PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about July 3 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 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of each.

CD FOCUS: I continue to seek very good concept/compilations for future shows, with albums I can feature track-for-track. Do you know of one? Send it along!
**
CHART: Quarterly Airplay Chart is now available on the Chart tab of the website. Aztec Two Step has charted well as of late, and gathers its first #1 quarterly ranking. Those with the most songs aired in the quarter include Meghan Cary, Dana & Susan Robinson (biggest debut this quarter) and Greg Klyma. Full details https://radiocrystalblue.net/chart-page/
5 YEARS AGO: Artists who debuted on RCB Novus Ordo in 2008 this week include Swampdawamp (this generation’s Lynyrd Skynyrd), The Paper Raincoat (Amber Rubarth, Alex Wong). In the standard rotation among the many that were heard, I gave you Marwood (Benji Rogers’ music project which would soon give way to his organization PledgeMusic), Deborah Lombardi, Sirsy, 3 Kisses (who have just released a new album), The Dollyrots (on Joan Jett’s label), Finespun, Spiraling (Tom Brislin’s former band), and Angelo M. Featured that week were Cassandra Kubinski, and the late Artie Traum.
And now to the present…
********
RCB Novus Ordo: The aforementioned pick up from where they leave off with a few new members, a new home base of Anchorage AK and a new album. Debbie Chou, late of NYC’s The Barrens, released her first solo album. Underhill Rose from Asheville NC is the newest female folk trio in the style of Red Molly reaching nationwide. Kagero I remember seeing years ago in NYC, with their practically trademark world/rock sound, and I’m happy to have debuted their latest here.
RCB proper: What prompted the opening music this week was the announcement of Kim Shattuck from The Muffs joining the Pixies for their 17-city Europe tour, and perhaps beyond. She’ll still front The Muffs tho. (“Agony” was the first I learned of theirs, back in the days when Iwas busy collecting magazine CD compilations). I spun music from both bands. Thee Headcoats were a fine example of UK garage rock, and you can hear where The White Stripes got some of their ideas from. Segment 1: Paul Sachs & Edie Carey shared billing at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall on 7/2. The Como Brothers recently debuted a new EP with a slight blues/pop feel, fitting in nicely with the sound of soul/rock artist M’Balia and blues veterans Bob Corritore & John Primer. Segment 2: Schwervon! just released a video for “Cyclone”, a song heard here. We hear again from Boy + Kite and Ryan David Orr who have new albums themselves. Segment 3: Molasses Creek’s ‘Fiddler” Dave Tweedie put words in an old instrumental “Mississippi Sawyer”. Natalia Zukerman & James McMurtry here, the latter from a CD recorded on James’ first tour of Europe. Both are participating in the Blissfest Music Festival on 7/14, Harbor Springs, MI. Sasha Papernik with a long summery tune closing this segment. Final segment includes another pairing of The YaYas and Honor Finnegan, completing a month-long tour.

PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about March 27 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.
*****************************
As I type this, I’m preparing to leave for Cape May and the town’s 6th annual Singer-Songwriter Festival. I’m MC’ing a showcase for Kat Falcey/Tunes2ya (www.tunes2ya.com ) at Aleathea’s Restaurant, inside The Inn at Cape May.

Somehow I plan to see as many artists as possible during the way as well as in the evening on Friday, plus Saturday during the day. Still figuring the lay of the land so I know just where to reach everyone.
 
I have modest expectations. There are 2 or 3 sessions that seem worth attending for this veteran radio person. I’m geared to meeting new faces and catching up to familiar ones.
 
Not much else to report otherwise, save the work I’ve done on my other blog. You know, the sports one www.idealisticstats.wordpress.com I’m compelled to write in it each day. I have thoughts this week on several different sports. And once you’re on that bicycle….
 
Still seeking a day job in the Philadelphia area. A lot of talk from all sides has resulted in just that: talk. I’m having to take more concrete measures as we proceed into warmer months. The savings are dwindling but my heart remains rather hopeful.

With every show, I continue to receive great compliments from both artists and listeners. I’m grateful for each single one. If I hold the logic of Mark Twain to be true, I just might live forever.

 
Keep the donations coming. Your efforts go directly toward getting some of the bills paid here, including the phone, Web, and the radio equipment. Use the Paypal button at the home page of my website.

RCB rewind: This program contained 10 artists who are performing at the aforementioned festival in Cape May. It dawned on me afterward that Brooklyn’s Annika Vitolo had already caught onto some fame, penning an ode to her home borough. It received a good deal of positive comments by readers of a once-local blog to me, Sheepshead Bites. I believe her fans had sent in photos of Brooklyn to use as the visual. I think my favorite of those I spun is the whimsical “Betty Lee” by John Beacher.

RCB proper: With SXSW in the rear view, a show of more normal length here, but also a ton of brand new music all across. First tho, inspired by Geoffrey Armes’ posting on Facebook of a Saint Etienne tune, it recalled the song “Spring” which I do spin at the beginning, along with other tunes that were popular in the UK in the late 80’s, early 90’s. I was busy collecting magazines like Alternative Press and SPIN, and later CMJ to understand what was happening. Segment 1: New music from Sasha Papernik is included. Garrison Starr’s song about Schoharie doesn’t leave much of a clue as to just where Schoharie is (tho I believe there is such a place in upper New York State). John Brodeur and Kevin McWha Steele are also performing at Cape May this weekend. Listen for the extra track after Kevin’s tune. Segment 2 went from blues to rock and back again. Brand new tuneage from Philly favorites Song Dogs (no more Nightjar), and the almighty rock duo Sirsy. I swear I have not heard Sirsy sound any better. Delorentos & The Bloody Five both perform north of the 48 for Canadian Music Fest this week. Then, Delorentos take an excursion to Moscow! Segment 3: Brother Sun resurface for a new album. Segment 4: One new song inspired by olden times from Dana and Susan Robinson, alongside a truly old song, one of the Child Ballads from Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer.
