PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about February 27 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
possiblethereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 10 (ten) songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of
each.

*****************************
I may be receiving help from my family re my financial situation. I say “my” because it’s the truth. I haven’t been able to keep up with the bills this year so far. I may be able to stay afloat some time longer but nothing is promised, of course. Further I’m sporadically interviewing for jobs. I’ve had to broaden my horizons to build more opportunities. I’m also directly reaching more people within this field of radio, podcasting and the music industry at large to see where I can fit in with my skills. More than one person has suggested the idea of doing social media marketing.

I’m continuing to accept donations. In the last few weeks I received enough to take care of my Web services. So thankfully, I’ll be on the Web for another month! And thank you, each of you that donated. The donation button is at the home tab and also the top part of the front page.

I’m not doing referrals for bookings or coverage of shows unless there is some sort of exchange of services (psst. cash is best). With that typed, I’ve planned to attend several shows for coverage on my website. Here’s my tentative list:
2/22 (tonight) Dan Sheehan Conspiracy at Connie’s Ric Rac www.dansheehan.net www.conniesricrac.com
3/1The Miners at Field House www.minersmusic.com www.fieldhousephilly.com
3/2 Dizzy Bats at JR’s Bar www.dizzybatsmusic.com
3/8 Changing Modes at The Legendary Dobbs www.changingmodes.com www.dobbsphilly.com

RCB rewind:
RCB Novus Ordo: Outstanding music from this edition include such from The Famly Business, Montreal’s Rouge Tigre, and classic rock band The Weekenders. The Beltways are also heard, themselves with 15+ years performing in and around Baltimore. Lowball Jack’s instrumental sounds are the latest release from Thirsty Records. Noel Paul Stookey, 1/3 of classic folk group Peter, Paul & Mary, returns with a new album.

RCB proper: By my count there were 11 artists in this edition who are performing in Toronto this week, as part of Folk Alliance International’s annual conference. Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer recorded an album of Francis James Child’s collection of poems. Known as the Child Ballads, I spun one song which has some sort of Scottish reference, tho it’s disputed as to whom Sir Patrick Spens is. Also heard once again is a selection from Nels Andrews’ latest. Brick Fields is heard in segment 1. They are true ministers of music, hosting a monthly event inside a local church with food, music, sermon and fellowship. Segment 2: Cary Cooper’s “Suzanne” resonates for me, as I am the subject’s age, and wonder if I, too, will run off to join the circus before I’m 44. Cary performs in the roundwith Claude Butch Morgan and Jan Seides at New World Deli in Austin, 3/2. Segment 3: Brother Joscephus & Roosevelt Dime share billing at the Sellersville Theater, Sellersville, PA on 3/2. Two great live ensembles on one bill. Just tremendous. The song I keep coming back to in Wes Tucker & The Skillet’s album “Afterlens” is “Rattle Your Chains”. Segment 4: Rebecca Loebe and Raina Rose continue to share a number of gigs. Rebecca and Jann Klose, 2 songwriters with powerful voices, will be at Steel City Coffeehouse on 3/3 in nearby Phoenixville. Final segment shares more new music from Carla Hassett, and a return to the airwaves by Phil Minissale. Craig Sonnenfeld and Patti DeRosa are at The Locals in Providence RI on 2/24.

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.

PROGRAMMING NOTE:
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.

Outside of the US, top 3 countries accessing Radio Crystal Blue are the UK,

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.
