Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will be broadcast from 9-11pm US Eastern Time and can be listed to from the Facebook page link above. It will go as follows:

Song before: In The Blue Light – jane siberry
intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for filling our town with music, sponsoring our station and for helping this first artist release his new album tonight.

1.) Every Evening After – Gregory Douglass
2.) Stumble – Andriana Chobot
3.) The Alchemist – Pours
4.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila

Madaila are a fun band and that is such a fun song. I love that Pours song and like to pull it out now and then. Another great song from Andriana Chobot. OK, let’s play the next song on Giant Places.

5.) Water Rose – Lendway
6.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
7.) Sometime Next Week – 1881
8.) Beaten Down – SWALE

Nice Beatles sound on most of those songs. 1881 were great last night at Nectar’s. I’m loving Milton’s new album. Hmmm, Lendway. This next set is inspired by a man who was beaten, but is nowhere near down.

9.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists
10.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT artists
11.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday

Such loving tributes to the man, and such great words by the man himself. OK, let’s play some rock and roll. I’m so psyched for the ENVY Reunion Show! tonight at The Monkey House that I found a way to be in two places at once. Here are a couple of Envy songs and a couple of related songs.

12.) Imaginary – Envy
13.) 1,000 Lies – Sean Toohey
14.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
15.) Sunday – Envy

That’s a classic from their Distorted Greetings album, as was the first song. Sean and Matt Hutton got together last year for the Places We Return RT album and that is one of the cooler songs from it. Great solo song from Sean. On bass with Envy will be Julia Austin so here is a song from her old band.

16.) Chop Wood Carry Water – Zola Turn
17.) All My Life – Wide Wail
18.) Finder – Madelines
19.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning

Those were all songs from the revered mythical 1990’s Burlington music scene. There is a myth that says the scene ebbs and flows but if you look deep enough there are always amazing bands out there. This is one of the great bands who played during one of the alleged ebbs.

20.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons
21.) Dementalist – Villanelles
22.) Symptom Of The Universe – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
23.) Tornado Head – Barbacoa

Barbacoa are opening for Envy tonight. I love the surf versions of the Sabbath songs that the Breaks do. Villanelles were great for all four Wednesdays in July at Nectar’s. OK, lets ease up a bit as we head towards the close. This band played 20 songs in an hour last Saturday at Nectar’s.

24.) BS Passes – Black Rabbit
25.) Angela Carter – Cricket Blue
26.) One For One – Andriana Chobot
27.) The Great Wide – Gregory Douglass

I thought I’d end where I began, with great songs from Gregory and Andriana. Cricket will play on Saturday at The Skinny Pancake and they are a great duo. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Outro

Songs after:
View From The Hill – Fish
Strontium Burning – TILT
Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington and tonight the town is hopping. There are people all over the place, lots of cars and motorcycles driving up and down main st. The kids went back to school this week, but it’s still a great summer night in town. Tonight I want to start with the upcoming Presidential campaign that is shaping up. No matter what you think, it’s important to elect smart compassionate people who are aware of the subtle intricacies of foreign policy. This first song is about AQ Kahn, the father of the Pakistani atomic bomb, and a cute ditty about unrequited love. Please choose leaders who know more about these kinds of things than rock stars. This is My Atom Girl by the Dirtminers on Wbkm and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) My Atom Girl – Dirtminers
2.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Yea, I finally got a copy of that song that has been played all over Burlington for the last year or so. Thanks Ryan Osswald. Killer song from the politically aware and very thoughtful Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter. He played a pretty cool show at Radio Bean last Saturday. Yes, when choosing a Presidential candidate, it’s nice if they have a good understanding of the American experience, but as the late great Bill Hicks (AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story) once said, “It’s a round world last time I checked” OK, back to music. Burlington had a wonderful guest come and play at Nectar’s for us last night. His name is Yonrico Scott and he’s played with the Derek Trucks Band and dozens of others. He was joined by a bunch of excellent Burlington musicians like Bob Wagner, Shane Hardiman, Josh Weinstein and others. Kat Wright got up and sang a couple of songs with him, which was pretty cool.

4.) Them Changes – Yonrico Scot
5.) You’ll Be The Sky – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Buttonz – Binger
7.) Man On The Side – Joshua Glass Music

I went to Radio Bean and saw acoustic Barbacoa then some of Sammich, which featured Dalton Muzzy from Binger on drums and Josh Glass on keys. They were pretty cool. I saw some of their set, popped over to Nectar’s for most of Yonrico Scot’s first set, then caught the end of Sammich. It was a fun time. In 2013 a well liked and regarded local DJ passed away from leukemia at age 38. Andy Williams, also know as DJ A-Dog, created such love that there was a huge party in his memory last year at Arts Riot. This year the party is on Saturday and is at both Nectar’s and Club Metronome with tons of DJs all day and night, and a show from Rough Francis.

8.) U Thought U Nu-Funk intro… – DJ A-Dog
9.) Exit Strategy – Rue Mevlana
10.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS

I’m pretty sure Francis really though A-Dog was righteous, so I wanted to play that one. Rue are playing a show in a couple of weeks called Motley Rue. Could be interesting. OK, here is the next song from JV.

11.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
12.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
13.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
14.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight

I love that song, and miss Doll Fight! Classic ’90’s Burlington rock song from Tokyo. I haven’t caught up with As in a while and would really like to. Killer Mountain song!! I first saw this next band when they played one of the legendary parties at Max Krauss‘ house. He moved to Boston and joined them for a new EP.

15.) Auxiliary Girl – Night Slice
16.) Flipside – Kimberly White Project
17.) Bomb – Envy

Classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. I totally cheated with Flipside since KWP play in the Carolinas, but a local musician, who now lives down there, turned me on to them, and I wanted to play a song. Thanks for the heads up Brian Wardrep. This next band played around New England some time ago, had a beer named after them at Vt Pub, then eventually broke up. They are doing a reunion show at Higher Ground on September 5th.

18.) Ocheh (Someday I) – Currently Nameless
19.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
20.) Tune Of An Onion – Currently Nameless

Sean Daily, aka Milton Busker, used to play with Nameless so I though it would be fun to toss one of his songs in between two of theirs. He’s playing Aug 30 at Radio Bean with his new band The Grim Work. This next band played around from 2003-2012 and released this compilation called When Nobody Was Looking. They featured Adam Rabin who went on to join Elephants Of Scotland, and totally flew under my radar. Rats. .

21.) Attempt No Landing Aria – Mailbox
22.) Micronesia – Mailbox
23.) The Other Room (live) – Elephants of Scotland

Elephants are a long way into the third studio album. I can’t wait. Tomorrow at Radio Bean is Vermont Joy Parade, Duke Aeroplane & The Wrong Numbers, and a solo set from Anna Pardenik.

24.) Trouble Of Your Bretheren – Anna Pardenik
25.) This Land Is Your Land – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

Getting back to the beginning, if you want a leader who will take care of your bretheren Bernie will do the job nicely. 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 Wbkm Dot Org. I had one stunning mix and played some sweet songs.

Song before: Wondering Where The Lions Are – Bruce Cockburn

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been thinking about eternity and the nature of what we are recently. It’s weird to think of the spirit that is you is so tied to a physical body, and that large wonderful body would be almost nothing if you took away the water. Let’s play some songs about water and think about what it means to be alive. This is Left One In The Rain by Alice Austin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
2.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
3.) Waterlanding – Swale
4.) Nothing But The Water II – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Great song from Grace talking about one of the uses of water, it’s a great thing to balance the element of fire. The Swale and Cush songs have such a lovely watery feel. (note: the mix from Orange into Landing was seamless). Of course, rain is a very important iteration of water. OK, let’s move on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes,

5.) Many Things & Many Scenes – Joe Adler
6.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell
7.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson
8.) Promises – Vedora

Great song from Vedora. Matt has a side project every Monday in February at Radio Bean from 7-8. Last week I worked until 7:30 and missed it. Rats. Great classic songs from Burlington’s past with Joe and Zoot, and great song from Burlington’s present by Joe. This next singer is playing the Bean on Saturday at 7. I’ll see if I can make it if I get out early enough.

9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
10.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies
11.) Kill The Lights – Monoprix
12.) Change My Heart – Rusty Belle

Rusty are from North Hampton but come to Burlington often. They are playing the Skinny Pancake on Friday. Cool song from Brett Hughes and co. The Anna song would have fit nicely into the first set. This next band is playing The Monkey House tomorrow.

13.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness

Great band name and sweet song. Hover were a ’90’s Burlington band. It’s almost time for the And The Kids new album and tour. If you liked the Hover song, you’ll like this next set too!

17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
19.) Throw Me Away – Spill
20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

That song used to rock Burlington hard and often. I love all of those rocking songs that helped Burlington to keep expanding the sound of our town. I’m very psyched for this show next week at the Flynn Theatre. These three bands will be rocking out.

21.) Scream – Sistas in the Pit
22.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
23/) Freakin’ Out – Death World Wide

I’m sending that set out to my brother Ken who will go to the show with me. OK, let’s head back to classic Burlington.

24.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
25.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
26.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
27.) Geograph (2015 mix) – Elephants of Scotland

Ending where we began, on the edge of sea and sand. Ken and I, and most of the elephants, will see the lights of Montreal this summer when we go see Rush. 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 Wbkm Dot Org. I played a lot of different music from a lot of different times, and talked a bit about those who have left us recently, either for natural or unjust causes.

Song before: Police On My Back – The Clash

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s getting cool in the Champlain Valley but the music is still hot. I just saw two punk trios at 242 Twofourtwo Main, 5 girls and 1 guy. It’s great that girls are rocking today, but they did back in the ’90’s too. Here is the next song from Ninja Jane on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Chop Wood/Carry Water – Zola Turn
2.Rock And Roll Is My Weapon – Ninja Custodian
3.) Flux Capacitor – Wave of the Future

Another great song from Wave’s new EP. Wave are playing Nectar’s on Saturday, after the ROUGH FRANCIS, Waylon Speed boat cruise. Wave are playing with Burning Monk and The Mountain Says No, I’m very psyched. Love the Ninja song and Zola have always been a favorite. This next band just played at The Monkey House this evening, but the timing was bad and I could not be there. I bet they played this one

4.) A Different Machine – Elephants of Scotland
5.) Plenty Hands – Parmaga
6.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

I just got the Anais album Young Man In America and loved Ships immediately. Same with the Parmaga EP. Up next is a song that I keep finding myself humming.

7.) Our Work Is Never Done – PossumHaw
8.) Pretty Little Things – Maryse Smith
9.) People Get Ready – Kip Meaker Trio
10.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson

Zoot was a legend when I was learning about music in Burlington. Kip was one of the greats, and sadly, just passed away. I’ve had a lot of Maryse songs running through my head since her show at The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival. The other album I just picked up is Crown Pilot.

11.) Julianne Wait – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
12.) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain
13.) Coming Down Again – Waylon Speed
14.) Staring Out The Window – Rough Francis

That’s going to be a heck of a show on the boat with both Waylon and RF. I have to work late enough that I don’t think I will quite make it, but will see. Great song by Burette Douglas and the gang, and that’s a pretty solid backing band with Lowell. Here’s another song from the new Crazyhearse album. It features Rebecca Rogers, who is no longer in jail in Cleveland.

15.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
16.) Toe Jam – The Toes
17.) Paper Train – David L. Jarvis
18.) New Age Woman – Pinhead

That was a couple of classics. Pinhead played in the ’80’s and Dave in the ’90’s. The Toes are always crazy fun. They are playing a fundraiser for the Psychedelicatessen. I stopped by, around 11:25, but the guy was saying they would have some quieter acts on, so I assumed I missed them. I’m loving the new Crazyhearse. This next band played the Monkey House tonight too, and I missed them too.

19.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
20.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
21.) Finder – Madelines
22.) The Fool – Poxy
23.) Shut Up – Gorgon

Gorgon and Poxy played a couple of beautiful sets at 242 Main. I had just enough time to check them out before this show. Madelines and Tokyo were great loud rock bands from the ’90’s. Let’s keep the rock going.

24.) Mad Mary Jones – THE VACANT LOTS
25.) Basalt Anchor – Vedora
26.) You Can Love If You Want To – Peg Tassey MUSIC
27) Extended Werewolf – farm

There’s only so much time indeed. Whether if’s people like Kip and Lauren Bacall who lived full lives or Robin Williams or the completely senseless killing of Michael Brown, we only have a limited amount of time. I like listening to music, like what Vedora have shared with the world, and following Peg Tassey‘s advice and choosing to love. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
