Radio Show 72 Thursday July 24, 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 Wbkm Dot Org. With the terrible events in the news this week, I posited that every race and ethnicity is full of wonderful people, but somehow the “leaders” of the world, not all but several, seem to be able to create great pain and suffering.

Song before: The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range – Roger Waters



From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Let’s begin with a Burlington musician that you might have seen if you were on the right porch at the right time in the Old North End, over the years. He’s very political and has something to say about many of the leaders of the world. This is Mad Captain by Brother Zag on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music

1.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag 2.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin 3.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith 4.) Dear God – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Kat and the band will play at The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival next week. They are always a good time. Maryse is playing too and I’m excited to check out her new material with Michael Chorney. Great new song from Alice. The brother Zag song makes me think of our common humanity and that everyone on the planet looks up at the same stars. Here’s the next song on Ninja Jane.

5.) Same Stars – Zola Turn 6.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western 7.) Let Go – Lowell Thompson 8.) Venus In Spurs – Barbacoa

It will be fun to see Barbacoa at the Precipice. Sometimes Lowell sits in with them, so that will be really cool if it happens this year. Great song from GW. They played a nice show at Radio Bean on Tuesday, and played lots of new songs! Great song from Zola. Last Saturday I went to Signal Kitchen to see this band.

9.) Solitude – Alpenglow 10.) WhoNeedsFriends – Paper Castles 11.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis 12.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse

I missed them last time they were in town but will see them Saturday at The Monkey House. There are sunflowers all around Burlington, so I wanted to play the Dave song. Padraic Reagan and PC did a great job opening for Alpenglow. This next band are playing the Precipice and the Monkey with Crazyhearse.

13.) Burn – The Dirty Blondes 14.) Carnage – Black Rabbit 15.) Black And Red – ROUGH FRANCIS 16.) Everyone Likes To – Swale

Swale will be playing the Precipice and doing double duty with them playing as a karaoke band with pro and amateur singers doing fun covers, as well as their usual set. Rough Francis always rock and are playing the Precipice too. Rabbit got a nice write up from Dan Bolles in Seven Days this week. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?



Song after: Crucifix Corner – Fish
