    Good evening Paul, will be listening tonite and try to suggest some stuff during the show…. !!!
    Francois

  • wow, Fracois , you beat me to the blog
    well here I am and its great to have everyone here
    should be a fun show
    I got a lot of suggestions last week and I couldnt get to a lot of them because I am doing the Halloween hour. That means next week is going to be a very interesting night of music.

    ok, let me hear your suggestions!

  • Mike W

    Thanks for playing Dennis Gonzalez, he used to be a fixture on this station. His career is back on track lately, thanks to some great European labels. His sons have turned out to be world class as well.
    Couple of suggestions for next week:

    Deerhunter-Microcastle
    Atlas Sound (side project of Deerhunter lead singer Brandon Cox)

  • Kelly Alexander

    hey Paul. Happy hall-o-ween! here’s what i’m listening to lately.

    MF -Doom Presents Unexpected Guests. possibly some ADULT content here.

    Soulico_Exotic On The Speaker. smashing ethno-dub bollywood business with everyone from M.I.A. protege Rye Rye to Ghostface Killah to Del Tha’ Funky Homosapien

    Tegan and Sara-Sainthood. they’ve grown up before our eyes and are their new songs are shorter sharper and just as insightful.

    Fever Ray-Fever Ray. along the lines of your love affair with The Knife, Karin Drijer-Anderrson’s solo outing will make you very happy. she’s a disturbed young woman.

    Alice Russell-Pot Of Gold(Remixes)-THE best living Soul singer today, regardless of the fact that she’s a tiny, white, British woman.

    N’Dambi-Pink Elephant. local girl gone BIG time. from singing back-up for Ms. Badu to L.A./N.Y. fame and royalty. a LOVELY woman and a ferocious singer.

    hope all is well, best regards. Kelly Alexander.

    • yeah, I got turned on to Fever Ray a month or so ago. I really like it, actually thats how I heard about The Knife.

      thanks for the tasty suggestions

  • Jeff Ryan

    Bela Legosi

  • Typhoid Cory

    Yay for Halloweenery. I will enjoy a show about death and macabre terror, as I am enjoying a nice case of the Probably-Not-Swine-Flu-But-What’s-The-Difference-Anyway.

    I think that one of the important aspects of any healthcare reform that gets passed should be a requirement that makers of fine over-the-counter unguents and liniments should not be allowed to portray their product as possessing the flavor of delicious fruits such as cherries and lemons when they in fact taste not entirely dissimilar to a hobo’s toes. Hey, it was a long time ago and I needed the money. Whatta ya gonna do.

  • Philip

    Could you repeat the name of the Leo Ferre song you played again please? How come you no longer post your lists online the night you play them?

  • ash

    got any burzum?

    i like the album Filosofem.

    or how about some Hugh Mundell. “Africa must be free by 1983” ?

  • Dan

    Paul,

    Another great show. A couple of artists you might contemplate playing are Django Reinhardt, Les Paul and/or Chet Atkins, Ronnie Dawson (a local rockabilly guitarist), and Eddie Lang. Sure, that list leans heavily toward the guitar, but what the hey? Not everyone can be Lionel Hampton (someone else you ought to play).

    P.S. Todd requested Polyglot Science Boy

    • wow
      Polyglot Science Boy does not exist in recorded form
      or any other form that I recall

    • Dan

      That’s too bad. Todd was pretty specific but was afraid that would be your answer.

  • Diane Brantley

    Well since the TX Ranger’s season is over I’m back to listening to your program. Since I am old, I listen to old stuff. How about Ely’s Coming by Three Dog Night. I know sometimes you go off the rails and play old stuff from the 60’s and 70’s. Thanks.

    • I have played that song a couple times over the last 5 years
      I dont consider it going off the rails at all
      I also like to play the original version by Laura Nyro

  • Michael

    a suggestion:
    Lindsey Buckingham’s version of ‘September Song’

  • Francois

    Paul could you play some Brian Ferry sometimes? There was that song, “avalon” I think, was great, I am sure you know him…
    Francois

    • well, I just played Roxy Music which is of course Brian Ferry, Avalon is actually a Roxy Music record.
      but I will find my copy of Bete Noir and find something for you for next week
      were you familiar with the Leo Ferre that I played?

  • michele

    Hey, Thanks for Waves!!!

    Nothing says Halloween like bella lugosi’s dead by Bahaus.

  • Jeff Barnes-my hero

  • Lawrence Sutherland

    You’ve played Poe’s “The Raven,” which made me think of Gavin Friday’s “Peter and the Wolf.”

  • Paul,
    A favorite film, TapeHeads, featured the Swanky Modes, would you play something from the soundtrack? (the whole thing is pretty groovy.)

  • Brooke

    Oh crap. Requesting ‘The Carny’ by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Creepy stuff.

  • Jim Stafford can be seen in Branson, Daily!
    Mac David and the Hudson Brothers too?

  • Nathan

    Here are some suggestions for tonight’s theme”

    Over at the Frankenstein Place from Rocky Horror
    Louis Armstrong, Ol’ Man Mose
    Louis Armstrong, Skeleton in the Closet
    Gnarls Barkley, The Boogie Monster
    Shel Silverstein, Monsters I’ve Met
    The Normal, Warm Leatherette
    Schubert’s Erlkonig

    Paul, the thunder tonight is complementing the theme in a great way.

    Nathan in Denton

    • Nathan,
      great list!

      How bout Grace Jones version Warm Letherette?

  • victor

    would love to hear some Sigur Rós sometime soon.

  • Max

    Anything by Nick Cave is creepy enough to play on this rotation. Some David Bowie would be appropriate too, like “Station to Station” or “The Supermen”.

  • those were great halloween suggestions
    I should have asked for them last week

    I will try to get some Sigur Ros on for you next week
    cheers

  • Dan

    Paul,

    Could you play some Camper Van Beethoven?

  • thats about it
    happy halloween and thanks for you suggestions and good company
    stay dry
    see you next week !!

  • Ed in Arlington

    Just got back in after listening to much of the program in the car. I really enjoyed “Fur” by Blitzen Trapper – I doubt I’d have ever come across it it you hadn’t played it for us.

    And thanks for Mary Hopkin’s “Goodbye”. Perhaps most listeners don’t know that that song was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney (sp.?), and that she was, I believe, their first signee to the Beatles’ Apple Corps label.

    Salud,
    Ed in Arlington

  • Dan

    Thanks for the Misfits and the Nordine. Another great show.
