Radio Show 64 Thursday May 29, 2014 9-10PM Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Seven Days.. Tonight was my, if you put in a lot of effort, and get slammed for no reason, I’ve got your back, show. It’s dedicated to
Song before:It’s All Too Much – The Church Band
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight, I’m going to switch things up a little and start with the next song from Dancing With the Big Guy. This is Devils In Trousers on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.
Last week Seven Days published a review of Elephants Of Scotland’s new album Execute And Breathe. The writer started with the first two paragraphs just saying how horrible progressive rock music is and no one that matters likes it. The rest of the review uses the standard cliched attacks on prog, but really did not give the reader any sense that the writer had solid musical credentials, and did not give the reader a sense of what the album sounded like. In that absence, I will give you that chance tonight. Here is the next song on Execute And Breathe, followed by all the others, then a song to provide some commentary.
4.) Amber Waves – Elephants Of Scotland 5.) TFAY – Elephants Of Scotland 6.) Boxless – Elephants Of Scotland 7.) Endless (Pt 1) – Elephants Of Scotland 8.) Endless (Pt 2) – Elephants Of Scotland 9.) Mousetrap – Elephants Of Scotland 10.) Tha Critic – Ninja Custodian
The Ninja song is dedicated to 7 Days. I love 99.9% of what they do and will not hold this against them, but if I see another review by that critic, I will not read it. I don’t know if you liked hearing the whole Execute And Breathe album, but at least you got a chance to hear it and make your own choice, and not have to take advice from someone who unnecessarily slags bands. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Hey guys, Tim here for one more song. This Fish song reminded me most of what it means to have to endure unnecessary criticism. Good criticism is fine, but the stuff that strays from that ideal is useless. After this song, I have a whole set of songs lined up that flirt with the edges of both pop and prog music and are very popular.
Song after: Raw Meat – Fish
You can listen to it here for the next week.
