    I like the show. Very unpretentious and very eclectic. Here are some songs I haven’t heard in a very long time:
    Bad Finger – Perfection
    Flash and The Pan – On The Road
    Del Lords – Soldiers Home (may be difficult to find)
    Mink DeVille – Each Word Is A Beat of My Heart
    anything by A.C Reed
    maybe something from A.B. Skhy

    Thanks for the heard work,

    Evening Paul,
    How about “Dave’s Gone Skiing” – Toto.

    • pslavens_kera

      does it have many minor seven flat five chords?

      • Kurt

        No… Every thing is in a major key… Very… well, OK, there may be one diminished chord. But you’ll hardly notice!

  • lola

    Neo-Kontroll from the Kontroll Soundtrack

    Glass Candy- Digital Versicolor from Bronson Soundtrack

    • pslavens_kera

      this sounds interesting, havent heard either of these

  • neon cobra

    Good evening Mr. Slavens. Wonderful show already tonight. Midlake was nice. Thanks for what you do sir.
    The Coral – “Pass It On”
    Dead Meadow – “Let It All Pass”
    The Decemberists – “June Hymn”

    • pslavens_kera

      thank you so much!
      A nice little mini list, I think I can accomodate you

  • Aramis

    Paul, do you have anything by Hashbrown?

    • pslavens_kera

      no! It would be great to have some, maybe somebody has some, or can you download it anywhere?

  • JP Russo

    I think it would be cool to hear a little more from the Sgt. Disco recording by Circus Devils. Maybe Lance the Boiling Son, Nicky Highpockets or War Horsies could grace the airwaves. I think the text is all ok but double check before you play one. Don’t want to tick off the powers that be or get you in hot water.

    Great show last night! My favorite part was when “C’est Si Bon” came on and my teenage daughter gave me that “WHAT are you LISTENING to??” look. 🙂

    One of my favorites is Sufjan Steven’s “Now That I’m Older” (from Age of Adz). If that one’s too strange… I dig the unhurried synth sounds in “I Walked.” In fact that whole album (as well as “Illinoise”) is very creative.
