Swale 016

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time April 13, 2017 over the air at 107.1FM and can be streamed at the Facebook page link for WBKM and will go as follows:

Song before It Can Happen – Yes

intro

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

What a great song from the Siberians. Depth are from NYC and will stop by Radio Bean on Sunday. Have you seen the video for Realization? It’s really fun. Great song from Kat and the band. This next singer is from MA but plays all around New England and visits us in VT on a regular basis.

9.) Blood From Your Gun – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
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
24.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

I love it when Milton plays that song. Wail rocked us in the ’90’s and Ninja were great back in the late ’80’s. Breaks always put on a fun show. This next band are playing tonight at SideBar.

25.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
26.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
27.) 25 Mile Per Hour Blues – Better Things
28.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
29.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Great rockers from Seth and Anders. It was nice chatting with Brian LaClair of Better Things on Saturday. He’s helping to bring lots of music to the basement this year. It’s always fun to play Clever’s music. I’ll likely play some next week too. Phil and the band are always fun. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for being such a great rock club and for sponsoring our station. Let’s begin with one of those great Burlington songs that gets performed now and then.

1.) Once Upon – Vedora
2.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton
3.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
4.) Bury Me – Forest Gray

Forest has so many fun songs. I wanted to play a song about flowers since we got a nice snowstorm this morning. Thanks Cricket. Great song from Peter. That was recorded live by Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio a couple of weeks ago. Last week I went back to the studio with Jeremy Gilchrist for the second part in the ongoing series. Here is the interview and the three songs he played.

5.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) Great Filter – Jeremy Gilchrist

Thanks to Ryan and Jeremy for making that happen. It will be fun to bring in bands to play live, now and then. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week. We are currently traveling though By My Side and here comes the rock song.

8.) The Light – Kat Wright
9.) A Question Mark To Answer – Seth Yacovone Band
10.) Little Song – Invisible Homes
11.) Ready To Race – Lendway

Those are all such great songs. Did you catch the theme? This next band will rock Foam Brewers tomorrow night.

12.) Surf Showdown – The High Breaks
13.) ME 262 – The Contrarian
14.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
15.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

That’s the title song from the brand new EP by Clever Girls. I really need to get out and see them soon. Great song from Mountain. Great cover from Casey Merlin Rae. If you want to hear surf music on a winter day, head to Foam tomorrow. It’s late, so let’s play some sleepy time music.

16.) Sleepwalker – 1881
17.) The Call – Swillbillie
18.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
19.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

Blondes, Hearse, and Billie will play at The Monkey House on Saturday night so that should be fun. Great song from 1881. Last week I played one of the new songs from Slingshot Dakota. Here is the other.

20.) Grudge – Slingshot Dakota
21.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
22.) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain
23.) Crazy – Clever Girls

I really like that Clever new EP. Lonestar will be back for a show in May as part of Waking Windows. Great songs from Siberians and Slingshot. OK, let’s keep rocking.

24.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
25.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian
26.) Hold me Tight – The Decentz
27.) Willow I – Tyler Daniel Bean
28.) Willow II – Tyler Daniel Bean

The video for Willow II is really cool. Decentz played in the ’80’s, the Ninja song was from the ’90’s and the Phil song is a couple of years old. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: What The Snowman Learned About Love – Stars

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Valentine’s Day was Tuesday so let’s begin tonight with a super talented artist who just released this new song.

1.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
2.) Filling In The Blanks – Kelly Ravin
3.) Sleep – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
4.) Your Eyes – Forest Gray

I loved seeing Forest the one time I saw him and really want to see him again. Lowell and Kelly are super-talented. I love that new song from Francesca. OK, it’s time to debut a new feature that I hope to bring to the show on a regular basis. Let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio. Ryan Cohen has agreed to record this interview and song.

5.) Able To Breathe – Peter Burton
6.) So Subliminal – Peter Burton
7.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton

Hopefully, in the near future we will do more interviews and have bands play live at Robot Dog and broadcast them on this show. OK, let’s play the next song on By My Side.

8.) Come Dance – Kat Wright Official
9.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
10.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
11.) Shepherd – Anais Mitchell

I dug deeper into the Young Man In America album and really liked that song. Great song from Maryse who used to play all over town. Linda is so talented and does such a great job promoting Girls Rock Vermont. Great song from Kat and the band. Last week I played a song from this band and wanted to go deeper into the album this week.

12.) Ocean’s Hourglass – Secret Heliotropes
13.) Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
14.) Powder – The New Siberians
15.) Goin’ Home – Eames Brothers Band

I love the bluesy sound of the Eames brothers. I’ve been playing a lot of new Siberians but that old song is pretty great too. I love that song from Will, who played around town in the 2000’s. Great song from Secret. This next band are playing tomorrow at the newly employed Switchback Brewing Company.

16.) I’m Thrilled – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
17.) This Melody – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
18.) Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft – Rue M.
19.) Golden Crutch – SWALE

Swale are playing on Saturday at a new coffee shop on Maple st called Maglianero so it will be fun to check out a new venue. Rue will play the Winter is a Drag ball that takes over Higher Ground this Saturday. Thanks for sponsoring us HG. Sarah and her band will rock the Rusty Nail in Stowe on Saturday and she always puts on a fun show. Phil and the band always put on a fun show too. This next band are playing at the show with Swale.

20.) Sharktopus – Villanelles
21.) Detective Norman – Sad Turtle
22.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
23.) Nothing In This – The Mountain Says No

Mountain will release their new album Golden Landfill at ArtsRiot tomorrow night. They just released a cool video of that song. The other three bands will play too, so it’s going to be a great show. So, you don’t need to be a musician and you don’t need to be a recording engineer like Ryan Cohen. You do need to find what works for you and let your passion drive you to accomplish what you want. In that way, we should all be like Ryan.

24.) Be Like Ryan – The Mountain Says No
25.) Slipstream – Black Ox
26.) Kaleidoscope – Arc Iris
27.) The Road – Anders Parker

Great rocker from Anders. Arc haven’t played town for a while but I’m sure they will be back soon. It was great seeing Cam Barrows last week so I wanted to play another song from his new band. Mountain have such a great new album coming out tomorrow. 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 internet only WBKM.org. I highlighted some of the local music that happened last week, will happen next week, and happened today. I also said goodbye to a legend with live music from Essex Jct Vt.

Song before: Maybe I’m Amazed – Paul McCartney and Wings

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a horrible mixture of rain and a wonderful mixture of sun in the past few days. Burlington is luscious and green. This first band played last Friday at Signal Kitchen and I just saw them earlier this evening at Summervale in Burlington’s Intervale. They played this one at both shows.

1.) Soul Piggy Bank – Swale
2.) Try And Try And Try – The Snaz
3.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
4.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Kat and the band are at the boathouse tomorrow on the waterfront when Burlington celebrates our nation’s birthday with a huge party and tons of fireworks. The band are also at Radio Bean tonight and Summervale next week. Madaila and the Snaz are two bands I’ve been wanting to see and will on Saturday when they play on a ferry on Lake Champlain. It’s about time, eh? Hmmm, Swale. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m working my way through, song after song, week after week. JV is such a great album.

5.) 3,000 – The Mountain Says No
6.) Too Good – Black Rabbit
7.) Cereal Killer Whale – Villanelles
8.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT

Dino played a killer show at The Monkey House last Saturday. The Mountain Says No opened the show with a stunning set, and released JV, then Dino rocked the end of the night away. Champlain is a fresh water lake, so no worry about whales when Villanelles play on the boat cruse Saturday with the other two. Another killer song from Rabbit’s new album Red Flannel Hash. OK, we lost a legend this week. I really got into Yes in the ’90’s and can’t believe Chris Squire has passed away. In September of 2004 they played a show with Anderson, White, Wakeman, Howe, and the mighty Chris Squire. Let’s say goodbye to him with a bunch of music from that show.

9.) Firebird Suite->Going For The One – Yes (official)
10.) Yours Is No Disgrace – Yes
11.) And You And I – Yes
12.) Awaken – Yes
13.) Every Little Thing – Yes

That was the opening, and most of set 2 from the Essex show. You will be missed Chris Squire! This is not from Essex but is from Chris and Jon Anderson

14.) Amazing Grace (live) – Chris Squire
15.) Where Have All The Flowers Gone? – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 VT musicians
16.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
17.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I’m not sure if I’m going to close all my shows with that one from now on, or show some restraint. I guess we will find out in the next few weeks. If you like the RT song, go to Radio Bean on Monday and catch The Nancy Druids. I don’t think they will play that song, but the songs they play will sound a bit like that. People are paying attention and coming out to see Bernie! It’s so great. 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 internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I promised it would start a little slow, get a bit experimental, then end with a bang. I think I delivered nicely.

After their show I played:

Firth of Fifth (live) – Genesis (With Peter Gabriel)
To Be Over – Yes (official)
Weeping Willow – Persian Claws

Song before: Lake Song – The Decemberists

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s fairly warm for a January night, through the wind is a little cool. It was a nice walk in this evening and it was a nice walk downtown last night when I saw this first singer at Nectar’s. This is Better Half by Abbie Morin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
2.) Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
3.) Powder – The New Siberians

Great song from the Siberians last album. They achieved their Kickstarter goal but if people keep chipping in, they will make the album cooler. Love that song from Will. I’ve got to check out Abbie again, maybe sometime when a killer band did not just play before her. OK, on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes.

4.) Many A Girl (Back of a Sail) – Joe Adler
5.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
6.) Lawnfire – The Pants
7.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Great song from the upcoming new Phil album. Classic ’90’s band The Pants, and I had to play a song of theirs following the ATK song. Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger played a nice version of that at Nectar’s last night, as well as some stunning versions of some of his other songs. I’m slowly getting to know this next band.

8.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
9.) Space Opera – Aram Bedrosian
10.) AV6 – Bad Smell
11.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila

I should check out their music more. I really like that song. Nice music from Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall Percussion. Burlington is such a small town, I ran into Aram in the grocery store before the show. Last week I played two new Alice Austin songs but she put three out. I would be remiss if I did not play the third one.

12.) What If I Don’t Go? – Alice Austin
13.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
14.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
15.) The Time Traveler – Jeremy Gilchrist

Jeremy is doing the Rock Lotto thing Saturday morning. It’s where a bunch of musicians form new bands for the day, write three songs and do one cover and play the songs later that evening at Club Metronome. Any other musicians up for the challenge? It’s a benefit to raise money for Girls Rock Vermont. Great song from Hana. I can’t wait for the new album. It’s going to have tons of great songs!! I love that song by Milton. I saw this next band once, and would like to see them again.

16.) Singing Songs In Your Sleep – Carraway
17.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
18.) Open Road – Death World Wide
19.) Hungry – Heavy Plains

HP have their debut album coming out. They are playing Saturday at The Monkey House. Nice song from Death’s third album. Cool song from the ’90’s in Burlington. OK, let’s rock for a while.

20.) Hello World – Screaming Skulls
21.) Extouring – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars
22.) Tic Toc – Doll Fight
23.) Vestibule – Blue Button

Killer song from BB. I miss Dollfight. I’ve got to catch JCHA sometime. In Burlington, there is a part of town called the Old North End and its residents are proud.

24.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
25.) North Street – Death
26.) Wino – REDadmiral

That song was recorded live at the Old North Ender Pub on North St. Nice song from Death’s third album. It’s almost time to go but let’s rock a bit more.

27.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
28.) Institution Street – The Red Telephone
29.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
30.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons

Nice eponymous song from FTC. Wow, they rocked hard for a couple of years in town. Killer song from Rabbit. I love that rocker from RT. 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’s a beautiful fall evening in Burlington. Let’s start with a band who used to play in town and have a new album done, but not yet in my hands. This is from their first ep. This is Jet Pilot High by The Red Telephone on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Jet Pilot High – The Red Telephone
2.) 1965 – The New Siberians
3.) Satellite – Guster

Ryan Miller played a set last Friday at Radio Bean in between Swale sets. He played that song on acoustic guitar, talked Joe Adler into playing drums, and taught Amanda Gustafson the keyboard riff. It was a fun time watching it come together. Great song from the Siberians, who should have some new songs soon. Yea! I loved Swale’s sets last Friday. Here is another one from their new album The Next Instead.

4.) Before The Night – Swale
5.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
6.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

Great rocker from Joe’s new album. And The Kids played the show after Swale’s second set and brought a dedicated crowd. Keep an eye on them. I may head to The Monkey House on Saturday to check out this band.

7.) Shut Up – Gorgon
8.) Cookie Jar – Astrocat
9.) The Process – Pinhead

Classic Burlington band. Astrocat are playing the Monkey show too and that song sounded like it would go great into the Pinhead. Here is the next song from the Anachronist ep Row.

10.) Mary – Anachronist
11.) Mary – Plan B
12.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn

Zola and Plan are classic Burlington bands. Lots of great rock in both Marys. Let’s quieten things down a little.

13.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
14.) You Are Not The Photograph – Swale
15.) Hollywood – Lendway

Great song by a classic Burlington band. Killer Eric Olsen guitar work in the Swale song. I listened to the whole Roots In The Rabbit Hole album today and loved this one.

16.) Calypskango – Binger
17.) Grounded – Invisible jet
18.) WalkingInCircles – Raq

I love that song. I was dancing around the studio and had the volume cranked. Great stuff from Jet. This next band are hoping to get on a cruise or open for a great bands festival, or both.

19.) Endless (pt 2) – Elephants of Scotland
20.) Afraid Of Sunlight – Marillion
21.) Going For The One – Yes (official)

I could hear Elephants open for the 2015 Marillion weekend, or play on the 2015 Cruise to the Edge with Yes, and lots of other prog bands. Links below if you would like to vote for them. Yes was live from 2004 in Essex Jct, and Marillion once played club Toast as a trio. Since we’re a little spiritual, and out of town anyway…

22.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks (AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
23.) Buttonz – Binger

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