Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time Thursday January 4th. It can be streamed from our website or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: A Dark Light – Aram Bedrosian

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s winter time and the cold and snow are here. We just cruised past New Year’s Day and are diving into 2018. Let’s fill it with art and compassion and music. Let’s begin with an artist who just released a new song for the new year.

1.) Maria – Francesca Blanchard
2.) Mama – Ivamae
3.) Stormy Day – Robin Gottfried
4.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

Andriana played a lovely show last Friday at Radio Bean and closed with that one. Robin Gottfried played a recent Thursday and I missed it but hopefully they will be back for a show I can attend soon. Ivamae played after Andriana last Friday. It was a great night. Great new song from Francesca. OK, here is the next song on Black, Blue, and White.

5.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians
6.) Raise Your Head – Gang of Thieves
7.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
8.) Safe To Say – SWALE

I spent New Year’s Eve at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts and Swale put on a wonderful show. Thieves closed the night by rocking hard. Great songs from Ninja and the Siberians. So, last night was a new episode of The X-Files and this song has been running though my head all week.

9.) The Invixibles – Black Rabbit
10.) You Will Fall – Kelly Ravin
11.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
12.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine

QT were Alice and Julia Austin‘s band after Zola Turn. They worked with Jeff Moxley who is now working with Peg to produce the upcoming album from Miriam Bernardo. I wanted to play the Peg song to remind us all that abuse of and predatory behavior are not just issues that effect large companies but also exist in our community. The local punk community is currently struggling to figure out the best way to deal with this and it’s great that they are trying. You want to encourage people who behave badly to improve but at what point will someone not change and you just have to cut ties. It’s a challenge that will hopefully create new spaces of acceptance and power for women. OK, great songs from Kelly and Rabbit. I saw Rabbit last Saturday with this next band.

13.) The Art Of Vandalay – Sad Turtle
14.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
15.) The Meanest Thing I’ll Ever Write – Milton Busker
16.) Pauses – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot

That’s Lowell with Bill Mullins, Kirk Flanagan, and Steve Hadeka and it’s such a cool song. Great song from Milton. He played a great version of it last week at Light Club Lamp Shop with his band The Grim Work. Great song from Abbie who is now in the band Hammydown. Turtle are so cool. OK, I’ve been watching X-Files and just got the new Twin Peaks so let’s play this song.

17.) Doppelganger – Lendway
18.) Judgment Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
19.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time
20.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western

Western used to play rocking shows around town. Fun song from Eastern. Great new song from David and the band. Cool song form Lendway. This next band are at The Monkey House on Saturday.

21.) Let The Cold In – Mr. Doubtfire
22.) Heavy Winter Heavy Snow – My First Days On Junk
23.) Mush – Phantom Suns
24.) You’re The Target – Casey Merlin Rae

Nice rocker from Casey. Cool song from Ryan Cohen and his band. Great songs from Junk and Doubtfire. This was one of my first favorite prog bands who would come to town now and then.

25.) Hey Ernie – Cold Sweat
26.) Errol McSquisitor – Elephants of Scotland
27.) The Road – Anders Parker
28.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Great rocker from Seth. Anders and Cloud Badge are on the road this weekend. Classics from Elephants and Sweat. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week shall we?

Swale 016

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday August 17th. It can be streamed at our Facebook page here: WBKM or at WBKM.ORG and will go as follows:

Song before: Kill The King – Rainbow

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a beautiful night in town but has been a challenging week for our country. We got to see the forces of fear spread a message of hate. We got to see lovely people stand up to it and we saw a lovely person die and her mother show us what strength and grace are. We have to fight this with love. Let’s begin tonight with a song about love.

1.) Can you Love Me Too? – Bethany Conner Music
2.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue
3.) All We Need – Eastern Mountain Time
4.) Haze – gneiss

Great song by the lovely people in Gneiss. They will be at Red Square next Wednesday. I want to go but have a couple of other things happening that night. Check them out if you are downtown. Eastern are filming a video next Tuesday at The Monkey House at 6:30. I may work through it but love the lyrics in that song. Cricket and Bethany and others are playing at Farnham Ale & Lager VT on Saturday and it sounds like a great day of music. There is a lot of beauty in both of those songs, and we need beauty now more than ever. When confronted with so many emotions and images it can get overwhelming and sometimes a filter is needed.

5.) Great Filter – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag (Mike Luoma)
7.) Are We Mad? – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
8.) This Machine – Invisible Homes

As we have seen this weekend, and may see again this coming weekend, we will need to stand up to hate and fascism. Let’s use machines like guitars to fight the hate. We will have to do this alone since the man in the Oval Office has no intention of standing against hate. David and the band ask us an important question about our ability to elect such a man. Brother Zag wrote that song a long time ago and asking if our President is insane is more relevant than ever. Great song by Jeremy. OK, let’s ease off politics for a bit. It’s important to speak out but it’s important to keep making the world a lovely place. Last week I played the last song from 1881’s Light’s Camera Action “album” so it’s time to start a new one. This is a short one but all the songs are great. It’s called Loose Tooth by a band called Clever Girls and here is the first song.

9.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
10.) Days Like These – Dysfunkshun
11.) Rock And Roll Is My Weapon – Ninja Custodian
12.) Sequoia 3 – Binger

I love the lyric in that song. We all started from the same root. We have grown in our own beautiful ways but we are all connected at the base. It’s important to remember that. If you want to stand up to hate and use rock and roll as your weapon, you have my blessing. That’s what I’m going to do. Dysfunkshun played back in the ’90’s and were always politically aware and Richard Bailey recently said if you are not political you are not punk. They will get the band back together in a few weeks at Higher Ground and I want to thank HG for sponsoring us here at WBKM. Great song from the Girls. I got to see them 3 times last week. OK, when you hear hate speech, please reject it.

13.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
14.) Full Moon Dark Places – Bull & Prairie
15.) Willow II – Tyler Daniel Bean
16.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

Great song from the Breaks who will play at Foam Brewers tomorrow night. Tyler is on the road playing shows and will come by the Monkey House soon. He has a video about that song that delves into depression and we as a community don’t do mental health all that well. I want to thank him for helping us understand. I don’t know much about Bull except that they are from central Vermont and really rock. Thanks Ryan Cohen for turning me on to them. Rabbit are so great. These next two bands will be at Nectar’s on Monday with another band for a fun punk show.

17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
19.) Insanity/Healing Dreams – Peg Tassey MUSIC
20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait

Vermont is liberal and conservative. We get really hot and we get really cold. We have people who believe in the alt right and we have people that love people. We are complex. In the midst of the insanity we will need Peg Tassey‘s healing dreams. The Doubtfire song begins with a quote from Trump saying ‘there’s no problem” but there is and he seems to be the only one who doesn’t notice it. Grand are one of the most fun rock bands ever. OK, this next band will be at Nectar’s tomorrow.

21.) Laughing Jim – The Edd
22.) Prog Noir – Stick Men (Official)
23.) Rainy Alley – Totally Submerged
24.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow

Such a lovely song by the lovely Rutland band. Submerged play everywhere and I really like that song. Stick are a Crimsonesque band who will be at Higher Ground next Wednesday. I love the prog rock of the Edd. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Before The Evening’s Thru – THE VACANT LOTS
26.) Black, Blue & White – The New Siberians
27.) The Road – Anders Parker
28.) Every Last One Of Us – SWALE

If you feel alone and scared there are people like Swale and myself who care and want to help. This world can be beautiful and needs every last one of us in our highest and most loving capacity. Anders was at ArtsRiot on Saturday and I was sick and missed it but am sure it was a great show. Great songs form Siberians and the Lots. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music, and the love, of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Hey guys, Tim here for one more song. It will be a Fish song as always, and tonight’s has a very civic minded intro. Before I get to that I want to go back a few years and play a song that demands to be played after the events of this week.

Songs after:

Nazi Punks Fuck Off – Dead Kennedys
Vigil In A Wilderness Of Mirrors – Fish
Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
Private Public Breakdown – Alice Cooper
Murder – David Gilmour
Fireball – Alice Cooper

Song before: Over The Rainbow/Kill The King – Rainbow

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s spring and flowers are coming out and the leaves are beginning to form on the trees. I’ve been watching the lilac leaves come out and now the flowers are beginning to form. Let’s begin tonight with a brand new song from Binger’s brand new album Skeptics.

1.) Look At The Lilacs – Binger
2.) Doreen – Slingshot Dakota

Tomorrow is the beginning of a massive 3 day music festival called Waking Windows. It will be held at many venues all around the Winooski traffic circle. It runs Friday from 5pm-2am, Saturday from noon to 2am and Sunday from 11zm to midnight. Hundreds of bands will play. Many will be local and many from out of town. Tyler and Dino will both play early on Friday. Slingshot are not part of the festival but are in town next Tuesday at the Monkey House. I love the new Binger album. Here are some more of the bands who will play on Friday.

5.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
6.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

9.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
10.) I Got A Job – Maryse Smith
11.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No
12.) Heartbreak Baby – Villanelles

That is a song from Villanelles new album Blue Heart Attack. There is a chance they will play that one Friday at WW. Mountain said they are only playing new songs, so likely Ricky will not get played, but I had to pick something of theirs. I love that song. Maryse and Phil are playing on Friday too. These next bands are playing late on Friday. .

13.) Waiting For You – Swale
14.) Money Gnomes – Arc Iris
15.) The Big One – The High Breaks

The Breaks will close out Friday. I’m so psyched to see Iris again. Their shows are so great. Hmmm, Swale. OK, here are some bands that will play Saturday at Waking Windows.

16.) The First Of May – Colin Nicholas Clary
17.) The Champagne Room – The Smittens
18.) Let Go – Lowell Thompson
19.) What If – REDadmiral
20.) Siddhartha – Wren Kitz

Wren has a set at WW on Saturday. That’s a new song from Admiral. Perhaps they will play it on Saturday. Lowell always puts on a great show. Since it’s now May, I had to play the Colin song and one from his band The Smittens, who are playing WW on Saturday. OK, it’s time for the next song on the album Callisto. Alpenglow are playing WW on Saturday too.

21.) Following The Scene – Alpenglow
22.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
23.) The Alchemist – Pours

Pours have a set at WW on Saturday. So do Madaila and Alpenglow. These next bands have sets on Saturday too.

24.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees
25.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
26.) Black And Red – Rough Francis

Saturday should be great at Waking Windows. Here are some of the bands who will play Sunday at WW.

27.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
28.) The Feeling – Vedora
29.) Shoreline In Jersey – Joe Adler

Joe will be playing at Waking Windows with Wee Folkestra on Sunday. Vedora are not playing, but Matt Hastings has a set as Ver Sacrum and Caroline Marie has a set. Heavy plains will no doubt rock. OK, there are a ton of other bands playing on Suday, but I want to go back to the new Binger album to close the show.

30.) Resurrection In Sanskrit I – Binger
31.) Resurrection In Sanskrit II – Binger

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

http://wbkm.org/

Song before the recording: Weeping Willow – Persian Claws

After Everything – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a beautiful night in the Queen city and there is a ton of stuff happening this weekend. Grace Potter is filling the waterfront with killer local and national bands Saturday and Sunday. It’s Pride week. The Art Hop is happening in the South End. Before I get to all the great stuff coming up, I want to mention a show I caught last week. Rue Mevlana put on a truly stunning spectacle of stage and music. They wove casual and classic stories with a hypnotic light and image show. Here is a hint of what the music was like.

1.) Hermaphroditus – Rue Mevlana
2.) Empty Frequency – Rue Mevlana
3.) Magenta Man – Rue Mevlana

That show was beyond words, which is unusual for me. OK, Grace is bringing a few national bands this weekend, but here are some wonderful local bands who will be there too.

4.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
5.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
6.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
7.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains

Four really cool songs from four really cool bands who are all going to play great shows this weekend on the waterfront. Tomorrow at the Art Hop these bands are playing at Arts Riot and nearby.

8.) Coming Down Again – Waylon Speed
9.) See You At Eight – Villanelles
10.) Staring Out The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
11.) Let’s Go Crazy – Prince

I saw Prince once (thanks Kevin Joseph Ryan) and he was amazing, Unfortunately, Prince is not actually playing the Art Hop. However, a bunch of local musicians, with Craig Mitchell singing, will play a show called Operation Prince. It should be a wild time. The other three are playing at Arts Riot and that will be a great time as well. A little farther down Pine st, these next three bands are playing at Zero Gravity Brewery. The singer for the first band was also part of the Rue show.

12.) Toejam – The Toes
13.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
14.) Alienation – Black Rabbit

Black Rabbit have a new drummer and are ready to rock us hard. BB rock hard too. The Toes are so delightfully quirky, and rock hard too. I’ve seen this next band several times in town and am always blown away. They are a killer rock band and two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. I’m so psyched for their show next Wednesday at The Monkey House.

15.) Intro – Slingshot Dakota
16.) May Day – Slingshot Dakota
17.) Wave – Slingshot Dakota
18.) Grudge – Slingshot Dakota

I just saw that song on bandcamp and really liked it. Wave is a killer song from the first album. The first two are from the second. I can’t wait to see you Carly Comando and Tom Patterson!! OK, it’s time to play the last song on the stunning album JV. I guess I have to start a new album next week.

19.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
20.) I Don’t Know How To Love Him – Jesus Christ Superstar
21.) Superstar – Jesus Christ Superstar

The Mountain Says No are playing the Art Hop on Saturday, so if you like that song, Go Check Them Out! I played the two songs from Jesus Christ Superstar in honor of my father, who died suddenly on Tuesday. That was, maybe, the only music that we both really loved. It’s hard knowing that he will never be there again, while wondering where, if anywhere, he is now. It’s been a long few days, but there have been so many wonderful people sending good thoughts that I can feel the love being sent to me and my mom and brother. I want to just play some of the music that has inspired me and made me feel love. Do not be offended if your music was not played, I’m just grasping for any lifelines that I think of. I don’t have enough time in the show to grasp even a third. I love you all for how you have helped and know we will all be there for anyone going through such a tough time. I want to start with a song from a man who’s love even radiates through social media posts. Last week I saw Joe Adler, who recently lost his father, talk about seeing a bird every time someone has died, and feeling like their soul might be in the bird. I don’t have the song Little Bird to play, so let’s start with the above mentioned, love radiating, Aaron Flinn.

22.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
23.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler
24.) Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone – Kiki’s Lost Nation
25.) New Appreciation For Sunshine – The Cush

I want to thank you indeed. Thanks for all the kind words, all of you. Life is full of joy and pain and dad always wanted to help the downtrodden. I think this song is highly appropriate.

26.) Joyless – Swale
27.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
28.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
29.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone

I always got such a timeless feeling from that song. Thanks Matt Hutton. Thanks Phil Yates, and OMG thank you Raph Worrick. Thanks Rebecca Rogers, Diane Sullivan, and make sure you send lots of love to Ornan McLean and his family, because they need it too! Amanda Gustafson, Eric Olsen, you’ve been fantastic. OK, here is another song that I’ve just always loved and really want to play.

30.) Once Upon – Vedora
31.) Sequoia 2 – Binger

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

I always play a Fish song after my show, because I love his music and his ideas and his fantastic way of expressing them through his very intense lyrics. This week I just got an album I’ve been waiting for and just love this song. I don’t have to be up early so I can hang out a bit later tonight, so let’s go.
