I’ve had to prerecord my shows recently to match up the Net signal with the FM signal. Tonight’s show will go as follows.
Song before: Let’s Go Crazy – Prince
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I had to prerecord last weeks show so on Wednesday I saw the Church and then was gutted to hear that Prince had passed away on Thursday. I had a ton of respect for him and was blown away the one time I saw him. Both The Monkey House and Higher Ground have tribute nights to Prince coming up soon. And, if Prince’s loss did not leave you cold enough, Vermont got a nice little snowstorm on Tuesday. That’s such a Vermont thing to have happen. It’s kind of wild to see flowers in bloom and covered in snow. Local artist Jeremy Gilchrist took some cool pictures of the phenomena so let’s begin tonight with one of his songs.
1.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist
2.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara
3.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue
4.) Let’s Move – Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band
That’s such a great song from Kat and the band. I can’t wait for the new album. That’s a cool song from Cricket. They are playing on Sunday at the Radio Bean, if you want to check them out. That’s such a powerful song from Hana. Great song from Jeremy. OK, let’s play the next song from Callisto.
5.) Wishing Well – Alpenglow
6.) Stay – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Presence – Satori Bob
8.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
Abbie is recording a Live At The Fort show on Thursday night, tonight, at the Skinny Pancake. Satori are a combination of John Baumann and Bob Gagnon. John used to play that song at coffee shops all around Burlington. Bob still plays all around Vermont. I can’t wait until Slingshot come to town on May 10th. Yea. Great rocker from Alpenglow. On Friday Binger release their new album at ArtsRiot. Here is one of the new songs:
9.) If I Knew – Binger
10.) Sequoia I – Binger
11.) Sequoia II – Binger
12.) Sequoia III – Binger
13.) Strings – Bingr
That was another new Binger song. The middle three were from their last EP. OK, usually I play music by Vermont musicians but for this next set I will play some songs about Vermont.
14.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson
15.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
16.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
17.) Hallelujah The Hills – Hallelujah The Hills
Great Vermont references in that song. Lindy used to always be the second band on at the Radio Bean birthday party, though not for the last couple of years. I love the Burlington imagery in the Bern song. Such a classic from Willie. So, the HTH song was from an older album, but they just released a new one called A Band Is Something To Figure Out. On May 12 Swale will head to Boston to play a show with HTH, so here is a song from the new album.
18.) Hassle Magnet – Hallelujah The Hills
19.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
20.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
21.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho
Classics from Chin and Broccoli. Burlington’s music scene became so great back in the ’90’s and has stayed that way. Great rocker from Swale. I love that new Hills song. OK, there is time for a few more. Let’s keep rocking.
22.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
23.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
24.) New Age Woman – Pinhead
I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
Songs After: Crucifix Corner – Fish
Emerald – Ace Frehley
Purple Rain – Prince
