I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. I played a couple of new songs and a couple of new to me songs.
Weeping Willow – Persian Claws
Armadillo – Swale
Preparing To Fly – The Waterboys
Song before: Falling Farther In – October Project
I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I enjoyed the day off last week and spent it with family and friends and friends that really are family. It’s great to find wonderful people and let them be part of your life. I’ve been thinking about seeing music and seeing people on the stage and you always want to think the best of them and hope they are wonderful people pursuing their dreams and art. Sometimes you don’t know people at all. Sometimes you get to know them a little, sometimes a lot. On rare occasions you get to know someone very deeply and get to see their delicate and powerful soul and find the staggering beauty in that. Tonight I want to start with a set from one of the most beautiful souls I have had the chance to know.
1.) Robin’s Song – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey
3.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey
Those are all staggeringly beautiful and strong songs from the Kissing Circle era and created and performed by the magnificent Peg Tassey. This next performer is pretty wonderful too.
2015 seems to be the year of change. That is a song about change from Maryse Smith who is leaving town. Hopefully, she will come back and visit from time to time. Hana moved back to Nebraska but sure put her mark on this town. I’m sure she will come and visit sometime too. Great songs from Milton and Josh. I saw this next artist the night before Thanksgiving at Radio Bean and greatly enjoyed his set.
I loved seeing Envy back in the ’90’s. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell, from the band, are in a cool new band called The Nancy Druids, who played a killer set after Dom that night at the Bean. Sean used to play with RT. Fun new song from Admiral. Nice ditty about aliens from Dom. Last time I finished playing the Phil Yates & The Affiliates album No Need To Beg, so now it’s time to start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week. For the next few weeks we will go all the way through Red Flannel Hash by Black Rabbit.
Classic song from the ’90’s in Burlington. It was cool to see Eef get back together to play a show last Friday at ArtsRiot. They played old ones like Male and new ones like mix, which is about making a mixtape for the girl you like, you know, that thing we did back in the ’80’s and ’90’s. Mountain played that show also and did a killer version of Sermon. Great song from Rabbit. More to come in the next several weeks. OK, let’s keep rocking.
Those are four of the most intense songs ever played in Burlington. It’s not a complete list, but there is a lot of greatness in that set. OK, let’s keep rocking.
I just got a bunch of Kochalka so expect to hear lots more soon. Great song from Swale. Killer new song by Francis that is unfortunately still timely. Maybe someday we really will make it a summer of love. OK, let’s step back in time.
23.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
24.) So They Say – The New Siberians
25.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox
I love the smooth and strong sound of Vox. I just love that new Siberians song. I love that classic from Decentz. I love this last song too.
26.) Bad Oasis – farm
I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
