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

Song before: Russian Autumn Heart – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Jazzfest kicks off tomorrow in Burlington, so I’ve got a bit of jazz lined up, but the main part of the show will be to go deeper into the albums of a few bands I’ve been playing recently. It seems like I have played one song by a bunch of bands and said that I would have to check them out more. We will do that tonight. However, considering the date, I have to begin with a different song. Today is the second of June, so let’s begin with this:

1.) Last Day Of May – The Red Telephone
2.) Farside – Villanelles
3.) Sometime Next Year – 1881
4.) The Blackout – The Static Age

I love that song by Static and just have to pull it out and play now and then. Another cool song from 1881. I may have to check them out live sometime soon. Great song from Villanelles new album Blue Heart Attack, which had a great write up in Seven Days this week. Great song from Telephone. OK, here is the next song on Callisto.

5.) Flicker Flutter – Alpenglow
6.) Break – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Empty Frequency – Rue M. (Rue Mevlana)
8.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music

Myra will kick off Jazzfest at The Skinny Pancake on Friday. I just love the energy that Rue put into a song and a show. Another gorgeous song from Slingshot. If you hadn’t noticed, I played their entire Break album song for song for the last 9 weeks. Break is the last song on the album. Flicker is the second to last song on Callisto. I will play the last one next week, then start another album the week after that. OK, it’s Jazzfest. Let’s play some jazz.

9.) NoRoomForSquares – Sneakers Jazz Band
10.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass
11.) Now That You Are Gone – Francesca Blanchard

Another great song from Francesca’s deux visions album. Great song from Gregory. So many great jazz players used to play at Sneakers. This next song is a great song that I do not play often enough.

12.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music
13.) Who’s Fault Was That? – The Snaz
14.) Barstool Blues – Seth Yacovone Band
15.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Great song from David and the band. Killer cover of the Neil Young song from Seth. The Snaz just rock. I love the Josh song. OK, Let’s play a song from Vetica from an album they put out after breaking up. This is a song from the Songs In The Key Of V album.

16.) Distance – Vetica
17.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis
18.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim
19.) Mush – Phantom Suns

Great rocker from Phantom. I have to get out and catch them soon. Same for Sink. I love that Dave song from the ’90’s. I miss Vetica. OK, let’s let the music get a little scary for a while.

20.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western
21.) Raising The Dead – Carraway
22.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates

Such a fun song from Phil. Great song from Carraway. Same for Western. Here is a new song from a band I’ve been meaning to check out more.

23.) Sunshine – Apartment 3
24.) High Water Mark – The Pants

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

Song Before: Escape Is At Hand For The Traveling Band – The Tragically Hip

Promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Binger have been playing some great shows lately, both in Burlington and all around. They have a brand new song that features Stephanie Heaghney on vocals, and the usual spiritually alive lyrics. Let’s take a listen.

1.) If I knew – Binger
2.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders
3.) Freeway – David Rosane and the Zookeepers
4.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists

I just love the version of the classic that Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, and lots of others put together to honor Bernie Sanders and to stand behind him. Freeway has a revolutionary spirit, in a Bernie kind of way. I caught David last night at Radio Bean and enjoyed the two songs I heard. He is playing a Bernie benefit in West Newbury on Saturday. Classic from the album Bernie recorded back in the ’80’s. We get to vote for him on Tuesday here in Vermont. Last night, I went out to Higher Ground to see the Wee Folkestra. I don’t have any of their music, but many members of the band played on this album.

5.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
6.) Foxy – Abbie Morin
7.) What’s In California? – Josh Glass
8.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone

I love that new Telephone song. Sean, from the band, played a great show last night at Radio Bean with his new band The Nancy Druids. I caught Josh Glass at the Marriott last Saturday and really enjoyed the show. He did a great version of that song. I caught the first set by Abbie Gail at Nectar’s last Saturday after Josh and loved it. OK, let’s play the last song from Red Flannel Hash.

9.) Where Do We Go? – Black Rabbit
10.) Affection – Guppyboy
11.) My New Mixtape – Eef
12.) Knucklehead – Screaming Broccoli

Classic from Borccoli. Such a fun song. Great new song from Eef. Guppy were a big influence on the Burlington scene in the ’90’s. Great song and album from Rabbit. I saw this band a while ago at Metal Monday and they are coming back to play Nectar’s this Monday. This is dedicated to my brother Ken who is going to the show with me.

13.) Descent Into The Maelstrom – Holy Grail
14.) No Way – Phantom Suns
15.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
16.) Finder – Rocketsled

Great cover of the Madelines song from Rocket. I haven’t seen As We Were for a while but always enjoy them when I do. Killer song from Phantom who have been playing a ton of shows lately. What a rocker from Grail. That should be fun on Monday. This next band come to town every year or so. They are coming back in May with a new album. Here is one of the new songs.

17.) Paycheck – Slingshot Dakota
18.) I Need A Raise – Cave Bees
19.) Morning Again – Doll Fight
20.) Yardsale – Lendway

I miss Lendway. Great rocker from Doll Fight. Don’t we all Cave Bees, don’t we all? Killer new song from Dakota. Is it May yet? Last week I played a song from the new Gregory Douglass album. I dug into it a bit more this week and really liked this one.

21.) The Great Wide – Gregory Douglass
22.) Never Cry – David Rosane and the Zookeepers
23.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
24.) This Machine – Invisible Homes

Never is another cool song from David. The lyrics suggested the Homes song, and Homes are playing The Monkey House tomorrow. Never also suggested the Jeremy Gilchrist song so I though it would be cool to line those up like that. OK, time for a couple more. Here is another new live song from When Particles Collide.

25.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
26.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

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. Let’s begin tonight with the title song from one of Burlington’s coolest artists. He’s moved away, but still comes back to play now and then.

1.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass
2.) As Glass – Wren Kitz
3.) Soul Piggy Bank – Swale
4.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists

It’s so cool that so many local artists got together to record this song as a boost to the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. It features Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, Marie Claire Johnson, and lots of others. Swale played a great show at Light Club Lamp Shop last Saturday and did a great version of that one. That’s a new song from Wren’s just released album For Evelyn. Great song from Gregory. I just ran into Abbie Gail since she just finished a US tour and arrived back in Burlington. Her band, Abbie Morin, will be at Nectar’s on Saturday. Here’s a live song from the road.

5.) Barstools – Abbie Morin
6.) Barstool Blues – Seth Yacavone Band
7.) The Call – Swillbillie
8.) Constant Disaster (live) – When Particles Collide

That’s a live version from Particles new album Live At The Sinclair. Great stuff from the rocking duo who will be on the road soon. Great song from a local band I have not yet caught. Seth did such a great job with the Neil Young songs at the WBKM birthday party last year. It’s cool to have a recording of that. Great song from Abbie. It’s time for the next song on Red Flannel Hash. I held off playing the album so I could start it so that this song would be appropriate. It’s chilly tonight, was 55 on Tuesday, was -13 (or so) on Saturday. It will be in the 40’s for the weekend. Well, for tonight this song is mostly true.

9.) It’s Cold – Black Rabbit
10.) Still Life Scene – Envy
11.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
12.) Endless Parts 1 & 2 – Elephants Of Scotland

What great versions of those Elephants songs. Those are from the live at Gettysburg album. The whole band is great, but how about the drumming and chime playing from Ornan McLean? Ornan is going through a tough time sine he lost his mother a couple of days ago and today is his birthday. I had to play a chunk of Elephants for him and had to play the song about him from one of his other bands. Best of luck and heal as soon as you can Ornan! Sean and Ann Mindell from Envy will be at Radio Bean next Wednesday in their new band The Nancy Druids. Great song from Rabbit. Last week I missed the Mountain Says No at the Monkey House, but just because I slacked, doesn’t mean you have to miss them.

13.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
14.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
15.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
16.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian

Killer song from Ninja. Great song from Phil from before he became affiliated. Great songs from Telephone and Mountain. This next song is about a crisis in America that necessitates the phrase Black Lives Matter.

17.) Blind Pigs – Rough Francis
18.) The Eldridge – Cameo Harlot
19.) Captain 20 – Barbacoa
20.) The Territory – Hana Zara

Great song from Hana’s 2015 album The North. Cool rocker from Barbacoa. Cameo were a great band that featured Paul Comegno on guitar and vocals. Now he is just playing guitar with Rough Francis. OK, let’s take the energy down a bit with a cool song.

21.) The Alchemist – Pours
22.) All Your Basis – Invisible Homes
23.) Kids – Wren Kitz
24.) Doris – Wren Kitz

Those last two are the closing songs and pieces of effects from Wren’s new album For Evelyn. Cool new song from Homes. Now, how will Sean Witters pull that one off live? Fun song from Pours. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
