I just got home from my 48th local music radio show on internet only WBKM.ORG. I though it was a nice showcase of Burlington in the moment and in the glorious past.

Song before: Red Barchetta – RUSH

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a beautiful winter night in Burlington. It snowed all day yesterday but the crews have it in giant piles on Church Street, so it’s easy walking. Tonight let’s start with a band who are about to start a small tour. This is a song called Solitude by a band called Alpenglow on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Solitude – Alpenglow
2.) Spiral – Strung Out
3.) Thinner Than Water – Somah

The best part of this gig is pulling out old albums and finding gems like the Somah song, and remembering how much fun it was whenever Strung Out played Spiral. Thanks to Mike Luoma, on Monday I went to a new music venue, Arts Riot, that is in a building I worked in a long time ago. I met one of Burlington’s great artists while working there. Here is a song by the band that played Monday night, and we’ll talk about the rest on the other side.

4.) Song For Zula – Phosphorescent
5.) Check The Gravity – Wide Wail
6.) Cancer – Swale

When I worked at the Cheese Outlet, there was a sublet bakery and we sometimes used their equipment and chatted. I used to chat with Amanda Gustafson and when she told me she was joining a band, I had to go check out Wide Wail, again and again and again. They went away, so now I see her in Swale as often as I can. Next up is the next song on Maximum Soul Power.

7.) Staring Out My Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
8.) Hit – Blue Button
9.) I’m With You – Ninja Custodian

I love Ninja’s take on that song. BB are playing a show Valentines day at The Monkey House. There’s lots of other music that day, but I think I have to go that way. All I’ve got lined up this week is seeing Rush cover band Lotus Land at Higher Ground with my brother. Rough Francis always rock! I missed them last Saturday, when I went to Phoenix bookstore to listen to authors reading original sci-fi, including Luoma, who was the only one to read with each character’s voice. I then went to Club Metronome for Rock Lotto. Four bands hooked up at 10am and wrote songs and performed them at 6pm. Raph Worrick did a great job with his band.

10.) Hasta Manana Monsieur – Ray Fork
11.) If The Sea Won’t Rise – Sean Altrui

That’s just a great song from Sean. Well, hasta manana. 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 36 on internet only WBKM.ORG. It was a grey rainy day today, so I went with that mood

Song before: Hasn’t Hit Me Yet – Blue Rodeo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I had a great time at Radio Bean‘s birthday party Saturday. I saw a ton of great music. I want to thank everyone who put it on, especially Joe Adler. He and the Rangers Of Danger played a great version of this song. This is The Mime on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) The Mime – Joe Adler and The Rangers Of Danger
2.) Mississippi River – The Dwellers
3.) Catskills – Alpenglow

I’ve enjoyed seeing Alpenglow a couple of times this summer. That song reminds me of driving through the mountains of New York, just across the lake from Burlington. Gabrielle Douglas used to play Mississippi all the time. It would be great to have her come back and play it again for us. Next up, let’s play the next song on Alice Austin‘s To A Star In The Yard. Having a degree in economics and or personal relationships will help you with this song.

4.) Laissez Faire – Alice Austin
5.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
6.) This Is Our Good Night – Aya Inoue
7.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara

Hana just won the Advance music singer songwriter competition. Word has it that she really impressed some people with that song. Aya sang some soaring vocals on a song in Dripline’s set at the Bean birthday bash. I’ve seen her occasionally, over a few years, and am always happy when she’s on the bill, because I’ve always had a good time when she plays. Maryse had a good set at the Bean, though it was buried by talking and coffee drinks. She persevered like a champ and played a sweet version of Good Thing when the audience quieted down. Swale had a great set at the Bean, and played a killer show the night before Halloween. They opened with this:

8.) Armadillo – Swale
9.) High On A Good Day – Chuch
10.) If The Sea Won’t Rise – Sean Altrui

It was fun checking out Sean’s album for Halloween. I liked this song so much I wanted to play it today. Chuch have been around for a while and that’s a pretty cool song. Swale will be part of the Lou Reed tribute night at The Monkey House on Saturday. It will be fun. OK, time to rock. Here is a brand new song from Black Rabbit.

11.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit
12.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees
13.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
14.) Projector – Vetica

Per Andrew from Vetica, they have broken up. Rats! Hopefully they will put something new together. Per Facebook, Poxy are no more. Rats! I hope they put something new together too. The Cave Bees just played a killer set at the Bean. They are probably heading to Texas soon, maybe we’ll get lucky and they play another show before they go. Black Rabbit singing about JFK. 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 my local music internet radio show, number 35, on WBKM.ORG. It was Halloween, so I decided to have some fun. I came up with the idea a while ago, but wasn’t sure if I could pull it off. I think I did. I thought, what if I was hanging out with a traveler between worlds, and I got caught in a spirit world. I thought he would do the show and open a door back for me.

Song before: Please Mr. Gravedigger – David Bowie

into

Good Evening. It is I, Mister E Ghoul, here to play some songs for you, on Halloween. Unfortunately, the one you quaintly know as Tim, cannot be here this evening. Earlier, we were chatting with the spirits, and they lured him over, to the other side. But the spirits, are like your mortals, and subject to fear. Maybe we can scare them into, sending Tim back to you. Let’s begin, with a band, quaintly called farm, and their tale of the Devil on WBKM. Boo!lington’s kind of music.

1.) Devil – Farm
2.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
3.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
4.) Vampyre – David L. Jarvis

Again, it is I, Mister E Ghoul. Poor Tim, has yet to return. Surely the lure of his friend Dave Jarvis, and the fright of the dreaded vampyre, should have worked. But No. They seem unmoved by Alice Austin’s tale of the Graveyard Before Dark, and of Anais Mitchell’s Our Lady Of The Underground. ‘Tis no matter. I shall continue on. Perhaps Tim’s friends in Cold Sweat, and their tale of Monsters, will sever the spirits hold. If not, some chaotic music of Burlington shall emanate, from what you quaintly call, WBKM, and the borders between the worlds shall break down.

5.) Monsters – Cold Sweat
6.) Hedgehogs – The Toes
7.) Death – Cccome?
8.) Theme Song – Shark Victim

It is I, again, and Tim is still locked from this earthly realm. The borders are beginning to shimmer, as some spirits remember passing on, as victims of sharks. Tim’s friends Michael Clifford and J Boom Mateik have done well, but not well enough. Tim has the deepest respect for Lee Anderson, and his earthly incarnation, Radio Bean. His band Cccome? and their song Death, could have brought him back, but the spirtis have a stronger hold him than I thought, or he has a stronger hold on them. I thought for sure the lure of the quirky band called The Toes, and their tale of Heghogs, would compel Tim to return, to what you quaintly call a dance floor. But no matter. It’s time to get serious. How many spirits can we catch in Vedora’s Dragnet, that was released from WBKM?

9.) Dragnet – Vedora
10.) When The Lord Comes – The Vacant Lots
11.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian

Again it is I, Mister E Ghoul. The Contrarian’s tale of the Tarot and the Knight Ov Swords, has visibly, or invisibly, to most of you, shaken the spirits, and yet their grip remains. The Vacant Lots story, of When The Lord Comes, has started to open a door, but will Tim come back through? It’s time for the ultimate lure, not that it really matters, mind you, for Tim is perfectly safe. While he is still lost, there is no danger. But there comes a time, when you must dwell in your world, and I must dwell in mine. The power of Tim’s friend Sean Altrui, and the lure of his love for Swale, should be enough to bring him back.

12.) If You Get Lost – Swale
13.) Sirens – Sean Altrui

(Sirens is a drum only song that gets more and more intense. As it was playing, I kicked on the microphone, which lowered the song volume, and with speakers on in the room, which produced a freaky echo, as Ghoul, chanted the following:

On this night of Hallow’s eve
When crossing plains you can achieve
Know the realm that thall shalt dwell
Release to theirs break this spell
Send Tim home without delay
To Burlington straghtaway

I went through it twice, then kicked the drums back to full sound. They rocked hard for two minutes, then I mixed it directly into the Sinatra outro)

Hey guys, Tim here. What’s happening? Oh no, it’s 10 and my show is already over. I got it all set, then was waiting for E, I, um, er, must have dozed off on the couch. I’m so sorry about that. Hmm, the list of songs that just played are my set list, did E play it for you? I’m so embarrassed, I don’t know what to do. I guess all I can do is play my next song. This is Fish’s most Halloween song.

Song After: Shadowplay – Fish
