NEXT SHOW will be published on or about November 21 and will be available
for about 1 year. Remember, even if you miss hearing a show the week I
record, you can always find it within the FeedPlayer’s archive of older
shows. 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
8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each artist.

PROGRAMMING NOTE:
On the next show I will conclude the debut airing of a Nanci Griffith tribute album
released by Huntington NY label Paradiddle Records. Titled “Trouble In The
Fields: An Artists’ Tribute To Nanci Griffith”, it contains music from
artists you’ve heard on my show plus others of their caliber. The album also
contains a narrative by Pete Kennedy. Profits from the sales of this album
benefit Mines Advisory Group. More about this album at:
www.paradiddlemusic.com www.maginternational.org

I already have another concept CD that will debut on the show after next, which is the week of 11/25.

Also for the 11/18 experience, I’m briefly reviving the New Music Sampler segment, to give airplay to artists that have been on my waiting list the longest. It will be like RCB Novus Ordo tho in a smaller, even friendlier form.

HOLIDAY music is now being accepted for airplay, both in digital and hard
copy (preferred) for Radio Crystal Blue’s final show of the year, dated for
the week of 12/16. Anything appropo for the time of the year (doesn’t have
to be Christmas!!) from indie/underground/DIY/touring artists will be
considered.

I’m still pretty excited about working in new media and getting to work on projects that will be insightful and fun for Philly residents to view. I am a few ideas in mind, and yet there isn’t much I really can do until I take a few more courses and have a crew ready to assist. No clue when more classes from the public-access network will be ready yet.
****
COVERAGE: 3-4 times a month I go out to Philly-area gigs to do photos, some
video, and a write-up on my website afterward. I do this for free, tho at
some point in the future I might want to barter this work or be simply paid.

I was at a showcase at Philly’s Kung Fu Necktie on Sunday 11/12.

NEXT shows I’m covering:
11/23: @ M-Room, Philly: Grown Up Avenger Stuff, Lori Citro among 5 female-fronted bands in a GoGirlsMusic event, with proceeds to benefit Philabundance and Wreaths Across America www.grownupavengerstuff.com www.gogirlsmusic.com

I’m looking for at least 2 more events to cover in December in or around the Philadelphia metro area.
**************
Outside of radio for a moment. I received a note from Nina Gray, who manages the folk-rock duo-led band of Buskin and Batteau. Nina received a phone message from Bethany Yarrow (daughter of Peter), who runs The Action Center in Far Rockaway, NY. Bethany reported on the living conditions of families in the area, and about The Action Center’s place in the community. It truly exists to help bring more creativity and postiveness to the area. Bethany says it’s the only place in the area that is acting as a supply distribution center. Soon it will also be a warming center. You can contribute to The Action Center at www.theactioncenter.com Nina’s full note on Facebook is here: http://www.facebook.com/notes/nina-gray/hurricane-sandy-aftermath-what-bethany-yarrow-is-doing-how-you-can-help-with-tha/10152271993140788

RCB REVIEW from this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Among the notable, you’ll hear new music from Philadelphia’s pre-eminent Celtic-folk ensemble RUNA to start off, along with transgender songwriter-activist Ryan Cassata, and Paris-based Matthias Strum.
RCB proper: Segment 1: Loretta Hagen & Danielle Miraglia share billing on 11/17 in Macungie, PA (had to look that one up). Spun more new music from Sarah Blacker and Darlingside in this segment too. These artists already performed at the Red Door in Portsmouth NH on 11/12. Segment 2 includes brand new music from solid alternative rock band Mercury Morning. The original Red Molly trio are heard in this week’s listen to “Trouble In The Fields”, the Nanci Griffith tribute album I’ve aired the last several weeks. Segment 3 contained a rather depressive vibe sorts. Lorraine Leckie released new CD with co-conspirator Anthony Haden-Guest this week. I can only imagine what celebrity LL was referencing in the song I spun. Elaine Romanelli & Anna Dagmar to share billing at a house concert in Franklin NY on 11/18. Final segment: Along with Stevie Coyle’s “Penny Wishes” was a tiny preamble containing some banter from a carny advertising cojoined twins. You’d have to hear it, I suppose. I also segued Lara Herscovitch’s “From A Bridge” (inspired by the Grand Canyon) with Heather Pierson’s meditative piano instrumental, referencing her birthplace of Joplin, MO.

AIRPLAY SUBMISSION:
Most submissions will be geared toward RCB Novus Ordo.
