************************************************
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about June 6 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.
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.
*********************************************************************************
Lots to look forward to this week as I will be making up for much lost time, attending 3 music events. I’ll do my best to cover these shows and review right on my website.
I was at an orientation at PhillyCAM.org tonight in Center City, exploring the wide world of public-access TV, and to see where I might fit in. Workshops are beginning in late summer, with some free workshops very soon to be announced. I am finding an inner note sounding when I think about working the equipment. I desire to be a filmmaker, taking some of the work and ideas I’ve done in the past (and present) and bridging them into this medium. I’d also, ideally, like to further my study into photography. Along with exploring the career of community media I’m continuing to seek work matching my varied background. Typing this, I’m reminded that I have 2 resumes that should be linked onto my site. I will figure out how to do this shortly. It goes on the list.
Not for nothing I was at the opening of the latest Shake Shack branch, as it debuted in Philly at Sansom and 20th. Photos of the experience and some landscape photos of the area at
I revived my online ‘paper’ at http://paper.li/radiocblue/1333586729 It’s a good read, generated by keywords of subjects that fascinate me most and also pulls in URL’s from my social media feeds.

********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of the shows.
RCB Novus Ordo: Eric “Roscoe” Ambel and Phil Cimino help contribute to the roots rock sound of DL Marble. Venice Sunlight is an earnest, honest, enjoyable duo to listen for in Philly. Darius Lux brings the vintage R&B and the funk. Moot Davis and Penny Ney with some contemporary nods to classic country as well.

RCB proper: Segment 1 started off with Daniel Goodman and Paul Sachs, both of whom share gigs in NYC this week. Paul didn’t win at Kerrville for the New Folk competition; nevertheless you should hear this album “Oil Town” which continues to grow on me. Flo Anito, My Pet Dragon and Andy Hawk (and those Train Wreck Endings) are part of Celebrate Fairfax, June 8-10. Segment 2: Started a run of steampunk and modern folk. Spuyten Duyvil and Roosevelt Dime are part of XFEST in Telford PA on 6/9. Matt Turk, The Chapin Sisters, and Putnam Smith all perform at the Clearwater Great Hudson River Revival, the largest annual environmental celebration in the US. Matt’s tune is a Taj Mahal cover. Segment 3 includes another song from Ashley McBryde. It could just be my weathered radio ears, but her song “Whole Damn Thing” sounds an awful lot like Garrison Starr’s 90’s hit “Superhero”. Give a listen and compare. More songwriter fare in segment 4, featuring intimate songs from duos Adler & Hearne and Buskin & Batteau (listen for the warm Hammond). The Nields, sisters Nerissa and Katryna, have released a new album, which I debuted for you. It oriented segment 5 into songs about home. Continued the theme with the beloved Boxcar Lilies, who share personnel in Dave Chalfant. “Feels Like Home” is a Jenny Goodspeed composition. The Boxcar Lilies share stage with Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem, performing a benefit concert on 6/17 in Northampton MA. Piano and guitar fuel jazzy songs by both Jon Regen (busy touring in Europe) and Allison Scola. Allison performed at Caffe Vivaldi in NYC on June 6, her first solo show in 2 years. Spun another one from Marc Black’s latest CD. Closed with Beth DeSombre (Dave Chalfant on her album too) and Shanna Underwood, who are in the round with a new Kerrville New Folk winner, Alicia McGovern on 6/9 (tonite!) in Portland, ME.

************************************************
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about February 29
You will hear music in several segments of top indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.
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.
**********************************************************************************
Typing this week’s news while finalizing details of who will be aired on the next show. Should be a good deal of artists…as we come out of the Millenium Music Conference and Folk Alliance events, and head toward SXSW.  You might hear from artists playing SXSW, otherwise more in the next few weeks.  I am glad I had steered my airplay toward supporting artists whose music I have, spun right alongside those whom I target.
2 weeks ago I began to work as a reporting ‘station’ for Roots Music Report.  This organization has the definitive airplay chart featuring indie and mainstream artists in the Americana, Roots and other genres and subgenres. All the music that befits the airplay data is part of the master list.   Much more info at http://www.rootsmusicreport.com

Along the lines of roots and such, I have a question for you all (and those reading on facebook and via Twitter); what is your definition of folk? what is your definition of roots?  Here’s my two cents, one at a time:
FOLK is old-style journalism and editorializing.  Folk tells stories of what goes on down-home, across the hall or across picket fences to the neighbors. Folk comments on poliitics. Sometimes it even politicks.  Folks presents a sense of community, at once urban, rural, and metaphorical.  We can relate to the music. We can relate to the songwriter. It is our kin, our kinfolk, as it were.  Relatedness. Get it? Listen to storytellers in song like Danny Schmidt as a good example.
ROOTS music is about our yearning and search for one’s security, one’s roots, one’s place in one’s heart, one’s earth, one’s universe, as well as one’s community as with folk.  Roots takes us back in time; it doesn’t preach necessarily. There is a time warp, a reminder of days gone by, as you might have possibly remembered it, or even imagined it.  The first roots albums were in a comparative way, roots rock, such as Creedence Clearwater Revival’s take on rockabilly.  or Dylan’s ‘Blonde On Blonde’.  For an indie comparison, how about Kathleen Edwards, or Mark McKay?     And how do we explain Spuyten Duyvil, with those old-time instruments and a youthful spirit making songs fit for the urban landscape?  Or The Defibulators, who go steps further and brand something totally their own?
These 2 categories are highly subjective.   What are your definitions of these genres?

I’m typing this while preparing interview questions for Marybeth D’Amico. She is the opening act for Meghan Cary at Milkboy Coffee tomorrow night in Ardmore, PA.   Meghan is a client of RCB sponsor Ariel Publicity.   I think Marybeth and I met years ago in NYC and kept in sporadic touch over the years while she was in Germany.  Already you’ve heard music from her latest effort “The Light Inside”.  Now it’s my chance to see both Meghan and Marybeth. I’ll provide some photos and some video from both sets.

I’ve not yet received approval of my inteview of Lisa Biales. Once I do, itwill appear at my field recording FeedPlayer:  http://www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalbluefield

********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW:
On RCB Novus Ordo: One Alternative is a long-term, long-running musical project started by an oboeist and 2 guitarists. Essentially the project combines classical music, jazz, folk and other styles, and is purely instrumental.  Wampus Multimedia client Johnny J. Blair returns with a new album. I spun an updated and electrified version of the title track “I Like The Street”.  You’ve heard me cite Song Dogs & The Nightjar before; the local classic rock band gets their RCB debut here. Sarah Bowman (sister of Claire) returns to my airwaves with a new disc. I gave you a holiday tune from Gina Forsyth (re Mardi Gras Day);
RCB proper:  A few weeks ago I received a CD from Canada from the electronica group Forces Of Nature; the band is on a label by uber-DJ Clare Large. The music is deep house, some breakbeat and chill sounds alongsides.  The music is quite up my alley, and one track, “Statis” served as the opening music for my show.  Segment 1 went from organic songs (Aurical, The Symbols)  to depressing songs (Fellaheen, The K’s).  Dylan Connor’s new CD on Greta Gertler’s label (Goldfish Prize) is the fulcrum here. Dylan perorms ‘release’ shows in NYC, Philly and DC in the immediate future.  That electronic track before Dylan’s is also his; it sounds like an excerpt from a child’s first computer game.  Segment 2: includes another from the new album by My Pet Dragon, they share billing with NYC/Ireland’s Stand on 3/10 at The Saint in Asbury Park NJ. I spun both artists back-to-back.  Songs hinting and implying endings alongside beginnings colored Segment 3.  Shane Cooley & Rosa Wallace are both performing on 3/8 at The Rogue Bar in Scottsdale AZ.  2 Philly artists heard back-to-back, Carsie Blanton (listen for Rob Hyman on the organ on her song “Together Too Long”), and Ryan Tennis (who continues his Clubhouse (house) Concert series here in South Philly.    Segment 4 gave us female archetypes who’ve had it ‘up to here’ (Kellylee Evans, Shanna Underwood, Lara Ewen).
