FANDALISM http://www.fandalism.com/radiocblue

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

NEXT SHOW will be published on or about May 23 and will be available for the

rest of the year.

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.There’s also at least one RCB tradition that will take place on this edition!

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.

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

I have a REVIEW at my website of a showcase I attended last Saturday (5/12) at The Grape Room here in Philly. I saw PaperDoll for the first time in years and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, along with Chris Schutz & The Tourists and Paige Allbritton. Full review at http://www.radiocrystalblue.net in the latest post.

CONNECTION: Aside to artists reading this missive: Is my email address on your general email list? I ask because I sometimes hear about artists who have shows and I don’t know about them via their emails until they are immediately ahead or after the fact. To a degree, I determine airplay on when artists announce their gigs and when the gigs occur, along with other news announcements. Be sure you have cblue456@comcast.net in your general (not localized) email list.

I want Radio Crystal Blue to be YOUR go-to freeform radio program.  Share my banner (which needs upgrading, I know), my links, my site, my blood type, what-have-you. Yes, I will link back.

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

TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: These are the last 5 folks that I’m following who

follow back: @ILoveNicoleShow @PhilHarrison @alecberlin @CariCole @annafermin

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

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.

 

I have not scheduled a show to attend but am planning to go to at least one in the metro area before the month is out.

I can advise artists about where to perform in Philly. Contact me for more info.

 

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

RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.

RCB Novus Ordo: The superbly creative NYC songwriter Alec Berlin kicks off this show. Gavilan, a roots-rock band from Philly, also debuts here. Another favorite here is Jenn Rawling & Basho Parks.

 

RCB proper: With the volume of material for this week’s show I did 5 segments worth. Segment 1 begins with John Batdorf, who is one of the official showcase performers at the SERFA Folk Alliance conference 5/18-20. Two others with this honor were heard in this segment: Marc Black (with a new CD), Honor Finnegan, and Emily Pinkerton, whom I debut on RCB Novus Ordo two weeks back. Ben Knighten debuts a CD in this segment, and a similarly titled song by Larry Saklad follows. Segment 2: Starts bluesy and especially in the matter of stimulants (Jack Grace, Rod Piazza, Terry Hanck, Tony Mecca). The Way Home and Automatic Children perform at this weekend’s Elephants For Autism Festival at Le Grand Fromage in Atlantic City. Montauk Music Festival is this weekend too (now you see why this show was longer than most). Here I spun music of Remember September, My Pet Dragon, debut CD by Kevin McWha Steele, and Deborah Lombardi, all of whom will be part of the 4th annual festival there on Long Island. Bryan Dunn’s new CD debuts on this show as well. Got more songwriter-oriented in the latter stages of this week’s show. Paired up songs about rain (Cary Cooper, Sarah McQuaid), and songs making a NYC reference (Natalia Zukerman, and a new album by Garrison Starr. Garrison sings on Natalia’s song “Brooklyn”). Garrison once worked with producer/multi-instrumentalist Neilson Hubbard on her albums; Amy Speace has Neilson in the producer’s chair for last year’s CD “land like a bird”. Amy and Ernest Troost are performing at this weekend’s Wildflower Arts and Music Festival. Ernest himself is a finalist in the festival’s songwriting competition. Out of segment 5: Sharon Goldman and Loretta Hagen peforming at Barrington Coffee House on 5/19.
