THE VISION I hold for my life and this program:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about June 2 and will be available for about 1 year. You will hear music in several segments of top indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 6-8 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
I’m grateful to have the opportunity to broadcast every week and publish some awesome music for you to be aware of. I’m intending to continue this for as long as I can.
This week is especially trying as I’m continuing to further my personal vision while also figuring whete to find income. I’m looking at some ‘new thought’ material and heeding advice from one such person who encourages a new paradigm of thought. I resonate with the information and am taking some steps toward this new vision.
Meanwhile the current reality requires I pay some bills and the money is at a new low. I want to believe there is more coming, but I’m not sure when or how or how much. I’m risking eviction again in the short-term unless things change fast.
RCB Novus Ordo this week included NYC-based rock-oriented songwriters Steve Conte & Mike Rimbaud. I last Steve with his band The Crazy Truth when they played at John Varvatos’ gallery, right at the very locale where CBGB once stood. Sugar In The Gourd is a supergroup of female songwriters. Kerry Patrick Clark returns to my airwaves with his latest album, and an amusing ode to his kids.
RCB proper: This being the first unofficial summer week, I began my somewhat occasional summer segues to start the show that segues from synth to dub. Segment 1: Miss Tess & The Talkbacks & Roosevelt Dime shares billing along with a number of other groups at the Big Backyard BBQ & Music Fest. This occurs June 15 at the New York Botanical Garden. Kagero & Bern & The Brights both appeared at a 2 day music festival in Montclair NJ, celebrating Tierney Tavern’s 80th anniversary. We hear from the soulful sounds of Winslow, checking in from Cleveland. Segment 2 is rock oriented all through, including my favorite song by My Pet Dragon, a tune by Italy’s V-Device, and another new song from Greg Smith & The Broken English. Segment 3: starts off with another summer song courtesy of Sarah Rabdau & Self-Employed Assassins. Kerri Powers & Rachael Sage were part of the Hartfolk Festival in Hartford CT this past weekend. I aired brand new music from the mother-daughter duo Belles & Whistles. Final segment: Davey O & Lou Dominguez perform at Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse in Washington DC, June 7. I aired new music from Dan & Faith here also.

I focus on CDs as opposed to downloads, though I make exceptions in the event of albums that are digital releases only. Music must have a 2014 release date or not released otherwise before August 2013. All new albums debut on RCB Novus Ordo; on rare exception, some debut on Radio Crystal Blue proper.
I’m also interested in featuring, great compilation or soundtrack albums track-for-track, to help tell the story of those albums.
