I’ve had to prerecord my shows recently to match up the Net signal with the FM signal. Tonight’s show will go as follows.

Song before: Let’s Go Crazy – Prince

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  I had to prerecord last weeks show so on Wednesday I saw the Church and then was gutted to hear that Prince had passed away on Thursday.  I had a ton of respect for him and was blown away the one time I saw him.  Both The Monkey House and Higher Ground have tribute nights to Prince coming up soon.  And, if Prince’s loss did not leave you cold enough, Vermont got a nice little snowstorm on Tuesday.  That’s such a Vermont thing to have happen.  It’s kind of wild to see flowers in bloom and covered in snow.  Local artist Jeremy Gilchrist took some cool pictures of the phenomena so let’s begin tonight with one of his songs.

1.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist
2.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara
3.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue
4.) Let’s Move – Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band

That’s such a great song from Kat and the band.  I can’t wait for the new album.  That’s a cool song from Cricket.  They are playing on Sunday at the Radio Bean, if you want to check them out.  That’s such a powerful song from Hana.  Great song from Jeremy.  OK, let’s play the next song from Callisto.

5.) Wishing Well – Alpenglow
6.) Stay – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Presence – Satori Bob
8.) Better Half – Abbie Morin

Abbie is recording a Live At The Fort show on Thursday night, tonight, at the Skinny Pancake.  Satori are a combination of John Baumann and Bob Gagnon.  John used to play that song at coffee shops all around Burlington.  Bob still plays all around Vermont.  I can’t wait until Slingshot come to town on May 10th.  Yea.  Great rocker from Alpenglow.  On Friday Binger release their new album at ArtsRiot.  Here is one of the new songs:

9.) If I Knew – Binger
10.) Sequoia I – Binger
11.) Sequoia II – Binger
12.) Sequoia III – Binger
13.) Strings – Bingr

That was another new Binger song.  The middle three were from their last EP.  OK, usually I play music by Vermont musicians but for this next set I will play some songs about Vermont.

14.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson
15.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
16.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
17.) Hallelujah The Hills – Hallelujah The Hills

Great Vermont references in that song.  Lindy used to always be the second band on at the Radio Bean birthday party, though not for the last couple of years.  I love the Burlington imagery in the Bern song.  Such a classic from Willie.  So, the HTH song was from an older album, but they just released a new one called A Band Is Something To Figure Out.  On May 12 Swale will head to Boston to play a show with HTH, so here is a song from the new album.

18.) Hassle Magnet – Hallelujah The Hills
19.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
20.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
21.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho

Classics from Chin and Broccoli.  Burlington’s music scene became so great back in the ’90’s and has stayed that way.  Great rocker from Swale.  I love that new Hills song.  OK, there is time for a few more.  Let’s keep rocking.

22.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
23.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
24.) New Age Woman – Pinhead

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

25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Outro

Songs After: Crucifix Corner – Fish

Emerald – Ace Frehley

Purple Rain – Prince

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It was an eventful week in our country and solar system. Lots of good and bad things happened. The coolest thing was the eclipse of the moon. It really gives you a perspective of your place in the universe, and shows the complex beauty of this place we get to live in. Celestial events are one of the universal things that everyone can share in. Children are another. We can all relate to the idea of getting older and seeing children born and growing and see the magnificent cycle of life. We have a local artist who plays music for kids every Friday at the Radio Bean. She just released an album of those songs. This is one of my favorites and always reminds me of the magic of life. This is Puff The Magic Dragon by Linda Bassick on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Matter Of Time – Eric George
2.) Puff The Magic Dragon – Linda Bassick
3.) Rame – Francesca Blanchard
4.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson

I just loved seeing the moon and wanted to play that one and be reminded of this summer when Neil Young had Lucas Nelson sing that one for us at the Essex Fairgrounds show. Francesca is releasing her new album Saturday in Stowe. If you like that song, check it out. Sorry about mixing up the first two song. Live radio, what can you do? If you like the Eric song, he’s releasing the album tomorrow at the North End Studio. Great song from Linda. I may get to more later. OK, here is the next song on No Need To Beg.

5.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
7.) Boys With Guns – Chin Ho
8.) Film Called Life – Jer Coons

Jer has made a lot of cool music to add to our town. I wanted to play a Chin song and picked that one because of yet another school shooting in our country. As long as we have lots of legislators who identify as pro life and pro gun, we can expect these sorts of things to keep happening. One of these days maybe we will get tired of it and find ways to stop it from happening. I saw Colin play that song at Radio Bean a couple of weeks ago. He was so nice to send me a copy. I love that it mentions Radio Bean, Pearls, The Monkey House and Club Metronome. It also mentions a band. Keep that in mind for later. Great song from Phil Yates and the band. This next song has been running through my head this week, so I thought I’d share.

9.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles
10.) It’s Happening – Anachronist
11.) Good Witch – Cricket Blue
12.) The Lion Sleeps Tonight – Linda Bassick

Another fun song from Linda. Sweet song from Cricket. I love that song from Anachronist! OK, sit back, relax, light up some incense, flip on the lava lamp. Let’s drift for a while.

13.) Armadillo – Swale
14.) Galactic Cannibalism – Wobblesauce
15.) The High Pass – Ozric Tentacles

Ozric are an English space rock band who played last Tuesday at Higher Ground. It was such a great show and I love how fast and fluid Ed is on the guitar. Wobble are from Boston and were the first band on. They were pretty fun and did a great version of that one. I’m sure they will be back. Hmmm, Swale. OK, let’s rock. This band was mentioned in the Colin Clary song.

16.) Round Sum – Cave Bees
17.) Be Aggressive – BE AGGRESSIVE
18.) Imaginary – Envy
19.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS

It’s so stunningly cool that we found actual water on Mars. I had to play the Francis song to celebrate. Killer song from Envy. Be just played Metronome with the Queers and a couple other bands. I like the Cave Bees too. I still have dad’s car for a bit so Tuesday night I made the last minute decision to go see Ozric. It was raining so hard I could barely see. I took Patchen road to get there, since I couldn’t drive faster than 25mph anyway. The other day Andrew X Smith asked people to post rain songs, so I posted this one.

20.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
21.) In The Rain – Plan B
22.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy

Sweet song from Burlington’s ’90’s. I have so many fond memories of seeing Plan Be at Nectar’s, all those years ago. Killer Alice Austin song. So, have you ever gone to a show. Have you ever been in the know, or gone to a show with someone in the know? Have you ever had backstage passes?

23.) BS Passes – Black Rabbit
24.) You Are My Sunshine – Linda Bassick
25.) So They Say – The New Siberians
26.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No

Love that song from Mountain. Is it time for the new Siberians album yet? Another fun song from Linda. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Sayonara.

27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. I started out with a couple of local highlights from the Neil Young show, then played some great local music.

Song before: Hymnalayas – Gong

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful day in Burlington and lots of people are out and about tonight. It was also a beautiful night last Sunday when Neil Young and The Promise Of The Real came to Essex. He came to Vermont to support our GMO labeling law, which is the subject of his new album The Monsanto Years. This is one of the songs from the album that heavily mentions Vermont and the importance of knowing what we are eating, This is A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop by Neil Young on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop – Neil Young
2.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson
3.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist
4.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner

It’s summer in Burlington and that was a band from Rutland and that was recorded at Nectar’s. Great new song from Jeremy. At the Neil Young show, Lucas and Micah Nelson were part of the Promise Of The Real. They are the sons of Willie and Lucas sang a great version of Moonlight In Vermont last Sunday in Essex. Oh, yea, it’s summer. Let’s head to the beach.

5.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
6.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
7.) Theme Song – Shark Victim
8.) Rising Suns – Mammal Dap
9.) Rise – Barika

Such a nice cool breezy song. If you like that song, head to Radio Bean tomorrow. Mammal just played Summervale earlier this evening. When you go to the beach, obey the lifeguard and watch out for sharks, especially when surfing. So, on Saturday there is a celebration of the Old North End of Burlington. People get together and walk around the ONE and check out art and music and food and what businesses are doing and all sorts of fun things. It’s called The Ramble and this next set of music is dedicated to Burlington’s Old North End.

10.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
11.) The North – Hana Zara
12.) North Street – Death World Wide

Killer rocker from Death. I love the imagery of the north end in Hana’s song. Loud and Proud nicely describes the ONE, thanks James. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the killer new album from The Mountain Says No.

13.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
14.) Getting High – Heavy Plains
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

I still remember that time when there were not a lot of cool rock bands around for a few months and then came Cannons. Oh, how they rocked so many great shows. Killer song from Particles who are touring all over the US and just played Toronto too. I’m still in awe of Plains from that Nectar’s show. Hmm, Signs And Wonders. Hmmm Mountain. When I put tonight’s show together the beginning just flowed then I hit a wall after Nowhere. I just wasn’t sure where to go next, for a moment.

17.) Where Do We Go? – Black Rabbit
18.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
19.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
20.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler

Killer song from Joe’s album. He’s done so much for the local music scene, especially writing and playing songs like that. Nice rocker form Raph Worrick and the gang. Classic VT song from Chin. Yet another great song from Rabbit’s new album Red Flannel Hash. Recently, there was a band who played a bunch of shows then just stopped. I’m missing them and feeling a little lacking, like maybe i need to take some vitamins or something.

21.) Vitamin Dee – Persian Claws
22.) Medula Mamblongata – Strung Out
23.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
24.) The Feeling – Vedora

Killer new song from the second Vedora album. If you liked the whistling on Birds, go check out Aaron next Wednesday at Red Square. Killer song form the classic VT band. I feel a bit better after that shot of Vitamin Dee, I hope you do too. I saw this next band twice last Thursday. They played Summervale, I left then did the show and walked into Light Club Lamp Shop just as they were about to go on. Both shows were great but the later one was out of this world. Here’s a couple of their songs.

25.) Honor Of The Rainbows part 1 & 2 – Arc Iris
26.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone
27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I might be off next week seeing the Decemberists but we can to it the week after that, and the week after that…..
