NEXT SHOW will be published on or about October 9 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.
Breaking programming news: I will be featuring a concept album for much of October and November. It’s not in my hands yet but I expect it to be here next week. Watch this very space, and on Facebook, for the announcement.
Congrats go to Tom Principato for achieving a #1 ranking in my quarterly airplay chart! www.tomprincipato.com
The full chart, along with prior quarterly charts, the annual top 100, and all-time list are at www.radiocrystalblue.net/chart-page
You’ll notice that 10 artists are mathematically eligible for the title of Artist of the Year. Vance Gilbert could make it a 3rd year in a row. Everyone else, besides Hungrytown would have their first such title. All the shows I do from the weeks of October 6 to December 15, 11 in all, will have the biggest impact.
10/17 @ The New Deck Tavern, Philly
This week I received a nice sampler of material from the folks at Renfro Foods. This was just about the nicest gesture, all from my promoting them via Twitter. their mango habanero salsa is off the chain, as the kids say. @renfrofoods www.renfrofoods.com
Also I must mention coffee alternative Teeccino, which is also a staple at RCB HQ. The folks at Teeccino remind you to go #nocaf www.teeccino.com
Here’s some more RCB LOVE to share: These artists helped promote the show during September:
My one video of The Way Home comes from a CD release event at Sine Studios early in 2012.
These 3 photos from my collection are my favorites depicting TWH:
The annotated notes of this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: The purveyor of ‘tiger pop’, NYC songwriter John Brodeur begins this edition. De Stijl is a French electronic band project. They collaborate with Joy Division/New Order bassist/vocalist Peter Hook on a single from an upcoming album. A welcome back to the RCB airwaves for Joe Nacco, borrowing heavy from 70’s-80’s classic rock.
