NEXT SHOW will be published on or about August 22 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
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.
TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: These are the last 5 folks that I’m following who
follow back: @Katimac77 @TracyNewman @SongDogsRock @adam_gilbert @BoSoClub
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.

No show attendance in the last week and not sure I’ll be going to one tonight, seeing how the Philly weather is looking for Friday.
I am going to this one:
8/24: Starring (Northern Spy Records), Guardian Hall, et al, at Kung Fu Necktie, here in Philly
Looking for a 2nd event to attend in the area before the month is out.
SKYPE INTERVIEWS: I got the mic issue solved! I plan to begin interviewing Ariel Publicity clients through Skype on a weekly basis. All audio will be available through the aforementioned ‘field recording/interview’ FeedPlayer.SWAG: At some point in the near future I want to create and distribute (or have
created or distributed at least) some updated RCB logos and swag.


RCB Novus Ordo: David Leinweber returns to my airwaves with his latest acoustic album. Award-winning songwriter Lee Feldman is present here with his 4th album. Kati Mac, whom I had interviewed maybe 5 years ago, returns with her latest. You can hear Rob Morsberger on piano and backing vox on “Highway 100”. Rob himself is releasing 2 new albums very shortly and is fighting cancer.I had last met him about 10 years ago supporting Jon Herington.RCB proper: In mid-August I always start with The Velvet Underground’s “The Gift”. Out of this tragicomic piece I always seem to take different directions. This year, having absorbed some history on Serge Gainsbourg, I spun the opener to his 1971 concept album re Melody Nelson. From that lovely pastiche of symphonic rock and spoken word (aha), we go to the spoken word intro and the psychedelics of The Small Faces, then some early Eno, and then the Madchester scene circa 1991 with a long danceable jam from Saint Etienne. Segment 1 following: Two NYC songwriters beginning this one (Bryan Dunn, John Brodeur), then some soft songs through the rest of this segment. Segment 2 begins with MJ Hibbett & The Validators’ concept album Dinosaur Planet. Followed up with live songs by The StereoFidelics and Sirsy. This weekend starts the first ever Liberty Music Festival, centered around The Legendary Dobbs here in Philly, with 74 artists performing. I spun 5 of those artists in one dedicated segment. My favorites are the ones from Venice Sunlight and The Way Home, both with classic pop-rock leanings. Late Cambrian is heard once again here with a great electronic-fueled song that should be in the clubs. All three with songs that remain in my head for days. Beyond this, spun another from The Timid Roosevelts, who are just about to release their new CD. Segment 4: Greg Klyma shares billing with Danielle Miraglia at The Burren in Somerville, MA. You can hear Greg back up Danielle on “See The Light” which I spun following Greg’s tune. Greg, along with Kate Klim and Meg Braun, perform at the upcoming Cutting Edge Of The Campire Festival at Passim, in Cambridge MA. Of course, I spin Meg’s tune “August” here. On the same weekend as the festival in Cambridge is the Kerrville Wine & Music Festival, as I spun music by 4 artists who are part of the lineup (Cary Cooper, Raina Rose, Anna Dagmar, Brother Sun). Closed with Heather Pierson’s summer romance song, plus a Philly subway romance song by Vance Gilbert, and an instrumental from Bolton MA’s Dan & Faith.
