Radio Show 31 Thursday October 3 , 2013 9-10pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG   2 comments



I just got back from tonight’s local music show on WBKM.ORG. I got in early and started playing tunes at 8:20, with the full show from 9-10ish.

Song Before: Southside – Anderson and Wakeman



From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’m sorry about missing last weeks show, but had a good time going to Albany to see The Waterboys Official. The leaves were turning and it was a beautiful day. Tonight we are going to start a bit to the south, in Middlebury. This is Girl In My Head by Jer Coons and this is Burlington’s kind of music on WBKM

1.) Girl In My Head – Jer Coons
2.) Even Cowgirls Get The Blues – The Mockingbirds
3.) Hey Ernie – Cold Sweat

Today is James Curley’s birthday, so I had to play some Sweat. I remember seeing them play at Texas so many times. We used to travel to see them in Glens Falls and Clifton Park, NY, so it was cool to drive by there on the way to see the Waterboys. Scott Fultz from Sweat went to the Egg a couple of days after the Waterboys and he got to see Steve Hackett play some Genesis songs. That must have been cool. Before that was a band from Rhode Island that played town once but made a huge mark on me. Great stuff! Next is the next song from Swale’s A Small Arrival.

4.) Electable – Swale
5.) The Low Lights – Sian Alice Group
6.) Traveler – Lir

Back in the early ’90’s Lir came over from Ireland, set up base in Boston and played Burlington a bunch of times. I loved all of those shows. Once night I went to The Monkey House, saw a couple of cool local bands, and Sian Alice Group from London played and blew me away. Go see music, you never know what that mysterious band in the listings might sound like. Hmmm Swale. New album soon? Next up, Linda Bassick plays with Tickle Belly at Radio Bean Friday mornings, plays with Steady Betty, and plays on most of the Moody Blues cruises.

7.) All I Need – Linda Bassick and Tickle Belly
8.) Wedding Song – Anais Mitchell
9.) Until The Day I Die – Slingshot Dakota

Tom Patterson and Carly Commando, aka Slingshot Dakota, just got married. Congratulations! Now they have to love each other until the day they die, they made vows. Wedding song is dedicated to them. Now, let’s go classic Burlington

10.) The Spy Song – Pinhead
11.) Opium Spy Thriller – Ninja Custodian
12.) Mary – Plan B

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



My brother Ken and I are going to see Hawkwind next week so I’m going to play some of them soon, but here is the first song on the new Fish album

Song After: Perfume River – Fish
