Radio Crystal Blue archived show from April 2006 available.

In the first such attempt to recreate a perpetual archive of older Radio Crystal Blue (pre-2012), I made the effort to find any shows I may have saved to disc. I did locate and edit and clean up audio of one show from a series of shows first broadcast on the Live365 Internet radio network.
The show you’re hearing is the 2nd show I ever used with my current podcast partner, Big Contact. The breakthrough at the time was the viral manner of accessing the show. You didn’t have to endure hearing the show on a separate network page; here you could listen with various devices and embed the player elsewhere.

I was also running my annual Airplay Vote, which still awarded not much more than more airplay for top vote-getters. One year, there were actual prizes courtesy of several supporters. I’ve not resurrected the vote since but I may revisit this in the future.
I had stylized a level of artists guaranteed to receive airplay, which I called “Gems”. I’ve since rescinded the elite level.

By late 2005, I was already feeling more and more influenced by the plight of indie artists and less about the major labels. This show in particular is thoroughly indie.

Some great artists are heard here (Shawn Mullins, Lesley Gore). Some were heard of more than once. Some have remained on my radar: (Patti DeRosa, Meredith Blis). Some, I wonder whatever happened to (Washington Social Club, Mike Brick).

Relive this memory anytime you wish. Here are the ways to listen:
