I’ve had to prerecord my shows recently to match up the Net signal with the FM signal. Tonight’s show will go as follows.

Song before: Let’s Go Crazy – Prince



From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  I had to prerecord last weeks show so on Wednesday I saw the Church and then was gutted to hear that Prince had passed away on Thursday.  I had a ton of respect for him and was blown away the one time I saw him.  Both The Monkey House and Higher Ground have tribute nights to Prince coming up soon.  And, if Prince’s loss did not leave you cold enough, Vermont got a nice little snowstorm on Tuesday.  That’s such a Vermont thing to have happen.  It’s kind of wild to see flowers in bloom and covered in snow.  Local artist Jeremy Gilchrist took some cool pictures of the phenomena so let’s begin tonight with one of his songs.

1.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist
2.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara
3.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue
4.) Let’s Move – Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band

That’s such a great song from Kat and the band.  I can’t wait for the new album.  That’s a cool song from Cricket.  They are playing on Sunday at the Radio Bean, if you want to check them out.  That’s such a powerful song from Hana.  Great song from Jeremy.  OK, let’s play the next song from Callisto.

5.) Wishing Well – Alpenglow
6.) Stay – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Presence – Satori Bob
8.) Better Half – Abbie Morin

Abbie is recording a Live At The Fort show on Thursday night, tonight, at the Skinny Pancake.  Satori are a combination of John Baumann and Bob Gagnon.  John used to play that song at coffee shops all around Burlington.  Bob still plays all around Vermont.  I can’t wait until Slingshot come to town on May 10th.  Yea.  Great rocker from Alpenglow.  On Friday Binger release their new album at ArtsRiot.  Here is one of the new songs:

9.) If I Knew – Binger
10.) Sequoia I – Binger
11.) Sequoia II – Binger
12.) Sequoia III – Binger
13.) Strings – Bingr

That was another new Binger song.  The middle three were from their last EP.  OK, usually I play music by Vermont musicians but for this next set I will play some songs about Vermont.

14.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson
15.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
16.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
17.) Hallelujah The Hills – Hallelujah The Hills

Great Vermont references in that song.  Lindy used to always be the second band on at the Radio Bean birthday party, though not for the last couple of years.  I love the Burlington imagery in the Bern song.  Such a classic from Willie.  So, the HTH song was from an older album, but they just released a new one called A Band Is Something To Figure Out.  On May 12 Swale will head to Boston to play a show with HTH, so here is a song from the new album.

18.) Hassle Magnet – Hallelujah The Hills
19.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
20.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
21.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho

Classics from Chin and Broccoli.  Burlington’s music scene became so great back in the ’90’s and has stayed that way.  Great rocker from Swale.  I love that new Hills song.  OK, there is time for a few more.  Let’s keep rocking.

22.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
23.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
24.) New Age Woman – Pinhead

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

25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit


Songs After: Crucifix Corner – Fish

Emerald – Ace Frehley

Purple Rain – Prince

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It had a nice groove.

Song before October – U2



From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a beautiful fall evening in Burlington. Let’s start with a band who used to play in town and have a new album done, but not yet in my hands. This is from their first ep. This is Jet Pilot High by The Red Telephone on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Jet Pilot High – The Red Telephone
2.) 1965 – The New Siberians
3.) Satellite – Guster

Ryan Miller played a set last Friday at Radio Bean in between Swale sets. He played that song on acoustic guitar, talked Joe Adler into playing drums, and taught Amanda Gustafson the keyboard riff. It was a fun time watching it come together. Great song from the Siberians, who should have some new songs soon. Yea! I loved Swale’s sets last Friday. Here is another one from their new album The Next Instead.

4.) Before The Night – Swale
5.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
6.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

Great rocker from Joe’s new album. And The Kids played the show after Swale’s second set and brought a dedicated crowd. Keep an eye on them. I may head to The Monkey House on Saturday to check out this band.

7.) Shut Up – Gorgon
8.) Cookie Jar – Astrocat
9.) The Process – Pinhead

Classic Burlington band. Astrocat are playing the Monkey show too and that song sounded like it would go great into the Pinhead. Here is the next song from the Anachronist ep Row.

10.) Mary – Anachronist
11.) Mary – Plan B
12.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn

Zola and Plan are classic Burlington bands. Lots of great rock in both Marys. Let’s quieten things down a little.

13.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
14.) You Are Not The Photograph – Swale
15.) Hollywood – Lendway

Great song by a classic Burlington band. Killer Eric Olsen guitar work in the Swale song. I listened to the whole Roots In The Rabbit Hole album today and loved this one.

16.) Calypskango – Binger
17.) Grounded – Invisible jet
18.) WalkingInCircles – Raq

I love that song. I was dancing around the studio and had the volume cranked. Great stuff from Jet. This next band are hoping to get on a cruise or open for a great bands festival, or both.

19.) Endless (pt 2) – Elephants of Scotland
20.) Afraid Of Sunlight – Marillion
21.) Going For The One – Yes (official)

I could hear Elephants open for the 2015 Marillion weekend, or play on the 2015 Cruise to the Edge with Yes, and lots of other prog bands. Links below if you would like to vote for them. Yes was live from 2004 in Essex Jct, and Marillion once played club Toast as a trio. Since we’re a little spiritual, and out of town anyway…

22.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks (AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
23.) Buttonz – Binger

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



Song after: The Great Unraveling – Fish



Radio Show 80 Thursday September 25, 2014 9-11pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG   Leave a comment




I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I had a fun idea for a theme and pulled it off nicely.

Second song before: A Glimmer – Queen Tangerine

Song before: Heroes (live) – King Crimson



From our small city to the great big word, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight I will speak a bit about the expanding and contracting nature of music, but on this cool autumn night, if you want to go for a walk, it would be good to put on your overcoat. This is Swale on Wbkm, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Overcoat – Swale
2.) Megaphone – Joshua Glass
3.) The Victory – And The Kids

And The Kids played a killer set at The Monkey House last Monday. Lots of Burlington’s finest musicians were there in the audience, including Josh. I really liked that song that I got from his page. This time of the year always makes me think of the Swale song. Last week, I finished the last song from Zola Turn’s Ninja Jane. The next album I will play all the way through, one song per week, is the EP Row from Anachronist.

4.) Big Enough – Anachronist
5.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
6.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil and the band are playing two sets at the 4 Quarters brewery, in Winooski, tomorrow. The second set could be “interesting”. They start at 7. Swale’s 12th birthday party with And The Kids at Radio Bean is tomorrow at 9. It will be tough to make both with that timing. Also Gregory Douglas and Josh Glass are playing tomorrow in Winooski at Oak 45. Great song from Ninja! I caught this next singer last Saturday at Radio Bean. He did a great version of this.

7.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker
8.) Tell me – Linda Bassick
9.) Abiline – The Lonestar Chain
10.) Time In Space – The Cush

Lonestar just announced a show in November at Radio Bean! Yea. I hope that means a Cush show and a Dwellers show if Burette Douglas and Gabrielle Douglas are in town. Friend of the show, Linda is a great musician and a super person. Yesterday, I listened to the end or a radio show from Soho England where THE VACANT LOTS spent a lot of time with the host and played some cool songs including some of their own. This was one they played.

11.) Never Satisfied – The Vacant Lots
12.) Madrid Spain – The Lestons
13.) Paper Train – David L. Jarvis

Dave used to play all around town and is back in the neighborhood and just played a show in Wilmington with Mark Crowther as ‘Nuther Mother Brothers. It’s great to have them back rocking and I hope they come to town soon. I had to play that song from the Lestons because guitarist Matthew Stephen Perry‘s new band Dino Bravo is playing at Club Metronome at 11, and the Lots started their European tour in Spain. Up next is a suite of songs from a new album I’m trying to wrap my head around.

14.) Sequoia 1 – Binger
15.) Sequoia 2 – Binger
16.) Sequoia 3 – Binger

Nice lyrics about starting from roots and growing. Nice ability to be comfortable with almost any musical style. It’s autumn in Vermont. We don’t have Sequoia’s but we have apple trees and it’s harvest season.

17.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis Band
18.) 2 Hot 2 Be A Prostitute – The Lestons
19.) 6 AM – The Vacant Lots

I think I saw something saying the Lots might play town at the BCA center in October. They are out touring Europe, having songs mixed by Sonic Boom and putting out singles with Alan Vega. Way to live the dream Lots. I did not know the Lestons back in the day, but Matt’s next band, Party Star, used to play that song all the time. If the Cush come back to town, they should have a new album. Here’s one from their last.

20.) We Are The Beautiful Sunsets – The Cush
21..) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain
22.) One From Two – Linda Bassick
23.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

Milton played a killer version of that last Saturday at Radio Bean. He used a foot pedal to fill out the sound and his voice and guitar to drive the song. Great song from Linda, who also plays trumpet on some of the Phil Yates songs.

24.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
25.) Cinnamon Girl – Ninja Custodian
26.) Nothing’s Here To Stay – Anachronist

Great song from Static and Light the new Anachronist album. When they sent me the CD I bought, they tossed in a had written note with a couple of cool drawings. Thanks guys! Back in the ’80’s Ninja had some original songs but played a lot of covers. I love their version of that one. Well, if you’ve paying attention, you know the next song is another from And The Kids.

27.) Wiser – And The Kids
28.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music
29.) The Next Instead – Swale

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



Song after: Internal Exile – Fish

Second song after – Margaret (live) – Marillion
