Coming through and out of the folk music revival of the 1950s and 60s, Dean has work with many artists of the genre, both as producer and performing artists. Dean had discovered and briefly managed the lengendary Odetta.  On this, his first album in many years, Dean explores the very roots of folk, and specifically the collection of songs from poet Carl Sandburg’s compilation “The American Songbag”
The tracks I spun, from this album, were “A Horse Named Bill”, “The Colorado Trail”, “Duncan and Brady”

PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about September 25 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.
*****
RCB remains a one-person operation and I must market the show and presence just right to ensure the reach is strong. I am hoping there are enough who listen tho there days I wonder about this. I want to reach more fans of the artists you listen to, and you fans yourselves. When the $ comes, I want to replace my logo with something different and learn how to brand more properly.

Slight programming change: I am aiming to record on Tuesdays and publish Wednesdays. Now that I have the new temp job starting next week, shows will take on this new pattern. Further, RCB Novus Ordo goes back to 8 songs from 6, as the library has increased in recent weeks.

This week is the next to last before I construct the quarterly airplay charts, measuring which artists are receiving the most airplay and exposure from the last 3 months. If you ask me whcih artists are most popular, I’ll point you to the chart. Look for an update to it first thing October. Chart page: http://www.radiocrystalblue.net/chart-page

I was in NYC briefly on Thursday to repair a camera battery, which was stuck in the camera’s body. The night before I had planned to review an event at The Legendary Dobbs. I wasn’t able to get the photos done before the battery got stuck. Granted the battery was rather worn and I was taking a chance at its being further damaged. Thankfully I still have 2 others. So, no review from Thursday, but I did get some photos done in the aftermath of the repair job while in NYC. Kudos to Photo Tech in the Union Square section of the city for being available to do an excellent job! The photos I took on Friday are of The High Line. Full gallery here

I’m currently projecting to revive the social calendar in October after I’m a few weeks into the temp job, reviewing events and such. I might even enroll in another course at PhillyCAM, the city’s public-access network. What I really want to do is get into production instead of taking another course.

A word about ‘sponsors’-‘supporters’: There are many individuals and businesses that send me music. The ones that have formally agreed to be sponsors are the ones I’ve listed at the beginning newsletter, and are also the same ones who get mentioned in between music segments. The others don’t get mentioned tho I find it’s impossible not to mention them at times. Here’s a few of those companies:

********
The annotated notes of this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: Tom Principato, one of RCB’s top airplay recipients for certain, returns with a new album of guitar-oriented blues. The Tressels, a Philly hard rock band I’ve seen a few times, also returns with the second of a three-album trilogy. I was intrigued by the Sidleys, telling real-life love stories in their songs.

RCB proper: Why not start with a song from the Twin Peaks soundtrack? A definitive autumnal statement kicks this show off. Segment 1: Loretta Hagen & Beaucoup Blue appear at the Hillside Cafe in Nutley NJ, 9/21. Lara Ewen returns with a long-awaited new album, telling semi-autobiographical songs about her most recent life experiences. The CD is encased in a short hardcover book. Why don’t more people release music this way? I really like the roots-rock of David Newbould; you hear a 7-minute roots-rock song from his new album. Segment 2 is augmented by Melissa Greener. She shares billing with the following artists: with Nels Andrews at Osteria, San Francisco on 9/23; then with Freebo and John Batdorf at the Cinema Bar, Culvery City, on 10/6. The Steel Wheels also sharing billing this very weekend in Winfield KS for the Walnut Valley Festival. Si Kahn & The Looping Brothers are part of the festivities. Si’s new album contains a fast-moving bluegrass song that you heard me spin. Gina Holsopple is also part of the festival, and we hear a song from her new (and 8th!) album. Segment 3 ran from songwriter fare to country/roots to modern rock/pop. Belles & Whistles’ “Right Side Of Dirt” is an enduring favorite here. Segment 4 features artists who are part of next weekend’s Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, in Bristol VA/NC, the ‘birthplace’ of country music. A number of seafaring songs are included in the mix, and two referencing Tennessee (James McMurtry, Miss Tess). Besides the festival, Red Molly are sharing stages with Brother Sun on October 5 in Chatham NJ. The Boxcar Lilies & Beggar’s Ride both appear October 4 at the 1st Presbyterian Church, New Haven CT, then October 5 at the Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham MA. Segment 5 was generally folk and folk-rock. Best segue from here contains the theme of tackling life’s big questions (Mark Erelli, Carrie Elkin, Aztec Two Step).

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.

**

Folks, I’m still here, in Philadelphia, and hope to be for as long as I can breathe. There is a big issue on the homefront and the fact is too plain to mince words on.
The $ that I have lived on since my move here 2.5 years ago is just about gone.
I cannot get the bills paid, and am holding out hope only on two jobs I recently interviewed for. I have a good feeling about both them, that’s all I will say. It’s not really a case of checking up on both jobs to see if I made it. It’s more like waiting for the phone to ring. Outside of that, I’m just not sure what I’ll do. I have no plans to leave and I don’t know where else I can go.
What I do know is this: I’m seeking work in Philadelphia and the metro area, in 1 of several industries, at a certainn $ range, and something commutable via bus/train. This is not an impossible task, but it sure feels like it sometimes.
To that end, for purposes of my program, I can’t make any real plans beyond the next few weeks in terms of programming. Coming into more income, via a job or other means will definitely make the biggest difference.
***
 
5 YEARS AGO this week I debuted Mary Edwards on RCB Novus Ordo. Within the rotation were songs by these artists: Lin McEwan; Luke Sneyd; Katie Pearlman, Rebecca Pronsky; Tim Blane, The Clarks; Afterdawn; Telling On Trixie; Amy Clarke; Richard Shindell. These are names that have hardly graced the show since but have certainly left their impact.
Onward:

********
RCB Novus Ordo: The Boxcar Lilies have returned with a new album that starts this program. Goodnight Moonshine is a new duo-led project from Molly Venter (Red Molly) and Eben Pariser (Roosevelt Dime). Veteran songwriter and activist Si Kahn presents a concept album singing and speaking out against the encroachment of mining to be done in Alaska’s Bristol Bay. Some of the songs could serve as official state songs. Andrew Calhoun, he of the Waterbug indie label, returns with a new album here also.

RCB proper: The 8th Huntington (NY) Folk Festival took focus this week as I presented 2 sets of music (Segments 1 and 4) from artists who are part of this upcoming experience. Segment 2 started with 2 songs mentioning California. The sisters von Grey, plus Mike Vial and Lukas Nelson (& Promise Of The Real) took part in the Common Grounds Music Festival in Lansing MI this week. Got a tweet from Mike once I published the show: “..Quick connection, Blue Rodeo’s live sound engineer Duke Foster did some engineering for my 2nd EP!” Segment 3: I like Jason Myles Goss’s tune about a boxer fighting on July 3, following up with local band Song Dogs, and two songs about Asian communities of sorts (Changing Modes, Love X Stereo). Segment 5 partially contains music from artists taking part in the first Mountain Folk & Roots Festival in Gettysburg, PA, 7/26-28.Songs in this segment seemed to be bluesy and somewhat depressive. Included is another track from the new album by Krista Baroni. Final segment: 3 songs referencing Europe (Eliane Amherd, Jean Mann, Patti DeRosa), and a few songs right from the heart to close out. I love Amanda Pearcy’s thoughtful and throaty expression on “The Story Of My Heart”
