Radio Show 80 Thursday September 25, 2014 9-11PM 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. I had a fun idea for a theme and pulled it off nicely.

Second song before: A Glimmer – Queen Tangerine

Song before: Heroes (live) – King Crimson



From our small city to the great big word, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight I will speak a bit about the expanding and contracting nature of music, but on this cool autumn night, if you want to go for a walk, it would be good to put on your overcoat. This is Swale on Wbkm, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Overcoat – Swale 2.) Megaphone – Joshua Glass 3.) The Victory – And The Kids

And The Kids played a killer set at The Monkey House last Monday. Lots of Burlington’s finest musicians were there in the audience, including Josh. I really liked that song that I got from his page. This time of the year always makes me think of the Swale song. Last week, I finished the last song from Zola Turn’s Ninja Jane. The next album I will play all the way through, one song per week, is the EP Row from Anachronist.

4.) Big Enough – Anachronist 5.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian 6.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil and the band are playing two sets at the 4 Quarters brewery, in Winooski, tomorrow. The second set could be “interesting”. They start at 7. Swale’s 12th birthday party with And The Kids at Radio Bean is tomorrow at 9. It will be tough to make both with that timing. Also Gregory Douglas and Josh Glass are playing tomorrow in Winooski at Oak 45. Great song from Ninja! I caught this next singer last Saturday at Radio Bean. He did a great version of this.

7.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker 8.) Tell me – Linda Bassick 9.) Abiline – The Lonestar Chain 10.) Time In Space – The Cush

Lonestar just announced a show in November at Radio Bean! Yea. I hope that means a Cush show and a Dwellers show if Burette Douglas and Gabrielle Douglas are in town. Friend of the show, Linda is a great musician and a super person. Yesterday, I listened to the end or a radio show from Soho England where THE VACANT LOTS spent a lot of time with the host and played some cool songs including some of their own. This was one they played.

11.) Never Satisfied – The Vacant Lots 12.) Madrid Spain – The Lestons 13.) Paper Train – David L. Jarvis

Dave used to play all around town and is back in the neighborhood and just played a show in Wilmington with Mark Crowther as ‘Nuther Mother Brothers. It’s great to have them back rocking and I hope they come to town soon. I had to play that song from the Lestons because guitarist Matthew Stephen Perry‘s new band Dino Bravo is playing at Club Metronome at 11, and the Lots started their European tour in Spain. Up next is a suite of songs from a new album I’m trying to wrap my head around.

14.) Sequoia 1 – Binger 15.) Sequoia 2 – Binger 16.) Sequoia 3 – Binger

Nice lyrics about starting from roots and growing. Nice ability to be comfortable with almost any musical style. It’s autumn in Vermont. We don’t have Sequoia’s but we have apple trees and it’s harvest season.

17.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis Band 18.) 2 Hot 2 Be A Prostitute – The Lestons 19.) 6 AM – The Vacant Lots

I think I saw something saying the Lots might play town at the BCA center in October. They are out touring Europe, having songs mixed by Sonic Boom and putting out singles with Alan Vega. Way to live the dream Lots. I did not know the Lestons back in the day, but Matt’s next band, Party Star, used to play that song all the time. If the Cush come back to town, they should have a new album. Here’s one from their last.

20.) We Are The Beautiful Sunsets – The Cush 21..) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain 22.) One From Two – Linda Bassick 23.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

Milton played a killer version of that last Saturday at Radio Bean. He used a foot pedal to fill out the sound and his voice and guitar to drive the song. Great song from Linda, who also plays trumpet on some of the Phil Yates songs.

24.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates and the Affiliates 25.) Cinnamon Girl – Ninja Custodian 26.) Nothing’s Here To Stay – Anachronist

Great song from Static and Light the new Anachronist album. When they sent me the CD I bought, they tossed in a had written note with a couple of cool drawings. Thanks guys! Back in the ’80’s Ninja had some original songs but played a lot of covers. I love their version of that one. Well, if you’ve paying attention, you know the next song is another from And The Kids.

27.) Wiser – And The Kids 28.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music 29.) The Next Instead – Swale

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



Song after: Internal Exile – Fish

Second song after – Margaret (live) – Marillion
