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.

Lots to look forward to this week as I will be making up for much lost time, attending 3 music events. I’ll do my best to cover these shows and review right on my website.
I was at an orientation at PhillyCAM.org tonight in Center City, exploring the wide world of public-access TV, and to see where I might fit in. Workshops are beginning in late summer, with some free workshops very soon to be announced. I am finding an inner note sounding when I think about working the equipment. I desire to be a filmmaker, taking some of the work and ideas I’ve done in the past (and present) and bridging them into this medium. I’d also, ideally, like to further my study into photography. Along with exploring the career of community media I’m continuing to seek work matching my varied background. Typing this, I’m reminded that I have 2 resumes that should be linked onto my site. I will figure out how to do this shortly. It goes on the list.
Not for nothing I was at the opening of the latest Shake Shack branch, as it debuted in Philly at Sansom and 20th. Photos of the experience and some landscape photos of the area at
I revived my online ‘paper’ at http://paper.li/radiocblue/1333586729 It’s a good read, generated by keywords of subjects that fascinate me most and also pulls in URL’s from my social media feeds.

I will be attending at least one more show before the end of the month.
********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Eric “Roscoe” Ambel and Phil Cimino help contribute to the roots rock sound of DL Marble. Venice Sunlight is an earnest, honest, enjoyable duo to listen for in Philly. Darius Lux brings the vintage R&B and the funk. Moot Davis and Penny Ney with some contemporary nods to classic country as well.

RCB proper: Segment 1 started off with Daniel Goodman and Paul Sachs, both of whom share gigs in NYC this week. Paul didn’t win at Kerrville for the New Folk competition; nevertheless you should hear this album “Oil Town” which continues to grow on me. Flo Anito, My Pet Dragon and Andy Hawk (and those Train Wreck Endings) are part of Celebrate Fairfax, June 8-10. Segment 2: Started a run of steampunk and modern folk. Spuyten Duyvil and Roosevelt Dime are part of XFEST in Telford PA on 6/9. Matt Turk, The Chapin Sisters, and Putnam Smith all perform at the Clearwater Great Hudson River Revival, the largest annual environmental celebration in the US. Matt’s tune is a Taj Mahal cover. Segment 3 includes another song from Ashley McBryde. It could just be my weathered radio ears, but her song “Whole Damn Thing” sounds an awful lot like Garrison Starr’s 90′s hit “Superhero”. Give a listen and compare. More songwriter fare in segment 4, featuring intimate songs from duos Adler & Hearne and Buskin & Batteau (listen for the warm Hammond). The Nields, sisters Nerissa and Katryna, have released a new album, which I debuted for you. It oriented segment 5 into songs about home. Continued the theme with the beloved Boxcar Lilies, who share personnel in Dave Chalfant. “Feels Like Home” is a Jenny Goodspeed composition. The Boxcar Lilies share stage with Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem, performing a benefit concert on 6/17 in Northampton MA. Piano and guitar fuel jazzy songs by both Jon Regen (busy touring in Europe) and Allison Scola. Allison performed at Caffe Vivaldi in NYC on June 6, her first solo show in 2 years. Spun another one from Marc Black’s latest CD. Closed with Beth DeSombre (Dave Chalfant on her album too) and Shanna Underwood, who are in the round with a new Kerrville New Folk winner, Alicia McGovern on 6/9 (tonite!) in Portland, ME.
