I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. I started out with a couple of local highlights from the Neil Young show, then played some great local music.
Song before: Hymnalayas – Gong
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful day in Burlington and lots of people are out and about tonight. It was also a beautiful night last Sunday when Neil Young and The Promise Of The Real came to Essex. He came to Vermont to support our GMO labeling law, which is the subject of his new album The Monsanto Years. This is one of the songs from the album that heavily mentions Vermont and the importance of knowing what we are eating, This is A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop by Neil Young on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.
1.) A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop – Neil Young
2.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson
3.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist
4.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner
It’s summer in Burlington and that was a band from Rutland and that was recorded at Nectar’s. Great new song from Jeremy. At the Neil Young show, Lucas and Micah Nelson were part of the Promise Of The Real. They are the sons of Willie and Lucas sang a great version of Moonlight In Vermont last Sunday in Essex. Oh, yea, it’s summer. Let’s head to the beach.
Such a nice cool breezy song. If you like that song, head to Radio Bean tomorrow. Mammal just played Summervale earlier this evening. When you go to the beach, obey the lifeguard and watch out for sharks, especially when surfing. So, on Saturday there is a celebration of the Old North End of Burlington. People get together and walk around the ONE and check out art and music and food and what businesses are doing and all sorts of fun things. It’s called The Ramble and this next set of music is dedicated to Burlington’s Old North End.
Killer rocker from Death. I love the imagery of the north end in Hana’s song. Loud and Proud nicely describes the ONE, thanks James. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the killer new album from The Mountain Says No.
I still remember that time when there were not a lot of cool rock bands around for a few months and then came Cannons. Oh, how they rocked so many great shows. Killer song from Particles who are touring all over the US and just played Toronto too. I’m still in awe of Plains from that Nectar’s show. Hmm, Signs And Wonders. Hmmm Mountain. When I put tonight’s show together the beginning just flowed then I hit a wall after Nowhere. I just wasn’t sure where to go next, for a moment.
Killer song from Joe’s album. He’s done so much for the local music scene, especially writing and playing songs like that. Nice rocker form Raph Worrick and the gang. Classic VT song from Chin. Yet another great song from Rabbit’s new album Red Flannel Hash. Recently, there was a band who played a bunch of shows then just stopped. I’m missing them and feeling a little lacking, like maybe i need to take some vitamins or something.
Killer new song from the second Vedora album. If you liked the whistling on Birds, go check out Aaron next Wednesday at Red Square. Killer song form the classic VT band. I feel a bit better after that shot of Vitamin Dee, I hope you do too. I saw this next band twice last Thursday. They played Summervale, I left then did the show and walked into Light Club Lamp Shop just as they were about to go on. Both shows were great but the later one was out of this world. Here’s a couple of their songs.
I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I might be off next week seeing the Decemberists but we can to it the week after that, and the week after that…..
Song after: The Great Unraveling – Fish
