****************

NEXT SHOW will be published on or about June 27 and will be available for
the rest of the year.
Owing to schedule demands, I usually publish on 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.

*******************

My quarterly CHART page will be updated in the first week of July, as I reveal who the most popular artists on my show are. I base stats on progressive amounts of airplay and recent exposure via the show. What’s the chart like at this moment? Read up at the chart tab of http://www.radiocrystalblue.net

Reminding you all that any compelling compilation/concept CDs can be sent
here directly. I’m seeking material that can be featured, song-for-song, in
my CD FOCUS segments. It’s been a while since the last feature.

I composed a short essay re the matter of album sales and the stances of several DJs and artists. I aimed to take an outsider perspective on the huge debate that took place on the Web this week. By now you know about what two DJs at NPR did, for the sake of honesty and space-saving (digital footprint if you will). One prominent artist spoke out against them on his blog. I give you my take in the latest post to my website: Mythical Album Dollars At Stake: Beyond Lowery vs. White. Read on at https://radiocrystalblue.net/2012/06/21/mythical-album-dollars-at-stake-beyond-lowery-v-white/

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.

Right now here’s what I’ve planned to see:

Voltheque is a local electronica band, performing at The Legendary Dobbs, 6/30.
http://www.facebook.com/Voltheque

Greta Gertler presents her band The Universal Thump at the Green Line Cafe, 7/19. http://www.theuniversalthump.com

One of the great Canadian bands ever, The Trews, play at The Grape Room on 7/25. http://www.thetrewsmusic.com

I’m seeking another show to check out before 6/30, and at least one more in early July.

*********************

RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.

RCB Novus Ordo: Jo Wymer presents an album of hard-hitting rock n’ roll. Fire On McGinnis bring a thoroughly modern rock touch to traditional and Celtic tunes (the song I spun, “Nancy Whiskey” mixes the sounds of bagpipes and guitars very well). Chantilly (Waryck) from Brooklyn has resurfaced musically with a new dreamy EP. A long call-response tune from the heartfelt songwriter Devirose rounds out this edition.

RCB proper: With a busy schedule and overall tiredness I got this show out to all of you on Thursday. I got my first Spotify signup in the process! Marina V and Manda Mosher perform at Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles on 6/24. Started with sunshiny pop in the beginning of segment 1, and then the clouds came in. Is there such thing as cloudy pop? Maybe so. Segment 2 presented another new song by Changing Modes, and a 2009 song from Brett Gleason, who makes his airplay debut for my show here. Segment 3 relies a lot on good harmonies. In particular is the change in harmony and mood from Ryan Tennis’ “Wicky-I-oh” and Emily Pinkerton’s “Negra”. The latter song stems from Emily’s study of Peruvian huaynos, mixed with a WV traditional song. Segment 4 starts with a brand new album by Anna Dagmar. Lucy Kaplansky is heard on backing vocals. Anna opens for Lucy at Tupelo Music Hall, Londonderry NH, 6/23.

************************************************

NEXT SHOW will be published on or about March 21 and will be available for about 4 months beyond. 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.

You’ll also hear: CD FOCUS:”Little Blue Egg” by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. This is a disc with 11 long-lost recordings found by Tracy 2 years ago, I will spin 2 tracks from this compilation. http://www.redhouserecords.com http://www.tracygrammer.com **********************************************************************************

Firstly I was under the weather much of this week, tho am emerging from whatever is ailing me, and also learning a few things about responding to people, emotionally and otherwise. I promised and delivered music from a number of artists that appear this week and weekend at SXSW. An entire segment was created around Megan Slankard, who was performing on several showcases along with fellow songwriters based elsewhere around the US. After remarking that it was time I got off the grid in terms of live local music, my computer chose to follow suit for a brief while. Web issues are largely resolved, tho I’m likely to get the PC an upgrade in RAM and maybe an external hard drive. New monitor also. I also want to continue bolstering the RCB idea to more folks, tho it all comes down to realistic expectations re the finished product, along with how much time and $ to devote to it. I still seek a day job within reasonable commute time of Philly.

REVIEW: I was at El Bar on 3/10/12, seeing local bands of some renown, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. When I say ‘go off the grid’, I mean seeing bands/songwriters I’ve never heard, in a place I’ve never been to before. I recommend doing this once every few months. Have a look at what happened in my latest review at http://www.radiocrystalblue.net

RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of my shows.

On RCB Novus Ordo: The smooth modern rock of Tom Fuller Band started this show. Spanking Charlene appears here with a song about a Brooklyn nabe (Steven Van Zandt in the producer’s chair). Secret Skwirl, a project borne out of remastered lost recordings and an unknown band is one to watch for. I’d love to see whether the guys behind that music will resurface. Wes Tucker & The Skillets with an album recorded live at Alene’s Grocery in NYC (you non-NYC denizens should know that Arlene’s Grocery is on the former site of a grocery). Folklore also debuts here with (classically) epic tales of dinosaurs, robots, apocalyptic matters (unless I’m confusing them with a certain UK band. Nah).

RCB proper: RCB tradition is for me to spin Iggy Pop’s “Caesar” and also some Celtic music. This year I reintroduced the music of Philly-area group RUNA. Avi Wisnia & Rachael Sage performed an SXSW event already this week, and Avi’s back to the East Coast touring as usual. Nice to have Remember September on the radar again here in segment 1. Segment 2 includes a brand new song by Schwervon!, a song recorded in Memphis. They are about to move to Kansas (and I feel like I’m among the last to know somehow). I’m used to MAKAR rocking out on earlier albums, tho I do like the groove on their new CD, which I spun from again. Remember September and Talking To Walls are playing a week-long music festival somewhere in NYC’s Upper East Side; my online notes don’t indicate who else is in the festival. TTW’s tune has bagpipes in it! My Pet Dragon shares billing with 3 Kisses and Manda Mosher at a Go Girls Music SXSW event on 3/17. As mentioned earlier, Megan Slankard’s appearing at various SXSW shows practically inspired a whole segment in itself. Again I spun from Jeff Campbell’s CD, the song he wrote with Megan. From there, we hear the lovely partnerships of Sproule/Curreri and Elkin/Schmidt, plus extra music from TX’s own Raina Rose (who’s now a mom), and a magnificent song from Rebecca Loebe, plus a new one from Sarah Blacker. Further segment includes some righteousness in song from Andrew McKnight and Sean Kershaw (listen for Pat Wictor on lap steel and vox). More SXSW love for Christina LaRocca and Casey Desmond. Carolann Solebello and Pat Wictor co-bill tonight (Friday) at Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem, PA.
