NEXT SHOW will be published on or about October 24 and will be available
for about 1 year. Remember, 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.

For the next several weeks I’ll be featuring a Nanci Griffith tribute album released by Huntington NY label Paradiddle Records. Titled “Trouble In The Fields: An Artists’ Tribute To Nanci Griffith”, it contains music from artists you’ve heard on my show plus others of their caliber. The album also contains a narrative by Pete Kennedy. Profits from the sales of this album benefit Mines Advisory Group. More about this album at:

Camera is back, all shiny and new, and totally worth the $32 plus round-trip bus to get to NYC and back. Yes, I trudged to Union Square, did a fair amount of walking, and caught my NYC stride without missing a beat. I put said camera to good use on 10/16 seeing 2 bands at The Grape Room. More on this event at my website, right about here:
PHOTOS from 10/16 are here:
VIDEO of Freddy Hall & The Best Intentions, along with The Flashbulb Fires are here:
Also there are more videos from the 10/11 event at Milkboy Philly elsewhere on

I do audio interviews along with photos, video, and audio of live events.
You can see and hear evidence across my Facebook and YouTube channels, plus
the field recording FeedPlayer.Time, location and expense will be taken into
account before taking on a job. I’ve done this work for free, but that may
change soon. Also, with the video skills I’m learning, I might do more
video oriented work in the future.

10/22: The Blakes perform at Ortlieb’s Lounge
11/3: Katie Barbato, Ginger Coyle, Danielle Miraglia at Sine Studios
11/15 Mr. Hunter returns to the East Coast, and to The Grape Room

RCB Novus Ordo: Kicking off this edition is music from Tora (Fisher), with a most unique
view on songwriting from the heart. We Are The Woods resurfaces with a slightly different lineup but continues blazing musical trails. Marci Geller is a Long Island NY artist with Vance Gilbert doing backing vocals on the song I spun “No Weather Down”

RCB proper: Even before programming this week’s show I knew that it would be full with music by artists who are participating at FAR-West this week…the Western states region of Folk Alliance International. Included within 2 segments worth is new music by Nels Andrews (in the same company of friends like AJ Roach, Raina Rose, et al.), and more new songs by Severin Browne and Chico Schwall. Severin’s tune “To The Light” has co-writing credit with veteran bassist/songwriter Freebo, also part of this special pair of segments. The K’s are breaking up, and for certain. I had followed their career since they began their initial radio campaign in 2005 and it was back in 2006 I had first given airplay to the first of their three albums. I will miss them. There was death and some elements of doom and gloom that came through the lyrics. Some of it happened in real life to them as well. That’s why I spun the songs I chose this week. From the standard segments: Tania & The Revolutionaries will release a new EP soon. Jeneen Terrana & Amateur Blonde share a bill 10/19 in NYC, part of the big CMJ experience. Hudson K & Avi Wisnia likewise with a CMJ show. Gave you some blues/rockabilly in my 2nd proper segment (Brother Joscephus, Vintage Blue, Voodoo Swing, Zac Mac Band). Patti DeRosa shares bills in the next month with Daphne Lee Martin & Beth DeSombre. I had built a whole segment around Rebecca Loebe, who also releases new material. She shares a bill on 10/20 wtih Curtis Becraft and Fred Gillen Jr, and later into November with Jesse Terry and Sarah Blacker (the latter two with new music). Final segment includes new music from Beaucoup Blue (who I saw earlier in October).Honor Finnegan and Anna Dagmar share billing on 11/3. This segment also has songs that feature danger, hope, longing for ease.
Most submissions will be geared toward RCB Novus Ordo.
