Song before: Mirror Mirror (Look Into My Eyes) – Def Leppard

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. As a music fan I’m happy to leave myself in the capable hands of the many great musicians out there. I almost never want to offer advice, except for this. Please, record your music and release your records.

1.) Release Your Records – SWALE
2.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
3.) Souvenir – The Depth and the Whisper
4.) The River – Kat Wright

That’s the next wonderful song on By My Side, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song.. Whisper played a lovely show at Radio Bean last Sunday. Classic from Chin and great brand new song from Swale! OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and music by Clever Girls.

5.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
6.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
7.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls

Thanks to Ryan Cohen for recording us and to the band for playing such great versions of those songs and for hanging out and chatting with me. OK, these next two bands will be at The Monkey House on Saturday and I will be out of town on a trip with my mother and brother. Can everyone go in my place?

9.) Time To Save The World – Carraway
10.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
11.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
12.) The Bad Year – Carraway

That’s going to be a great show with those too bands. OK, last Sunday before The Depth And The Whisper I caught one song from the opening band. The bass player for the band performed earlier as a solo act and gave me a CD to check out. It’s pretty cool. Here’s a song.

13.) Clarity – Hello Tortoise
14.) Totally Submerged – Totally Submerged
15.) Hole In The Sky – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
16.) Laughing Jim – The Edd

The Edd have a new album that was released at 4:20 today. Surf played a great version of that last Friday at Foam Brewers. I finally caught up with Submerged at Radio Bean on Monday and they rocked. Cool song from Tortoise. So hey, is it a holiday today?

17.) Grandma Betty’s Goodtime Smokin’ Weed – Brother Zag
18.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians
19.) Sun-Dripped Orphan And The Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland

21.) Break A Leg – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
22.) Poem for Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time and will go as follows.

Song before: Morrigan – Children in Paradise

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve got lots of great new music to play tonight but let’s begin with one of Vermont’s absolute treasures.

1.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
2.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Wooden Heart – SWALE
4.) All Love – Kat Wright

That’s the next song from Kat’s album By My Side that I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. That’s a brand new song from Swale from their upcoming album There’s No One Here. Wow, what a beautiful song, and what about those horns? The Jeremy song was from the interview and recording we did a few weeks back at Robot Dog Studio. Great song by Aaron, who is a great guy, a great singer, a great songwriter and a fantastic guitar player. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful person in our community. Speaking of wonderful people in our community, this next band have been playing around for a while but don’t have anything recorded. We met up last night with Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio and recorded this interview and they played these four songs.

5.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
6.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
7.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
8.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids

I love the songs and the over the top guitar playing and can’t thank Ryan and the Druids enough for playing that. Also, I brought my brother Ken along and he had a great time watching it all happen. OK, let’s play some more rock and roll.

9.) East Jabib – REDadmiral
10.) Ain’t No Sunshine – Kiki’s Lost Nation
11.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
12.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

Great new song from Clever. I love the huge sound of cascade. Kiki come out now and then to rock us hard, and it was cool to see Andriana play that song the other night. Great political rocker from Admiral. OK, let’s keep rocking.

13.) Give Love – 1881
14.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
15.) Sorrow Of The Space Inside – Secret Heliotropes
16.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale

That song is so quiet and so loud and so gentle and so powerful and always blows me away when then play it live. I’m so happy I finally get to play it for you. That’s another cool song from Heliotropes album A Well Lit Room. Great song from Milton and same for 1881. OK, let’s keep rocking.

17.) Journals – Senders
18.) This Ain’t The Summer Of Love – The Contrarian
19.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
20.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

I was listening to Pigs the other day and the imagery of burn and summer of love made me want to play those three together. Great song from Senders. OK, It’s my job to play local music but I just have to cheat now and then. There’s this french prog rock band called Children In Paradise who have been captivating me lately. The singer is about to release her solo album and is starting a crowdfunding campaign on April 1st. Since I play her music before and after my show all the time I thought I’d toss in one of her new songs.

21.) Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
22.) Be Like Ryan – The Mountain Says No
23.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
24.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

David sometimes lives in Vermont and sometimes lives in France so I thought that would be a fun way to bookend that set. Great song from Elephants. It sounds like they have new cool music coming for us soon. If you are near Jeffersonfille on Saturday, go check out Mountain!! Also, feel free to be like Ryan. Great song from Kat. Bonne Chance. OK let’s keep rocking.

25.) Jackbooted Thugs (Get All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
26.) Vicarious – Alice Austin
27.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
28.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn

Another great song from Aaron. Sean Toohey sings and plays guitar for The Nancy Druids and played in Telephone and played with Alice on that song. He and Ann Mindell used to play in Envy. Great song from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Joan Crawford – Blue Oyster Cult

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been another cold and warm and clear and snowy week in Vermont. That does not stop us from doing what we do. I want to dedicate this first song to Rich Haskell and anyone who likes to get in their car and drive, no matter what.

1.) Driving All Alone – Danny LeFrancois
2.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
3.) Silence Kills – Secret Heliotropes
4.) I’ll get Wise – Anachronist

Great song from the central Vermont band. I’d seen Heliotropes listed on show bills but have never seen them. That may have to change. Great songs by David and Danny. OK, last week I finished the last song on Shovel Down so now I need to play a new album, song after song, week after week until it’s done. Let’s begin with the title song from the new album by Kat Wright Official

5.) By My Side – Kat Wright
6.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music
7.) Secret – Madaila
8.) Freak Out Friday – Rue M.

Rue pop up now and then to help us dance dramatically. Great song from Madaila. Myra is a true treasure. So are Kat and the band, as you will hear over the next several weeks. OK, let’s keep the flow going.

9.) Unveiled – Pours
10.) Strings – Binger
11.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
12.) The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian

Casey Merlin Rae used to sing in bands and write about music in town and was just back a couple of weeks ago to sing for the Rocketsled reunion. He was good friends with Sandy Pearlman and just put out an album of Blue Oyster Cult covers. That was one of them. Great new song from Mountain from the upcoming Golden Landfill album. Great songs from Binger and Pours. Since I just played a cover song, I think I will continue for the next set.

13.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
14.) Breathe – Ninja Custodian
15.) Is It My Body? – Peg Tassey MUSIC
16.) ETI (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) – The Contrarian

I just had to play another Contrarian song. Classic cover of the Alice Cooper song by Peg. Ninja always did some fun covers. That’s a great take on Pink Floyd. Great cover of the Rolling Stones song by Bridget. So, The Snaz just released a new album called Sensitive Man.

17.) Spit N’ Fluff – The Snaz
18.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
19.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
20.) This Ain’t The Summer Of Love – The Contrarian.

The Francis song has the line about I thought it was the summer of love so I had to play another Contrarian song. Francis will play Higher Ground tomorrow and Blue Button will open. Snaz played there last week. Thanks HG for sponsoring us at WBKM.ORG. This next band are from Montreal but will return to The Monkey House on Sunday.

21.) Epic – Laureate
22.) Room To Grow – The Red Summer Sun
23.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
24.) Rejected – Black Rabbit

The last time I saw Laureate Rabbit opened the show. Doom and Red Summer are playing with them on Sunday. OK, let’s go back to the 1990’s.

25.) Sunflower Street – David Jarvis
26.) Who Do You Love? – The Red Newts
27.) Angela Carter – Cricket Blue
28.) God On Our Side – Wire Train

Back in the early ’80’s Wire Train came and played Hunt’s a few times and I had a great time seeing them. That’s a great cover of the Dylan song. Cricket are just so amazing. I should have played an original Newts song but thought that was fun, and I’m playing covers anyway. They are at Sidebar tonight. Great song from Dave. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: The Last Of The Unplucked Gems – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring our station and for reuniting Rocketsled for a show on Saturday. Today is a historic day and tomorrow will be our first day with a new President. I hope this opening set fits our mood.

1.) Whole World Hangs – Anachronist
2.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
3.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
4.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

That’s a great song about protesting. We will likely need that a lot in the next few years. I want to send that out to all of the women who will march on Washington DC this weekend. Great song from Anders. Great Woody reference by Homes and great song from Anachronist. OK, here is the next song on Shovel Down.

5.) Mistake – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
7.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
8.) The Circus – Cold Sweat

Sweat used to play at Texas and other clubs around VT and upstate NY. I wanted to play that one in response to the closing of the Ringling Brothers circus. Particles are playing at Manhattan Pizza and Pub on Saturday and always rock. Sean from RT now plays in The Nancy Druids and they were amazing last night at Radio Bean. Great song from Seth. OK, let’s keep rocking.

9.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit

11.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

13.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
14.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
15.) Not Quite As Good – 1881
16.) This Isn’t Your Parade – Crazyhearse

Such a fun song from their Tordadic Beige album. Great new song from 1881’s Action EP. I love the huge sound on both the Carraway and Andriana songs. This next song is from a bunch of wonderful local artists who recorded this song to support the candidacy of Bernie Sanders.

17.) This Land Is Your Land – Various Artists
18.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Artists
19.) Secret – Madaila
20.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright

Great song from Kat and the band. Madaila likely have nothing to do with the band the Medallions who are playing at the oath of action day at The Skinny Pancake Burlington tomorrow but stop in and find out for yourself. Great message from Bernie and all the wonderful artists. OK, let’s rock.

21.) All My Life – Wide Wail
22.) Don’t Turn Back – Kelly Ravin
23.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy

27.) Make It Work – The New Siberians
28.) Tha Critic – Ninja Custodian

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1Fm will run from 9-11pm this evening and will go as follows:

Song before: Goodbye Yellow Brook Road – Elton John

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. We’re on the downhill slide to the Winter Solstice and the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. Let’s begin with a song from Carraway’s brilliant new album The Bad Year.

1.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
2.) I’ll Get Wise – Anachronist
3.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
4.) Windy Pines – Brett Hughes and Kat Wright

Brett has been a huge asset to the local music scene for many years and he is finally going to make is own first album. I think the whole town is celebrating, and we haven’t even heard it yet. Bethany is a woman wise beyond her years. Anachronist just released a beautiful new album called Lost In The Corners. I’m just getting to know it and I really like it. The same is true for Carraway. OK. I was off last week and hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. On the last show I finished playing the last song from the Invisible Homes album Song For My Double. It’s time to play a new album, song after song, week after week, until it’s done. This artist just released this album and he is a legend in this town. The album is Shovel Down by Seth Yacovone.

5.) Playing Patterns – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) Spy Song – Pinhead
8.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No

I thought I’d ease my way into the Christmas music season with that rocker from Mountain. Classic from Pinhead. Great song from David and the band. I’m so psyched to play the new Seth album over the next nine weeks. Last Saturday I went to The Monkey House and saw these next three bands.

9.) The Anchor – Carraway
10.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand
11.) Ex-Files – Better Things
12.) Something I Drew – farm

I remember seeing Farm once, late in their career, possibly for the last time at 242 Main. I miss them but two of the guys are in Mountain Says No now and that is cool. Carraway, Grand and Better Things were all brilliant last Saturday at the Monkey. All of those songs were played. On Saturday it’s the last day of operation for 242 Main. It’s been an iconic music venue for as long as I can remember. It will be missed and hopefully it will reemerge soon. There is a party on Saturday to celebrate it and to celebrate music super fan Gary Lane’s 50th birthday. He has been a great supporter of music for many years. Here are some of the bands playing the last 242 Main show this Saturday.

13.) Year Of The Snake – Tyler Daniel Bean
14.) Black Oil – Doom Service
15.) Green Peaks Dark Valleys – Get A Grip
16.) Death Is Just A Door – Vultures of Cult
17.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS

All those bands, and more, are going to rock 242 one more time on Saturday. It should be a great night. Better Things are playing that show too. I remember one day, a long time ago, when I had some free time and saw on Swale’s website they had a show in the afternoon at 242/ I went and found out it was a rock camp thing. They let me in anyway and I sat quietly as the band played a song then talked to the kids about it and the music business then played another and did that for a while. So many great memories.

18.) Waterlanding – SWALE
19.) I’ve Come To Love – Carraway
20.) The Light – Kat Wright
21.) Moving Song – Zola Turn

I loved Zola so much. Great new song from Kat and the band. Another great new Carraway song. Hmmm, Swale. I know a lot of us are on edge about the election. It feels like we might be heading into the lions den. Fortunately, I know a lion tamer.

22.) Lion Tamer – Carraway
23.) Spark – Anachronist
24.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue
25.) Your Eyes – Forest Gray

Great song from Forest. Cricket were great recently at Light Club Lamp Shop and are at the Skinny Pancake tonight. Great new songs form two great new albums. This next band played a beautiful show at the Daily Planet last night.

26.) She’s Leaving Home – Silver Bridget
27.) Julius Caesar – The New Siberians
28.) The Bad Year – Carraway

Brilliant new epic from Carraway. Great song from the Siberians. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM can be heard over the air on both sides of the Champlain Valley or streamed from the Facebook page link above. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: First We Take Manhattan (live) – Leonard Cohen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They’ve got a huge show with Kat Wright releasing her new album By My Side tomorrow. I want to begin tonight with the many reports of bullying and swastika painting and acts of intimidation that have been happening since the election. We need to investigate every incident and call people out on their mean language and horrible actions. It’s time to look at ourselves as a country and encourage our good nature and step past the darker elements in our soul. It’s time to acknowledge that we’ve got problems.

1.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
3.) Are We Mad? – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
4.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila

We are going to have to remember that we are all in this together and do our part to add positive actions to our community. After all, we all live under the same stars. David Rosane has written some great post election analysis of what’s going on and what can be. He also writes great songs. The Siberians sing about love saving us and we will need to keep that in mind. Great new song from Kat and the band. The story of how that came together is pretty great. OK, here comes the last song from Song For My Double. I’ll be off next week for Thanksgiving and in December I will start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week, until it is done.

5.) No One – Invisible Homes
6.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles
7.) 2000 – The Pants
8.) Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye (live) – Leonard Cohen

A lot of local musicians have been saddened by the death of Leonard. He will be sorely missed but the staggering body of work that he left us can come alive every time someone plays one of his songs or reads one of his poems. There was a beautiful gathering of local artists on Monday at Light Club Lamp Shop and that can happen whenever we want to make it happen again. Kirk Flanagan did a great version of Hey at that show, and he also played one Leon Russel song. Pants were a classic band from Burlington’s ’90’s. Spiders is a modern classic. Great song, and album, from Homes. Here’s another Burlington classic.

9.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya – Pinhead
10.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
11.) Destiny Waits – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds
12.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn

Great song by Aaron. He played a couple of Cohen songs on Monday. Bud Johnson and Budd are so kind and great performers. Zoot used to rock out town in the ’80’s and Pinhead played back then too. Those songs have been around for a while but this next one is brand new.

13.) Waiting – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Blue Light Shine – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

We will all have to shine our loving lights a lot in the next four years. Particles are out and about fighting sexism and rocking our world. Hopefully, Milton’s song will not be as on the mark as it seems like it might be. Great new song from Doubtfire. This next band are at The Monkey House tomorrow. Let’s take a walk around town with Diane Sullivan and Becky.

17.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
18.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
19.) Diamond Days – The Lavas
20.) Undecided – Rocketsled

Rocketsled will get the band back together next January. I loved that one Lavas album. The Decentz played back in the early ’80’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
23.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
24.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil was at the Cohen show too. I love that song by him and the band. Ninja played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s and always rocked the house with that one. I love that Vetica song. Such a classic from Francis. Here’s another classic from the ’90’s.

25.) Poem For Torin (Ethan’s Stoned) – Peg Tassey MUSIC
26.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
27.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass

Great song from Gregory. Jeremy Gilchrist played at the Cohen show and Peg Tassey was there too, but just to listen. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I’m off next week but will be back to do it again soon.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm,org. I played an homage to Dark Side Of The Mountain’s homage to Pink Floyd, and some songs about Bernie Sanders.

Songs before:The Bomb – The Mountain Says No (not chosen by me, it just came up in the queue before the songs I picked.)
Help Wanted – Wide Wail
Song In Space – The Church
Sparks – The Color Exchange
Clash City Rockers – The Clash

recording begins
Song before: Judy Is A Punk – The Ramones

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Former Mayor of Burlington, Bernie Sanders, did pretty well by winning four states on Super Tuesday. It’s so inspiring to see him doing so well in his run for the US Presidency. He is that rare politician who lays our specific plans to make life easier for Americans, so it’s inspiring to hear him speak, but is really inspiring because of his record of accomplishment. He has inspired a lot of citizens and artists and musicians. Here is some music inspired by Bernie Sanders.

1.) I Saw Bernie Sanders At Al’s French Fries – Patrick Heltz
2.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists
3.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
4.) Bernie Is A Punk – Bern Unit

Nice reworking of the Ramones Judy Is A Punk by the California band. Violint is a woman named Emma Sky who used to live in town. I love the references to knowing Bernie personally and the humable Feel The Bern chorus. Lovely song from Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, and the rest of the crew. It was great seeing lots of those musicians on stage with Bernie in Essex on Tuesday night. Great song from Patrick about seeing Bernie about town. Bernie and Al’s are two Burlington classics. Last week I finished the last song from the Black Rabbit album Red Flannel Hash. It’s time to start a new album to play song after song, week after week, until it’s done. Of course, it will be the album that Bernie Sanders recorded back in the 80’s with 30 Vermont musicians.

5.) Oh, Freedom – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Musicians
6.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks
7.) Freeway – David Rosane and the Zookeepers
8.) If I Knew – Binger

I love the vitality of the lyric in the Binger song. The whole set was about people getting along and working together to make a great world. Freeway has that feel, and is a good rocking song. Bill was a preacher on par with none, and one of the funniest people who ever walked the planet. Yea Bernie. So, something cool happened this week. Alpenglow released their first full length album.

9.) Been So Long – Alpenglow
10.) Northern Skies – The Lindbergh Baby
11.) The Blackout – The Static Age
12.) Stop – REDadmiral

Great fun rocker from Admiral. I love the sound and flow of the Static song. I used to work with Scott Broderick and love that song from his band. Hmmm, Alpenglow. So, I saw a cool show last week at the Rusty Nail in Stowe. They ran a school bus from Nectar’s to the show, so I took the ride and saw Dark Side of the Mountain play a stunning Pink Floyd tribute show. This was the encore.

13.) Echoes->Comfortably Numb->Echoes

Because, if you are going to play a 23 minute song for your encore, why not throw in another 7 minute one in the drifty section in the middle. Stunning show. This next artist has been playing her well crafted songs all around.

14.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
15.) Poem For Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey
16.) No Countries – And The Kids
17.) Popular Crowd – Swale

Great rocker from the great band. Kids have been playing a ton of shows all over lately. Go see them if you ever get a chance. That is such an epic song from Peg. Sadly, she just lost her mom. My heart goes out to you Peg! This next band played Metal Mondays last year and blew me away. They came back this Monday and played another great show.

18.) Crystal King – Holy Grail
19.) A Different Machine (live) – Elephants Of Scotland

Killer song from the local prog band who occasionally plays Metal Mondays too. Grail rocked last Monday! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Good bye. See Ya. Ciao.

20.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
