Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM went as follows:

recording begins
Song before: Alone – Children in Paradise

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring us here at the station. They have Smooth Antics playing tomorrow if you want to check that show out. There has been a lot of music about lately so let’s begin with a guy who played a solo show last Sunday at Radio Bean.

1.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain
3.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
4.) The Last Of The Unplucked Gems (live) – The Tragically Hip

I saw music Saturday night and Sunday night so it was not until Monday that I watched the full last concert from The Hip. It was powerful and poignant. The have played in town many times and have played all over Vermont. All of their shows were great and they put a ton of beautiful music into our world. I cannot thank them enough. That new song from the Siberians has been stuck in my head since the album came out. I see no signs of it stopping soon. Great song from the Burette Douglas solo band. I love that Phil song and it was cool to see the stripped down show on Sunday. OK, here is the next and last song from Giant Places. It’s been so warm and sunny and everyone is driving around with the windows down.

5.) Windows Down – Lendway
6.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
7.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
8.) Love, Like Language – Happy Abandon

Happy played a stunningly great show at Foam Brewers last Friday. Homes followed and put on a great show too. Milton has a brilliant new album and is playing next Thursday at the Fairgrounds (???). OK, let’s rock. Better Things just released a new album called Getting Worse. This is the fist song.

9.) Getting Laid In New Hampshire – Better Things
10.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
11.) Lunacy – Cave Bees
12.) Ex-Files – Better Things

I’m psyched to check out Better Things on Saturday at 242 Main. I just checked out their new album and it’s really cool!! Bees played a stinging show at The Monkey House last Saturday. They were joined by Black Rabbit and Zeus Springsteen. Rabbit closed with that rocking song. Hmmm, Better Things. This next band are playing Saturday at the Enosburg Opera House.

13.) StatistiK – The Mountain Says No
14.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
15.) U Thought U Ne Funk (intro) – DJ A-Dog
16.) Unveiled – Pours

I wanted to play the Pours song song for two reasons. One: It’s quite good and I like it. The second is that their drummer Chris Shar has had physical issues for years, and drummed his heart out for us for years anyway. He just started a Go Fund Me campaign to get a mobility device so he can get out and about more easily. He’s given a lot to us. It’s time for us to give back, if we can. DJ A-Dog passed away a few years ago but put a stamp on this town, and now there is a giant party every year for him. This happens all around town on Saturday. Tons of DJ’s and MC’s will play but a few bands, like Rough Francis, will play too. Forest Gray will play and this next band will play too.

17.) Colorful Girls – Dwight & Nicole
18.) Paint With The Sun – Arc Iris
19.) Scared – The Tragically Hip
20.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara

Hana move to Nebraska a while ago but is back in town tonight to enchant us with her beautiful music. I love that Hip song and and they did a great version of it at the last show on Saturday. Arc just released a new album full of songs they keep playing in Burlington. OK, let’s celebrate the return of Hana with a set of her songs.

21.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara
22.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
23.) Meghan’s Song – Hana Zara.

I love her music and her imagery and the way she lets her songs unfold around us. OK, time for a couple more. Let’s go out in style.

24.) Grace Too (live) – The Tragically Hip
25.) New Orleans is Sinking (live) The Tragically Hip

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