PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about January 20 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 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 each.
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.1861project.com

On Twitter: Monday RCB Twitter Trivia. Sometime in the 6pm hour ET I will give you 3 questions based on the airplay from the most recent podcast. All you have to do is reply with the correct answer. Good karma for the most correct answers (I’m on a budget, folks) @radiocblue

 
LIVE EVENT COVERAGE: I’m planning to cover 1 or 2 events a month in Philly. So far, there is one possible event to attend next week and I’m still seeking a second. I do writeups of shows on my website, and share most photos on Facebook, plus video on YouTube.
*****************************
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!). 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: Tom Brislin (Spiraling) is now situated further south and unveils a solo album, performing nearly all instruments. I spun an instrumental from that album.
RCB proper: Elison Jackson’s song “Man About Lowell” would seem to be about a hero, Jack Kerouac. Daphne Lee Martin on backing vox. Elison Jackson’s album is on Daphne Lee’s label Telegraph Recording Company. Veteran bandleader Chris Daniels (The Kings) released a solo album. Included is a section of songs recorded live at Telluride in 1985. The song I spun “Cabin Fever” from the live set was rerecorded in studio for this album as well.
RCB proper: Segment 1: Darius Lux and Sloan Wainwright perform at part of the Posi Music Festival in Orlando FL this weekend. Rather positive (posi, positive, get it?) and daring songs in this first segment, including one recent song from Tall Tall Trees. Segment 2: Eilen Jewell and Miss Tess share billing tonight (1/18) at Narrows Center For the Arts in Fall River MA. I had known of Miss Tess from her days fronting her prior band, the Bon Ton Parade. Her new band, The Talkbacks, swing and rock out a bit more, resembling Eilen’s own sound. DK & The Joy Machine is solo artist Dian Killian and her mountain dulcimer. Spun a special segment of music of artists peforming at the 13th annual Light Of Day Festival, happening all week in South Jersey. (and what’s funny is, I only now get the new Arlon Bennett CD in the mail!) Segment 3: New music from Jamie Kent and Big Rock Club are highlights. Churchill & Justin Levinson are at Higher Ground in Burlington VT on 1/19 (how high up is it?). Segment 4: Spuyten Duyvil & Putnam Smith perform at someplace called Rockwood Music Hall on 1/20. I followed this up with an Amy Speace cover by Red Molly, and a few other songs relevant to the subject of time. Final segment: Honor Finnegan opens for Brother Sun on 1/19 at Circle Of Friends Coffeehouse, Franklin MA. A few more new tunes from Katie Ainge and Heather Pierson round this edition out.
 
HODGEPODGE OPEN-MIC: The mic, she is open. It is at HodgePodge, a variety/retail music establishment at 1212 South Street here in Philadelphia. I’ve been deputized to guest-host their Friday open mic on January 12 (tonight!). 5 minute performance time. Open to comedians, musicians, poets. It’s the only Friday open mic around! Signup at 730pm, event runs 8pm-10pm. More at http://circamotifs.wordpress.com/about/
Psst: There IS no microphone. Really! Sound travels very well in this establishment.

RCB Novus Ordo will also air separately. On this show I spin one song from

*******************
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).
