Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm June 15th and can be heard on 107.1FM or from the Facebook page of WBKM and will go as follows,

Song before: I Don’t Remember – Peter Gabriel

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week of warm and hot sunny days so let’s head to the beach.

1.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
2.) A Walk On Ballard Beach – The High Breaks
3.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
4.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
5.) Lovely Day – gneiss

It’s been so nice to have so many lovely days lately. Gneiss are at Red Square tonight. There has been lots of blue sky lately and Rabbit sing such a cool song about it. They played a great show last Friday at The Monkey House. I remember seeing Blotto a couple of times at Hunts a long time ago. Great song from the Breaks. Now that Phil has taken the Affiliates joke to Chicago, it’s time for us to embrace the Ray Fork joke. OK, let’s play the next song on Camera.

6.) Shortcuts – 1881
7.) Miranda – Ninja Custodian
8.) Voodoo Camaro – Wide Wail
9.) Windows down – Lendway

It’s the perfect time to drive around with the windows down, perhaps in a magical camero. Classic song from Ninja. I’m working my way through the set of EP’s from 1881 called Lights, Camera, and Action song by song, week by week. OK, last Saturday I joined the Friends of Jim’s Basement and saw these next four bands.

10.) Winnebago – Ellen Degenerates
11.) Goner – REDadmiral
12.) Shark – Greaseface
13.) Fruity Pebbles (Legend Of The Samurai) – Shred Flintstone
14.) Cross Country – Steven Wright

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at WBKM and for bringing Mr Wright to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts tomorrow, and for all of the other great music they bring to our community all the time. Great song from the New Jersey band with such a great name. Flintstone rocked hard in Jim’s basement last week. Greaseface also put on a brilliant show that night. Admiral have stripped down to more of a acoustic band and were cool last Saturday too. Ellen closed that show nicely. OK, let’s play another Burlington classic.

15.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
16.) Fly On The Wall – Zola Turn
17.) Heartbreak Baby – Villanelles
18.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica

Great song from Vetica. Heartbreak rocks hard. Same for Zola. Such a fun song from Zoot. OK, let’s go out for a ride.

19.) Freeway – Totally Submerged
20.) The Mime – Joe Adler
21.) I Am A Hatchet – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
22.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Such a great song from David. It’s sad to see Phil Yates move to Chicago but at least he and the band played a blistering show at the Monkey House last Friday. I’m sure we will see him again. Joe’s been playing around lately in his new band a.m. rejoice which I seem to keep missing. It’s hard to miss Submerged since they play all around Vermont all the time. OK, let’s keep up the theme with a song about the ocean.

23.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
24.) Sober – Vedora
25.) In The Rain – Plan B

Plan are a classic Burlington band from the ’80’s. I love how huge that song is. I always loved it when Vedora played Sober and Matt went way off on guitar. Hmmm, song about the ocean. Hmmmm. OK, there’s not much time left so let’s keep rocking.

26.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
27.) Something I Drew – farm
28.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Great rocker from Seth Yacovone and the guys. Classic song from Farm who played in the 2000’s. Great rocker from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Songs after:

Sunsets On Empire – Fish
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
La Villa Strangiato (live) – RUSH

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm Thursday May 11, and will go as follows:

Song before: Bel-Air – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Spring is in full bloom and the leaves are coming out and it’s almost time for the lilacs. Tomorrow is my birthday so tonight I will just play a bunch of my favorite songs. If your band is not in the list I still love your songs but I just grabbed two hours of songs that fill my heart. I’m sure I could have done a twelve hour show and still missed a lot of greatness. Let’s begin with a woman with a huge heart and powerful voice.

1.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Liar – Maryse Smith
3.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara
4.) Presence – Satori Bob

Satori have a new album that I will dig into next week, but Presence has spoken to me continuously since the first time I heard it 25 or so years ago. Hana’s songs are entrancing and each one is a ride to go on. She is so great. It was nice to see Maryse briefly at Waking Windows last weekend. Peg is so fantastic. OK, last week I played the last song on Kat Wright’s By My Side album, so it’s time to start a new one. Last year this next band put out three EP’s that really feel like one album. Here is the first song from Light’s, Camera, and Acton.

5.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
6.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper
7.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
8.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot

I’ve been captivated by Andriana’s music since I first heard it last year. I love everything about that Carraway song. It’ll Be OK has been stuck in my head for the past few weeks. Great song from 1881. Here is another great song.

9.) Piano In Every Room – gneiss
10.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
11.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
12.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

I just love everything about that song. Loose was recorded live at Robot Dog Studio by Ryan Cohen. I love how it rocks so hard. Aaron has a ton of great songs and that one just had to find it’s way into this mix. I love it when there is music everywhere and a piano in every room. This next song has been stuck in my head lately too.

13.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
14.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
15.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
16.) I-90 East – ROUGH FRANCIS

I love all of Francis’ songs but there is something about that one that made it jump out at me. So, last Friday I was quickly walking down Riverside ave when a car pulled over and said Tim, get in. Thanks for the ride to Waking Windows Urian Hackney and Julian Hackney!! Politicians is a great song and I loved seeing them at the Flynn not so long ago. Earthquakes is one of my many absolute favorites. Monica, always! Every time I catch this next band I just love them.

17.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
18.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
19.) Every Last One Of Us – SWALE
20.) The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian

That version of the Blue Oyster Cult song is so fantastic. Swale were great at Waking Windows and played a stunning version of that song. It was so wonderful to finally see the Cush again at Waking Windows. They played a stunning version of that song. Hmmm, Windigo. The first time I heard this next song it sent shivers down my spine. It still does.

21.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
22.) Black, Blue, and White – The New Siberians
23.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
24.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I love a lot of Elephant’s music but that one always stands out. I love the Druids so much! There are many great songs from the Siberians but that one just seemed to fit the set. Hmmm, mountain. OK, this next band always rock.

25.) Burning Bridges – Blue Button
26.) Papertrain – Dave Jarvis (Daffy Mal Yinkleyank)
27.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
28.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker

That is such a great song from Anders. I love a lot of Binger songs but always keep coming back to that one. Great song from Dave. His band Agent 802 are starting to play shows. Button always rock hard. I hope you were OK with indulging me on the day before my birthday. Next week I will play lots of new music and take some chances but tonight I just wanted to hear some favorites. See you next week.

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

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.

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

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?

18.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians
19.) Sun-Dripped Orphan And The Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland

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.

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?

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

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.

OK, let’s keep rocking.

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

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

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?
