Song before: The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range – Roger Waters


From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Since my last show America has attacked Syria and all sorts of salacious stores are crawling through the news. Let’s begin tonight with a couple of songs that speak about what news we consume and looking at the bigger picture.

1.) Film At 11 – Jason Baker
2.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Practicing – Steady Betty
4.) Get Lost – Kelly Ravin Music

That’s the second song on Kelly’s new album Engine. The third song will come next week. Yea, I finally have a song by Steady Betty to play. Yea. Great songs from Jeremy and Jason about the information we receive and how we deal with it. OK, I’ve got a treat for you tonight. Let’s go back in time to a hot summer night out on a ferry boat. It was the first time they played in town and it made them legends. They’ve since played Vermont many times for many years to huge adoring audiences. This is the night that it all began.

That was the complete show that they did on the ferry. I hope you enjoyed the rock and Gordie’s wonderful rants. OK, so this next band just released a new album and are having a party at ArtsRiot tonight. Here are a few of the songs.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG runs from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday August 31. You can stream it from this link: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Texas Flood – Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble


From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight I want to send my heart out to the people of Texas and encourage all of you to help if you can. Take your time and find a worthy charity since this will be going on for a long time. Let’s begin tonight with a recording from Robot Dog Studio from earlier this year.

1.) Able To Breathe – Peter Burton
2.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Your Eyes – Forest Gray
4.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard

Francesca is pretty amazing and will be at Foam Brewers tomorrow night. I caught a set by Forest at Nectar’s last Saturday and really enjoy his music. Nice song about looking back from Jeremy and sweet song from Peter. OK, here is the next song on Loose Tooth, the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week.

5.) 45 – Clever Girls
6.) Stardust For Dessert – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
8.) Nature – Madaila

Madaila are throwing a huge party all day Saturday and will block off Main street in front of Nectar’s and play with a bunch of other bands. You’ve just got to love them. I caught a set by Milton on Tuesday at Light Club Lamp Shop and his band the Grim Work are really good. Great song from David about the Paris attacks and how we can change from being alive to stardust in an instant. Clever are playing at The Monkey House tomorrow and always put on a great show, though there’s so many other shows happening that night too. OK, there is a cool after Madaila party at Nectar’s and this band will be there.

9.) Felon – SWALE
10.) The Perfect Map – Elephants of Scotland
11.) Constant Disaster – When Particles Collide
12.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS

Francis will be at the after show party at Nectar’s too and I’m very excited. Particles played a great version of that last night at the Monkey House. Elephants are playing a show in New Haven Vermont on Saturday with their new bass player Robert Gagnon. Hmmm, Swale. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live songs from Savage Hen. It’s another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog Studio.

13.) Voodoo Revenge – Savage Hen
14.) The Wrong List – Savage Hen
15.) Clever Girl – Savage Hen
16.) Local Lore – Savage Hen

I want to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound so good and to thank Jack Kubera, Matthew Bryan Hagen and Jeremy Gartner for rocking so hard. OK, let’s keep rocking.

17.) Comm To Space – Rough Francis
18.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
19.) TFAY – Elephants Of Scotland
20.) Elevator – Swale

I’m so psyched to see Swale and Francis and am thinking the timing might be too tight to get back from New Haven in time. Sigh. Particles played that one last night too. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
22.) The Meanest Thing I’ll Ever Write – Milton Busker
23.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
24.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls

Clever have been opening with that song and I’m so glad they did a Robot Dog session with me so I have a copy to play for you. Yet another great song from David. Milton’s albums sound different from his band but the songs have the same basic structure. They played a cool version of that on Tuesday. I love that Madaila song. I really like this song too.

25.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
26.) You’re Not Listening – Forest Gray
27.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
28.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton

I thought I’d end where I began with great songs from Peter and Jeremy. Forest played a cool version of that on Saturday at Nectar’s. Francesca writes such great songs. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

The night I met Stevie Ray Vaughan   Leave a comment

Backstage pass 1989 pic by Tim Lewis



I still remember the night clearly. Stevie and the band played a killer show then Mike and I and several others went backstage. I had met a couple of rock stars by then so I wasn’t worried about getting an autograph but when I saw him signing other peoples backstage passes I though it would be good to have him sign mine, since I intended to keep it for life. I was all super-confident when standing in line but when it was my turn I turned to mush and meekly asked him if he would sign it. He asked my name then signed it to Tim. He shook my hand and I’ve never felt a handshake that strong since. I meekly said that I really enjoyed the show and the last time I saw him was when he opened for Robert Pant at the Montreal Forum. He asked if I had ever met Robert and said he was a wonderful person and I really should meet him if I ever got the chance. He kept talking with me for several minutes and really cared. He was a great human being and one of the most tremendous guitar players I have ever seen.

I believe that was in 1989.
