intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. As a music fan I’m happy to leave myself in the capable hands of the many great musicians out there. I almost never want to offer advice, except for this. Please, record your music and release your records.

1.) Release Your Records – SWALE
2.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
3.) Souvenir – The Depth and the Whisper
4.) The River – Kat Wright

That’s the next wonderful song on By My Side, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song.. Whisper played a lovely show at Radio Bean last Sunday. Classic from Chin and great brand new song from Swale! OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and music by Clever Girls.

5.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
6.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
7.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls
8.) 45 – Clever Girls

Thanks to Ryan Cohen for recording us and to the band for playing such great versions of those songs and for hanging out and chatting with me. OK, these next two bands will be at The Monkey House on Saturday and I will be out of town on a trip with my mother and brother. Can everyone go in my place?

9.) Time To Save The World – Carraway
10.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
11.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
12.) The Bad Year – Carraway

That’s going to be a great show with those too bands. OK, last Sunday before The Depth And The Whisper I caught one song from the opening band. The bass player for the band performed earlier as a solo act and gave me a CD to check out. It’s pretty cool. Here’s a song.

13.) Clarity – Hello Tortoise
14.) Totally Submerged – Totally Submerged
15.) Hole In The Sky – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
16.) Laughing Jim – The Edd

The Edd have a new album that was released at 4:20 today. Surf played a great version of that last Friday at Foam Brewers. I finally caught up with Submerged at Radio Bean on Monday and they rocked. Cool song from Tortoise. So hey, is it a holiday today?

17.) Grandma Betty’s Goodtime Smokin’ Weed – Brother Zag
18.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians

22.) Poem for Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time and will go as follows.

Song before: Morrigan – Children in Paradise

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve got lots of great new music to play tonight but let’s begin with one of Vermont’s absolute treasures.

1.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
2.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Wooden Heart – SWALE
4.) All Love – Kat Wright

That’s the next song from Kat’s album By My Side that I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. That’s a brand new song from Swale from their upcoming album There’s No One Here. Wow, what a beautiful song, and what about those horns? The Jeremy song was from the interview and recording we did a few weeks back at Robot Dog Studio. Great song by Aaron, who is a great guy, a great singer, a great songwriter and a fantastic guitar player. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful person in our community. Speaking of wonderful people in our community, this next band have been playing around for a while but don’t have anything recorded. We met up last night with Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio and recorded this interview and they played these four songs.

5.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
6.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
7.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
8.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids

I love the songs and the over the top guitar playing and can’t thank Ryan and the Druids enough for playing that. Also, I brought my brother Ken along and he had a great time watching it all happen. OK, let’s play some more rock and roll.

9.) East Jabib – REDadmiral
10.) Ain’t No Sunshine – Kiki’s Lost Nation
11.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
12.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

Great new song from Clever. I love the huge sound of cascade. Kiki come out now and then to rock us hard, and it was cool to see Andriana play that song the other night. Great political rocker from Admiral. OK, let’s keep rocking.

13.) Give Love – 1881
14.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
15.) Sorrow Of The Space Inside – Secret Heliotropes
16.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale

That song is so quiet and so loud and so gentle and so powerful and always blows me away when then play it live. I’m so happy I finally get to play it for you. That’s another cool song from Heliotropes album A Well Lit Room. Great song from Milton and same for 1881. OK, let’s keep rocking.

17.) Journals – Senders
18.) This Ain’t The Summer Of Love – The Contrarian
19.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
20.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

I was listening to Pigs the other day and the imagery of burn and summer of love made me want to play those three together. Great song from Senders. OK, It’s my job to play local music but I just have to cheat now and then. There’s this french prog rock band called Children In Paradise who have been captivating me lately. The singer is about to release her solo album and is starting a crowdfunding campaign on April 1st. Since I play her music before and after my show all the time I thought I’d toss in one of her new songs.

21.) Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
22.) Be Like Ryan – The Mountain Says No
23.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
24.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

David sometimes lives in Vermont and sometimes lives in France so I thought that would be a fun way to bookend that set. Great song from Elephants. It sounds like they have new cool music coming for us soon. If you are near Jeffersonfille on Saturday, go check out Mountain!! Also, feel free to be like Ryan. Great song from Kat. Bonne Chance. OK let’s keep rocking.

25.) Jackbooted Thugs (Get All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
26.) Vicarious – Alice Austin
27.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
28.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn

Another great song from Aaron. Sean Toohey sings and plays guitar for The Nancy Druids and played in Telephone and played with Alice on that song. He and Ann Mindell used to play in Envy. Great song from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight is the 200th show that I’ve done on WBKM and it’s been a joy bringing you some of Burlington’s best music over the past 4 years. Tonight, I will pull out a whole bunch of classic songs.

1.) Star – The New Siberians
2.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
3.) Black Sheep – Kelly Ravin
4.) Green Doors – Lowell Thompson Music and Crown Pilot

Lowell and Kelly play in a band called The Welterweights and they play at Higher Ground on Saturday. Thanks for sponsoring our station Higher Ground! Andriana is amazing and I loved seeing her play that song last Friday. Hmmm, Siberians. OK, it’s time to play the next song on By My Side.

5.) Way With Words – Kat Wright
6.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget
7.) Unspoken – Anders Parker
8.) When She Sleeps – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Great gentle and powerful song from Peg. Anders is just amazing. Bridget are playing some enchanting shows these days. Yet another great song from Kat. This next band released this song last year and it quickly became a favorite. They are playing at The Monkey House on Saturday.

9.) The Bad Year – Carraway
10.) Paper Train – Dave Jarvis Band (Daffy Mal Yinkleyank)
11.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
12.) Popular Crowd – SWALE

Swale are playing great shows and are about to drop a new album on us. They have a Kickstarter going if you want to help out. Zola and Dave put on great shows in the ’90’s and Dave is now in Agent 802. Great song from Carraway. This band played around in the early 2010’s.

13.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
14.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
15.) Sun In The Sky – Ninja Custodian

17.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
18.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
19.) Bloodboy – Envy

Francis are a tremendous band and have a new album coming soon. Envy played great shows in the ’90’s and one last year. Doll Fight rocked us in the 2000’s and Rabbit are rocking us now. This next song is one of the most intense songs that got played in town many times over the years.

21.) The Drone – The Cush
22.) Release The Beast – The Mountain Says No
23.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian

25.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath
26.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was in the 70’s over the weekend and today it’s cold and snowy. Welcome to Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a lovely singer songwriter who graces our state.

I’ve seen him a dozen times (or so) at Metronome over the years, though not for a long time. The first time I saw him play was back at Hunts with his band The Bears.

Some of them are hanging in The Mule Bar in Winooski and they are doing a show opening tonight. Luke Awtry Photography has been done a great job documenting the local scene in pictures.

Song before: Joan Crawford – Blue Oyster Cult

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been another cold and warm and clear and snowy week in Vermont. That does not stop us from doing what we do.

1.) Driving All Alone – Danny LeFrancois
2.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
3.) Silence Kills – Secret Heliotropes
4.) I’ll get Wise – Anachronist

Great song from the central Vermont band. I’d seen Heliotropes listed on show bills but have never seen them. That may have to change. Great songs by David and Danny. OK, last week I finished the last song on Shovel Down so now I need to play a new album, song after song, week after week until it’s done. Let’s begin with the title song from the new album by Kat Wright Official

5.) By My Side – Kat Wright
6.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music
7.) Secret – Madaila

9.) Unveiled – Pours
10.) Strings – Binger
11.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
12.) The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian

Casey Merlin Rae used to sing in bands and write about music in town and was just back a couple of weeks ago to sing for the Rocketsled reunion. He was good friends with Sandy Pearlman and just put out an album of Blue Oyster Cult covers. That was one of them. Great new song from Mountain from the upcoming Golden Landfill album. Great songs from Binger and Pours. Since I just played a cover song, I think I will continue for the next set.

13.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
14.) Breathe – Ninja Custodian
15.) Is It My Body? – Peg Tassey MUSIC
16.) ETI (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) – The Contrarian

17.) Spit N’ Fluff – The Snaz
18.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
19.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
20.) This Ain’t The Summer Of Love – The Contrarian.

21.) Epic – Laureate

26.) Who Do You Love? – The Red Newts
27.) Angela Carter – Cricket Blue

Back in the early ’80’s Wire Train came and played Hunt’s a few times and I had a great time seeing them. That’s a great cover of the Dylan song. Cricket are just so amazing. I should have played an original Newts song but thought that was fun, and I’m playing covers anyway. They are at Sidebar tonight. Great song from Dave. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
