Radio Show 34 Thursday October 24 , 2013 9-10pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from internet radio show number 34 on. I’m assuming you all turned down the sound on the world series to listen in. If not, the archived copy of the show will be available sometime. I played a set of shimmering songs and opened with an Orion, and the coming of winter, theme. The tagline for Stylus is: I don’t mind the cold, Orion…..
Song before: Orion – Jethro Tull
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a chilly day, and it’s a cold night here in the Champlain Valley. Winter is coming and it’s the time of Orion to light the sky. This is a song called Stylus of Id by a band called Somah on WBKM, and they are Burlington’s kind of music.
1.) Stylus Of Id – Somah 2.) All My Life – Wide Wail 3.) The Possibility Shop – The Red Telephone
Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton are such great songwriters and performers and have played lots of great music in Burlington. With a line like, you can stop at the costume shop, I though it was an appropriate song to play, since Halloween is next week. Definitely tune in, I have a cool show lined up for Halloween, which is next Thursday. I’ve got some great dark local music, and I think, a special guest. Wide Wail were stunning at times and rocked this town hard. Somah have lots of great songs, and this one always reminds me of this time of year. Next up is, essentially, the tile song of Alice Austin‘s To A Star In The Yard. It’s the second song on the album and I will work my way through the full disc, over the next several weeks.
The Bees came back from Texas for the summer, but haven’t played too much. Hopefully they will play a show or two before they go back. Dave is in Texas, and when he comes back to New York, I hope he writes more great songs like Sunflower. Peg can be regal and majestic, but at times she can just rock. This is one of those times. Alice rocks too and was such a huge part of the Burlington music scene for so many years. Next up, let’s play some blues, St Albans style.
I love the huge swell in Breathing. Matilda is so shimmering and cool and sounded great coming out of River. Hmmm Farm. OK, it’s almost time to go. I should grab another drink.
I loved the way the chaos at the end of the Lendway song mixed into the chaos of the Space beginning. Great Rock from Francis. Great harmonies from Lendway. Great song by Will. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Tim here for a moment more. This is the title song from Fish’s new album
Song After – A Feast Of Consequences – Fish
