Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM can be heard from the Facebook link, will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time tonight, and will go as follows:

Song before: It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station. They have a packed week of great bands. I just got a copy of the new album by Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band called By My Side. It’s really good so let’s dive right into it.

1.) Come Dance – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists
3.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vt Musicians

That was recorded in the 1980’s but still sounds so relevant today. With the upcoming election, if we can’t vote for Bernie, we can still follow his advice. Please vote and please don’t vote for the clown. OK, it’s time for the next song on the Invisible Homes album Song For My Double that I’m playing all the way through week after week until it’s done.

4.) The Clown – Invisible Homes
5.) Who’s Your Fool? – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
7.) Jazzmaster – Made by Robots

I caught Robots over the summer at Jazzfest and really liked them and have been wanting to play some of their music. Jet were a classic band from Burlington’s illustrious ’90’s. Another great new Kat song. OK, so today is my Mom’s birthday. I spent some time this morning with her and my brother. She really likes this classic Vermont singer, so this one goes out to you Mom.

8.) The Power Of The Word – Jon Gailmor
9.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
10.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
11.) Monarch Butterfly – Jenny Montana

Jenny used to play that song in the 2000’s though I have not heard from her in a while. It’s such a fun song. Jeremy Gilchrist is raising money to make his new album Threaded. If you like that song, please consider supporting him by pre-purchasing it. Maryse still comes back to play now and then and Jon is a local legend. This next band release their new album Traces tomorrow (I knew it was soon when I recorded the show but did not realize it’s out tomorrow).

12.) 1 – Madaila
13.) Nature – Madaila
14.) You Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
15.) I Do – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
16.) Woods – Madaila

Those were the opening closing songs from Madaila’s Traces album and two more great new Kat songs. Yesterday, I went to Nectar’s and saw Sue Minter, Peter Welch, Pat Leahy, and Al Franken. Al was very serious and very funny and really wants us to go out and vote. Before and after the speeches was a tremendous show of music from Bob Wagner and friends. Here is a song from Bob’s other non indomitable band to give you a hint about what they sounded like yesterday.

17.) Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? – Book ‘Em Blues Band
18.) The Light – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Another great new Kat Wright song. Yes, Bob really is that great of a guitar player. Tuesday is election day and there is a show at Nectar’s that night so everyone can go out and party and not have to be alone, whichever way it works out. Here are a few of the bans that will be here.

19.) The Magic Robot – James Kochalka
20.) Hermaphroditus – Rue M.
21.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
22.) Oh Dirty Blondes – Dirty Blondes

If you are looking for music next Tuesday check out The Dirty Blondes Present: Exit Poll 2016 at Nectar’s. With those fun bands, and more, it’s going to be a great show. This next song has been running through my head all week. I hope you enjoy it.

23.) Black, Blue and White – The New Siberians
24.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
25.) Sleepwalker – 1881

That song has been running through my head a lot lately too. Great song from Elephants. Our Earth is not random, it’s the only one we’ve got, so let’s do all that we can to take care of it, and us by default. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? See ya, ta ta, farewell….

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
13th Star – Fish
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
Hand Of Doom – Black Sabbath
Sat In Your Lap – Kate Bush
Cascade – Andriana Chobot
What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music

intro

From our – hey why are the meters not showing anything. Aargh

1.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Sorry for the mic not working at the beginning. I guess you really know that I’m live. It’s beautiful in Vermont right now but it’s really hot and time to head to the beach.

2.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
3.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
4.) Say It – Anachronist

I just love that song from the central Vermont band. I chatted with Winfield Holt from 1881 in the window of the show at Nectar’s last night and really want to catch his band soon. I remember seeing Blotto at Hunt’s a couple of times a long time ago. OK, here is the next song on Giant Places, the album I am playing through song by song, week after week, until the album is done.

5.) Summer Falls – Lendway
6.) Gray Goo – Villanelles
7.) Sunshine – Apartment 3
8.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids

Kids played a great show at ArtsRiot last Saturday. Apartment 3 played the show and they were pretty awesome too. Villanelles are playing every Wednesday in July at Nectar’s. They played a great show last night with Invisible Homes. Next week Swale share the bill, so that will be great too. On July 28th the legendary Envy will reunite for a show at The Monkey House. It’s time to start getting excited.

9.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
10.) Summer Song – Wide Wail
11.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
12.) Another Life Ago – The Cush

I still remember the first night I saw the Cush at Club Metronome several years ago. Jet played some great shows in the ’90’s and it was great to hear music diversify in so many ways. Now, you can hear almost any kind of music in Burlington. That was a nice mellow song from WW, another classic ’90’s band. OK, let’s keep rocking. This next band play tomorrow night at Manhattan Pizza and Pub.

13.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
14.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
15.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn
16.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner

There’s always something on the radio when you listen to WBKM. You can hear great songs like Dead Summer. Real is another classic from the ’90’s when Zola played a ton of great shows. Death began in Detroit, then they moved to VT and became Lambsbread and now they are rocking as Death again. I loved the show they played at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts last year. Hmmm, Mountain. This next band played a great show last night at Nectar’s and this is one of my favorite songs.

17.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
18.) Sun Dipped Orphans and the Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland
19.) The Summer Of Andy – Cancer Conspiracy

CC were another great band from the ’90’s. That’s a new song from Elephants who are putting out some tremendous music. Homes did a great version of Frequency last night. OK, let’s change things up a little bit.

20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait
21.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
22.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
23.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue

Cricket are playing at Main St Landing tomorrow and Radio Bean next Tuesday. Both Andriana and Binger played great sets at the Eat More Kale Festival a couple of weeks ago. Nice descriptions of VT by Portrait. This next singer is touring out west soon.

24.) Save A Different Way – Francesca Blanchard
25.) Beats Me – Satori Bob
26.) Glover Tonight – Chin Ho

Such a VT classic from Chin Ho. John Baumann used to play around as Satori but is now hanging out making music in OR. Great song from Francesca. 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 promised it would start a little slow, get a bit experimental, then end with a bang. I think I delivered nicely.

Show before: The ’80’s Ladies playing some ’80’s Genesis

After their show I played:

Firth of Fifth (live) – Genesis (With Peter Gabriel)
To Be Over – Yes (official)
Weeping Willow – Persian Claws

Song before: Lake Song – The Decemberists

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s fairly warm for a January night, through the wind is a little cool. It was a nice walk in this evening and it was a nice walk downtown last night when I saw this first singer at Nectar’s. This is Better Half by Abbie Morin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
2.) Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
3.) Powder – The New Siberians

Great song from the Siberians last album. They achieved their Kickstarter goal but if people keep chipping in, they will make the album cooler. Love that song from Will. I’ve got to check out Abbie again, maybe sometime when a killer band did not just play before her. OK, on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes.

4.) Many A Girl (Back of a Sail) – Joe Adler
5.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
6.) Lawnfire – The Pants
7.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Great song from the upcoming new Phil album. Classic ’90’s band The Pants, and I had to play a song of theirs following the ATK song. Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger played a nice version of that at Nectar’s last night, as well as some stunning versions of some of his other songs. I’m slowly getting to know this next band.

8.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
9.) Space Opera – Aram Bedrosian
10.) AV6 – Bad Smell
11.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila

I should check out their music more. I really like that song. Nice music from Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall Percussion. Burlington is such a small town, I ran into Aram in the grocery store before the show. Last week I played two new Alice Austin songs but she put three out. I would be remiss if I did not play the third one.

12.) What If I Don’t Go? – Alice Austin
13.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
14.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
15.) The Time Traveler – Jeremy Gilchrist

Jeremy is doing the Rock Lotto thing Saturday morning. It’s where a bunch of musicians form new bands for the day, write three songs and do one cover and play the songs later that evening at Club Metronome. Any other musicians up for the challenge? It’s a benefit to raise money for Girls Rock Vermont. Great song from Hana. I can’t wait for the new album. It’s going to have tons of great songs!! I love that song by Milton. I saw this next band once, and would like to see them again.

16.) Singing Songs In Your Sleep – Carraway
17.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
18.) Open Road – Death World Wide
19.) Hungry – Heavy Plains

HP have their debut album coming out. They are playing Saturday at The Monkey House. Nice song from Death’s third album. Cool song from the ’90’s in Burlington. OK, let’s rock for a while.

20.) Hello World – Screaming Skulls
21.) Extouring – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars
22.) Tic Toc – Doll Fight
23.) Vestibule – Blue Button

Killer song from BB. I miss Dollfight. I’ve got to catch JCHA sometime. In Burlington, there is a part of town called the Old North End and its residents are proud.

24.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
25.) North Street – Death
26.) Wino – REDadmiral

That song was recorded live at the Old North Ender Pub on North St. Nice song from Death’s third album. It’s almost time to go but let’s rock a bit more.

27.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
28.) Institution Street – The Red Telephone
29.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
30.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons

Nice eponymous song from FTC. Wow, they rocked hard for a couple of years in town. Killer song from Rabbit. I love that rocker from RT. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before October – U2

intro

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?

I just got home from radio show number 9 (no Beatles though). I feel like I played some pretty good songs, but might have got the order better. It was a long work day, and I was more tired than is ideal.

Song Before:   Show Me – Jon Anderson

promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Here’s a song from a show at Nectar’s a couple of months back. This is Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger on WBKM, Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Mirror Mirror – Rangers of Danger

2.) Tension Release – Nuda Veritas

3.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian

Said Casey Hades Rae used to be the music writer in town and is now playing music. Talked about downloading t for free, but not feeling good about it. Even though I did it to play on the show, it feels like I should have paid for it. Said I would pay extra for his new one. I guess, I have to do it now. Talked about how amazing Nuda is live, and how she uses loops to create a lush sound. Talked about how Joe is a treasure to our music scene. Talked about leaving the Nectar’s show that it was recorded at, because Vedora were playing. It’s hard when two great shows happen at the same time. Mentioned how much I love Vedora.

4.) Somewhere Else – Vedora

5.) Livin – Nuda Veritas

6.) Presence – Satori Bob

Talked about first seeing John Baumann at the Cheese Outlet and loving his songs. Said he met up with Bob Gagnon to do the Satori Bob album. Talked about how wonderful Nuda is, and how much I love Vedora. Said last week I played Barbacoa doing BloodBoy.

7.) Bloodboy – Envy

8.) Weapon Factory – The Wards and the Dirty Blondes

9.) Finder – The Madelines

Talked about getting a CD from Chip Martin that had a ton of great stuff from Good Citizen. I saw the name the Madelines and something clicked. I played it, loved it, and had to play it on the show. Talked about how Weapon Factory began the Burlington punk scene, and how it was a fun version with the Blondes. Diane Sullivan clearly has the lead vocal at the end. Mentioned how great Envy were. Talked about playing another song from that CD and here is Invisible Jet.

10) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle

11.) If this is You – Invisible Jet

Apologized for introducing the wrong song. I meant to play Hero Cycle, and was happy that I just saw them play twice and who knows what happened to them. I’m glad they created the CD. Mentioned Invisible Jet and said goodnight.

http://wbkm.org/

I just got home from radio show number 4 on WBKM. It was a little rough, but I got to play a bunch of cool music.

Song Before: Rockaway Beach – The Ramones

Intro:

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I talked about Wide Wail opening for Juliana Hatfield in 2000

1.) All My Life – Wide Wail

2.) 10 Speed Car – Torpedo Rodeo

3.) Sharp Side of the Knife – Alice Austin

4.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho!

Talked about how catchy a riff there is in the Chin Ho! song (and had it in my head for the walk home), talked about how great Alice is when she growls out Sharp Side. I talked about seeing Torpedo at JP’s and Manhattan Pizza and talked about how Max Krauss sometimes has bands at parties in his basement. I talked a bit more about Wide Wail, then talked about Emily and how good a violin player she is.

5.) Medula Mamblongata – Strung Out

6.) Maria – Vedora

7.) Yayo – The Dirty Blondes

Talked about how the Blondes song mentions Maple st, Elm st, Pitkin st, Church st and how very Burlington it is. I talked about seeing Everybody’s Favorite Irish Drinking Songs Band on Saturday and Sunday. I talked about how Maria sounded like it would go great out of the Strung Out song, and that they are playing at 10, next Thursday at Nectar’s. I talked about seeing Strung Out at the Chickenbone, and several other places. I talked about how music exists in the moment they is gone, but recordings can be played forever. I talked about David L. Jarviswriting great songs in town then joining the Army, then being in El Paso and starting a psychedelic rock band.

8.) Paper Train – D. Jarvis Band (it played for a few seconds, then I hit something wrong and the next song started playing. Sorry Dave!! Sorry everyone else too!)

8.) Grounded – Invisible Jet

9.) Paper Train – D. Jarvis Band (in it’s entirety!!)

10.) Lights of Montreal – Lobot

Talked about how good Lobot were and that they play a reunion show every year. Talked about Chris Farnsworth playing guitar with Lobot and Dino Bravo. I apologized for cutting Paper Train, then talked about how cool it would be to walk into a club and hear something that sounds like Peter Gabriel, but it turns out to be a local band called Invisible Jet. I talked about the wonderful melody of Paper Train. I talked about playing one of my favorite Farm Songs

11.) Bad Oasis – Farm

12.) Time to Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

Talked about how it was time to get out, and that Aaron would be playing on the 30th in Hinesburg. Talked about if Farm played Bad Oais at a festival, Robbie Williams would probably toss the I’ve got soul in the worst of places line into one of his medleys.

Outro

Song after: Gloria (live from Red Rocks) – U2
