1.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
2.) Lion Tamer – Carraway
3.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
4.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
Villanelles keep playing that song for us. Thanks guys. Great song from Siberians. Considering the line from the Druids song, I just had to follow it with the Carraway. OK, here is the next song on By My Side.
5.) I Do – Kat Wright
6.) Crazy – Clever Girls
7.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue
8.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass

9.) Ever Travel – The Red Telephone
10.) Drivin’ All Alone – The Parts
11.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
12.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
Great song from the ’80’s. Zola Rocked us in the ’90’s. Telephone rocked us in the 00’s and the Parts are rocking us now. So, if you like punk head to Jim’s basement on Saturday for these next two bands.
13.) Blank Daze – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim
15.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers
16.) Something I Drew – farm
It was fun chatting with Brent Hallenbeck last night about our local music scene. I was on Rocket Shop on Big Heavy World last night to announce that all of my show write-ups, past and future, will be part of BHW. Brent was a great host and we both liked Farm and The Cush. We were sad that Farm went away but happy about how they morphed into The Mountain Says No.
17.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
18.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
19.) Every Last One Of Us – SWALE
20.) The Heart Is King – Pinhead
Pinhead helped open Burlington up to the wide variety of music that exists today. Great song from Swale. I want to send lots of love to Eric Olsen who just lost his mother. Our hearts go out to you Eric!!! Great take on the Stones song by Bridget and great rocker from Mountain. This next band was the first to really turn me on to our local music scene, so many years ago.
21.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
22.) Decide – Dave Jarvis Band
23.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
24.) Round Sum – Cave Bees
The Bees come out to rock us now and then, and have been doing so for years. Rabbit always put on fun shows. Dave rocked us back in the ’90’s and has a new band called Agent 802. I love Ninja. OK, let’s stay in the past for a bit.
25.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
26.) Holly Mae – The Snaz
27.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
28.) Six Inch Knife – Will
29.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
Great song from the Rutland band. They morphed out of Will who played around in the 00’s. I can’t wait to see Zeus again and hear what they are recording. Super cool song from the Snaz and fun rocker from Decentz. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1Fm will run from 9-11pm this evening and will go as follows:
Song before: Goodbye Yellow Brook Road – Elton John
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?
Big Wedge (live) – Fish
Emerald – Ace Frehley
Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
King Of The Night Time World – Kiss
The Funny Bird – Mercury Rev
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music
Tonight’s local music Halloween show on 107.1FM WBKM runs from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:
Song before: Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
From our small mortuary to the great big graveyard, these are the skulls of Burlington. It’s been a terrifying few days in Burlington with cold wind and snow blanketing the beautiful red orange and gold leaves. The forecast is for it to get darker and darker until All Hallows Eve on Monday, then it will return to it’s usual lovely state. Our sponsor, Higher Ground, is likely going to send me to the gallows for not mentioning how great of a rock club they are but tonight I want to focus on the fusion of the physical world and the spirits that inhabit it. Our perception of life is merely the light dancing across shifting solid objects. Let’s explore this subject matter with a song called Shadow and Act by Invisible Homes on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.
1.) Shadow And Act – Invisible Homes
2.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker
3.) Release The Dead – Chin Ho
4.) Angels And Devils – Invisible Homes
That was a song called Angels and Devils by Invisible Homes on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Can you think of anything more terrifying than going back to your home after a long night at the clubs and finding it invisible? Once you find your way inside it must be hard to balance the angels and devils. For the tale before that I had to dig deep into one of our oldest graveyards to find the song Release the dead by Chin Ho. Did you enjoy Sarah Blacker’s tale of darkness and light in Oh My God? I hope Invisible Homes twin tales of Shadow and Act and Angels and Devils help you enjoy the thin thread between the worlds. Speaking of the devil. let’s take a journey to an ancient Vermont Farm for a song called Devil on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemor’s kind of music too.
5.) Devil – farm
6.) Devil’s Work – Thompson Gunner
7.) Devil’s Right Hand – Swillbillie
8.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western
Great Western must be terrified that the Devil Knows Their Name on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Swillbillie told us a gruesome tale of a gun being used as The Devil’s Right Hand. Thompson Gunner told us a tale of he Devil’s Work, and Farm told us a story about freeing themselves from the hold of the Devil. Now, we shall let Hana Zara tell us about one of our most famous holiday’s. It’s called Day Of The Dead on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.
9.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
10.) Raising The Dead – Carraway
11.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
12.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
Considering America’s imminent grand decision, perhaps it is just Two Weeks (’til the end of the world) as the band Grand so nicely stated on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. I hope you enjoyed Phil Yates’ tale of Ninjas Vs Zombies and the epic battle for life. If the zombies should win, at least they dance well, as Carraway explained in Raising The Dead. Hana Zara’s cheery tale of the Day Of The Dead should give you hope too, in the darkest of evenings. Are you afraid yet? I hope so because it’s time to be terrified. It’s time for Doom Service and a Welcome To The Hellmouth on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.
13.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service
14.) Demon Eyes – Lake Superior
15.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
16.) Vampyre – David Jarvis
That was a tale of the Vampyre by Dave Jarvis on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Dave will resurrect his old body and band for a show tomorrow and I hear word that the Vampyre will appear. Were you more afraid of Crazyhearse’s story of the Demon Moon or Lake Superior’s Demon eyes? Both were pretty frightening. I hope you enjoyed your Welcome To The Hellmouth with Doom Service. They put on the darkest of shows last Tuesday at Nectar’s. This next singer plays all the time, but to find Alice Austin, you must go to a Graveyard Before Dark on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora.
17.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
18.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
19.) Children Of The Grave – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars
20.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
Even ghouls like to surf so I hope you enjoyed the cover of Paranoid by Surf Sabbath on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Since Vultures of Cult and SWALE are playing Black Sabbath cover shows on Saturday I had to subject us to Children Of The Grave by Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic All Stars. The Contrarian took us on a trip through One More Grave and we started in The Graveyard Before Dark with newly married Alice Austin. As all of the undead know, once you are in the grave, there is only one way to go, down. Fortunately, you will be guided by Our Lady Of The Underground as told by Anais Mitchell on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.
21.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
22.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
23.) You’ll Make A Great Ghost – the grift
24.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox
Did you enjoy your journey on the Ghost Train with Jerichovox on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora? I hope so, there will be more ghostly songs soon. The Grift thought You Will Make A Great Ghost and I agree. That was Marco Benevento and Kat Wright who admitted that I Put A Spell On You and Anais Mitchell was Our Lady Of The Underground. Some people are addicted to the supernatural but Aaron Flinn is forever Giving Up The Ghost on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemors kind of music too.
25.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
26.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
27.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
28.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
Better things are lovely kids to think that they can go around Killing Ghosts on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh’, Danemora. The Persian Claws left us Ghostified and Elephants of Scotland regaled us with a tale of Counting On A Ghost. Aaron Flinn is still Giving Up The Ghost and may do so for all eternity. This next group of individuals has demised as a band, but spend some time before they left Planning My Funeral. They were briefly known as Poxy on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora kind of music too.
29.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
30.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult
As we approach Halloween, we are all With The Dead as foretold by Vultures of Cult on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. I hope you were terrified to check out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Goodbye. Farewell, See Ya, Sayonara.
31.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
Plague Of Ghosts (live USA 2000) – Fish
Phantom Girl – The Cush
Black 17 – The New Siberians
Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot

It’s a busy week at work so I put in 8 hours, caught a couple of songs by Mal Maiz next door at Summervale, did a quick stop at home and was downtown by 9 to do the following local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM on both sides of the Champlain Valley.
This Is The Sound – Folksongs For The Afterlife
New Americana – Halsey
Swimming – Arc Iris
Paycheck – Slingshot Dakota
Don’t Be Late – Saga
The Awful Ache – The Church Band
Soft Revolution – Stars
Song before – Lost In The Supermarket – The Clash
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. It’s a bit of a slow week but tomorrow at noon tickets go on sale for The English Beat, if that is of interest. That show is coming up in September. It was so great to hear and see the dynamic songwriting duo of Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton last week at The Monkey House when they were joined by Julia Austin and Ann Mindell when they played as Envy. Let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean and Matt’s last album.
1.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone
2.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
3.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.
I love the line about what you throw away, to me, is solid gold. That sums up many of the similarities and differences between us all. Nice London Calling reference too. Great couple of songs from Chin. I love that Telephone song. OK, let’s play the next song on the Giant Places album.
4.) The Words Will Show – Lendway
5.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa
6.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
The Breaks played as Sabbath last night at Nectar’s. Barbacoa opened for Envy last week and played the instrumental surf version of Bloodboy. Envy played it properly when they opened their set. Nice instrumental from Lendway. OK, let’s play some rock and roll with some words.
7.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
8.) The Blackout – The Static Age
9.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
10.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers
I’ve always thought that was one of the great songs played in Burlington. The Snaz are coming to town for a show at Radio Bean tomorrow and one at The Monkey House on Saturday. I love that song by Static. When I saw them so many years ago it was the first time I saw Bobby Hackney Jr. play drums. He just played with Barbacoa last week at the Envy show and was totally amazing. Great song by Zola. Many years ago The Cush came to Burlington and enchanted us for a few years. They are just about to begin a European tour so let’s celebrate with some of their wonderful music.
11.) Hollow – The Cush
12.) Roll Me – The Cush
13.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush
I hope they have a great tour!! One of the cool things about the Envy show last week was catching up with old friends like this guy.
15.) Decide – David Jarvis
16.) Comin’ Home – The Hippnotix
17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles
Villanelles were just as great a week ago Wednesday as they were the previous three. That night Grand opened for them and were pretty amazing too. Hipp Notix are from New York and, if I’m not mistaken, are from Dave’s neck of the woods. So, this is the week that the Seven Days Daisy awards came out. Daniel Bolles also awarded some special not quite awards called Dandelions. He rightly awarded Villanelles for best rock band and somehow me for local music champion, though fellow nominees such as Luke Awtry, James Lockridge, and Girls Rock Vermont deserved it as much or more. Thanks Dan and 7 Days. Oh, and this next singer and band rightly swept the local popular Daisy votes in a few categories.
19.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
20.) Bad Oasis – farm
21.) Star – The New Siberians
That is such a great song. I love that Farm song. OK, this next singer is 17 years old but is on her way to become a star.
22.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
23.) Bury Me – Forest Gray
24.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
25.) Time to Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days
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 in the Champlain Valley and broadcasting online on our Facebook Page WBKM, or at our website WBKM.ORG will go as follows:
Song before: The Crystal Ship – The Doors
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a great week in Burlington with temperatures finally in the 70’s and 80’s and it’s so easy to get out and to do whatever you want. It’s so great to feel that freedom. One symbol of freedom that many people use as an allusion is the ship. Going to sea and setting yourself in a dance with nature is classic symbol throughout literature. Let’s begin with a song about ships.
1.) Ships – Anais Mitchell
2.) U Can Love If U Want To – Peg Tassey
3.) The Sea (Zach’s Song) – Francesca Blanchard
That’s a strong and gorgeous song from Francesca. Choosing to love is the ultimate Freedom. Thanks Peg Tassey MUSIC for explaining it so well. Great song from Anais. OK, let’s play the next song on Callisto.
4.) Find A Way – Alpenglow
5.) Storytellers – Slingshot Dakota
6.) Sun-Dipped Orphans And The Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland
7.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox
Beautiful song from the Jericho band. Something in Orphans reminded me of Dreamtime so I had to play them back to back. Great new song from Elephants. The new album called Break by Slingshot is still rocking my world. That’s another of the wonderful songs on that album. Great new song from Alpenglow. Last Sunday I had the usual bunch of friends stop over to watch Game Of Thrones. I know, I should have skipped it and went to Radio Bean to see REDadmiral, but just because I missed them, that doesn’t mean that you have to.
8..) Stop – REDadmiral
9.) Look At The Lilacs – Binger
10.) Stick That In Your Juicebox and Sip It – Better Things
11.) All My Life – Wide Wail
Classic rocker from Burlington’s ’90’s. BT did a great job opening for Slingshot at The Monkey House a couple of weeks ago. They played a great version of Juicebox that night. The lilacs are blooming and smelling fantastic and I love that new Binger song. Cool rocker from Admiral. So, I heard the coolest news last week. I went to Radio Bean to see The Nancy Druids and since Sean is playing in the band with Ann Mindell, and Julia Austin was hanging out at the show, Sean said that in July that Matt Hutton would come to Vermont and they will play an Envy reunion show!!! I think they were my favorite band from the ’90’s and I’m so excited! Here are a few songs from their album Distorted Greetings.
12.) Bloodboy – Envy
13.) Still Life Scene – Envy
14.) Bomb – Envy
I can’t wait to see them again! Yea! OK, on a different note, I’m in a bit of a melancholy mood, since it’s almost Memorial Day and last year on that day my uncle passed away. Hearing the news on Wednesday that Gordon Downie from The Tragically Hip was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer was pretty devastating. They have played Burlington many many times and have filled Vermont with their music for many years. They have a new album coming out and will do one more tour, which just amazes me. Here is a set of their music.
15.) Music At Work – The Tragically Hip
16.) New Orleans Is Sinking (live) – The Tragically Hip
17.) Fully Completely – The Tragically Hip
It’s sad and beautiful to think that we will get one more chance to see the mighty Canadian band. OK, let’s switch to some good news. Vermont artist Anais Mitchell did an album about her take on the Orpheus and Eurydice saga a few years ago. She called it Hadestown and it’s being performed in New York City off Broadway at the New York Theater Workshop. Here are a few songs from the album.
18.) Lover’s Desire – Anais Mitchell
19.) His kiss, the Riot – Anais Mitchell
20.) Doubt Comes In – Anais Mitchell
21.) I Raise My Cup To Him – Anais Mitchell
That is the ending of the Hadestown album. Well, there’s only so much time, so let’s play one more song.
22.) Extended Werewolf – farm
There’s only so much time indeed. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Songs after: Lost Plot (live) – Fish
Grace, Too – The Tragically Hip
Freak Turbulence – The Tragically Hip
Blow At High Dough – The Tragically Hip

A Certain Slant Of Light – The Tea Party
Wavelength – The Bears

Song before: Safe European Home – The Clash
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. One of the legendary Burlington musicians from the ’90’s released a new ep this week. She is celebrating with a release party tonight in California. This is the title song.
1.) Cowboy Summer – Alice Austin
2.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Snow In The Controls – Dom The Barber
4.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker
Great song from Milton. I’ve been waiting until it was snowy out to play the Dommer Barber song. It isn’t really snowy out, but is in late January. I have played the Jeremy song before but that was a demo and this is the brand new studio version. Great stuff from Alice, as always. This next band played a fantastic version of this song last week at Signal Kitchen.
5.) Golden Crutch – Swale
6.) Son, You Are No Island – Torres
7.) Year Of The Snake – Tyler Daniel Bean
8.) Jack Sharp – Swale
Swale played a rocking version of that one too. Tyler played that song solo acoustic, but it had a lot of fire, and the version I just played is the full band version. Pretty cool song. Island was the song that stood out the most at the Torres show, though I really liked it all. I love the slow build and heavy surge at the end. I though it would be fun to bookend that set with Swale. OK, here is the next song on Red Flannel Hash
9.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
10.) Throw Me Away – Spill
11.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
12.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
Classic rocker from Ninja. FTC rocked us for a few years in the early 2000’s and put on some pretty intense shows. Spill are another great ’90’s band and that song always grabbed me. I just love that Rabbit song!! There is a cool show happening tomorrow at Twofourtwo Main with these next three bands.
13.) Last Song – Carraway
14.) No Way – Phantom Suns
15.) Nothing Important – Doom Service
Doom have a new album called Live At Mount Doom, so I got that one from that album. Great songs from Phantom and Carraway. I really have to make it to 242 Main tomorrow. OK, let’s keep rocking.
16.) Ladders – Heavy Plains
17.) Great Scott – Wave Of The Future
18.) Too Drunk – The Dirty Blondes
19.) Hello World – Screaming Skull
20.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
Killer song from the late ’80’s early ’90’s band. That Skull song is so cool. It’s a short intro followed by a shorter burst of intense rock. I just heard that the Blondes are playing at the Bowie tribute thing at Higher Ground tonight and I’m bummed I missed them. That is such a fun song from Wave. Great rocker from Plains. OK, let’s keep rocking.
21.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
22.) Not True – Peg Tassey
23.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers
24.) Plastic Revolution
I keep singing that song “Revolution, Bern style now.” Great rocker from Gabby. Great rocker from Peg. Earthquakes had me bouncing around the studio, but of course, the other songs had me doing that too. OK, let’s keep rocking.
25.) Something I Drew – Farm
26.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
27.) Weapons Factory – The Wards with the Dirty Blondes
28.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian
I love that song from Casey Merlin Rae. Classic from the ’80’s punk band. That was a re-recorded version with a bit of help from Diane Sullivan on vocals. Great song from Beano’s solo band. Hmmm, Farm. I liked the Torres show so much, I want to toss in another song. This is the title song from the new album.
29.) Sprinter – Torres

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. Last week I had it well together but this week the work time change hours from the last couple of weeks are really catching up. I slacked and did a short show then filled the rest of the time with Bowie songs, which I might have done anyway.
Songs before:Suffragette City – David Bowie
It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie
Song before: Station To Station (live) – David Bowie
From our small city to the great big world these are The Sounds Of Burlington. It’s not as bustling in town this week but is a beautiful mellow night. I want to apologize since I think tonight is going to be a bit of a shorter show. My whole work schedule changed a couple of weeks ago and working early mornings Monday to Friday is taking some getting used to. I’m not sure if the change is permanent or temporary, but I’ll get used to it soon. Last Friday I got to see four great bands. This first band played another stunning show at The Skinny Pancake.
1.) If You Get Lost – Swale
2.) The Saddest Man – Myra Flynn
3.) Spi-Fy – Barbacoa
4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
Joe Adler and the Rangers played a wonderful show at Nectar’s last Friday. Myra opened and I picked up her Half Pigeon album and Saddest really jumped out. In hindsight I should have not left Barbacoa so soon, they played after Swale at the Pancake, but I thought the timing was tighter and Myra’s band was pretty amazing. Sometimes there is too much music in town. OK, let’s play the next song on Red Flannel Hash.
5.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
6.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants of Scotland
8.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains
Plains are playing at The Monkey House tomorrow and I’m very psyched for the show. I love that new Elephants song. Mountain played a couple of stunning sets at Zen Lounge last Saturday. I love the Rabbit song, and all of their songs. I just got this next song last week and played it on last weeks show. I liked it so much I want to play it again.
9.) Barstools (live) – Abbie Morin
10.) Wiser – And The Kids
11.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
12.) Elanor Rigby – Screaming Broccoli
What a fun rocking cover by the late ’80’s Burlington band. I miss Ninja. Kids are out and touring the country. If they come to your town, go! Great song from Abbie Gail. This is another great Burlington classic.
13.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
14.) Extended Werewolf – farm
Both of those are such great songs. Well, I’m going to call it a night, but I have a bunch of Bowie stacked up if you want to listen for a while. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
