Song before: The End Of The World – Skeeter Davis
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

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

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

Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s. Same for Ninja. I want to send Sun to anyone going through a rough time. It’s always been a source of strength for me. Doubtfire are out playing great shows and have a new EP coming soon. Hmmm, Claws. OK, here is another of my favorite songs.
17.) Alienation – Black Rabbit

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

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

5.) Feelin’ Strong – Kat Wright
6.) Spring – Madaila
7.) Summer Falls – Lendway
8.) Paperclip Chains – Let’s Whisper
I love Whisper’s songs. I think they are making a new album.

9.) Smile – Dwight & Nicole

14.) ETI (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) – The Contrarian

19.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
Cool song from Elephants. Per John M Whyte they have a new album coming and a really cool sound. I can’t wait. CC were a classic ’90’s band. I love the Floyd feel of Edd. OK, this next artist just released this EP last week and it’s getting a lot of notice.

Song before: Something On – The Tragically Hip
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a great week of music and this coming week looks pretty good too. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us. Let’s begin with a band who played last Saturday at Hotel Vermont and last night at The Daily Planet.
1.) Love Me Tender – Silver Bridget
2.) Wishing Away – Satori Bob
3.) One By Sea – Elephants of Scotland
4.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

5.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) The Road – Anders Parker
7.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western
8.) The Next Instead – SWALE
Since I was playing epic songs in that set, Instead just had to be there. It’s been a while since I’ve seen Western so hopefully they will play around again soon. I’m still reeling from that show Anders put on a few weeks ago at ArtsRiot. I just love that song from Seth. This next singer is playing Saturday at Radio Bean
9.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
10.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
11.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
12.) Burning Down The House (live at Nectar’s) – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
Joe is playing the Radio Bean show Saturday too. Joe is joining up with Binger on Friday for a show at the Bean. Binger will be the Rangers Of Danger and at some point Joe will leave and it will become a Binger show. I think that will be pretty extraordinary. OK, this next band came to town last week for the first time in a long time. They played three epic sets at Manhattan Pizza and played all of these songs.
13.) Fight – When Particles Collide
14.) Constant Disaster – When Particles Collide
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
I had to skip an epic reunion show to see them but loved every moment of their show. OK, this next set of songs are ones that I just think will sound great together.
17.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
18.) Last Night – Carraway
19.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
20.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
I love the indie rock vibe on all of those songs. I hope you did too. OK, let’s go back to the ’90’s.
21.) These Days – Zola Turn
22.) Clear – Wide Wail
23.) Where Are You Tonight?/Get Into Your Sex – Peg Tassey MUSIC
24.) All Love – Kat Wright
I had to toss in the great new song from Kat to contrast the older classics. OK, let’s close with a couple of songs that were paired together on the first EP that I ever bought by this band who come to town on a semi-regular basis.
25.) Until The Day I Die – Slingshot Dakota

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking the wonderful Higher Ground for sponsoring our station.

1.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
2.) I know Right – The Mountain Says No
3.) Six Month Winter – Suburban Samurai
4.) Lion Tamer – Carraway
Now that the lions will soon be in charge we are all going to need to learn to become lion tamers, in a loving caring way. Great new song from Suburban. They played at The Monkey House last night. That’s a great new song from Mountain from their upcoming album Golden Landfill. That’s an early mix but sounds so cool. Great song from Grand. OK, let’s play the next song on Shovel Down, the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week.
5.) The Violent Strain Of My Broken Heart – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) The Mime – Joe Adler
7.) The Road – Anders Parker
8.) Machu Picchu – The Mountain Says No
Wow, they really had to climb the heights to create that one. Thanks Mountain! Anders played an amazing show at ArtsRiot last Friday. His version of that song was stunning. It’s pretty great on album too. Joe played at Radio Bean a week ago Monday and reminded me how great that song is. Great song from Seth. OK, with lots of fake news about and an incoming President who speaks in vague generalities and when he does cite facts, is usually wrong, it’s pretty scary and makes this song sound appropriate.
9.) Barbie’s Plastic Army – REDadmiral
10.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
11.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) Get Out Of Your Own Way – Kelly Ravin
Great song from Kelly’s new Bonneville album. He and his band the Welterweights opened for Anders last Friday. Doubtfire played at the Monkey last night. Rabbit nicely sing about the countdown to meltdown. Sadly appropriate song from Admiral. OK, here’s another Anders song. He wrote it about the W Bush years but is seems it will be appropriate again soon.
13.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
14.) You Say You’re Alive – The Mountain Says No
15.) Devil’s Right Hand – Swillbillie
16.) 8 Long Years – 1881
Great new song from 1881’s Action EP. Hopefully, it will be four. Swillbillie will play at Nectar’s on Saturday. Another stunning new Mountain song. What a great rocker from Anders. OK, let’s play another new Mountain song. I’ve been waiting a long time to be able to play this one.
17.) Glazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
18.) Waterlanding – SWALE
19.) American Proxy – The Hero Cycle
20.) The Possibility Shop – The Red Telephone
No matter what happens in the next few years, there will be tons of possibilities. Let’s consciously make decisions to try and make choices that are good for us and our communities at all times. Great song from Hero. Swale are playing with a ton of other local bands at The Monkey House tomorrow. Everyone is playing country songs so that should be fun. I love that Mountain song. OK, as we stand at the abyss of a new administration this song seems appropriate.
21.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
22.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
23.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
24.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
That is a great song about lashing out at an idea that seems to be coming back into power. Great song from Francis about standing up to racism. Sadly still appropriate song from Death. Breaks are playing at Foam Brewers tomorrow. This song is about fighting for the American Dream.
25.) American Dream – Doll Fight
26.) Upstream – The New Siberians
27.) Back Home – Eastern Mountain Time
28.) Babies To War – Milton Busker
Great song from Milton. Yes, let’s not send our babies to war anymore. He and his band The Grim Work played at Light Club Lamp Shop last weekend. Eastern are at the Monkey tomorrow.

Song before: Anytime – jane siberry
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have lots of cool shows happening this week. Well, election night has come and gone and many of us are worried about the results. It was nice to sit down and read so many comments on Facebook today. There are a lot of wonderful smart caring compassionate people in our community who can express positive hopes and dreams of working and being together even though we are worried and uncertain. Your staggering optimism buoys me. Let’s begin with a song about looking towards the positive things in life.
1.) The Light – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) If You Get Lost – SWALE
3.) Fades To Grey – Aram Bedrosian
4.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
That is such a huge and gorgeous song. I wanted to play it because we can all use a huge amount of beauty in our world. I want to send that out to my brother Ken. That’s a new song from the staggeringly talented Aram. I played Lost for the same reason I played Brothers. Such a great new song from Kat Wright featuring some fantastic guitar work from Bob Wagner. Here is the next song from Song For My Double.
5.) One On The Skyline – Invisible Homes
6.) Not I – Andriana Chobot
7.) Amazing Journey/Sparks (live at Leeds) – The Who
8.) See Me Feel Me/Listening To You – The Who
Lyric Theater is doing Tommy this weekend so I wanted to play a couple of the lovely Who songs. With Andriana and Marie Claire Johnson in the band, it’s going to be great. Cool song from Homes. Here is a song from when Marie sang and played rock guitar.
9.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons
10.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
11.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
Doom and Doubt are playing Saturday at The Monkey House where Doubt will release their new EP. Doubt are also playing tonight at Jim’s Basement with Grand. FTC were so great. I went out to Nectar’s to watch the election results Tuesday and saw all of these bands.
13.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
14.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
15.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
16.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes
Everyone played great sets and rocked hard at the show. Most of those songs were played. Last weekend was the Radio Bean birthday and I saw these bands and many more.
17.) Flight Of The Alligator – Cave Bees
18.) Waiting For You – Swale
19.) Lowdown – Vedora
20.) Old Man – Silver Bridget
Bridget sounded so sweet. Vedora did not play but Caroline Marie fronts them and her solo set sounded kind of like that. Swale and Bees played those songs. Speaking of Birthdays, tomorrow is our birthday at WBKM.ORG and we are throwing a party at Nectar’s. We will have The Joe Moore band, Castle Creek, and Seth Yacovone will play a set of Dylan songs with the band calling themselves The Jokerman. Since many local artists play this song, I think it’s appropriate to play.
21.) One More Cup Of Coffee (Valley Below) – Bob Dylan
22.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Seth Yacovne and friends calling themselves Real Old & Insane Doneky
That was from a previous WBKM birthday party. Seth always rocks so it’s going to be a good time. This next song has been on my mind lately.
23.) Last American Right – The Cush
24.) Last Night – Carraway
25.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
I’ve been listening to their new album Traces and loving that song. I’m pretty pleased with that new Carraway song too. Hmmm, the Cush. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Farewell.
26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
The Gathering – Fish
No Superman – TILT
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
Presence – Satori Bob
I Lost My Marbles – Joshua Glass Music
