Song before It Can Happen – Yes
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Next Wednesday at The Monkey House there will be another Show Up Show to raise money for a good cause. This band will be one of the ones who play.
1.) Wooden Heart – SWALE
2.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
3.) Crown Jewell – Wren Kitz
4.) Ghost – Kelly Ravin
Kelly and Lowell Thompson will play the show up show with their band the Welterweights. This show will benefit Black Lives Matter. Wren will also play a set, and so will Swale. I tossed in the Crow song since it’s so beautiful. OK, here is the next song on By My Side.
5.) Who’s Your Fool? – Kat Wright
6.) Realization – Madaila
7.) Waiting For The World To End – The Depth and the Whisper
8.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

10.) Anytime (R & B) – jane siberry
11.) In The Garden Of Mystic Lovers – Francis Dunnery
12.) Break – Slingshot Dakota
Slingshot are from PA but stop by and play on a regular basis. Francis is from Scotland but lived in VT for a while and played a series of great shows at Club Metronome around the time he released the Man album. I saw Jane at Hunt’s twice many years ago, at Memorial once with the Indigo Girls, and once at Higher Ground several years ago. Thanks for sponsoring our station HG! Someone should bring Jane back, she is so much fun live. Hmmmm, Sarah. OK, this next band just released an EP called Drive By Fruiting.
13.) Once More, With Apathy – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) Harder – apb
15.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
16.) I Choo-Choo-Choose You – Mr Doubtfire.
I had fun seeing those three bands at Jim’s basement last Saturday. Another band called Ransom Smith played also, but I could not find any of their music, so I had to play a second Doubtfire song. It’s new too. There is a long history of punk rock in Burlington and it’s nice to know it’s still happening. For the next song, let’s go back to the beginning.
17.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
18.) No More Sex – Pinhead
19.) Oklahoma Road Rage – Crazyhearse
20.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit
Rabbit and Crazyhearse could come out and play those songs at any time. Wards and Pinhead rocked us ’80’s style. Speaking of the ’80’s, I’d like to welcome Annmarie back to the WBKM airwaves for a show of ’80’s music that runs from 8-9 on Thursdays before my show. OK, this next band will rock Foam Brewers on Friday.
21.) Sea Chopper – The High Breaks
22.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
23.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail

10.) Better Off – Haley Jane and the Primates

13.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler
14.) East Jabip – REDadmiral

17.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards

22.) Kill Your Idols – Slush
23.) Blood Boy – Barbacoa
24.) Sunday – Envy
Those are all classics too. Barbacoa will play with Swale tomorrow at ArtsRiot for a live recording, so that is one of the many can’t miss shows tomorrow, and Saturday is just as packed. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
27.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians
Great new Siberians song. FTC rocked the early 2000’s and Casey used to sing in a few local bands. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

A Certain Slant Of Light – The Tea Party
Wavelength – The Bears
New Americana – Halsey
Highway Brain – The Cush
Song before: Safe European Home – The Clash
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. One of the legendary Burlington musicians from the ’90’s released a new ep this week. She is celebrating with a release party tonight in California. This is the title song.
1.) Cowboy Summer – Alice Austin
2.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Snow In The Controls – Dom The Barber
4.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker
Great song from Milton. I’ve been waiting until it was snowy out to play the Dommer Barber song. It isn’t really snowy out, but is in late January. I have played the Jeremy song before but that was a demo and this is the brand new studio version. Great stuff from Alice, as always. This next band played a fantastic version of this song last week at Signal Kitchen.
5.) Golden Crutch – Swale
6.) Son, You Are No Island – Torres
7.) Year Of The Snake – Tyler Daniel Bean
8.) Jack Sharp – Swale
Swale played a rocking version of that one too. Tyler played that song solo acoustic, but it had a lot of fire, and the version I just played is the full band version. Pretty cool song. Island was the song that stood out the most at the Torres show, though I really liked it all. I love the slow build and heavy surge at the end. I though it would be fun to bookend that set with Swale. OK, here is the next song on Red Flannel Hash
9.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
10.) Throw Me Away – Spill
11.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
12.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
Classic rocker from Ninja. FTC rocked us for a few years in the early 2000’s and put on some pretty intense shows. Spill are another great ’90’s band and that song always grabbed me. I just love that Rabbit song!! There is a cool show happening tomorrow at Twofourtwo Main with these next three bands.
13.) Last Song – Carraway
14.) No Way – Phantom Suns
15.) Nothing Important – Doom Service
Doom have a new album called Live At Mount Doom, so I got that one from that album. Great songs from Phantom and Carraway. I really have to make it to 242 Main tomorrow. OK, let’s keep rocking.
16.) Ladders – Heavy Plains
17.) Great Scott – Wave Of The Future
18.) Too Drunk – The Dirty Blondes
19.) Hello World – Screaming Skull
20.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
Killer song from the late ’80’s early ’90’s band. That Skull song is so cool. It’s a short intro followed by a shorter burst of intense rock. I just heard that the Blondes are playing at the Bowie tribute thing at Higher Ground tonight and I’m bummed I missed them. That is such a fun song from Wave. Great rocker from Plains. OK, let’s keep rocking.
21.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
22.) Not True – Peg Tassey
23.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers
24.) Plastic Revolution
I keep singing that song “Revolution, Bern style now.” Great rocker from Gabby. Great rocker from Peg. Earthquakes had me bouncing around the studio, but of course, the other songs had me doing that too. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
27.) Weapons Factory – The Wards with the Dirty Blondes
28.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian
I love that song from Casey Merlin Rae. Classic from the ’80’s punk band. That was a re-recorded version with a bit of help from Diane Sullivan on vocals. Great song from Beano’s solo band. Hmmm, Farm. I liked the Torres show so much, I want to toss in another song. This is the title song from the new album.

1.) Megaphone – Joshua Glass Music
2.) One From Two – Linda Bassick
3.) 1.21 Jigawatts – Wave of the Future
Last Saturday was the Girls Rock Vermont showcase at Higher Ground. I missed the show but love the energy that gets put into helping girls learn to form bands and learn about the music business. People like Samara Lark Brown, who sings with Wave, and Linda Bassick are among the many people who make it happen every year. Josh’s daughter was one of the performers. Also, I caught a couple of songs by Linda and her other band, Steady Betty, yesterday. They sounded great at the packed restaurant on the water. OK, this next set is just for fun. It’s dedicated to all of the working people out there.
4.) I Got A Job – Maryse Smith
5.) I Need A Raise – Cave Bees
6.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
7.) I Quit – Blotto
Wow, that flowed nicely. Circle of the job life. OMG it’s so hot out. It’s been ’90’s for the last four days. Let’s go to the beach.
8.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
9.) Unveiled – Pours
10.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox (Dom Jerichovox)
Yesterday I stopped at Breakwaters for one beer with Steady Betty, went and saw Noodle and No Son Of Mine (metal bands) at Twofourtwo Main, then went over to Radio Bean and caught a lovely set by Jericho. That Pours song sounds so liquid it feels like you are in the water. OK, let’s play the next song from JV, the brilliant album from The Mountain Says No.
11.) Hard Times White Winds – The Mountain Says No
12.) Sober – Vedora
13.) Into The Light – Great Western
Western played a pretty smoking show at Manhattan Pizza and Pub last Saturday. Any chance that song they closed with will be recorded in time for my Halloween show later this year? After Western’s set, this next band followed with a killer show of their own.
14.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
15.) Sexy Flowers – Peg Tassey MUSIC
16.) L.S. Dee – Dee Claw and Al Hotchkiss

Hmm, interesting mixture. All three are local legends. This next band should be one soon.
20.) Calypskango – Binger
21.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
22.) WalkingInCircles – Raq
That song just wants to make me bounce around and smile. Killer super cool song from Kat and the band. She sounded great singing with Steady Betty yesterday.

23.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
24.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
25.) Green Peaks Dark Valleys – Get A Grip

Songs after: So Fellini – Fish

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It had a swing at the beginning then rocked through the end.
Song before: Distant Early Warning – Rush
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Life in Burlington has seen a ton of rain and lots of sunny beautiful days, or parts of days. This is a song from the early 2000’s from a band from Rutland. This song has been playing in my head a lot lately, so now I’m going to play it for you. This is If I Go by Will on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.
1.) If I Go – Will
2.) Waiting For You – Swale
3.) Think I’ll Go – Great Western
4.) Precious Time – The Cush
The Cush built their first album in Texas then moved to Vermont for a few years. I saw as many shows as I could and that is such a great song. Killer song from Western. Hopefully, they have new stuff coming soon. That’s such a fun Swale song and sounded as good coming out of the Will song as I hoped. This next singer is playing this weekend in Hinesburgh at the Northern Sun Music Festival with a bass player and drummer. I bet it will rock.
5.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
6.) Einstein-Rosen Bridge – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) The Whole – Milton Busker
8.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
Maryse Smith is playing at Signal Kitchen tomorrow. What a great song. I have not caught up with Milton in a while, but hope to soon. Cool lyrics that make you think from Jeremy.

9.) The Territory – Hana Zara
10.) Let It Shine – Rachel Brown
11.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
12.) In The Rain – Plan B
It’s been raining like crazy lately and was supposed to rain today. No sign of it yet, it’s really been a beautiful day. I’ve always loved that Dave song. Rachel used to unleash her killer voice in this town a lot. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. It will be released July 27 when they play The Monkey House.
13.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
14.) Bomb – Envy
15.) Original Original – Black Rabbit
16.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
Classic song from the band that lead the punk wave in Burlington back in the ’80’s. Killer new Rabbit song! Killer classic from Envy. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell who played in that band are in a new band called The Nancy Druids. Definitely check them out when they play Radio Bean a couple of Monday’s from now. Hmmm, Mountain. OK, let’s keep on playing some recent Burlington punk music.
17.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
18.) Black Oil – Doom Service
19.) Asphyxia – Better Things
20.) Blue Lights – As We Were
21.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
If you want a heavy rock band, you could not do better than Rough Francis. They are at Higher Ground tonight opening for Bad Religion. As play it fast and hard and fun and I’ve loved the couple of times I’ve seen them. Better keep writing music and playing shows and I cant’ wait to see where they go next. Doom always rock hard. I miss Poxy. This next artist used to play all the time in Burlington. She’s coming back for a visit. Will she play a show? I hope so.
22.) Vicarious – Alice Austin
22.) Sequoia II – Binger
23.) These Are Some Things – When Particles Collide
24.) Stop – REDadmirial
I’ve got to get out and see admiral. They are playing the Northern Sun Music Festival too, but I have to work on Saturday and Sunday I’m meeting Mom and Dad and Ken for a Father’s Day lunch then heading to Montreal to see Rush with Ken. Killer song from Particles who are on the road now. Go check them out! Cool song form Binger. It’s almost the Solstice and the longest day of the year. It makes me feel like this song.
25.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
26.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim
27.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
28.) Relief – Death World Wide
Killer song from the bands new album N.E.W. Love that Vetica song. Killer song from Slowdim. I’d love someone to bring that Boston band to town. Sarah’s on the road. Check her out if she comes to your town! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the release of Misplaced Childhood, so the songs after were: Childhood’s End->White Feather (live) – Fish
After wrapping up the show, the rain came. It was a very wet walk home with shifting winds. The umbrella helped, but it was a very wet walk.
