PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about September 25 and will be available for about 1 year. 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 is a separate podcast with 8 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
*****
RCB remains a one-person operation and I must market the show and presence just right to ensure the reach is strong. I am hoping there are enough who listen tho there days I wonder about this. I want to reach more fans of the artists you listen to, and you fans yourselves. When the $ comes, I want to replace my logo with something different and learn how to brand more properly.

Slight programming change: I am aiming to record on Tuesdays and publish Wednesdays. Now that I have the new temp job starting next week, shows will take on this new pattern. Further, RCB Novus Ordo goes back to 8 songs from 6, as the library has increased in recent weeks.

This week is the next to last before I construct the quarterly airplay charts, measuring which artists are receiving the most airplay and exposure from the last 3 months. If you ask me whcih artists are most popular, I’ll point you to the chart. Look for an update to it first thing October. Chart page: http://www.radiocrystalblue.net/chart-page

I was in NYC briefly on Thursday to repair a camera battery, which was stuck in the camera’s body. The night before I had planned to review an event at The Legendary Dobbs. I wasn’t able to get the photos done before the battery got stuck. Granted the battery was rather worn and I was taking a chance at its being further damaged. Thankfully I still have 2 others. So, no review from Thursday, but I did get some photos done in the aftermath of the repair job while in NYC. Kudos to Photo Tech in the Union Square section of the city for being available to do an excellent job! The photos I took on Friday are of The High Line. Full gallery here

I’m currently projecting to revive the social calendar in October after I’m a few weeks into the temp job, reviewing events and such. I might even enroll in another course at PhillyCAM, the city’s public-access network. What I really want to do is get into production instead of taking another course.

A word about ‘sponsors’-’supporters’: There are many individuals and businesses that send me music. The ones that have formally agreed to be sponsors are the ones I’ve listed at the beginning newsletter, and are also the same ones who get mentioned in between music segments. The others don’t get mentioned tho I find it’s impossible not to mention them at times. Here’s a few of those companies:

********
The annotated notes of this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Tom Principato, one of RCB’s top airplay recipients for certain, returns with a new album of guitar-oriented blues. The Tressels, a Philly hard rock band I’ve seen a few times, also returns with the second of a three-album trilogy. I was intrigued by the Sidleys, telling real-life love stories in their songs.

RCB proper: Why not start with a song from the Twin Peaks soundtrack? A definitive autumnal statement kicks this show off. Segment 1: Loretta Hagen & Beaucoup Blue appear at the Hillside Cafe in Nutley NJ, 9/21. Lara Ewen returns with a long-awaited new album, telling semi-autobiographical songs about her most recent life experiences. The CD is encased in a short hardcover book. Why don’t more people release music this way? I really like the roots-rock of David Newbould; you hear a 7-minute roots-rock song from his new album. Segment 2 is augmented by Melissa Greener. She shares billing with the following artists: with Nels Andrews at Osteria, San Francisco on 9/23; then with Freebo and John Batdorf at the Cinema Bar, Culvery City, on 10/6. The Steel Wheels also sharing billing this very weekend in Winfield KS for the Walnut Valley Festival. Si Kahn & The Looping Brothers are part of the festivities. Si’s new album contains a fast-moving bluegrass song that you heard me spin. Gina Holsopple is also part of the festival, and we hear a song from her new (and 8th!) album. Segment 3 ran from songwriter fare to country/roots to modern rock/pop. Belles & Whistles’ “Right Side Of Dirt” is an enduring favorite here. Segment 4 features artists who are part of next weekend’s Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, in Bristol VA/NC, the ‘birthplace’ of country music. A number of seafaring songs are included in the mix, and two referencing Tennessee (James McMurtry, Miss Tess). Besides the festival, Red Molly are sharing stages with Brother Sun on October 5 in Chatham NJ. The Boxcar Lilies & Beggar’s Ride both appear October 4 at the 1st Presbyterian Church, New Haven CT, then October 5 at the Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham MA. Segment 5 was generally folk and folk-rock. Best segue from here contains the theme of tackling life’s big questions (Mark Erelli, Carrie Elkin, Aztec Two Step).

************************************************
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about May 16 and will be available for the
rest of the year.
Owing to schedule demands, I usually aim for noon 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
as many as 8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each
artist.

REVIEW of the showcase I attended at Kung Fu Necktie is available on my website, and more directly at

VIDEO of Cold Roses, Philly rock band who opened the showcase: http://youtu.be/WOxiT7jQric
STATS. The home and archive pages of my main website are doing the best in terms of views. Not surprisingly, the posts reflecting the live show coverage are getting the most hits. So far, the show from 2/10 at The Grape Room has received the most hits, along with my Chart and Bio pages. In the running for photo of the year is my shot of The Tressels: http://radiocrystalblue.net/2012/02/12/the-grape-room-21012/2012_0211rcb0046/
Most of the viewers of my site are in North America, tho there is some love from 11 other countries including Malaysia!Radio Crystal Blue’s link appears on www.indieonthemove.com in the section listing National Radio Contacts! Musicians must follow this website for information on which venues need artists to play, and whose looking for venues.
Also giving some outward RCB love: www.rogersilverberg.com www.promiseofthereal.com
www.stevengravesmusic.com www.jodiroadie.com

FANDALISM: www.fandalism.com/radiocblue Even tho I’m not a musician, I built a presence on the site to encourage conversation. I’ve started to give props to some regional artists as well as dialogue. I like the Facebook interaction through the site. Are you on Fandalism?
DREAM JOB?: It isn’t exactly radio. It’s more like film. I’ll never get away from radio, but I’m beginning to seriously explore the film industry, generally as freelance but also as a long-term career move. Next month I’m taking a class in this area, and we’ll see where it leads.TROUBLESHOOTING: One listener expressed some trouble accessing the show via an old Mac computer. Does anyone have suggestions on better listening to Radio Crystal Blue through a Mac?

In the area of handicapping, I’m exploring different variables to play, tho I only wager money now on the larger races in the year. In case you wondered, I did have the Kentucky Derby winner in advance, for the 2nd year in a row. I had selected I’ll Have Another in the 2nd of three Future Wager pools, and collected more for a win bet than those who waited until race day to bet him. I post almost weekly now to my blog on Tumblr about races and angles. The next feature will focus on Preakness Stakes Day before the big race next week. www.cblue456.tumblr.com for the rest of the story.
Currently on the WISH LIST:
A newer microphone and mixer for the show.

********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Shupikai is NYC bluesman Bob Petrocelli’s instrumental group. New Riders Of The Purple Sage have resurfaced for a new album, out on Woodstock Records, the folks who bring you Professor Louie among others. Jim Allchin is known for his tenure at Microsoft as much as his role as a musician; I spun from his second solo album. Chip Taylor also receives airplay here. Chip is the composer of very famous songs made popular by Janis Joplin, Linda Ronstadt, Jimi Hendrix, and others. A great country/rock success story all his own. I spun the bonus track from his latest CD, which memorializes victims of a gunfire massacre last summer in Oslo and Utoya in Norway. Marc Berger’s album “Ride” celebrates his love of the American West. Listen for Eric “Roscoe” Ambel on backing vocals on the track I spun. The incredible Anais Mitchell is also part of this show as I aired a track from her new album, her first independently-released album, in fact.

RCB proper: Growing up in Brooklyn in the mid-80′s I fondly remember many a car radio blasting “Brass Monkey” tho I had little idea as to who were making that racket. Well I soon found out about the Beastie Boys and really took to the Check Your Head album all the way up through Hello Nasty, which I consider their magnum opus. Most people either love or hate Paul’s Boutique. I am not crazy about it but you can’t deny the beats they used. Meanwhile, I memorialized Adam Yauch spinning a few tracks from the group’s discography. Shambala features the chanting of Buddhist monks. I would close the show with “Namaste” off of Check Your Head, a moving tune with MCA on the mic. Segment 1: Sci-Fi Romance returns with a concept album about the John Henry legend. Stayed in a country/rock/jam/spirit vibe for the rest of this segment. The Kennedys, and Greg Smith & The Broken English performed at City Winery on May 8 for the release of the compilation “Occupy This Album” benefiting the Occupy movement. Segment 2: Spun another from the new album by Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, plus recently released music by Antigone Rising and Lisa Bianco. Both artists share billing at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park NJ on May 11 (yikes, that’s tonight!). Segment 2 was mostly blues into rock, plus brand new music by Lisa Biales, sharing vocal duties with songwriter/producer EG Kight. Spun music of 4 songwriters who are performing at the Music In The Vineyard Festival, Belvidere NJ, May 19. Segment 4 kicks off with 2 very similar sounding songs by M’Balia and Roger Silverberg. Listening to the chords in the beginning. There were elements of bodies of water in just about all the songs. Carrie Elkin and Danny Schmidt continue to tour many shows, and their songs finish out this segment.
