Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM can be heard from the Facebook link, will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time tonight, and will go as follows:

Song before: It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station. They have a packed week of great bands. I just got a copy of the new album by Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band called By My Side. It’s really good so let’s dive right into it.

1.) Come Dance – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists
3.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vt Musicians

That was recorded in the 1980’s but still sounds so relevant today. With the upcoming election, if we can’t vote for Bernie, we can still follow his advice. Please vote and please don’t vote for the clown. OK, it’s time for the next song on the Invisible Homes album Song For My Double that I’m playing all the way through week after week until it’s done.

4.) The Clown – Invisible Homes
5.) Who’s Your Fool? – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
7.) Jazzmaster – Made by Robots

I caught Robots over the summer at Jazzfest and really liked them and have been wanting to play some of their music. Jet were a classic band from Burlington’s illustrious ’90’s. Another great new Kat song. OK, so today is my Mom’s birthday. I spent some time this morning with her and my brother. She really likes this classic Vermont singer, so this one goes out to you Mom.

8.) The Power Of The Word – Jon Gailmor
9.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
10.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
11.) Monarch Butterfly – Jenny Montana

Jenny used to play that song in the 2000’s though I have not heard from her in a while. It’s such a fun song. Jeremy Gilchrist is raising money to make his new album Threaded. If you like that song, please consider supporting him by pre-purchasing it. Maryse still comes back to play now and then and Jon is a local legend. This next band release their new album Traces tomorrow (I knew it was soon when I recorded the show but did not realize it’s out tomorrow).

12.) 1 – Madaila
13.) Nature – Madaila
14.) You Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
15.) I Do – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
16.) Woods – Madaila

Those were the opening closing songs from Madaila’s Traces album and two more great new Kat songs. Yesterday, I went to Nectar’s and saw Sue Minter, Peter Welch, Pat Leahy, and Al Franken. Al was very serious and very funny and really wants us to go out and vote. Before and after the speeches was a tremendous show of music from Bob Wagner and friends. Here is a song from Bob’s other non indomitable band to give you a hint about what they sounded like yesterday.

17.) Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? – Book ‘Em Blues Band
18.) The Light – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Another great new Kat Wright song. Yes, Bob really is that great of a guitar player. Tuesday is election day and there is a show at Nectar’s that night so everyone can go out and party and not have to be alone, whichever way it works out. Here are a few of the bans that will be here.

19.) The Magic Robot – James Kochalka
20.) Hermaphroditus – Rue M.
21.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
22.) Oh Dirty Blondes – Dirty Blondes

If you are looking for music next Tuesday check out The Dirty Blondes Present: Exit Poll 2016 at Nectar’s. With those fun bands, and more, it’s going to be a great show. This next song has been running through my head all week. I hope you enjoy it.

23.) Black, Blue and White – The New Siberians
24.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
25.) Sleepwalker – 1881

That song has been running through my head a lot lately too. Great song from Elephants. Our Earth is not random, it’s the only one we’ve got, so let’s do all that we can to take care of it, and us by default. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? See ya, ta ta, farewell….

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
13th Star – Fish
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
Hand Of Doom – Black Sabbath
Sat In Your Lap – Kate Bush
Cascade – Andriana Chobot
What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM and streaming at the WBKM Facebook page featured some highlights of the music that happened in town last week, highlighted a couple of upcoming shows and featured a bunch of new music from a cool Burlington band.

Song before: Almost With You – The Church

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last week I made it to one of the Hedwig and the Angry Inch shows they did at ArtsRiot. I loved the show and the local band who just rocked. The show had lots of glitter and sparkle and it made me think of this classic Burlington song.

1.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
2.) Midnight Radio – Hedwig and the Angry Inch original cast recording
3.) Popular Crowd – Swale.

Swale played the Hedwig after show party and played some great songs, many of them new. I love the build in Midnight which was the ending song from Hedwig. I love Zola. OK, it’s time for the next song on Alpenglow’s album Callisto.

4.) Holiday – Alpenglow
5.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
6.) Sun In The Sky – Ninja Custodian
7.) Upstream – The New Siberians

I’m loving that new Siberians song. Brendan Devitt is in the Siberians now and was in Ninja back in the day. I want to dedicate Sun to everyone who is going through a rough time. There is always a sun in the sky and you are a valuable part of the life that keeps moving on. We’re all in it together so help your friends and let them help you when you need it. Classic song from Zoot. What a legend in Burlington. Great new song from Alpenglow that is a bit more rocking than usual for them. This week, Cricket Blue released a new EP called IO. It’s full of legendary imagery and great music.

8.) Angela Carter – Cricket Blue
9.) Eleanor – Cricket Blue
10.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue
11.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue

Wow, what an EP. I just could not pick one song so I had to play it all. OK, it’s the political season. I love the opening line to this song. It’s all about it being OK to disagree and not have to talk about it if you do.

12.) East Jabib (live) – REDadmiral
13.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
14.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists

I love the version of the classic song done in honor of Bernie Sanders by a ton of great local musicians. The Bern song has such a nice portrait of life in Burlington. Great song from Admiral. They will be one of the many bands playing at the Monkey House on 4/20. This next artist will be at that show too.

15.) Relax – Joe Adler
16.) Winter Is Over – Apartment 3
17.) Monocacy – Slingshot Dakota
18.) You Took – The Church

Unfortunately, I will miss the Monkey 420 show since on April 20 I will go to the Tupelo Music Hall in New Hampshire and see The Church. They will play all of The Blurred Crusade so I had to play You Took and start the show with Almost With You. I’m so excited. I’m also excited by Slingshot Dakota playing at the Monkey House on May 10. I’m loving their new album Break. Apartment will be at the 420 Monkey show. That’s a pretty cool song. Hmm, I love Joe songs. Let’s keep with the theme, and if this next set makes you want to call your legislators, feel free.

19.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains
20.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians
21.) Grandma Betty – Brother Zag
22.) Space Weed Zombies – Wave Of The Future

I love the funky heavy rock of Wave. Great song from one of Burlington’s most obscure singer songwriters. Seeds is from the Siberians first album. Plains are such a great rocking band, especially live. OK, let’s keep rocking.

23.) Poem For Torin/Ethan’s Stoned – Peg Tassey
24.) The Bomb – The Mountain Says No

I may have to head over to Manhattan Pizza after the show and see Mountain. They go on at 11:30. Fantastic song from Peg. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Ta ta, farewell, see ya.

25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
Outro

Song after: 3D – Fish
Tantalized (live) – The Church

I had a fun time doing my local music radio show last night on 107.1FM and on the internet at WBKM.ORG. It’s just amazing how much great music we have in this town.

Song before: On The Air – Peter Gabriel

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last night I got a chance to go to WRUV and hang out while the Nancy Druids played live in the studio on their local music show Exposure. The Druids don’t have anything recorded yet, so let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean’s former band, and that will give you a hint of what they sound like.

1.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
2.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
3.) The Next Instead – Swale

I love the sweep of the Swale song. They will play a fun show next week, but more on that later. The High Breaks play fun and intense surf rock, and recently rearranged several Black Sabbath songs into surf versions. They released them all for free on Bandcamp so I had to play one of the songs. Great song from Telephone. OK, it’s time for the next song on the Bernie Sanders EP that I am working my way through, song after song, week after week until I’ve played it all.

4.) Where Have All The Flowers Gone – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont artists
5.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
6.) Dreaming Too Much – Alpenglow
7.) Break – Slingshot Dakota

That is the title song from Slingshot’s brand new album. They are from PA but come to town to play on a regular basis. They will be at the Monkey House May 10th, Another great new song from Alpenglow’s new album Callisto. Cricket have shows coming up in March and April all around New England. I think they have new music coming soon too. So, a week from Saturday, there is a show at Higher Ground to show a movie that was recently made about ’90’s rock band The Pants. They will show the movie, ‘High Water Mark, The Rise And Fall Of The Pants” then Swale will be the house band and lots of local musicians will come up to play Pants songs. Here’s a few that will join in.

8.) High Water Mark – The Pants
9.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail
10.) Satellite – Guster
11.) Hit – Blue Button

Jason Cooley and Eric Olsen from BB will be at the show. Ryan Miller from Guster will be at the show. Amanda Gustafson from Wide Wail will be at the show, and Tom Lawson from the Pants will be at the show. I’m sure lots of others will be there as well. OK, the Surf Sabbath song was so fun, let’s play another.

12.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
13.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink Or Swim
14.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death

I was watching Vinyl last week and it was so cool when Politicians played. I thought it would be fun to pull it out this week. Great song from local rockers Swim. The Surf versions of Sabbath songs are so fun. Here’s a song I’ve always enjoyed.

15.) 1965 – The New Siberians
16.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) The Bomb – The Mountain Says No

Great song from Mountain. Finder is a classic from the ’90’s. Aaron is such a great guitar player and songwriter. The Siberians song just rocks. OK, let’s play another new Slingshot song.

19.) Monocacy – Slingshot Dakota
20.) The Call – Swillbillie
21.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz

Tight always gets me dancing around the studio. I hope you had fun with it too. Great strong song from Swillbillie. I love everything about that Slingshot song. This next song is a new one that has been getting me going lately.

22.) If I Knew – Binger
23.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
24.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists.

Such a lovely version of that song from some of the area’s finest musicians. I love the lyric in the Bern song. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Song after: Cliche (live) – Fish

Help Wanted – Wide Wail
Song In Space – The Church

Song before: Judy Is A Punk – The Ramones

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Former Mayor of Burlington, Bernie Sanders, did pretty well by winning four states on Super Tuesday. It’s so inspiring to see him doing so well in his run for the US Presidency. He is that rare politician who lays our specific plans to make life easier for Americans, so it’s inspiring to hear him speak, but is really inspiring because of his record of accomplishment. He has inspired a lot of citizens and artists and musicians. Here is some music inspired by Bernie Sanders.

1.) I Saw Bernie Sanders At Al’s French Fries – Patrick Heltz
2.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists
3.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
4.) Bernie Is A Punk – Bern Unit

Nice reworking of the Ramones Judy Is A Punk by the California band. Violint is a woman named Emma Sky who used to live in town. I love the references to knowing Bernie personally and the humable Feel The Bern chorus. Lovely song from Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, and the rest of the crew. It was great seeing lots of those musicians on stage with Bernie in Essex on Tuesday night. Great song from Patrick about seeing Bernie about town. Bernie and Al’s are two Burlington classics. Last week I finished the last song from the Black Rabbit album Red Flannel Hash. It’s time to start a new album to play song after song, week after week, until it’s done. Of course, it will be the album that Bernie Sanders recorded back in the 80’s with 30 Vermont musicians.

5.) Oh, Freedom – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Musicians
6.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks
7.) Freeway – David Rosane and the Zookeepers
8.) If I Knew – Binger

I love the vitality of the lyric in the Binger song. The whole set was about people getting along and working together to make a great world. Freeway has that feel, and is a good rocking song. Bill was a preacher on par with none, and one of the funniest people who ever walked the planet. Yea Bernie. So, something cool happened this week. Alpenglow released their first full length album.

9.) Been So Long – Alpenglow
10.) Northern Skies – The Lindbergh Baby
11.) The Blackout – The Static Age
12.) Stop – REDadmiral

Great fun rocker from Admiral. I love the sound and flow of the Static song. I used to work with Scott Broderick and love that song from his band. Hmmm, Alpenglow. So, I saw a cool show last week at the Rusty Nail in Stowe. They ran a school bus from Nectar’s to the show, so I took the ride and saw Dark Side of the Mountain play a stunning Pink Floyd tribute show. This was the encore.

13.) Echoes->Comfortably Numb->Echoes

Because, if you are going to play a 23 minute song for your encore, why not throw in another 7 minute one in the drifty section in the middle. Stunning show. This next artist has been playing her well crafted songs all around.

14.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
15.) Poem For Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey
16.) No Countries – And The Kids
17.) Popular Crowd – Swale

Great rocker from the great band. Kids have been playing a ton of shows all over lately. Go see them if you ever get a chance. That is such an epic song from Peg. Sadly, she just lost her mom. My heart goes out to you Peg! This next band played Metal Mondays last year and blew me away. They came back this Monday and played another great show.

18.) Crystal King – Holy Grail
19.) A Different Machine (live) – Elephants Of Scotland

Killer song from the local prog band who occasionally plays Metal Mondays too. Grail rocked last Monday! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Good bye. See Ya. Ciao.

20.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Binger have been playing some great shows lately, both in Burlington and all around. They have a brand new song that features Stephanie Heaghney on vocals, and the usual spiritually alive lyrics. Let’s take a listen.

1.) If I knew – Binger
2.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders
3.) Freeway – David Rosane and the Zookeepers
4.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists

I just love the version of the classic that Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, and lots of others put together to honor Bernie Sanders and to stand behind him. Freeway has a revolutionary spirit, in a Bernie kind of way. I caught David last night at Radio Bean and enjoyed the two songs I heard. He is playing a Bernie benefit in West Newbury on Saturday. Classic from the album Bernie recorded back in the ’80’s. We get to vote for him on Tuesday here in Vermont. Last night, I went out to Higher Ground to see the Wee Folkestra. I don’t have any of their music, but many members of the band played on this album.

5.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
6.) Foxy – Abbie Morin
7.) What’s In California? – Josh Glass
8.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone

I love that new Telephone song. Sean, from the band, played a great show last night at Radio Bean with his new band The Nancy Druids. I caught Josh Glass at the Marriott last Saturday and really enjoyed the show. He did a great version of that song. I caught the first set by Abbie Gail at Nectar’s last Saturday after Josh and loved it. OK, let’s play the last song from Red Flannel Hash.

9.) Where Do We Go? – Black Rabbit
10.) Affection – Guppyboy
11.) My New Mixtape – Eef
12.) Knucklehead – Screaming Broccoli

Classic from Borccoli. Such a fun song. Great new song from Eef. Guppy were a big influence on the Burlington scene in the ’90’s. Great song and album from Rabbit. I saw this band a while ago at Metal Monday and they are coming back to play Nectar’s this Monday. This is dedicated to my brother Ken who is going to the show with me.

13.) Descent Into The Maelstrom – Holy Grail
14.) No Way – Phantom Suns
15.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
16.) Finder – Rocketsled

Great cover of the Madelines song from Rocket. I haven’t seen As We Were for a while but always enjoy them when I do. Killer song from Phantom who have been playing a ton of shows lately. What a rocker from Grail. That should be fun on Monday. This next band come to town every year or so. They are coming back in May with a new album. Here is one of the new songs.

17.) Paycheck – Slingshot Dakota
18.) I Need A Raise – Cave Bees
19.) Morning Again – Doll Fight
20.) Yardsale – Lendway

I miss Lendway. Great rocker from Doll Fight. Don’t we all Cave Bees, don’t we all? Killer new song from Dakota. Is it May yet? Last week I played a song from the new Gregory Douglass album. I dug into it a bit more this week and really liked this one.

21.) The Great Wide – Gregory Douglass
22.) Never Cry – David Rosane and the Zookeepers
23.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
24.) This Machine – Invisible Homes

Never is another cool song from David. The lyrics suggested the Homes song, and Homes are playing The Monkey House tomorrow. Never also suggested the Jeremy Gilchrist song so I though it would be cool to line those up like that. OK, time for a couple more. Here is another new live song from When Particles Collide.

25.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
26.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

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

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with the title song from one of Burlington’s coolest artists. He’s moved away, but still comes back to play now and then.

1.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass
2.) As Glass – Wren Kitz
3.) Soul Piggy Bank – Swale
4.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists

It’s so cool that so many local artists got together to record this song as a boost to the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. It features Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, Marie Claire Johnson, and lots of others. Swale played a great show at Light Club Lamp Shop last Saturday and did a great version of that one. That’s a new song from Wren’s just released album For Evelyn. Great song from Gregory. I just ran into Abbie Gail since she just finished a US tour and arrived back in Burlington. Her band, Abbie Morin, will be at Nectar’s on Saturday. Here’s a live song from the road.

5.) Barstools – Abbie Morin
6.) Barstool Blues – Seth Yacavone Band
7.) The Call – Swillbillie
8.) Constant Disaster (live) – When Particles Collide

That’s a live version from Particles new album Live At The Sinclair. Great stuff from the rocking duo who will be on the road soon. Great song from a local band I have not yet caught. Seth did such a great job with the Neil Young songs at the WBKM birthday party last year. It’s cool to have a recording of that. Great song from Abbie. It’s time for the next song on Red Flannel Hash. I held off playing the album so I could start it so that this song would be appropriate. It’s chilly tonight, was 55 on Tuesday, was -13 (or so) on Saturday. It will be in the 40’s for the weekend. Well, for tonight this song is mostly true.

9.) It’s Cold – Black Rabbit
10.) Still Life Scene – Envy
11.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
12.) Endless Parts 1 & 2 – Elephants Of Scotland

What great versions of those Elephants songs. Those are from the live at Gettysburg album. The whole band is great, but how about the drumming and chime playing from Ornan McLean? Ornan is going through a tough time sine he lost his mother a couple of days ago and today is his birthday. I had to play a chunk of Elephants for him and had to play the song about him from one of his other bands. Best of luck and heal as soon as you can Ornan! Sean and Ann Mindell from Envy will be at Radio Bean next Wednesday in their new band The Nancy Druids. Great song from Rabbit. Last week I missed the Mountain Says No at the Monkey House, but just because I slacked, doesn’t mean you have to miss them.

13.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
14.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
15.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
16.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian

Killer song from Ninja. Great song from Phil from before he became affiliated. Great songs from Telephone and Mountain. This next song is about a crisis in America that necessitates the phrase Black Lives Matter.

17.) Blind Pigs – Rough Francis
18.) The Eldridge – Cameo Harlot
19.) Captain 20 – Barbacoa
20.) The Territory – Hana Zara

Great song from Hana’s 2015 album The North. Cool rocker from Barbacoa. Cameo were a great band that featured Paul Comegno on guitar and vocals. Now he is just playing guitar with Rough Francis. OK, let’s take the energy down a bit with a cool song.

21.) The Alchemist – Pours
22.) All Your Basis – Invisible Homes
23.) Kids – Wren Kitz
24.) Doris – Wren Kitz

Those last two are the closing songs and pieces of effects from Wren’s new album For Evelyn. Cool new song from Homes. Now, how will Sean Witters pull that one off live? Fun song from Pours. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It finally snowed and got a little cold, but my heart is nice and warm after seeing Bernie Sanders do so well in New Hampshire this week. He has inspired a lot of people, including several of our wonderful local musicians. Recently, several of them got together to record one of the songs Bernie recorded for his album, so many years ago. Tonight let’s begin with Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, Marie Claire Johnson, Kelly Ravin, and many others doing a classic in honor of Bernie.

1.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists
2.) Oh Freedom – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Artists
3.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit

That is the next song on their wonderful album Red Flannel Hash. I’m working my way through that album song by song, week by week. Original is such a fun rocker. I had to go back and play one of the Bernie classics and put it back to back with the new Bernie classic. Just listening to the performances, we are truly blessed in Burlington, and have been for a long time. You can just feel the love flowing out of Land. OK, for the rest of the show tonight we are going to rock out. I just got a copy of the 8th WBKM birthday party show that Seth Yacovone played for us at Nectar’s on November 12, 2015. They called themselves Real Old & Insane Donkey and played all Neil Young songs, Here it is in its entirety.

4.) Hey Hey My My
5.) Powderfinger
6.) Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
7.) Down By The River
8.) Sedan Delivery
9.) Barstool Blues
10.) Cortez The Killer
11.) Piece Of Crap
12.) Fuckin’ Up
13.) Cinnamon Girl
14.) Cowgirl In The Sand
15.) Rocking In The Free World
16.) Like A Hurricane

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

17.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
