PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about February 27 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.

*****************************
I may be receiving help from my family re my financial situation. I say “my” because it’s the truth. I haven’t been able to keep up with the bills this year so far. I may be able to stay afloat some time longer but nothing is promised, of course. Further I’m sporadically interviewing for jobs. I’ve had to broaden my horizons to build more opportunities. I’m also directly reaching more people within this field of radio, podcasting and the music industry at large to see where I can fit in with my skills. More than one person has suggested the idea of doing social media marketing.

I’m continuing to accept donations. In the last few weeks I received enough to take care of my Web services. So thankfully, I’ll be on the Web for another month! And thank you, each of you that donated. The donation button is at the home tab and also the top part of the front page.

I’m not doing referrals for bookings or coverage of shows unless there is some sort of exchange of services (psst. cash is best). With that typed, I’ve planned to attend several shows for coverage on my website. Here’s my tentative list:
2/22 (tonight) Dan Sheehan Conspiracy at Connie’s Ric Rac www.dansheehan.net www.conniesricrac.com
3/1The Miners at Field House www.minersmusic.com www.fieldhousephilly.com
3/2 Dizzy Bats at JR’s Bar www.dizzybatsmusic.com
3/8 Changing Modes at The Legendary Dobbs www.changingmodes.com www.dobbsphilly.com

RCB rewind:
RCB Novus Ordo: Outstanding music from this edition include such from The Famly Business, Montreal’s Rouge Tigre, and classic rock band The Weekenders. The Beltways are also heard, themselves with 15+ years performing in and around Baltimore. Lowball Jack’s instrumental sounds are the latest release from Thirsty Records. Noel Paul Stookey, 1/3 of classic folk group Peter, Paul & Mary, returns with a new album.

RCB proper: By my count there were 11 artists in this edition who are performing in Toronto this week, as part of Folk Alliance International’s annual conference. Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer recorded an album of Francis James Child’s collection of poems. Known as the Child Ballads, I spun one song which has some sort of Scottish reference, tho it’s disputed as to whom Sir Patrick Spens is. Also heard once again is a selection from Nels Andrews’ latest. Brick Fields is heard in segment 1. They are true ministers of music, hosting a monthly event inside a local church with food, music, sermon and fellowship. Segment 2: Cary Cooper’s “Suzanne” resonates for me, as I am the subject’s age, and wonder if I, too, will run off to join the circus before I’m 44. Cary performs in the roundwith Claude Butch Morgan and Jan Seides at New World Deli in Austin, 3/2. Segment 3: Brother Joscephus & Roosevelt Dime share billing at the Sellersville Theater, Sellersville, PA on 3/2. Two great live ensembles on one bill. Just tremendous. The song I keep coming back to in Wes Tucker & The Skillet’s album “Afterlens” is “Rattle Your Chains”. Segment 4: Rebecca Loebe and Raina Rose continue to share a number of gigs. Rebecca and Jann Klose, 2 songwriters with powerful voices, will be at Steel City Coffeehouse on 3/3 in nearby Phoenixville. Final segment shares more new music from Carla Hassett, and a return to the airwaves by Phil Minissale. Craig Sonnenfeld and Patti DeRosa are at The Locals in Providence RI on 2/24.

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

The 1/27 podcast is the final one that I’ll be 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.1861project.com

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.

Here is the latest review, from The Legendary Dobbs, 1/25

So far there’s one possible show for me to attend in February, and I’m looking for at 2 more to cover during that month, as well as one before 1/30.

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

category ‘podcaster’ (‘music’ is the default; this should be changed!).
Then fill in a tweet on the page describing why you want yours truly to win
the title and the hallowed glassware.

RCB REVIEW (the annotated version):
RCB Novus Ordo: Robert Bobby’s re-released “Today!” album starts us off. Sidewalk Dave is a character and a half, with a concept album about romance reflected in the mating dance of bees. I know. Imani Coppola returns with a spacey dark tune. Patrick Brooks tells a ghost story in a song from his latest.

RCB proper: Hearing of the passing of bassist Michael Dunn, I opened with music from the time he was in Professor Louie & The Crowmatix’s band. Segment 1 starts personal and stays there, all about the first person. the matthew show is heard from once again, with a new album in tow, recorded at Sun Studios. Brand new music spun in a troika, all contemporary sounds with strings and beats (Victoria Love, LiLi Roquelin, Shara Strand). Segment 2: Brother Joscephus & The Love Revival Revolution Orchestra sharing bill with The Steel Wheels are part of this weekend’s Ann Arbor Folk Festival. Another new song from Bern & The Brights comes off as, well, bright. More brand new music, and another troika, from Dubious Ranger (whom I thought had broken up some time ago), V-Device from Italy, and Franklin’s Key (not from Philly, but Los Angeles). Segment 3: Got jazzy on you with The Brehms, then 2 songs in French. First was something of a wedding song by Marci Geller, and then a song of longing by David Garlitz, yet another new voice on this program. Carolann Solebello shared billing with The Kennedys on Saturday 1/26 in Titusville NJ, then with The YaYas on February 9 in Westport CT. Segment 4: Vance Gilbert & Patti DeRosa were at Me & Thee Coffeehouse in Marblehead MA on 1/25. Vance includes a Hall & Oates cover at the end of his album “Old White Men” with a brief reprise of the opening song “Boy On A Train” which I then spun in full.
