Words by Tim Lewis.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm,org. I played an homage to Dark Side Of The Mountain’s homage to Pink Floyd, and some songs about Bernie Sanders.

Songs before:The Bomb – The Mountain Says No (not chosen by me, it just came up in the queue before the songs I picked.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail Song In Space – The Church Sparks – The Color Exchange Clash City Rockers – The Clash

recording begins Song before: Judy Is A Punk – The Ramones



From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Former Mayor of Burlington, Bernie Sanders, did pretty well by winning four states on Super Tuesday. It’s so inspiring to see him doing so well in his run for the US Presidency. He is that rare politician who lays our specific plans to make life easier for Americans, so it’s inspiring to hear him speak, but is really inspiring because of his record of accomplishment. He has inspired a lot of citizens and artists and musicians. Here is some music inspired by Bernie Sanders.

1.) I Saw Bernie Sanders At Al’s French Fries – Patrick Heltz 2.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists 3.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday 4.) Bernie Is A Punk – Bern Unit

Nice reworking of the Ramones Judy Is A Punk by the California band. Violint is a woman named Emma Sky who used to live in town. I love the references to knowing Bernie personally and the humable Feel The Bern chorus. Lovely song from Kat WrightBob Wagner, and the rest of the crew. It was great seeing lots of those musicians on stage with Bernie in Essex on Tuesday night. Great song from Patrick about seeing Bernie about town. Bernie and Al’s are two Burlington classics. Last week I finished the last song from the Black Rabbit album Red Flannel Hash. It’s time to start a new album to play song after song, week after week, until it’s done. Of course, it will be the album that Bernie Sanders recorded back in the 80’s with 30 Vermont musicians.

5.) Oh, Freedom – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Musicians 6.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks 7.) Freeway – David Rosane and the Zookeepers 8.) If I Knew – Binger

I love the vitality of the lyric in the Binger song. The whole set was about people getting along and working together to make a great world. Freeway has that feel, and is a good rocking song. Bill was a preacher on par with none, and one of the funniest people who ever walked the planet. Yea Bernie. So, something cool happened this week. Alpenglow released their first full length album.

9.) Been So Long – Alpenglow 10.) Northern Skies – The Lindbergh Baby 11.) The Blackout – The Static Age 12.) Stop – REDadmiral

Great fun rocker from Admiral. I love the sound and flow of the Static song. I used to work with Scott Broderick and love that song from his band. Hmmm, Alpenglow. So, I saw a cool show last week at the Rusty Nail in Stowe. They ran a school bus from Nectar’s to the show, so I took the ride and saw Dark Side of the Mountain play a stunning Pink Floyd tribute show. This was the encore.

13.) Echoes->Comfortably Numb->Echoes

Because, if you are going to play a 23 minute song for your encore, why not throw in another 7 minute one in the drifty section in the middle. Stunning show. This next artist has been playing her well crafted songs all around.

14.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard 15.) Poem For Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey 16.) No Countries – And The Kids 17.) Popular Crowd – Swale

Great rocker from the great band. Kids have been playing a ton of shows all over lately. Go see them if you ever get a chance. That is such an epic song from Peg. Sadly, she just lost her mom. My heart goes out to you Peg! This next band played Metal Mondays last year and blew me away. They came back this Monday and played another great show.

18.) Crystal King – Holy Grail 19.) A Different Machine (live) – Elephants Of Scotland

Killer song from the local prog band who occasionally plays Metal Mondays too. Grail rocked last Monday! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Good bye. See Ya. Ciao.

20.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit outro
