Latest Radio Crystal Blue and RCB Novus Ordo podcasts were posted 11/18/18
Shows are typically published 3 times a month.
CD Focus segment introduces outstanding concept and compilation albums, aired track-for-track. The latest ones are these:
Michael Martin Murphey “Austinology: Alleys Of Austin”
and record label Putumayo’s “Ska Around The World”
I plan to reveal a narrative of the program’s history by late 2020. I’ll have a page for each year, telling the story of RCB through the music I aired. It will require audio as well as anecdotal information. Contact me if you have stories or media.
I’m also planning a third show that will focus on artists that are part of the earlier history of the show, whom haven’t been heard since.
Most shows since 2014 are permanently archived at www.archive.org
