NEXT SHOW will be published on or about November 14 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.

For this and the next several weeks I am bfeaturing a Nanci Griffith tribute
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

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.

PhillyCAM: I’m happy to announce that I’m now a producer for this new public-access television network. PhillyCAM contains both live and on-demand programming by and for Philly residents and non-profits. The network contains has no restrictions against free speech tho certainly adheres to FCC guidelines about broadcast content. I have completed courses in both production and production management, and may soon enroll in a digital editing course to exercise more creative control on content I create. I’m excited to get started! I want to make a difference with this work on the local level, be it my own program or assisting on others’. I have a few ideas. How about you? www.phillycam.org

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.
Right now I’m a free agent, no gigs scheduled in the next 4 weeks. Got leads on a gig to see/cover in the metro area?
RCB REVIEW from this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Happy to debut music from acclaimed songwriter Don Gallardo (and How Faw West). Susan Margolis, whom I recall seeing fronting NYC bands like Mouse and The Owl Motel, resurfaces with The Rosewood Girl. That Noise from California ride the leading edge of indie-pop. Thomas Patrick Maguire is a leading light in NYC’s antifolk scene.

RCB proper: As you might expect, with the annual Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA to you and me) conference in Kerhonkson NY this week, I did devote a fair amount of airplay to artists performing 2 of the major showcases there. Within, we hear newly released music from Bobtown, Jesse Terry, Anna Dagmar and Beaucoup Blue. Also… segment 1: Natalia Zukerman & Ellis are participating in Lamb’s Songwriter’s Retreat this weekend in Harbor Springs, MI. New music from Pi Jacobs in this segment. Segment 2: Justin Levinson & Peter Buzzelle participate in International Pop Overthrow 2012 in Boston. Segment 3: Oustanding songwriting from Megan Slankard and Fred Gillen Jr. (Fred’s song about Halloween and war veterans is very well done). Fred, along with Matt Turk, are at the ASK Gallery in Kingston NY on 11/16. Segment 4: 2 years after its release, got you some music by Lucy Wainwright Roche (daught of Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche), and is already preparing a 2013 release. It wouldn’t be November without Craig Sonnenfeld’s “November’s Song”, nor Mark Erelli or Jean Mann’s song about moons.

Most submissions will be geared toward RCB Novus Ordo.

CDs MUST have a 2012 or 2013 release date
Digital is acceptable if media is not available in other formats.
If material is from 2011, I will add to the RCB rotation but will not get
debut on RCB Novus Ordo. Instead it will be added to RCB’s loose rotation.
Artists are also advised to add my email address to their general email

I also accept EPKs through these companies. For EPK submissions I select
artists on their body of work and the completeness of the press kit.
