Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 28 and can be streamed from our website or this Facebook page link WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Train In Vain – The Clash

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. What a crazy week, it’s been like summer and in the ’90’s and suddenly today it’s a chilly fall day. You’ve got to love Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a band who are about to release a new album called Most Every Night.

1.) Get Loud – Near North
2.) Jesse – The Parts
3.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
4.) Wicked World – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

It’s so cool that the Breaks did the whole album of Sabbath songs in a surf style. I’m playing it all the way through song after song week after week. Cool song from Phil’s upcoming album. Great song from The Parts. Thanks Near North for sending me a copy of your new album on blue vinyl. It sounds great. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM Live At Robot Dog.

1.) Intro->Accidental Graveyard-> The Dead Shakers
2.) Taung Child -> – The Dead Shakers
3.) Superpowers -> – The Dead Shakers
4.) Medfield – The Dead Shakers

Thanks to Ryan Cohen from Robot Dog for making us all sound so great and thanks Burlington Beer Company for the libations. I especially want to thank The Dead Shakers for taking us on a rocking journey. OK, this next band have been playing around for ages and Mr. Charlie Frazier is a local legend. He has kept Vermont’s desire for the music of The Grateful Dead going for years.

5.) Intros -> – Blues for Breakfast, the band
6.) Scarlet Begonias -> – Blues For Breakfast
7.) Music Never Stopped – Blues For Breakfast

Vermont loves the music of the Dead and Mr. Charlie’s dedication to the blues. So, this weekend it was so hot I’m sure lots of people headed to the beach.

8.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
9.) Kindergarten – Lendway
10.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
11.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone

Great song from Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton. Druids are Sean’s new band and they are playing Saturday at The Monkey House so go check them out. I miss Lendway. All last week was beach weather. It’s getting late in the year and darkness is coming earlier.

12.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
13.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
14.) Cheese Whiz Salad – Wren Kitz
15.) Queen City – Cave Bees

I’m psyched that the Bees have that recorded so I can play it for you. Burlington is The Queen City and I rock it as many nights as I can. I caught Wren Kitz and his band at Club Metronome last week and they were stunning. Lauren Costello plays in Wren’s band and in The Dead Shakers. Great songs from Andriana and David. Josh Shedaker plays in The Dead Shakers and in this next band. He just lost his grandmother so we want to send him lots of love.

16.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
17.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
18.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
19.) Mary – Plan B

That’s a classic from the ’80’s. I love the truth in Joe’s song that we are all brothers and sisters and that we should take care of each other in times of pain and in times of joy. Great rockers from Seth and Dino. We all have a limited amount of time on this world so please spend it well.

20.) Precious Time – The Cush
21.) So They Say – The New Siberians
22.) 45 – Clever Girls
23.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

Classic song from Anais. Clever are at The Monkey House tomorrow so go check them out. Great songs from Siberians and The Cush. 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 17 on WBKM.ORG.  It felt really smooth, like everything was in place.  I felt like the arc from the blues, into Black Sea Quartet, into the rock, then back to the blues, flowed right.  I was dancing like a fool to most of the songs, had the windows open, and the sound cranked.

Song before: A Day in the Life/Give Peace A Chance – Paul McCartney

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington.  Even though the rain has stopped and the sun is out, I’ve got the blues, and the cure.  This is Big Joe Burrell on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

 

1.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell and the Unknown Blues Band

2.) The Mechanic – Blues for Breakfast

3.) The Red Army Liberates North Winooski Ave – Black Sea Quartet

 

Said I never met Mike Deutsch, but saw him play a few times, and he was good.  It was sad to learn that he passed away at 41 years old.  Talked about knowing Mr Charlie for years and having tons of respect for him.  He and Blues for Breakfast play often.  Talked about how Joe moved to town and taught us how to play the blues.  Talked about the statue for him on Church st.  Said it’s time to check out the next song on New Appreciation For Sunshine.

 

4.) Distance – The Cush

5.) Mary – Plan B

6.) American Proxy – The Hero Cycle

 

The Hero Cycle sound like pure joy to me, and I was dancing around the studio.  One of the fun things about this gig, is pulling out old CD’s and listening.  OMG, how did I not remember the song Mary.  The Cush, a slice of sonic heaven.  Tomorrow Thompson Gunner are going to play at Nectar’s

 

7.) The Rutland Song – Thompson Gunner

8.) Sunny Side of the Couch – The Lestons

9.) Wall To Wall – The Lava’s

 

The Austin sisters have made great music in this town for a long time.  Pulled out the Lestons CD today, and loved this song.  May have to go see Thompson tomorrow.  Last Saturday I saw Cave Bees, Parmaga, Black Rabbit, and a band play the Pixie’s album Doolittle.  The band was Bobby Hackney jr from Rough Francis, Caroline O’Connor, and from Blue Button, James Belizia, Jason Cooley, and Eric Olsen, and what a tremendous job they did playing those complex songs.  Last night, I went out to see Persian Claws and Barbacoa.  The first band on, Violette Ultraviolet were really good too.

 

10.) Confession – Violette Ultraviolet

11.) Bobfred – Seth Yacovone Blues Band

 

Seth is another local legend, always playing out.  I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.  Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
