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

promo

intro

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

Outro

Songs After: Crucifix Corner – Fish

Emerald – Ace Frehley

Purple Rain – Prince

I just got back from my local music radio show on Wbkm Dot Org. I had one stunning mix and played some sweet songs.

Song before: Wondering Where The Lions Are – Bruce Cockburn

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been thinking about eternity and the nature of what we are recently. It’s weird to think of the spirit that is you is so tied to a physical body, and that large wonderful body would be almost nothing if you took away the water. Let’s play some songs about water and think about what it means to be alive. This is Left One In The Rain by Alice Austin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
2.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
3.) Waterlanding – Swale
4.) Nothing But The Water II – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Great song from Grace talking about one of the uses of water, it’s a great thing to balance the element of fire. The Swale and Cush songs have such a lovely watery feel. (note: the mix from Orange into Landing was seamless). Of course, rain is a very important iteration of water. OK, let’s move on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes,

5.) Many Things & Many Scenes – Joe Adler
6.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell
7.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson
8.) Promises – Vedora

Great song from Vedora. Matt has a side project every Monday in February at Radio Bean from 7-8. Last week I worked until 7:30 and missed it. Rats. Great classic songs from Burlington’s past with Joe and Zoot, and great song from Burlington’s present by Joe. This next singer is playing the Bean on Saturday at 7. I’ll see if I can make it if I get out early enough.

9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
10.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies
11.) Kill The Lights – Monoprix
12.) Change My Heart – Rusty Belle

Rusty are from North Hampton but come to Burlington often. They are playing the Skinny Pancake on Friday. Cool song from Brett Hughes and co. The Anna song would have fit nicely into the first set. This next band is playing The Monkey House tomorrow.

13.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness

Great band name and sweet song. Hover were a ’90’s Burlington band. It’s almost time for the And The Kids new album and tour. If you liked the Hover song, you’ll like this next set too!

17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
19.) Throw Me Away – Spill
20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

That song used to rock Burlington hard and often. I love all of those rocking songs that helped Burlington to keep expanding the sound of our town. I’m very psyched for this show next week at the Flynn Theatre. These three bands will be rocking out.

21.) Scream – Sistas in the Pit
22.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
23/) Freakin’ Out – Death World Wide

I’m sending that set out to my brother Ken who will go to the show with me. OK, let’s head back to classic Burlington.

24.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
25.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
26.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
27.) Geograph (2015 mix) – Elephants of Scotland

Ending where we began, on the edge of sea and sand. Ken and I, and most of the elephants, will see the lights of Montreal this summer when we go see Rush. 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. Black Rabbit released a great new EP on Saturday and I featured a few songs. I used that to create a set of really rocking music!

Song before: Prisoners Of Rock And Roll – Neil Young And Crazy Horse

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve got some great new music to play tonight but I want to start with a song I heard at Signal Kitchen a couple of weeks ago, that I keep listening to again and again. This is The Globe by Landlady on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) The Globe – Landlady
2.) Blue Light Shines – The Dwellers
3.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy

Great song from Brad Searles and friends. I love the dwellers song and Gabrielle Douglas‘ voice. There is a new The Cush streaming, but I don’t have a copy to play yet. I will, the moment I do. I love the Globe. On Saturday Black Rabbit released a killer 6 song EP. This one rocks!

4.) Tarpaulin – Black Rabbit
5.) You Want It All – When Particles Collide
6.) The New Super Heroes – Lindy Pear
7.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids

Last Friday, I went to The Monkey House to see Phil Yates and the Affiliates, and The Mountain Says No. The show was over early enough to run to Radio Bean and catch And The Kids. They played a great show and that song jumped out at me. Thanks to Joe Adler for organizing the Burlington-North Hampton band exchange. Lindy used to always be the second band on at the Radio Bean Birthday party, and always rocked! Great song from road warriors When Particles Collide. Songs like Tarpaulin keep me going to see Black Rabbit again and again. Well, last week I played the last song on Dancing With The Big Guy. It’s time to start playing a new album all the way through, song by song, week after week. This is another classic Burlington album. This is the first song from Ninja Jane.

8.) Ninja Jane – Zola Turn
9.) Throw Me Away – Spill
10.) Null – Five Seconds Expired
11.) Carnage – Black Rabbit

Another great song that I’ve loved for a while, that is now recorded. Yea. Killer song from FSE, one of the heavy rock bands from the ’90’s. Same with the Spill song. Zola were always there rocking , when I needed a band. It will be fun to play the full album all the way through. I think this next song is misnamed and is really a cover.

12.) Violence – Peg Tassey and Proud Of It
13.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
14.) The Invisibles – Black Rabbit.

Great song from Rabbit. Great Mission Of Burma cover by Ninja, and I think the Peg Tassey MUSIC song was really Is It My Body by Alice Cooper. 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 walked in and the ’80’s Ladies were wrapping up. I loaded in some music and started the show.

Song Before: Delta Sun Bottleneck Stomp – Mercury Rev

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last Saturday, a band from Portland Maine stopped by to rock The Monkey House. I bought their new EP, EGO, and all five songs are great. Let’s begin with a band called When Particles Collide and a song called Finally Found The One on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
2.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows
3.) Space Opera – Aram Bedrosian
4.) Our Work Is Never Done – PossumHaw

I was at the studio earlier today and received a package with the new album from PossumHaw. Our Work had a nice bass to start, and great lyrics, and I thought it would sound good coming out of Aram’s bass song. I ran into him lat week at the Monkey and he is doing a lot of teaching and working on a new album. I love that song by the Hanglows who played around town for a couple of years. I love all of the WPC disc!! Last week I played the last song from Alice Austin‘s To A Star In The Yard. Tonight I need to start a new album to work my way through, week by week. We are going to rock hard for a while, since I have chosen Maximum Soul Power by ROUGH FRANCIS.

5.) Ruffians – Rough Francis
6.) Neutrino – Black Rabbit
7.) I Hear Things Are Just As Bad Down In Lake Champlain – Gorgon
8.) The Tradeoff in Vermont – Lindy Pear

Nice song from Lindy. In winter, Vermont can be a bit of a bear, but in spring, summer and fall in can be amazing. I’m OK with the tradeoff. That burst of noise is new from Gorgon who have risen from the ashes of Doll Fight. Apparently they are going the heavy rocking route! Great song from Rabbit about Papa Neutrino, who inspired a lot of people. Rough Francis Rock! Next up, let’s play with a VT classic.

9.) Golgi Apparatus – The Pants
10.) Be A Good Citizen (NYC mix) – Pinhead
11.) Late ’80’s Ladies – Helicopter Consortium

It will be fun to see WBKM’s ’80’s Ladies every week. The Helicopter song is about people at music shows for the scene, and that’s fine, as long as you don’t annoy the people who are there for the music. Our ’80’s Ladies care about our listeners! The Pants do a great cover of the Phish song, even if they are not so sure. Citizen is a classic and encourages you to brush your teeth every day.

12.) Teeth Or Pedal – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
13.) Perfect Teeth – When Particles Collide
14.) Teeth – Wolvings

Wolvings played a great version of that a couple of weeks ago at the Monkey House birthday party. Phil and WPC played great versions of those songs last Saturday at the Monkey. Speaking of going out. I’m heading to see Wave of the Future at Manhattan Pizza. They don’t have anything recorded, but I ripped the MP3 from their Youtube video. I’ll be rocking to this soon!

15.) One Point Twenty-One Giga Jiga Watts – Wave Of The Futrue
