Song before: Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) – Concrete Blonde

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The skies are gray, the air is cold and the leaves are falling from the trees. Summer is gone and Halloween is almost upon us. Usually, Mr E. Ghoul crosses over to join us, but the veil is still too strong, being so many days away. I, alone, will guide you through the terror that is the Vermont music scene. Let’s begin with a song about the dead.

1.) Stardust For Dessert – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
2.) Ghosts Aren’t Free – Ballroom Sofa
3.) Release The Dead – Chin Ho
4.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music

Thank you for reminding us of our mortality Troy. I dug up that ancient song from Chin. Chilling thought from Sofa and beautifully disturbing song from David and the band. OK, let’s get a little magical.

5.) I Put A Spell On You – Kat Wright and Marco Benevento
6.) Devil – farm
7.) A Monster’s Holiday – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
8.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Is there anything scarier than the devil knowing your name? Hmm, apparently the gators prefer to celebrate their monsters. Nice attempt to outrun the devil Farm. That was a lovely spell concocted one night at Radio Bean by the dynamic duo. Here is another song that I found deeply buried.

9.) Vampyre – Dave Jarvis (Hipp Notix)
10.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
11.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
12.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin

Such a scary song from Alice. Hana speaks of how the veil between the living and the dead is understood down south. Terrifying imagery from Sarah and a lovely oldie from Dave. Care to jam with some monsters?

13.) Halloween Jam – The Dead Shakers
14.) Nightmare On Elm Street – Savage Hen
15.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult
16.) Full Moon Dark Places – Bull & Prairie

Vermont is full of dark places, and the shadows of the full moon only make them more terrifying. I fear the Vultures may have gotten too close to their song. Disturbing song from the Hen and a scary stream of monsters for the Dead. Speaking of death.

17.) Death Of A Barn Cat – Dirtminers
18.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
19.) Hell Chicken – Swillbillie
20.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

I hope you survived the terror of being alone, barely safe, wondering what lies beyond the door. Swillbillie are wise to make us aware of the terror wrought by chickens. Halloween was made for cats. OK, it’s time to panic.

21.) Panic – Miku Daza
22.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
23.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
24.) Raising The Dead – Carraway

Lovely song about zombies dancing. Terror filled song by the Claws. Phil sings of the battle between life and death and Miku rightly advises panic. This next soul seems to be trying to give up supernatural ways. Silly human.

25.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
26.) Demon Eyes – Lake Superior
27.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
28.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
29.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

You can always count on a ghost, even if Aaron disagrees. Lovely songs of demons from Crazy and Superior. Even one so contrary understands the power of the grave. Well, I hope you were not too scared listening to the terrifying music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Songs after – Incubus (with graveyard intro and geezabum outro) – Fish
Thugs – The Tragically Hip
Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
Hell Toupee – Derek Smalls
Devil Inside Me – Dam Kat
Angels And Devils – Invisible Homes
Monsters – Cold Sweat
Heaven And Hell – Dio
Angels Of Death – Hawkwind
Killing Ghosts – Better Things
Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
Fear Of The Dark – Iron Maiden
Feel The Thunder – Blue Oyster Cult
War Pigs – Black Sabbath
Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) – David Bowie
Devil Eyes – Jakals
Please Mr Gravedigger – David Bowie
Heavy – Clever Girls
Time To Get Out – Deep Purple.
regular awesome programming

13.) Racers – The New Siberians
14.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
15.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide

17.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
18.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
19.) Full Moon, Dark Places – Bull & Prairie

21.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
22.) Fly On The Wall – Zola Turn
23.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
24.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz

Decentz were so fun back in the ’80’s. Broccoli rocked us in the late ’80’s, Zola in the ’90’s and Ninja straddled that line. This next band will be at SideBar on Sunday.

26.) Bowie’s Heroes (in partial) – Ouzkxqlzn
27.) The Mists – Aram Bedrosian

From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds Of Burlington.

9.) Hole In The Sky – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
10.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
11.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association

14.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright

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

Epitaph (Including March For No Reason/Tomorrow And Tomorrow) – King Crimson

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I got out of work a couple of nights ago and looked up and saw Orion. It’s the sign that winter is here and it always reminds me of this song.

1.) Stylus of Id – Somah
2.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
3.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
4.) East Jabip – REDadmiral

With politics on so many people’s minds lately, Jabip seemed appropriate. It’s the season to rush around like crazy and sometimes it seems like it’s a countdown to meltdown. Thanks for explaining that feeling so well Black Rabbit. The days are getting shorter and shorter so the Carraway song is sounding perfect. Since they first played it back in the ’90’s that song by the short lived Somah always comes to mind at this time of year. OK, let’s play the next song on Seth Yacovone‘s new album Shovel Down.

5.) Caveman Guerrilla – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) A Company Man – Carraway
7.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
8.) Summer Falls – Lendway

I miss Lendway. Such a great song. Great song from Lobot that I love to pull out now and then. Zeus Springsteen sometimes play that one. More on that later. Another great new song from Carraway. Such a fun new song from Seth and the band. OK, let’s play some more super new music.

9.) I’m All Right You Say – Anachronist
10.) Nightingale – 1881
11.) It’ll Be Okay – Let’s Whisper
12.) Sri Lanka – Ellen Degenerates

Ellen will be at The Monkey House on Saturday. Great song from the Smittens offshoot. Great new song from 1881. Same for Anachronist. I felt terrible upon hearing of the death of Eric Olsen‘s father. I don’t know what to do or say, so I will just try and tell you all how amazing Eric is. It’s the only way I can think of to honor Eric’s father. Here is a small sampling of what Eric has helped create to fill our ears and hearts.

13.) Good Medicine – SWALE
14.) Armadillo – Swale
15.) Faineant – Swale
16.) You Are Not The Photograph – Swale
17.) Hit – Blue Button

Eric also plays with James Kochalka and Let Loco and likely others. I think Swale have a new album coming soon and are recording a video on Saturday. It’s too bad that I’m working. Those are all such great songs. OK, let’s keep rocking.

18.) The Meanest Song I’ll Ever Write – Milton Busker
19.) American Proxy – The Hero Cycle
20.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
21.) Black Blue and White – The New Siberians

I just love the new Siberians album. Great song by Telephone. If you like that song and are in town, check out The Nancy Druids sometime. Hero played around for a year or so in the 2000’s and I love their songs. Great song from Milton. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
23.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
24.) U Can Love If U Want To – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Great classic from Peg. That’s a brand new song from the mighty Zeus. I’ve seen them a couple of times and love them. I’m so psyched to get more of their music and hopefully see them again soon. Great classic from Dirtminers. OK, there’s not much time left so let’s go out with a nautical theme.

25.) The River – Kat Wright
26.) The Anchor – Carraway
27.) Basalt Anchor – Vedora
28.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

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

outro

Heart Of Lothian – Fish
Sleepwalker – 1881
And Dream Of Sheep (live) – Kate Bush
New Love – Andriana Chobot
Who Are These Gods? Dam Kat

I got a little extra organized and have tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM all lined up. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time and will go as follows:

Song before: Alone – Children in Paradise

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have lots of shows happening this week and have Built to Spill playing tonight. Let’s begin tonight with some huge sweeping songs in honor of all of those people in our community who have huge sweeping hearts.

1.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
2.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle
3.) If You Get Lost – SWALE
4.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

Cascade has such a huge luscious sound. Same for Lost. Swale will be playing Saturday at The Monkey House with The Nancy Druids. Sean from the Druids also plays in Telephone so it’s going to be a great night of music. I will be out of town, but more on that later. Great song from Hero. On a more somber note, this week the Burlington community lost one of it’s funniest and most treasured people. I loved all the wry posts that Mike McGonegal shared with us and I got to meet and hang out with him a few weeks back at a Silver Bridget show. I’m going to play three of their instrumental songs to pay a quiet tribute to Mike, and to all of the people who have left this life. I invite you to join me.

5.) Old Man – Silver Bridget
6.) She’s Leaving Home – Silver Bridget
7.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget

It was fun seeing them that night and having Mike help me identify which song they were playing. He will be greatly missed by our community. Since we are in a contemplative mood, let’s play the next song from the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. Here is the next one from Song For My Double.

8.) Contemplating The Ivory – Invisible Homes
9.) Little Monster – Strange Machines
10.) What If – Madaila
11.) What If – REDadmiral

I had to play those two back to back. They are obviously quite different songs. Machines will be at Nectar’s tomorrow. Homes play so many great styles of music. That’s a song from Madaila’s new album Traces. Admiral are at The Monkey House Tonight. So is this next band.

12.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
13.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
14.) Emerald – Ace Frehley
15.) Hey Ernie – Cold Sweat

When I was younger some friends and I would drive all over Vermont and New York to go see Sweat. We’d see them in Glens Falls and Clifton Park and places like that. I have tickets with my brother Ken to see Ace on Saturday in Clifton Park, NY so that should be fun. I believe that Lizzy cover is in the setlist. Great rocker from Mountain and fun song from Phil. I saw this next band last week at Foam Brewers

16.) Medieval Knieval – Barbacoa
17.) Say It – Anachronist
18.) Falter – Chin Ho
19.) Green Apple Girl – David Jarvis

It sounds like Dave is getting the band back together soon. Great classic from Chin. Great song from Anachronist. Barbacoa always rock. OK, let’s keep rocking.

20.) Sally – Daniel Waterhouse (Dan Murphy)
21.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
22.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
23.) A Different Machine – Elephants of Scotland

Great rocker from Elephants, who are really from VT. Great rockers from Dirt and Crazy and cool song from Dan. OK, there’s just a little bit of time left. Let’s keep rocking.

24.) 88 – Wave of the Future
25.) 22R – Cave Bees
26.) Black, Blue and White – The New Siberians
27.) I Am Sunday – The Red Telephone

I thought I’d end where I began. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Outro

Songs after: Internal Exile Medley (Big Bus) – Fish
Against The Rain – TILT
Butts Wigglin’ – The Tragically Hip

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

Song before: Delirious – The Church

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. There is a ton of cool music happening this week including this first band who set up a show tomorrow night at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex.

1.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
2.) Afterall (Glad We Made It) – Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band
3.) Upstream – The New Siberians
4.) Starman – Madaila

I bet it’s going to be a fun time at the fairgrounds tomorrow. That’s a brand new song from the Siberians who’s new album should be out soon. It’s so cool the Kat and the band sold out the Higher Ground ballroom. I guess they’ve definitely made it. OK, last week I played the last song on the Bernie Sanders album. It’s time to pick a new album to play one song per week until I get to the end. For the next few weeks we will listen through Callisto by Alpenglow. Here is the first song.

5.) Dreaming Too Much – Alpenglow
6.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox
7.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
8.) Waterlanding – Swale

I’m so psyched for Swale tonight!! Great song by Aaron. He is playing at the Brick Church in Williston tomorrow. Great song from the Jericho band. Alpenglow are so cool. This next band will be at Speaking Volumes on Pine st on Saturday.

9.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates and the Affiliates

11.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
12.) Wiser – And The Kids

Kids have new shows and music coming soon!! I love that Dirtminers song. REDadmiral have a new album coming very soon. I got a chance to chat with Paul Comegno this week and it sounds like there might be a new Cameo Harlot album and shows in the near future.

13.) Motorcycle Bandsaw – Cameo Harlot
14.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
15.) Round Sum – Cave Bees
16.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica

I just love that Vetica song. With a little luck the Bees may come back for the summer and play a few shows. Great rocker from the Ferrisburg band. I’d love to see Harlot again. OK, Let’s play some rock and roll.

17.) Not A Nice Guy – Rough Francis
18.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
19.) Vestibule – Blue Button

22.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants Of Scotland
23.) Pounding Serf – Barbacoa
24.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath

SS, ie The High Breaks, played Metal Monday at Nectar’s last Monday. I thought it would be fun to play them back to back with the classic Burlington surf rock band, Barbacoa. Great new song from Elephants. I just love Slingshot. OK, let’s mellow things out for the end of the show. This next band release a new EP at 8pm (doors at 7:30) at the First Congregational Church of Burlington on Saturday.

25.) Good Witch – Cricket Blue

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a drizzly rainy night in Burlington and oddly warm for this late in November. Tonight I want to start with the second band I ever saw live. They opened for the Ramones at the Flynn Theater. My friend Christopher Larrow just got a turntable that can rip mp3’s so now I have a copy of this album to play. This is one of those songs that just randomly pops into my head now and then. I hope you enjoy!

1.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
2.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya? – Pinhead
3.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
4.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band

Big Joe passed away a few years back, and has a wonderful statue on Church st, but the band are around and playing tonight at Nectar’s to help celebrate the clubs 40th birthday. A lot of great music has been played in that room. OK, it’s time to play the last song on No Need To Beg. I hope you have enjoyed listening to all of those songs as much as I have.

5.) Insomnia – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) I Feel So Dumb – The Decentz
7.) Medula Momblongata – Strung Out
8.) Say It – Anachronist

Great song from the Central Vermont band. Everyone loved to go see Emily play whenever Strung Out performed. Another classic from Decentz. Another great song from Phil Yates. I will be off next week, since it’s Thanksgiving, but the week after I will have to find a new album to play all the way through. This next set should be fun. It’s about girls clubs and boys clubs and motorcycles.

9.) Bad Girls Club – Colin Nicholas Clary
10.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
11.) She’s A Motorcycle – Colin Clary
12.) Faineant – Swale

I love that song about wishing he was a motorcycle and could go where he wants. Well sung Eric Olsen. Motorcycle and Girls Club are from Twee Blues, the album Colin just sent me. Thanks! There are some fun songs on that album. Boys Club is a classic from Peg about the anger that comes from being excluded because of race or sex or whatever. When you think about it the best way to fight terrorism is not with guns and bombs but to make everyone included and feel valued and have a hope of a decent life. It’s really not that hard to figure out. This next song is something that I have had for months on vinyl but have not been able to play for you, since we play all music files at the station. Thanks for ripping the MP3 for this one Chris!!!

13.) Bling Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush
15.) Cowgirl In The Sand – The Seth Yacovone Band

Seth and the band played a killer show last week at Nectar’s to help WBKM celebrate its birthday. Joe Moore started the night on solo sax and tossed in a nice cover of Heart Of Gold. Seth played a solo set of Neil Young songs. He began with After The Gold Rush and closed with My My Hey Hey. The full band came on after and opened with Hey Hey My My and played tons of classics, including a killer version of Cowgirl. I was just thinking of the show The Cush played last year at Arts Riot, where they sold me their killer new album. That is the lead off song. Great song from Francis!!! OK, let’s keep rocking.

16.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
17.) So They Say – The New Siberians
18.) Who’s Fault Was That – The Snaz
19.) Compared To You – The Decentz

I love mixing something so old like Compared with something so new like Fault. I thought they sounded quite nice together. I’m still impatiently waiting for the next Siberians album. Great song that likely will be on that album. Killer song from Dirtminers. It’s been drizzly and rainy all night and feels a little bit like this.

20.) In The Rain – Plan B
21.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
22.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Musicians

I’m so glad there is one candidate for President talking about the need to create a world where people don’t want to be terrorists, rather than dealing with the repercussions afterwards. Bernie has been doing it for decades. Plan and Alice Austin sure sum up the mood of the evening. Since I have a bit of an international commentary going, I thought this would be fun to play.

23.) Attempt No Landing Aria – Mailbox
24.) Micronesia – Mailbox
25.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s not do it next week but rather spend Thanksgiving with our families and not shopping. Let’s do it the week after that, and the week after that…

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It’s a couple of days before Halloween so time for the scariest and spookiest of local songs.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s very dark and almost time for Halloween, so tonight I will play some spooky scary songs. This is the time of year when the line between our world and the world beyond is very thin. I usually invite my friend from beyond, Mr E. Ghoul, to join me, but it’s just a little too early and the line between our worlds is still to far to cross. Yes, he is having an issue with Incarnation Dysfunction. There are several ways ghouls can cross into our world. Let’s begin with one of the more fun vehicles.

1.) Voodoo Camaro – Wide Wail
2.) Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
3.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult
4.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker

Nice tale of angels and devils from Sarah. She lives in Salem, MA but comes up to Vermont to haunt us now and then. Fun, seasonally appropriate song from Vultures. Some souls prefer to travel in the crazy hearse and some the voodoo camaro. It’s just matter of choice. Up next, is one of the scariest concepts that mortals can deal with, sarcasm.

5.) I’m Thrilled – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
7.) Funeral – Dirtminers
8.) Raising The Dead – Carraway
9.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates

Such fun tales of terror from Phil and Carraway. Funeral is a cool song from the Miners. Great song from Hana. Hopefully, she will come back and play for us sometime in the near future. Phil and the band will be at The Skinny Pancake tomorrow and will play a set of Elvis Costello and one of their own. They are one of every band in town who is playing in the next couple of days. This is a great song from a classic Burlington artist.

10.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
11.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
12.) Gothic Bloodsucker – Zola Turn
13.) Vampyre – Dave Jarvis Band

Classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. The Zola song is from the first album. Killer tune from Casey Merlin Rae who was a writer and musician in town for many years. So, we’ve heard songs about specific beasts like zombies and vampires, so here is one about the generic category of monsters.

14.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
15.) Monsters – Cold Sweat
16.) A Place Both Beautiful And Strange – Vultures Of Cult
17.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse

Killer doom and gloom song from hearse. I love the moody instrumental from Cult. Sweat make the point that monsters don’t have to be supernatural. Great new Doom song. Let’s now turn our sights to magic for a song recorded at the Radio Bean

18.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
19.) Devil – farm
20.) The Death Of Tim Lewis (poem read over the end of Devil and beginning of Devil Knows) – Tim Lewis
21.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Killer version of their new song recorded live at Nectar’s. Great song by Farm about the struggles in life. Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band will be at Nectar’s on Saturday. This song is about a bar that burned down and people died and their ghosts still reside.

22.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
23.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
24.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
25.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox

I love the spooky sound of that song. Ghoul called me and let me know some ghosts prefer to take the train to the other side, not just a car. That one is dedicated to him. Killer song from Better. Great rocker from Persian. This next band weren’t around long but played some solid shows.

26.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
27.) Space Weed Zombies (live) – Wave of the Future
28.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
29.) Children Of The Grave – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars

Killer cover of the Sabbath song from the Saratoga NY band who come to town now and then. Mountain and Wave will play at Finnegan’s tomorrow at 10. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, and that it didn’t scare you too much. Goodbye. Sayonara.

30.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Songs before: Weeping Willow – Persian Claws
A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shot – Neil Young

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington and tonight the town is hopping. There are people all over the place, lots of cars and motorcycles driving up and down main st. The kids went back to school this week, but it’s still a great summer night in town. Tonight I want to start with the upcoming Presidential campaign that is shaping up. No matter what you think, it’s important to elect smart compassionate people who are aware of the subtle intricacies of foreign policy. This first song is about AQ Kahn, the father of the Pakistani atomic bomb, and a cute ditty about unrequited love. Please choose leaders who know more about these kinds of things than rock stars. This is My Atom Girl by the Dirtminers on Wbkm and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) My Atom Girl – Dirtminers
2.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Yea, I finally got a copy of that song that has been played all over Burlington for the last year or so. Thanks Ryan Osswald. Killer song from the politically aware and very thoughtful Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter. He played a pretty cool show at Radio Bean last Saturday. Yes, when choosing a Presidential candidate, it’s nice if they have a good understanding of the American experience, but as the late great Bill Hicks (AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story) once said, “It’s a round world last time I checked” OK, back to music. Burlington had a wonderful guest come and play at Nectar’s for us last night. His name is Yonrico Scott and he’s played with the Derek Trucks Band and dozens of others. He was joined by a bunch of excellent Burlington musicians like Bob Wagner, Shane Hardiman, Josh Weinstein and others. Kat Wright got up and sang a couple of songs with him, which was pretty cool.

4.) Them Changes – Yonrico Scot
5.) You’ll Be The Sky – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Buttonz – Binger
7.) Man On The Side – Joshua Glass Music

I went to Radio Bean and saw acoustic Barbacoa then some of Sammich, which featured Dalton Muzzy from Binger on drums and Josh Glass on keys. They were pretty cool. I saw some of their set, popped over to Nectar’s for most of Yonrico Scot’s first set, then caught the end of Sammich. It was a fun time. In 2013 a well liked and regarded local DJ passed away from leukemia at age 38. Andy Williams, also know as DJ A-Dog, created such love that there was a huge party in his memory last year at Arts Riot. This year the party is on Saturday and is at both Nectar’s and Club Metronome with tons of DJs all day and night, and a show from Rough Francis.

8.) U Thought U Nu-Funk intro… – DJ A-Dog
9.) Exit Strategy – Rue Mevlana
10.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS

I’m pretty sure Francis really though A-Dog was righteous, so I wanted to play that one. Rue are playing a show in a couple of weeks called Motley Rue. Could be interesting. OK, here is the next song from JV.

11.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
12.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
13.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
14.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight

I love that song, and miss Doll Fight! Classic ’90’s Burlington rock song from Tokyo. I haven’t caught up with As in a while and would really like to. Killer Mountain song!! I first saw this next band when they played one of the legendary parties at Max Krauss‘ house. He moved to Boston and joined them for a new EP.

15.) Auxiliary Girl – Night Slice
16.) Flipside – Kimberly White Project
17.) Bomb – Envy

Classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. I totally cheated with Flipside since KWP play in the Carolinas, but a local musician, who now lives down there, turned me on to them, and I wanted to play a song. Thanks for the heads up Brian Wardrep. This next band played around New England some time ago, had a beer named after them at Vt Pub, then eventually broke up. They are doing a reunion show at Higher Ground on September 5th.

18.) Ocheh (Someday I) – Currently Nameless
19.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
20.) Tune Of An Onion – Currently Nameless

Sean Daily, aka Milton Busker, used to play with Nameless so I though it would be fun to toss one of his songs in between two of theirs. He’s playing Aug 30 at Radio Bean with his new band The Grim Work. This next band played around from 2003-2012 and released this compilation called When Nobody Was Looking. They featured Adam Rabin who went on to join Elephants Of Scotland, and totally flew under my radar. Rats. .

21.) Attempt No Landing Aria – Mailbox
22.) Micronesia – Mailbox
23.) The Other Room (live) – Elephants of Scotland

Elephants are a long way into the third studio album. I can’t wait. Tomorrow at Radio Bean is Vermont Joy Parade, Duke Aeroplane & The Wrong Numbers, and a solo set from Anna Pardenik.

24.) Trouble Of Your Bretheren – Anna Pardenik
25.) This Land Is Your Land – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

Getting back to the beginning, if you want a leader who will take care of your bretheren Bernie will do the job nicely. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
