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.

NEXT SHOW will be published on or about September 19 and will be available
for
the rest of the year. It’s true. 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.
*******************
TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: These are the last 5 folks that I’m following who
follow back:

****************
I felt a real sense of outspokenness this week, and vented the old spleen in my kindest and most heartfelt way. I normally hold back, but this time around I decided to just let it all out. I didn’t care as to who would reply or how. I think the catalyst was actually having a temp gig which lasted all of 2 days, where my mind and heart did a 180-degree turn. I felt my intense sensitivity and at once the willingness to express it.
Not a day goes back where, at least in the online world, I touch minds, hearts, and funny bones. I recall the late Jim Valvano’s last public appearance, at the ESPY Awards, March 1993. This quote gets to me: “If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.”
This isn’t a personal credo for me, but I find myself often either in thought, or emotionally aware of something in myself or others, and often come up with something so funny to me, that it registers just as funny to someone else. The trick is conveying those feelings, thoughts, and magic when typing it on Facebook, or Twitter, or…even,yes… on Radio Crystal Blue. I do more than just spin songs. I share some personal thoughts, some anecdotes, some scenes from my life (tho I will often hide specifics to protect the guilty), and just be real.
So, I further encourage you to listen to my show, and in the words of Philly legend Bill Cosby “…and if you’re not careful, you may learn something before it’s done.”

INTERVIEW:
The veteran Colorado-based songwriter/bandleader Chris Daniels chatted with yours truly on September 10th, via Skype. Chris and I talked about his band, the Kings, a bit about life, health, politics, and other matters. The interview went about 40 minutes and it was just awesome to hear his stories, including the making of his first solo album “Better Days”. Chris pretty much predates the Colorado music scene proper. You can hear this interview at my ‘field recording’ FeedPlayer, accessible in the same manner you can hear Radio Crystal Blue, tho at a slightly different locale: http://www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalbluefield This player is also available through my website, and you can stream, share and download the audio from this and other interviews.
http://www.chrisdaniels.com

COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews along with photos, video, and audio of live events.
You can see
and hear evidence across my Facebook and YouTube channels, plus the field
recording FeedPlayer.Time, location and expense will be taken into account
before taking on a job.
Here are the shows I’m planning to see:
9/29: Philly native and West Coast denizen Jeff Campbell returns to his
roots, and plays The Grape Room http://www.jeffcampbellmusic.com
9/15: Lotus Hill releases a new CD at Milkboy’s Center City locale.
http://www.lotushillband.com
10/11 Blag’ard, a classic rock duo from NC, play at JR’s Bar, not far from yours truly in South Philly
http://www.blagard.com
10/19: Post-punk alt-country songwriter Freddy Hall (The Best Intentions) performs at The Grape Room http://www.freddyhallmusic.com
I also do audio interviews at live events and also via Skype (cblue456)
***********************
RCB REVIEW:
RCB Novus Ordo: Standout out tunes from this edition include roots rockers Cletus Romp from Cincinnati, uptempo rock from upstate NY’s Oxford Train, and lovely Brazilian music from Carla Hassett.

RCB proper: Second consecutive week I begin with Pamela Wyn Shannon’s music, digging into her 2007 release “Couring Autumn”. Segment 1 includes contemporary songwriters. Meghan Cary, Craig Sonnenfeld and Elaine Romanelli, spun consecutively, perform at the Haverford (PA) Music Festival 9/15. Segment 2 gives us blues (Bob Corritore, Rod Piazza & The All Mighty Flyers heard here; Bob guests on his birthday with Rod’s band 9/29). Shupikai is a jazz/blues instrumental project led by NYC’s Bob Petrocelli. The transition to louder rock came easy as I spun another by The Trapps, plus music by ‘glamwave’ duo Girls On Film (yes, they love all things Duran),and a newer tune by NYC’s PaperDoll. Segment 3: Justin Roth, The Steel Wheels, and John McCutcheon performed at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield KS on 9/13. McCutcheon’s CD is homage to Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday. Blue Coin have an intriguing folk sound, somewhat spacey tune spun here. Sam Otis Hill & Co., Greg Klyma & Sarah Blacker, perform at the New England Americana Festival at the sainted Club Passim, 9/15. Sarah’s tune is the title track of her new EP. Segment 4: Avi Wisnia & Arlan Feiles performed at Milkboy Coffee’s Center City location on 9/12 for the latest installment of The 9…9 songwriters on one bill doing 3 songs each. I just had to spin Aztec Two-Step’s ode to Olga Korbut and the remembrance of dark days on what’s been 40 years since the Black September incident in Munich. Songs of healing and hope close this out: Red Molly with one of Molly Venter’s own songs, and a live recording of Craig Bickhardt (Sellersville Theater, Sellersville, PA).
