Radio Show 111 Thursday May 21, 2015 9-11pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG   Leave a comment



I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org, and seeing Dino Bravo at Club Metronome, I played a bunch of really new music and a few very old songs.

Song before: When I Was New – Sarah Blacker



From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a beautiful night in Burlington I went 20 days without seeing any live music, due to an odd series of unfortunate circumstances, but finally made it out to Radio Bean last Monday to see The Nancy Druids. They are very new so I don’t have any of their music, but if you listen to the first two songs, you can get an idea. This is Today Is Tomorrow by The Red Telephone on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.)Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
2.) Still Life Scene – Envy
3.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
4.) Original Original – Black Rabbit

Great new song from Rabbit! They got the mighty Jane Boxall Percussion to play drums on their new album and recorded 11 songs. It will be called Red Flannel Hash and should come out on June 23rd. I’m so psyched, though I”m quite sad that Jane has left for Nashville. Come back any time!! We’ll miss you. Killer new song from Mountain. I can’t wait until they release their album! Did I mention that I loved the Nancy Druids and can’t wait to get to know their songs!. OK, let’s keep rocking through the Swale album The Next Instead.

5.) Jack Sharp – Swale
6.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
7.) Fades To Grey – Aram Bedrosian
8.) Breakout – Sarah Blacker

Killer new song from Sarah’s album In Waves which came out Monday or Tuesday or so. She will be at the Skinny Pancake tomorrow at 7. I work until 7 but will head down as quick as I can to see how much I can see. There are some really nice songs on her new album and she sings the heck out of them! Killer new all bass only song from Aram. Love the Phil song. So, I think I want to head to the Pancake tomorrow to see Sarah then will head back to the Bean to see Rough Francis! How cool is that.

10.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
11.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
12.) Where Is My Mind? – The Pixies

The Pixies are in town tonight at The Flynn Theatre. I think almost everyone I know is going, but I’m here to do this show for you. Plains are on the top of my list of bands I have not seen that I really need to check out! The played Saturday with Vedora, but it was one of those bad timing missing shows things. Soon. Dino are playing at Metronome around 10:30 so I may head over after this show. OK, I’m going to play some classic old school Burlington music, but to take us there, this is the Vacant Lots.

14.) Amazon – Kilimanjaro
15.) South Wind – Gordon Stone
16.) Hot Water – Pine Island

Since Pine Island are named in my intro it’s about time I played them. Nice song from Gordon. I remember seeing Kilimanjaro a long time ago and loving how smooth and elegant that they always were. I saw this guy recently when he opened for April Wine a couple of times at Higher Ground.

17.) Axe To Grind – Nobby Reed
18.) Another Round – The Eames Brothers
19.) Gothic Bloodsucker – Zola Turn
20.) Giant Mosquitoes – Cold Sweat

Sweat used to play Texas, which became Club Toast, KD Churchills, and others. I think it’s the Zen Lounge now and I think they do music again. It’s the beginning of mosquito season so I had to play the sweat song and the Zola song. Killer stuff by Nobby and Eames. Here’s another song from Sarah’s new album

21.) This Melody – Sarah Blacker
22.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
23.) The Cure (live) – Thompson Gunner
24.) Decide – David L. Jarvis

It was great to run into Dave at the Druids show. Thanks for the painting! Killer song from the Rutland band. Abbie will be at Nectar’s on Saturday. Hmmm, Sarah. This band just played a show that I missed on Saturday and will have a new album of songs, with Jane Boxall drumming, soon. Sob, we’ll miss you Jane!

25.) Low Down M2 – Vedora
26.) Deadly Wires – Ryan Ober
27.) Wisps and Watercolors – Sarah Blacker
28.) Extended Werewolf – farm

There’s only so much time indeed/ Yet another killer new Sarah song. Ryan is at Nectar’s on Saturday too. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?



Song after: 13th Star – Fish


Radio Show 82 Thursday October 9, 2014 9-11pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG   Leave a comment




I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It had a wet and cool feel to it.

Song before: Life On Mars? – David Bowie (Official)



From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cool evening in Burlington and we just had a strong rainstorm come in from the west. I went to Montreal on Monday with my brother Ken to see Judas Priest, and when I got home, the new album by The Red Telephone was waiting for me. This is Under The Northern Sky by The Red Telephone on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Under The Northern Sky – The Red Telephone
2.) Waiting For You – Swale
3.) Say Something – Silent Mind
4.) The Mime – Joe Adler

Great song from Joe’s new album. I just got Say Something and really like it. I will have to check them out more. Great song from Swale. Here is the next song from Anachronist‘s Row EP.

5.) Say It – Anachronist
6.) Tumbling Down – Raq
7.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn

Great song by Aaron. I thought it would fit the mood of the evening. The Raq song had me rocking. Up next is a classic Burlington band that I have not played. It’s time to change that!!

8.) West Wind – The Eames Brothers Band
9.) Masquerade For Heartache – The Starline Rhythm Boys
10.) Flood Victim – Zoot Wilson

Zoot is a legend in this town. Eames And Starline have been playing around for a long time and play a lot now. I’m happy to finally get them on my show. Wednesday night I went to Radio Bean to see Hana Zara. She opened with this one.

11.) Afterlife – Hana Zara
12.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag
13.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin
14.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker

I just love that Milton song. Great newish song from Alice. Brother Zag, Burlington’s most unknown performer, though kind of known otherwise. I love the lyrics that Hana sings. Let’s kick up the pace a bit.

15.) Spy-Fi – Barbacoa
16.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
17.) Any Day Now – The Dig
18.) The Last Thing – The Dig

Those two were from 2006, but they are playing Signal Kitchen tomorrow, so I wanted to play something by them. Great songs from Barbacoa and Persian. This next band have played around so much, they are honorary Vermonters. They will play the Flynn Theater in January.

19.) New Orleans Is Sinking – The Tragically Hip
20.) The River – The Tea Party (Official)

The Tea Party used to play town all the time. They just released a new album and are playing at Metropolis in Montreal in November. That was a song from their first album that was recorded at White Crow Audio in Burlington. It would be great if someone brought them back to town. This next band are coming back to town on November 7th at Arts Riot. I don’t have anything new to play, so here is a song from the last album.

21.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
22.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone

Another new song from Places You Return, the new album by The Red Telephone. I haven’t played any Binger yet tonight.

23.) Buttonz – Binger
24.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
25.) Last Night In Amsterdam – The Red Telephone

That was the last song from Places You Return. I’m so psyched to get to know the album. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?



song after: Scattering Crows – Fish


Radio Bean Birthday Party part 3, November 2, 2013   Leave a comment

With a full work day, and a good night’s sleep behind me, it’s time to finish the story of the Radio Bean birthday party. When I left off, The Honky Tonk band had just exited the stage…

A new band called Dripline came on next. With Eric Segalstad on guitar, and the rest of the band consisting of bass, drums, and keys, they opened with a piano intro and Aya Inoue singing some soaring vocals. All three songs found a nice dance groove, then got a bit liquid trancey and became really fun. The first one was really good, but sadly was the only one with Aya. The second two started out OK, but each had a switch where it just suddenly got really good. I think they have a bit of work to do, but they might really have something there!

Vedora came on next and just killed it. It’s weird for me to not know their songs, having seen them so many times, but I really like all of the third generation songs. They played a great trio of powerful, yet melodic songs. Every moment was fantastic and I was in heaven. They were set to wrap it up, but were told they could play another. They went back to the second generation of their songs, and played a killer Sober. I live for sets like this.

Nest up the room was cleared a bit to make way for Brass Balagan. Many people, in red jumpsuits, playing many instruments (most brass but not all of them), made a joyful presence and lovely sound. At one point they decided that since it was the Bean’s 13th birthday, that it had become a man. They put Lee Anderson in a chair and crowd surfed him to the front, while playing Havah Nagilah. They presented him with a yamaka, and mazel tov, our coffee house is all grown up.

Up next a prognosticator brought predictions for the coming year. Unfortunately the room was loud and I missed most of what he said.

The Eames Brothers were supposed to go on next, but were running late. A pick up band with Brett Hughes on drums, Eric Segalstad on guitar, and Matthew Hastings on bass jammed out a long blues rock instrumental. I think Lee Anderson and Joe Adler had a turn on vocals at times. It was pretty fun, and did a good job filling the space. A guy who played as a human beat box followed for a couple of songs. The drummer for Dripline joined in on the second song, and gave it an edge. It was fun, but i was starting to crave the real stuff.

After the long delay, The Eames Brothers finally made it. They set up quick and jammed out three blues rock songs. Their singing and playing were great and they were really fun.

Swale came on next, but were sadly missing drummer Jeremy Frederick. Eric Olsen played some sweet guitar, and Amanda played keys and sang Lou Reed‘s Perfect Day. It was just gorgeous, and my heart was filled with joy. For the next song, Frank sat in on drums, James Belizia joined on guitar, Rebekah Whitehurst grabbed the bass, and Lee Anderson played harmonica. They locked into an epic jam of Sister Ray and let it play for a few hours, or so. Eric had a great feel for the vocals, and jammed hard on guitar. Amanda played keys for a while, got up and played tambourine for a while and then played some more keys. It was nothing but bliss. Really, really, really long bliss.

The energy stayed super high as Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger hit the stage. With several girls to help out, they opened with a fun Many A Girl. They followed with a blistering version of the Mime that rocked hard. Eric Segalstad and Bob Wagner traded lead guitar licks and the band were spot on. At one point Joe wandered into the crowd still playing the card deck guitar. Eric followed and they looked like they were having the time of their lives as the band kept the groove tight. They finally wandered back to the stage and wrapped up the song. Up next was Many A Girl reprise and they caught a great groove and had many of us singing Back of a sail, back of a sail, tomorrow’s on the back of a sail, over and over, until the intensity was so great that it knocked Joe and Eric to the ground, as the band jammed out the finish. I just love rock and roll!

The energy stayed at peak intensity as Blue Button took the stage. Their raw punk rock really got the crowd going. They opened with the Nerve, and it was sting breakingly intense. Eric needed another guitar, and Brett Hughes lent him his. It was funny to watch a punk band with a guitar that looks like it belongs in a honky tonk band, but it mattered not, Eric made it scream with rock. They played a couple of songs that I did not know, the closer may have been Jupiter. They played a killer version of Fucking Burning Bridges. Only a couple of people in the crowd wanted to mosh, so while it was not quite the usual pit, the audience swirled around like a mass of moving flesh. They rocked us hard and we loved them for it.

After that, I was done. I wanted to stay for cake at midnight, and it was only 10-15 minutes away, but after a 7 hours stretch of music, I had nothing left.

I slipped out the Dino Duende door, into the cool night air. A mix of exhaustion and bliss carried me through the short walk home
Thanks for the usual awesome party Radio Bean!! Let’s do it again next year, shall we?
