Influential violinist/octave mandolinist, Darol Anger, teams up with frequent co-conspirator, guitarist Emy Phelps, for a series of favorite songs, of the 1960s. The guest artists on this
album help elevate it, from ‘cover album’ status, to a new statement on New Acoustic (or, simply Americana) music. Many of their favorite musicians, in the Northeast U.S., contributed
much, to these songs. Darol has done similar projects, during his time with Republic of Strings, and a prior folk album, of highly arranged material, (Heritage), with major-label guests.
From this CD, I aired: “Stone Soul Picnic”, “Killin’ The Blues”, & “The Tattler/I Think It’s Going To Work Out Fine”.

PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about January 8 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 6 songs, one each from a brand
new recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
The next edition of RCB Novus Ordo will also be first published the week of January 5,2014.

Each of these artists have received my year-end #1 ranking as top artist from Radio Crystal Blue over the past 10 years. Every year I publish the top 100, and similar lists that include top albums, and top industry names associated with these as well. I also had published an all-time RCB list, based on the cumulative scores of rank from year to year. As I type this, I am strongly considering redoing the aspects of this chart, and also eliminating those whom I’ve lost touch with or otherwise haven’t appeared on my show in over a year.
With that, the announcement for the 2013 titles are most interesting. I’m just putting the finishing touches on the quarterly charts, which will set in place its companion charts, and will be set to publish. But first……

The big event this week is not a podcast but a Twitter event! On December 26, noon ET, I will gently invade your Twitter timelines, and present, one by one, the top 100 artists of 2013. Use the hashtag #rcbtop100 if you want to get in on the chat and guess whom will be #1 this year.
Note that the chart page is updated as of October: www.radiocrystalblue.net/chart-page The page is set to be redone the moment the countdown is unveiled to the world via Twitter. Those of you on Facebook will likely get the syndicate feed as my posts on Twitter do synchronize there. Also, if you see the Fall 2013 quarterly chart, I indicate the ten artists who are mathematically eligible to win this year. So…from those ten, can you guess who will win? The answer really depends on how well you listen to my podcasts and track who is getting more airplay and exposure.

 
So…..I’ve a lot to do before the big announcement, and that also includes getting some more of my finances in order. I’m still afloat tho I’ve really no extra $ to do any social events. That’s why I haven’t done any reviews of live events in a very long while. My plan is to work and earn enough to pay the bills, plus have extra so that I can cover events, plus feed into the vision I posted the link of earlier.
RCB REWIND:
 
RCB proper: A number of artists sent great new and recent holiday tunes and I thank each of them for doing so! Along with these I included some classic and irreverent holiday tunes, plus the penultimate segment, where I shared, once again, my ideal holiday songs. Also part of the RCB tradition is to recite Jack Kerouac’s ‘Home For Christmas’, with the setting being Jack’s boyhood home of Lowell MA. Brand new and original holiday tunes courtesy of: Antigone Rising, Calico (Manda Mosher in this California folk-rock trio), Ronnie Fauss, Margo Rey (an MHP client), and Ian McGlynn. Larry Saklad, a member of Alan Mann’s Free Arts Band in the 80s, mixed an updated version of the recent classic “Christmas On The Block”
