************************************************
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about May 2 and will be available for the rest of the year.
Owing to schedule demands, I usually aim for noon 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
as many as 8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each
artist.
*********************************************************************************
Firstly, I must acknowledge the death of a radio hero, Pete Fornatale, who was one of several inspirations for Radio Crystal Blue many years ago. My condolences are posted elsewhere on the Web. I hope that I can make as much of an impact in people’s lives as he did. I will have a dedicated audio segment focusing on his influence at some point in the next show.
Apart from from learning about music (and radio) from Pete’s example, news came down that Kiss-FM, an R&B/hip-hop programmed station in NYC is also biting the dust, with sports programming taking over.   I have good memories of hearing music in the mid-80’s on this station. It will be missed.  I don’t mind sports programming, so long as it’s sports itself and not so much sports talk.  Still, one more station without music programming takes away more memories from all of us (not to mention royalties).

Fandalism is an invite-only social media website that’s just appeared on the greater Web radar. I’ve just joined tho I’m not exactly certain of its goal outside of friending/following/liking. Initially I see a lot of musicians and producers worldwide, not just the US contingent. http://www.fandalism/radiocblue

The Discussion group is kinda dormant.  Feel free to discuss RCB at http://www.facebook.com/groups/273953255983866/

I’m planning to go to a showcase at The Fire on Saturday. I don’t know any of the artists. That’s the point. I come to be educated and entertained.  I’ll have some pics of the event next week.  I go to about 3-4 shows a month to do photos/video.
I haven’t had interview requests in a while but I wouldn’t mind doing a few.  I do have to upgrade my recorder tho.
My computer is flying strong, tho it still has some issues with audio quality.  I’m pretty confident it’s recording in stereo but my recording software seems to think it’s mono. It could well be the mixer I’m using. For you gearheads, I have a Behringer Eurorack UB802. It might need to be replaced. Anyone with ideas on this?

A simple question for you to answer: What does Radio Crystal Blue mean to you?

*****************************************************
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.
Planning to work on 4/28. No other gigs on the horizon just yet.
********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Songwriter-activist Lara Herscovitch returns with a new album. Some of the songs focus on the prison population in the US. Arthur Nasson has a new exuberant album that’s all over the musical map.   Adler & Hearne’s new album was recorded at Eddie’s Attic in GA.  Ronstadt Generations are 2 generations of musicians. Michael J. is Linda’s brother; he is joined by sons Michael G. and Petie on the CD “Lulo”, full of music inspired by life experience in the Southwest across 5 generations.

RCB proper: With the passing of Levon Helm of The Band, I memorialized him with 2 songs to kick off this show.  First was Professor Louie and The Crowmatix, whose history is well intertwined with The Band’s. “Restless Islands” features Levon on mandolin.   “Life Is A Carnival” is also covered by The Crowmatix, tho I opted to spin the original here.    the matthew show recorded a song at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis back in February, and this kicks off segment 1. Following this up was a song similar in rhythm and vibe by Deborah Lombardi. She and Josh Joffen performed at a new venue, 89 North, in Patchogue (LI), NY last night.  How about two songs with tuba? Jim Boggia and Tracy Bonham feature this instrument. Both appear at Rockwood Music Hall (NYC) on 4/30.  Within segment 2: My Pet Dragon and Levee Drivers are part of the Launch Music Festival in Lancaster PA tonight. Segment 3: Spun from the new album by DC’s Karen Collins & The Backroads Band, then following up with other Americana/folk groups. Segment 4 began with some statements about American life (Aztec Two-Step, Vance Gilbert).

All you have to do is a search on these sites for Radio Crystal Blue.

Any compelling compilation/concept CDs can also be sent here directly. I’m
seeking material that can be featured, song-for-song, in my CD FOCUS
segments.
