Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm June 15th and can be heard on 107.1FM or from the Facebook page of WBKM and will go as follows,

Song before: I Don’t Remember – Peter Gabriel

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week of warm and hot sunny days so let’s head to the beach.

1.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
2.) A Walk On Ballard Beach – The High Breaks
3.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
4.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
5.) Lovely Day – gneiss

It’s been so nice to have so many lovely days lately. Gneiss are at Red Square tonight. There has been lots of blue sky lately and Rabbit sing such a cool song about it. They played a great show last Friday at The Monkey House. I remember seeing Blotto a couple of times at Hunts a long time ago. Great song from the Breaks. Now that Phil has taken the Affiliates joke to Chicago, it’s time for us to embrace the Ray Fork joke. OK, let’s play the next song on Camera.

6.) Shortcuts – 1881
7.) Miranda – Ninja Custodian
8.) Voodoo Camaro – Wide Wail
9.) Windows down – Lendway

It’s the perfect time to drive around with the windows down, perhaps in a magical camero. Classic song from Ninja. I’m working my way through the set of EP’s from 1881 called Lights, Camera, and Action song by song, week by week. OK, last Saturday I joined the Friends of Jim’s Basement and saw these next four bands.

10.) Winnebago – Ellen Degenerates
11.) Goner – REDadmiral
12.) Shark – Greaseface
13.) Fruity Pebbles (Legend Of The Samurai) – Shred Flintstone
14.) Cross Country – Steven Wright

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at WBKM and for bringing Mr Wright to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts tomorrow, and for all of the other great music they bring to our community all the time. Great song from the New Jersey band with such a great name. Flintstone rocked hard in Jim’s basement last week. Greaseface also put on a brilliant show that night. Admiral have stripped down to more of a acoustic band and were cool last Saturday too. Ellen closed that show nicely. OK, let’s play another Burlington classic.

15.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
16.) Fly On The Wall – Zola Turn
17.) Heartbreak Baby – Villanelles
18.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica

Great song from Vetica. Heartbreak rocks hard. Same for Zola. Such a fun song from Zoot. OK, let’s go out for a ride.

19.) Freeway – Totally Submerged
20.) The Mime – Joe Adler
21.) I Am A Hatchet – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
22.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Such a great song from David. It’s sad to see Phil Yates move to Chicago but at least he and the band played a blistering show at the Monkey House last Friday. I’m sure we will see him again. Joe’s been playing around lately in his new band a.m. rejoice which I seem to keep missing. It’s hard to miss Submerged since they play all around Vermont all the time. OK, let’s keep up the theme with a song about the ocean.

23.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
24.) Sober – Vedora
25.) In The Rain – Plan B

Plan are a classic Burlington band from the ’80’s. I love how huge that song is. I always loved it when Vedora played Sober and Matt went way off on guitar. Hmmm, song about the ocean. Hmmmm. OK, there’s not much time left so let’s keep rocking.

26.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
27.) Something I Drew – farm
28.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Great rocker from Seth Yacovone and the guys. Classic song from Farm who played in the 2000’s. Great rocker from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Songs after:

Sunsets On Empire – Fish

Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time June 8, 2017 and will go as follows:

Song before: I Will Dare – The Replacements

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was a rainy week but the last couple of days have been beautiful and sunny and this town is filled to the brim with jazz. Tonight’s show will be a jazz free zone. Let’s begin with a new wispy piece of music from one of the classic bands in town.

1.) Here’s Where You Were – SWALE
2.) She Has Your Name – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Bulldozer – The Zero Likes
4.) Nightingale – 1881

That is the next song from Lights, Camera, Action and is the first song on the Camera EP. Great song. Zero Likes feature Doug McAllister from Ninja Custodian and Doug just sent me that a couple of days ago. Thanks!! Great song by Phil Yates and the band. Phil is moving on to Chicago soon and will play one more show tomorrow at The Monkey House. I will be thee. Hmmm, Swale. OK, last night I went over to Robot Dog Studio and recorded an interview with live songs from Dino Bravo. I want to thank Ryan Cohen for doing the sound, Jeff Arbor for helping to set up and Tom Wolf for doing video. Here we go.

5.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo
7.) Crime Scene – Dino Bravo
8.) A Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo

Thanks for rocking us nice and hard Dino! They mentioned they have an upcoming show with The Dirty Blondes so let’s play one of their songs.

9.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
10.) Whiskey High – Swillbillie
11.) Too Good – Black Rabbit
12.) Ninjas Vs Zombies (Let’s Keep Our Heads) – Phil Yates

I’m happy for Phil but sad that he won’t be playing around all the time anymore. I’ve enjoyed many shows over the years and have played his music on my radio show since the second one I did in March of 2013. Black Rabbit will play the show with them tomorrow over at the Monkey House. I think Swillbillie will play the upcoming Nectar’s show with Dino and the Blondes. OK, this next band are in town tomorrow night for a show at Jim’s basement.

13.) Two Weeks (‘Til The End Of The World) – Grand
14.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
15.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
16.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another classic from Phil and the band. Great cover of the Stones song by Bridget. Broccoli played back in the late ’80’s in Burlington and were lots of fun. Grand are so much fun. I really like a lot of Phil’s songs but he and the band have played many shows with some really fun bands and I got to know them because of Phil. Here are a couple.

17.) Sparks – The Color Exchange
18.) Jessie – Danny LeFrancois and The Parts
19.) Tropa – YURT
20.) Flicker (Song For Clara) – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another great Phil song. Phil and the band played with Yurt at the Monkey House in July of 2016. They played with The Parts at Manhattan Pizza and Pub in January of this year. They played with Color Exchange at Nectar’s in 2015. This next band also played that show.

21.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
22.) Place ov Dead Roads – Casey Merlin Rae
23.) The Light – Kat Wright
24.) Grass is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

That one features Raph Worrick on the keys. Great rocking song from Kat and the band. Their guitar player, Bob Wagner, is joining Seth Yacovone Band tonight at Nectar’s for a band they are calling Water For Gasoline. That’s a brand new song from Casey Merlin Rae, who is living in Washington DC but comes back to play now and then. Great song from Homes. OK, there is not much time left so let’s play a few more songs as we say goodbye to the mighty and wonderful Phil Yates.

25.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
26.) Burn It Down, Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
27.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
28.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Thanks again Phil!! 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 was a little rough with the last song popping out of the player when I put a song into the queue, and having a couple of breaks blown away by the very busy Fire Department, but fortunately the songs were great, and held the day.

Songs before: 21st Century Schizoid Man (live) – April Wine
Move Through Time – Persian Claws

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. There is a lot of great music happening in town this week and there was a lot last week. The GPN festival with many great national bands, many great local bands and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals is Saturday and Sunday, but last Saturday was all about this guy. This is Shoreline In Jersey by Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Shoreline in Jersey – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
2.) Smile – Dwight & Nicole
3.) The Heart Is King – Pinhead
4.) Neighbors – And The Kids

And The Kids played a killer show opening for Joe last Saturday at Nectar’s. The crowd loved them and were completely on for the ride. Classic song from a great Burlington band. Have you seen the Dwight and Nicole video for smile? It will make you do so. Great song from Joe. So yea, tons of music at the waterfront in Burlington, lead by this band.

5.) Nothing But The Water (pt 1) – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
6.) Hometown – Gold Town
7.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
8.) Nothing But The Water (pt 2) – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

I remember seeing Grace at Nectar’s on a couple of cold February days a long time ago, and watching the audience grow week to week, despite the sub zero temperatures. I knew she was taking off. I’m glad to see how big of a band they have become. The Villanelles are fun live. Both they and Gold Town are playing GPN along with other great bands like Anders Parker Cloud Badge, The High Breaks, Caroline Rose and lots of others. It should be a great time. OK, let’s play the next song on Ninja Jane. This one always rocked live!

9.) Fly On The Wall – Zola Turn
10.) Surface Tension – The Pants
11.) Never Satisfied – THE VACANT LOTS

Great song from their album Departure. They started in Burlington but now play all over the US and just started a tour of Europe. The Pants and Zola are great Burlington bands from the ’90’s. Last Saturday before the Rangers show, I went to the basement of one of the greatest music advocates in town, James Lockridge, and saw some heavy punk rock. I loved the twin guitars in this song.

12.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
13.) Impaled On A Cuddly Spike – Dog Hospice
14.) The Wrong Song – The Lentils
15.) Green Peaks \ Dark Valleys – Get A Grip

I missed Grip at the party but loved the pure fury of that 44 second song. The Lentils played acoustic punk at the party and were lots of fun. I need to get more of their music. Dog Hospice was one guy with guitars strapped to his drum kit and the mic taped to his mouth with duct tape. It was kind of a cool show. Up next is a band who played the show, but went on before I could get there. Fortunately they are playing tomorrow night at The Monkey House, and I will be there!

16.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
17.) Round Sum – Cave Bees
18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards

That was a classic ’80’s punk band. Cave Bees and Shephard’s Pie are playing the Monkey House show, but I don’t have any of the latter to play, yet. Up next is a great new song from a new favorite band who have played around for a long time.

19.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
20.) B.A. Pariah – Endless Jags
21.) Everyone Likes To Fight – Swale

Swale’s new album should be out very soon on white vinyl with a bonus album full of remixes. They are playing Saturday at 4pm at GPN if you want to see them. Great song from Jags who come to town now and then. In the north end of town you can go down almost any street and see lots of sunflowers.

22.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
23.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
24.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
25.) The Love You Feel – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot

Lowell has played around forever and is playing at GPN. Got a sense of how good it’s going to be yet? Great song from Vetica. Dave and James are classic Burlington artists. Sunday, after GPN, there is a huge after party at Higher Ground featuring Marco Benevento. Here is a song with him and Kat Wright live at Radio Bean

26.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
27.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger
28.) Say It – Anachronist
29.) Until The Day I Die – Slingshot Dakota

Sorry that song got cut and my outro started to play. Ah, the joys of live radio. Carly Comando and Tom Patterson got married this week and I wanted to play that song in honor of the occasion. The best of luck to you!!! Anahronist have an album coming out soon. Great song from their last EP. The Joe show at Nectar’s last Saturday was great. He played the full album including a wonderful version of Pun. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
