Radio Crystal Blue permanent archive: April 11, 2004


This 2nd show of my permanent archive sure seems a departure from the shows I do nowadays in 2013. Back in 2004, almost no one did any podcasting, I was beginning to pay royalties through the Web radio network I was a member of, and I certainly spun more major-label artists. It would be in late 2005 that I sharply moved away from shows like this one, and gave indie artits proper exposure ..

The opening segments for several years were a freeform exercise in music: taking music from a song, or an artist in particular in focus, and creating a simple segue, running 6 songs in length. On this show I recalled that Stuart Adamson of Big Country had a birthday that day and so I started with a Big Country tune. Yes, sometimes I would honor artists on the occasion of birthdays or passings (death of one of The Zombies, in the case of this show’s example). .
Airplay Vote 2004 was in focus as well, plus the New Music Sampler, the forerunner of RCB Novus Ordo, debuting brand new material in the rotation.
My TJ Rehmi CD eventually cracked, which is why you don’t hear the opening or closing theme on my show these days (and I haven’t asked for a replacement). The ‘chill’ sound of the music was perfect to set the tone.
A number of artists I gave airplay to have long vanished.
Some of the real finds: Music from the first recordings by Tina Vero, Jodelle, Elisa Peimer, Emily Zuzik can be heard. You can hear me do a commercial read for The C-Note, a music venue I used to help book in NYC’s East Village section. In what became something of an RCB tradition, I did spin some music relevant in some way to Holy Week and Easter.
