I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. You can likely guess which Presidential candidate was in town from the songs I played before my set. It was so warm in the studio, I had the window wide open and the tunes blasting out.

Before: This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT musicians
Orange Like Water – The Cush
Delirious – The Church Band
Strange Phenomena – Kate Bush

recording begins

Song before: Goldfish And Clowns – Fish

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Winter finally arrived in the last week. It’s a bit warm tonight and will warm up this weekend, but it’s nice to have some snow and a little cold. Burlington is hopping tonight as there is a Presidential candidate in town speaking at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. There are lots of supporters and lots of protesters and lots of people peacefully participating in the process of democracy. It’s kind of a cool thing. Tonight let’s begin with some classic Burlington rock and roll.

1.) All My Life – Wide Wail
2.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
3.) Popular Crowd – Swale
4.) Lean In – When Particles Collide

I just love that song from the mighty road warrior duo. If you ever get a chance to see Particles, go. They always play a great show and play with other great bands. Killer rocker from Swale. They are playing a couple of shows this week, including doing a cover set from the Pants this weekend at ArtsRiot. They are playing as themselves Friday at The Skinny Pancake. Killer classics from Zola and Wail. OK, let’s play the next song from Red Flannel Hash.

5.) BS Passes – Black Rabbit
6.) Angels and Devils – Invisible Homes and Scott Mangan
7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants of Scotland
8.) Into The Light – Great Western

Killer song from Western. Great brand new song from Elephants. That sounds nicely like an old Genesis song. Great unreleased song from Homes, with a little help. I just got that one and really like it. Great song from Rabbit!! This next singer just hit the road and is playing all over. She recorded this one live on the road.

9.) Barstools (Live at Otis Mountain Get Down) – Abbie Morin
10.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith
11.) The North – Hana Zara
12.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

It’s great to hear Bernie speak about real issues that will help people. This was recorded in the ’80’s and he is still consistent today. Local music writer for Seven Days, Dan Bolles asked several local people in the music business for top local album picks of the year, among other things. I feel fortunate that he asked my opinion. I could not decide between JV by The Mountain Says no, or Red Flannel Hash. If I had a third choice it would have been The North from Hana Zara. It’s a great song and a great album. Maryse Smith just moved to Philadelphia, but we would love to have her come back to play a show anytime. Glory is such a great song. Wow, Barstools rocked!! OK, let’s switch gears a little.

13.) The Alchemist – Pours
14.) All Your Basis – Invisible Homes
15.) Yardsale – Lendway
16.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler

Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger are playing Nectar’s tomorrow, so if you like that song, go check them out. I miss Lendway. Killer new song by Homes. It’s a bit odd, but it’s growing on me. Great song from Pours. This next band are playing Saturday night at the Zen Lounge.

17.) Long Term Sermon – The Mountain Says No
18.) Distance – Vetica
19.) Let’s Bury Bob – Screaming Broccoli
20.) Naomi’s Back – Fire The Cannons

Great song from one of the great rock bands that have played Burlington. Classic song from Broccoli. Vetica broke up, but just released a couple of albums of unreleased songs. Great song from Mountain. This next band put on a killer show just after midnight on New Year’s Eve at The Monkey House, and it was a great way to start 2016. I especially liked this song.

21.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Burn – The Dirty Blondes
23.) Heavy Psych – The Cush
24.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains

Great song from Plains. They will play the Monkey House soon. Powerhouse song from the Cush. Fun rocker from the Blondes. OK, let’s go classic Burlington.

25.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck (live) – Chin Ho

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

26.) Sayonara
