PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about September 18 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 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of each.
**
Outside of radio for a moment: I’m still dealing with heavy financial issues and am not sure I’ll have the most important of bills, the rent, paid this month. However there are some very positive changes afoot: I just landed some temporary work and have also begun to field some job interviews. Pending pre-employment matters, I might start in a week. All of this news built up on Friday. I’m practically mesmerized at the speed of it all! Top priority is getting all bills paid, and securing work in whatever form. My personal life will get a lot busier and that means a bit less time for radio work. But this is what I’ve asked for to get my life in order. These events could not have come at a more important time. Donations, of course, are certainly welcome. Your donations helped keep me off the streets before.
I’m not exactly in a celebratory mood. Moreover I am focused on getting the rest of the bills paid, and hoping to save money quickly. Until I find myself in more solid financial footing, I’m staying off the grid for any matters involving the music industry. The podcasts will continue on a weekly basis, time permitting.

********

The annotated notes of this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Carolann Solebello’s fourth solo album is released this month, with her brand of urban-folk reintroduced with a newer level of maturity in the songs. Von Shakes is the other NYC/Dublin based band I saw last month at The Grape Room here in Philadelphia, a edgy alternative pop-rock outfit. DP (Daniel Perez) presents indie hip-hop in a style comparable to Fun Lovin’ Criminals.
RCB proper: I retold my story about 9/11 and my gratefulness to be alive to tell the tale. Chris Pan’s 2006 album “All A Dream” is about his take on 9/11 in 3 different moods. Chris has a public-access program on Manhattan Neighborhood Network expanding on some of these ideals. Segment 1: Debut airplay for Matt The Electrician, who also appears on Rebecca Loebe’s recent album. Matt shared billing with Nels Andrews at Don Quixote’s in Felton CA on 9/11, then with Shinyribs (Ken Russell of The Gourds) at Palm’s Playhouse, Winters CA on 9/12. Segment 2 includes more new music from Australian bluegrass outfit Mustered Courage and Russian-American songwriter Marina V. Segment 3: Ellis and Roy Schneider are headline showcase participants at the South West Regional Folk Alliance Conference, held in Austin, 9/26-29. I kept to a rough roots and blues influence with this segment, ending in inspiration (Rani Arbo, Lisa Biales). Segment 4: Terry Rivel’s tune “Angel In Darkness” sounds an awful lot like Buck Owens’ “Streets Of Bakersfield” (could be just my ears). Three songs followed with foreign voices (one each Polish, Chilean, French).
