I just got back from my local music, internet only, radio show on Wbkm Dot Org. The show had a bit of a theme.

intro

From our small city, to the great big wold, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s getting colder, but there were still people walking around Church st. They were playing music on the street and in the bars. Last week I opened with a song about California by Joshua Glass. Tonight let’s start with New York, My Lovely on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) New York, My Lovely – Josh Glass
2.) Lonely Man – Ana Pardenik
3.) Die A Little – Satori Bob

John Baumann and Satori Bob used to play Burlington all the time. He moved out west but this song has the great Robert Gagnon on it. Bob is such a great player and has a wonderful Vermonter dry wit. Best Facebook poster ever? I love Anna’s songs and that one seemed to fit the mood of the day. Next up is another of those staggeringly great players in Burlington.

4.) The Ground Is Giving UP – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days
5.) Monarch Butterfly – Jenny Montana
6.) My Atom Girl – The Dirtminers

That’s a great song by the Dirtminers about the father of the Pakistani atomic bomb. Here in Burlington we like to look at, and listen to, the events of the world and try and make sense of them. Raph Worrick and Jeff LaBossiere and company do a great job of it on that song. It’s really catchy too. Jenny used to play a bunch of the Women Exposed in Fold Fashion and Rock And Roll shows, that Gabrielle Douglas used to always be a part of. I love that song from Jenny. Next up is the next song from the great album, To A Star In The Yard.

7.) Keeping You Wild – Alice Austin
8.) On The Radio (?) – My Other Friend
9.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner
10.) The Blackout – The Static Age

Static were an ’80’s band in the 2000’s that gave us the mega talented Bobby Hackney Jr. on drums who went on to front ROUGH FRANCIS and Marie Claire Johnson who rocked hard with Fire the Cannons, wrote some great solo piano songs that I really miss and would love to play, and met up with Mike Gordon for a tour. She often plays at Honky Tonk Tuesdays at Radio Bean. I had a great time at the Bean last week seeing Blue Button and Rough Francis on Saturday and Hana Zara on Sunday. This Saturday Thompson are playing. My Other Friend came to town once and I bought their three song CD that has no song titles. Great stuff though.

Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK. A lot of people have a lot of opinions, but the fact is it was a tragedy that stunned the nation and effects us deeply 50 years later. People in Burlington like to think things through and try to organize thoughts to make sense of worldly events. Black Rabbit do a great job of it on this song about that horrible event in our history.

11.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit
12.) Ruffians – Rough Francis
13.) Destroying Everything They See – Blue Button
14.) I’m Sick Of It – Shark Victim

SV are always fun. BB and RF rocked the Bean hard on Saturday. Thanks guys!! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
