PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about June 12 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.

5 YEARS AGO: back into the Wayback I had aired music from these notable artists 5 years ago this week: Dan Bern, The Feverfew, Imaginary Johnny, Telling On Trixie, The States, Philpot, 3 Kisses, Luke Sneyd, Too Loons For Tea, and Martha Redbone. Devoted features were aired for Devon Sproule and Holly O’Reilly. In that week’s RCB Novus Ordo, debut airplay was granted to artists such as The Revelons, The Dollyrots, I Am The Heat, and Lucibel Crater. Do any of these artists resonate with you? They do, for me.
***
Stats for the month of May fell this way: A very slight downtick in terms of eyeballs to the website but typically there’s been a slowdown in the warmer months. The posts relevant to the podcasts have remained most popular, alongside the home and archive pages. No reviews were done in the last month. Not sure I’ll do any in June just yet. Outside of the US: Canada, Sweden, the UK and Italy have viewed my site the most.

RCB Novus Ordo: The Trailerpark Idlers from Stockholm present a unique alt-country sound. We hear from The Stereofidelics, who have released their latest CD. Best promo item of the year I’ve received (and I get my fair share) are the 3-D glasses. They are provided so that you can read the lyrics within the liner notes. Lengendary bluesman Hans Theessink is heard once again, along with Lisa Biales who presents another assortment of old and new blues. I also spun a fan favorite that appears on Jill Cagney’s newest EP.
RCB proper: Initial segment includes some of my favorite summer tunes. Dick Dale remains a staple for me. Listen to that guitar plank! Related bands The Pixies and The Breeders also give some summer/surf guitar sounds here, plus a classic from Midnight Oil. Rob Morsberger passed away this week. I had met him briefly during the time he was gigging with Jon Herington. I dug up Jon’s 2000 album “Like So” which I spun for you back in 2002. This was in the year before Jon had joined Steely Dan’s band on guitar. Rob is heard on piano on the title track. Segment 2: West Coast songwriter superstars Pi Jacobs & Garrison Starr share billing at The Sculpterra Winery, Paso Robles CA on 6/9. I went with two songs that contained a very similar downbeat (Meghan Cary, Daphne Lee Martin). Segment 3: Veteran songwriter Larry Wayne Clark also passed away this week. He co-wrote a song with Shane Guse, he of The Western Swing Authority, and I did spin “I’ve Got A Feeling”. Brand new music in this segment by Amateur Blonde. Segment 4: More brand new music here by Austin’s own Randy Stern, and also more from Ronnie Fauss’s new album. Gallon House has ended their work as a duo, and are becoming two solo acts. Their final show is on June 7 at Seven Brides Brewing, Silverton, OR. Final segment: Greg Klyma is included with what I believe is a Polish traditional song (“Dziadek I Babcia” would appear to translate into English as ‘granddad and granddad’. Is this so?). Also aired another tune from Stephen Lee Rich’s latest.
