Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM in the Champlain Valley, also streaming at our website, will go as follows:

Song before: Soul Eternal – Anderson Ponty Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington, but something unusual happened late Monday night. A meteor with a blue trail sailed over Vermont and could be seen all around New England. Let’s begin with a brand new song that speaks of meteors.

1.) Oysters – Jane Boxall Percussion with Miriam Bernardo
2.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker
3.) Spirit Won’t Fall Down – Rachel Brown
4.) Sharktopus – Villanelles

That’s a cool new song from Villanelles cool new album Blue Heart Attack. Spirit is a song from Burlington’s ’90’s and I still remember seeing Rachel and how powerful her voice is. Great song from Milton who is at Light Club Lamp shop tonight at 8pm. Jane just put out a new album called Field Notes. Miriam’s voice just makes that song. OK, it’s time for the next song on Callisto.

5.) Look Ahead – Alpenglow
6.) Too Much – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Hallelujah – Dirty Blondes
8.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

That’s a brand new song from the brand new Elephants album The Perfect Map. I had a great time seeing the Blondes at Nectar’s on Monday and while listening, I knew I wanted to play that one for you. Great new song from Slingshot. Their new album Break is still keeping me listening to it. Great new song from Alpenglow. This next band are at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow.

9.) Edible – SWALE
10.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
11.) Finder – Madelines
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons filled a rock void in the early 200’s and played some killer shows. Finder is a classic from the ’90’s. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell from Envy are playing in their new band The Nancy Druids at Radio Bean on Friday at 10pm. I really enjoyed seeing this next band a little over a week ago at The Monkey House

13.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
14.) Say It – Anachronist
15.) Speed Car – Torpedo Rodeo
16.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath

SS are really The High Breaks when they play Sabbath covers. They did such a great job rearranging the songs into a surf style. I saw Torpedo a few times in the early 00’s and always had a rocking time. I love Say It!! Better should have lots of cool new music coming soon. OK, let’s go back to the ’80’s. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to go.

17.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
18.) Melt – Chin Ho
19.) East Jabib – REDadmiral
20.) The Summer Of Andy – Cancer Conspiracy

CC played some great music back in the ’90’s. That’s a pretty new song from Admiral. They are playing Sunday at Radio Bean. I played Chin Ho’s cover as an homage to the ’80’s Ladies who have the show before me on Thursday nights at 7pm on WBKM. That song from the Decentz always gets me moving. A former local musician and music writer who has been working at the Future Of Music Coalition, Casey Merlin Rae, has just moved on to a job with SiriusXM. Congratulations. Here is one of his solo songs.

21.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian
22.) Another Life Ago – The Cush
23.) Before The Evenings Thru – THE VACANT LOTS

The lots used to play around in the early 10’s but are now touring the US and touring the world. Great song from the Cush’s first album. They played that song many times in Burlington. Yea Casey! This next song is pretty new and catchy as can be.

24.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
25.) Random Earth – Elephants Of Scotland
26.) For Buddy – Elephants Of Scotland

Those are the two last songs on Elephant’s new album The Perfect Map. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Songs after: Where In The World – Fish
13th Star – Fish

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It had a swing at the beginning then rocked through the end.

Song before: Distant Early Warning – Rush

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Life in Burlington has seen a ton of rain and lots of sunny beautiful days, or parts of days. This is a song from the early 2000’s from a band from Rutland. This song has been playing in my head a lot lately, so now I’m going to play it for you. This is If I Go by Will on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) If I Go – Will
2.) Waiting For You – Swale
3.) Think I’ll Go – Great Western
4.) Precious Time – The Cush

The Cush built their first album in Texas then moved to Vermont for a few years. I saw as many shows as I could and that is such a great song. Killer song from Western. Hopefully, they have new stuff coming soon. That’s such a fun Swale song and sounded as good coming out of the Will song as I hoped. This next singer is playing this weekend in Hinesburgh at the Northern Sun Music Festival with a bass player and drummer. I bet it will rock.

5.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
6.) Einstein-Rosen Bridge – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) The Whole – Milton Busker
8.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith

Maryse Smith is playing at Signal Kitchen tomorrow. What a great song. I have not caught up with Milton in a while, but hope to soon. Cool lyrics that make you think from Jeremy. Hopefully, I will get to see Aaron and his band really rock sometime soon. Like the first song in the set tonight, this song has been going through my head a lot lately.

9.) The Territory – Hana Zara
10.) Let It Shine – Rachel Brown
11.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
12.) In The Rain – Plan B

It’s been raining like crazy lately and was supposed to rain today. No sign of it yet, it’s really been a beautiful day. I’ve always loved that Dave song. Rachel used to unleash her killer voice in this town a lot. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. It will be released July 27 when they play The Monkey House.

13.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
14.) Bomb – Envy
15.) Original Original – Black Rabbit
16.) Weapons Factory – The Wards

Classic song from the band that lead the punk wave in Burlington back in the ’80’s. Killer new Rabbit song! Killer classic from Envy. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell who played in that band are in a new band called The Nancy Druids. Definitely check them out when they play Radio Bean a couple of Monday’s from now. Hmmm, Mountain. OK, let’s keep on playing some recent Burlington punk music.

17.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
18.) Black Oil – Doom Service
19.) Asphyxia – Better Things
20.) Blue Lights – As We Were
21.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

If you want a heavy rock band, you could not do better than Rough Francis. They are at Higher Ground tonight opening for Bad Religion. As play it fast and hard and fun and I’ve loved the couple of times I’ve seen them. Better keep writing music and playing shows and I cant’ wait to see where they go next. Doom always rock hard. I miss Poxy. This next artist used to play all the time in Burlington. She’s coming back for a visit. Will she play a show? I hope so.

22.) Vicarious – Alice Austin
22.) Sequoia II – Binger
23.) These Are Some Things – When Particles Collide
24.) Stop – REDadmirial

I’ve got to get out and see admiral. They are playing the Northern Sun Music Festival too, but I have to work on Saturday and Sunday I’m meeting Mom and Dad and Ken for a Father’s Day lunch then heading to Montreal to see Rush with Ken. Killer song from Particles who are on the road now. Go check them out! Cool song form Binger. It’s almost the Solstice and the longest day of the year. It makes me feel like this song.

25.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
26.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim
27.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
28.) Relief – Death World Wide

Killer song from the bands new album N.E.W. Love that Vetica song. Killer song from Slowdim. I’d love someone to bring that Boston band to town. Sarah’s on the road. Check her out if she comes to your town! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the release of Misplaced Childhood, so the songs after were: Childhood’s End->White Feather (live) – Fish

After wrapping up the show, the rain came. It was a very wet walk home with shifting winds. The umbrella helped, but it was a very wet walk.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I thought of a fun idea and pulled it off pretty well.

Song before: The Old And The Young – MIDLAKE BAND

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cool and snowy night in Burlington. We got 11 inches Wednesday but the roads and sidewalks are pretty passable. Thanks DPW! Tonight I’m going to alternate new and old songs to highlight the great talent in this town. Let’s start with a couple of songs from the soundtrack to some cool underwater Vermont videos. This is Maidstone by I See Fish People on WBKM and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Maidstone – I See Fish People
2.) Burette’s Green River – I See Fish People
3.) Deal – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds

Great guitar playing on the Dead cover. Lots of people in Vermont still love the Dead and The Buds played a killer version of that. Nice build in the middle! The Fish people CD just came out this week, and is as new as it gets. OK, let’s play another new song. Doug McAllister was in Ninja Custodian a long time ago and is now in California with a new band called Super Music Band.

4.) Not Everything Is About You – Super Music Band
5.) Monkey Business – Ninja Custodian
6.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin
7.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians

It really has been a while since the Siberians album came out. They should have something new soon, and I think Ryan Power is working on it. Great new song from Alice. That’s Doug singing the classic Ninja song. It was cool to hang out with Ted Pappadopoulos from the Siberians at Manhattan Pizza and Pub last Friday at the Black Rabbit show. Here is the last song on their EP Lipstick And Dynamite that I’m playing all the way through.

8.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
9.) Kick The Can – Cave Bees
10.) Time To Save The World – Carraway
11.) Medula Mamblongatta – Strung Out

I remember seeing them at the Chicken Bone Cafe. That was a while ago. Carraway just put out an excellent new EP. Classic from the Bees who have been in an out of the scene for a long time. Man those Rabbit shows with Jane Boxall Percussion on drums are getting really intense. Here’s a song that came out last year.

12.) Mirrors – Vetica
13.) No More Sex – Pinhead
14.) In Comes The Tide – PossumHaw

Great song from the Waiting and Watching album from earlier this year. Classic song from Pinhead. OK, let’s head back to the ’90’s for a great piece of music.

15.) Poem For Torin/Ethan’s Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC
16.) Eliza – Alpenglow
17.) Let It Shine – Rachel Brown

Rachel used to unleash her beautiful and powerful voice on us back in the ’90’s. Great new song from Alpenglow’s Chapel EP. Here’s another new song that I just love.

18.) 40 Days – Better Things
19.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
20.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS

Francis just re-released the Maximum Soul Power Album this year on Riot House Records. Death was their fathers band, then Dannis and Bobby were in Lambsbread playing reggae when I got into the music scene. They rocked a bit harder before that. Up next is another classic rocker from the ’90’s.

21.) Decide – David L. Jarvis
22.) Before The Night – Swale
23.) Let Up – Construction Joe

It’s been a while since I thought of Joe and that is a great song. I love that Swale song! I want to dedicate this next song to the magnificent Joe Adler who just lost his father. Somehow I just know he’s up there looking down at Joe with lots of love.

24.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
25.) Extended Werewolf – farm

There’s only so much time indeed. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we.

outro

(yea, not my best ending!!)

Hey guys, Tim here for one more song. It’s a Fish song as always. He’s just played some killer shows and has some sold out ones coming up. Here’s the first song on the new album, A Feast Of Consequences. This is Perfume River by Fish, and even though he’s from Scotland, this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music on WBKM.

Song after: Perfume River – Fish

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 popped back on the mic and expressed my great pleasure that the fans just got a vote for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and this year Rush was chosen. I queued up the following as I walked out the door

Closer to the Heart – Rush

Cygnus X-1 – Rush

Xanadu – Rush

Then the station went into the next regularly scheduled Jethro Tull song

The walk home had the wind at my back. It was so furious, I felt like a reverse comet.
