Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 28 and can be streamed from our website or this Facebook page link WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Train In Vain – The Clash

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. What a crazy week, it’s been like summer and in the ’90’s and suddenly today it’s a chilly fall day. You’ve got to love Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a band who are about to release a new album called Most Every Night.

1.) Get Loud – Near North
2.) Jesse – The Parts
3.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
4.) Wicked World – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

It’s so cool that the Breaks did the whole album of Sabbath songs in a surf style. I’m playing it all the way through song after song week after week. Cool song from Phil’s upcoming album. Great song from The Parts. Thanks Near North for sending me a copy of your new album on blue vinyl. It sounds great. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM Live At Robot Dog.

1.) Intro->Accidental Graveyard-> The Dead Shakers
2.) Taung Child -> – The Dead Shakers
3.) Superpowers -> – The Dead Shakers
4.) Medfield – The Dead Shakers

Thanks to Ryan Cohen from Robot Dog for making us all sound so great and thanks Burlington Beer Company for the libations. I especially want to thank The Dead Shakers for taking us on a rocking journey. OK, this next band have been playing around for ages and Mr. Charlie Frazier is a local legend. He has kept Vermont’s desire for the music of The Grateful Dead going for years.

5.) Intros -> – Blues for Breakfast, the band
6.) Scarlet Begonias -> – Blues For Breakfast
7.) Music Never Stopped – Blues For Breakfast

Vermont loves the music of the Dead and Mr. Charlie’s dedication to the blues. So, this weekend it was so hot I’m sure lots of people headed to the beach.

8.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
9.) Kindergarten – Lendway
10.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
11.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone

Great song from Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton. Druids are Sean’s new band and they are playing Saturday at The Monkey House so go check them out. I miss Lendway. All last week was beach weather. It’s getting late in the year and darkness is coming earlier.

12.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
13.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
14.) Cheese Whiz Salad – Wren Kitz
15.) Queen City – Cave Bees

I’m psyched that the Bees have that recorded so I can play it for you. Burlington is The Queen City and I rock it as many nights as I can. I caught Wren Kitz and his band at Club Metronome last week and they were stunning. Lauren Costello plays in Wren’s band and in The Dead Shakers. Great songs from Andriana and David. Josh Shedaker plays in The Dead Shakers and in this next band. He just lost his grandmother so we want to send him lots of love.

16.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
17.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
18.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
19.) Mary – Plan B

That’s a classic from the ’80’s. I love the truth in Joe’s song that we are all brothers and sisters and that we should take care of each other in times of pain and in times of joy. Great rockers from Seth and Dino. We all have a limited amount of time on this world so please spend it well.

20.) Precious Time – The Cush
21.) So They Say – The New Siberians
22.) 45 – Clever Girls
23.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

Classic song from Anais. Clever are at The Monkey House tomorrow so go check them out. Great songs from Siberians and The Cush. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. It’s a bit of a slow week but tomorrow at noon tickets go on sale for The English Beat, if that is of interest. That show is coming up in September. It was so great to hear and see the dynamic songwriting duo of Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton last week at The Monkey House when they were joined by Julia Austin and Ann Mindell when they played as Envy. Let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean and Matt’s last album.

1.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone
2.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
3.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.

I love the line about what you throw away, to me, is solid gold. That sums up many of the similarities and differences between us all. Nice London Calling reference too. Great couple of songs from Chin. I love that Telephone song. OK, let’s play the next song on the Giant Places album.

4.) The Words Will Show – Lendway
5.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa
6.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

The Breaks played as Sabbath last night at Nectar’s. Barbacoa opened for Envy last week and played the instrumental surf version of Bloodboy. Envy played it properly when they opened their set. Nice instrumental from Lendway. OK, let’s play some rock and roll with some words.

7.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
8.) The Blackout – The Static Age
9.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
10.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers

I’ve always thought that was one of the great songs played in Burlington. The Snaz are coming to town for a show at Radio Bean tomorrow and one at The Monkey House on Saturday. I love that song by Static. When I saw them so many years ago it was the first time I saw Bobby Hackney Jr. play drums. He just played with Barbacoa last week at the Envy show and was totally amazing. Great song by Zola. Many years ago The Cush came to Burlington and enchanted us for a few years. They are just about to begin a European tour so let’s celebrate with some of their wonderful music.

11.) Hollow – The Cush
12.) Roll Me – The Cush
13.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush

I hope they have a great tour!! One of the cool things about the Envy show last week was catching up with old friends like this guy.

15.) Decide – David Jarvis
16.) Comin’ Home – The Hippnotix
17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Villanelles were just as great a week ago Wednesday as they were the previous three. That night Grand opened for them and were pretty amazing too. Hipp Notix are from New York and, if I’m not mistaken, are from Dave’s neck of the woods. So, this is the week that the Seven Days Daisy awards came out. Daniel Bolles also awarded some special not quite awards called Dandelions. He rightly awarded Villanelles for best rock band and somehow me for local music champion, though fellow nominees such as Luke Awtry, James Lockridge, and Girls Rock Vermont deserved it as much or more. Thanks Dan and 7 Days. Oh, and this next singer and band rightly swept the local popular Daisy votes in a few categories.

19.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
20.) Bad Oasis – farm
21.) Star – The New Siberians

That is such a great song. I love that Farm song. OK, this next singer is 17 years old but is on her way to become a star.

22.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
23.) Bury Me – Forest Gray
24.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
25.) Time to Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

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

Quote of the Day   Leave a comment

From the April 8, 2013, edition of “Viewpoint.”

John Fugelsang:
Margaret Thatcher has died and the media’s been filled with a lot of extreme comments. Now, many progressives said some genuinely mean, nasty things about Mrs. Thatcher today. I don’t think it’s necessary to do that when all one really needs to do is just list off a few of her policies.

You see, I wanted to find a way to appropriately honor Mrs. Thatcher’s policies today, so I called Nelson Mandela a terrorist.
Then I busted some unions, I took milk away from poor children, I supported the regimes of Saddam Hussein and Augusto Pinochet, I cut taxes for the rich and widened the poverty gap, I sold off England’s basic utilities so people could pay a whole lot more for electricity and water in the U.K., then I insulted working people by saying any man who travels by bus is a failure — all this whilst urinating on miners and setting up a disastrous economy that the people of the U.K. are paying for with austerity today.
Oh, and I supported apartheid and called Mandela a terrorist — I mentioned that, right?

Now you see, that’s kind of mean, but it’s the truth, and you’re not supposed to say hateful things about a world leader on the day they die. And I know this ‘cause I heard it from all my Republican friends who said hateful things about Hugo Chavez on the day he died.

But I happen to think it’s possible to mentally walk and chew gum at the same time. One can appreciate Mrs. Thatcher’s amazing drive and historic success in becoming the first female prime minister of the U.K., while also acknowledging her policies hurt millions and millions and millions of people.

But in the interest of fairness, I wanted to list some of Mrs. Thatcher’s positives:
As a young member of parliament, she did vote to decriminalize homosexuality, she fought for gun control — England has very few handgun murders now — she warned of the dangers of climate change, she refused to meet with Sarah Palin, and allowed Meryl Streep to finally get that third Oscar.

And as a kid of the 80s, I do have to credit Mrs. Thatcher with being the single greatest muse of U.K. protest rock. Mrs. Thatcher’s policies may have been bad for Great Britain, but my friends, this lady inspired more great rock songs than Pattie Boyd Harrison Clapton did.

Elvis Costello documented the ruinous effects of her policies in “Tramp the Dirt Down” and “Shipbuilding,” a song that memorialized an industry Mrs. Thatcher helped drive out of the U.K.

Roger Waters immortalized her on the last real Pink Floyd album, “The Final Cut,” asking “Maggie, what have we done?” in the song “The Post War Dream.”

Morrissey’s first solo album featured the song “Margaret on the Guillotine,” which one can safely guess was not a positive homage.

The English Beat gave us “Stand Down Margaret,” Billy Bragg pretty much has a whole career thanks to Mrs. Thatcher’s economic policies, and don’t forget Sinead O’Connor’s “Black Boys on Mopeds” from 1990.

There’s also the very real possibility that if it weren’t for Mrs. Thatcher’s inspiration, The Clash might have wound up just being the hardest rocking U.K. bubblegum pop band of the 80s.

So we thank Mrs. Thatcher for influencing so many great artists to write protest songs against Mrs. Thatcher.

And to her most ardent fans, all I can say is the belief that Margaret Thatcher’s policies were good for people is kind of like Heidi Montag’s body — it might feel good, but it ain’t necessarily real.

And if you were watching the worshipful coverage of Mrs. Thatcher on Fox News, you might still not know she was finally forced out of power by her own party after the riots caused by her instituting a poll tax. I’m here to help.

Mrs. Thatcher suffered tremendously over the final years of her life. We wish Mrs. Thatcher eternal peace; we wish her defenders temporary historical awareness.
