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

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 internet radio show number 34 on WBKM.ORG. I’m assuming you all turned down the sound on the world series to listen in. If not, the archived copy of the show will be available sometime. I played a set of shimmering songs and opened with an Orion, and the coming of winter, theme. The tagline for Stylus is: I don’t mind the cold, Orion…..

Song before: Orion – Jethro Tull

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a chilly day, and it’s a cold night here in the Champlain Valley. Winter is coming and it’s the time of Orion to light the sky. This is a song called Stylus of Id by a band called Somah on WBKM, and they are Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Stylus Of Id – Somah
2.) All My Life – Wide Wail
3.) The Possibility Shop – The Red Telephone

Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton are such great songwriters and performers and have played lots of great music in Burlington. With a line like, you can stop at the costume shop, I though it was an appropriate song to play, since Halloween is next week. Definitely tune in, I have a cool show lined up for Halloween, which is next Thursday. I’ve got some great dark local music, and I think, a special guest. Wide Wail were stunning at times and rocked this town hard. Somah have lots of great songs, and this one always reminds me of this time of year. Next up is, essentially, the tile song of Alice Austin‘s To A Star In The Yard. It’s the second song on the album and I will work my way through the full disc, over the next several weeks.

4.) Shoots Like You – Alice Austin
5.) Not True – Peg Tassey
6.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
7.) Kick The can – Cave Bees

The Bees came back from Texas for the summer, but haven’t played too much. Hopefully they will play a show or two before they go back. Dave is in Texas, and when he comes back to New York, I hope he writes more great songs like Sunflower. Peg can be regal and majestic, but at times she can just rock. This is one of those times. Alice rocks too and was such a huge part of the Burlington music scene for so many years. Next up, let’s play some blues, St Albans style.

8.) St. Albans Blues – farm
9.) The River Hymn – The Sweet Remains
10.) Matilda Bridge – The Cush
11.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle

I love the huge swell in Breathing. Matilda is so shimmering and cool and sounded great coming out of River. Hmmm Farm. OK, it’s almost time to go. I should grab another drink.

12.) One More Drink – Will
13.) Unstopable – Lendway
14.) Come to Space – ROUGH FRANCIS

I loved the way the chaos at the end of the Lendway song mixed into the chaos of the Space beginning. Great Rock from Francis. Great harmonies from Lendway. Great song by Will. 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 radio show 19 on WBKM.ORG.  I felt like last week’s show was a bit boy heavy so I tipped the scales, a bit, the other way.

Song Before: America – Yes (live Burlington?) (Burlington seems to be a dream to me now)

promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington.  It’s our nations birthday and it’s summer and it’s hot and humid and this is Sarah Emily Blacker on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker

2.) In the Rain – Plan B

3.) Sexy Flowers – Peg Tassey

Talked about it raining a couple of times a day, at varying intensity, lengths, with optional lightning.  But, we are getting some sun, thus we are getting sexy flowers.  Said I was tempting fate by playing the plan B song, but other than the two rainstorms today, it’s been a nice late afternoon and evening.  Sarah is releasing her new CD (EP) at Radio Bean next Friday, July 12.  Next we continue on with New Appreciation For Sunshine.  This song is a bit retro and quite lovely.

4.) Sea Green – The Cush

5.) Muskrat Love – Cave Bees

6.) My Red – The Lava’s

7.) Sunflower Street – The David L. Jarvis Band

Lovely song from a talented classic Burlington musician, Dave Jarvis.  He’s been serving our country and I could not be more proud of him.  He may be in town hanging out at the OP on Monday.  Before that was a louder take on a retro song, courtesy of the Austin sisters.  I love the Cave Bees slow song, and knew that it would go great out of Sea Green.  Love the line about eyes shooting laser beams.  It’s the 4th of July.  Happy Birthday America.  I went to the fireworks last night, then went to Signal Kitchen and took a chance and saw some live music.  This next band is a friend of Burlington.

8.) Fireworks – The Tragically Hip

9.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner

10.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Talked about being alone at Signal Kitchen last night, and thinking about how being in a venue when music is about to happen, feels like home.  I dedicated it to all the people who do not know where they are in the world.  I said, a long time ago, I was in a place where I did not know what to do or where to go, and by going out to see bands, I found a home in the places where music happens.  Talked about loving the Gunner song, and maybe they would admit there was something on the radio tonight.  That song was live from Nectar’s and Tony’s, one of the guys who makes WBKM happen, kids are playing in two bands tomorrow at Nectar’s from 5-6:30.  Talked about seeing The Hip play Fireworks in Verdun, with the international Fireworks fest in the background.  Happy Birthday America!  This band has a new album coming soon.  Until it’s out, listen to this.

11.) Tic Toc – Doll Fight!

12.) Oh Dirty Blondes – The Dirty Blondes

13.) Let It Shine – Rachel Brown

14.) When Will The Light Come – Sarah Blacker

Sarah is coming to town soon.  Rachel used to sing in town a long time ago.  What a voice!  The Blondes will be playing the Precipice at the end of the month.  Joe Adler and the folks at Radio Bean are doing a great job putting the three day local music festival together.  Nice “cover” of the Lennon song  Hmmmm, Doll Fight!

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

Song after: Jungle Ride – Fish

During the outro the Rachel song started playing loud.  I may have panicked and stopped things, even though her song was not in either of the players.  It turned out that Media player just started playing.  I hope I did not mess anything up too bad.  At least it happened after the show.  After the Fish, I stuck in I dig Love from George Harrison, followed by US Blues by the Grateful Dead.  Regular programming followed, with, no doubt, lots of cool tunes.

I just got back from Internet Radio show 16 on WBKM.ORG.  Such a lovely plan, I had set.

Song before: The Rain Song – Led Zeppelin

Promo

Intro

From our small city – why is there no action on the voice level meter?  Oh no, I’m not broadcasting my voice.  Play song, play song!!!!

1.) When the Chips are Down – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

Check to see if voice is working.  Nope

2.) Wait for Me – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

Try other microphone to see if that works – nope

3.) Why We Build the Wall – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

4.) Our Lady of the Underground – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

Try mic, not happening, stack up songs and call Tony

5.) Giant Mosquitoes – Cold Sweat

6.) Holding on to Broken Glass – Jalapeno Brothers

7.) Sexy Flowers – Peg Tassey and Proud Of It

Spoke with Tony – turned off mic in system and turned back on.

Actually say: Here’s Peg Tassey but next song keeps triggering.  I let it go

8.) Dandelion Wine – The Cush

9.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees

Get myself together and say: That was the Cave Bees, they are back and playing with the band doing Doolittle by the Pixies, Parmaga, and Black Rabbit Saturday Night at Nectar’s.  Before that was the next song on New Appreciation For Sunshine.  Last week’s was slow and drifty, then this one is a straight up rocker.  Speaking of flowers, before that was sexy flowers by Peg.  Before that was a band how have been playing eastern NY a lot lately called Cold Sweat.  With all the rain lately, there are lots of mosquitoes about.  Before that was a chunk of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice as told by a Vermont artist.  Up next, happy birthday Sasha Alcott

10.) Eclipse – When Particles Collide

11.) Kindergarten – Lendway

12.) Something I drew – Farm

When you blow up your show and have lots of time, it’s nice to have a band like Farm that you can just toss in a song, and it will be great.  Before that was Lendway.  I saw their new alter-ego The High Breaks at Nectar’s last week.  The opening of that song, sounded a bit like the breaks.  Happy birthday again Sasha.  Time to close the night with the end section of Hadestown

13.) Lover’s Desire – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

14.) His Kiss, the Riot – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

15.) Doubt Comes In – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

16.) I Raise My Cup to Him – Anais Mitchel (Hadestown)

Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
