RCB Novus Ordo airs as a separate podcast to highlight songs from brand-new releases in one sitting, along with bio of each artist.
In addition to the standard fare, CD FOCUS will return to bring track-by-track featuring of songs by these compilation/concept albums:
Link Of Chain, A Songwriters Tribute To Chris Smither
The Grateful Dead:  Wake Up To Find Out live concert from 3/29/1990.
If you’ve read my posts on Facebook, I kept you abreast of my half-week journey via Greyhound from South Philadelphia to downtown Tacoma, arriving on Thursday 10/16.  The experience was harrowing, as I had some trouble with the boxes that contained all my worldly possessions.  The boxes would eventually be shipped from Columbus OH to Tacoma, and it was a matter of waiting for them to appear.    I enjoyed seeing the scenery of the Western States, especially in Oregon, Colorado and Utah.   I only wish I had packed my point-and-shoot so that I could capture the experience.   In the process of picking up the boxes, I would lose my laptop bag, which was carrying most of my identification, so I’m not exactly out of the woods yet in getting all settled in.
I am living with a couple, Tim and Lora Nichols (the latter whom you may know better as DJ Flowerdove) who are fans of my show and they have successfully figured out the technical aspects of getting the podcast set up.  I had forgotten the actual settings and where the wires connect but now all appears well.     Now the connecting to public-relations people, artists and their managers is starting.  I aim to record a new podcast early next week, when given the appropriate time to do so.
I have added a 2nd phone number, and have officially changed my physical address. All other contact information remains the same.
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. 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 album (see above).
