PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about July 17 and will be available for about 1 year. 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 is a separate podcast with 8 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of each.

 

CD FOCUS: I continue to seek very good concept/compilations for future shows, with albums I can feature track-for-track. Do you know of one? Send it along!

**

Folks, I’m still here, in Philadelphia, and hope to be for as long as I can breathe. There is a big issue on the homefront and the fact is too plain to mince words on.
The $ that I have lived on since my move here 2.5 years ago is just about gone.
I cannot get the bills paid, and am holding out hope only on two jobs I recently interviewed for. I have a good feeling about both them, that’s all I will say. It’s not really a case of checking up on both jobs to see if I made it. It’s more like waiting for the phone to ring. Outside of that, I’m just not sure what I’ll do. I have no plans to leave and I don’t know where else I can go.
What I do know is this: I’m seeking work in Philadelphia and the metro area, in 1 of several industries, at a certainn $ range, and something commutable via bus/train. This is not an impossible task, but it sure feels like it sometimes.
To that end, for purposes of my program, I can’t make any real plans beyond the next few weeks in terms of programming. Coming into more income, via a job or other means will definitely make the biggest difference.
***
 
5 YEARS AGO this week I debuted Mary Edwards on RCB Novus Ordo. Within the rotation were songs by these artists: Lin McEwan; Luke Sneyd; Katie Pearlman, Rebecca Pronsky; Tim Blane, The Clarks; Afterdawn; Telling On Trixie; Amy Clarke; Richard Shindell. These are names that have hardly graced the show since but have certainly left their impact.
Onward:

********
RCB Novus Ordo: The Boxcar Lilies have returned with a new album that starts this program. Goodnight Moonshine is a new duo-led project from Molly Venter (Red Molly) and Eben Pariser (Roosevelt Dime). Veteran songwriter and activist Si Kahn presents a concept album singing and speaking out against the encroachment of mining to be done in Alaska’s Bristol Bay. Some of the songs could serve as official state songs. Andrew Calhoun, he of the Waterbug indie label, returns with a new album here also.

RCB proper: The 8th Huntington (NY) Folk Festival took focus this week as I presented 2 sets of music (Segments 1 and 4) from artists who are part of this upcoming experience. Segment 2 started with 2 songs mentioning California. The sisters von Grey, plus Mike Vial and Lukas Nelson (& Promise Of The Real) took part in the Common Grounds Music Festival in Lansing MI this week. Got a tweet from Mike once I published the show: “..Quick connection, Blue Rodeo’s live sound engineer Duke Foster did some engineering for my 2nd EP!” Segment 3: I like Jason Myles Goss’s tune about a boxer fighting on July 3, following up with local band Song Dogs, and two songs about Asian communities of sorts (Changing Modes, Love X Stereo). Segment 5 partially contains music from artists taking part in the first Mountain Folk & Roots Festival in Gettysburg, PA, 7/26-28.Songs in this segment seemed to be bluesy and somewhat depressive. Included is another track from the new album by Krista Baroni. Final segment: 3 songs referencing Europe (Eliane Amherd, Jean Mann, Patti DeRosa), and a few songs right from the heart to close out. I love Amanda Pearcy’s thoughtful and throaty expression on “The Story Of My Heart”

NEXT SHOW will be published on or about July 25 and will be available for
the rest of the year.
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 6 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each
artist.
*******************
In the prior week I had promised a review of a showcase I attended at The Fire, which included music by At Sea. Here’s a link to the review:

**************
I’ve agreed to take part in Ariel Publicity’s 6th Digital Press Conference, scheduled for July 31. I’ll be remotely attending via Skype and interviewing some of their clients. The audio of the interview will be made available once everything is cleared. More about this event at www.arielpublicity.com
WIKI: I’d like to see Radio Crystal Blue grow its online presence with more of a Wiki presence. Some of you know that I have a YahooGroup attached to the show. www.groups.yahoo.com/group/radiocrystalblue Back in 2001 I built this to foster conversation and interest in the show. Lately I’ve become the only one contributing and posting archives of older shows. You can see every show with a playlist on here going back to 2001, just when I started to spin indie/underground songs. This actually predates the time I was really immersed in the music scene in NYC. I’d like to take all the info and make some use of it for my own website. You might wonder who got airplay in a particular show, or what segments held a specific genre, theme, an so forth. What would you like to see? I’ll take suggestions on how to build and grow this presence.

WORK: 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.
**************
TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: These are the last 5 folks that I’m following who
follow back: @clearcoversongs @IAlabel @DownwardDogs @sicmanofva @Tom0Perry

****************
COVERAGE:
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:
The Trews, and the StereoFidelics, at The Grape Room:
7/25. www.thetrewsmusic.com www.stereof.com www.graperoommusic.com
8/18 is The Mont Clare Summer Jam in Mont Clare, PA, with acts such as headliners Blue Coupe (members of Blue Oyster Cult & Alice Cooper), Low Society, and regional acts like Kingsnake, The Watchmen, The Noid, and others. My exact involvement is undetermined at this moment. www.rocknrolltheworld.com for more.

Radio Crystal Blue continues to circulate the good word on some websites:

*********************
RCB REVIEW:
RCB Novus Ordo: Jenee Halstead returns to the RCB airwaves with a new album, and with songs that were written just prior to recording the album. Rock band Friction Land arise out of the ashes of the band Friction. Foolish Ida is a project by Sarah Rabdau, memorializing a Maurice Sendak character in a song cycle. During the show I read the letter that she composed to Maurice, a letter she never got to send, as the author passed away just prior to the CD release event. Spun music of 2 artists who are pillars of the indie/underground/DIY music scene in Philly: Griz (Chris Grunwald), and Reverend TJ McGlinchey.
RCB proper: I dug out another CD from the long-defunct huH music service, and a great ambient-techno tune by Future Sound Of London. A lot of segments this week. Two segments contained music by artists performing as part of the Huntington (NY) Folk Festival. The 2nd of these 2 segments featured artists who have some connection to each other, mainly in appearing on each other’s recordings. Also receiving airplay were artists who are part of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s Emerging Artist Showcase. Segment 1 features more music from Justin Levinson & The Valcours. Segment 2 of the standard segments includes Ratham Stone, who have recently changed band personnel. My Pet Dragon and Lisa Bianco share billing at NYC’s City Winery in August. Wormburner’s song “Some Summer’ is a good seasonal song. Segment 3: Mark Erelli & Eilen Jewell perform in NYC’s Stuyvesant Town on 7/21. Spun another new tune by Joy Mills (of The Starlings) and by Dan May. Segment 4 started with Anna Dagmar, Linq, and Beth DeSombre. Anna and Linq were part of a triple bill in MA 7/19. Anna and Beth are part of a songwriter showcase at The Burren Backroom, 7/22. Closed with another new song by Adler & Hearne, this from an album recorded at Eddie’s Attic in GA last year.
