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

Question – Fish
Small Town Bringdown – The Tragically Hip
In The Garden – The New Siberians

Swale 016

 

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
outro

Songs after:
Crucifix Corner (live) – Fish
Fractured Mirror – Ace Frehley

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM can be heard from our Facebook page link, or over the air. It will run from 9-11pm this evening and will go as follows:

Song before: No Plan – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking the wonderful Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. With the upcoming change in Presidents a lot of us are feeling anxiety. Hopefully, tonight’s show will confront that anxiety and help steel our nerves for what is to come.

1.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
2.) I know Right – The Mountain Says No
3.) Six Month Winter – Suburban Samurai
4.) Lion Tamer – Carraway

Now that the lions will soon be in charge we are all going to need to learn to become lion tamers, in a loving caring way. Great new song from Suburban. They played at The Monkey House last night. That’s a great new song from Mountain from their upcoming album Golden Landfill. That’s an early mix but sounds so cool. Great song from Grand. OK, let’s play the next song on Shovel Down, the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week.

5.) The Violent Strain Of My Broken Heart – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) The Mime – Joe Adler
7.) The Road – Anders Parker
8.) Machu Picchu – The Mountain Says No

Wow, they really had to climb the heights to create that one. Thanks Mountain! Anders played an amazing show at ArtsRiot last Friday. His version of that song was stunning. It’s pretty great on album too. Joe played at Radio Bean a week ago Monday and reminded me how great that song is. Great song from Seth. OK, with lots of fake news about and an incoming President who speaks in vague generalities and when he does cite facts, is usually wrong, it’s pretty scary and makes this song sound appropriate.

9.) Barbie’s Plastic Army – REDadmiral
10.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
11.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) Get Out Of Your Own Way – Kelly Ravin

Great song from Kelly’s new Bonneville album. He and his band the Welterweights opened for Anders last Friday. Doubtfire played at the Monkey last night. Rabbit nicely sing about the countdown to meltdown. Sadly appropriate song from Admiral. OK, here’s another Anders song. He wrote it about the W Bush years but is seems it will be appropriate again soon.

13.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
14.) You Say You’re Alive – The Mountain Says No
15.) Devil’s Right Hand – Swillbillie
16.) 8 Long Years – 1881

Great new song from 1881’s Action EP. Hopefully, it will be four. Swillbillie will play at Nectar’s on Saturday. Another stunning new Mountain song. What a great rocker from Anders. OK, let’s play another new Mountain song. I’ve been waiting a long time to be able to play this one.

17.) Glazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
18.) Waterlanding – SWALE
19.) American Proxy – The Hero Cycle
20.) The Possibility Shop – The Red Telephone

No matter what happens in the next few years, there will be tons of possibilities. Let’s consciously make decisions to try and make choices that are good for us and our communities at all times. Great song from Hero. Swale are playing with a ton of other local bands at The Monkey House tomorrow. Everyone is playing country songs so that should be fun. I love that Mountain song. OK, as we stand at the abyss of a new administration this song seems appropriate.

21.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
22.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
23.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
24.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC

That is a great song about lashing out at an idea that seems to be coming back into power. Great song from Francis about standing up to racism. Sadly still appropriate song from Death. Breaks are playing at Foam Brewers tomorrow. This song is about fighting for the American Dream.

25.) American Dream – Doll Fight
26.) Upstream – The New Siberians
27.) Back Home – Eastern Mountain Time
28.) Babies To War – Milton Busker

Great song from Milton. Yes, let’s not send our babies to war anymore. He and his band The Grim Work played at Light Club Lamp Shop last weekend. Eastern are at the Monkey tomorrow. That’s a great new song from them. Great songs from Siberians and Doll. 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. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring us here at WBKM. There are a ton of bands playing around tonight and over the weekend. Let’s begin with a singer who is playing a show at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe on Saturday.

1.) Le Blues – Francesca Blanchard
2.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
3.) Mon Ange – Francesca Blanchard

Francesca will also play on Tuesday at Signal Kitchen so there are lots of ways to experience her music this week. This next singer will return to Radio Bean on Sunday.

4.) Vulture – Rorie Kelly
5.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Sunbeam – Split Tongue Crow
7.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music

10.) Arkansas Sheriff – Lake Superior

12.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker
13.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains
14.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
15.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide

Death played a show that was live on Facebook earlier today. They just played DC with Francis. This song makes me think of the debate on Monday where there was a Presidential candidate and some guy who kept saying look at me. Please choose wisely when voting. Francis played at Higher Ground tonight. Plains were at The Monkey House tonight. I should have been at all of those shows, and doing this radio show. That Milton song seemed a little appropriate tonight. This next band are at Foam Brewers tomorrow.

18.) Round Sum – Cave Bees

22.) Dora Marr – Queen Tangerine
23.) Star – The New Siberians
24.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin

Great songs from Alice and a cool song from the Siberians first album. Rue will be playing the election night party in November. This next singer just posted a cool old video from 1991. We rocked a lot back then too.

25.) Naked Garden – Peg Tassey MUSIC
26.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
27.) Way Down Hadestown – Anais Mitchell

intro

From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a lovely night in town and with a couple of outdoor shows happening there is literally music in the air. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring WBKM.ORG and for all of the great music they bring to town, such as the Milk Carton Kids show happening next Wednesday. This first artist played a cool show at Light Club Lamp Shop on Tuesday and just released a new album called You Are What You Pretend To Be,

1.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker
2.) I’d Hate To Be Me – Queen Tangerine
3.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
4.) Dogs At The Cafe – Milton Busker

I just had to bookend the set with those two similar songs from Milton’s new album. That is another great song from Andriana’s Cascade EP. Great song from the Austin sisters post Zola Turn band. OK, let’s play the next song on Giant Places.

5.) Gunslinger – Lendway
6.) Sometime Next Week – 1881
7.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
8.) Jenny – Villanelles

Villanelles played a killer show last night at Nectar’s and opened with that song. Phil and the band just finished up a tour and will play Saturday at The Monkey House. 1881 will be there too, so I will finally get to see them. Hmmmm, Lendway. This next band opened for Villanelles last night.

9.) Cancer – SWALE
10.) Piano In Every Room – gneiss
11.) Into The Light – Great Western
12.) Popular Crowd – Swale

They were so great last night and I can’t wait for some of their new songs to get recorded. Great song from Western. I swear I will play some other Gneiss songs but I just love that one so much I keep wanting to play it. Swale played a nice version of Cancer last night. Next Wednesday Villanelles will have Dino Bravo and The Mountain Says No open the show. This is the song that closed out last night.

13.) Kiss My Grits – Villanelles
14.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
15.) The Bomb – The Mountain Says No
16.) It Won’t Stop – Phantom Suns

It was cool to hang out with Ryan Cohen and Jedd Kettler last Saturday after Mountain played at Manhattan Pizza and Pub. Ryan records bands and plays in Phantom. Mountain played a killer version of Bomb last week. I can’t wait for next Wednesday. Bravo always rock. Another cool show that is happening Saturday is at 242 Main and is the 20th anniversary of Big Heavy World. I want to thank James Lockridge for all that he has done for our music community. This is one of the bands that will play at that show.

17.) Thanks For The Memories – Mr. Doubtfire
18.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
19.) You Are What You Think – Death World Wide
20.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes

It’s always nice to take a walk around the streets of Burlington with the Blondes and some of their favorite beverages. That was a song from Death’s new album N.E.W. and it rocks nicely. Doom are playing Sunday at Finnegan’s. I only saw this next band a couple of times but I do miss them.

21.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
22.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
23.) Imaginary – Envy
24.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS

26.) The Territory – Hana Zara
27.) Artroom Records – Jenn Karson

intro

From our – hey why are the meters not showing anything. Aargh

1.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Sorry for the mic not working at the beginning. I guess you really know that I’m live. It’s beautiful in Vermont right now but it’s really hot and time to head to the beach.

2.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
3.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
4.) Say It – Anachronist

I just love that song from the central Vermont band. I chatted with Winfield Holt from 1881 in the window of the show at Nectar’s last night and really want to catch his band soon. I remember seeing Blotto at Hunt’s a couple of times a long time ago. OK, here is the next song on Giant Places, the album I am playing through song by song, week after week, until the album is done.

5.) Summer Falls – Lendway
6.) Gray Goo – Villanelles
7.) Sunshine – Apartment 3
8.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids

Kids played a great show at ArtsRiot last Saturday. Apartment 3 played the show and they were pretty awesome too. Villanelles are playing every Wednesday in July at Nectar’s. They played a great show last night with Invisible Homes. Next week Swale share the bill, so that will be great too. On July 28th the legendary Envy will reunite for a show at The Monkey House. It’s time to start getting excited.

9.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
10.) Summer Song – Wide Wail
11.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
12.) Another Life Ago – The Cush

I still remember the first night I saw the Cush at Club Metronome several years ago. Jet played some great shows in the ’90’s and it was great to hear music diversify in so many ways. Now, you can hear almost any kind of music in Burlington. That was a nice mellow song from WW, another classic ’90’s band. OK, let’s keep rocking. This next band play tomorrow night at Manhattan Pizza and Pub.

13.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
14.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
15.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn
16.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner

There’s always something on the radio when you listen to WBKM. You can hear great songs like Dead Summer. Real is another classic from the ’90’s when Zola played a ton of great shows. Death began in Detroit, then they moved to VT and became Lambsbread and now they are rocking as Death again. I loved the show they played at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts last year. Hmmm, Mountain. This next band played a great show last night at Nectar’s and this is one of my favorite songs.

17.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
18.) Sun Dipped Orphans and the Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland
19.) The Summer Of Andy – Cancer Conspiracy

CC were another great band from the ’90’s. That’s a new song from Elephants who are putting out some tremendous music. Homes did a great version of Frequency last night. OK, let’s change things up a little bit.

20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait
21.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
22.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
23.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue

Cricket are playing at Main St Landing tomorrow and Radio Bean next Tuesday. Both Andriana and Binger played great sets at the Eat More Kale Festival a couple of weeks ago. Nice descriptions of VT by Portrait. This next singer is touring out west soon.

24.) Save A Different Way – Francesca Blanchard
25.) Beats Me – Satori Bob
26.) Glover Tonight – Chin Ho

Such a VT classic from Chin Ho. John Baumann used to play around as Satori but is now hanging out making music in OR. Great song from Francesca. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had a fun time doing my local music radio show last night on 107.1FM and on the internet at WBKM.ORG. It’s just amazing how much great music we have in this town.

Song before: On The Air – Peter Gabriel

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last night I got a chance to go to WRUV and hang out while the Nancy Druids played live in the studio on their local music show Exposure. The Druids don’t have anything recorded yet, so let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean’s former band, and that will give you a hint of what they sound like.

1.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
2.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
3.) The Next Instead – Swale

I love the sweep of the Swale song. They will play a fun show next week, but more on that later. The High Breaks play fun and intense surf rock, and recently rearranged several Black Sabbath songs into surf versions. They released them all for free on Bandcamp so I had to play one of the songs. Great song from Telephone. OK, it’s time for the next song on the Bernie Sanders EP that I am working my way through, song after song, week after week until I’ve played it all.

4.) Where Have All The Flowers Gone – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont artists
5.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
6.) Dreaming Too Much – Alpenglow
7.) Break – Slingshot Dakota

That is the title song from Slingshot’s brand new album. They are from PA but come to town to play on a regular basis. They will be at the Monkey House May 10th, Another great new song from Alpenglow’s new album Callisto. Cricket have shows coming up in March and April all around New England. I think they have new music coming soon too. So, a week from Saturday, there is a show at Higher Ground to show a movie that was recently made about ’90’s rock band The Pants. They will show the movie, ‘High Water Mark, The Rise And Fall Of The Pants” then Swale will be the house band and lots of local musicians will come up to play Pants songs. Here’s a few that will join in.

8.) High Water Mark – The Pants
9.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail
10.) Satellite – Guster
11.) Hit – Blue Button

Jason Cooley and Eric Olsen from BB will be at the show. Ryan Miller from Guster will be at the show. Amanda Gustafson from Wide Wail will be at the show, and Tom Lawson from the Pants will be at the show. I’m sure lots of others will be there as well. OK, the Surf Sabbath song was so fun, let’s play another.

12.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
13.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink Or Swim
14.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death

I was watching Vinyl last week and it was so cool when Politicians played. I thought it would be fun to pull it out this week. Great song from local rockers Swim. The Surf versions of Sabbath songs are so fun. Here’s a song I’ve always enjoyed.

15.) 1965 – The New Siberians
16.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) The Bomb – The Mountain Says No

Great song from Mountain. Finder is a classic from the ’90’s. Aaron is such a great guitar player and songwriter. The Siberians song just rocks. OK, let’s play another new Slingshot song.

19.) Monocacy – Slingshot Dakota
20.) The Call – Swillbillie
21.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz

Tight always gets me dancing around the studio. I hope you had fun with it too. Great strong song from Swillbillie. I love everything about that Slingshot song. This next song is a new one that has been getting me going lately.

22.) If I Knew – Binger
23.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
24.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists.

Such a lovely version of that song from some of the area’s finest musicians. I love the lyric in the Bern song. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
