NEXT SHOW will be published on or about August 29 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.

Last minute word came that La Resistance, a band whose music you heard on the 8/19 edition, was scheduled for a gig at The Fire here in Philly. I jumped at the chance to attend. Full review of the show at
https://radiocrystalblue.net/2012/08/24/the-fire-philadelphia-82212/
I have video of La Resistance as well, which will appear on my YouTube channel once it’s cleared by the band.

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.

Tonight I’m attending this one:
Starring (Northern Spy Records), Guardian Hall, et al, at Kung Fu
Necktie, here in Philly

Looking into the near future, watch and listen for audio interviews of Ariel Publicity clients

I still intend to have RCB swag built with a new logo. It’s long overdue! I might wait until I’m working again to make this happen.
**********************
I am inundated with new CDs. Anything that arrives now might have as long as an 8 week wait to debut. Not only am I seeking new material, I’m also seeking great concept/compilation CDs that I can feature, track-for-track.

Desmond Grundy: ” I appreciate the time you put into creating your finely crafted show. Good sound, good songs, intelligent banter.” www.desmondgrundy.com
Larry Brown: “Just listend to the broadcast 8/19/12, It was great. This is what radio should be about. So glad to be a part of this.” http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000089509898
***********************
RCB REVIEW:

RCB Novus Ordo: Oustanding music includes Gigi Love with alternative country/folk from the Rockies, an instrumental piece from Brazil’s Lu Horta, and NYC’s At Sea (latest project by longtime airplay recipient Jason Brody; I first got to see the band last month)

RCB proper: Segment 1: Started with a new song from Jenee Halstead and a recent one from Sarah Blacker. Both songwriters are performing at Adam Ezra’s Ramble in Salisbury, MA, 8/25. The song I spun of Garrison Starr’s “Slow Crawl” will soon have a video by Garrison herself. Fellow West Coast songwriter Lily Wilson was heard afterward. Chris Riffle & La Resistance were on a showcase at Brooklyn NY’s Spike Hill on 8/23. Segment 2 includes music from a brand new EP by Voxhaul Broadcast. Val Emmich is about to launch a new CD. Spun another new one from roots rockers Whisperado. The Portraits (RCB Best Intertional Artists of 2011) will soon send me their new album. Segment 3 was filled with blues and country throughout, including another new song from Karen Collins & The Backroads Band (hearing either pedal or slide guitar through a number of these songs). Closing segment started with Parisian songwriter Hannah Judson and another from her unique-sounding album. A few summer songs also from Meredith Blis and Lynn Hollyfield.
