Soundbites

By Dan Bolles [02.20.13]

Last week’s feature story about local music superfan Tim Lewis generated a surprising amount of reader feedback in the ol’ inbox. The majority were positive, running the gamut from, “Oh, I always wondered who that dude was!” to, “It’s about time somebody paid attention to that guy.” Most didn’t refer to Lewis by name, oddly enough.

But because the internet is the internet, I also received some, shall we say, less charitable reactions to the story, from, “Slow news week, huh?” to, “You suck, Dan Bolles!”

I can’t figure you people out. I can write a scathing review of some lousy local band and not hear so much as a peep. But then I’ll write a relatively fluffy human-interest piece and the jackals come out of the woodwork. Maybe it’s the grips of Seasonal Affective Disorder finally taking hold?

Anyway, I bring it up to let you know that you nasty types can go fornicate yourselves.

Kidding! Mostly. (It’s just the SAD talking, I swear.)

Actually, I bring it up to let you know that Lewis has signed on with the folks at local online radio station WBKM — tagline: “Burlington’s kinda music.” He’ll be debuting his new show, “The Sounds of Burlington,” this Thursday, February 21, at 9 p.m., on wbkm.org.

If you read the aforementioned piece, you know there are few, if any, fans of local music as knowledgeable or as passionate as Lewis. I expect his show will reflect those aspects of his impressive fandom and will be a worthy listen for anyone else who feels similarly about homegrown tunes.

Rock on, Tim.
