PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about March 6 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 (ten) songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of
each.
*****************************
CAPE MAY: The 6th Annual Cape May Singer-Songwriter Festival takes place at Congress Hall in historic Cape May, NJ on 3/22 and 3/23. At night, over a dozen local establishments will host showcases of local and regional songwriter talent. Yours truly has aligned with Tunes2ya to MC the 3/23 showcase at Aleathea’s Restaurant, inside The Inn at Cape May. It’s been a while since I’ve hosted an event, and I’m excited for the opportunity. My schedule around the weekend is still open. It appears I’ll be networking during both days. I might need a roommate to share an inn with for either day. More about this event at www.sscapemay.com

Your donations to keep Radio Crystal Blue active have helped somewhat. I can, at least, get my bills paid, and I did get some help from the family, tho it’s unclear for how much longer and for just how much in the future. I am expecting this to be a very temporary solution. Meanwhile, as you cam imagine, there are necessary costs, including for the mics, batteries, phone, Internet connection, and the space to house thousands of CDs.

LIVE EVENT COVERAGE: I’m giving myself the chance to stay local while the $ is still avaliable and review some live events for you, including appropo media. Here’s what’s ahead:
3/1The Miners at Field House www.minersmusic.com www.fieldhousephilly.com
3/2 Dizzy Bats at JR’s Bar www.dizzybatsmusic.com
3/8 Changing Modes at The Legendary Dobbs www.changingmodes.com

I’m rediscovering CHIRBIT as a method of delivering concise insightful messages without simply typing out text or including images, and also keeping the message personable. Chirbit, in essence, is an audio-tweet website. You can record messages through their website or upload from your computer. Also compatible with video and text! www.chirbit.com I aim to use this service whenever there is newsworthy info to pass on, or something specific to Radio Crystal Blue. Matter of fact, you can hear the audio version of this news right here: http://chirb.it/KBOpcA

RCB rewind:
RCB Novus Ordo: Local alt-country band The Miners, release their new album with an event here in Philly. I spun a track from that new EP on this show. Emanuel And The Fear trim half of their personnel and continue to make a most unique sound in rock. Olgwi presents folk-rock from Sweden.
RCB proper: 2 months I declared my rediscovery and love of the presence and music of Italian-pop singer Adriano Celentano. The song I spun, according to English translation, is one of hope in the face of fear (title translates to ‘the flashing light”. Hope is something I really can use in my own life right about now. Tweeting on the subject earlier this week, I mused whether this was a Van Morrison sort of theme. So I found an older song of his that seemed to fit. Also some Leonard Cohen to add some melancholy. Through the segments, relatively short this week, some recently released music include such from Digital Antique, WitchFeet, Eliane Amherd, Ben Bedford, plus a gorgeous ballad from the new Buskin & batteau album. The YaYas and Heather Pierson are part of the Listening Room Festival in FL this week into next.
