As a supporter of Sonicbids artists since 2004, Radio Crystal Blue is actively seeking artists with new albums (nothing older than 9 months) to air on their original show, and to debut on producer/host Dan Hermans companion radio program, Radio Crystal Blue's Novus Ordo.
Radio Crystal Blue spins music of leading indie/underground artists of several genres currently performing and recording worldwide. The show is centered around the Philadelphia area, but does spin music from songwriters and bands around the United States, as well as Canada and across Europe. Radio Crystal Blue provides commentary about where an artist is performing and when, plus anecdotal details of other artists.
Novus Ordo focuses on 10 new albums a week and is distributed in the same manner as with Radio Crystal Blue. All artist albums that are actively promoting and performing gigs will make it to the standard RCB rotation.
Depending on the time of the year, Radio Crystal Blues has dedicated airplay features, plus an annual airplay vote which determines some of the featured programming. Holiday-themed shows also air a few times per year. The show has a strong following both live and in archival form. The archives of my shows are updated weekly and can be found elsewhere on the website at www.radiocrystalblue.net The page contains the last 4 shows, plus a FeedPlayer with mp3, streaming and podcast options. New shows are recorded on Sundays and distributed on Mondays or Tuesdays, currently averaging 4 hours in length.
For more information on the host and the show visit RadioCrystalBlue.net. This includes airplay charts, several Q&A interviews with indie stars past and present, and more.
Note: There is no dedicated studio space for performances or interviews. Sometime in the future there may be such amenities.
Dan sometimes records particular artists at events and interviews with a digital recorder.
