  • Thom

    Lets go

  • Paul Slavens

    I am here , shall we commence?

  • wilson

    Paul! Sorry we at the Chat didn’t appreciate your improv show enough. I miss it.

    Anyway, play some Waits, if you don’t mind.

  • redz

    good evening Paul…how about: anything by the Lime Spiders, 13th Floor Elevators, Riuchi Sakamoto, and some good old Robert Palmer (circa Sneakin Sally thru the Alley)? Have a great night!

  • Thom

    Everyone must be celebrating the cowboy win. 27-24 in OT.
    Go Cowboys!

  • Gregor

    I really liked that Eleanor Friedberger track, so I went searching and whatta you know, it’s a free download on Amazon. Cool.

  • Ray Worth

    Is that Rita AKA Ranger Rita that just did the 2nd aniversary spot?

  • Lawrence Sutherland

    Hey, Paul~

    if you’re able to find anything interesting by the semi-prog Herd of Instinct, I’d like to hear it 🙂



  • Russell

    Thank you for the Townes … it’s power abides

  • Russell

    and thanks for the Joni 😉

  • Regan

    Hail! Falling from the sky.

  • Russell

    further on up the road: the inimitable Michael Chapman; your favorite track by the Rev. Horton Heat; any Daniel Lanois you find striking your fancy

  • Thom

    Couple of of suggestions for you Paul:

    Something from Peter Murphy off of ‘Deep’, like: ‘The Line Between the Devils Teeth (and that which cannot be Repeat)’

    Pink Floyd – ‘Grantchester Meadows’ from ‘Ummagumma’ (kinda long,but…no one else will play it, so there is the challenge)

    Sarah Jaffe – ‘Clementine’ from ‘Suburban Nature’

  • Russell

    good mix, Paul … excellent show, as always. Thank you!

  • Regan

    Superchunk Green Flowers Blue Fish

  • Raybies

    Paul, may want to try a new artist out of New Zealand. Her name is Kimbra. Her videos are amazing as well. I don’t know if her songs have been released here in the US though.

  • redz

    *thumbsup* to the Rev. Horton Hat and Peter Murphy!

  • Gregor

    Who Are The Brain Police? Excellent!!!

  • Hey Paul, great show tonight! You mentioned John Maus was playing a New Years Eve show. He is actually playing The Warehouse at The Panhandle House in Denton with HEALTH that night.

  • James Lovell

    Thanx for the Zappa, Dumpstaphunk & that song about a lady unwilling to marry a conspiracy theorist…I’d kinda like to hear some more Cadillac Jones soon. Anything from The Big Takedown would be most groovy.

  • Paul Slavens

    thanks for joining in on the fun. I will peruse your suggestions for next week.
    cheers !!

  • Ray Worth
