On the air since October 2000, Radio Crystal Blue is a freeform radio podcast, spotlighting top indie/underground/DIY artists. 

As a supporter of Sonicbids artists since 2004, Radio Crystal Blue is actively seeking artists with new albums (nothing older than 9 months) to debut on producer/host Dan Hermans companion radio program, Radio Crystal Blue Novus Ordo. 

Radio Crystal Blue spins music of leading indie/underground artists of several genres currently performing and recording worldwide. The show is housed in Philadelphia. Radio Crystal Blue provides commentary about where an artist is performing and when, plus anecdotal details of other artists. 

RCB Novus Ordo focuses on individual songs from 8 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. Artists considered for submission must be actively performing/touring.

The archives of my shows are updated weekly and can be found elsewhere on the website at The page contains the last 4 shows, plus a FeedPlayer with mp3, streaming and podcast options. New shows are recorded on Tuesdays and distributed on Wednesdays, currently averaging 4 hours in length.

Note: There is no dedicated studio space for performances or interviews. Sometime in the future there may be such amenities.
