Camera is back, all shiny and new, and totally worth the $32 plus round-trip bus to get to NYC and back. Yes, I trudged to Union Square, did a fair amount of walking, and caught my NYC stride without missing a beat. I put said camera to good use on 10/16 seeing 2 bands at The Grape Room. More on this event at my website, right about here: https://radiocrystalblue.net/2012/10/17/the-grape-room-101612/
PHOTOS from 10/16 are here:

Also there are more videos from the 10/11 event at Milkboy Philly elsewhere on www.youtube.com/user/cblue456

COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews along with 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’ve done this work for free, but that may
change soon. Also, with the video skills I’m learning, I might do more
video oriented work in the future.

11/3: Katie Barbato, Ginger Coyle, Danielle Miraglia at Sine Studios

RCB REVIEW:
RCB Novus Ordo: Kicking off this edition is music from Tora (Fisher), with a most unique
view on songwriting from the heart. We Are The Woods resurfaces with a slightly different lineup but continues blazing musical trails. Marci Geller is a Long Island NY artist with Vance Gilbert doing backing vocals on the song I spun “No Weather Down”

RCB proper: Even before programming this week’s show I knew that it would be full with music by artists who are participating at FAR-West this week…the Western states region of Folk Alliance International. Included within 2 segments worth is new music by Nels Andrews (in the same company of friends like AJ Roach, Raina Rose, et al.), and more new songs by Severin Browne and Chico Schwall. Severin’s tune “To The Light” has co-writing credit with veteran bassist/songwriter Freebo, also part of this special pair of segments. The K’s are breaking up, and for certain. I had followed their career since they began their initial radio campaign in 2005 and it was back in 2006 I had first given airplay to the first of their three albums. I will miss them. There was death and some elements of doom and gloom that came through the lyrics. Some of it happened in real life to them as well. That’s why I spun the songs I chose this week. From the standard segments: Tania & The Revolutionaries will release a new EP soon. Jeneen Terrana & Amateur Blonde share a bill 10/19 in NYC, part of the big CMJ experience. Hudson K & Avi Wisnia likewise with a CMJ show. Gave you some blues/rockabilly in my 2nd proper segment (Brother Joscephus, Vintage Blue, Voodoo Swing, Zac Mac Band). Patti DeRosa shares bills in the next month with Daphne Lee Martin & Beth DeSombre. I had built a whole segment around Rebecca Loebe, who also releases new material. She shares a bill on 10/20 wtih Curtis Becraft and Fred Gillen Jr, and later into November with Jesse Terry and Sarah Blacker (the latter two with new music). Final segment includes new music from Beaucoup Blue (who I saw earlier in October).Honor Finnegan and Anna Dagmar share billing on 11/3. This segment also has songs that feature danger, hope, longing for ease.
AIRPLAY SUBMISSION:
Most submissions will be geared toward RCB Novus Ordo.

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

****************
I felt a real sense of outspokenness this week, and vented the old spleen in my kindest and most heartfelt way. I normally hold back, but this time around I decided to just let it all out. I didn’t care as to who would reply or how. I think the catalyst was actually having a temp gig which lasted all of 2 days, where my mind and heart did a 180-degree turn. I felt my intense sensitivity and at once the willingness to express it.
Not a day goes back where, at least in the online world, I touch minds, hearts, and funny bones. I recall the late Jim Valvano’s last public appearance, at the ESPY Awards, March 1993. This quote gets to me: “If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.”
This isn’t a personal credo for me, but I find myself often either in thought, or emotionally aware of something in myself or others, and often come up with something so funny to me, that it registers just as funny to someone else. The trick is conveying those feelings, thoughts, and magic when typing it on Facebook, or Twitter, or…even,yes… on Radio Crystal Blue. I do more than just spin songs. I share some personal thoughts, some anecdotes, some scenes from my life (tho I will often hide specifics to protect the guilty), and just be real.
So, I further encourage you to listen to my show, and in the words of Philly legend Bill Cosby “…and if you’re not careful, you may learn something before it’s done.”

INTERVIEW:
The veteran Colorado-based songwriter/bandleader Chris Daniels chatted with yours truly on September 10th, via Skype. Chris and I talked about his band, the Kings, a bit about life, health, politics, and other matters. The interview went about 40 minutes and it was just awesome to hear his stories, including the making of his first solo album “Better Days”. Chris pretty much predates the Colorado music scene proper. You can hear this interview at my ‘field recording’ FeedPlayer, accessible in the same manner you can hear Radio Crystal Blue, tho at a slightly different locale: http://www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalbluefield This player is also available through my website, and you can stream, share and download the audio from this and other interviews.
http://www.chrisdaniels.com

COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews along with 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.
Here are the shows I’m planning to see:
9/29: Philly native and West Coast denizen Jeff Campbell returns to his
roots, and plays The Grape Room http://www.jeffcampbellmusic.com
9/15: Lotus Hill releases a new CD at Milkboy’s Center City locale.
http://www.lotushillband.com
10/11 Blag’ard, a classic rock duo from NC, play at JR’s Bar, not far from yours truly in South Philly
http://www.blagard.com
10/19: Post-punk alt-country songwriter Freddy Hall (The Best Intentions) performs at The Grape Room http://www.freddyhallmusic.com
I also do audio interviews at live events and also via Skype (cblue456)
***********************
RCB REVIEW:
RCB Novus Ordo: Standout out tunes from this edition include roots rockers Cletus Romp from Cincinnati, uptempo rock from upstate NY’s Oxford Train, and lovely Brazilian music from Carla Hassett.

RCB proper: Second consecutive week I begin with Pamela Wyn Shannon’s music, digging into her 2007 release “Couring Autumn”. Segment 1 includes contemporary songwriters. Meghan Cary, Craig Sonnenfeld and Elaine Romanelli, spun consecutively, perform at the Haverford (PA) Music Festival 9/15. Segment 2 gives us blues (Bob Corritore, Rod Piazza & The All Mighty Flyers heard here; Bob guests on his birthday with Rod’s band 9/29). Shupikai is a jazz/blues instrumental project led by NYC’s Bob Petrocelli. The transition to louder rock came easy as I spun another by The Trapps, plus music by ‘glamwave’ duo Girls On Film (yes, they love all things Duran),and a newer tune by NYC’s PaperDoll. Segment 3: Justin Roth, The Steel Wheels, and John McCutcheon performed at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield KS on 9/13. McCutcheon’s CD is homage to Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday. Blue Coin have an intriguing folk sound, somewhat spacey tune spun here. Sam Otis Hill & Co., Greg Klyma & Sarah Blacker, perform at the New England Americana Festival at the sainted Club Passim, 9/15. Sarah’s tune is the title track of her new EP. Segment 4: Avi Wisnia & Arlan Feiles performed at Milkboy Coffee’s Center City location on 9/12 for the latest installment of The 9…9 songwriters on one bill doing 3 songs each. I just had to spin Aztec Two-Step’s ode to Olga Korbut and the remembrance of dark days on what’s been 40 years since the Black September incident in Munich. Songs of healing and hope close this out: Red Molly with one of Molly Venter’s own songs, and a live recording of Craig Bickhardt (Sellersville Theater, Sellersville, PA).
