THE VISION I hold for my life and this program:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about July 11 and will be available for about 1 year. You will hear music in several segments of top touring indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.
RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 6 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
THE LATEST: I continue to seek work tho relented a bit as I put more emphasis on this here radio program along with my growing sports/stats project at Idealistic Stats. A few people have sent donations; thanks to each of you! I am staying centered as best as I can with spiritual text and belief that I resonate with.

One person in particular that i resonate with is a gentleman named Derek Rydall
Owing to the time allotted to other projects and the time to seek work, I haven’t published my quarterly charts yet. This is work that takes the better part of a day, and it takes real dedication to get it all done. For the time being, I’m not attending shows or traveling for other purposes outside of work. At a time when I am concerned about where my next dollar comes from, I am giving the charts less priority than the show itself.

RCB Novus Ordo: The orchestral folk sound of Esthema kicks off this edition. Dog Society, whom were on hiatus for a number of years, reconvened recently. I chose “No Reason” for no real reaon at all, and I actually love the production on it. Paul Sachs has a new album as well. “Jesuscandle” reminds me just a bit of that song Paul Newman sang in “Cool Hand Luke”. Maybe it’s just me. Alan Barrington regularly performs around the Carolinas. His new album is less pure songwriter-oriented and more of a country blues direction. “Country Blues” in fact is the actual title.

RCB proper: Upon the death of soul survivor Bobby Womack, I chose a few songs that represent the past, present and future of music through his unmistakable voice. I was never really into Gorillaz but once they gathered a live presence on stage I gave them more credibility. I didn’t know that Bobby had sang on two songs; we hear one of them, plus a dazzling James Taylor cover along with an older tune from the 80s. Several segments of music included artists with newer music and who are part of this year’s Red Wing Roots Festival (Steel Wheels, who run the fest, Yarn, and Loves It!) New Bedford Folk Festival (RUNA, Vance Gilbert) and the Green River Festival (Heather Maloney & Darlingside, Hurray For The Riff Raff). Heather shares billing with Anais Mitchell on July 19 at The Strand Theater, Rockland, ME. Final segment: Sloan Wainwright & The Levins were at the venerable Towne Crier Cafe on July 5

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 October 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.
