PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about November 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 8-10 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you the backstory of each artist.
I will also air more music from “Esperanza: Songs From Jack Kerouac’s ‘Tristessa’
___
Away from radio, I’m busier with job interviews and money matters. Every day, I feel closer to finding work. Another way of seeing it suggests I’m a day closer to eviction proceedings. I choose to balance everything out and fully intend on the most positive learning experience from every situation. I give attention only to the forward progress of my chosen path. That path includes putting energy into my creations, especially this program. It’s wonderful to get such good feedback from people, sometimes from the artists themselves.The reality of the situation (my reality, ultimately) is that I must raise enough $ to keep myself living here, and to have the means beyond that to get the rest of my life in order and do a radio program. As mentioned up top, you can go to www.radiocrystalblue.net to donate to the cause. The attitude remains focused and vigilant above all. All I can ever want is your assistance to see me through this situation, as you have done before.

It’s good to have the PC back as I am reclaiming some lost downloads and download codes, plus getting a better sense of the RCB rotation as things stand.

My vision is still intact. It’s what I’d do if money truly were no object. It’s how I’d live my life. Read on: https://radiocrystalblue.net/2013/07/28/my-personal-and-radio-vision/
HOLIDAY music: My last show for the year will be the week of December 15. This is the annual show focusing on seasonal music for this time of the year. If you know of artists who have music for Christmas or similar end-of-year holidays, or even simply for December, have them send it along.

RCB REWIND:
RCB Novus Ordo: Miss Tess & The Talkbacks begin this edition with a new album. I spun the title track, the lone original among 8 songs, tho the original does have a Hank Williams Sr feel to it. Voice Of Addiction also returns to the airwaves here; they the leading lights of Chicago-area punk. DownTown Mystic has one foot in classic rock, one in modern, and has serious personnel aboard for their latest album. Jeanette Lynne’s heartfelt style is quickly winning fans. I first saw Jeanette on a showcase event here in Philly. Mabel 1918 is the former band Glasgow.
RCB proper: The influence of the annual Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference was fully present this week. This conference, which took place in Kerhonksen, NY from 11/7 to 11/10, presented artists in a series of showcases, both private and public among the number of events held there over the four days. In 3 segments you heard me spin music from the major showcases, both formal and ‘quad’. We hear Buddy Mondlock among the formals, and more new music from Disappear Fear, Roy Bookbinder, Harpeth Rising and Spuyten Duyvil among the Quad showcase participants. As for the standard segments: Ellis toured last week across TX with her fellow Kerrville Music Festival New Folk competition winners. The tour culminated at the final edition of the Rice Festival in Fischer TX, with Sarah McQuaid & David Wilcox also part of the large lineup. Also returning to the RCB airwaves is DP, with a good mix of rock and hip-hop. Heather Pierson released her new album this past week and I debut this in the 2nd standard segment. Segment 3: Matt The Electrician is opening act for Kris Delmhorst at Austin’s Cactus Cafe on 11/14. Danielle Miraglia & Greg Klyma share billing at Rochester NY’s Tango Cafe on 11/16.

Situation at home hasn’t changed that much from last week; this on top of dealing with the worst (as yet) of the summer’s heat, and a lack of job opportunities. Yes, I remain hopeful as time drifts, despite all that’s happening around me. I still plan to do a new pair of shows each week.Radio Crystal Blue is a reporting station to The Alternate Root, the largest indie music magazine devoted to Americana and roots (and subgenre American Roots). I’m also active in doing sales for the magazine, with opportunities for songwriters and bands to have ads appear in banners across the website, along with similar placement in weekly emails. Please contact me directly for more. <a>www.thealternateroot.com</a> for the rest of the story.

5 YEARS AGO this week here’s a sampling of names whose music aired: Falu. Tori Sparks. BD Lenz. Locksley. Lara Ewen. Natalia Zukerman. Carsie Blanton. One-Eyed Doll (they have since blown up). Locksley (ditto). Debuted: Kaiser Cartel. Featured: The Love Kills Theory, The Chapin Sisters. More where this came from at http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/radiocrystalblue/message/2505
********
RCB Novus Ordo: Chris Darrow & Max Buda, late of an obscure 60’s psychedelic rock band called Kaleidoscope, present the 2nd album of a trilogy, this with an island theme. Lots of blues music entered my library all at once, and much of this genre takes up this show. Most notable of the submissions comes from Too Slim & The Taildraggers. Roy Bookbinder’s new album is also a delight.RCB proper: My CD player failed me and I had to go to an ancient backup, which did not take lightly to my CDs. I had to go through a hellish period of editing to make the show seem fluid. Skipping tracks are tedious to correct; you have my apologies in advance for any of those hiccoughs that occur in the audio. The only real solution is to buy a new player, and I resent doing this as I’ve no budget for one. Meanwhile…. another relatively short show in terms of time. Segment 1 contains more new music from Brickwall Jackson and Sassparilla. Annalise Emerick’s “A Runner And A Singer” references both July and December as the setting for the song. Segment 2: Aired more new music from pop songstress Brittnee Belt, and rockers Chris Head & The Honchos.The Pinz (whom you know I just love), and Boy + Kite are part of the Center Of the Universe Festival, Tulsa OK, 7/19-20. Segment 3 with brand new blues albums debuted back-to-back: Kirsten Thien with a recording from Bremen, Germany, and Brooks Williams somewhere in the UK. Barnstar! is heard with a Tommy James & The Shondells cover in the supergroup’s own bluegrass style. Jann Klose’s “Still” is my current favorite from the German songwriter’s new album “Mosaic”. Segment 4: Katie Barbato and Suzie Brown (and Prima Donna, heard in Segment 2), took part in the Ladybug Festival on 7/18, Wilmington DE.
