Song before: Lily – Kate Bush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’m going to play a ton of new music tonight, but let’s start with a couple of Burlington classics. This is Zoot Wilson on Wbkm, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Killer Bee Bop – Zoot Wilson
2.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell and the Unknown Blues Band
3.) My Atom Girl – The Dirtminers
4.) Three Cheers – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Happy birthday to a great guy, a great singer/songwriter,guitar player, a great father, husband and teacher. Three Cheers to Phil Yates on his birthday. The Dirthminers always put on fun shows and played geopolitical songs about having a crush on the girl in your class, you know, stuff like that. Raph Worrick was a driving force in the band and he is one of Phil’s affiliates. This next song is from the brand new (released two days ago) album featuring many of Burlington’s greats. It’s also the name of a show on Tuesday nights from 7-9pm on WBKM.ORG.

5.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
6.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
7.) The Ground Is Giving Up – Aaron Flinn

Aaron is one of Vermont’s true talents. I have not caught up with him recently, but hope to soon. Maryse is playing the Cambridge Music Festival this Saturday with Swale and others. Go see her if you can. You will be better off for it. Great new album from Joe Adler. He will play Saturday night with the Rangers at Nectar’s. This next band just released a very nice and happy video.

8.) Smile – Dwight and Nichole
9.) In Comes The Tide – PossumHaw
10.( Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin

I’m really beginning to love the riff in Stars and can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next. I love that song by PossumHaw. I ran into Hana Zara at Radio Bean on Tuesday when Joe Adler and Samara Lark Brown played, We agreed that she owed me a physical copy of her first CD. I ran into her while walking downtown on Wednesday and she gave me a copy. Here is one of the many great songs from that album.

11.) Nathaniel – Hana Zara
12.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
13.) Sunny Side Of The Couch – The Leston’s
14.) 88 – Wave Of The Future

Great new song from Wave. That EP came out a couple of weeks ago. I’m heading to Manhattan Pizza to see them after this show. Dino Bravo are opening, but I will be too late to catch them. Matthew Stephen Perry played with the Leston’s and Chris Farnsworth played with Lobot, so if you listen to those two songs you will get a hint of what Bravo sound like. Friday and Saturday the South End of Burlington will be filled with art and music. Wave are playing tomorrow at Speaking Volumes on Pine st, and this next band are playing Saturday on King Street, as part of the South End Art Hop.

15.) Eighty Nine – Black Rabbit
16.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger
17.) High Water Mark – The Pants

Classic Burlington rock from the nineties. Another great new song from Joe’s album Many Things & Many Scenes. I hope I can make it to Rabbit on Saturday. The college kids are back and September 1st was a huge moving day in Burlington. This is the next song from Ninja Jane.

18.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
19.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
20.) Wiser – And The Kids

And The Kids will play at the Art Hop on Flynn ave on Friday and will play at Nectar’s with Joe on Saturday. Yea! Great new song from Better. I ran into Michael Clifford on Wednesday. He wanted my Hana Zara CD but I would not give it to him. To make it up to him, a bit, here is a song from one of his bands.

21.) Ready To Race – Lendway
22.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I love the John Whyte lyric asking if we can win the human race, and like the lyrical tie in with Lendway. Of course we can win the human race. Act with joy and promote fun for all. We’ll all win that way. OK, here’s more Joe.

23.) Many A Girl (Back Of A Sail) – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger
24.) Ain’t No Telling – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
25.) Many A Girl (Back Of A Sail) reprise – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger

Joe’s band and Kat’s band are pretty much the same, so I thought I’d mix them together. 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, number 43, on internet only WBKM. I had to work all day, then got out at 7 with only a rough sketch of some of the show. I got into the studio and started to build it.

Song before: Something On – The Tragically Hip

promo ( Lendway promo)

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been on a tear lately and ended the year seeing a ton of great music. I saw Milton Busker play a beautiful set at Radio Bean on Friday. I saw a ton of bands on Saturday at The Monkey House‘s 7th birthday party, like Black Rabbit and Dino Bravo VT (and spaced all of the others), on Sunday I saw the last Dark Side Of The Mountain show and Matthew Bryan Hagen was great and Grace Potter sang Great Gig In The Sky and Kat Wright sang most of side two of Dark Side Of The Moon. I stayed in Monday and on Tuesday caught Hana Zara at Radio Bean then went to The Monkey Hose to see Maryse Smith, Nyko, and ended 2013 with a killer set from Vedora. Tonight I will start with a song Hana played at the Bean. It’s a very appropriate song for this time of year on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) The New One – Hana Zara
2. Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
3.) Big Slowdown – Great Western

I’ve only caught GW a couple of times but loved then every time I did. I have to get out to see them in 2014. I’m just getting to know their new album and wanted to get that one on the air. I love Ninja and have been waiting months to play that one. Hana is super talented and her new songs are really good. I can’t wait to hear the album about Amanda in full. At her current writing pace, that should be very soon. Well, Vedora was the last band I saw in 2013, and they played a killer version of this one.

4.) Promises – Vedora
5.) Captain 20 – Barbacoa
6.) Warm Chills – Persian Claws
7.) Horse – Envy

I just love that song by Envy and have been jumping around the studio like a crazy man with the volume cranked. The Claws are always fun and basically Barbaco with La Dee singing. I’ve had a great time whenever I’ve seen them. Hmmm, Vedora. OK, now it’s time for the second to last song on To A Star In The Yard.

8.) Let’s Make Mercy – Alice Austin
9.) Black Horse Acre – The Lonestar Chain
10.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
11.) Stylus Of Id – Somah

I loved seeing Somah and love the song about seeing Orion at this time of year. I love to sing I don’t mind the cold, as it’s 10 degrees below zero and snowing in Burlington. It seems like Lobot come back and play a reunion show every year. Is it time yet??? That was a great song from Lonestar. The next two bands are all about 2014. The second is someone I’m hoping will play some shows, with new songs or old, sometime this year. The first are putting the finishing touches on their new album. It will be ready soon!

12.) Home Away From Home – Elephants of Scotland
13.) Poem For Torin/Ethan’s Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC

I saw Peg at the Precipice this year and hope she puts something together soon. Well, 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 local music radio show number 11. I still need to tighten the dialog, but I will work on it.

Song before: Beware of Darkness – George Harrison

Peg Tassey WBKM promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Last week I finished playing the Vedora album, this week I’m starting on New Appreciation for Sunshine by The Cush. Here is the opening song on WBKM, Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Searching for the sun – The Cush
2.) Walking in Circles – Raq
3.) Here comes the sun – Aaron Flinn

Talked about the George Harrison cover night at Radio Bean last Friday. Talked about Aaron playing a sweet solo for While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and a nice version of Beware of darkness, but blanked on mentioning any of the other wonderful performers. Said that Aaron did Here Comes The Sun Richie Havens style, and said what a wonderful performer Richie was. Said I don’t know a lot about Raq, but Mike Luoma kept saying they were good. I listened to that song, liked it, and loved the lyric about don’t fool me and get me out into the sunshine, it’s blinding me. The lyric made me want to play it out of the Cush song. Speaking of walking in circles, Waking Windows is coming to Winooski this weekend. Last weekend, I did the Harrison show and the Vedora show at Manhattan Pizza on Friday, and Max Krauss’ party on Saturday. Some great bands, like Black Rabbit, played some great music.

4.) Tubar Tubar – Black Rabbit
5.) I regret – Chin Ho!
6.) Charlie – Hover
7.) Gentleman – Plan B

Talked about seeing Plan B at Nectar’s in the ’90’s and loving the song with the blunt chorus. Talked about how Brad Searles did so much for Burlington over the years, and how he played in bands such as Hover. Great song from one of the great Burlington bands, Chin Ho! Don’t know what Tubar Tubar means, but love yelling it when seeing them live. Had to choose, since Max was having a party, and at the same time, Blue Button and Dino Bravo were playing. I had to make a choice. I saw good music, but missed good music too. Chris Farnsworth plays in Dino, so here’s him playing in Lobot

8.) An intervention of sorts – Lobot
9.) Opium spy thrill – Ninja Custodian
10.) Nowhere feels like home – Fire the Cannons
11.) Its real again – Zola Turn

Talked about Zola and how girls can rock as hard as the boys. Talked about loving Fire and how, one time, Johnny Aquadora was playing the drums so hard, and he threw a drumstick and it slid on the floor into my foot. I picked it up and still have it. It’s pretty chewed up, he hits really hard. Talked about loving Ninja and Chris’ playing. Talked about how scary it is when someone gets lost and how wonderful when they get found. Talked about how Mother’s day coming up. Said Happy Mother’s Day to my mom.

12.) Mother’s OK – Split Tongue Crow
13.) Where are you tonight? – Lonestar Chain

Talked about the sheet talent in Lonestar, Dedicated the STC song to anyone who has ever got the news that their Mother’s OK. 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 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.
