Song before: It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks

inro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I can seen you and you are amazing. You are beautiful. You can let that shine into our world at any time. Let out your super powers.

1.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers
2.) Interstellar Kid – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Chosen Names – Julia Caesar
4.) Girl, Friend – T-Rextasy

Rex are from New York but stopped by town last Saturday to play at the Ramble showcase down by North st and North ave. They were so fun. Julia opened that show. Great new song form Jeremy’s new album Threaded. I love that new song from the Shakers. More about that in a bit. OK, here’s a delightful song from a delightful band.

5.) Red Rose – The Zii Trees
6.) Don’t You Wanna Know – The Thursday Torys
7.) St Patrick’s Day – Carraway
8.) Morning Again – Doll Fight

I miss Fight. They rocked so hard. Super cool song form Carraway. Great song from the Torys new album Future Folk. I’m sure I’ll get more on the air in the next few weeks. OK, here is the next song on The Uncanny Doom Service album. It’s cool that they tossed in a couple of clips of the Twilight Zone episode that this song was written about.

9.) Monsters Are Due On Maple Street – Doom Service
10.) Don’t Want To Know If You Are Lonely – Black Rabbit
11.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes
12.) Chum On The Drums – Bee Bee Sea

I don’t know it for sure, but it really sounds like Sea are singing Ornan is a chum so I had to play it with the Blondes song to celebrate the wonderful person Ornan McLean. He’s been through more than anyone should have to go through lately. We love you Ornan. Great cover from Rabbit and great rocker from Doom. Is it really that easy to dupe us humans? Sigh. OK, relax, get nice and chill, get yourself in a happy mood and let’s go. Let’s take a dive into a new album called All Circles Vanish.

13.) Can You Take Me Back – The Dead Shakers
14.) Surfin’ Ain’t As Fun As It Used To Be – The Dead Shakers
15.) Headless – The Dead Shakers
16.) Taung Child – The Dead Shakers
17.) Websdr.ewi.utwente.nl-8901 – The Dead Shakers
18.) I Will Bow And Be Simple – The Dead Shakers

That is such a fun and trippy album. There’s a lot more to it but that’s a nice chunk. Thanks for being so amazing Kevin Bloom! OK, I’ve been playing a lot of short songs tonight. Let’s stretch out a little.

19.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
20.) Lines And Spaces – The Cancer Conspiracy
21.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian
22.) The Road – Anders Parker

That’s such an amazing song from Anders. Great song from Casey Rae. Cancer played around in the ’90’s and still do shows now and then. I’m not sure what’s happening with the Elephants now that Ornan is no longer drumming for them. Either way, that’s a cool song. OK, this next band played the Ramble show too.

23.) Gorilla Monsoon – Barbacoa
24.) Who Do You Love? – The Red Newts
25.) My Life In The West – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
26.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

I love that song from Whisper. David and the band are continuing their series of shows in Vermont libraries. They will be in Fairfax tomorrow and I may have to catch that one. I chose West for obvious reasons. After the show at the Ramble I walked the 10 or 20 feet over to The Old North Ender and caught some songs by the Newts. They played a fun version of that one and some cool original tunes that I will have to track down soon. Barbacoa are just amazing. OK, let’s take a deep dive into Heavy Flow, the new album from Julia Caesar

27.) Falter – Julia Caesar
28.) Nose Dive – Julia Caesar
29.) Ode To the River – Julia Caesar
30.) Hear Me Now – Julia Caesar

Such a great album from such a great band. It’s going to be fun to see where they go with it. OK, let’s play another new song from Jeremy.

31.) It’s Hard To Resist – Jeremy Gilchrist
32.) Parasite – Miku Daza
33.) Procession 1 – ROUGH FRANCIS

Such great songs from such thoughtful artists. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Bury My Lovely – October Project

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Usually, I start out a little mellow and work my way up into a maelstrom. Let’s change that tonight and start rocking now.

1.) This Town – Suburban Samurai
2.) Betty Rage – Doll Fight
3.) Willow I & II – Tyler Daniel Bean

Great music from Tyler and the band. There is a wonderful video for Willow II that speaks about depression. If you ever feel that way, please reach out to friends. We care more than you might realize. Another reason to play i & II is to celebrate Tyler’s new shop called Willow’s Bagels. I’ve enjoyed my two visits. Great rockers from Fight and Samurai. OK, so last week I finished playing Engine by Kelly Ravin. Tonight we begin the trek through The Uncanny Doom Service.

4.) The Curse Of The Doom Service – Doom Service
5.) Imaginary – Envy
6.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
7.) Paper Train – David L Jarvis

That’s a classic from the ’90’s. Fun rocker from Dino, that song was recorded last year. Envy were an amazing part of the local music scene in the ’90’s. Great song, and album, by Doom. So, Envy had two great singer songwriter guitar players named Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton. They went on to form The Red Telephone and the duo will play a show at Radio Bean on Saturday at 7pm. They recorded an interview with Mike Luoma this afternoon that will be broadcast on WBKM tomorrow around 1pm. Let’s dive in and listen to some of their music.

8.) Pennsylvania – The Red Telephone
9.) Jet Pilot High – The Red Telephone
10.) Bionic – The Red Telephone
11.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
12.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
13.) I Don’t Know What To Believe – The Red Telephone

Bionic was from the album they did after getting signed to Warner Brothers. Believe is about getting dropped from the label and going out on your own. Jet is the first song on their solo EP Aviation. Pennsylvania is from the Cellar Songs album, as is Teenage. Today is from the Places You Return album that came out a couple of years ago. I’m so happy to see them play on Saturday. OK, this next artist is at Foam Brewers tomorrow.

14.) Mama – Ivamae
15.) Strings – Binger
16.) Sandblaster – The High Breaks
17.) Detective Norman – Sad Turtle

Turtle will be at the Bean after the Hutton Toohey Disaster on Saturday. The Breaks will be at Foam on Saturday. Binger will play BCA on Wednesday. This next band played a cool show last week.

18.) Plague Bearer – Wolfhand
19.) Space Weed Zombies – Wave of the Future
20.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
21.) Signal Loss – Zeus Springsteen

Zeus and the Rabbit will be at The Monkey House on Saturday. I thought it would be fun to play the zombie song since Turtle, Wolfhand and Wave share band members. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) Everything You Say And Do – Bison
23.) Simpsons – J Bengoy
24.) My New Mix Tape – Eef
25.) Today Is Mine – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Great new song from the Book Of Zoo album. David and the band will soon launch their noble quest to encourage literacy and support libraries. Super fun song from Eef and interesting advice about how to watch the Simpsons. Bison are so much fun. OK, let’s keep on with more beautiful music.

26.) Middlesex – SWALE
27.) Poem for Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC
28.) Even The Clouds Get High – James Kochalka
29.) Grandma Betty’s Good Time Smoking Weed – Brother Zag.

The Brother seldom plays out but now and then you might hear a random guitar play through the old north end. Fun song from James and classic from Peg. We wish you well Peg, get better soon. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Seth also played the WBKM birthday party. He played a great version of Mr Reed and he was joined by Aaron Flinn for an amazing version of Cowboy. Zeus rocked Radio Bean last night. Cool rockers from Green and Kief. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I’m off next week for Thanksgiving but will be back the week after to do it all over again.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and can be streamed from the Facebook page link above. It will go as follows.

Song before: The End Of The World – Skeeter Davis

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight is the 200th show that I’ve done on WBKM and it’s been a joy bringing you some of Burlington’s best music over the past 4 years. Tonight, I will pull out a whole bunch of classic songs. Let’s begin with one of my favorite songs from 2007.

1.) Star – The New Siberians
2.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
3.) Black Sheep – Kelly Ravin
4.) Green Doors – Lowell Thompson Music and Crown Pilot

Lowell and Kelly play in a band called The Welterweights and they play at Higher Ground on Saturday. Thanks for sponsoring our station Higher Ground! Andriana is amazing and I loved seeing her play that song last Friday. Hmmm, Siberians. OK, it’s time to play the next song on By My Side.

5.) Way With Words – Kat Wright
6.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget
7.) Unspoken – Anders Parker
8.) When She Sleeps – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Great gentle and powerful song from Peg. Anders is just amazing. Bridget are playing some enchanting shows these days. Yet another great song from Kat. This next band released this song last year and it quickly became a favorite. They are playing at The Monkey House on Saturday.

9.) The Bad Year – Carraway
10.) Paper Train – Dave Jarvis Band (Daffy Mal Yinkleyank)
11.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
12.) Popular Crowd – SWALE

Swale are playing great shows and are about to drop a new album on us. They have a Kickstarter going if you want to help out. Zola and Dave put on great shows in the ’90’s and Dave is now in Agent 802. Great song from Carraway. This band played around in the early 2010’s.

13.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
14.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
15.) Sun In The Sky – Ninja Custodian
16.) You – Screaming Broccoli

Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s. Same for Ninja. I want to send Sun to anyone going through a rough time. It’s always been a source of strength for me. Doubtfire are out playing great shows and have a new EP coming soon. Hmmm, Claws. OK, here is another of my favorite songs.

17.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
18.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
19.) Bloodboy – Envy
20.) Black & Red – ROUGH FRANCIS

Francis are a tremendous band and have a new album coming soon. Envy played great shows in the ’90’s and one last year. Doll Fight rocked us in the 2000’s and Rabbit are rocking us now. This next song is one of the most intense songs that got played in town many times over the years.

21.) The Drone – The Cush
22.) Release The Beast – The Mountain Says No
23.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
24.) Bionic – The Red Telephone

Such a great song from Matt Hutton and Sean Toohey as they moved from Envy to RT. Casey Merlin Rae is the Contrarian and is amazing. Great song from Mountain’s first album and an absolute classic from The Cush. This next band are playing around as The High Breaks but did an album of Sabbath.

25.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath
26.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
27.) Grey Goo – Villanelles
28.) Break – Slingshot Dakota

SD come to town so often they are honorary Vermonters. Villanelles are playing around and that song always makes me happy. Great song from Vetica from the 2010’s and a rearranged classic from the Breaks from the last year or so. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

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?

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will go as follows:

Song before: Time Warp – Rocky Horror Picture Show

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. I heard the Shellac show was great last night and Dweezil is playing on Sunday so that is cool. It’s just been so lovely around town lately with lots of sunny days lighting up the foliage. It makes me think of this song.

1.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
2.) Nightingale – 1881
3.) Good Times – Grand
4.) Last Night – Carraway

Great fun brand new rocking song from Carraway. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album when it comes out. I just got Grand’s EP and it rocks nicely. 1881 just put out their second EP Camera. The first was called Lights and the third will be Action. Hmmm, Black Rabbit. OK, let’s play the next song from the Invisible Homes album Song For My Double.

5.) The Lie – Invisible Homes
6.) Fa Fa Fanta – WE Are The Asteroid
7.) Desert – Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re
8.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees

Bees played a great version of that one last night at ArtsRiot. They were joined by Tsu and Asteroid. They have been touring together and recorded one of each others songs. Desert is really an Asteroid song and Fa is a Tsu song. I though it would be fun to play those two. Great song by Homes. These next three bands will rock Nectar’s next Tuesday.

9.) Losing Control – Mr. Doubtfire
10.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
11.) Getting Laid In New Hampshire – Better Things
12.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight

I miss Doll Fight. I’m glad they left us lots of music before breaking up. Nectar’s should be fun next Tuesday!! OK, let’s keep rocking.

13.) Burn – Dirty Blondes
14.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
15.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
16.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Peg and Broccoli used to rock our town in the late ’80’s and ’90’s. I love that Vetica song. The Blondes will host a huge party at Nectar’s on election night so come on out if you do not want to be alone. This next song is a Burlington classic.

17.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
18.) Paint With The Sun – Arc Iris
19.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
20.) Vicarious – Alice Austin

Great song from Alice. I’m loving the Andriana album. Arc played a great show on Saturday at Signal Kitchen. Hmmm, The Cush. This next band play in town a lot and always put on a great show.

21.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids
22.) The Territory – Hana Zara
23.) Terrarium – Vedora
24.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws

Persian are fun and are Barbacoa when Dee joins them. Great song from Caroline Marie‘s band. Hana played a great show a while ago and I can’t wait for her new album. OK, let’s listen to a little evolution in action.

25.) Chop Wood/Carry Water – Zola Turn
26.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
27.) Void – The Lavas
28.) Popular Crowd – SWALE

Swale are going to dress up as Black Sabbath and play the Paranoid album the Saturday before Halloween. Alice Austin and Julia Austin were in Zola then changed the band to Queen then to the Lavas, so I thought it would be fun to listen to those three together. OK, there’s not much time left. On Saturday lots of musicians will assemble for Ladies Rock Lotto Fall 2016 and will form bands in the morning and perform later that night. It’s a benefit for Girls Rock Vermont. Here are a couple of songs by prominent supporters Linda Bassick and Samara Lark Brown.

29.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future
30.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
31.) High Water Mark – Belizbeha

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