NEXT SHOW will be published on or about November 28 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.the1861project.com

Down to 3 more shows, and 2 more of RCB Novus Ordo. There is still room to have holiday music by artists you know or work with to be aired on the final show of the year, set for the week of 12/16. Anything appropo for the time of the year (doesn’t have to be Christmas) will be considered.

**************
RCB REVIEW from this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Brian Dolzani returns to my airwaves after a number of years with a tender ballad. The acclaimed Bern & The Brights are also heard on this program with polished acoustic pop. Edith Crash in this segment, checking in from France (tho I couldn’t possibly pronounce any titles). Freddy Hall, plus Flashbulb Fires are two acts I first met at The Grape Room earlier in the year.

RCB proper: Water and dreams, two subjects that come up in the first segment in most of the songs. Both Flo Anito, and Katie Collins & The Backroads Band perform in Washington DC’s Downtown Holiday Market during the holiday season. Segment 2: Good Co., with their unique brand of ‘electro swing’ can be heard here. Ki & The Arrowtooth Waltz is an older project Kevin McWha Steele. Segment 4 had a real reflective tone, with songs about the moon (Jean Mann, Mark Erelli), and the only way to close my final show for November, Craig Sonnenfeld’s “November’s Song”.
