Radio Show 116 Thursday June 25, 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.org. It started slow and classic then began to rock, then opened up to the world.
Song before: Closer To The Heart – RUSH
From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. On Sunday I went to Montreal with my brother Ken to see Rush, and listened to a couple of old shows. This song jumped out at me so I wanted to start the night here. This is Yardsale by Lendway on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.
1.) Yardsale – Lendway 2.) Twisted – Guppyboy 3.) You Home (Keep Safe Mix) – Eef 4.) Good Witch – Cricket Blue
Cricket have been getting a lot of mentions for their beautiful music. I just checked out their EP today and it’s quite nice. Eef are getting back together for some shows. Cool. I can’t believe I don’t play Guppyboy more often. This next singer is in town for a few days.
Love the reference to the old north end of Burlington in that song. Maryse Smith played a killer show at Signal Kitchen last week. Milton will be at Radio Beantomorrow at 8:30. OK, let’s rock with the next song from JV.
Killer rocking song from the Bees! BB are a great band too! Black Rabbit have a new album out called Red Flannel Hash. It’s really good and that was the first song. This next band are playing tomorrow at Signal Kitchen.
Dino will play with The Mountain Says No Saturday night at The Monkey House when Mountain officially release JV. Another killer new Rabbit song. I just can’t get enough of Earthquakes. Tonight at Light Club Lamp Shop Jeff Howlett is taking tintype pictures of Burlington people. I stopped in earlier and had my picture taken. I’ll stop by later to pick it up. He used to be a Burlington rocker and this is one of his bands.
17.) Null – Five Seconds Expired 18.) Morning Again – Doll Fight 19.) Void – The Lavas 20.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
Another great new Rabbit song. Zola Turn evolved into Queen Tangerine who evolved into The Lavas. I’ve always liked that song. Doll Fight used to rock this town hard, and featured Jane Boxall Percussion who also plays drums on the new Rabbit album. This is another classic band from the ’90’s.
Killer song recorded live at Nectar’s. I just loved Vetica. So, this week a couple of things happened in the psyche of America and we took a couple of small steps towards dealing with racial issues. The Fair Housing Act was upheld and many businesses have started disassociating themselves with symbols that promote ideas of separation, when in fact, we all started from the same root. Here are some songs about getting past the physical and seeing people for who they are, not just what they look like.
Bernie has been fighting for everyone to get an equal chance for decades. Run Bernie Run! Bill told it like no one else could. Joe just nailed the idea of inclusion on that one. Binger do the same on these three.
27.) Sequoia I, II, and III – Binger 28.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: Arc Of The Curve – Fish
