Radio Show 97 Thursday February 5, 2015 9-11PM Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from my local music radio show on Wbkm Dot Org. I had one stunning mix and played some sweet songs.
Song before: Wondering Where The Lions Are – Bruce Cockburn
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been thinking about eternity and the nature of what we are recently. It’s weird to think of the spirit that is you is so tied to a physical body, and that large wonderful body would be almost nothing if you took away the water. Let’s play some songs about water and think about what it means to be alive. This is Left One In The Rain by Alice Austin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.
Great song from Grace talking about one of the uses of water, it’s a great thing to balance the element of fire. The Swale and Cush songs have such a lovely watery feel. (note: the mix from Orange into Landing was seamless). Of course, rain is a very important iteration of water. OK, let’s move on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes,
5.) Many Things & Many Scenes – Joe Adler 6.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell 7.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson 8.) Promises – Vedora
Great song from Vedora. Matt has a side project every Monday in February at Radio Bean from 7-8. Last week I worked until 7:30 and missed it. Rats. Great classic songs from Burlington’s past with Joe and Zoot, and great song from Burlington’s present by Joe. This next singer is playing the Bean on Saturday at 7. I’ll see if I can make it if I get out early enough.
9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith 10.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies 11.) Kill The Lights – Monoprix 12.) Change My Heart – Rusty Belle
Rusty are from North Hampton but come to Burlington often. They are playing the Skinny Pancake on Friday. Cool song from Brett Hughes and co. The Anna song would have fit nicely into the first set. This next band is playing The Monkey House tomorrow.
Great band name and sweet song. Hover were a ’90’s Burlington band. It’s almost time for the And The Kids new album and tour. If you liked the Hover song, you’ll like this next set too!
17.) Finder – Madelines 18.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning 19.) Throw Me Away – Spill 20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
That song used to rock Burlington hard and often. I love all of those rocking songs that helped Burlington to keep expanding the sound of our town. I’m very psyched for this show next week at the Flynn Theatre. These three bands will be rocking out.
I’m sending that set out to my brother Ken who will go to the show with me. OK, let’s head back to classic Burlington.
24.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail 25.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear 26.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot 27.) Geograph (2015 mix) – Elephants of Scotland
Ending where we began, on the edge of sea and sand. Ken and I, and most of the elephants, will see the lights of Montreal this summer when we go see Rush. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: Goldfish And Clowns – Fish
