PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about May 1 and will be available
for about 1 year. I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon as
possible thereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 10 songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of
each.
*****************************
So I got the new mouse, an new CD player, and life continues to evolve, the vibrations to be raised. Had some minor health issues that seem to persist this week, and I’m taking life somewhat easier while pursuing work. I’m still averaging one job interview per week. I haven’t attended live events in a month but I’ll make an effort to do so before 4/30. I already have 2 events to attend in May, and I’ll give you more info during my next podcast.

Remember to send donations to RCB via the PayPal button at the home page.

Sending RCB love to those promoting the good word of my show these past 7 days:

 
For artists reading this: Be sure to add my email to your non-regional email list.

I plan to feature an album in a new CD Focus segment, in which case I’ll be spinning the contents, track-for-track. I do this for outstanding compilation and concept albums. In this new case, the album is the final one by the artist. If you have (or know of) a great album I should feature in this manner, send a message.

********
RCB rewind:

RCB Novus Ordo: Great quality as usual with this program, tho particularly so with the soul/folk hybrid sound of Chastity Brown. Alex Kelly, whom I interviewed earlier this year, is debuted, as well as The Parachuting Apostles, a Philly band hot on the rise. Lucas Rotman’s band Melodic Miners also debuts their newest album.
RCB proper: Reflecting on the passing of Richie Havens, I spun not only a tune from his final album (released in 2008) but also a tune from two of his contemporaries, the sainted Dave Van Ronk (traditional tune from an album containing rarities), and Vance Gilbert, who opened for Richie a number of times. Segment 1: Yes it was time to get holy in this segment but also somewhat secular, bridging earth to heaven; such was the theme here. Ashley McBryde is back on my radar. Her song “Holy Water” starts off with part of “Amazing Grace” and then turns into something much more contemporary. Elisa Peimer recently performed her first show with band in about a year. Segment 2: Alycea & The X Isles return to my spotlight as well. They, and Jean Mann are among many performing at the Tuscon Folk Festival on May 4. Segment 3: Peter Galperin returns with his first album in 2 years. I was positively amused with Chip Taylor & The New Ukranians and the song “Be Kind” which is spun here. I hear there’s a new album in the works by Chip alongsides. Carsie Blanton also has a new EP which you can hear me debut on this podcast. Segment 4: Very reflective in nature, starting with the aforementioned Jean Mann, plus Dan & Faith, both with songs about dreams. Ellis is back with a 2-CD set, from a live concert recorded at the White Bear Unitaritan Universalist Church in Mahtomedi MN. It’s arranged so you hear enough of the witty stage banter beforehand. Closing up is Andrew McKnight & Beyond Borders, with a song about a Montana town from their live album, recorded at the Franklin Parks Arts Center, Purcelville, VA.

PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about February 3 and will be available for
about 1 year. Remember, even if you miss hearing a show the week I record,
you can always find it within the FeedPlayer’s archive of older shows. Owing
to schedule demands, I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon as
possiblethereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 10 (ten) songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of
each.

LIVE EVENT COVERAGE: I’m planning to cover 1 or 2 events a month in Philly.I
do writeups of shows on my website, and share most photos on Facebook, plus
video on YouTube.
*****************************
INTERVIEW: I interviewed electronic-rock artist Alex Kelly on Skype this week. This 25-minute interview covered the gamut about her recent tours, her approach to music, the making of her exquisite video “Catalyst” and more Hear the interview in my Field Recording FeedPlayer at www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalbluefield which has share/stream/download options. It’s also linked at the home and archive pages of my website.

Celebrated birthday #43 (yes I count them all) pretty quietly. 400 of you sent me nice messages on Facebook and just a few on Twitter did likewise. Thanks so much. I don’t exactly know what my year ahead will be like. I recall making goals at this time of the year and seeing many of the smaller ones come to pass. This year ahead, I want to build some income streams, and somehow find a way to get all the bills and debts paid. This may prove to be my most challenging year.
Also continuing to have slight stomach issues, enough to keep me from committing to some things. A few folks have extolled the virtues of aloe vera juice….What is also helping is regularly meeting and meditating with a marvelous New Age-ish group in Fishtown every month for 2 years.I’ve signed a 1-year lease to stay in my place in Philly. I honestly don’t know if I’ll make it through the 1 year but my intuition feels this is where I am to be. I do not have an exit strategy in the event something happens.

Assuming my health and finances are in great shape by mid-March, I might go to a certain conference/festival that March. As my friend Elaine Silver says, “Nothing is certain until the check is cashed”…so nothing to be said until I’m absolutely sure.
SHORTY AWARDS:The Shorty Awards honor the best of short-form content across
many expressions. This is the 5th annual awards. See who else have won in
years past here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shorty_Awards You can vote for
me to win the acclaimed Shorty Award in the area of podcasting. Just surf
to www.shortyawards.com/radiocblue then tick the dropdown area to select the
category ‘podcaster’ (‘music’ is the default; this should be changed!).RCB REVIEW (the annotated version):
RCB Novus Ordo: About is a band with 4 EPs being released over the course of 1 year, each one representing the 4 Noble Truths of Buddhism. Flowerland’s EP is a re-release from the early 90s. Peaches & Crime presents neo-vaudeville-like sounds. Steven Graves returns with a new inspirational album.
RCB proper: Garrison Starr kicks off Segment 1. Don Gallardo has Neilson Hubbard in tow on “One Of These Days” on his new album. Neilson has worked with Garrison on multiple albums. A bit countrified this first segment was. Among the 2 new music samplers: Say hello to Ethan Farmer, a virtuoso on bass, who recently has toured with Lionel Richie on his Tuskegee Tour. Tip of the iceberg, folks. Motion Pictures with a fun pop rock song. Renowned sister act Moore & Moore give us some classic country. Brian Rogers Band with a catchy rock song here also. Segment 2: Aqua Cherry with the interesting rhythms on their song “Ripoff”. Wormburner’s “Peekskill” is another great road song, set during winter. I concluded a seven week long focus on the music of The 1861 Project. Segment 3: Rebecca Loebe & Raina Rose have played a monthly residency at the venerable Threadgill’s in Austin. Songs for the sad and downtrodden in this segment, notably from Evangenitals. Final segment includes an ode to Janis Joplin and a couple of political songs. Now that you’ve read about it, give it a listen!
