono. It could well be the mixer I’m using. For you gearheads, I have a Behringer Eurorack UB802. It might need to be replaced. Anyone with ideas on this?

A simple question for you to answer: What does Radio Crystal Blue mean to you?

********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Songwriter-activist Lara Herscovitch returns with a new album. Some of the songs focus on the prison population in the US. Arthur Nasson has a new exuberant album that’s all over the musical map.   Adler & Hearne’s new album was recorded at Eddie’s Attic in GA.  Ronstadt Generations are 2 generations of musicians. Michael J. is Linda’s brother; he is joined by sons Michael G. and Petie on the CD “Lulo”, full of music inspired by life experience in the Southwest across 5 generations.

RCB proper: With the passing of Levon Helm of The Band, I memorialized him with 2 songs to kick off this show.  First was Professor Louie and The Crowmatix, whose history is well intertwined with The Band’s. “Restless Islands” features Levon on mandolin.   “Life Is A Carnival” is also covered by The Crowmatix, tho I opted to spin the original here.    the matthew show recorded a song at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis back in February, and this kicks off segment 1. Following this up was a song similar in rhythm and vibe by Deborah Lombardi. She and Josh Joffen performed at a new venue, 89 North, in Patchogue (LI), NY last night.  How about two songs with tuba? Jim Boggia and Tracy Bonham feature this instrument. Both appear at Rockwood Music Hall (NYC) on 4/30.  Within segment 2: My Pet Dragon and Levee Drivers are part of the Launch Music Festival in Lancaster PA tonight. Segment 3: Spun from the new album by DC’s Karen Collins & The Backroads Band, then following up with other Americana/folk groups. Segment 4 began with some statements about American life (Aztec Two-Step, Vance Gilbert).
