PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about July 17 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 8 songs, one each from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of each.

 

CD FOCUS: I continue to seek very good concept/compilations for future shows, with albums I can feature track-for-track. Do you know of one? Send it along!

**

Folks, I’m still here, in Philadelphia, and hope to be for as long as I can breathe. There is a big issue on the homefront and the fact is too plain to mince words on.
The $ that I have lived on since my move here 2.5 years ago is just about gone.
I cannot get the bills paid, and am holding out hope only on two jobs I recently interviewed for. I have a good feeling about both them, that’s all I will say. It’s not really a case of checking up on both jobs to see if I made it. It’s more like waiting for the phone to ring. Outside of that, I’m just not sure what I’ll do. I have no plans to leave and I don’t know where else I can go.
What I do know is this: I’m seeking work in Philadelphia and the metro area, in 1 of several industries, at a certainn $ range, and something commutable via bus/train. This is not an impossible task, but it sure feels like it sometimes.
To that end, for purposes of my program, I can’t make any real plans beyond the next few weeks in terms of programming. Coming into more income, via a job or other means will definitely make the biggest difference.

5 YEARS AGO this week I debuted Mary Edwards on RCB Novus Ordo. Within the rotation were songs by these artists: Lin McEwan; Luke Sneyd; Katie Pearlman, Rebecca Pronsky; Tim Blane, The Clarks; Afterdawn; Telling On Trixie; Amy Clarke; Richard Shindell. These are names that have hardly graced the show since but have certainly left their impact.
Onward:

********
RCB Novus Ordo: The Boxcar Lilies have returned with a new album that starts this program. Goodnight Moonshine is a new duo-led project from Molly Venter (Red Molly) and Eben Pariser (Roosevelt Dime). Veteran songwriter and activist Si Kahn presents a concept album singing and speaking out against the encroachment of mining to be done in Alaska’s Bristol Bay. Some of the songs could serve as official state songs. Andrew Calhoun, he of the Waterbug indie label, returns with a new album here also.

RCB proper: The 8th Huntington (NY) Folk Festival took focus this week as I presented 2 sets of music (Segments 1 and 4) from artists who are part of this upcoming experience. Segment 2 started with 2 songs mentioning California. The sisters von Grey, plus Mike Vial and Lukas Nelson (& Promise Of The Real) took part in the Common Grounds Music Festival in Lansing MI this week. Got a tweet from Mike once I published the show: “..Quick connection, Blue Rodeo’s live sound engineer Duke Foster did some engineering for my 2nd EP!” Segment 3: I like Jason Myles Goss’s tune about a boxer fighting on July 3, following up with local band Song Dogs, and two songs about Asian communities of sorts (Changing Modes, Love X Stereo). Segment 5 partially contains music from artists taking part in the first Mountain Folk & Roots Festival in Gettysburg, PA, 7/26-28.Songs in this segment seemed to be bluesy and somewhat depressive. Included is another track from the new album by Krista Baroni. Final segment: 3 songs referencing Europe (Eliane Amherd, Jean Mann, Patti DeRosa), and a few songs right from the heart to close out. I love Amanda Pearcy’s thoughtful and throaty expression on “The Story Of My Heart”
