Song before: What The Snowman Learned About Love – Stars


From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Valentine’s Day was Tuesday so let’s begin tonight with a super talented artist who just released this new song.

1.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
2.) Filling In The Blanks – Kelly Ravin
3.) Sleep – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
4.) Your Eyes – Forest Gray

I loved seeing Forest the one time I saw him and really want to see him again. Lowell and Kelly are super-talented. I love that new song from Francesca. OK, it’s time to debut a new feature that I hope to bring to the show on a regular basis. Let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio. Ryan Cohen has agreed to record this interview and song.

5.) Able To Breathe – Peter Burton
6.) So Subliminal – Peter Burton
7.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton

Hopefully, in the near future we will do more interviews and have bands play live at Robot Dog and broadcast them on this show. OK, let’s play the next song on By My Side.

8.) Come Dance – Kat Wright Official
9.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
10.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
11.) Shepherd – Anais Mitchell

I dug deeper into the Young Man In America album and really liked that song. Great song from Maryse who used to play all over town. Linda is so talented and does such a great job promoting Girls Rock Vermont. Great song from Kat and the band. Last week I played a song from this band and wanted to go deeper into the album this week.

12.) Ocean’s Hourglass – Secret Heliotropes
13.) Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
14.) Powder – The New Siberians
15.) Goin’ Home – Eames Brothers Band

I love the bluesy sound of the Eames brothers. I’ve been playing a lot of new Siberians but that old song is pretty great too. I love that song from Will, who played around town in the 2000’s. Great song from Secret. This next band are playing tomorrow at the newly employed Switchback Brewing Company.

16.) I’m Thrilled – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
17.) This Melody – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
18.) Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft – Rue M.
19.) Golden Crutch – SWALE

Swale are playing on Saturday at a new coffee shop on Maple st called Maglianero so it will be fun to check out a new venue. Rue will play the Winter is a Drag ball that takes over Higher Ground this Saturday. Thanks for sponsoring us HG. Sarah and her band will rock the Rusty Nail in Stowe on Saturday and she always puts on a fun show. Phil and the band always put on a fun show too. This next band are playing at the show with Swale.

20.) Sharktopus – Villanelles
21.) Detective Norman – Sad Turtle
22.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
23.) Nothing In This – The Mountain Says No

Mountain will release their new album Golden Landfill at ArtsRiot tomorrow night. They just released a cool video of that song. The other three bands will play too, so it’s going to be a great show. So, you don’t need to be a musician and you don’t need to be a recording engineer like Ryan Cohen. You do need to find what works for you and let your passion drive you to accomplish what you want. In that way, we should all be like Ryan.

24.) Be Like Ryan – The Mountain Says No
25.) Slipstream – Black Ox
26.) Kaleidoscope – Arc Iris
27.) The Road – Anders Parker

Great rocker from Anders. Arc haven’t played town for a while but I’m sure they will be back soon. It was great seeing Cam Barrows last week so I wanted to play another song from his new band. Mountain have such a great new album coming out tomorrow. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song Before – Flicker – Tori Amos



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 and for filling the town with music this coming Saturday and Sunday when Grace Potter headlines the GPN festival. It’s a chilly night in town and the moon is close to full. Considering that this first band played in town on Saturday, this is the most appropriate song I could think of to open with.

1.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget
2.) Paperclip Chains – Let’s Whisper
3.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
4.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians

Yet another great song from the Siberians new album Black, Blue and White. Such a happy pop song from Milton, give or take the lyrics. Great song from Colin Nicholas Clary‘s band. I love Bridget’s sound. OK, let’s play the next song on Song For My Double. This is such a great song.

5.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
6.) Oversoul – Daniel Waterhouse (Dan Murphy)
7.) Unraveling Clouds – Black Ox
8.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle

It was cool to finally see Turtle at the Art Hop on Friday. Ox are a new band from Cameo Harlot‘s Cam Barrows and have some cool instrumental songs. Great song from Dan. I love that song from Homes. I missed this next band when they played the Art Hop but I bet it was a great show.

9.) Stop – REDadmiral
10.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No
11.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
12.) Hit – Blue Button

BB kick off GPN on Saturday and always rock. It was great to see Plains at the Art Hop on Friday. Same for Mountain. This next band play GPM on Sunday.

13.) Picture – And The Kids
14.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian
15.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland
16.) The Big One – The High Breaks

Breaks will release the vinyl version of their album Friday at Nectar’s and Saturday at Foam Brewers. I love that Elephants song. Same for the song from Casey Merlin Rae. Kids always rock. This next singer is playing Radio Bean tomorrow.

17.) The Mime – Joe Adler
18.) Edible – SWALE
19.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
20.) Barstools – Abbie Morin

Abbie is playing at Higher Ground next Wednesday. Phil and at least one affiliate are playing Radio Bean on Saturday. Swale are playing Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow. They will be joined by Spurs and The Middle Eight for their reunion show. Here is a song by that band who feature Ariel, Tyler, and Daniel Bolles.

21.) Put You Down – The Middle Eight
22.) Emptiness – Vedora
23.) Kids – Wren Kitz
24.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger

Binger played Nectar’s last night. Wren and Caroline O’Connor were at Light Club Lamp Shop tonight, but I missed them since I was doing this show. It should be fun to see Eight play again. This next band play GPN on Saturday and played a huge show at the Art Hop last Friday.

25.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
