PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about March 6 and will be available
for about 1 year. 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 is a separate podcast with 6-8 songs, one each from a brand new
recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.

In terms of future programming, listen for some special seasonal songs for the weeks of 3/9 and 3/16
*****

Every so often I hear of another new or established program like myself in Philly take to bigger audiences in whatever way and actually reaching those masses and continue to market fairly well in this melting pot of a city. I keep thinking, why not me? Why can’t Radio Crystal Blue compete? Do I even want to compete?
The truth is, the money hasn’t been there for me to do marketing campaigns or logos or any such device to give this program a bigger and more ‘legitimate’ presence. Is my place in the music industry illegitimate then? I say no. Sure, I want a true studio presence. I want better organization of the music that comes in here. I wish I had more time to produce shows, to interview artists more, to review more shows. To take chances that represent the best of Radio Crystal Blue. Enough people know about this show. It’s existed for 13 years, all on the Web. That’s a big statement right here. I have built trust, and people trust in me and my message. Don’t I want to grow the show? Live events and such? Sure I do. I don’t know how, tho. I don’t know if I want to compete with other ‘radio’ programs. I wish that I would be the program that people turn to when there is new music by indie, underground and national touring acts. Not your commercial radio station. Not even your well-heeled podcasts. Not your online magazine either. I want Radio Crystal Blue to be first on your online block. Every 3 months I publish a chart that tells you who is getting the most airplay, the most exposure via my show. These are the names you will want to know about and listen to.
If I am ‘destined’ to be an alternative, fine. I believe that one commercial or alternative radio or TV presence should NOT, repeat, NOT, be the voice of a city. One or two music venues should NOT dictate what is legimitate music talent. I DO NOT support those companies and will never mention them. People, you have choices. The dive bars, the venues that don’t have the big marketing dollars, the radio stations with weaker signals (LP ones, and veteran podcasters that will ultimately represent the truth about what really is popular in music. We must stick together. And, together, we represent artists that you should pay attention to. Shows like Radio Crystal Blue will often spin music from artists that are local to an area as much as the nationally touring. Artists like Paige Allbritton here in Philly. Daniel Christian across Nebraska. The Modeens in Phoenix. Spanking Charlene in and around NYC. Who else is going to spin these artists on one program? Guarantee you there will be none besides me.
RCB REWIND:
RCB Novus Ordo: Checking in from Cleveland, Winslow is a 6-piece rock band with horns that brings a ton of soul. We hear more brand new music from Korea’s Love X Stereo..heavy on the synth (but do they call it K-pop?). I’m quite fond of this trio, and they’ll make their return to the US next month. Lowell Levinger, known as “Banana” from the 60’s band The Youngbloods (remember “Get Together”?) introduces an acoustic album, with special guests including Ry Cooder and David Grisman.

RCB proper: With the announcement of Joy Kills Sorrow’s breakup, I decided to give you a few songs from their 3-album repertoire. Hearing them for the first time back in 2005, I recognized something unique between the strong songwriting and all their stringed instruments. Something sophisticated as in classical, but also a sense of realism, much like what the genre of folk brings. And the approach musically reminded me just a bit of Sons Of The Never Wrong, and Crooked Still. The group will be missed. Segment 1: Kicked off with a song about Dale Earnhardt Jr from Chuck Schaeffer. And why not? Dale Jr. just won the Great American Race, the Daytona 500, last week. Loves It is a unique acoustic duo from Austin. Segment 2: How can I not spin something from Brother Joscephus the week before Mardi Gras? I actually spin a live track of theirs that’s available on their website. Von Shakes, a NYC/Dublin modern rock band whom I first saw in Philly last year, return to the rotation. Segment 3 includes music from Tall Tall Trees, whom I’m reviewing a show of later this week. Songs of devotion, of sorts, in this segment. I still get a kick out of Jill Cagney’s sarcastic song “If You Leave Me”. Segment 4 includes another new song from Paulo Franco and Shane Cooley. Stefilia’s Stone and Marci Geller share billing on 3/7 at The Buttonweed Tree in Middletown CT.
