Radio Show 86 Thursday November 6, 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 played a lot of new songs, a couple of classics and a few with a liquid theme.

Song before: Glow Worm – The Church Band



From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. There was a ton of music in town this last week, and I will highlight a little of it. There were a bunch of great bands at 242 Main on Saturday. Here’s most of them, starting with headliner Slingshot Dakota on Wbkm and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Intro – Slingshot Dakota 2.) May Day – Slingshot Dakota 3.) Black Oil – Doom Service 4.) Last Song – Carraway 5.) 40 Days – Better Things

Brad Yandow and Brian LaClair from Better Things opened the show alternating acoustic songs. Doom Service played a heavy rocking set and I just got their new EP. Carraway were pretty remarkable and I had to find their new album today. I’ve loved every Slingshot show I’ve ever seen and they were just wonderful on Saturday. On Friday, I was at Club Metronome to help The Dirty Blondes turn 16.

6.) Hallelujah – The Dirty Blondes 7.) Staring Out The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS 8.) Another Year In Vermont – Gorgon

Gogon just released a new album. I got it today and had to get that song on the air. Rough Francis have been playing a ton of killer shows lately. They seem to be playing that one a lot. They played Friday at The Monkey House but I just could not make it. OK, let’s play the next song on Lipstick And Dynamite.

9.) Tarpaulin – Black Rabbit 10.) Vitamin Dee – Persian Claws 11.) Centralia – Night Slice

Night Slice have played town a couple of times and just put out that killer new song. Persian just released their album in digital form and added Dee as a new song. Last night I saw a killer band at The Monkey House.

12.) Bright Eyes – Allo Darlin’ 13.) Golden Crutch – Swale 14.) Army Of Pop Kids – The Smittens 15.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho!

With all the new music I’m playing tonight, I though I needed to toss in a classic. Jan did the job nicely. I couldn’t find any Let’s Whisper to play, they and Swale played a great show with Darlin’, so the Smittens was as close as I could come. Swale played a killer version of Crutch. Tomorrow, The Cush come back to town to play ArtsRiot. Here is a song from their first, second, and third albums.

16.) Precious Time – The Cush 17.) Small Town Movie – The Cush 18.) The Deer And The Owl – The Cush

Is it tomorrow yet??? The other day it was nice to get tagged in an FB post from Sasha Alcott and Peg Tassey, so I though it would be fun to play a song from each.

19.) Constant Disaster – When Particles Collide 20.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC 21.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis

It’s a rainy day, so I thought I’d play a sunny Dave song. Since it’s so cold, wet, and rainy, I though I should play a song by a band called Pours.

22.) The Alchemist – Pours 23.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone 24.) Three Cheers – Phil Yates & The Affiliates 25.) In The Rain – Plan B

Classic song from a classic Burlington band, and so appropriate on this rainy night. Phil Yates played that one at his solo show at Radio Bean and I’ve had acoustic versions of his songs in my head ever since. Great song by RT from their new album. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?



Song after: The Field – Fish
