PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about June 5 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 10 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of each.

In case you wonder: I usually take out some part of Friday (or Saturday at this rate) and figure who to give airplay to. Artists and their reps are contacted by email days before airplay is granted.
5 YEARS AGO: Guess what music I spun 5 years ago this music? Among the notable that aired in late May 2008 are those remain on my current radar: Devon Sproule, Nerissa & Katryna Nields, Garrison Starr, Catie Curtis, and Arlon Bennett. I don’t have the audio of that show but I can give you this old playlist and more if you surf on over to http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/radiocrystalblue/message/2463
***
DONATIONS: Concerned about my financial footing but I remain somewhat hopeful in the opportunity of finding work on a regular basis here in and around Philadelphia. In the meanwhile, you may donate to Radio Crystal Blue via the PayPal button at the home page.
***
IDEALISTIC SPORT on hiatus: I’m putting aside Idealistic Sport, the sports/stats/music podcast for now. I have felt myself filtering content based on pressure from some areas in my life, enough to limit the quality and amount of content that would make a podcast viable in my own eyes. I will instead turn to small amounts of audio by using Chirbit, an audio-tweet service. It’s a service more people ought to use.. I’m there www.chirbit.com/radiocblue For posterity’s sake I’m keeping the podcasts active on my site so you can listen to the history being made. I can’t promise just now when it will return but I have no desire to take it down.
As always, all info is repeated on the Idealistic Stats blog, with occasional posts, further repeated at Glipho, Facebook and Twitter. The blog has the final answer about all stats/sources/analysis and opinion www.idealisticstats.wordpress.com
********
RCB Novus Ordo: Jan Seides received exposure on this program way back in 2003 and that continues to this day using the same formula as before, and with some awesome Austin-area studio personnel. Racing Rain is a noir-sounding band I saw at Cape May earlier in the year. Amy Lynn & The Gunshow I had seen several times. She is absolutely captivating with her voice. Grown Up Avenger Stuff I met at a GoGirlsMusic event here in Philly last year, great hard rock sound. Rachel Schain’s career I’ve tracked for a few years now, and was proud to attend her CD release event this year. Dar Williams. What else can I say? (Except to type that she is musing on mythology for her latest album).
RCB proper: I feel like spreading out the summer songs through much of the year and giving you a few songs at a time right at the beginning of every show. I have a larger-than-average appreciation for Shonen Knife. “Ramones Forever” is a faithful homage. Naturally I gave you two songs from Forest Hills, NY’s finest…creating something of a Cali summer segue. Earlier in the week I asked folks on social media to name their favorite humorous California-centered rock song. My answer “Dick’s Automotive” by The Rugburns. And if you like those apples, see Steve Poltz’s solo version of this tune on YouTube. You’re welcome. Congratulations to Ellis, Honor Finnegan and Paul Sachs among those who were among the winning 6 in the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Music Festival. Segment 1: Spun songs from those who are scheduled features in this week’s portion of the 18-day event. I included a song from a new album by Buddy Mondlock. I also hear that Butch Morgan and Jaime Michaels are planning new albums. Segment 2: Jessie Killguss & Radio Gold with a summery song here. Majority of songs here are reflective, idealistic in nature, taking life in perspective. New tune here also from veteran Chicago blues performers John Primer and Bob Corritore. Segment 3: The Wyld Olde Souls get a long-waited debut here. I’m in love with David Rogue’s sound, not to mention his vocal strength. That’s the kind of voice I want to have when I grow up. Aqua Cherry with a new EP, the title track far and away the best of the bunch. Boy + Kite from TX also return with a new EP, a nod to classic indie label stuff from the 80’s-90s (think My Bloody Valentine, Boo Radleys, 4AD label, etc.). Segment 4: Marci Geller, Lara Herscovitch are part of the Herland Music Festival on Sunday 6/2, Stafford Springs, CT. Marci, along with Steve Chizmadia are among those performing at the NERFA Capital Region 1-Day Mini-Conference. This takes place on 6/9 in Rockville MD. Buskin & Batteau, along with Noel Paul Stookey and other great songwriters will gather on Saturday June 1, for a benefit concert in College Park, MD. The concert benefits the World Folk Music Association. Final segment: Heather Maloney was debuted 2 weeks prior on RCB Novus Ordo, and we hear more magic from her s/t album kicking this segment off. A slight theme about the elements at play here. Heather, plus Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem are part of the Asparagus Festival, Sunday 6/2 in Hadley, MA. Raina Rose is about to unveil a new album. Yours truly had the opportunity to air a track before the official release date. She and Rebecca Loebe are part of the CD release event on 6/13 at Austin’s Cactus Cafe.

Owing to schedule demands, I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon as

8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each artist.

Those media courses I mentioned to you last week will start next week, 3 weeks for one, 7 weeks for another. Can’t wait to get started!

QUARTERLY AIRPLAY CHART announcement to be made on 10/1/12 630pm ET, on the occasion of Radio Crystal Blue’s 12th anniversary! As we begin year number 13, I will reveal on the website who received the most airplay in total and progressive amounts of airplay. This chart will go a long way to determine who will be in my Top 100 list for 2012. That particular chart will be revealed just after Christmas.

I never got to NYC this week. I do plan to go soon tho, mainly because I’m seeking same-day repair for a vital part of of my camera. The camera is still functional in the meantime.

COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews along with 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. I’ve done this work for free, but that may
change soon. Also, with the video skills I’m learning, I might do more
video oriented work in the future.

9/29: Philly native and West Coast denizen Jeff Campbell returns to his
roots, and plays The Grape Room www.jeffcampbellmusic.com
10/6: Beaucoup Blue are at Ortlieb’s Lounge www.beaucoupblue.com
10/16: Post-punk alt-country songwriter Freddy Hall (The Best Intentions)

11/3: Katie Barbato, Ginger Coyle, Danielle Miraglia at Sine Studios www.katiebarbato.com www.gingercoyle.com www.daniellem.com

I also do audio interviews at live events and also via Skype (cblue456)
****
RCB REVIEW:
RCB Novus Ordo: Memorable songs from this show arose from Add Moss’s long jam “And So We Fall”, the short sharp pop-rock of The Adarna, and the thoughtful country/Americana of The Pawn Shop Saints.

RCB proper: First segment includes official showcase artists that are participating in the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Confence at the end of the month. I also spun John Batdorf, who is participating in some of the private showcases. First airplay in a while from Jaime Michaels here. Honor Finnegan’s ensemble on her album “The Tiny Life” are made up of members of The YaYas and friends. Segment 2: You’ll recall the quoted lyric that headed my playlist posting for the week. That lyric is from Daniel Goodman, heard on his 2011 CD Cold Wind, an album ideal for autumn and winter. Thinking of songs relevant to past memories, I continued the theme with Roger Silverberg and Tom Principato. Tom’s blues led to more of the same by Professor Louie & The Crowmatix, then some modern folk (Spuyten Duyvil, DB Rielly) and another new instrumental from Karen Collins & The Backroads Band. Segment 3: Kosmic Daydream & Fellaheen are part of the upcoming NYC New Music Festival, spanning many venues across Greenwich Village. I also spun another new song from Churchill. Segment 4: Boxcar Lilies & Beggar’s Ride perform October 13th at Boroughs JCC in Westborough MA. Lara Herscovitch & Vance Gilbert perform 9/30 at The Complex Performing Arts Center in Putnam CT for the nationwide Voices United 3-day event. This event is benefiting Americans United for Separation of Church and State. There are concerts being held in all 50 states from 9/28 (today) to 9/30. Gregory Douglass, heard earlier in segment 2, is also participating on 9/30 in VT, as is Louise Taylor in HI, on 9/29. Jean Mann & Mare Wakefield perform at Egan’s Ballard Jam House tonight in Seattle. Final segment kicks off with brand new music by UK’s The Portraits. Their new album is actually being released in early November. The aforementioned was heard in this final segment as well. Anna Dagmar & Cosy Sheridan share billing at a house concert 9/29 in Columbia, MD. Their songs spun here, along with the mighty Anais Mitchell, touch upon childhood memories and some sort of dark past (Cosy’s song is one of a number of songs that explore the myth of Eros & Psyche).
