I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played a couple of songs to celebrate my father’s 85th birthday today, and played some fun quirky songs.

The ’80’s Ladies each picked a full album to play, to get ready for St Patrick’s Day, from 7-9, so the station played U2’s The Joshua Tree in it’s entirety followed by The Cure’s Disintegration.

Song before: The Cure – Thompson Gunner

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight, I’m going to cheat a little and begin with a non-local song. Today is my dad’s 85th birthday, so I want to start with something he will appreciate. He’s always been a great father and spent much of his life volunteering in our community. Happy Birthday Dad!

1.) What’s The Buzz-Strange Thing Mystifying – Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack
2.) Addison County Clay – Dirtminers
3.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
4.) Shadow And Act – Invisible Homes
5.) Sparks – The Color Exchange

Exchange are from North Carolina, but stopped by Nectar’s on Tuesday, and played a fantastic show. I was tired, but their energy was so high that I loved every note. Homes and Phil played killer sets that night too! I know my dad has spent some time struggling with Addison county clay in his lifetime, and hope he appreciated the lyrics. I’m bummed I did not make it to Radio Bean last Saturday to see these next two bands.

6.) See You At Eight – Villanelles
7.) Into The Light – Great Western
8.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox

I just got that album yesterday and really like Dreamtime. I will have to check farther into it soon. Great songs from two great bands. There’s a Villanelles related movie happening at Arts Riot Saturday, and Maryse Smith and others are playing live. OK, last week I finished playing Many Things & Many Scenes, the excellent album from Joe Adler. Tonight, let’s start a new album to play song by song, week after week, until we’ve heard it all. Let’s jump into the first song from Swale’s The Next Instead.

9.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
10.) She Brings Me – Sistas in the Pit
11.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse
12.) Tibbar Tibbar – Black Rabbit

Rabbit are making some killer new music, but I still love that older song. Great rocker from the Crazy band who are playing all over Vermont, it seems. I loved the Sistas show with Death World Wide and ROUGH FRANCIS, and just had to play that song again. Hmmm, Swale. Here’s a fun song from an album that will be released soon.

13..) Co-Pilot – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
15.) New Age Woman – Pinhead
16.) Highway Girl – The Skamaphrodites

I hadn’t played ska in a while so I had to break that one out. Classics from Pinhead and Chin Ho. This next song is just one of those songs I’ve loved for years. Thanks Caroline Marie for such a great song!

17.) Once Upon – Vedora
18.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
19.) Chop Wood-Carry Water – Zola Turn

Those were just three classic Burlington songs, though RT were in Boston when they wrote that song about Medford. OK, let’s play some songs to highlight Burlington’s quirky side.

20.) Hedgehogs – The Toes
21.) Mixtape – Shark Victim
22.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
23.) Cassette – Slingshot Dakota

Toes and Shark have some delightfully quirky music. Remember when you would use a cassette to make a mixtape for the girl you liked, to find a way to connect? I’m not sure how it works in the digital age, but it’s a powerful enough memory that SV and HP have released their newest albums on cassette. OK, at this point I’m long on songs and short on time, so let’s run to the end.

24.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No
25.) TFAY (live) – Elephants of Scotland
26.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim
27.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
28.) In The Rain – Plan B

It’s that time of year when temperatures are rising and precipitation will now come as rain. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
