NEXT SHOW will be published on or about July 17 and will be available for
the rest of the year.
Owing to schedule demands, I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon
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
At this moment I’ve yet to post a review of last night’s showcase at The Fire, featuring my friends in the NYC band At Sea.  This review will be available later on Friday on my website.  Look for photos on Facebook and video on my YouTube channel. You know where.

I do have a review up from a showcase at The Grape Room, dated 7/10/12.  Read all about it at https://radiocrystalblue.net/2012/07/11/the-grape-room-71012/

I’m doing 6-song versions of RCB Novus Ordo this summer to further stimulate the wait list for CDs that are debuting on  my podcasts. Supply has dwindled, and there is probably a dozen artists I know of that have yet to send new material.

I’m seeking a day job in the areas of support/admin/clerical/research, within a 15 mile radius of Philadelphia.   Contact me if you know of a job that befits my requirements.

Thanks for being friends on the usual social media sites and beyond, and, of course, in person. I’ve no desire to set foot in NYC again unless I’m working there or else if my life depends on it.   I might try nearby cities (Baltimore, DC, hello?) for jobs if need be.  But I’d rather be in Philly for now, at least while I still have some $ to circulate.
TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: These are the last 5 folks that I’m following who
follow back: @connemarastone  @songscene @Brady_Chris1988 @jasonvigil @LateCambrian

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.

Right now here’s what I’ve planned to see:
Greta Gertler presents her band The Universal Thump at the Green Line Cafe,
7/19. http://www.theuniversalthump.com
One of the great Canadian bands ever, The Trews, play at The Grape Room on
7/25.  http://www.thetrewsmusic.com

RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows, not to be confused with the
actual audio:
RCB Novus Ordo: Outstanding in this week’s 6-pack are Late Cambrian (whose founder had also led The Flying Machines and The Attorneys), and DE rock band Darkin, bringing out the vintage grunge.

RCB proper: Continued a theme of starting with Luna for this week’s show, the long bonus track which is a Serge Gainsbourg cover. Laetitia Sadler of Stereolab in duet vox with Dean Wareham.  I had Serge on the brain after seeing a feature of the man on a public access TV program.  Summer and driving songs were the main part of Segment 1 (notably Amy Speace, Elisa Peimer, and another new one by Garrison Starr).   Segment 2 contained music by artists who are in this year’s Great South Bay Festival.  Yarn and Molasses Creek are in the Floyd Festival later in July.  Professor Louie & The Crowmatix are back with a new album and they kick off Segment 3, featuring guitar from Michael Falzarano.  Also spun more new music here from Changing Modes, This Is She (proud client of Miles High Productions) and brand new song from UK’s JoanOvArc.  Segment 4 featured the major performers of this year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. I did not find a list of the emerging artists, otherwise this show would be a lot longer! And in this segment, more songs relevant to driving. New music here from Nerissa & Katryna Nields plus a reintroduction to Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer from the recently released Little Blue Egg CD.  Closing segment was songwriter oriented, with some fighting words in a few, gently easing out with a song by Ryan Tennis that captures summer very well.
