I just got back from my local music radio show on Wbkm Dot Org. I had one stunning mix and played some sweet songs.

Song before: Wondering Where The Lions Are – Bruce Cockburn

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been thinking about eternity and the nature of what we are recently. It’s weird to think of the spirit that is you is so tied to a physical body, and that large wonderful body would be almost nothing if you took away the water. Let’s play some songs about water and think about what it means to be alive. This is Left One In The Rain by Alice Austin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
2.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
3.) Waterlanding – Swale
4.) Nothing But The Water II – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Great song from Grace talking about one of the uses of water, it’s a great thing to balance the element of fire. The Swale and Cush songs have such a lovely watery feel. (note: the mix from Orange into Landing was seamless). Of course, rain is a very important iteration of water. OK, let’s move on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes,

5.) Many Things & Many Scenes – Joe Adler
6.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell
7.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson
8.) Promises – Vedora

Great song from Vedora. Matt has a side project every Monday in February at Radio Bean from 7-8. Last week I worked until 7:30 and missed it. Rats. Great classic songs from Burlington’s past with Joe and Zoot, and great song from Burlington’s present by Joe. This next singer is playing the Bean on Saturday at 7. I’ll see if I can make it if I get out early enough.

9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
10.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies
11.) Kill The Lights – Monoprix
12.) Change My Heart – Rusty Belle

Rusty are from North Hampton but come to Burlington often. They are playing the Skinny Pancake on Friday. Cool song from Brett Hughes and co. The Anna song would have fit nicely into the first set. This next band is playing The Monkey House tomorrow.

13.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness

Great band name and sweet song. Hover were a ’90’s Burlington band. It’s almost time for the And The Kids new album and tour. If you liked the Hover song, you’ll like this next set too!

17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
19.) Throw Me Away – Spill
20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

That song used to rock Burlington hard and often. I love all of those rocking songs that helped Burlington to keep expanding the sound of our town. I’m very psyched for this show next week at the Flynn Theatre. These three bands will be rocking out.

21.) Scream – Sistas in the Pit
22.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
23/) Freakin’ Out – Death World Wide

I’m sending that set out to my brother Ken who will go to the show with me. OK, let’s head back to classic Burlington.

24.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
25.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
26.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
27.) Geograph (2015 mix) – Elephants of Scotland

Ending where we began, on the edge of sea and sand. Ken and I, and most of the elephants, will see the lights of Montreal this summer when we go see Rush. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from tonight’s local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I pulled our a few gems from the past and played a couple of songs that are barely a week old.

Songs before:Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
Let Us Go – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cold night in Burlington but a few intrepid souls are out and about and not letting it get them down. Here is a song I got a couple of days ago, but have been enjoying live for a few months now. This is Burn It Down Bernadette by Phil Yates & The Affiliates on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) Blue Light Blue – Heavy Plains
3.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

I love that song and had to play it out of the Plains song. That’s another new song from Luke Awtry‘s new band. Great song by Phil Yates. I’m so happy to have new songs of theirs. Let’s play the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes. This is one of my favorites.

4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
5.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
6.) This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

Nice reggae feel to the Woody Guthrie classic. I think about the idea of pluralism we strive for in the United States and many other countries. It’s terrible when someone uses violence to try and silence an artistic voice. The response to the killings in Paris have been some incredible works of art that will touch millions of souls. The picture of the pencil with the words “This Machine Kills Fascists”, which is what Woody had written on his guitar, really hit me. The great part about art is it does not kill people, just bad ideas. Senator Sanders wages peace, so that is why I played that song. I love that song from Western!!! Last Saturday I made it out to The Monkey House and saw great sets from Black Rabbit and Dino Bravo VT. The Mountain Says No did a stunning job opening the show, but they don’t have anything recorded yet so I can’t play any of their songs. Instead, I’ll play a song from the soundtrack of Ben Maddoxs underwater adventures.

7.) Straight Outta Kill Kare – I See Fish People
8.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck (live) – Chin Ho!
9.) No Way – Phantom Suns

I’ve really got to get to know Suns better. Great song. Classic couple of songs from the mighty Chin Ho! This next song has been running through my head a lot, so I’ll play it again.

10.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
11.) I-90 East – ROUGH FRANCIS
12.) Freakin Out – Death World Wide

I’m so psyched about the show at the Flynn with Death, Francis and others. It’s going to rock! Sometimes the news gets too heavy. I mean you need to stay informed, but after a certain amount of understanding the world, sometimes you need a distraction.

13.) Distraction – When Particles Collide
14.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
15.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
16.) Bionic – The Red Telephone

Love the lyric in the RT song. I was feeling fired up the other day and had it running through my head. They used to rock Burlington with that one. Great song from Julia Austin and Alice Austin from the days after Zola Turn. Can’t waif for the new Kids album. Great song from Particles. This band seem to play for a while, go quiet for a while then play again. They’re around and this is a cool song.

17.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
18.) All Around – Hover
19.) Let The World Turn – Death.

I hope they play that one when they play the Flynn! Great song from Brad Searles old band. I love this next song, and love the live version just a little bit more.

20.) TFAY (live) – Elephants of Scotland
21.) Ornan’s Song – The Dirty Blondes
22.) 1.21 Jigawats – Wave of the Future

Love that song. Their guitar player plays drums for Mountain Says No and it was cool that most of Wave came to the show to support him. Ornan McLean plays drums for the Blondes and Elephants. OS was dedicated to my brother Ken who loves that song. Earlier today I asked for requests and got four. I’ll have to hold the Red Admiral until I’ve listened more but these next three are dedicated to Marc Scarano, David Jarvis Mark Crowther, and Kitty Kindbud.

23.) Flight Of The Alligator – Cave Bees
24.) Paper Train – Dave Jarvis
25.) You Can’t Always Get What You Want – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds

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

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played with the working man theme a bit with songs before, during, and after.

Songs before: Tonight’s The Night pt1 – Neil Young
Weeping Willow – Persian Claws

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I love to go to the clubs to see live music and this is a song I’ve been dancing to for ages. Today, I get to play it for you. This is Everyone Likes To by Swale on Wbkm, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
2.) We’re Closed! – Blue Button
3.) Never Enough – Zola Turn

Another great song from Zola and the third song on Ninja Jane. I’ve always love the dancing maybe line. That angst of asking is it ever enough reminded me of the frustration Jason Cooley expressed in the song We’re Closed! There is also a great line about trying to get in, in the Swale song.
Most of us work for a living, and there are good and bad parts of that. This next set is dedicated to everyone who dreams of not working, but goes to work anyway.

4.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail
5.) I Need A Raise – Cave Bees
6.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
7.) I Quit – Blotto

Blotto are from Albany and played a ton of fun songs. That is one of those songs that everyone understands. I loved seeing them at Hunts, a long time ago. The line about wanting to quit in the Rabbit song inspired the set, then it made me think of Blotto. Once that was set, the Cave Bees song was a natural, especially with Rebekah Whitehurst;s killer performance with Blue Button at The Monkey House last week. Pooloop and Dino Bravo VT also rocked hard that night. I needed one more and asked on Facebook. Eric Olsen suggested the WW, which was perfect. OK, it’s a beautiful summer in Vermont, but that also means mosquitoes.

8.) Giant Mosquitoes – Cold Sweat
9.) Summertime – Peg Tassey MUSIC and the Velvet Ovum Band
10.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
11.) Hangover Dreaming – Gorgon
12.) Mad Mary Jones – THE VACANT LOTS

The Vacant Lots used to play in town all the time, but now they have put out the Departure album this Tuesday, and are touring with Brian Jonestown Massacre and playing in London and Glasgow. I got this yesterday and had to play it today. Gorgon will play the Monkey House next week and I have to get out to see them. I love that Doll Fight song. It is summer and the Peg song describes it beautifully. Here’s another fun song from Burlington’s past.

13.) Rudy’s Kookie – The Spring Heeled Jacks something happened and a wail of feedback happened. I dumped the song and went into
14.) 5-30 – Hover
15.) Rudy’s Kookie – The Spring Heeled Jacks (played fine)
16.) Sound Drivers – Endless Jags
17.) Paint This City – The Vacant Lots

I listened to their new album this morning and that one jumped at me. Another great song from the Jags. Sorry about the feedback. I had to swap the Jacks and Hover. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my 44th local music internet only radio show on WBKM. I had a bunch of new music to load in, but had a problem after the second disc (still stuck in the computer). I improvised. I’m still feeling a bit off or I would be at Manhattan Pizza seeing Kairos and Wave of the Future, I think Shark Victim would have finished their set before my show ended.

Song before: Moongirl – Stellastarr

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Let’s go way back to the 1970″s for I’m Ready by the N-Zones on WBKM and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) I’m Ready – The N-Zones
2.) On My Way – Hover
3.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
4.) Folsom Prison Blues – Zoot Wilson

Zoot is a legend in this town. He did great stuff on his own and with the N-Zones. Wide Wail rocked us hard for a few years. Brad Searles is a great guy and Hover always sounded intriguing. When I was very young, my parents took me to Memorial Auditorium to see Johnny Cash. I will always remember that. This next artist has been playing her heart out for years. She has been writing great songs and recently made a very wonderful video. This song is appropriate for the cold weather in Burlington tonight.

5.) Shiver – Sarah Blacker
6.) Naomi’s Back – Fire The Cannons
7.) White Lizard – Shark Victim

SV are likely just about to hit the stage at Manhattan Pizza. If I wasn’t here, that’s where I would be. FTC used to rock out town like crazy!!! I love all of the effort Sarah put into the song and video. Next, let’s play the last song from To A Star In The Yard.

8.) Blink And We Miss – Alice Austin
9.) The Day You Left This Earth – Split Tongue Crow
10.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western

Love seeing GW play that song. They really let it rock at the end when they do it live. Great song from STC. Next up is a band with one of the best names ever.

11.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
12.) Walkingincircles – Raq
13.) A New Kind Of Blue – The Cush

Love the power and grace of the Cush. Raq recently played at Nectar’s. It’s time for me to be on my way. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from local music radio show number 11. I still need to tighten the dialog, but I will work on it.

Song before: Beware of Darkness – George Harrison

Peg Tassey WBKM promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Last week I finished playing the Vedora album, this week I’m starting on New Appreciation for Sunshine by The Cush. Here is the opening song on WBKM, Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Searching for the sun – The Cush
2.) Walking in Circles – Raq
3.) Here comes the sun – Aaron Flinn

Talked about the George Harrison cover night at Radio Bean last Friday. Talked about Aaron playing a sweet solo for While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and a nice version of Beware of darkness, but blanked on mentioning any of the other wonderful performers. Said that Aaron did Here Comes The Sun Richie Havens style, and said what a wonderful performer Richie was. Said I don’t know a lot about Raq, but Mike Luoma kept saying they were good. I listened to that song, liked it, and loved the lyric about don’t fool me and get me out into the sunshine, it’s blinding me. The lyric made me want to play it out of the Cush song. Speaking of walking in circles, Waking Windows is coming to Winooski this weekend. Last weekend, I did the Harrison show and the Vedora show at Manhattan Pizza on Friday, and Max Krauss’ party on Saturday. Some great bands, like Black Rabbit, played some great music.

4.) Tubar Tubar – Black Rabbit
5.) I regret – Chin Ho!
6.) Charlie – Hover
7.) Gentleman – Plan B

Talked about seeing Plan B at Nectar’s in the ’90’s and loving the song with the blunt chorus. Talked about how Brad Searles did so much for Burlington over the years, and how he played in bands such as Hover. Great song from one of the great Burlington bands, Chin Ho! Don’t know what Tubar Tubar means, but love yelling it when seeing them live. Had to choose, since Max was having a party, and at the same time, Blue Button and Dino Bravo were playing. I had to make a choice. I saw good music, but missed good music too. Chris Farnsworth plays in Dino, so here’s him playing in Lobot

8.) An intervention of sorts – Lobot
9.) Opium spy thrill – Ninja Custodian
10.) Nowhere feels like home – Fire the Cannons
11.) Its real again – Zola Turn

Talked about Zola and how girls can rock as hard as the boys. Talked about loving Fire and how, one time, Johnny Aquadora was playing the drums so hard, and he threw a drumstick and it slid on the floor into my foot. I picked it up and still have it. It’s pretty chewed up, he hits really hard. Talked about loving Ninja and Chris’ playing. Talked about how scary it is when someone gets lost and how wonderful when they get found. Talked about how Mother’s day coming up. Said Happy Mother’s Day to my mom.

12.) Mother’s OK – Split Tongue Crow
13.) Where are you tonight? – Lonestar Chain

Talked about the sheet talent in Lonestar, Dedicated the STC song to anyone who has ever got the news that their Mother’s OK. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week. Shall we?
