*******************
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about May 30 and will be available for the
rest of the year.
Owing to schedule demands, I usually aim for noon 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
as many as 8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each
artist.
********************
I’ve added SPOTIFY to the audio arsenal for Radio Crystal Blue. I don’t have to instruct you on this music service, do I? Well you can now hear the 4 most recent editions of my shows, all from the month of May, on the big website. That’s IF you have Spotify. Here’s the playlist link:

There’s a larger playlist connector also but I think WordPress is quashing the HTML. The above site will definitely get you in. Or just look inside Spotify itself.
Physically I’m recovering quite well, and the pendulum swings back. Biorhythms were mainly positive this week. Almost overdid it the day our temperature reached 90 first time this year. What am I talking about? Read more about biorhythms at www.facade.com/biorhythm
I’m composing notes on a project that will be remotely related to Radio Crystal Blue, tho it will NOT be in radio form. It’s too precious to share online with anyone yet. I want you to be surprised when it’s unveiled. I have a lot to learn before I get to this but it’s all in the works, starting this month. I don’t know if it will profit or not; I just know that it will reach more eyeballs and more people that appreciate my approach with music and radio.

TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: These are the last 5 folks that I’m following who

********************
COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews, 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 plan to attend review in the month ahead:
6/8 Ryan Tennis www.ryantennismusic.com hosts the Clubhouse Concert series, a house concert in South Philly, about a mile from my own dwelling. I was there to see Carrie Elkin last year and was impressed by the performance space. Griz (Chris Grunwald), a fixture here for Philly folk fans, is the featured artist.
6/12 Just found out that Benyaro, the beloved NYC/WY act, are performing at The Fire this evening. I haven’t seen them since they were a 4-piece and still mainly an emerging NYC act. I understand they are a duo now, and as strong as ever musically. www.benyaro.com

6/14 M’Balia, another wonderful Philly artist, performs a free show at LOVE Park, in the heart of Center City. www.mbalia.com********************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Outstanding music here includes very personal and new material by Tom Goss, Bakelite 78 with their mix of country, blues and rock, and Fred Arcoleo’s songs of social justice.

RCB proper: I barely announced a summer theme to this show, which is my custom in the weekend of Memorial Day. I found myself airing songs that had both a summery feel as well as distorted. Summer is the time to have loud songs, even electronic pieces. It’s simply a time to turn the radio up; there’s more daylight to do so. Why not? So it’s a rare day I actually cue up favorites from 90’s acts like Catherine Wheel, Boo Radleys, th’ Faith Healers, Ride, etc. Yes, I have weird tastes, and often reaches across to Europe. As for the indie segments: Mostly songs about memories and longing filled segment 1 (Ryan Tennis, Catie Curtis prominently). Segment 2 gives us more spacey music from Heth & Jed and Kmang Kmang. Sylvia Platypus, a band I first encountered 2 months ago, give off a Velvet Underground-type sound amidst their modern psychedelics at times, especially on “Hush Now”. Segment 3: Justin Roth and Claude “Butch” Morgan, share billing on the main stage at the Kerrville Folk Festival tonight (6/1). Speaking of, congratulations to Edie Carey for being one of the 6 New Folk competition winners! Hard times were also sung about in week 3 (Randy Stern, Evangenitals). Segment 4

First airplay ina while for Christine Havrilla’s rock-oriented project Gypsy Fuzz. Patricia Silverberg has resurfaced with a new EP. Katie Barbato also debuting here with a track from “The Millay Tapes”, her take on some of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s poetry. A couple of good night/good mornings from Eleanor Fye and Helen Austin round out the show.
