NEXT SHOW will be published on or about December 17 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 possible thereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

This will be my FINAL show for 2012. Also, please note that RCB Novus Ordo is done for 2012. Both podcasts will return for the week of January 6.
Further this coming show carries several RCB traditions. You’ll know them when you hear them. If you want to be clued into such traditions, why not read the newest page on my site?
https://radiocrystalblue.net/rcb-traditions/
PROGRAMMING NOTE:
Each week through my January shows I’m airing tracks from The 1861 Project,
a series that touches upon the Civil War experience. We’re up to Volume 2:
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
liner notes “Every singer, player and writer on this album has a strong
connection to Ireland, by ancestry, birth, or just by heart”. More about
this fascinating series at www.1861project.com
On 12/26/12 at 2pm ET I will do a COUNTDOWN exclusively on Twitter, synchcronized to Facebook, as I will announce the top 100 artists of the year. I plan to also announce then the winner of the title of Best New Artist, top 10 albums of the year, and the updated charts for the quarter and for all time.

I want Radio Crystal Blue to continue to grow, to reach and touch minds and hearts, and to have more of a real presence. I also want a new logo for the show, and to work in a studio space to make this show a bit more tangible. Right now that’s the vision. Carrying that vision appears to be most challenging right now.
Meanwhile I have two video projects that are awaiting people to volunteer and help create. In the meanwhile I remain available to do some shooting myself, now that I have the means.

COVERAGE: 3-4 times a month I go out to Philly-area gigs to do photos, some
video, and a write-up on my website afterward. I do this for free, tho at
some point in the future I might want to barter this work or be simply paid.

NEXT shows I’m covering:
Going to two shows at Milkboy in Ardmore
12/14 (tonight): At Sea www.atseamusic.com
12/29 Ray G. Ward www.raygward.com
**************
RCB REVIEW from this week’s shows:
RCB Novus Ordo: I have carried a head cold much of this week, and I did not sound nearly my best. But the music remained top-notch. Last RCB Novus Ordo show for the year went this way: Pine And Battery is fronted by Jeff Campbell, whom we’ve heard some songs of throughout the year. Intriguing authentic Americana sound via Northern Sweden, from Buford Pope. Strong debut from the eccentric yet accessible sound of Carla Bean.

RCB proper:Just before I was prepared to record, I learned of the passing of Ravi Shankar. I mused over the whole raga-rock thing and how it fused into rock in the 60s and beyond. I began this show with The Moody Blues and the spoken word “The Word” along with “Om” which close the concept album “In Search Of The Lost Chord”. A neat transition from there to a new favorite, spinning The Orb’s collaboration with Lee “Scratch” Perry. Segment 1 has elements of timeliness, the sense of time. M’Balia’s “Nobody’s Coming” is an insanely catchy pop song. Within the first of 2 New Music Samplers we hear from alternative pop rock artist Jason Masi as well as the multi-talented Sam Kulik. Sam I met while he was performing with art rock band Starring earlier in the year. “South Philly Daze” is what he calls a ‘song-poem’, a phrase and style he borrowed from Penn & Teller. Being based in South Philly myself, this had to be spun. Segment 2: Voodoo Swing, rockabilly from Arizona, are finally releasing the new material I’ve spun for you a few months now. WitchFeet’s sound is just lovely, recalling elements of The Beatles, Guided By Voices, maybe Alex Chilton. Segment 3: The folk collective in NY’s Hudson Valley known as Tribes Hill are doing their annual Solstice Concert on 12/16. Fred Gillen Jr.’s “Morphine Angel” has a Christmas reference in it. Susan Kane appears on this song. And we hear Susan in the song following, an ode to NYC and winter which closes her brand new album, with amazing studio personnel for the ride. In New Music Sampler 2, we hear from Philadelphia-area band Lotus Hill, whom I’ve seen perform twice. Also here is the strong Nashville sounds of Leyla Fences, with the funnest album title you’ve ever heard. Closing segment: Debra Cowan’s new album was recorded at a folk club in West Yorkshire, UK. I aired a traditional song she sung a capella, and followed it with a similarly titled traditional tune by Putnam Smith. It would have been too easy to spin a Ravi Shankar tune at the end of this show, or even the classic original of “Within You, Without You” by you-know-who. Instead I went with Patti Smith’s interpretation, which appears on her 2007 covers album “Twelve”
