PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about April 10 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 8 songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of
each.

RCB Quarterly Airplay Chart was published on Tuesday. Vance Gilbert continues to rank high on the quarterly charts. Brother Sun, on the strength of their new album “Some Part Of The Truth” debuts at #4. The Steel Wheels, who have just sent me their latest, are at #17. The chart is the best snapshot I can provide outside of playlists and audio files for you to see what I’ve been spinning the most as of late. Full details at
https://radiocrystalblue.net/chart-page/

IDEALISTIC SPORT is my newest podcast, fully unrelated to music. If you hunger for out-of-the-box opinion, a unique take on sport stats, even insightful predictions, this new show is for you. Content will focus mainly on minor and individual sports instead of teams for the most part. I’m recording the charter program today (Friday) and will have that available in a new FeedPlayer URL. As you know, FeedPlayers are positively viral. Access the shows at www.bigcontact.com/idealisticsport along with overlighting blog posts, which will be the final word of all predictions and summaries, at www.idealisticstats.wordpress.com

If you are a musician that would like to submit to this program for use as intro and outro segment, or to fill in the spaces between segments, just send a message.
 
Got a message from a Philly-oriented filmmaker who plans to do a unique documentary about musician Kenn Kweder. Billed at once as a madman, a genius, even “The Mayor Of South Street”, his story goes back some 40 years. He is still actively performing in the Philly area. I imagine that he had a big underground following even in the 70s; ideally I would have spun his music even in those halcyon days, perhaps alongside folks like Dave Rave from Canada. Director John Hutelmeyer has begun a crowdfunding campaign; already the film has received 12% funding toward its goal. You can do your part by watching the trailer for the campaign and sending some $ their way at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-kenn-kweder-documentary

********
RCB rewind:
RCB Novus Ordo notably debuted Reverend Freakchild this week. Liner notes suggests some rather tall tales from start to finish, even suggesting the man passed away 8 years ago. The tales really are that tall. He is still among us, and his take on traditional tunes are new and fresh. Stephen Lee Rich (@OldYodeler on Twitter) returns with a new album. Lubbock, TX’s Jenni Dale Lord makes a great Americana debut here as well.
RCB proper:Segment #1: from rockabilly to modern folk and back we went, including new tunes from Sassparilla out of the Pacific Northwest, who have their own stamp on roots music. Segment #2: Spun another from South Korea electronic rock band Love X Stereo, alongside more synth from my favorite song by Blue Sour. Segment #3: Speaking of Brother Sun, I love their take on U2’s “In the Name Of Love”. Folks, you know I don’t care for covers all that much except to understand where an artist is coming from. But, if it must be done, it should be finely obscured so as to gently hint to the original, and to make it further original. The trio do it very well on their new album. Chris Riffle and Brian Dolzani are taking part in this weekend’s HartFolk Festival in West Hartford, CT. Songs relevant to home were predominant in this segment (Virginia in particular, courtesy of Andrew McKnight and Rani Arbo). Segment 4: Songs took a rather utopian and altruistic tone, notably from Noel Paul Stookey and a new song from Craig Sonnenfeld.

NEXT SHOW will be published on or about November 28 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 possible thereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.
RCB Novus Ordo will also air separately. On this show I spin one song from
8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each artist.

PROGRAMMING NOTE:
Each week through my January shows I’m airing tracks from The 1861 Project, a series that touches upon the Civil War experience. We’re up to Volume 2: From The Famine To The Front. This collection of original music recalls those families with Scottish and Irish ties who fought in the war. From the liner notes “Every singer, player and writer on this album has a strong connection to Ireland, by ancestry, birth, or just by heart”. More about this fascinating series at www.the1861project.com

Down to 3 more shows, and 2 more of RCB Novus Ordo. There is still room to have holiday music by artists you know or work with to be aired on the final show of the year, set for the week of 12/16. Anything appropo for the time of the year (doesn’t have to be Christmas) will be considered.

COVERAGE: 3-4 times a month I go out to Philly-area gigs to do photos, some

some point in the future I might want to barter this work or be simply paid.

NEXT shows I’m covering:

**************
RCB REVIEW from this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Brian Dolzani returns to my airwaves after a number of years with a tender ballad. The acclaimed Bern & The Brights are also heard on this program with polished acoustic pop. Edith Crash in this segment, checking in from France (tho I couldn’t possibly pronounce any titles). Freddy Hall, plus Flashbulb Fires are two acts I first met at The Grape Room earlier in the year.

RCB proper: Water and dreams, two subjects that come up in the first segment in most of the songs. Both Flo Anito, and Katie Collins & The Backroads Band perform in Washington DC’s Downtown Holiday Market during the holiday season. Segment 2: Good Co., with their unique brand of ‘electro swing’ can be heard here. Ki & The Arrowtooth Waltz is an older project Kevin McWha Steele. Segment 4 had a real reflective tone, with songs about the moon (Jean Mann, Mark Erelli), and the only way to close my final show for November, Craig Sonnenfeld’s “November’s Song”.
