Radio Show 37 Thursday November 14 , 2013 9-10pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from local music radio show number 37 on Wbkm Dot Org. It started acoustic, rocked harder and harder, then celebrated a birthday.
Song before: For A Moment We’re Strangers – The Church Band
From our small city to the great big world, these are The Sounds Of Burlington. A couple of weeks ago, at the Radio Bean birthday party, in the morning, I heard a great song from Joshua Glass. He just sent me a copy, so here is a song called What’s In California? on WBKM.org, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.
That was the fifth song from Alice Austin‘s To A Star In The Yard. There are so many great songs on that album and I will keep playing the album all the way through, week by week. Suddenly, this week, Joe Adler released an album called 11 11 11. That was one of the songs. Hana is playing Sunday at Radio Bean. Next up is a song that was everywhere in the ’90’s in Burlington.
I love that Elephants song and can’t wait to hear the new material they are working on. It’s been fun reading their blogs about putting the next album together. Lendway are a great band with great harmonies and great melodies and they are really great guys. It was fun hanging out with Todd at the WBKM birthday party, last Tuesday at Nectar’s. Phil is playing tomorrow at The Monkey House. He and the band always put on a great show. It’s November in Vermont and the sky is gray. Some people get depressed when there is less sun. A long time ago, I went through a battle with depression. I had some friends who helped, but I needed to find a way to engage with the world and music was the path that helped me. Please find whatever works for you. We need everyone engaged in the joy of life, including you. When I really needed something, this song was there for me. I held it tight, and it got me through.
Doll Fight might have broken up, but 2 of the 3 are in a new band called Gorgon who are playing Sunday night at Radio Bean around 11pm. Rough Francis were fun at the Lou Reed cover night last week at the Monkey House. They are playing Radio Bean on Saturday. Wow, so much music! I usually say good night here, but I had such a good time at the Wbkm birthday party, that I want to give you a taste. Bob Wagner, D. Davis and their band did a great job at the party. They ended with a killer Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? Here is a live version of the song by Bob Wagner and the Book ‘Em Blues Band from the 2011 WBKM birthday party.
13.) Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? – Book ‘Em Blues Band 14.) Long Gone – Seth Yacovone Band
Seth and his band did a great job at the party. His playing is so fluid and they really rock. In between his set and Wagner’s over the top version of Love, with ripping twin leads, Tony’s kids band, The Id, played some indie rock. Happy Birthday WKBM! Thanks for letting me be a part of you. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: High Wood – Fish
