HOW TO LISTEN:
Each show is usually published by Wednesday or Thursday weekly. There are
now two main hubs where to hear Radio Crystal Blue
(1) via Big Contact, my podcast provider: There is a Feed Player at
www.radiocrystalblue.net Just click the link to open it, and select from the
tabs to download and stream the audio from the particular show. You can also
embed the player on your site or blog.
The FeedPlayer is generated with Flash. If you don’t have Flash, you can get
this at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
These players are also available at www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalblu which
renders the player as a Web page.
Shows on the FeedPlayers are kept for a year.

(2) via Internet Archive: Each podcast includes a dedicated podcast page on
www.archive.org with similar download, stream and embed links. Just look for
Radio Crystal Blue and the date of the week I published the show (I use the
Sunday date) The shows kept here will remain in perpetuity.

RADIO CRYSTAL BLUE ARCHIVE PROJECT also on www.archive.org Use the search
term Radio Crystal Blue to find older shows from 2004 and 2006, shows that
don’t quite sound like the ones I presently do!

PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about January 16 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 the backstory of each artist

I’m putting my digital hat in the ring once again, as I enter the 2014 Shorty Awards, which is a popular online vote honoring ‘the best of social media’ in 200 categories. I am in the Podcaster category. Essentially, for me to win the coveted trophy, I have to secure the most votes. Simple, right? We can do this! Just share and tweet out my profile on their site:

http://shortyawards.com/radiocblue When you fill in the reason for nominating me, be sure to select Podcaster in the drop-down area. See where I rank here: http://shortyawards.com/category/6th/podcaster
 
Only real drama this week was on the homefront as I lost some personal items and the pipes freezing here. It was a week where I had to go without a number of items that we take for granted. Further it actually delayed my podcasting for this past week, and I apologize that you’ve had to wait until Friday to hear the first show of the year.
I still have a lot to process, still waiting on $, still pursuing alternative means of income, and continuing to attract interesting people along the way. I remain a sort of hermit as I haven’t pursued thoroughly social activity since my financial situation became worse, which was also the state of things for the majority of 2013.
RCB REWIND:
RCB Novus Ordo was intended to be 8 artists in length, but the discovery of some older albums in the mix reduced it to 6.
As for RCB proper: My opening segment has changed over the years. You’ll recall I used to spin specific songs honoring the new year, and the end of the century, plus an underlying war theme that ran from novelty (“Snoopy vs. The Red Baron”) through anthemic (“New Year’s Day” by U2). This year I stuck to what I did last year, being decidedly wintry, both re lyrics and sound. Brenda Kahn’s tune “Yellow Sun” evokes the immediate aftermath of a NYE party. The song is from my collection of CMJ CD’s from the 1990’s. “Say Hello” from the new album by Sarah Rabdau & Self-Employed Assassinis, starts the first proper indie segment of the year. I was one of several folks who volunteered voices for the ‘hello’ you hear echoed in the song. Listen for new music by Shakeh and Spuyten Duyvil in this segment. Amy Speace’s tune “In Salida” is twinned with a passage from Shakespeare’s Richard III in the liner notes of Amy’s latest album . Segment 2 includes blues numbers from Too Slim & The Taildraggers, and Tweed Funk and another new one from Jack + Jill. Segment 3 focused on artists performing at the 5th annual 30A Songwriter Festival, being held in Walton, FL, January 17 through 19. This was the first chance I had to air music from John Gorka, who is soon to release a new album. Final segment includes more new music from Lowland Hum.

*******
PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about February 3 and will be available for
about 1 year. Remember, even if you miss hearing a show the week I record,
you can always find it within the FeedPlayer’s archive of older shows. Owing
to schedule demands, I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon as
possiblethereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 10 (ten) songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of
each.

LIVE EVENT COVERAGE: I’m planning to cover 1 or 2 events a month in Philly.I
do writeups of shows on my website, and share most photos on Facebook, plus
video on YouTube.
*****************************
INTERVIEW: I interviewed electronic-rock artist Alex Kelly on Skype this week. This 25-minute interview covered the gamut about her recent tours, her approach to music, the making of her exquisite video “Catalyst” and more Hear the interview in my Field Recording FeedPlayer at www.bigcontact.com/radiocrystalbluefield which has share/stream/download options. It’s also linked at the home and archive pages of my website.

Celebrated birthday #43 (yes I count them all) pretty quietly. 400 of you sent me nice messages on Facebook and just a few on Twitter did likewise. Thanks so much. I don’t exactly know what my year ahead will be like. I recall making goals at this time of the year and seeing many of the smaller ones come to pass. This year ahead, I want to build some income streams, and somehow find a way to get all the bills and debts paid. This may prove to be my most challenging year.
Also continuing to have slight stomach issues, enough to keep me from committing to some things. A few folks have extolled the virtues of aloe vera juice….What is also helping is regularly meeting and meditating with a marvelous New Age-ish group in Fishtown every month for 2 years.I’ve signed a 1-year lease to stay in my place in Philly. I honestly don’t know if I’ll make it through the 1 year but my intuition feels this is where I am to be. I do not have an exit strategy in the event something happens.

Assuming my health and finances are in great shape by mid-March, I might go to a certain conference/festival that March. As my friend Elaine Silver says, “Nothing is certain until the check is cashed”…so nothing to be said until I’m absolutely sure.
SHORTY AWARDS:The Shorty Awards honor the best of short-form content across
many expressions. This is the 5th annual awards. See who else have won in
years past here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shorty_Awards You can vote for
me to win the acclaimed Shorty Award in the area of podcasting. Just surf
to www.shortyawards.com/radiocblue then tick the dropdown area to select the
category ‘podcaster’ (‘music’ is the default; this should be changed!).RCB REVIEW (the annotated version):
RCB Novus Ordo: About is a band with 4 EPs being released over the course of 1 year, each one representing the 4 Noble Truths of Buddhism. Flowerland’s EP is a re-release from the early 90s. Peaches & Crime presents neo-vaudeville-like sounds. Steven Graves returns with a new inspirational album.
RCB proper: Garrison Starr kicks off Segment 1. Don Gallardo has Neilson Hubbard in tow on “One Of These Days” on his new album. Neilson has worked with Garrison on multiple albums. A bit countrified this first segment was. Among the 2 new music samplers: Say hello to Ethan Farmer, a virtuoso on bass, who recently has toured with Lionel Richie on his Tuskegee Tour. Tip of the iceberg, folks. Motion Pictures with a fun pop rock song. Renowned sister act Moore & Moore give us some classic country. Brian Rogers Band with a catchy rock song here also. Segment 2: Aqua Cherry with the interesting rhythms on their song “Ripoff”. Wormburner’s “Peekskill” is another great road song, set during winter. I concluded a seven week long focus on the music of The 1861 Project. Segment 3: Rebecca Loebe & Raina Rose have played a monthly residency at the venerable Threadgill’s in Austin. Songs for the sad and downtrodden in this segment, notably from Evangenitals. Final segment includes an ode to Janis Joplin and a couple of political songs. Now that you’ve read about it, give it a listen!

The 1/27 podcast is the final one that I’ll be airing tracks from The 1861 Project,

From The Famine To The Front. This collection of original music recalls
those families with Scottish and Irish ties who fought in the war. From the

RCB REVIEW (the annotated version):
RCB Novus Ordo: Robert Bobby’s re-released “Today!” album starts us off. Sidewalk Dave is a character and a half, with a concept album about romance reflected in the mating dance of bees. I know. Imani Coppola returns with a spacey dark tune. Patrick Brooks tells a ghost story in a song from his latest.

RCB proper: Hearing of the passing of bassist Michael Dunn, I opened with music from the time he was in Professor Louie & The Crowmatix’s band. Segment 1 starts personal and stays there, all about the first person. the matthew show is heard from once again, with a new album in tow, recorded at Sun Studios. Brand new music spun in a troika, all contemporary sounds with strings and beats (Victoria Love, LiLi Roquelin, Shara Strand). Segment 2: Brother Joscephus & The Love Revival Revolution Orchestra sharing bill with The Steel Wheels are part of this weekend’s Ann Arbor Folk Festival. Another new song from Bern & The Brights comes off as, well, bright. More brand new music, and another troika, from Dubious Ranger (whom I thought had broken up some time ago), V-Device from Italy, and Franklin’s Key (not from Philly, but Los Angeles). Segment 3: Got jazzy on you with The Brehms, then 2 songs in French. First was something of a wedding song by Marci Geller, and then a song of longing by David Garlitz, yet another new voice on this program. Carolann Solebello shared billing with The Kennedys on Saturday 1/26 in Titusville NJ, then with The YaYas on February 9 in Westport CT. Segment 4: Vance Gilbert & Patti DeRosa were at Me & Thee Coffeehouse in Marblehead MA on 1/25. Vance includes a Hall & Oates cover at the end of his album “Old White Men” with a brief reprise of the opening song “Boy On A Train” which I then spun in full.

RCB REVIEW (the annotated version):
RCB Novus Ordo: Tom Brislin (Spiraling) is now situated further south and unveils a solo album, performing nearly all instruments. I spun an instrumental from that album.
RCB proper: Elison Jackson’s song “Man About Lowell” would seem to be about a hero, Jack Kerouac. Daphne Lee Martin on backing vox. Elison Jackson’s album is on Daphne Lee’s label Telegraph Recording Company. Veteran bandleader Chris Daniels (The Kings) released a solo album. Included is a section of songs recorded live at Telluride in 1985. The song I spun “Cabin Fever” from the live set was rerecorded in studio for this album as well.
RCB proper: Segment 1: Darius Lux and Sloan Wainwright perform at part of the Posi Music Festival in Orlando FL this weekend. Rather positive (posi, positive, get it?) and daring songs in this first segment, including one recent song from Tall Tall Trees. Segment 2: Eilen Jewell and Miss Tess share billing tonight (1/18) at Narrows Center For the Arts in Fall River MA. I had known of Miss Tess from her days fronting her prior band, the Bon Ton Parade. Her new band, The Talkbacks, swing and rock out a bit more, resembling Eilen’s own sound. DK & The Joy Machine is solo artist Dian Killian and her mountain dulcimer. Spun a special segment of music of artists peforming at the 13th annual Light Of Day Festival, happening all week in South Jersey. (and what’s funny is, I only now get the new Arlon Bennett CD in the mail!) Segment 3: New music from Jamie Kent and Big Rock Club are highlights. Churchill & Justin Levinson are at Higher Ground in Burlington VT on 1/19 (how high up is it?). Segment 4: Spuyten Duyvil & Putnam Smith perform at someplace called Rockwood Music Hall on 1/20. I followed this up with an Amy Speace cover by Red Molly, and a few other songs relevant to the subject of time. Final segment: Honor Finnegan opens for Brother Sun on 1/19 at Circle Of Friends Coffeehouse, Franklin MA. A few more new tunes from Katie Ainge and Heather Pierson round this edition out.
 
HODGEPODGE OPEN-MIC: The mic, she is open. It is at HodgePodge, a variety/retail music establishment at 1212 South Street here in Philadelphia. I’ve been deputized to guest-host their Friday open mic on January 12 (tonight!). 5 minute performance time. Open to comedians, musicians, poets. It’s the only Friday open mic around! Signup at 730pm, event runs 8pm-10pm. More at http://circamotifs.wordpress.com/about/
Psst: There IS no microphone. Really! Sound travels very well in this establishment.
