STAT BLOG (updated):
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about April 4 and will be available for about 4 months beyond. 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.
You’ll also hear:
CD FOCUS:”Little Blue Egg” by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. This is a disc with 11 long-lost recordings found by Tracy 2 years ago.
I will spin 3 tracks from this compilation.
I attended 2 shows in the last week. One was The Way Home at Sine Studios, another was Kirsten Opstad at Community Cultural Exchange. Both shows are reviewed at

RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of my shows.
On RCB Novus Ordo: Standout artists from this edition include Swinging Steaks who’ve shared stages with a ton of modern rock bands; veteran songwriter Jon McAuliffe who has just released his first solo CD (I spun an ode to Kerouac), and the legendary Aztec Two-Step, from a compilation of their songs titled “Cause And Effect”.

RCB proper:Just about the longest show I’ve done since the December holidays. Debuted another artist on the UK label Intelligent Audio, the veteran DJ Nigel Hayes with some disco house to start off this show. Segment went from blues (Bob Corritore, Eilen Jewell,) to more songwriter-oriented material, including new albums from Loretta Hagen and Clarence Bucaro. Segment 2 was the first of 2 where I featured artists performing in Cape May this weekend. Among them were The Way Home and their new CD “On So Thin A Line”. Also a new album from Meghan Cary, who debuted her CD on my birthday (1/31) Segment 3 includes Song Dogs & The Nightjar, a great classic-style rock band local to Philly, and Bound By Substance, who are part of a multi-venue event on Long Island to benefit the Long Island Crisis Center. This takes place on 3/31 Segment 4 is where I began with the matthew show (listen for “invocation” which precedes “Half A Man”. I know it’s not on the playlist. That’s why you’re encouraged to tune in and hear it!). The YaYas and Honor Finnegan (who is backed by The YaYas on her album) share billing at a house concert in Manhattan on 3/31. Segment 5 focused again on Cape May; included is music by Wilmington DE’s Rachel Schain and another new one from Katie Pearlman. Closing segment incldues music by New Englanders Craig Sonnenfeld and Patti DeRosa, who are part of a benefti for local veteran at the Holliston (MA) VFW post, taking place tonight (3/30). The aforementioned Jon McAuliffe also on the bill.
