THE VISION: https://radiocrystalblue.net/2013/07/28/my-personal-and-radio-vision/
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about November 20 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 8-10 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
It’s also the final week I will debut music from “Esperanza: Songs From Jack Kerouac’s ‘Tristessa’. Have you enjoyed this music as much as I have aired it? If you like where the music takes you, get the novella itself. It will fill in the gaps. My favorite I’ve aired thus far is “O City Lights” by Gregory Alan Isokov.
ARCHIVE PROJECT was posted earlier this week. I’m seeking whole and partial editions of RCB shows that you may have recorded in the past. Yes it’s OK to record my show, so long as you don’t try to profit from it, or pass it off as a whole show. Truth in advertising, people. And, there’s that Creative Commons license I have on it, which you can read about here:
What I want to do with any existing content recorded before 2012 is let it be a permanent fixture at my website, and also at the Internet Archive and on Big Contact. I’d like for people to recognize how this show has unfolded over time and to recognize the up-and-comers who are headlining these days.
I have, at arm’s length, while I type, some shows from early 2006. This might prove fruitful. I didn’t save a lot of shows to disc and all my older stuff got damaged thanks to the loss of the older hard drive. And the move took a lot of CDs away as well. So I ask you to help fill in the spaces. I’d like there to be a representative amount, 2 or 3 albums from 2002 to 2011. Got something we should hear? Email me. Large files can be sent via hightail (the old yousendit) but give me the heads-up first.
RCB Novus Ordo: Switchback are back again with their 2nd release of 2013, this a live album “American Roots & Celtic Soul”. Their songwriting exchange reminds me a bit of Aztec Two-Step. Childsplay is a trio-led ensemble, with a host of fiddlers, a fiddlemaker in the group,and assorted instruments alongsides. Tempo Plastico brings you pop-rock from Brazil. Being a Kerouac fan, I chose the song “Kerouac”.
