Radio Show 138 Thursday December 10, 2015 9-11PM Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG Featuring The Mountain Says No live At WRUV December 9, 2015
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. I highlighted a couple of the artists who make our town great, one who just left and one who is still playing for us. I also highlighted one of the great institutions that have brought music to our town for decades.
Before: Sealine – The Church Band The Man’s Too Strong – Dire Straits recording begins
Song before: Orion – Jethro Tull
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight I want to highlight a couple of cool musicians who have brought so much to our town. I’ll get to that in a moment but first something cool happened earlier this week. I finally looked up in the sky and saw Orion. Despite the 50 degree temperatures today, you know winter is coming when Orion appears. This is my favorite local song about Orion.
Justus Gaston plays guitar both in Sad Turtle and Wave. He’s a pretty cool guy and also plays drums in another cool band. I’ll get to that in a moment. For as long as I have been seeing and listening to music in town there has been a radio station from UVM that has taught people how to be DJ’s and has brought lots of underground music to any who want to listen. The have also done a stunning job of supporting local music for decades. Their local music show is called WRUV Exposure and happens every Wednesday. A few days ago the host, Dom the Barber, sent me a message that one of my favorite local bands would be playing live in the studio. He invited me to join them for the performance and to chat on the air in between songs. That happened yesterday, December 9th from 6:30-8pm. Dom sent me an mp3 of the show and I’m going to play the whole thing for you now. This band features Justus Gaston on drums and this is The Mountain Says No.

Hey guys, Tim here back in the studio. I think I played that whole thing for a few reasons. That is exactly what WRUV sounds like and has always sounded like. I really wanted to thank Justus for all of his contributions to our music scene, and to thanks Andrew Frappier, Ben Maddox, and Jedd Kettler for the same reason. I did it because that was a band playing a full live set that happened in town yesterday so is the sound of Burlington by definition. I did it mostly because I had it as one file and I really wanted to play both new Mountain songs on my show. Up next, I want to thank another person who has put a ton of music into our town. His name is Justin Gonyea and he has promoted a ton of shows at 242 Main and has played in a few bands. He’s off to Seattle and we wish him the best of luck. I’ll play a bunch of his music as a thank you for all he has added. But, before that, let’s play the second song on Red Flannel Hash, the album I am playing all the way through, song for song, week after week.
Justin played in Doom, Skull and did the Crime Scene thing with Bobby Hackney Jr.., Matthew Kimball and a few others just before leaving town. Thank you Justin!!!! Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
