NEXT SHOW will be published on or about June 6 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.
*********************************************************************************
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.

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.
