STAT BLOG (stats and generally non-music related stuff I think up):
the DAILY (auto-generated online newspaper with selected keywords and
mentions from social media, updated each evening):
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about December 12 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 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.

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

Also: Another NEW MUSIC SAMPLER will be heard. Initially I had felt this would be a one-time revival. But I’ve decided to reintroduce the segment on demand whenever I feel the need to add some extra programming on a show that might seem unusually short compared to others. This segment will definitely not air the week of 12/16.

I’m just about at my limit with accepting HOLIDAY music for the final show
of the year, the week of 12/16. Thanks to everyone that submitted and
suggested tunes!

I’ve begun attending a course in Final Cut Pro 7 at PhillyCAM, the
public-access network which I’m a member of. I’ve already completed courses
in production editing and management. So I can now freely borrow field
equipment for use around the city. I’m pretty excited about this. Now I want
to get involved in productions by other members, and eventually muster up
courage to follow-through on one of two project ideas I have sketched out.

RCB LOVE goes to artists that have promoted my radio efforts in November:
Outside of the US, top 3 countries accessing Radio Crystal Blue are the UK,
France, and Canada.
Lot of people have accessed my reviews of events at Legendary Dobbs from
11/29 and The M Room from 11/23.
Most popular photo of the month was this one:

COVERAGE: 3-4 times a month I go out to Philly-area gigs to do photos, some
video, and a write-up on my website afterward. I do this for free, tho at
some point in the future I might want to barter this work or be simply paid.

NEXT shows I’m covering:
Going to two shows at Milkboy in Ardmore
12/14: At Sea www.atseamusic.com
12/29 Ray G. Ward www.raygward.com
RCB REVIEW from this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Long Island NY’s Revel 9 (formerly Gee Davey) have resurfaced with a harder,edgier sound. Galen Curry from Michigan delights with his own brand of love songs. The song “Last Man Alive” includes a kazoo solo. Beth Whitney’s tune “Seattle Rain” sounds like a cafe/coffeehouse favorite.

RCB proper:

Segment 1 includes brand new music from Shane Cooley, who is now focusing on duo gigs with Rosa Wallace. Inside this week’s New Music Sampler are The Blakes and The Young Evils, two touring bands from Seattle who played here in Philly a few months ago. “Dead Animals” by the latter is a very catchy song. Segment 2: Included another recent released song from NYC’s Downward Dogs and Spanking Charlene. Segment 3: One word personal subjects color this one (Dan May, Joy Kills Sorrow, Carolann Solebello). Carolann, with Meg Braun, perform December 9th, at the First Unitarian Church in Brooklyn NY. New Music Sampler #2 introduces us to veteran songwriter Jimmy LaFave among others. Final segment includes brand new music from mystical songwriter Cosby Gibson.
