I just got back from from doing my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Considering how I placed the songs tonight I likely should have used The Old And They Young by MIDLAKE BAND as the song before, but considering the past couple of days, I had to use Flood of Sunshine.

Song before: Flood Of Sunshine – The Posies

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a warm night and the last couple of days have felt like we just had spring for a few days, and now it feels like summer. This is Sarah Blacker on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
2.) All The Kids – The New Siberians
3.) Our Work Is Never Done – PossumHaw
4.) The North – Hana Zara

I love the reference to the painted buildings in Burlington’s Old North End in that song. Great song from PossumHaw! That’s a super brand new song from Siberians. I’ve got the windows open and it feels like a warm summer night. This next artist used to be mayor of Burlington and now he’s running for President.

5.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and thirty Vermont artists
6.) Destiny Waits – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds
7.) Sweet Angel – Robert Gagnon

Lovely song by Bob! Bud and Budd are such excellent guitar players. If you like the guitar, make sure you check them out sometime. Speaking of great guitar players you really should check out.

8.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn
9.) At The Diner – Zoot Wilson
10.) Evel Kinevel – Guppyboy
11.) Rocketsled’s Funky Main Man Meets Big Joe On Church Street – Phish & Richard Haupt.

Richard showed a lot of heart playing the clarinet on Church Street every day for years. It’s cool that Phish backed him up on that. Nice cover of the Chainsaws Of Babylon by Guppy. It almost had a Legend Of A Mind sweep to it. Killer song by Zoot. Aaron is playing at Radio Bean Tuesday at nine, if you want to check him out, and you really should if you can. So, speaking of Big Joe.

12.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band
13.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
14.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
15.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith

Yet another great song from Maryse’s new album The Way It Is. Kat and the band are just so good. It’s not quite sunflower time yet, but there are tons of flowers blooming around town. Here is another cool new song.

16.) The Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
17.) Double Dare Ya – Steph Pappas
18.) Somebody Up There Loves Me – The Starline Rhythm Boys
19.) 40 Days – Better Things

BT are playing lots of shows and writing lots of music and are really good. Rhythm Boys have been playing around for years and are still going strong. Steph’s been making music in our town for a long time too. Let’s continue on through Swale’s album The Next Instead.

20.) Popular Crowd – Swale
21.) That’s That Is Is – Ninja Custodian
22.) Bullet – REDadmiral
23.) Yours Sincerely – Persian Claws
24.) Be A Good Citizen (NYC Mix) – Pinhead

Classic song with lots of good advice. The Claws are always fun! I’ve got to put in the effort to catch Admiral sometime soon. Classic from Ninja. This next artist has played tons of great shows for years and is getting a lifetime achievement award at Nectar’s tomorrow. It is extremely well deserved.

25.) Nighttime Fades – Seth Yacovone Band
26.) Film Called Life – Jer Coons
27.) How It Goes – Blue Button
28.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

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 on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It felt like I had a good mix of songs.

Song before: Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are The Sounds of Burlington. I saw a ton of music in the last couple of weeks, including last Thursday when I went to The Monkey House to see Elephants of Scotland play a killer show. I’ll get to that soon, but first it’s been such a lovely day in Burlington. It was sunny and in the high 40’s and people were out and about and the trees are budding and there are the beginnings of flowers at my house. Winter might not be quite done with us, but the signs of spring cannot be denied. This is Garden Flower by Maryse Smith on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Garden Flower – Maryse Smith
2.) Ferry Ride – Steph Pappas
3.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
4.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara

That’s another great song from Hana’s new album The North. It was so cool to be at the CD release show at Radio Bean when the place was packed, and people were singing, and it felt like a mini theater and everyone loved and bought her music. I’ll be playing more from that album in the coming weeks. Classic songs from Zoot and Steph, both of whom are Burlington legends. I think Maryse is going to play live on my show in a couple of weeks, so we have that to look forward to. Yea!! Last Saturday I went to the Monkey House and saw Swale, Hallelujah The Hills, and Villanelles and it was great. Each band was tremendous and I’m going to play one from each in this next set. Here is the next song from The Next Instead.

5.) Beaten Down – Swale
6.) Hallelujah The Hills – Hallelujah The Hills
7.) Parking Lot – Villanelles

All three bands were just great. Last Thursday, instead of doing this show, I went to the Monkey House to see Elephants of Scotland and they played a killer long set, with two exciting new songs. Last Monday they played a shorter show, with the new songs, at Nectar’s for Metal Monday, so I had to go to that too. They played this next song at both shows.

8.) Mousetrap (live) Elephants Of Scotland
9.) Yena – Brave The Vertigo
10.) Msp2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

Great song! I can’t wait for the new album!! Vertigo played after Elephants at Metal Monday and were kind of cool, though it was a little hard to get into them after the killer Elephants show. These next two artists used to play around town in the early ’90’s and have recently gotten together for a new project.

11.) Outta Site ’15 – Nother Mother Brothers
12.) T-Bone Stop Sign – Kelly Ravin
13.) Play That Part – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
14.) Shiny Side Up – Nother Mother Brothers

That’s a fun new song from David Jarvis Mark Crowther. I love the idea of being brothers even if not related. That said, it’s good to always remember to tell your family and loved ones how much you care about them. Here’s a very new artist that I don’t know much about. I think it’s a person named Gary Peters from South Burlington.

15.) Collapse Song II (The Painter) – Ghost Weapons
16.) Sparks – The Color Exchange
17.) Burn It Down, Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
18.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
19.) Windows Down – Lendway

It’s only in the ’40’s, but after the long winter, with all the sun today. there were lots of posts about driving around with the windows down. People are out and about and walking around tonight. Lendway are playing with Waylon Speed sometime soon and are at Radio Bean tonight. Cool song from Raph Worrick‘s old band. The new Phil Yates album should be out very soon. Love that song. Exchange played Nectar’s a couple of weeks ago and I still have that song in my head. Here’s a song from a new band I have not seen yet but hope to soon.

20.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
21.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
22.) Say It – Anachronist
23.) The Clown – Invisible Homes
24.) Before The Evening’s Thru – THE VACANT LOTS

The lots used to play around town a lot but now play all over the world. Lucky world. I love the “we might just all be clowns” lyric from Homes. Clowns if we’re lucky. Making people laugh and have a good time is something to aspire to. Love the Anachronist song. The FTC song was featured on the Caring Is Knowing benefit album. Burlington is great about doing albums and shows to raise money for worthy causes. I got to see a lot of cool people at the Swale show at the Monkey House last week. It was great to chat with Tyler Bolles, Maryse, Britt Shorter, and it was really nice to talk with Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell to find they are playing together with a bass player. I’m psyched to hear how that sounds. Here is some of the music of their past and present.

25.) 1,000 Lies – Sean Toohey
26.) Imaginary – Envy
27.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone

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