Song before: I Believe In Father Christmas – Greg Lake


From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. It’s just a couple of days until Christmas. We are just past the darkest day of the year and the days will, slowly, begin to get longer. It’s time to through a giant party with lots of lights to bring cheer in the darkness. Let’s begin tonight with some local bands talking about the holiday season in their unique ways.

1.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No
2.) Happy X-Mas (War Is Over) – Joshua Glass Music
3.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
4.) The Last Carol – The Cush
5.) Holidays – Sarah Blacker

That’s a lovely song by the lovely, and talented, Sarah Blacker. Just a stunning song by the Cush. The Carraway song sounds so right at this time of the year. Great cover of the John Lennon song by Josh. It’s a powerful message of peace and one that we will need in the coming year and years. I really hope Mountain get that sled for Christmas this year. As for me, I don’t want much for Christmas. Some nice songs and a killer guitar solo will be great. Oh look, I’ve got it right here. This is the next song on Shovel Down.

6.) A Question Mark To Answer – Seth Yacovone Band
7.) The Bells of Electric Haloland – Electric Halo
8.) Winter Serenade – Electric Halo
9.) Oh Holy Night – Electric Halo
10.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget

Great take on the classic Stones song. It seems appropriate at the darkest time of the year. Johnnie Day Durand plays the saw with Silver and is joined by Joe Adler in Halo. Great song from Seth and the band. I just love this next band. They played a stunning show at The Monkey House last week. Here is their Christmas EP Kiss Mess.

11.) It’s Christmas – SWALE
12.) Snow Angel – Swale
13.) Just Another Day (Christmas) – Swale
14.) Hallelujah – Swale

Hmmm Swale. They are loveliness personified. OK, let’s move on to some classics.

15.) Carol Of The Bells – Gordon Stone
16.) Silver Bells – Josh Glass
17.) Silent Night – Tammy Fletcher
18.) Oh Holy Night – Cat Hoffman

Those were all nice takes on classics. Here are some more.

21.) Frosty The Snowman – Construction Joe
22.) Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – Linda Bassick
23.) God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Viperhouse

Those were all nice takes on classics. Here are some more.

26.) Merry Christmas Baby – Sandra Wright
27.) Jingle Bell Rock – Sarah Stickle
