Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday November 2, 2017. It can be streamed from the website above or this link: WBKM It will go as follows:

Song before: Cover Me – Bruce Springsteen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I hope everyone had a nice Halloween and tomorrow is my mother’s birthday so Happy Birthday Mom! Let’s begin with a local musician who just released an album called Other Side Of The Rain.

1.) Magic In This Mystery – Robin Gottfried
2.) Movin’ Out At The End Of The Night – Ben Slotnick
3.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
4.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn

I just love that song by Aaron. He is talented and wonderful and writes such lovely songs. The Andriana song is inspired by the shortening days and lengthening nights. I want to thank Ben and Robin for getting in touch and letting me know about their new music so I can play it for you. Great stuff. OK, last night I went to Phoenix Books Essex & Burlington and saw performances by Swale and Mark Daly, but the main event was Ray Padgett and Brent Hallenbeck talking about Ray’s new book about cover songs. It’s called Cover Me and it was fascinating to hear stories of why rock bands choose to cover other bands songs. This next set was inspired by that discussion.

5.) She’s Leaving Home – Silver Bridget
6.) Sitting Still – Ninja Custodian
7.) Dizzy – Peg Tassey MUSIC
8.) The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian
9.) Elanor Rigby – Screaming Broccoli

Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and did a great rocking version of the classic. Casey Merlin Rae also records as The Contrarian and put out a whole EP of Blue Oyster Cult songs in honor of Sandy Pearlman. Ray mentioned Dizzy as one of the great local cover songs so I had to include that one. Ninja began with a few really cool originals but always played lots of covers to fill out long sets at Nectar’s like that REM song. Bridget play all covers but in their own wonderful way. OK, let’s play the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. It’s a cover too.

10.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
11.) Resurrection – Death World Wide
12.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
13.) Future Shock – Ruckzuck

I recently came up with the idea of putting Frequency and Shock back to back so I hope you enjoyed that. The version of Shock was from the Robot Dog Studio studio session they did when they were in town in October. Great song by Death. Nice surf version of the Sabbath song. Ryan Cohen has been releasing the Live At Robot Dog performances and interviews as a podcast. He just released the one from Clever Girls. Here is a song from that session. They played a rocking version of it last Saturday at The Monkey House.

14.) 45 – Clever Girls
15.) Big Starr – sleeping in
16.) Paying It Forward – Apartment 3
17.) Electric Trim – Lee Ranaldo

Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo played an amazing show at ArtsRiot last night. That is the title song from his new album. Girls, Sleeping, and Apartment played a great show last week at the Monkey House. That was Apartment 3’s last show. Thanks for the music. Speaking about being thankful for the music, Swale opened the show for Ranaldo with this song.

18.) Felon – SWALE
19.) She Moves In Passages – Late Night Sneaky Uncle
20.) Skeleton Star – The Cush
21.) Uncle Skeleton – Lee Ranaldo

Lee played a super fun version of that song last night. It’s just a couple of days after Halloween so I had to play a couple of skeleton songs. I caught Uncle a few weeks back and it’s about time I got some of their music on the air. Anne-Marie has such a wonderful voice. So does Amanda Gustafson! OK, let’s play one more Lee song.

22.) Moroccan Mountains – Lee Ranaldo
23.) The Light – Kat Wright
24.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
25.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No

OK, it’s time to start rocking hard and what better way to start than with Ricky. Great cover song from the amazing Bob Wagner. I love that Kat song. The Lee set last night was just stunning. OK, crank up the volume to 11.

26.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
27.) Drug Laws – Swale
28.) Mr Reed (live) – Seth Yacovone Band

All of those songs rock so hard! Thanks everyone. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
Question – Fish
Small Town Bringdown – The Tragically Hip
In The Garden – The New Siberians
Homesick – Jakals
Waiting For The World To End – The Depth and the Whisper
Something Out There Is Wrong – The Church Band
Stop Your Sobbing – The Kinks
Ronnie Rising Medley (A Light In The Black, Tarot Woman, Stargazer, Kill The King) – Metallica
I Heard It Through The Grapevine – Creedence Clearwater Revival
Megaphone – Joshua Glass Music
regular programming

The 2000SUCKSteen Ball at Radio Bean with 23 performers December 30 2016   Leave a comment

 

I had a great time seeing music on December 30th. When I originally saw the show listed it sounded like DJ Disco Phantom (Brian Nagle) was going to spin some records featuring artists who died in 2016 (Two Thousand Sucksteen). I thought I might wander in and check it out then realized Arc Iris were playing at Higher Ground and got a ticket. Shortly after that I realized the Sucksteen show was going to be filled with 20+ local artists performing songs. It was too good to pass up so I ignored my purchased ticket and headed to Radio Bean to commiserate on the staggering loss of artists last year.

I arrived a little early and caught a couple of songs by Hailey Ward. She sang a sweet song about Tic Tac Toe and the appropriate cover of What Are You Doing On New Year’s Eve. She sounded pretty nice then it was time for the show.

Sarah Stickle began the night singing and playing an acoustic guitar. She did a great version of Guy Clark’s LA Freeway.

Jonah Salzman at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Jonah Salzman took the stage next and played some Leonard Cohen songs on acoustic guitar. If It Be Your Will was strong and cool and I’m Your Man jammed for a long time.

img_2984

Brett Hughes at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

The mighty Brett Hughes took the stage next to play some Merle Haggard Songs. White Line Fever and You Don’t Have Very Far To Go were both strong songs and superbly played.

img_2996

Most of Swale at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

SWALE took the stage next, or at least most of them did. Eric Olsen, Tyler Bolles, and Jeremy Frederick rocked out a blisteringly loud and completely overdriven Ace Of Spades and it was glorious.

img_2998

Nate and Bones at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Nate (Benet?) sat down at the piano by the soundboard and was joined by Bones Blankenship on fiddle. They played Leon Russell’s Masquerade and it was beautiful and powerful. Bones left but Nate played another Russell song, A Song For You, and beauty filled the air.

img_2999

Nate at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Samara Lark Brown took the stage and played and sang some Bowie songs. Magic Dance from the movie Labyrinth was unexpected and fun. Under Pressure was very powerful and her singing was wonderful, both on the David and Freddie parts.

img_3008

Tim Lang and the gang filled the stage and he sat at the keys as they played a song I did not know. I think it went something like honey didn’t mind it yesterday, honey don’t mind it tonight. Whatever it was, it sounded nice.

img_3011

Tim Land and the gang at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Lily Sickles took the stage next and played acoustic guitar and sang some Merle Haggard songs. The Bottle Let Me Down and Mama Tried were fun and I greatly enjoyed her singing and playing and sense of humor in between.

img_3017

Lily Sickles at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Devin Robinson took the stage next and played a cool and mellow acoustic Moonage Daydream. Even without the lead guitar firepower the song is one of my favorites. His version of Leonard Cohen’s So Long Marianne sounded great too.

img_3023

Eastern Mountain Time brought the whole band and played another Merle Haggard song. Sing Me Back Home sounded powerful and beautiful.

Heloise and Disco Phantom at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Up to this point everyone had been singing and playing instruments but there was a karaoke part of the night too. Disco Phantom played the records while Heloise was joined by Lilly Sickles for a fun version of Careless Whisper. Heloise followed with George Michael’s Everything She Wants then closed the set with Prince’s I Would Die 4 U. She has a great voice and all of her songs were very well sang.

img_3033

Heloise and Lily at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Mellow Yellow played as a quartet with bass, drums, keys/vocals, and Linda Bassick on vocals and guitar. They played a fantastic version of Space Oddity and it filled my heart with joy. The keyboard player did a great job on the lift off section of the song.

img_3039

Mellow Yellow at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Sarah Griffin took the stage with an acoustic guitar and sang some Leonard Cohen songs. Dance Me To The End Of Love is another of my favorite songs and she made it sound great. Her version of Bird On The Wire was pretty cool too.

img_3041

Sarah Griffin at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

The duo AM Radio played acoustic guitars and sang with sweet harmonies. Lyin’ Eyes was just gorgeous and their version of Sharon Jones 100 Days, 100 Nights was lovely.

img_3049

AM Radio at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Kat Wright and Bob Wagner played a great version of Cohens Why Don’t You Try. A Mose Allison song with a lyric about everyone’s gone missing was poignant. His playing and her singing were as out of this world as always.

img_3061

Ryan Miller at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Disco Phantom returned and spun some records as Ryan Miller jammed out a super fun Suffragette City. Lee Anderson took the stage to do Gene Wilder’s Crazed Boat Ride from Willy Wonka and it was as over the top and joyously fun as you would expect. Ryan wrestled the stage back for a version of George Michael’s Faith that had the full house dancing.

img_3065

img_3070

Hannah Fair at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Hannah Fair took the stage next and was joined by a sax player. They played Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka. They followed with Careless Whisper, and even though it was the second time it was played that night, it sounded so different with her singing and playing acoustic guitar and that super familiar sax line filling out the sound.

img_3077

Hannah Fair at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Disco Phantom queued up another record and Ryan Ober launched into The Jean Genie. He sang in the crowd and he sang out the door on the street and sang a bit of the song on the stage. It was nothing but fun.

img_3085

Ryan Ober at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Amanda Gustafson sat down at the keys and let loose a staggeringly beautiful song in the way that only she can. I did not catch the song but the lyric about when your time is up you’re going to see all your friends was equally as poignant as the Mose Allison song earlier in the night. (Per Amanda “It was a song by Richard Thompson that he wrote for Fairport Convention called, “Meet on the Ledge”. It was to honor Dave Swarbrick, the longtime fiddler and one of the founders of Fairport Convention. They would close every show with that song – it was sort of their anthem.”)

img_3093

Amanda Gustafson at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Jacob, who is one of the bartenders at Light Club Lamp Shop took the stage with Disco Phantom playing a record. He had a great voice and did an epic version of Let’s Dance. His voice was so deep and perfect for the song.

Addie Hebert at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Addie Herbert sat at the keys and played a super cool version of Bowie’s Oh You Pretty Things. Nicole D’Elisa joined her for a fun version of Life On Mars and I was in a happy place.

The horn section for Nico Suave and the Bodacious Supreme at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

Addie left and Nicole was joined by the rest of Nico Suave and the Bodacious Supreme. With two guitars, bass, drums, singer, and a three piece horn section they had a huge sound and jammed out a powerhouse version of Earth Wind & Fire’s Shining Star. They followed with a super long version of Prince’s Kiss where everyone got a solo. The room danced with joy.

img_3116

Nico Suave and the Bodacious Supreme at Radio Bean pic by Tim Lewis

They left the stage to make way for the last band of the night. Barbacoa opened with a song Leon Russell wrote and the Carpenters made famous. Superstar sounded great. The pulled out the second repeat of the night and played another blistering version of Motorhead’s Ace Of Spades. It was great to hear again. They got to stretch out a little since they were the last ones on and played both Ziggy Stardust and Starman. They lit up the crowd with Little Red Corvette and called it a night.

I didn’t stay long, since I had to work in the morning, but I’m certain Disco Phantom made sure every legendary musician who passed away in 2016 was represented. It was a wonderful night of music and a joyous walk home.

I had a great time seeing music last Wednesday at Nectar’s. Wednesday is my Saturday so having a show run from 3-5 in the afternoon was just perfect. It was a warm and sunny day and the walk downtown was lovely. I arrived just about 3 and lots of people were milling about and talking politics. I found a seat in the window until the band got set up to play. Billed as Bob Wagner and friends the band was filled out by Josh Weinstein on bass, Steve Hadeka on drums, Mike from Sad Turtle on keys and Walker on electric guitar. Bob played some stunning electric guitar and sang. Since the special guest of the day made a video about the event and said the band would be the Beatles, they opened with a rocking version of One After 909. They followed with a bunch of classic songs that I feel like I should have known but couldn’t quite place. I loved them all and had fun rocking out as the room slowly filled behind me. The second song was Ophelia. The third was something about you’re the only one, what cha trying to do. The fourth was a familiar sounding instrumental. The fifth may have been something to the effect of from time to time and your destruction. The sixth was a fun bluesish rocker. Throughout the whole show the band was ridiculously tight with a super insistent bass, steady drumming with fun fills, and lots of keyboard swirls. Walker and Bob played some leads and both were just great. A seventh song about standing strong on your love was lovely, then they left the stage as the politicians entered the room and encouraged people to vote.

Sue Minter spoke about the differences in Republican and Democratic politics, basically top down or bottom up funding plans. Peter Welch encouraged us to go vote. Patric Leahy spoke of his service to Vermont and then he introduced the special guest of the day, Minnesota Senator Al Franken. Al was both funny and serious and genuinely cares about people and is happy to be in a place where he can help. He empathized with how hard it is to go knock on doors and call people to get them to come out and vote, when most of us have jobs and kids and families. He encouraged us to ignore them, after all kids have more fun when parents are not around. A 10 year old can operate a microwave and the 10 year old can teach the 5 year old. That’s just science, and Democrats believe in science. He encouraged us to take this election very seriously and after the show he brought most of the audience over to city hall to vote early.

The mass exodus was not ideal for the band and there was a long break that followed. I debated leaving but hung out for a bit and they came back to the stage. They played a stunning version of Crosseyed And Painless and the few people still in the room were thrilled. They played another that I did not know, but thoroughly enjoyed, and it was something about I always wanted you to love me. They capped the afternoon with a super long epic version of Reeling In The Years and Bob’s guitar work was out of this world.

I headed out pretty quickly and stopped at Drifter’s for a light dinner. It was a lovely way to spend a day in Burlington.

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM can be heard from the Facebook link, will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time tonight, and will go as follows:

Song before: It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station. They have a packed week of great bands. I just got a copy of the new album by Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band called By My Side. It’s really good so let’s dive right into it.

1.) Come Dance – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists
3.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vt Musicians

That was recorded in the 1980’s but still sounds so relevant today. With the upcoming election, if we can’t vote for Bernie, we can still follow his advice. Please vote and please don’t vote for the clown. OK, it’s time for the next song on the Invisible Homes album Song For My Double that I’m playing all the way through week after week until it’s done.

4.) The Clown – Invisible Homes
5.) Who’s Your Fool? – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
7.) Jazzmaster – Made by Robots

I caught Robots over the summer at Jazzfest and really liked them and have been wanting to play some of their music. Jet were a classic band from Burlington’s illustrious ’90’s. Another great new Kat song. OK, so today is my Mom’s birthday. I spent some time this morning with her and my brother. She really likes this classic Vermont singer, so this one goes out to you Mom.

8.) The Power Of The Word – Jon Gailmor
9.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
10.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
11.) Monarch Butterfly – Jenny Montana

Jenny used to play that song in the 2000’s though I have not heard from her in a while. It’s such a fun song. Jeremy Gilchrist is raising money to make his new album Threaded. If you like that song, please consider supporting him by pre-purchasing it. Maryse still comes back to play now and then and Jon is a local legend. This next band release their new album Traces tomorrow (I knew it was soon when I recorded the show but did not realize it’s out tomorrow).

12.) 1 – Madaila
13.) Nature – Madaila
14.) You Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
15.) I Do – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
16.) Woods – Madaila

Those were the opening closing songs from Madaila’s Traces album and two more great new Kat songs. Yesterday, I went to Nectar’s and saw Sue Minter, Peter Welch, Pat Leahy, and Al Franken. Al was very serious and very funny and really wants us to go out and vote. Before and after the speeches was a tremendous show of music from Bob Wagner and friends. Here is a song from Bob’s other non indomitable band to give you a hint about what they sounded like yesterday.

17.) Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? – Book ‘Em Blues Band
18.) The Light – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Another great new Kat Wright song. Yes, Bob really is that great of a guitar player. Tuesday is election day and there is a show at Nectar’s that night so everyone can go out and party and not have to be alone, whichever way it works out. Here are a few of the bans that will be here.

19.) The Magic Robot – James Kochalka
20.) Hermaphroditus – Rue M.
21.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
22.) Oh Dirty Blondes – Dirty Blondes

If you are looking for music next Tuesday check out The Dirty Blondes Present: Exit Poll 2016 at Nectar’s. With those fun bands, and more, it’s going to be a great show. This next song has been running through my head all week. I hope you enjoy it.

23.) Black, Blue and White – The New Siberians
24.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
25.) Sleepwalker – 1881

That song has been running through my head a lot lately too. Great song from Elephants. Our Earth is not random, it’s the only one we’ve got, so let’s do all that we can to take care of it, and us by default. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? See ya, ta ta, farewell….

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
13th Star – Fish
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
Hand Of Doom – Black Sabbath
Sat In Your Lap – Kate Bush
Cascade – Andriana Chobot
What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music

Last night’s local music radio sow on WBKM 107.1FM went as follows:

Song before: Strange Phenomena – Kate Bush

intro

From our small city to the great big word, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last week I saw a ton of great new music at the Eat More Kale Festival and want to highlight as much of that music as I could track down. I wish I had found more, but did find some treasures like this song:

1.) Not I – Andriana Chobot
2.) Here Comes The Sun – Aaron Flinn
3.) One From Two – Linda Bassick
4.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue

I had a great time seeing Cricket in City Hall Park in Burlington on Friday and loved their version of that song. I don’t have any music by Steady Betty to play, so I thought I’d toss in one of Linda’s songs, since she writes some of the Betty songs. Aaron played a great version of Sun at the kale festival. Andriana was amazing at the kale festival and I love all of her songs, especially that one. OK, let’s play the next song on Giant Places, the album I am playing all the way through, one song per week, until the album is through.

5.) Gone With Eraser – Lendway
6.) Better Off – Haley Jane and the primates
7.) Piano In Every Room – gneiss
8.) Soul Piggy Bank – SWALE

Last week after I played Piano I though ti would mix nicely into Piggy. I think that went quite well. Haley and the band put on an amazing show at the kale fest. I can’t wait for their new album which just got funded through Kickstarter. Hmmm, Lendway. This next band put on an amazing show at the kale festival and their upcoming album is going to be a huge step forward and I can barely wait.

9.) Let’s Move – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
10.) Strings – Binger
11.) Friends Share Lovers – And The Kids
12.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Their new album Blue Heart Attack is easily one of the best albums of the year so far. They will be playing every Wednesday at Nectar’s and I want to catch some of those shows. ATK are at ArtsRiot on Saturday and I hope to be there. I’ve been lucky enough to catch Binger a couple of times lately, including the kale festival, They always seem to play a ripping version of Strings. I cant wait to see Kat Wright and the band play at the waterfront for the July 3rd celebration. They were so stunning at the kale festival. OK, this next singer is playing Nectar’s on Friday.

13.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
14.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
15.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
16.) Stop – REDadmiral

I really wanted to see Admiral release their album Tuesday at Nectar;s but was ill and could not make it. Next time! I just love that old Dirtminers song. Bob is such a wonderful guy and a serious talent in our music scene. That’s a cover and as far as I am concerned, the can play covers or originals or whatever he wants, as long has he keeps playing. He is tremendously talented. Great song from Abbie Gail. OK, let’s keep rocking and then kick up the pace a lot.

17.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
18.) Stick That In Your Juicebox And Sip It – Better Things
19.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service

Doom and Better were set to play Thursday night at The Monkey House but I later heard that Doom had to drop out. I hope everything is well. BT are just a great band and always worth checking out. Waylon are such a classic local band. OK, I’m feeling a bit off and the voice is fading so let’s close tonight with a super long super heavy magnificent piece of art.

20.) Pastoral – Vultures of Cult

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Ta ta. Farewell. See Ya….

21.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after: Sunsets On Empire – Fish
Hinterland – TILT
Block – The Church Band

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Despite a super warm December, winter has pretty much set in. Let’s begin with some local songs about the cold time of year.

1.) Winter – Dave Jarvis
2.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No
3.) Stylus Of Id – Somah
4.) Northern Memory – The Cush

Such great cold imagery from the Texas band who spent many winters playing lovely music for us. Thanks Cush!! Stylus is all about Orion who appears in the sky in winter. That sled that you got for Christmas, but couldn’t use at the time, well now there is lots of snow and cold, so have at it. Nice song from Dave. It’s a bit of a mellow evening in Burlington, so let’s go with that vibe for a bit.

5.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
6.) The Night Syd Barrett Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
7.) Eve & Adam – Cricket Blue
8.) Afterlife – Hana Zara

Great song from Hana about living in the space between two lives. Great song from Cricket who are playing shows all over. I love all the local references in Syd. Super strong song from Maryse Smith. Let’s keep the mellow but strong vibe going for a bit.

9.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
10.) New York My Lovely – Joshua Glass Music
11.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
12.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Such a great song from Kat Wright and the band. Hopefully they will have new music soon. Nice cover done by a killer guitar player and a driving force behind Dark Side of the Mountain, who are playing in Stowe soon. If you like the Josh song check out his band Sammich. Great song from Jeremy Gilchrist. Tomorrow night at Radio Bean Barbacoa will be the backing band for a bunch of local artists playing David Bowie songs. I don’t know if anyone in this next band will be part of it, but they did release this song this week.

13.) Starman – Madaila
14.) Freak Out Friday – Rue Mevlana
15.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
16.) Melt – Chin Ho

Nice cover song from Ho. I thought it would be fun to bookend that set with the covers and stick a couple of new and old classics in between. This next set is for the optimists of the world.

17.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians
18.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
19.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
20.) In The Garden Of Mystic Lovers – Francis Dunnery

Francis is from Scotland but he lived in Vermont for a while around the time he released the album Man. He played Mystic and other song from the album often at Club Metronome. I just love the sentiment from Binger, and the rock. Great words from Bill and Bernie. OK, let’s take a swing through some ’90’s classics.

21.) On My Way – Hover
22.) Finder – Madelines
23.) Bloodboy – Envy
24.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail

Absolute classic from Wail. Great rocker from Envy. Finder is such a fun song with a great riff. I just love the Hover song. This next song is one that has always spoken to me. This is one of the coolest bands to ever play JP’s.

25.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week. I’ll say goodbye with the next song on Red Flannel Hash.

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s going to be a bit of a short show, since the WBKM birthday party starts at Nectar’s at 9:30 and my show runs 9-11. I’m going to hang out for 30 minutes or so, then play some music from last years party. I had a great time last Saturday at the Radio Bean birthday party, where 80 or so bands played. I caught a lot and had a great time. Let’s begin with one of the bands who played a killer set in the afternoon.

1.) Waiting For You – Swale
2.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
3.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
4.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith

Maryse played a killer set at the party. I did not make it late enough to see Kat and the soul band, but did catch a fantastic set with a woman named Maggie and Kat Wright and Bob Wagner. That’s a new song from Bob that he just sent me. Thanks Bob!! Hmmmm, Swale. OK, let’s continue on through No Need To Beg. There are just a couple of more songs to play until I get to choose another album to play all the way through.

5.) Flicker (Song For Clara) – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
7.) Amble Down – Crater Lake
8.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains
9.) Hit – Blue Button

I missed BB’s set at Radio Bean, but did catch them with Aspero Siacos and Heavy Plains at Finnegan’s the night before. Killer show. There was an article on Noisey about the local music scene that talked about local bands with links to listen to their music. The only one I did not know was Crater Lake so I thought I should check them out. Pretty good stuff. Colin played a great version of Syd at the Bean birthday party. Lovely song from Phil Yates and the band. OK, I’m going to head over to the party. I think Joe Moore is on soon, or now. Here is some music from last year’s party. The first few will be rock songs from Bob Wagner and the Book ‘Em Blues Band. When it starts sounding like Neil Young, that will be Seth Yacovone Band playing as Real Old and Insane Donkey. See you next week.

10.) Intro/Have You Ever Loved A Woman – Book ‘Em Blues Band
11.) Crossroads – Book ‘Em Blues Band
12.) Little Wing – Book ‘Em Blues Band
13.) Bamboozled By Love – Book ‘Em Blues Band
14.) Rocking In The Free World – Real Old and Insane Donkey
15.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Real Old and Insane Donkey
16.) Powderfinger – Real Old and Insane Donkey
17.) Down By The River – Real Old and Insane Donkey
18.) Like A Hurricane – Real Old and Insane Donkey
19.) Hey Hey, My My – Real Old and Insane Donkey
20.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit (since when after Joe’s set I popped back to the station and noticed that the players had shortened the time and the show was going to end early)
