PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about May 8 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.

Some exposure for the show during the month of April came this month from these websites:

Thanks everyone!

CD FOCUS returns with a very special collection of music. Courtesy of Unfinished Side Productions, I have received a disc that contains some of the last recorded music from Ravi Shankar, under the title “The Living Room Sessions, Part 2”. I will air one of the 3 long ragas for the next show, and likewise for the 2 following shows. More info at www.eastmeetswestmusic.com www.ravishankar.org

Outside of radio, even outside of job-hunting, where I’m averaging about one interview a week, I’m still very involved in horse racing, and this is one of those very busy weekends where handicapping is at the forefront. I’ve already made selections for those big races happening at Churchill Downs. You can hear me talk about them on my sport-based podcast, titled “Idealistic Sport” at www.bigcontact.com/idealisticsport with the same options as with Radio Crystal Blue to stream, share and download all material. The blog is always the final word, at www.idealisticstats.wordpress.com

RCB rewind:
RCB Novus Ordo: Great way to start this show is with the superb songwriting and musicianship of Susan James, introducing a ‘California Hybrid’ sound, something perhaps not fully explored since the days of Linda Ronstadt and sound-alikes. Vinyl Soup explores rock via electronics and universal peaceful messages. NC’s Jon Shain returns with his 8th solo album. Lizanne Knott, whom I recall being part of Dan May’s most recent album on backing vocals, resurfaces for her latest solo effort. Hudson Valley’s own Steve Chizmadia, whom I last saw some 10 years ago in NYC also has a new album which is heard on this program.
RCB proper: First segment includes music from artists perCraftforming on this weekend’s Crafts at Lyndhurst event in Tarrytown, NY, presented by the folk community of Tribes Hill. Within the segment we hear brand new music from Susan Kane, and the LeVins, whose album is mainly inspired by 13th-century poet Hafiz. Segment 2: Having met the sainted Ellis Paul last month in Cape May, and receiving his 2010 CD “The Day After Everything Changed”, I aired “Dragonfly” which I believe he performed during his keynote speech. Ellis, with Rebecca Loebe, perform at Club Passim in Cambridge MA on 5/16. Adrienne Pierce is also reintroduced with a new album. Segment 3: Spun another new one from Sirsy. I say again, they have never sounded better! Spun an older tune from Philly’s own Prima Donna, who reunited with original lead singer Kelly Werkheiser late last year. She is on vocals on the song “No Compromise” which I aired. Segment 4: Antje Duvekot, after many moons, returns to the RCB airwaves, with a new album titled “New Siberia”. She and David Wilcox, heard before her in this segment, will be performing at The Towne Crier in Pawling NY on May 5. More thoughtful love songs in this segment from Buskin & Batteau and Elaine Amherd continue the theme. Segment 5 was devoted to artists who are part of the RiverRoots Music & Folk Arts Festival in Madison IN May 17th and 18th. Danny Schmidt and Carrie Elkin, newly engaged are heard in this segment. Final segment are mostly quiet, reflective songs here. Beth DeSombre performs in Dan & Faith Senie’s new songwriter series at the Harvest Cafe, Hudson MA, 5/8. Instrumentals by John Roy Zat and Heather Pierson close out this long edition of RCB.
