the DAILY (auto-generated online newspaper with selected keywords and
mentions from social media, updated each evening):
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about February 13 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
possiblethereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 10 (ten) songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of

THE LATEST: Beyond any news that normally concerns the program besides informing you about the artists you hear on the show, an immediate concern has arisen.

As I type this, I’m somewhat in debt with my bills. That debt has now included my monthly rent. I’m without work and have not worked in months. There may be a financial lifeline that was promised to me months ago. If it comes through,it buys a little time. If not, I can be staring at eviction proceedings soon.This show must have a home. I must have a home. I’ve been without a paid job for months. The show itself, despite its sponsorship does not actively generate income. Folks, I intend for this change. Here’s how:

This week I installed a PayPal button at the home page and the main front page where the latest posts are.Already, two sizeable donations have come in from two listeners, and I’m truly thankful Your support goes toward paying my bills and helping me to continue to live here and maintain the service of bringing you the latest in indie/underground/ito you all.Unless there is a fair exchange in place ($, barter), I am no longer freely exchanging valuable info re referalls or bookings; likewise for live show reviews, which I’ve documented on my site for 2 years.

Can you imagine an extended period of time without Radio Crystal Blue? You’d likely miss out on hearing when some of your favorite indie artists are playing and maybe some facts about the album that you never knew. I convey this on my show every week between segments. Now, how many other stations or podcasts do that, and maintain a level of artistry within the segments?
Please consider donating the amount of your choice if you love my show and care to listen. Even if you’re not a fan,at least consider sharing the wealth by sharing this new. My work with this show is too precious and vital to let go of or be rid of.
Also: I continue to seek work within and outside the music industry and am continuing to remain hopeful and resourceful.
This is a simple concise plea to you, my listeners and fans. It doesn’t matter the size of the donation but it does matter to the life of this show, my life’s work, that you make a difference in seeing Radio Crystal Blue continue.

If material is from 2011, it will be added to RCB’s loose rotation instead.
Digital is acceptable if media is not available in other formats.
Artists are also advised to add my email address to their general email
Be sure whatever physical package you sent is of reasonable length. I have a
residential address, so packages can’t be too dense or require a signature.

artists on their body of work and the completeness of the press kit.
