Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM in the Champlain Valley, also streaming at our website, will go as follows:

Song before: Soul Eternal – Anderson Ponty Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington, but something unusual happened late Monday night. A meteor with a blue trail sailed over Vermont and could be seen all around New England. Let’s begin with a brand new song that speaks of meteors.

1.) Oysters – Jane Boxall Percussion with Miriam Bernardo
2.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker
3.) Spirit Won’t Fall Down – Rachel Brown
4.) Sharktopus – Villanelles

That’s a cool new song from Villanelles cool new album Blue Heart Attack. Spirit is a song from Burlington’s ’90’s and I still remember seeing Rachel and how powerful her voice is. Great song from Milton who is at Light Club Lamp shop tonight at 8pm. Jane just put out a new album called Field Notes. Miriam’s voice just makes that song. OK, it’s time for the next song on Callisto.

5.) Look Ahead – Alpenglow
6.) Too Much – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Hallelujah – Dirty Blondes
8.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

That’s a brand new song from the brand new Elephants album The Perfect Map. I had a great time seeing the Blondes at Nectar’s on Monday and while listening, I knew I wanted to play that one for you. Great new song from Slingshot. Their new album Break is still keeping me listening to it. Great new song from Alpenglow. This next band are at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow.

9.) Edible – SWALE
10.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
11.) Finder – Madelines
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons filled a rock void in the early 200’s and played some killer shows. Finder is a classic from the ’90’s. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell from Envy are playing in their new band The Nancy Druids at Radio Bean on Friday at 10pm. I really enjoyed seeing this next band a little over a week ago at The Monkey House

13.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
14.) Say It – Anachronist
15.) Speed Car – Torpedo Rodeo
16.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath

SS are really The High Breaks when they play Sabbath covers. They did such a great job rearranging the songs into a surf style. I saw Torpedo a few times in the early 00’s and always had a rocking time. I love Say It!! Better should have lots of cool new music coming soon. OK, let’s go back to the ’80’s. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to go.

17.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
18.) Melt – Chin Ho
19.) East Jabib – REDadmiral
20.) The Summer Of Andy – Cancer Conspiracy

CC played some great music back in the ’90’s. That’s a pretty new song from Admiral. They are playing Sunday at Radio Bean. I played Chin Ho’s cover as an homage to the ’80’s Ladies who have the show before me on Thursday nights at 7pm on WBKM. That song from the Decentz always gets me moving. A former local musician and music writer who has been working at the Future Of Music Coalition, Casey Merlin Rae, has just moved on to a job with SiriusXM. Congratulations. Here is one of his solo songs.

21.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian
22.) Another Life Ago – The Cush
23.) Before The Evenings Thru – THE VACANT LOTS

The lots used to play around in the early 10’s but are now touring the US and touring the world. Great song from the Cush’s first album. They played that song many times in Burlington. Yea Casey! This next song is pretty new and catchy as can be.

24.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
25.) Random Earth – Elephants Of Scotland
26.) For Buddy – Elephants Of Scotland

Those are the two last songs on Elephant’s new album The Perfect Map. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a crisp Autumn night, it’s cold if you are standing, but not bad if you are moving. This week a wonderful local musician named Samara Lark Brown lost her mom. Please send her lots of loving energy as she spends time with her family. It seems like there have been lots of sad events lately, and wonderful events lately. We are spirits condensed and incarnated for a finite amount of time. As you go through joy and pain, be sure to not bottle it up. Feel it and let it out, so your friends and family can help you. The healing process seems to have times of pain and times that are more bearable. This first song deals with the waves of emotion that keep on coming. This is In Waves by Sarah Blacker on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) In Waves – Sarah Blacker
2.) Like Beads – Anachronist
3.) 1.21 Jigawatts – Wave of the Future
4.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler

That beautiful song goes out to Samara. That’s her singing and Johnnie Day Durand on saw. It was so great seeing Joe and Johnnie at Radio Bean on Tuesday. Samara also sings with Wave, who may have a show coming up in the near future. What a stunning song by Anachronist! Nicely explained Sarah. OK, let’s play the next song from No Need To Beg.

5.) I Am A Hatchet – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) You’re Safe With Us – Lendway
7.) Powder – The New Siberians
8.) How Sweet It Is – Linda Bassick

Another great song from Linda Bassick‘s Friday Morning Sing Along album. Great song from the Siberians first album. Can’t wait for the next one. Lovely song from Lendway. I saw 3 of the guys at Metal Monday at Club Metronome playing surf rock as The High Breaks. It was a great rocking set. One of Phil’s affiliates, Raph Worrick is playing with Jane Boxall Percussion at Light Club Lamp Shop Saturday under the name Bad Smell. Jeremy Gilchrist is also playing that night, so it should be fun. OK, it’s late on a Thursday and almost Friday. Does anyone want to come and freak out with me?

9.) Freak Out Friday – Rue Mevlana
10.) Galactic Cannibalism – Wobblesauce
11.) Trans Am – Barbacoa
12.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains

I was just listening to Plains and that one jumped out and I wanted to play it. Killer rocker from Barbacoa. Wobble played Higher Ground last week and played a killer version of that song. When I played it last Thursday I could just hear it coming out of Friday. They mixed as well as I hoped. This next band have a new song on the Endless Bummer compilation.

13.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
14.) Time To Save The World – Carraway
15.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
16.) Yema – Brave The Vertigo

Killer song from their Oppenheimer Quotes Vishnu EP. One of the guys in the band is part of the Metallica tribute band playing Monday at Metronome. Love that Vetica song. I definitely need to check out Carraway again. Doom are playing next Wednesday at Finnegans with Dino Bravo VT. Let’s go back to the ’90’s with a seasonably appropriate song.

17.) October Days Club – Cancer Conspiracy
18.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees
19.) That’s That Is Is – Ninja Custodian
20.) No More Sex – Pinhead

All of those are classic Burlington songs. I just love this next song and hope you do to.

21.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
22.) Bullet – REDadmirial
23.) Mad Mary Jones – THE VACANT LOTS

The Lots started by playing in town and now play all over the world. Admiral are at Radio Bean tomorrow and I really need to check them out. Particles tour a lot. Check them out if they come to your town. I saw this next band at Metal Monday a couple of days ago and they rocked hard.

24.) Framing The Hell – Vultures of Cult
25.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian

Killer song from Casey Merlin Rae, who used to play in lots of bands in town. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Goodbye. Au Revoir. Arrivederci, Adios.

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
