THE ALTERNATE ROOT:
I’m proud to announce here that I’m joining the folks at The Alternate Root. I am assisting with advertising sales for the top music magazine devoted to American Roots, both worldwide and in the Internet world. At the heart of my own choices of genre (and I like just about all of them), some of my favorites do comes from Americana, roots, alternative-country, and close-knit sound-alikes to these. Sounds that should, and do, feel familiar, fresh, broken-in like your favorite pair of jeans or boots.
The Alternate Root operates a weekly magazine in print and online, along with a weekly airplay chart, a TV program that reaches millions nationwide along with its presence on the website, and of course, the latest in newly released material. In fact, this week the website lists their top 35 artists based in East Nashville.
As a reporting station to their Roots 66 Airplay Chart, I’m well-versed in knowing who are new and breaking to their radar, and some of that info translates to Radio Crystal Blue. Building upon this knowledge and with my years of experience doing radio and connecting with industry people over time, this alignment is a new and important step in my professional growth. There are a number of areas The Alternate Root provide for advertising and I’m happy to shed more light on this if you are willing to inquire. http://www.thealternateroot.com
********
RCB Novus Ordo: There’s a good buzz here in Philly about indie-pop rockers Looseleaf Trio, whom debut here. Fallen Riviera also debuts; they were first heard about a year ago on this program. Scranton, PA’s Silhouette Lies have a post-hardcore rock thing going on which I’ve seen in person and I’m now a convert. I was thoroughly impressed by the musicianship and production from Steph Barrak. Her music is easily the best I’ve spun from this program.

RCB proper: It was several years ago that my usage of music from the Grassy Hill New Folk Competition, part of the long-running Kerrville Folk Festival, served as the prototype for airplay features. I would spin the music of whichever finalists I had music of (or permission at least to spin of at least). From here I expanded to doing likewise with full showcase events and similar festivals. The idea was simply to be more inclusive of those who were not in direct focus for my airplay but who happened to share billing for an event or a festival or similar circumstances. This year, 7 finalists at Kerrville were aired on this week’s podcast. Also here I aired Pat Wictor’s ode to the campfire experience at Kerrville. In the opening segment, I included 2 short pieces with the now late keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and iconic Beat poet Michael McClure. From here, naturally, a Doors song came to mind..and then a gently intro to summer, saluting graduates and the sun alike (a well-produced piece by Baz Luhrmann, and NYC underground rockers Heth & Jed). Segment 3: Spuyten Duyvil & Bobtown share billing at Urban H2O in Yonkers NY on June 8. James Hearne, who fronts Philly’s own The Way Home takes a solo turn with an absolutely new song. Segment 4: Jo Wymer & Danielle Miraglia bring the blues in this one. Both songwriters are at the FMCU Coffee Beanery on June 8 in Media, PA. You also get to hear more new music from Polarcode, making bigger splashes in the Midwest. Segment 5: More featured performers at Kerrville in focus here, including brand new music from the almighty Amy Speace. Her songs on the album “How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat” are prefaced in the liner notes with Shakespearean references (“Hesitate” which I spun, aligns with the end of “Romeo & Juliet”. Listen and figure why) plus a fun tune from The Sweetback Sisters, and a rather engaging song from Nels Andrews (who really should be aired more often). Segment 6: Mary Gauthier. What more to say? This: Debut of a new album, her first live album at that, and twinned here with The Steel Wheels, who have a new album and a good late spring song. Both perform at Roots On The River, Bellows Falls, VT on 6/9. Final segment presents a new version of the matthew show’s “Bring Me Safely Down”, along with brand new music by Craig Sonnenfeld. The songs in this segment hope more than anything else. Closed out with Heather Pierson’s piano composition, as she reflects on the Midwest weather.

IDEALISTIC SPORT aired music from these artists this past week: Annie Wenz, Theopolis James, Song Dogs and Fellaheen. I’m continuing to seek music that would befit a sports theme or otherwise be something upbeat to fill in the time, so as not to make the show a sermonette.
