PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about February 13 and will be available
for about 1 year. 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 is a separate podcast with 6-8 songs, one each from a brand new
recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.

*****
Happy to report one element of the big vision is completing. I’ve landed a 3-month temporary assignment here in Philadelphia. I figure that my budget will be balanced out in a matter of 3-4 weeks. Looking into March, assuming the job is still there, I will be planning out shows to attend and review, along with possibly attending more courses at PhillyCAM, and seeing other ways to expand Radio Crystal Blue. I also am thinking about some New Age work that I could use for myself and others.

Do you know that I’ve now lived here 3 years already? I get reminders at times of who I am and what I’m learning . One quality is resilience. Not a coarseness or toughness, but something that resembles hardiness, much like the people that I associate with in Philadelphia. I want to live here as long as I’m able to.
I am always seeking new music for airplay. If you are aware of a strong concept or compilation that you’d like to hear, let me know. Ideally it should be one that I can feature track for track.
I’d also like some ideal opening music. Youv’e heard me spin anything from chicha, to chill, to ambient to standard. Any suggestions? Let me know!

RCB REWIND: Veteran Nashville-area music songwriter Wyatt Easterling returns with a new album, as do Shoebox Letters, a Portland OR indie rock band. Sharon Goldman, from NYC, also has new music as part of this show, (with some awesome personnel who recorded the album) and I included a song for that particular big holiday in February. Michael Jerling is also heard with his first new album in 4 years.

RCB proper: Beggar’s Ride & Disappear Fear perform at a benefit concert on February 15 in Baltimore. Hungry For Music is ‘an organization that brings musical instruments to underserved children’. These two groups, along with ‘Japanese-gypsy-rock’ band Kagero, make up the best segue from this show, focusing on open enemies. Another V-Day song (of sorts) from Jamie McLead Band appears in Segment 2. Segment 3 is a more folk oriented segment, including a delightful song from The Melodic Miners (not to be confused with The Miners, from Philly). Segment 4 has some songs of doubt and quiet acceptance all throughout. The Kennedys and Peyton Tochterman are at Burlap & Bean, in nearby Newtown Square, PA, on 2/22. Some wonderfully orchestral folk music heard following these in The Universal Thump and Sons Of The Never Wrong (hm, that might be a nice billing there).

*****************************
So I got the new mouse, an new CD player, and life continues to evolve, the vibrations to be raised. Had some minor health issues that seem to persist this week, and I’m taking life somewhat easier while pursuing work. I’m still averaging one job interview per week. I haven’t attended live events in a month but I’ll make an effort to do so before 4/30. I already have 2 events to attend in May, and I’ll give you more info during my next podcast.

Remember to send donations to RCB via the PayPal button at the home page.

Sending RCB love to those promoting the good word of my show these past 7 days:

 
For artists reading this: Be sure to add my email to your non-regional email list.

I plan to feature an album in a new CD Focus segment, in which case I’ll be spinning the contents, track-for-track. I do this for outstanding compilation and concept albums. In this new case, the album is the final one by the artist. If you have (or know of) a great album I should feature in this manner, send a message.

********
RCB rewind:

RCB Novus Ordo: Great quality as usual with this program, tho particularly so with the soul/folk hybrid sound of Chastity Brown. Alex Kelly, whom I interviewed earlier this year, is debuted, as well as The Parachuting Apostles, a Philly band hot on the rise. Lucas Rotman’s band Melodic Miners also debuts their newest album.
RCB proper: Reflecting on the passing of Richie Havens, I spun not only a tune from his final album (released in 2008) but also a tune from two of his contemporaries, the sainted Dave Van Ronk (traditional tune from an album containing rarities), and Vance Gilbert, who opened for Richie a number of times. Segment 1: Yes it was time to get holy in this segment but also somewhat secular, bridging earth to heaven; such was the theme here. Ashley McBryde is back on my radar. Her song “Holy Water” starts off with part of “Amazing Grace” and then turns into something much more contemporary. Elisa Peimer recently performed her first show with band in about a year. Segment 2: Alycea & The X Isles return to my spotlight as well. They, and Jean Mann are among many performing at the Tuscon Folk Festival on May 4. Segment 3: Peter Galperin returns with his first album in 2 years. I was positively amused with Chip Taylor & The New Ukranians and the song “Be Kind” which is spun here. I hear there’s a new album in the works by Chip alongsides. Carsie Blanton also has a new EP which you can hear me debut on this podcast. Segment 4: Very reflective in nature, starting with the aforementioned Jean Mann, plus Dan & Faith, both with songs about dreams. Ellis is back with a 2-CD set, from a live concert recorded at the White Bear Unitaritan Universalist Church in Mahtomedi MN. It’s arranged so you hear enough of the witty stage banter beforehand. Closing up is Andrew McKnight & Beyond Borders, with a song about a Montana town from their live album, recorded at the Franklin Parks Arts Center, Purcelville, VA.
