Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will go as follows.

Song before: Where Is My Mind? – The Pixies

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Thanks Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have a lot of music happening this week, and so does the rest of our town. Let’s begin with a guy who played around in the 1990’s and is getting the band back together.

1.) Sunflower Street – Dave Jarvis Band
2.) What’s The Deal With The Triangle? – James Kochalka Superstar
3.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
4.) The Next Instead – SWALE

On Monday Kochalka, Dino, Swale and Led Loco played a show in honor of Mike McGonegal. It was a great send off and most of those songs were played. He will be missed. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through week after week. The album is called Song For My Double.

5.) Aspiration – Invisible Homes
6.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
7.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
8.) Johnny – Arc Iris

Iris will be at Signal Kitchen on Friday and always put on a great show. That’s another new song from Madaila from their Traces album. 1881 are playing Sidebar on Monday and are really good. This next band are playing with Iris on Saturday.

9.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
10.) Better Off – Haley Jane and the Primates
11.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
12.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

Great new song from Whisper. Who needs contests when you can just walk out to a local club and see people like Jeremy. Haley and the band will be at Nectar’s tomorrow and always put on an enthralling show. This next singer will be at Manhattan Pizza on Saturday.

13.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler
14.) East Jabip – REDadmiral
15.) Muskrat Love – Cave Bees
16.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand

I still remember the show Grand played at Nectar’s a few months ago and can’t wait to see them again. Bees are playing next Wednesday at ArtsRiot. Admiral are at the Monkey House on Saturday and always rock. OK, let’s play some classic Burlington songs.

17.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
19.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
20.) The Spy Song – Pinhead.

All four of those are classic Burlington songs. This next one is too and is unfortunately still all too appropriate.

21.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
22.) Kill Your Idols – Slush
23.) Blood Boy – Barbacoa
24.) Sunday – Envy

Those are all classics too. Barbacoa will play with Swale tomorrow at ArtsRiot for a live recording, so that is one of the many can’t miss shows tomorrow, and Saturday is just as packed. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
26.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
27.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Great new Siberians song. FTC rocked the early 2000’s and Casey used to sing in a few local bands. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Songs after: Medley/The Company – Fish
Rock Soldiers – Ace Frehley
I Wait – Children in Paradise
New Love – Andriana Chobot
All The Love – Kate Bush

I just got back from my local music radio show, streaming online at our Facebook page, WBKM.ORG and over the airwaves at 107.1FM. I highlighted a couple of upcoming shows and played some rock and roll.

Song before: Dannemora – Seth Yacovone

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Last Friday I made it out to see The High Breaks at Juniper at Hotel Vermont. They have just released their debut album and I got a copy. It’s called Droppin’ Off With The High Breaks. Let’s begin with a couple of songs from it.

1.) Ankle Breaker – The High Breaks
2.) Wicked World – The High Breaks
3.) The Big One – The High Breaks

Great rockers from the band. When they played last Friday they tossed in a few of the Surf Sabbath songs, including Wicked, so I thought that would be fun to toss Wicked into the set. OK, let’s continue on with the next song on Bernie Sanders album.

4.) This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Artists
5.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
6.) Mon Ange – Francesca Blanchard
7.) Friends – Myra Flynn

Great song from Myra. Francesca has a ton of shows coming up soon. I’m still loving the Bern song and Bernie and his message. So, a week ago Wednesday I got to see The Nancy Druids at WRUV then I got to see them again last Monday at the Monkey House. They put on a great show. I don’t have any of their music but here is some from Sean’s previous bands.

8.) 1,000 Lies – Sean Toohey
9.) Sunday – Envy
10.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone

Sean did that song with Matt Hutton last year. Sunday is a classic rocker from the ’90’s. Great solo song from Sean in the ’90’s. Speaking of the ’90’s, one of the classic bands from that era, The Pants, just had a movie made about them. The movie will be shown at Higher Ground on Saturday and then a ton of local musicians will play some Pants songs and maybe a few other classics from the era. Here are a few songs from the Pants;

11.) Vermont – The Pants
12.) Cows – The Pants
13.) Overboard – The Pants
14.) High Water Mark – The Pants

There’s a pretty good chance you will hear all of those on Saturday. You may hear some of the next songs too.

15.) All My Life – Wide Wail
16.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
17.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
18.) Affection – Guppyboy

Chris Ziter & Jeff Baron from Guppyboy will be at the show. James will be at the show. Casey Rae will be at the show, and since Swale are the house band, Amanda from Wide Wail will be there. It’s going to be lots of fun. OK, up next I want to highlight a show that is happening on Friday at Club Metronome. It’s a benefit for the VNA Family Room and features Jamie Lee Thurston & The Starline Rhythm Boys.

19.) Best Damn Night – Jamie Lee Thurston
20.) Somebody Up There Loves Me – The Starline Rhythm Boys
21.) You Make Me See Stars – Lonestar Chain

Lonestar were Burette Douglas’ solo band and wrote a bunch of great songs, including that one. Stars always gets me going. Cool songs from Starline and Jamie. OK, let’s play some classic Burlington rock.

22.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
23.) Not True – Peg Tassey
24.) TFAY – Elephants Of Scotland
25.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis

Dave always wrote and played such fun songs. TFAY is such a great song. I just love Peg’s voice and energy and songs. Same goes for Zola. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Goodbye, Ta ta. See You, Sayonara.

26.Sayonara – Black Rabbit

outro

Songs After: Tumbledown – Fish
Empire Of The Clouds – Iron Maiden

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 started out with a couple of local highlights from the Neil Young show, then played some great local music.

Song before: Hymnalayas – Gong

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful day in Burlington and lots of people are out and about tonight. It was also a beautiful night last Sunday when Neil Young and The Promise Of The Real came to Essex. He came to Vermont to support our GMO labeling law, which is the subject of his new album The Monsanto Years. This is one of the songs from the album that heavily mentions Vermont and the importance of knowing what we are eating, This is A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop by Neil Young on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop – Neil Young
2.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson
3.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist
4.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner

It’s summer in Burlington and that was a band from Rutland and that was recorded at Nectar’s. Great new song from Jeremy. At the Neil Young show, Lucas and Micah Nelson were part of the Promise Of The Real. They are the sons of Willie and Lucas sang a great version of Moonlight In Vermont last Sunday in Essex. Oh, yea, it’s summer. Let’s head to the beach.

5.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
6.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
7.) Theme Song – Shark Victim
8.) Rising Suns – Mammal Dap
9.) Rise – Barika

Such a nice cool breezy song. If you like that song, head to Radio Bean tomorrow. Mammal just played Summervale earlier this evening. When you go to the beach, obey the lifeguard and watch out for sharks, especially when surfing. So, on Saturday there is a celebration of the Old North End of Burlington. People get together and walk around the ONE and check out art and music and food and what businesses are doing and all sorts of fun things. It’s called The Ramble and this next set of music is dedicated to Burlington’s Old North End.

10.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
11.) The North – Hana Zara
12.) North Street – Death World Wide

Killer rocker from Death. I love the imagery of the north end in Hana’s song. Loud and Proud nicely describes the ONE, thanks James. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the killer new album from The Mountain Says No.

13.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
14.) Getting High – Heavy Plains
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

I still remember that time when there were not a lot of cool rock bands around for a few months and then came Cannons. Oh, how they rocked so many great shows. Killer song from Particles who are touring all over the US and just played Toronto too. I’m still in awe of Plains from that Nectar’s show. Hmm, Signs And Wonders. Hmmm Mountain. When I put tonight’s show together the beginning just flowed then I hit a wall after Nowhere. I just wasn’t sure where to go next, for a moment.

17.) Where Do We Go? – Black Rabbit
18.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
19.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
20.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler

Killer song from Joe’s album. He’s done so much for the local music scene, especially writing and playing songs like that. Nice rocker form Raph Worrick and the gang. Classic VT song from Chin. Yet another great song from Rabbit’s new album Red Flannel Hash. Recently, there was a band who played a bunch of shows then just stopped. I’m missing them and feeling a little lacking, like maybe i need to take some vitamins or something.

21.) Vitamin Dee – Persian Claws
22.) Medula Mamblongata – Strung Out
23.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
24.) The Feeling – Vedora

Killer new song from the second Vedora album. If you liked the whistling on Birds, go check out Aaron next Wednesday at Red Square. Killer song form the classic VT band. I feel a bit better after that shot of Vitamin Dee, I hope you do too. I saw this next band twice last Thursday. They played Summervale, I left then did the show and walked into Light Club Lamp Shop just as they were about to go on. Both shows were great but the later one was out of this world. Here’s a couple of their songs.

25.) Honor Of The Rainbows part 1 & 2 – Arc Iris
26.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone
27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I might be off next week seeing the Decemberists but we can to it the week after that, and the week after that…..

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I highlighted a few of the many bands that are playing Waking Windows this weekend. Most of the commentary between songs was when and where the bands are playing, so I will leave the website as a comment and leave the talking spaces blank.

Song before: Windows Down – Lendway

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday there will be a staggering amount of music in Winooski. I’m going to highlight a lot of that,but want to start with what happened last weekend. It was great to see Elephants of Scotland play at Brutopia as part of the Marillion weekend in Montreal. Elephants played Nectar’s a couple of weeks ago, and it was cool to see them in Canada. There were lots of people who wanted to be there and knew their music and were so excited to see them. It was pretty great. They played a nice version of this one. This is TFAY by Elephants of Scotland on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland
2.) Slash & Burn – Zero Circle

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.

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

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?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played some new songs, I played some old songs, and I talked about of couple of “literary” characters in local music songs.

Song before: Fractured Mirror – Ace Frehley

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a cold night in Burlington but people are out and about, walking around, not letting it stop them. I was trying to make it to three shows this week and feel bad I only made it to one. Great Western played a great show lat Friday at Radio Bean, and did a killer version of this one. This is Into the light by Great Western on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Into The Light – Great Western
2.) The Storm Within – Death World Wide
3.) Holy Family – Heavy Plains
4.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

I made it to Western last Friday and after a long work day Saturday was dragging when it got close to the Phil show at The Monkey House. As it turned out the party ended up coming to me that night. I was going to go see Phil Yates solo at Radio Bean on Sunday but the afternoon nap was 4 hours and I woke up right as he was going on. I should have set the alarm. Rats. Great song from the upcoming Phil album. I just got the Plains album today and that one jumped at me. Sweet song from Death from the Burlington days. OK, on to the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes. This is a beautiful song that I’m sending out to my brother. It features Johnnie Day Durand on the saw.

5.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
6.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn
7.) The Next Instead – Swale

I thought Swale were going to play Radio Bean tomorrow night but the schedule changed and now it’s Barbacoa and Binger. Hmm. I think Aaron is playing at Juniper tomorrow. I may have to check that out. Joe is playing Saturday night at the Bean, so that will be fun. This next band is from Canada but have played Burlington and Vermont so many times, they are practically locals. They are playing the Flynn Theater on Tuesday. I’ve seen them many times but may miss this one. I had no money when tickets went on sale, and as soon as I could afford it, they were sold out. Oh well, maybe next time. On this tour they are playing a few songs, then all of Fully Completely.

8.) Fully Completely – The Tragically Hip
9.) New Orleans Is Sinking (live w/Nautical Disaster in the middle) – The Tragically Hip

That’s going to be a rocking night at the Flynn. The Flynn will also rock in February when Death and Rough Francis play. I’ve got tickets for that, for me and my brother Ken. Here’s another song from Spiritual Mental Physical.

10.) Can You Give Me A Thrill??? – Death
11.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
13.) Something I Drew – farm

Farm put on some great shows and I always loved that one. I though it would sound great coming out of Comm and was so right. OK, let’s slow things down a little. This next artist has an album coming in February. Until then I will have to just play this one.

14.) Dropout Generation – Hana Zara
15.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
16.) Our Work Is Never Done – PossumHaw

I love that song and really love the sentiment of it! I may not make it, but I’ll always try. I don’t know a lot about Abbie but she has a Wednesday night residence at Nectar’s this January. I’m sure Ill catch her the night Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger play. Love Hana, can’t wait for the new songs!. This next artist just started a Kickstarter to fund his new album. The last one was great, and here is a song from it.

17.) 1965 – The New Siberians
18.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
19.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
20.) Hammerhead – Barbacoa

Barbacoa always rock. I’ll see how the energy goes tomorrow. I’d love to catch them at the Bean. I was going to play a song by Redadmirial but it was in a format the players did not recognize, so maybe next week. It was recorded live at a pub called The Old Northender so I had to play the James song. Love the BB song too. OK, time for two more songs. These are two “literary” characters of song from Burlington.

21.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows
22.) Errol McSquisitor (live) – Elephants of Scotland

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