I just got back from doing my local music radio show. I walked in unprepared but think I pulled out a fun one.

Song before: The Rakes Song – The Decemberists

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s 9pm and already dark. It’s still been rainy and chilly at night and sunny and warm but not super hot. It looks like this will not be one of the warmer summers on record, but there have been many stunning days. I caught some of The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival last weekend and saw some great music. One of the artists that I really enjoyed was Abbie Morin, so I got her album and here is Peace Of Mind on WBKM.org and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Peace Of Mind – Abbie Morin
2.) I Walk The Line – Zoot Wilson
3.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
4.) Two Sleepy Arms – Lendway

The High Breaks played a super cool show at Radio Bean at the Precipice. Three of the guys used to be in Lendway, so I wanted to play Arms since I have no Breaks to play. I love Split Tongue Crow and that is just a gorgeous song. Fun cover from Zoot. I think he said that was the modern version. Abbie is going to hit the road soon. If she’s in your town, check out her show. After the Breaks set I ran into Todd Gevry and asked if he had heard of And The Kids. He said he had heard the name. I recommended staying and listening. After their set he seemed pretty enthusiastic. I thought they were great and they played a killer version of this song.

5.) All Day All Night – And The Kids
6.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
7.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
8.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
9.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

I’m missing the Republican debate tonight, and I’m assuming I’m just going to miss 10-17 people saying the same Approved Talking Points. I had to play Bernie to counter some of that. Bill’s message still resonates hard. Binger played a killer version of 3 at the Precipice, and some pretty killer other songs too. I caught a bit of Johnnie Day Durand playing saw at The Precipice and wanted to play Brothers to give you a hint, and to thank Joe for all that he has done to make our town sound great. Love that Kids song. I’m going to play this next song because I love it and it’s great.

10.) If You Get Lost – Swale
11.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
12.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn

I think I played all three of those songs because I love them and they are great. OK, on to the next song from The Mountain Says No’s album JV. This is the eponymous song.

13.) The Mountain – The Mountain Says No
14.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
15.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse
16.) Holmes, Sweet Holmes – Cameo Harlot

I miss Harlot. Crazy just played the Radio Bean last Tuesday. I love the Vetica song. Hmmm, Mountain. OK, let’s go classic.

17.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
18.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
19.) Always Monica-Down At The Duck – Chin Ho

Three Burlington classics from three different eras. Great songs too. This is another beautiful song that I love.

20.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik
21.) WhoNeedsFriends – Paper Castles
22.) Clocks On the Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist

Great song with great lyrics. Thanks Jeremy. Castles played a killer set at the Precipice at the Light Club Lamp Shop. Great song from Anna. This next song seems to be getting some traction.

23.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
24.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

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 Wbkm Dot Org. I had one stunning mix and played some sweet songs.

Song before: Wondering Where The Lions Are – Bruce Cockburn

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been thinking about eternity and the nature of what we are recently. It’s weird to think of the spirit that is you is so tied to a physical body, and that large wonderful body would be almost nothing if you took away the water. Let’s play some songs about water and think about what it means to be alive. This is Left One In The Rain by Alice Austin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
2.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
3.) Waterlanding – Swale
4.) Nothing But The Water II – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Great song from Grace talking about one of the uses of water, it’s a great thing to balance the element of fire. The Swale and Cush songs have such a lovely watery feel. (note: the mix from Orange into Landing was seamless). Of course, rain is a very important iteration of water. OK, let’s move on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes,

5.) Many Things & Many Scenes – Joe Adler
6.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell
7.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson
8.) Promises – Vedora

Great song from Vedora. Matt has a side project every Monday in February at Radio Bean from 7-8. Last week I worked until 7:30 and missed it. Rats. Great classic songs from Burlington’s past with Joe and Zoot, and great song from Burlington’s present by Joe. This next singer is playing the Bean on Saturday at 7. I’ll see if I can make it if I get out early enough.

9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
10.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies
11.) Kill The Lights – Monoprix
12.) Change My Heart – Rusty Belle

Rusty are from North Hampton but come to Burlington often. They are playing the Skinny Pancake on Friday. Cool song from Brett Hughes and co. The Anna song would have fit nicely into the first set. This next band is playing The Monkey House tomorrow.

13.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness

Great band name and sweet song. Hover were a ’90’s Burlington band. It’s almost time for the And The Kids new album and tour. If you liked the Hover song, you’ll like this next set too!

17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
19.) Throw Me Away – Spill
20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

That song used to rock Burlington hard and often. I love all of those rocking songs that helped Burlington to keep expanding the sound of our town. I’m very psyched for this show next week at the Flynn Theatre. These three bands will be rocking out.

21.) Scream – Sistas in the Pit
22.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
23/) Freakin’ Out – Death World Wide

I’m sending that set out to my brother Ken who will go to the show with me. OK, let’s head back to classic Burlington.

24.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
25.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
26.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
27.) Geograph (2015 mix) – Elephants of Scotland

Ending where we began, on the edge of sea and sand. Ken and I, and most of the elephants, will see the lights of Montreal this summer when we go see Rush. 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?

Here is a song by Fish that he just released a video for. It’s about the dangers of what we are doing to our world and about not appreciating beauty in our lives

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?

I just got back from Radio show 28 on WBKM.ORG.  It was a moody and rocking affair with a dash of chaos.  Classic Burlington lined up with happening now Burlington.  Both held up well.

Song Before: A Full Moon In March – The Waterboys

promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are The Sounds Of Burlington.  Tonight it will drop into the 30’s, but there will be a few warm days ahead.  I know you will go swimming again.  When you do, don’t be a shark victim.  This is the Theme Song from Shark Victim on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Theme Song – Shark Victim

2.) You Don’t Like Me (Do Ya) – Pinhead

3.) Earth Angel – Poxy

4.) Confession – Violette Ultraviolet

I’ve seen VU a couple of times this year and had a great time.  Poxy rock, very quickly, and will be playing 242 Main sometime soon.  Pinhead are such a classic VT band.  It’s so fun to watch J Boom Mateik and Michael Clifford rock out as SV.  Here is the next song on A Small Arrival

5.) The Last Room You’ll Ever Sleep In – Swale

6.) One From Two – Linda Bassick

7.) Blue Again – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies

I’ve really enjoyed seeing Anna this year.  I’m happy to have music of hers to play.  Linda is a wonderful singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and plays with Steady Betty, when not doing her solo projects.  She also goes to a lot of shows and supports her fellow musicians.  Way to go Linda.  Hmmmm, Swale.  I missed some music this week, but looked at Wednesday and found Cameo Harlot at the Monkey House.  I chatted with the guys from Vetica when I walked in, and found they were playing too.  Cool.

8.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica

9.) Holmes Sweet Holmes – Cameo Harlot

10.) Carion My Wayward Son – The Contrarian

I’ve been listening to Contrarian’s Advanced Magic lately, and that one caught me.  The Cameo song was a nice brooding rocker with a strong finish.  Another great song by Vetica.  I’m heading to the Art Hop tomorrow to catch Dino Bravo, and maybe Rough Francis.  A long time ago, in Burlington, there was a man named Ethan.  He formed a band called the Hollywood Indians and Peg Tassey wrote a song about him.  She tossed in a poem to begin with.

11.) Poem for Torin/Ethan’s Stoned – Peg Tassey

12.) Bad Oasis – Farm

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 radio show 23 on WBKM.ORG. With the cool rainy weather, I was a little mellower than sometimes, but the show rocked. I played some of the music I bought at the Precipice.

Song Before: Afterglow – Genesis (live)

Promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Sarah Grant and Lee Anderson and everyone else who made The Precipice a great show. Special props to Joe Adler for helping make it happen. This song is dedicated everyone who loves their brother or sister, and especially to my brother Ken.

1.) Brothers and Sisters – Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger

2.) Carry That Load – Anna Padernik and Her Apologies

3.) Soul Piggy Bank – Swale

That was the second song on Swale’s album A Small Arrival. Next week we will get to song three. I talked about not making enough money to get by, and how that relates to most VT musicians. Talked about feeling torn about leaving Swale at the Precipice, to see Anna. But, Anna’s voice is great and I love her solo songs I bought her CD at the show. Before that was Johnnie Day Durand playing the saw with Joe and the Rangers. Happy Birthday yesterday. Another cool show was Jane Boxall Allen playing a set on marimba. She had some guests, including Raph Worrick who sang this song as she played.

4.) Let’s Complain – Ray Fork

5.) Pyramid – Jane Boxall

6.) Afterlife – Hana Zara

Talked about loving the crystal clear stories Hana sang at the show. I bought a disc and read that this song is from when she was living in Nebraska and had just made the decision to move back to Burlington, and the song was about the space between the decision and the change. Jane sang great, played great, and was a wonderful front woman. She also played with Steady Betty. Caroline O’Connor played with Steady Betty too. Her band, Vedora tore it up on Saturday.

7.) Terrarium – Vedora

8.) Linea – Vetica

9.) While Egypt Was Burning – Doll Fight!

Yea! Brand new Doll Fight! This is a cool song about Americans reaction to the Arab Spring. They did not play the Precipice, but their singer/guitar player Christine Mathias played sax with Steady Betty. Vetica really rocked on Sunday. Some people sat for the show but I could not. Vedora was fantastic, and it was great to see them again. We have a cool local weekly magazine called Seven Days. Many of the people who work there, play in bands. I can’t play any Monoprix, with drummer Steve Hadeka, since there is none recorded, per Daniel Bolles, but I can play three others. The first is a band that had the audience dancing so hard, the ground was a bit more level on Saturday.

10.) Bob Bannon – The Skamaphrodites

11.) Hallelujah – The Dirty Blondes

12.) Come To Space – Rough Francis

Bobby Hackney jr plays in Rough Francis, Diane Sullivan plays in the Dirty Blondes (and is fit enough to do onstage pushups), and Dan Bolles sang for the Skamaphrodites. All three work for 7 Days. I hope you enjoyed checking out the very current music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
