PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about June 5 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 10 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of each.

In case you wonder: I usually take out some part of Friday (or Saturday at this rate) and figure who to give airplay to. Artists and their reps are contacted by email days before airplay is granted.
5 YEARS AGO: Guess what music I spun 5 years ago this music? Among the notable that aired in late May 2008 are those remain on my current radar: Devon Sproule, Nerissa & Katryna Nields, Garrison Starr, Catie Curtis, and Arlon Bennett. I don’t have the audio of that show but I can give you this old playlist and more if you surf on over to http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/radiocrystalblue/message/2463
***
DONATIONS: Concerned about my financial footing but I remain somewhat hopeful in the opportunity of finding work on a regular basis here in and around Philadelphia. In the meanwhile, you may donate to Radio Crystal Blue via the PayPal button at the home page.
***
IDEALISTIC SPORT on hiatus: I’m putting aside Idealistic Sport, the sports/stats/music podcast for now. I have felt myself filtering content based on pressure from some areas in my life, enough to limit the quality and amount of content that would make a podcast viable in my own eyes. I will instead turn to small amounts of audio by using Chirbit, an audio-tweet service. It’s a service more people ought to use.. I’m there www.chirbit.com/radiocblue For posterity’s sake I’m keeping the podcasts active on my site so you can listen to the history being made. I can’t promise just now when it will return but I have no desire to take it down.
As always, all info is repeated on the Idealistic Stats blog, with occasional posts, further repeated at Glipho, Facebook and Twitter. The blog has the final answer about all stats/sources/analysis and opinion www.idealisticstats.wordpress.com
********
RCB Novus Ordo: Jan Seides received exposure on this program way back in 2003 and that continues to this day using the same formula as before, and with some awesome Austin-area studio personnel. Racing Rain is a noir-sounding band I saw at Cape May earlier in the year. Amy Lynn & The Gunshow I had seen several times. She is absolutely captivating with her voice. Grown Up Avenger Stuff I met at a GoGirlsMusic event here in Philly last year, great hard rock sound. Rachel Schain’s career I’ve tracked for a few years now, and was proud to attend her CD release event this year. Dar Williams. What else can I say? (Except to type that she is musing on mythology for her latest album).
RCB proper: I feel like spreading out the summer songs through much of the year and giving you a few songs at a time right at the beginning of every show. I have a larger-than-average appreciation for Shonen Knife. “Ramones Forever” is a faithful homage. Naturally I gave you two songs from Forest Hills, NY’s finest…creating something of a Cali summer segue. Earlier in the week I asked folks on social media to name their favorite humorous California-centered rock song. My answer “Dick’s Automotive” by The Rugburns. And if you like those apples, see Steve Poltz’s solo version of this tune on YouTube. You’re welcome. Congratulations to Ellis, Honor Finnegan and Paul Sachs among those who were among the winning 6 in the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Music Festival. Segment 1: Spun songs from those who are scheduled features in this week’s portion of the 18-day event. I included a song from a new album by Buddy Mondlock. I also hear that Butch Morgan and Jaime Michaels are planning new albums. Segment 2: Jessie Killguss & Radio Gold with a summery song here. Majority of songs here are reflective, idealistic in nature, taking life in perspective. New tune here also from veteran Chicago blues performers John Primer and Bob Corritore. Segment 3: The Wyld Olde Souls get a long-waited debut here. I’m in love with David Rogue’s sound, not to mention his vocal strength. That’s the kind of voice I want to have when I grow up. Aqua Cherry with a new EP, the title track far and away the best of the bunch. Boy + Kite from TX also return with a new EP, a nod to classic indie label stuff from the 80’s-90s (think My Bloody Valentine, Boo Radleys, 4AD label, etc.). Segment 4: Marci Geller, Lara Herscovitch are part of the Herland Music Festival on Sunday 6/2, Stafford Springs, CT. Marci, along with Steve Chizmadia are among those performing at the NERFA Capital Region 1-Day Mini-Conference. This takes place on 6/9 in Rockville MD. Buskin & Batteau, along with Noel Paul Stookey and other great songwriters will gather on Saturday June 1, for a benefit concert in College Park, MD. The concert benefits the World Folk Music Association. Final segment: Heather Maloney was debuted 2 weeks prior on RCB Novus Ordo, and we hear more magic from her s/t album kicking this segment off. A slight theme about the elements at play here. Heather, plus Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem are part of the Asparagus Festival, Sunday 6/2 in Hadley, MA. Raina Rose is about to unveil a new album. Yours truly had the opportunity to air a track before the official release date. She and Rebecca Loebe are part of the CD release event on 6/13 at Austin’s Cactus Cafe.

RCB Quarterly Airplay Chart was published on Tuesday. Vance Gilbert continues to rank high on the quarterly charts. Brother Sun, on the strength of their new album “Some Part Of The Truth” debuts at #4. The Steel Wheels, who have just sent me their latest, are at #17. The chart is the best snapshot I can provide outside of playlists and audio files for you to see what I’ve been spinning the most as of late. Full details at
https://radiocrystalblue.net/chart-page/

IDEALISTIC SPORT is my newest podcast, fully unrelated to music. If you hunger for out-of-the-box opinion, a unique take on sport stats, even insightful predictions, this new show is for you. Content will focus mainly on minor and individual sports instead of teams for the most part. I’m recording the charter program today (Friday) and will have that available in a new FeedPlayer URL. As you know, FeedPlayers are positively viral. Access the shows at www.bigcontact.com/idealisticsport along with overlighting blog posts, which will be the final word of all predictions and summaries, at www.idealisticstats.wordpress.com

If you are a musician that would like to submit to this program for use as intro and outro segment, or to fill in the spaces between segments, just send a message.
 
Got a message from a Philly-oriented filmmaker who plans to do a unique documentary about musician Kenn Kweder. Billed at once as a madman, a genius, even “The Mayor Of South Street”, his story goes back some 40 years. He is still actively performing in the Philly area. I imagine that he had a big underground following even in the 70s; ideally I would have spun his music even in those halcyon days, perhaps alongside folks like Dave Rave from Canada. Director John Hutelmeyer has begun a crowdfunding campaign; already the film has received 12% funding toward its goal. You can do your part by watching the trailer for the campaign and sending some $ their way at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-kenn-kweder-documentary

********
RCB rewind:
RCB Novus Ordo notably debuted Reverend Freakchild this week. Liner notes suggests some rather tall tales from start to finish, even suggesting the man passed away 8 years ago. The tales really are that tall. He is still among us, and his take on traditional tunes are new and fresh. Stephen Lee Rich (@OldYodeler on Twitter) returns with a new album. Lubbock, TX’s Jenni Dale Lord makes a great Americana debut here as well.
RCB proper:Segment #1: from rockabilly to modern folk and back we went, including new tunes from Sassparilla out of the Pacific Northwest, who have their own stamp on roots music. Segment #2: Spun another from South Korea electronic rock band Love X Stereo, alongside more synth from my favorite song by Blue Sour. Segment #3: Speaking of Brother Sun, I love their take on U2’s “In the Name Of Love”. Folks, you know I don’t care for covers all that much except to understand where an artist is coming from. But, if it must be done, it should be finely obscured so as to gently hint to the original, and to make it further original. The trio do it very well on their new album. Chris Riffle and Brian Dolzani are taking part in this weekend’s HartFolk Festival in West Hartford, CT. Songs relevant to home were predominant in this segment (Virginia in particular, courtesy of Andrew McKnight and Rani Arbo). Segment 4: Songs took a rather utopian and altruistic tone, notably from Noel Paul Stookey and a new song from Craig Sonnenfeld.
