I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. Last week I had it well together but this week the work time change hours from the last couple of weeks are really catching up. I slacked and did a short show then filled the rest of the time with Bowie songs, which I might have done anyway.

Songs before:Suffragette City – David Bowie
It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie

recording begins

Song before: Station To Station (live) – David Bowie



From our small city to the great big world these are The Sounds Of Burlington. It’s not as bustling in town this week but is a beautiful mellow night. I want to apologize since I think tonight is going to be a bit of a shorter show. My whole work schedule changed a couple of weeks ago and working early mornings Monday to Friday is taking some getting used to. I’m not sure if the change is permanent or temporary, but I’ll get used to it soon. Last Friday I got to see four great bands. This first band played another stunning show at The Skinny Pancake.

1.) If You Get Lost – Swale
2.) The Saddest Man – Myra Flynn
3.) Spi-Fy – Barbacoa
4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

Joe Adler and the Rangers played a wonderful show at Nectar’s last Friday. Myra opened and I picked up her Half Pigeon album and Saddest really jumped out. In hindsight I should have not left Barbacoa so soon, they played after Swale at the Pancake, but I thought the timing was tighter and Myra’s band was pretty amazing. Sometimes there is too much music in town. OK, let’s play the next song on Red Flannel Hash.

5.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
6.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants of Scotland
8.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains

Plains are playing at The Monkey House tomorrow and I’m very psyched for the show. I love that new Elephants song. Mountain played a couple of stunning sets at Zen Lounge last Saturday. I love the Rabbit song, and all of their songs. I just got this next song last week and played it on last weeks show. I liked it so much I want to play it again.

9.) Barstools (live) – Abbie Morin
10.) Wiser – And The Kids
11.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
12.) Elanor Rigby – Screaming Broccoli

What a fun rocking cover by the late ’80’s Burlington band. I miss Ninja. Kids are out and touring the country. If they come to your town, go! Great song from Abbie Gail. This is another great Burlington classic.

13.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
14.) Extended Werewolf – farm

Both of those are such great songs. Well, I’m going to call it a night, but I have a bunch of Bowie stacked up if you want to listen for a while. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Radio Show 56 Thursday April 3, 2014 9-10pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG   Leave a comment



I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.ORG. I played a lot of bands who have, or just about to release new albums. I played a couple who are not.

Song Before: Vale – MIDLAKE BAND



From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds Of Burlington. It was sunny today and it’s been in the high ’30’s and low ’40’s all week and the snow and ice are melting. It feels like flowers could start blooming and the world is coming to life and musicians are set to release the new music that the have grown. Elephants of Scotland released their new album, Execute and Breathe, on April 1st and they played a killer two sets at Nectar’s that night. This is Endless part 1, on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Endless pt 1 – Elephants of Scotland
2.) Joyless – Swale
3.) Endless pt 2 – Elephants of Scotland

I got home from work Monday and the album was waiting. I listened to it Tuesday before work, then went to see them after work. Tremendous new album from the guys. I was going to play them back to back, but my impish side had me play Joyless in between. Swale should have the new album out any time now, and played a great show at The Monkey House last week. Up next, there is a odd phenomena in Burlington where sometimes the sky glows purple.

4.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
5.) Take Your Gold Away – Lendway
6.) Blue Light Shines – The Dwellers

The Dwellers are Gabrielle Douglas‘ solo band and I love that song. The Cush have an album that’s ready to go. One of my friends has a copy, but since I don’t have a copy yet, I had to play Blue Light. I love Lendway and wish more other people did to, so they’d get out and play more. I chatted with Michael Clifford at the Elephants show and he is learning to do sound with Sergei (sp?). Go Michael. I love that song from Zola. Next up is the next song from Dancing with the Big Guy. This was recorded in 1990 and a few years later a lot of bands sounded like this.

7.) Cold Stompin’ – Ninja Custodian
8.) Linea – Vetica
9.) Imaginary – Envy
10.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit

I haven’t heard from Black Rabbit in a bit and got a message saying they are done the next recording. We’ve got that to look forward to. Great song by Envy who used to rock this town in their day. Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton are working on new songs, so maybe something will come from them in the future. Vedica have called it a day, but Luke Awtry said they might finish off and release the album they have. Next time you hear a rapper, compare him to Ninja Mike on this song, and consider that Mike was playing the drums while rapping! I ran into Ted Pappadopoulos at the Swale and Ryan Ober (I’ve got to get some of his music to play!!) show last week at the Monkey House, and he said he and Brendan Devitt have recorded a lot of new songs and may have a new album or three out soon.

11.) 1965 – The New Siberians
12.) Not A Nice Guy – ROUGH FRANCIS
13.) Mousetrap – Elephants Of Scotland

I love that Elephants song. Rough Francis finally released the video and hopefully lots of New Siberians soon! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?



Song after: Sunsets On Empire – Fish
