I just got back from my 100th local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. My set of songs kept shrinking as the live music kept on going. I missed a criminal amount of great songs, but I played a bunch, and a bunch got played.
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been with WBKM for about two years now and still remember the day Eric sent me a message on Facebook saying they were thinking of having a local music show on their internet radio station. I came into the studio a couple of times to check it out, meet Tony, and we set it up, and here I am doing my 100th show. I’m going to start out with a set of classics, but first here’s a word from the wonderful folks at Big Heavy World.
Big Heavy World congrats on the 100th show promo
1.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
2.) All My Life – Wide Wail
3.) Bomb – Envy
4.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho
What a classic from Chin Ho! They used to play that all over town. Same goes for the other three. They are some of the greatest songs to come out of Vermont. OK, let’s play the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes
5.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler
I love that song, especially seeing it live. Let me ask my guest if we should play some more Joe songs. Hi Joe. (Joe, Eric Segalstad, and I chat for a little, then they begin to play. Joe was singing and playing acoustic guitar and Eric was alternating acoustic guitar and mandolin.)
6.) Midnight Jones and the Jimmer – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
7.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
8.) Coffee and Eggs – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
9.) Brothers And Sisters (dedicated to my brother Ken and to Johnnie Day Durand) – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
10.) The Only Night – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
Thanks so much for playing those beautiful songs. OK, let’s play some more Burlington classics.
11.) If You Get Lost – Swale
12.) Killer Bee Bop – Zoot Wilson
13.) Be A Good Citizen – Pinhead
Three classic Burlington songs from three different eras, all of which have laid the ground for the fertile music scene we now have. There are so many great musicians in town and my next guest is one of them. Hi Aaron Flinn (we chat and then he starts playing his acoustic guitar and singing).
14.) Love Is A Part (probable title) – Aaron Flinn
15.) Fractured And Reset – Aaron Flinn
Thanks for playing those. That was great! OK, let’s play some more classic VT songs.
What a great over the top rocking song. It’s Nectar’s 40th birthday and I saw an image somewhere of their old booking calender. It had Phish one week and Plan B the next. Classic great music from Peg and The Cush and a nice nod to Ethan Azarian in the Peg song. Well. there are lots of great old songs, but there are a lot of great new ones too. Here are some neo-classic Burlington songs.
Everyone who sees Wave loves that one. Ricky will get under your skin and stay in your head. I’ve not seen ATF live but hope to soon at The Monkey House when they play with Phil Yates & The Affiliates I’m also psyched to see Jane Boxall Percussion play with Vedora Saturday at midnight at Radio Bean. Jane plays on this song too.
I remember spending some very sweaty hours in the north end of Burlington during the video shoot for that song. Jane also plays drums with Rabbit. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it a hundred times more.
Song after: The Great Unraveling – Fish
