I just got back from my 99th local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I got to play some cool new songs.
Song before: On The Air – Peter Gabriel
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cold and snowy night in Burlington and really fine flakes of snow are being blown around like crazy. Sometimes I think about the air that is all around us but is invisible. We can’t see it or feel it, unless it’s really warm or cold, but it’s the fuel that we burn to live. Thinking of air reminds me of the spiritual nature we have between our selves and our bodies. Sometimes we can see air when water solidifies in it and forms clouds. This is Clouds by Anachronist on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.
Air is such a vital component to our lives, when we get a setback we can describe it as having the air taken out of us. Nice cover of the Pink Floyd song by Ninja. Air can be gentle or can be violent like the end of the Anachronist song and the Crazyhears song. Crazy are playing The Monkey House tomorrow, which is a day with way too much music! Let’s keep the theme going, and play the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes.
I love the huge sweep of that song. Air, it’s completely insubstantial but birds and airplanes can still use it to fly. Great song by Joe, who is playing with The Wee Folkestra tomorrow at Radio Bean. Tomorrow at Higher Ground And The Kids release their new album Turn To Each Other. I have a ticket and can’t wait. Here’s a song from the album that came out Tuesday.
Sistas are from the Bay area in California but opened the show for Death and Rough Francis at the Flynn Theatre last Friday. That song really highlights the killer lead guitar they had working. Great new song from Mountain. That’s one of the songs that if you listen to a couple of times, it will get stuck in your head. Thanks for sending that to me this morning Ben Maddox! Tomorrow at Higher Ground it’s And The Kids and Alpenglow. I’m so psyched. Here is a song from their last EP Chapel.
11.) Eliza – Alpenglow
12.) The Way It Is – Maryse Smith
13.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
That song is so catchy I had to play it again. I should check out the rest of the album. Great title song from Maryse’s about to be released new album. Let’s go back to the air theme.
Swale were great Saturday night at Radio Bean playing covers and letting people form the audience sing with them. We had worked out a Marillion song for them to play and for me to sing, and now I have twice as much admiration for anyone who gets up and plays. Aya will play with Joe at the Bean tomorrow with Wee Folk. She is such a great singer and has well structured songs. Kat and Brett are both local treasures. This next guy is too, and he’s playing tomorrow at Juniper at Hotel Vermont.
I haven’t heard much from Rutland rockers Split Tongue Crow lately, but love that song from their first album. Great new ATK song. All of these next songs got played at the Flynn last Friday. This set is dedicated to my brother Ken.
It was a great show at the Flynn and Death closed with that one. Francis and Sistas were magnificent at the show too. OK, time for a couple more songs. Here is another new ATK song.
24.) All Day All Night – And The Kids
25.) Windows Down – Lendway
Ending where we began, driving around feeling the wind on your face. OK, maybe not at this time of year, but soon. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: Favorite Stranger (1995 Yin version) – Fish
