I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played some new songs, I played some old songs, and I talked about of couple of “literary” characters in local music songs.
Song before: Fractured Mirror – Ace Frehley
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a cold night in Burlington but people are out and about, walking around, not letting it stop them. I was trying to make it to three shows this week and feel bad I only made it to one. Great Western played a great show lat Friday at Radio Bean, and did a killer version of this one. This is Into the light by Great Western on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.
I made it to Western last Friday and after a long work day Saturday was dragging when it got close to the Phil show at The Monkey House. As it turned out the party ended up coming to me that night. I was going to go see Phil Yates solo at Radio Bean on Sunday but the afternoon nap was 4 hours and I woke up right as he was going on. I should have set the alarm. Rats. Great song from the upcoming Phil album. I just got the Plains album today and that one jumped at me. Sweet song from Death from the Burlington days. OK, on to the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes. This is a beautiful song that I’m sending out to my brother. It features Johnnie Day Durand on the saw.
I thought Swale were going to play Radio Bean tomorrow night but the schedule changed and now it’s Barbacoa and Binger. Hmm. I think Aaron is playing at Juniper tomorrow. I may have to check that out. Joe is playing Saturday night at the Bean, so that will be fun. This next band is from Canada but have played Burlington and Vermont so many times, they are practically locals. They are playing the Flynn Theater on Tuesday. I’ve seen them many times but may miss this one. I had no money when tickets went on sale, and as soon as I could afford it, they were sold out. Oh well, maybe next time. On this tour they are playing a few songs, then all of Fully Completely.
8.) Fully Completely – The Tragically Hip
9.) New Orleans Is Sinking (live w/Nautical Disaster in the middle) – The Tragically Hip
That’s going to be a rocking night at the Flynn. The Flynn will also rock in February when Death and Rough Francis play. I’ve got tickets for that, for me and my brother Ken. Here’s another song from Spiritual Mental Physical.
Farm put on some great shows and I always loved that one. I though it would sound great coming out of Comm and was so right. OK, let’s slow things down a little. This next artist has an album coming in February. Until then I will have to just play this one.
I love that song and really love the sentiment of it! I may not make it, but I’ll always try. I don’t know a lot about Abbie but she has a Wednesday night residence at Nectar’s this January. I’m sure Ill catch her the night Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger play. Love Hana, can’t wait for the new songs!. This next artist just started a Kickstarter to fund his new album. The last one was great, and here is a song from it.
17.) 1965 – The New Siberians
18.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
19.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
20.) Hammerhead – Barbacoa
Barbacoa always rock. I’ll see how the energy goes tomorrow. I’d love to catch them at the Bean. I was going to play a song by Redadmirial but it was in a format the players did not recognize, so maybe next week. It was recorded live at a pub called The Old Northender so I had to play the James song. Love the BB song too. OK, time for two more songs. These are two “literary” characters of song from Burlington.
21.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows
22.) Errol McSquisitor (live) – Elephants of Scotland
Wow, that was just tremendous live. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: Jack And Jill – Fish
