Radio Show 113 Thursday June 4, 2015 9-11PM Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I highlighted some of the music that happened this week and celebrated getting a copy of The Mountain Says No’s album JV.
Song before: Cinderella Search (live) – Marillion
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s 9pm and still twilight and the city is alive with music. Myra Flynn is playing in the ally at Red Square. There’s a band at the restaurant on the corner of Church and Main. Flowers are filling the air with staggering scents and filling our eyes with their beauty. I’m very excited that one of my favorite bands just got me a copy of their new album. I’ve loved this song for a while and am thrilled that I get to play it for you now. This is The Bomb by The Mountain Says No on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.
Great song from when the great band resided in Vt. I just cannot stop playing that new Phil song. That one has been released, but the two before are so new, they are not out yet. OK, let’s play the last song, or is it, on Swale’s album The Next Instead. I’ll get to that question later.
I had fun with the 37 second overmix between TFAY and Mary. Great songs from the current rockers and Plan B who played Nectar’s all the time in the late ’80’s or early ’90’s. I love that Swale song!! This is another great song from the ’90’s.
Sometimes you feel like everything is going your way, and sometimes you feel dragged around the universe. That is dedicated to everyone who is going through a tough time right now. Things will get better. After listening to the Mountain song, I wanted to put it side by side with the Ninja and I think it really worked. Killer Peg song. This next band played almost every Friday in May at The Skinny Pancake. I caught the last one and was blown away!
Sarah played a killer show on the Friday at the Pancake that Iris did not. I love the build in that song. Killer song from Maryse Smith I saw this next performer at Radio Bean on Tuesday playing with a killer bass player named Tom Carvey. It was fun to see Aaron rip it up on the electric guitar.
15.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn 16.) Who Can Say? – The Mountain Says No 17.) The Cure – Thompson Gunner 18.) Gimme Shelter – The Rolling Stones with Grace Potter
That is an MP3 rip from a Youtube video but it sounds pretty good. I hope they release an official quality version. Wow, Grace sang with the Stones. I had to play the Gunner song to set it up, with the lyric I like the Stones You like the Cure. Another great Mountain song. Happy Birthday Jared Artaud
The Bees have been around for a long time and they keep appearing now and then to rock us happily. Yet another killer Mountain song. I think the album is coming out June 27th at The Monkey House. Mark your calendar. This next artist will be never satisfied until all people have a great shot at making something in their lives.
When they released The Next Instead they had Everyone Likes To as the lead off song, then put the alternate mix at the end. Since I’m finishing the album, I had to close with the remix. I like the circular idea of ending with the opening. I’ve loved that Mountain song for a while and that is a killer version of it that they assembled in the cave of legends. Many years ago Woody said this land is your land, and recently Binger said we all started from the same root and the tree keeps growing and growing. It’s nice to know we haven’t lost a thing. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: Lucky (the live version with the story about the badgers and the origin of rock and roll) – Fish
