continually masters the art of freeform radio, with music from top indie,
underground and touring artists from all across the Web and the Earth at
HOW TO LISTEN:
1: at http://www.radiocrystalblue.net/home , right-click on the link titled Click
for PopUp Feed Player. That will display the audio player as a page on its
own. Find the show you want to hear, click the Details tab to download the
show or the play button on top to stream. There’s also an RSS feed button
and a number of ways to share the audio player
2: My podcast provider: http://www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalblu Shows from these
players are kept on the server for about 1 year.
There are changes afoot re BigContact. Read below.

are kept in perpetuity. Just look for Radio Crystal Blue and Radio Crystal
Blue Novus Ordo, then the date. I use the Sunday date of the week.
4: Stitcher for iPod, iPhone or Android:
Radio Crystal Blue is free to share and listen, in accordance with Creative
Commons License 4.0, full attribution, non-derivative, non-commercial.
Next pair of podcasts will be published late into the week of January 11,
RCB Novus Ordo airs as a separate podcast to highlight songs from brand-new
releases in one sitting, along with bio of each artist.
CD FOCUS segment will feature more from this album: The Grateful Dead:
Wake Up To Find Out live concert from 3/29/1990. http://www.dead.net
Firstly, I did get word from BigContact’s founder, Nat Guy, that the company
is looking beyond podcast publishing and to something different with the
extant FeedPlayer. This is disappointing for me, as I’ve relied on the
company for years for podcasting. Now I’m shopping for a new RSS home. If
you know of a good, reliable and affordable service that publishes podcasts,
please let me know at once. If and when the company moves in that new
direction, I’ll still be able to publish shows using http://www.archive.org
Looking back on last week podcasts I continued the “Twin Peaks” theme in the
very beginning, along with a few choice songs with settings in winter. In
focus for a few segments were artists performing at 2 different folk
festivals on the same weekend, in Florida! Brother Sun, Hardin Burns and
Gathering Time are some of the headliners in the South Florida Folk
Festival. Along with spinning another great new tune from Jonathan Byrd, I
recited a full essay of his re present day America, the content of which
reached Huffington Post. Read here for details. I love Camela Widad’s tune
“Undefended Love” in the same segment. Also brand new is the latest from
Mare Wakefield and Nomad Ovunc, along with another new album by Heather
Pierson and a piano-based version of “Junkies”. On RCB Novus Ordo, you hear
2 songs from each artist, including Art Podell, whose folk roots started as
the boom of the genre hit America in the late 50s.
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 been
released within the last 6 months of my next show’s publishing week (week of
1/11/15) 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).
