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

intro

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?

before: Delirious – The Church Band

recording begins
Song before: Beware Of Darkness – George Harrison.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The Calendar says it’s close to Christmas but with it 50 degrees and raining, it sure does not feel like it. I guess it’s a good thing the world leaders are at least putting some plans into action to attempt to halt global warming. My song before the show tonight was from the concert for Bangladesh. On Saturday a bunch of local musicians will recreate the show at Higher Ground. I think I’m working, but will be there if I can. Tonight, let’s begin with some local artist playing Christmas songs. Let’s begin with one of my favorites.

1.) Happy X-mas (War Is Over) – Joshua Glass Music
2.) Hallelujah – Swale
3.) Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – Linda Bassick
4.) Carol of the Bells – Gordon Stone

Nice version of the classic by the super-talented Stone. Did you catch the version of that song with Stephen and Henry Rollins on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night? Check it out if you missed it! Great version of Rudolph by Linda Bassick. I love the lyric rewrite on the Cohen classic. Great song from Josh. Let’s keep going with more Christmas songs.

5.) It Came Upon A Midnight Clear – Electric Halo
6.) God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Viperhouse
7.) Silver Bells – Josh Glass
8.) Winter Wonderland – The N-Zones

That was a fun romp from the classic Burlington band. Another great song from Josh. Nice groove to the Viper song. Great interpretation from Halo, who feature Joe Adler and the music saw of Johnnie Day Durand. Let’s go back in time to the late ’80’s or early ’90’s when Burlington bands really came into their own.

9.) Rain – The Cuts
10.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
11.) So Nice – Ninja Custodian
12.) Let’s Bury Bob – Screaming Broccoli

Great rocker from the classic band. I love that Ninja song. I love that Decentz song. I had to play Rain due to the weather. OK, let’s get to the next song on Red Flannel Hash.

13.) Double Line – Black Rabbit
14.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No
15.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
16.) Beaten Down – Swale

The last time I listened to Pigs I though it has to mix into the Swale song. I’m psyched to see Francis at The Monkey House on New Year’s Eve! Killer Mountain song. Another classic from Rabbit. Swale just put out an EP with four Christmas songs, and are playing at the Monkey House tonight. I already played the fourth song on the album. Here are the other three.

17.) Just Another Day (Christmas) – Swale
18.) It’s Christmas – Swale
19.) Snow Again – Swale

Three new classics from one of the most wonderful bands in town. OK, let’s play some more classics from local bands.

20.) Santa Baby – Samara Lark Brown
21.) Frosty The Snowman – Construction Joe
22.) Jingle Bell Rock – Sarah Stickle
23.) The Christmas Song – Motel Brown

Just wonderful versions of classic songs. Here are some more.

24.) Little Drummer Boy – Aaron Flinn
25.) Merry Christmas Baby – Sandra Wright Band
26.) Oh Holy Night – Cait Hoffman
27.) Silent Night – Tammy Fletcher

Stunning solo vocal versions from Tammy and Cait. Nice groove to the Sandra song. Aaron is always so solid. OK, let’s play a few more then close with some regular local songs.

28.) White Christmas – Giovanina Bucci
29.) Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Greg Alexander
30.) Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – Scott Mangan

Three more absolute classics. OK, here is a song that always inspires me.

31.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
31.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
32.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
33.) In A Different Part Of The World – The Cuts

Cuts are showing a bit of Pinhead influence on that one. Killer song from Broccoli. Great new song from Homes. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I will be off the next two weeks to spend some time with my family. I want to say Happy Birthday to my brother Ken, since his birthday is Saturday. I will be back in 2016.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. I highlighted a couple of the artists who make our town great, one who just left and one who is still playing for us. I also highlighted one of the great institutions that have brought music to our town for decades.

Before: Sealine – The Church Band
The Man’s Too Strong – Dire Straits
recording begins

Song before: Orion – Jethro Tull

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight I want to highlight a couple of cool musicians who have brought so much to our town. I’ll get to that in a moment but first something cool happened earlier this week. I finally looked up in the sky and saw Orion. Despite the 50 degree temperatures today, you know winter is coming when Orion appears. This is my favorite local song about Orion.

1.) Stylus of Id – Somah
2.) Art Of Vandalay – Sad Turtle
3.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future

Justus Gaston plays guitar both in Sad Turtle and Wave. He’s a pretty cool guy and also plays drums in another cool band. I’ll get to that in a moment. For as long as I have been seeing and listening to music in town there has been a radio station from UVM that has taught people how to be DJ’s and has brought lots of underground music to any who want to listen. The have also done a stunning job of supporting local music for decades. Their local music show is called WRUV Exposure and happens every Wednesday. A few days ago the host, Dom the Barber, sent me a message that one of my favorite local bands would be playing live in the studio. He invited me to join them for the performance and to chat on the air in between songs. That happened yesterday, December 9th from 6:30-8pm. Dom sent me an mp3 of the show and I’m going to play the whole thing for you now. This band features Justus Gaston on drums and this is The Mountain Says No.

WRUV Exposure featuring The Mountain Says No playing live in their studio

4.) Long Term Sermon live – The Mountain Says No
5.) Who Could Say live – The Mountain Says No
6.) Iron And Metal live – The Mountain Says No
7.) Restaurant live – The Mountain Says No
8.) Christmas Sled studio version that Dom played – The Mountain Says No
9.) 3,000 live – The Mountain Says No
10.) Glazerbeam live – The Mountain Says No
11.) King Grifter live – The Mountain Says No
12.) I Know Right live – The Mountain Says No
13.) Ricky The Rider live – The Mountain Says No
14.) Come And Decide live – The Mountain Says No
15.) The Bomb live – The Mountain Says No

Hey guys, Tim here back in the studio. I think I played that whole thing for a few reasons. That is exactly what WRUV sounds like and has always sounded like. I really wanted to thank Justus for all of his contributions to our music scene, and to thanks Andrew Frappier, Ben Maddox, and Jedd Kettler for the same reason. I did it because that was a band playing a full live set that happened in town yesterday so is the sound of Burlington by definition. I did it mostly because I had it as one file and I really wanted to play both new Mountain songs on my show. Up next, I want to thank another person who has put a ton of music into our town. His name is Justin Gonyea and he has promoted a ton of shows at 242 Main and has played in a few bands. He’s off to Seattle and we wish him the best of luck. I’ll play a bunch of his music as a thank you for all he has added. But, before that, let’s play the second song on Red Flannel Hash, the album I am playing all the way through, song for song, week after week.

16.) Too Good – Black Rabbit
17.) Buy Two Get None Free demo – Crime Scene
18) Hello World – Screaming Skull
19.) Black Oil – Doom Service
20.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Justin played in Doom, Skull and did the Crime Scene thing with Bobby Hackney Jr.., Matthew Kimball and a few others just before leaving town. Thank you Justin!!!! Well, 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.org. I played a couple of new songs and a couple of new to me songs.

Weeping Willow – Persian Claws
Armadillo – Swale
Preparing To Fly – The Waterboys

recording begins

Song before: Falling Farther In – October Project

promo

intro

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I enjoyed the day off last week and spent it with family and friends and friends that really are family. It’s great to find wonderful people and let them be part of your life. I’ve been thinking about seeing music and seeing people on the stage and you always want to think the best of them and hope they are wonderful people pursuing their dreams and art. Sometimes you don’t know people at all. Sometimes you get to know them a little, sometimes a lot. On rare occasions you get to know someone very deeply and get to see their delicate and powerful soul and find the staggering beauty in that. Tonight I want to start with a set from one of the most beautiful souls I have had the chance to know.

1.) Robin’s Song – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey
3.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey

Those are all staggeringly beautiful and strong songs from the Kissing Circle era and created and performed by the magnificent Peg Tassey. This next performer is pretty wonderful too.

4.) New York My Lovely – Joshua Glass Music
5.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
6.) Megan’s Song – Hana Zara
7.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith

2015 seems to be the year of change. That is a song about change from Maryse Smith who is leaving town. Hopefully, she will come back and visit from time to time. Hana moved back to Nebraska but sure put her mark on this town. I’m sure she will come and visit sometime too. Great songs from Milton and Josh. I saw this next artist the night before Thanksgiving at Radio Bean and greatly enjoyed his set.

8.) I Know – Dom the Barber
9.) Goner – REDadmiral
10.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
11.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy

I loved seeing Envy back in the ’90’s. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell, from the band, are in a cool new band called The Nancy Druids, who played a killer set after Dom that night at the Bean. Sean used to play with RT. Fun new song from Admiral. Nice ditty about aliens from Dom. Last time I finished playing the Phil Yates & The Affiliates album No Need To Beg, so now it’s time to start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week. For the next few weeks we will go all the way through Red Flannel Hash by Black Rabbit.

12.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
13.) Long Term Sermon – The Mountain Says No
14.) My New Mixtape – Eef
15.) Maleman – Eef

Classic song from the ’90’s in Burlington. It was cool to see Eef get back together to play a show last Friday at ArtsRiot. They played old ones like Male and new ones like mix, which is about making a mixtape for the girl you like, you know, that thing we did back in the ’80’s and ’90’s. Mountain played that show also and did a killer version of Sermon. Great song from Rabbit. More to come in the next several weeks. OK, let’s keep rocking.

16.) Destroying Everything They see – Blue Button
17.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
18.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
19.) The Drone – The Cush

Those are four of the most intense songs ever played in Burlington. It’s not a complete list, but there is a lot of greatness in that set. OK, let’s keep rocking.

20.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
21.) If You Get Lost – Swale
22.) Glorkian Warrior Sleepytime – James Kochalka Superstar

I just got a bunch of Kochalka so expect to hear lots more soon. Great song from Swale. Killer new song by Francis that is unfortunately still timely. Maybe someday we really will make it a summer of love. OK, let’s step back in time.

23.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
24.) So They Say – The New Siberians
25.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox

I love the smooth and strong sound of Vox. I just love that new Siberians song. I love that classic from Decentz. I love this last song too.

26.) Bad Oasis – farm

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.org. I played a lot of classic Burlington music, but mixed in a few newer songs too.

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…

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s going to be a bit of a short show, since the WBKM birthday party starts at Nectar’s at 9:30 and my show runs 9-11. I’m going to hang out for 30 minutes or so, then play some music from last years party. I had a great time last Saturday at the Radio Bean birthday party, where 80 or so bands played. I caught a lot and had a great time. Let’s begin with one of the bands who played a killer set in the afternoon.

1.) Waiting For You – Swale
2.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
3.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
4.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith

Maryse played a killer set at the party. I did not make it late enough to see Kat and the soul band, but did catch a fantastic set with a woman named Maggie and Kat Wright and Bob Wagner. That’s a new song from Bob that he just sent me. Thanks Bob!! Hmmmm, Swale. OK, let’s continue on through No Need To Beg. There are just a couple of more songs to play until I get to choose another album to play all the way through.

5.) Flicker (Song For Clara) – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
7.) Amble Down – Crater Lake
8.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains
9.) Hit – Blue Button

I missed BB’s set at Radio Bean, but did catch them with Aspero Siacos and Heavy Plains at Finnegan’s the night before. Killer show. There was an article on Noisey about the local music scene that talked about local bands with links to listen to their music. The only one I did not know was Crater Lake so I thought I should check them out. Pretty good stuff. Colin played a great version of Syd at the Bean birthday party. Lovely song from Phil Yates and the band. OK, I’m going to head over to the party. I think Joe Moore is on soon, or now. Here is some music from last year’s party. The first few will be rock songs from Bob Wagner and the Book ‘Em Blues Band. When it starts sounding like Neil Young, that will be Seth Yacovone Band playing as Real Old and Insane Donkey. See you next week.

10.) Intro/Have You Ever Loved A Woman – Book ‘Em Blues Band
11.) Crossroads – Book ‘Em Blues Band
12.) Little Wing – Book ‘Em Blues Band
13.) Bamboozled By Love – Book ‘Em Blues Band
14.) Rocking In The Free World – Real Old and Insane Donkey
15.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Real Old and Insane Donkey
16.) Powderfinger – Real Old and Insane Donkey
17.) Down By The River – Real Old and Insane Donkey
18.) Like A Hurricane – Real Old and Insane Donkey
19.) Hey Hey, My My – Real Old and Insane Donkey
20.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit (since when after Joe’s set I popped back to the station and noticed that the players had shortened the time and the show was going to end early)

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It had a bit of a regal feel and highlighted a lot of the music from last week and this coming weekend. It was also seasonally appropriate, even if the weather wasn’t.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a super warm, maybe in the 70’s, day and it’s warm this evening. A lot of people are out and about and enjoying the night. Today is the 5th of November, the day Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament. As we have evolved over the years, there is less of a need for such drastic action. In fact, all we have to do is elect reasonable and compassionate and smart people, and we could have a great government. Maybe one day. Tonight, let’s begin with Burlington itself. It was founded in 1865 and was a major lumber mill port that brought wood from Quebec to the eastern US. Early on, it was called the Queen City of New England. Let’s begin with some Burlington music about queens.

1.) Rock ‘n Roll Queen – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) We Rock Out 2 Queen – Rue Mevlana
3.) Queen Of Hostility – Doll Fight
4.) I’d Hate To Be Me – Queen Tangerine

Some of the regal music from Burlington. It’s interesting to see how we have evolved. We began by needing a strong leader, and have moved to a system were we can govern ourselves more and more. If we are cool about it, we have a lot of potential. OK, last Friday I caught a ton of cool music. I started with this band, although the set I caught was them covering the Elvis Costello album Blood and Chocolate. This is the next song from No Need To Beg.

5.) Drinking For Two – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
7.) Singing – Arc Iris
8.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
9.) I Think I’m Turning Into A Robot – Wave of the Future

I began the night at The Skinny Pancake to see Phil’s first set, then hustled to Light Club Lamp Shop to catch Maryse Smith‘s stunning set. Arc Iris followed and were amazing as always. I hustled over to Finnegan’s and missed Mountain, but caught some of Wave’s wonderful set, including that fun song. There’s a fun show at Finnegan’s tomorrow with some of the guys in Rough Francis playing as Aspero Siacos, and a couple of other cool bands, like this one.

10.) Hungry – Heavy Plains
11.) Destroying Everything They See – Blue Button
12.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

It will be interesting to see what AS sound like, but other two will certainly be killer. Saturday is the day Radio Bean has it’s birthday. As always they will have bands play from 8am to 2am, with about 15 minutes per band. This next band always kick it off.

13.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
14.) Toejam – The Toes
15.) The Mime – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
16.) One More Sunset – Violet Ultraviolette

I’m psyched to see all of those bands play. I’m psyched to see these next ones too.

17.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles
18.) Gonna Stay Up All Night Long – The Eames Brothers
19.) Pauses – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
20.) Crow King – Binger

I’m sorry I missed Binger playing the Scooby Doo show last weekend but am psyched to catch up with them this Saturday. All of those bands rocked, but there will be a lot of music played that day. Here are some of the mellower bands that will play.

21.) Guitar – Michael Chorney and Hollar General
22.) Windy Pines – Kat Wright and Brett Hughes
23.) Matter Of Time – Eric George
24.) Puff The Magic Dragon – Linda Bassick

I’m not sure if Linda is playing kids songs or older people’s songs or both, but it will be fun to find out. I may have to catch Eric for the first time. Kat and Brett always sound nice. Sweet song from Michael. This next song is by Caroline Marie, who has played every Bean Birthday.

25.) Once Upon – Vedora
26.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
27.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
28.) The Next Instead – Swale

I’m thoroughly excited to see Swale already, is it Saturday yet?. Kat and the band are always great. I finally got the see Emily play joke in Barret. I bet he plays that one, what with the Radio Bean references and all. Killer song from Caroline. Songs 13 to 28 are just a tiny hint of what that day will sound like. Is it Saturday yet??? OK, let’s end where we began, with another song from the Queen herself, then I will say goodbye.

29.) I Remember/The Jam – Peg Tassey
30.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

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

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Yesterday was the day they used as the long future date in Back To The Future Part II, October 21, 2015. Let’s begin with some local music about those implications.

1.) Flux Capacitor – Wave of the Future
2.) 1.21 Jigawatts – Wave of the Future
3.) All I Want Is A Hoverboard – Wave of the Future

Wave have so many great songs about Back To The Future. They are playing October 30 at Finnegan’s with The Mountain Says No. Last week I saw two really cool bands at The Skinny Pancake and enjoyed them both in different ways. I’ll begin with one from each.

4.) Who’s Fault Was That? – The Snaz
5.) Sound Island – Vows
6.) Wiser – And The Kids
7.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music

Josh was just at Waterworks Food + Drink and I’m bummed I missed the show. ATK just released their new album on vinyl. Check it out if you are into that. Vows and Snaz played killer versions of those songs last week. This guy is playing at Nectar’s tomorrow both solo acoustic and with an electric band.

8.) The Singing Of The Song – Seth Yacovone Band
9.) Release The Beast – The Mountain Says No
10.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!

Waylon can rock pretty hard, especially when playing that one. I’m psyched to see Mountain tomorrow!! OK, here is the next song on No Need To Beg. This is one of the great rock songs to come from Burlington.

11.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
12.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
13.) Still Life Scene – Envy
14.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains

Heavy are playing at The Monkey House Sunday. They were great the last time I saw them. Classic from Envy. Killer Rabbit song and great song from Phil Yates and the band. Let’s keep rocking.

15.) Black And Red – ROUGH FRANCIS
16.) A Place Both Wonderful And Strange – Vultures of Cult
17.) Christmas In Afghanistan – The Wards
18.) Green Peaks/Dark Valleys – Get A Grip
19.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Doom and Grip are playing at Higher Ground Sunday as part of Colin’s Roar a benefit for Cystic FIbrosis. Killer song from the Wards and still unfortunately appropriate. Cool song from Vulture and great song from Francis. This next set is about our understanding of God or the Gods.

20.) These Stories – When Particles Collide
21.) Hermaphroditus – Rue Mevlana
22.) Dear God – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

One song about asking God to help you get out of something and a couple about the ancient Greeks and others. Big Joe passed away 10 years ago and in a couple of weeks the Unknown Blues Band will play a show in his honor.

23.) Every Time I hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band
24.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho
25.) All My Life – Wide Wail
26.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis

4 classics from the ’90’s. In Vermont, there are lots of wonderful apples around. It was such a beautiful day today and I had to run errands and drove around with the windows down.

27.) Windows Down – Lendway
28.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox

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

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight, I’m going to select a few of the great artists who have played in town and let you listen to a few of their songs to let you really get to know them. Let’s begin with a woman who has been making magnificent music for a long lovely time.

1.) When She Sleeps – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) My Baby Goes Straight For Ecstasy – Peg Tassey
3.) Rosary Beads – Peg Tassey
4.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey

Four great songs from a woman with a strong voice, great words and a great spirit that lets them out. This next set of music features most of the great musicians of the ’80’s. This was recorded a long time ago but the musicianship is great and the consistency of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders was nicely shown at the debate on Tuesday. He’s always been fighting for the poor and middle class and is doing so at the top of his game right now.

5.) Where Have All The Flowers Gone? – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont Musicians
6.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont Musicians
7.) This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont Musicians

Run Bernie Run!! It’s so exciting that he is in the race and getting a chance to fight for the little guy. This next artist is on the side of the little guy too.

8.) Oh Susannah – Linda Bassick
9.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
10.) One From Two – Linda Bassick
11.) You Are My Sunshine – Linda Bassick

She’s a great musician and a great supporter of local music. OK, it’s time for the next song on No Need To Beg. This song was the one that made my decision to play the album all the way through. A local critic called the song cringe worthy, but Phil Yates has been undaunted and plays it now and then. After my father passed, I had not made it out to music for a while and one night I went to Nectar’s and saw Phil Yates & The Affiliates. This song really stood out for me, and that was the moment I knew I would add it to the list of albums I’ve played all the way through.

12.) Masterpiece – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
13.) Three Cheers – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates

Phil writes and performs lots of fun and delightful songs. I hope you enjoyed those as much as I did. Last Saturday I ran into Phil and Marc Scarano who were at Light Club Lamp Shop to see Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall. Jane was in town for a couple of days and I had to go check out Bad Smell, her project with Raph. Jane has been in a ton of bands and has really added to the sound of Burlington.

15.) The Downfall Of Paris – Jane Boxall Percussion
16.) AV6 – Bad Smell
17.) Floating – Vedora
18.) Tic Toc – Doll Fight
19.) Alienation – Black Rabbit

Whether it’s the sultry sound of Vedora, the oddly fun Bad Smell, her work on marimba, her drumming for Steady Betty, or her blistering punk rock with Doll and Rabbit, she is just incredible. OK, I had been meaning to see this next band for ages, and finally caught up with them Friday at Radio Bean.

20.) Wino – REDadmiral
21.) Bullet – REDadmiral
22.) Stop – REDadmiral

Great stuff. If you like that go check them out tomorrow at The Monkey House. This was the first local band that I ever truly loved, and still do.

23.) The Movie – Ninja Custodian
24.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
25.) Las Vegas

Since I was talking about the debate earlier, I just had to play Vegas. This next singer opened the night Saturday at the Lamp Shop.

26.) Great Filter – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
27.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist
28.) The Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist

One from his Causality album and two new ones. OK, let’s hear one more from Jane to take us out.

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
