I just got back from my local music radio show, streaming online at our Facebook page, WBKM.ORG and over the airwaves at 107.1FM. I highlighted a couple of upcoming shows and played some rock and roll.

Song before: Dannemora – Seth Yacovone

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Last Friday I made it out to see The High Breaks at Juniper at Hotel Vermont. They have just released their debut album and I got a copy. It’s called Droppin’ Off With The High Breaks. Let’s begin with a couple of songs from it.

1.) Ankle Breaker – The High Breaks
2.) Wicked World – The High Breaks
3.) The Big One – The High Breaks

Great rockers from the band. When they played last Friday they tossed in a few of the Surf Sabbath songs, including Wicked, so I thought that would be fun to toss Wicked into the set. OK, let’s continue on with the next song on Bernie Sanders album.

4.) This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Artists
5.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
6.) Mon Ange – Francesca Blanchard
7.) Friends – Myra Flynn

Great song from Myra. Francesca has a ton of shows coming up soon. I’m still loving the Bern song and Bernie and his message. So, a week ago Wednesday I got to see The Nancy Druids at WRUV then I got to see them again last Monday at the Monkey House. They put on a great show. I don’t have any of their music but here is some from Sean’s previous bands.

8.) 1,000 Lies – Sean Toohey
9.) Sunday – Envy
10.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone

Sean did that song with Matt Hutton last year. Sunday is a classic rocker from the ’90’s. Great solo song from Sean in the ’90’s. Speaking of the ’90’s, one of the classic bands from that era, The Pants, just had a movie made about them. The movie will be shown at Higher Ground on Saturday and then a ton of local musicians will play some Pants songs and maybe a few other classics from the era. Here are a few songs from the Pants;

11.) Vermont – The Pants
12.) Cows – The Pants
13.) Overboard – The Pants
14.) High Water Mark – The Pants

There’s a pretty good chance you will hear all of those on Saturday. You may hear some of the next songs too.

15.) All My Life – Wide Wail
16.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
17.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
18.) Affection – Guppyboy

Chris Ziter & Jeff Baron from Guppyboy will be at the show. James will be at the show. Casey Rae will be at the show, and since Swale are the house band, Amanda from Wide Wail will be there. It’s going to be lots of fun. OK, up next I want to highlight a show that is happening on Friday at Club Metronome. It’s a benefit for the VNA Family Room and features Jamie Lee Thurston & The Starline Rhythm Boys.

19.) Best Damn Night – Jamie Lee Thurston
20.) Somebody Up There Loves Me – The Starline Rhythm Boys
21.) You Make Me See Stars – Lonestar Chain

Lonestar were Burette Douglas’ solo band and wrote a bunch of great songs, including that one. Stars always gets me going. Cool songs from Starline and Jamie. OK, let’s play some classic Burlington rock.

22.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
23.) Not True – Peg Tassey
24.) TFAY – Elephants Of Scotland
25.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis

Dave always wrote and played such fun songs. TFAY is such a great song. I just love Peg’s voice and energy and songs. Same goes for Zola. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Goodbye, Ta ta. See You, Sayonara.

26.Sayonara – Black Rabbit

outro

Songs After: Tumbledown – Fish
Empire Of The Clouds – Iron Maiden

I just got back from from doing my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Considering how I placed the songs tonight I likely should have used The Old And They Young by MIDLAKE BAND as the song before, but considering the past couple of days, I had to use Flood of Sunshine.

Song before: Flood Of Sunshine – The Posies

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a warm night and the last couple of days have felt like we just had spring for a few days, and now it feels like summer. This is Sarah Blacker on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
2.) All The Kids – The New Siberians
3.) Our Work Is Never Done – PossumHaw
4.) The North – Hana Zara

I love the reference to the painted buildings in Burlington’s Old North End in that song. Great song from PossumHaw! That’s a super brand new song from Siberians. I’ve got the windows open and it feels like a warm summer night. This next artist used to be mayor of Burlington and now he’s running for President.

5.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and thirty Vermont artists
6.) Destiny Waits – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds
7.) Sweet Angel – Robert Gagnon

Lovely song by Bob! Bud and Budd are such excellent guitar players. If you like the guitar, make sure you check them out sometime. Speaking of great guitar players you really should check out.

8.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn
9.) At The Diner – Zoot Wilson
10.) Evel Kinevel – Guppyboy
11.) Rocketsled’s Funky Main Man Meets Big Joe On Church Street – Phish & Richard Haupt.

Richard showed a lot of heart playing the clarinet on Church Street every day for years. It’s cool that Phish backed him up on that. Nice cover of the Chainsaws Of Babylon by Guppy. It almost had a Legend Of A Mind sweep to it. Killer song by Zoot. Aaron is playing at Radio Bean Tuesday at nine, if you want to check him out, and you really should if you can. So, speaking of Big Joe.

12.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band
13.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
14.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
15.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith

Yet another great song from Maryse’s new album The Way It Is. Kat and the band are just so good. It’s not quite sunflower time yet, but there are tons of flowers blooming around town. Here is another cool new song.

16.) The Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
17.) Double Dare Ya – Steph Pappas
18.) Somebody Up There Loves Me – The Starline Rhythm Boys
19.) 40 Days – Better Things

BT are playing lots of shows and writing lots of music and are really good. Rhythm Boys have been playing around for years and are still going strong. Steph’s been making music in our town for a long time too. Let’s continue on through Swale’s album The Next Instead.

20.) Popular Crowd – Swale
21.) That’s That Is Is – Ninja Custodian
22.) Bullet – REDadmiral
23.) Yours Sincerely – Persian Claws
24.) Be A Good Citizen (NYC Mix) – Pinhead

Classic song with lots of good advice. The Claws are always fun! I’ve got to put in the effort to catch Admiral sometime soon. Classic from Ninja. This next artist has played tons of great shows for years and is getting a lifetime achievement award at Nectar’s tomorrow. It is extremely well deserved.

25.) Nighttime Fades – Seth Yacovone Band
26.) Film Called Life – Jer Coons
27.) How It Goes – Blue Button
28.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

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

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It’s the day before Halloween so I played lots of scary songs and let Mr E. Ghoul speak about energy, spirits, mortality and what lies beyond.

Songs before:Please Mr Gravedigger – David Bowie (Official)
End Of the World – Gary Moore with Jack Bruce on bass and vocals

intro

Good evening, it is I, Mr E. Ghoul, here to play the substance that you quaintly call music for you this evening. The one you refer to as Tim has again this year lent me his body so that I may incarnate for two of your earthly hours. I have scary songs lined up to challenge your perceptions of what is in your reality and what is the reality beyond. Let’s begin with a ride on the crazy hearse. This is Barbacoa on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
2.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
3.) Demons – Waylon Speed
4.) Monsters – Cold Sweat
5.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit

That song was about the Black Cat Cafe, a place on Bank Street in Burlington, that burned in the 1970’s. People transferred from your mortal world to the spiritual one in the blast. Last week Tim played the last song on the Row EP from Anachronist. He will now play Lipstick and Dynamite all the way through, song by song, week after week, Black Cat was the first song. Nice tale of all the monsters in the world from the Syracuse band. Scary supernatural songs from Waylon and Crazyhearse. People died in the Black Cat fire but that is part of your mortal cycle. More cats will be born.

6.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
7.) Nosferatu – The Lestons
8.) Vampyre – David L. Jarvis

Scary song from Dave and a nice homage to one of the first times you learned dance energy and to move pictures and made something that can shift your emotions, to this day. I hope you weren’t too scared of the Kids tale of monsters in the closet. Let us now look west and take a trip through the graveyard.

9.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
10.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
11.) Death – Ccccome!
12.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

Such a scary tale of imminent doom from the mortal you call Milton. It is only your understanding of yourself as a part of your body that you fear the dogs and death. Despite the scary title, death is just the transformation from this realm to the next, and it contains beautiful irony in that the author is so full of life. That was a nice tale of digging into your subconscious through the power of myth by Anais. One night at Radio Bean Marco Benevento and Kat Wright put a spell on their audience. This is a recording of the event.

13.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band (just Kat but I left the name for the FB tag)
14.) Devil – farm
15.) Dragnet – Vedora
16.) Violence – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Ah yes, Halloween is a night to try on a new costumes and personas. Peg has donned the costume of Alice Cooper, as Violence is really Is It My Body. It’s funny because Alice Cooper is the costume of Vincent Furnier, and on it goes. Vedora speak well of the forces of attraction and forces are all that exist in the spiritual world. That was a frightening tale of Farm and the Devil, but it came out OK in the end. Up next is a song about masks and ghosts and blood.

17.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
18.) Masquerade For A Heartache – The Starline Rhythm Boys
19.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days
20.) Ghost – Phish
21.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things

Silly mortals, you cannot kill a ghost. Nice ghostly tales from Phish and Aaron Flinn. That energy transference that you call love is a powerful force. It sometimes requires a mask. Here is another band who play Burlington now and then, and they are wearing a mask.

22.) Children Of The Grave – JCHA
23.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
24.) Knight ov Swords – The Contrarian
25.) Ghostified – Persian Claws

It is time to return this mortal body to Tim. I hope you enjoyed my stories of your side and the other. Come back next week when Tim will continue to help you check out the music of this town, and perpetually do it again next week.

intro

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?
