WBKM

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1 FM runs from 9-11pm and will go as follows.

Song before: The Last Of The Unplucked Gems – The Tragically Hip

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 our station and for reuniting Rocketsled for a show on Saturday. Today is a historic day and tomorrow will be our first day with a new President. I hope this opening set fits our mood.

1.) Whole World Hangs – Anachronist
2.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
3.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
4.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

That’s a great song about protesting. We will likely need that a lot in the next few years. I want to send that out to all of the women who will march on Washington DC this weekend. Great song from Anders. Great Woody reference by Homes and great song from Anachronist. OK, here is the next song on Shovel Down.

5.) Mistake – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
7.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
8.) The Circus – Cold Sweat

Sweat used to play at Texas and other clubs around VT and upstate NY. I wanted to play that one in response to the closing of the Ringling Brothers circus. Particles are playing at Manhattan Pizza and Pub on Saturday and always rock. Sean from RT now plays in The Nancy Druids and they were amazing last night at Radio Bean. Great song from Seth. OK, let’s keep rocking.

9.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
10.) Eggshell – The Mountain Says No
11.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
12.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

Great rocker from the all around wonderful Aaron. Great rocker from Doom. Great new song from Mountain! Rabbit rock so hard and are always fun. The days are still short and the nights are still long and this song just feels right.

13.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
14.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
15.) Not Quite As Good – 1881
16.) This Isn’t Your Parade – Crazyhearse

Such a fun song from their Tordadic Beige album. Great new song from 1881’s Action EP. I love the huge sound on both the Carraway and Andriana songs. This next song is from a bunch of wonderful local artists who recorded this song to support the candidacy of Bernie Sanders.

17.) This Land Is Your Land – Various Artists
18.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Artists
19.) Secret – Madaila
20.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright

Great song from Kat and the band. Madaila likely have nothing to do with the band the Medallions who are playing at the oath of action day at The Skinny Pancake Burlington tomorrow but stop in and find out for yourself. Great message from Bernie and all the wonderful artists. OK, let’s rock.

21.) All My Life – Wide Wail
22.) Don’t Turn Back – Kelly Ravin
23.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
24.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn

Zola and CC rocked us so well back in the 1990’s. Great new song from Kelly and old song from WW. This next artist is a constant inspiration to me.

25.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
26.) The Territory – Hana Zara
27.) Make It Work – The New Siberians
28.) Tha Critic – Ninja Custodian
29.) Ninjas Vs Zombies (Let’s Keep Our Heads) – Phil Yates

We may have to go out of our way to make it a point to keep our heads starting tomorrow. Great rocker from Ninja. Same for the Siberians. Hana and Peg create such strong music. I love them both. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

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 a bit of a slow week but tomorrow at noon tickets go on sale for The English Beat, if that is of interest. That show is coming up in September. It was so great to hear and see the dynamic songwriting duo of Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton last week at The Monkey House when they were joined by Julia Austin and Ann Mindell when they played as Envy. Let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean and Matt’s last album.

1.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone
2.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
3.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.

I love the line about what you throw away, to me, is solid gold. That sums up many of the similarities and differences between us all. Nice London Calling reference too. Great couple of songs from Chin. I love that Telephone song. OK, let’s play the next song on the Giant Places album.

4.) The Words Will Show – Lendway
5.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa
6.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

The Breaks played as Sabbath last night at Nectar’s. Barbacoa opened for Envy last week and played the instrumental surf version of Bloodboy. Envy played it properly when they opened their set. Nice instrumental from Lendway. OK, let’s play some rock and roll with some words.

7.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
8.) The Blackout – The Static Age
9.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
10.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers

I’ve always thought that was one of the great songs played in Burlington. The Snaz are coming to town for a show at Radio Bean tomorrow and one at The Monkey House on Saturday. I love that song by Static. When I saw them so many years ago it was the first time I saw Bobby Hackney Jr. play drums. He just played with Barbacoa last week at the Envy show and was totally amazing. Great song by Zola. Many years ago The Cush came to Burlington and enchanted us for a few years. They are just about to begin a European tour so let’s celebrate with some of their wonderful music.

11.) Hollow – The Cush
12.) Roll Me – The Cush
13.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush

I hope they have a great tour!! One of the cool things about the Envy show last week was catching up with old friends like this guy.

15.) Decide – David Jarvis
16.) Comin’ Home – The Hippnotix
17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Villanelles were just as great a week ago Wednesday as they were the previous three. That night Grand opened for them and were pretty amazing too. Hipp Notix are from New York and, if I’m not mistaken, are from Dave’s neck of the woods. So, this is the week that the Seven Days Daisy awards came out. Daniel Bolles also awarded some special not quite awards called Dandelions. He rightly awarded Villanelles for best rock band and somehow me for local music champion, though fellow nominees such as Luke Awtry, James Lockridge, and Girls Rock Vermont deserved it as much or more. Thanks Dan and 7 Days. Oh, and this next singer and band rightly swept the local popular Daisy votes in a few categories.

19.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
20.) Bad Oasis – farm
21.) Star – The New Siberians

That is such a great song. I love that Farm song. OK, this next singer is 17 years old but is on her way to become a star.

22.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
23.) Bury Me – Forest Gray
24.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
25.) Time to Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

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

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It’s the day before Halloween so I played lots of scary songs and let Mr E. Ghoul speak about energy, spirits, mortality and what lies beyond.

Songs before:Please Mr Gravedigger – David Bowie (Official)
End Of the World – Gary Moore with Jack Bruce on bass and vocals

promo

intro

Good evening, it is I, Mr E. Ghoul, here to play the substance that you quaintly call music for you this evening. The one you refer to as Tim has again this year lent me his body so that I may incarnate for two of your earthly hours. I have scary songs lined up to challenge your perceptions of what is in your reality and what is the reality beyond. Let’s begin with a ride on the crazy hearse. This is Barbacoa on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
2.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
3.) Demons – Waylon Speed
4.) Monsters – Cold Sweat
5.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit

That song was about the Black Cat Cafe, a place on Bank Street in Burlington, that burned in the 1970’s. People transferred from your mortal world to the spiritual one in the blast. Last week Tim played the last song on the Row EP from Anachronist. He will now play Lipstick and Dynamite all the way through, song by song, week after week, Black Cat was the first song. Nice tale of all the monsters in the world from the Syracuse band. Scary supernatural songs from Waylon and Crazyhearse. People died in the Black Cat fire but that is part of your mortal cycle. More cats will be born.

6.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
7.) Nosferatu – The Lestons
8.) Vampyre – David L. Jarvis

Scary song from Dave and a nice homage to one of the first times you learned dance energy and to move pictures and made something that can shift your emotions, to this day. I hope you weren’t too scared of the Kids tale of monsters in the closet. Let us now look west and take a trip through the graveyard.

9.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
10.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
11.) Death – Ccccome!
12.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

Such a scary tale of imminent doom from the mortal you call Milton. It is only your understanding of yourself as a part of your body that you fear the dogs and death. Despite the scary title, death is just the transformation from this realm to the next, and it contains beautiful irony in that the author is so full of life. That was a nice tale of digging into your subconscious through the power of myth by Anais. One night at Radio Bean Marco Benevento and Kat Wright put a spell on their audience. This is a recording of the event.

13.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band (just Kat but I left the name for the FB tag)
14.) Devil – farm
15.) Dragnet – Vedora
16.) Violence – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Ah yes, Halloween is a night to try on a new costumes and personas. Peg has donned the costume of Alice Cooper, as Violence is really Is It My Body. It’s funny because Alice Cooper is the costume of Vincent Furnier, and on it goes. Vedora speak well of the forces of attraction and forces are all that exist in the spiritual world. That was a frightening tale of Farm and the Devil, but it came out OK in the end. Up next is a song about masks and ghosts and blood.

17.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
18.) Masquerade For A Heartache – The Starline Rhythm Boys
19.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days
20.) Ghost – Phish
21.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things

Silly mortals, you cannot kill a ghost. Nice ghostly tales from Phish and Aaron Flinn. That energy transference that you call love is a powerful force. It sometimes requires a mask. Here is another band who play Burlington now and then, and they are wearing a mask.

22.) Children Of The Grave – JCHA
23.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
24.) Knight ov Swords – The Contrarian
25.) Ghostified – Persian Claws

It is time to return this mortal body to Tim. I hope you enjoyed my stories of your side and the other. Come back next week when Tim will continue to help you check out the music of this town, and perpetually do it again next week.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It had a wet and cool feel to it.

Song before: Life On Mars? – David Bowie (Official)

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cool evening in Burlington and we just had a strong rainstorm come in from the west. I went to Montreal on Monday with my brother Ken to see Judas Priest, and when I got home, the new album by The Red Telephone was waiting for me. This is Under The Northern Sky by The Red Telephone on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Under The Northern Sky – The Red Telephone
2.) Waiting For You – Swale
3.) Say Something – Silent Mind
4.) The Mime – Joe Adler

Great song from Joe’s new album. I just got Say Something and really like it. I will have to check them out more. Great song from Swale. Here is the next song from Anachronist‘s Row EP.

5.) Say It – Anachronist
6.) Tumbling Down – Raq
7.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn

Great song by Aaron. I thought it would fit the mood of the evening. The Raq song had me rocking. Up next is a classic Burlington band that I have not played. It’s time to change that!!

8.) West Wind – The Eames Brothers Band
9.) Masquerade For Heartache – The Starline Rhythm Boys
10.) Flood Victim – Zoot Wilson

Zoot is a legend in this town. Eames And Starline have been playing around for a long time and play a lot now. I’m happy to finally get them on my show. Wednesday night I went to Radio Bean to see Hana Zara. She opened with this one.

11.) Afterlife – Hana Zara
12.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag
13.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin
14.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker

I just love that Milton song. Great newish song from Alice. Brother Zag, Burlington’s most unknown performer, though kind of known otherwise. I love the lyrics that Hana sings. Let’s kick up the pace a bit.

15.) Spy-Fi – Barbacoa
16.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
17.) Any Day Now – The Dig
18.) The Last Thing – The Dig

Those two were from 2006, but they are playing Signal Kitchen tomorrow, so I wanted to play something by them. Great songs from Barbacoa and Persian. This next band have played around so much, they are honorary Vermonters. They will play the Flynn Theater in January.

19.) New Orleans Is Sinking – The Tragically Hip
20.) The River – The Tea Party (Official)

The Tea Party used to play town all the time. They just released a new album and are playing at Metropolis in Montreal in November. That was a song from their first album that was recorded at White Crow Audio in Burlington. It would be great if someone brought them back to town. This next band are coming back to town on November 7th at Arts Riot. I don’t have anything new to play, so here is a song from the last album.

21.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
22.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone

Another new song from Places You Return, the new album by The Red Telephone. I haven’t played any Binger yet tonight.

23.) Buttonz – Binger
24.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
25.) Last Night In Amsterdam – The Red Telephone

That was the last song from Places You Return. I’m so psyched to get to know the album. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Setup song: On The Air – Peter Gabriel
Song before: Lily – Kate Bush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’m going to play a ton of new music tonight, but let’s start with a couple of Burlington classics. This is Zoot Wilson on Wbkm, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Killer Bee Bop – Zoot Wilson
2.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell and the Unknown Blues Band
3.) My Atom Girl – The Dirtminers
4.) Three Cheers – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Happy birthday to a great guy, a great singer/songwriter,guitar player, a great father, husband and teacher. Three Cheers to Phil Yates on his birthday. The Dirthminers always put on fun shows and played geopolitical songs about having a crush on the girl in your class, you know, stuff like that. Raph Worrick was a driving force in the band and he is one of Phil’s affiliates. This next song is from the brand new (released two days ago) album featuring many of Burlington’s greats. It’s also the name of a show on Tuesday nights from 7-9pm on WBKM.ORG.

5.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
6.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
7.) The Ground Is Giving Up – Aaron Flinn

Aaron is one of Vermont’s true talents. I have not caught up with him recently, but hope to soon. Maryse is playing the Cambridge Music Festival this Saturday with Swale and others. Go see her if you can. You will be better off for it. Great new album from Joe Adler. He will play Saturday night with the Rangers at Nectar’s. This next band just released a very nice and happy video.

8.) Smile – Dwight and Nichole
9.) In Comes The Tide – PossumHaw
10.( Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin

I’m really beginning to love the riff in Stars and can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next. I love that song by PossumHaw. I ran into Hana Zara at Radio Bean on Tuesday when Joe Adler and Samara Lark Brown played, We agreed that she owed me a physical copy of her first CD. I ran into her while walking downtown on Wednesday and she gave me a copy. Here is one of the many great songs from that album.

11.) Nathaniel – Hana Zara
12.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
13.) Sunny Side Of The Couch – The Leston’s
14.) 88 – Wave Of The Future

Great new song from Wave. That EP came out a couple of weeks ago. I’m heading to Manhattan Pizza to see them after this show. Dino Bravo are opening, but I will be too late to catch them. Matthew Stephen Perry played with the Leston’s and Chris Farnsworth played with Lobot, so if you listen to those two songs you will get a hint of what Bravo sound like. Friday and Saturday the South End of Burlington will be filled with art and music. Wave are playing tomorrow at Speaking Volumes on Pine st, and this next band are playing Saturday on King Street, as part of the South End Art Hop.

15.) Eighty Nine – Black Rabbit
16.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger
17.) High Water Mark – The Pants

Classic Burlington rock from the nineties. Another great new song from Joe’s album Many Things & Many Scenes. I hope I can make it to Rabbit on Saturday. The college kids are back and September 1st was a huge moving day in Burlington. This is the next song from Ninja Jane.

18.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
19.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
20.) Wiser – And The Kids

And The Kids will play at the Art Hop on Flynn ave on Friday and will play at Nectar’s with Joe on Saturday. Yea! Great new song from Better. I ran into Michael Clifford on Wednesday. He wanted my Hana Zara CD but I would not give it to him. To make it up to him, a bit, here is a song from one of his bands.

21.) Ready To Race – Lendway
22.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I love the John Whyte lyric asking if we can win the human race, and like the lyrical tie in with Lendway. Of course we can win the human race. Act with joy and promote fun for all. We’ll all win that way. OK, here’s more Joe.

23.) Many A Girl (Back Of A Sail) – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger
24.) Ain’t No Telling – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
25.) Many A Girl (Back Of A Sail) reprise – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger

Joe’s band and Kat’s band are pretty much the same, so I thought I’d mix them together. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my 57th local music radio show on internet only WBKM.ORG. It started and ended a bit mellow, but had some rock in between. The song before was Kings by the Church in honor of the return of Game Of Thrones.

Song before: Kings – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The temperature has gotten into the 60’s, the snow is melted, and flowers are coming out. That is one way we know that spring is here. The angle of the sun is another. Here’s Peg Tassey on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Stay Away From Sarah (acoustic) – Chin Ho!
3.) If Time Was A River – Anna Padernik And Her Apologies

Anna is best known in VT and around the world in her band Vermont Joy Parade, but her solo songs are what grab me. That was a great song by classic VT band Chin Ho! I love that Peg song. We are into spring, yea!. I just had a little extra money to buy an album and picked up one I’ve been wanting to for a while.

4.) Liar – Maryse Smith
5.) Guitar – Michael Chorney And Hollar General
6.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

Great song by one of VT’s treasures. I hope you listened to how amazingly well Aaron played that guitar. Michael Chorney has put a lot of music into VT, and will be working on a project with Maryse. That could be cool. Here is the next song on Dancing With The Big Guy.

7.) Funky Breakdown – Ninja Custodian
8.) Flux Capacitor – Wave of the Future
9.) Yardsale – Lendway
10.) 1,000 Lies – Sean Toohey

Sean is half of the dynamic songwriting duo, with Matt Hutton, who brought us the songs of Envy and Red Telephone. Sean also worked with Alice Austin on To A Star In The Yard and played the Burlington show for that album’s release. Part of me thinks I played Yardsale because it’s almost that time in VT, but most of me played it because it’s a great song. Flux is the most Back To The Future of the Wave songs. That was recorded at Nectar’s. I remember seeing Funky many many times at Nectat’s . Up next is another new song from Elephants Of Scotland.

11.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland
12.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
13.) Waterlanding – Swale

To Forget About You. It was fun to get a bit proggy for that set. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music, internet only, radio show on Wbkm Dot Org. The show had a bit of a theme.

Song before: Every 10 Seconds Before – Active Heed

promo

intro

From our small city, to the great big wold, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s getting colder, but there were still people walking around Church st. They were playing music on the street and in the bars. Last week I opened with a song about California by Joshua Glass. Tonight let’s start with New York, My Lovely on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) New York, My Lovely – Josh Glass
2.) Lonely Man – Ana Pardenik
3.) Die A Little – Satori Bob

John Baumann and Satori Bob used to play Burlington all the time. He moved out west but this song has the great Robert Gagnon on it. Bob is such a great player and has a wonderful Vermonter dry wit. Best Facebook poster ever? I love Anna’s songs and that one seemed to fit the mood of the day. Next up is another of those staggeringly great players in Burlington.

4.) The Ground Is Giving UP – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days
5.) Monarch Butterfly – Jenny Montana
6.) My Atom Girl – The Dirtminers

That’s a great song by the Dirtminers about the father of the Pakistani atomic bomb. Here in Burlington we like to look at, and listen to, the events of the world and try and make sense of them. Raph Worrick and Jeff LaBossiere and company do a great job of it on that song. It’s really catchy too. Jenny used to play a bunch of the Women Exposed in Fold Fashion and Rock And Roll shows, that Gabrielle Douglas used to always be a part of. I love that song from Jenny. Next up is the next song from the great album, To A Star In The Yard.

7.) Keeping You Wild – Alice Austin
8.) On The Radio (?) – My Other Friend
9.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner
10.) The Blackout – The Static Age

Static were an ’80’s band in the 2000’s that gave us the mega talented Bobby Hackney Jr. on drums who went on to front ROUGH FRANCIS and Marie Claire Johnson who rocked hard with Fire the Cannons, wrote some great solo piano songs that I really miss and would love to play, and met up with Mike Gordon for a tour. She often plays at Honky Tonk Tuesdays at Radio Bean. I had a great time at the Bean last week seeing Blue Button and Rough Francis on Saturday and Hana Zara on Sunday. This Saturday Thompson are playing. My Other Friend came to town once and I bought their three song CD that has no song titles. Great stuff though.

Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK. A lot of people have a lot of opinions, but the fact is it was a tragedy that stunned the nation and effects us deeply 50 years later. People in Burlington like to think things through and try to organize thoughts to make sense of worldly events. Black Rabbit do a great job of it on this song about that horrible event in our history.

11.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit
12.) Ruffians – Rough Francis
13.) Destroying Everything They See – Blue Button
14.) I’m Sick Of It – Shark Victim

SV are always fun. BB and RF rocked the Bean hard on Saturday. Thanks guys!! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
